Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 After offering this prayer Jesus went out with His disciples to a place on the further side of the Ravine of the Cedars, where there was a garden which He entered--Himself and His disciples. 1 When he had finished praying, Jesus left with his disciples and crossed the Kidron Valley. On the other side there was an olive grove, and he and his disciples went into it.
2 Now Judas also, who at that very time was betraying Him, knew the place, for Jesus had often resorted there with His disciples. 2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples.
3 So Judas, followed by the battalion and by a detachment of the Temple police sent by the High Priests and Pharisees, came there with torches and lamps and weapons. 3 So Judas came to the grove, guiding a detachment of soldiers and some officials from the chief priests and Pharisees. They were carrying torches, lanterns and weapons.
4 Jesus therefore, knowing all that was about to befall Him, went out to meet them. "Who are you looking for?" He asked them. 4 Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, "Who is it you want?"
5 "For Jesus the Nazarene," was the answer. "I am he," He replied. (Now Judas who was betraying Him was also standing with them.) 5 "Jesus of Nazareth," they replied. "I am he," Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.)
6 As soon then as He said to them, "I am he," they went backwards and fell to the ground. 6 When Jesus said, "I am he," they drew back and fell to the ground.
7 Again therefore He asked them, "Who are you looking for?" "For Jesus the Nazarene," they said. 7 Again he asked them, "Who is it you want?" And they said, "Jesus of Nazareth."
8 "I have told you," replied Jesus, "that I am he. If therefore you are looking for me, let these my disciples go their way." 8 "I told you that I am he," Jesus answered. "If you are looking for me, then let these men go."
9 He made this request in order that the words He had spoken might be fulfilled, "As for those whom Thou hast given me, I have not lost one." 9 This happened so that the words he had spoken would be fulfilled: "I have not lost one of those you gave me."
10 Simon Peter, however, having a sword, drew it, and, aiming at the High Priest's servant, cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus. 10 Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant, cutting off his right ear. (The servant's name was Malchus.)
11 Jesus therefore said to Peter, "Put back your sword. Shall I refuse to drink the cup of sorrow which the Father has given me to drink?" 11 Jesus commanded Peter, "Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?"
12 So the battalion and their tribune and the Jewish police closed in, and took Jesus and bound Him. 12 Then the detachment of soldiers with its commander and the Jewish officials arrested Jesus. They bound him
13 They then brought Him to Annas first; for Annas was the father-in-law of Caiaphas who was High Priest that year. 13 and brought him first to Annas, who was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest that year.
14 (It was this Caiaphas who had advised the Jews, saying, "It is to your interest that one man should die for the People.") 14 Caiaphas was the one who had advised the Jews that it would be good if one man died for the people.
15 Meanwhile Simon Peter was following Jesus, and so also was another disciple. The latter was known to the High Priest, and went in with Jesus into the court of the High Priest's palace. 15 Simon Peter and another disciple were following Jesus. Because this disciple was known to the high priest, he went with Jesus into the high priest's courtyard,
16 But Peter remained standing outside the door, till the disciple who was acquainted with the High Priest came out and induced the portress to let Peter in. 16 but Peter had to wait outside at the door. The other disciple, who was known to the high priest, came back, spoke to the girl on duty there and brought Peter in.
17 This led the girl, the portress, to ask Peter, "Are you also one of this man's disciples?" "No, I am not," he replied. 17 "You are not one of his disciples, are you?" the girl at the door asked Peter. He replied, "I am not."
18 Now because it was cold the servants and the police had lighted a charcoal fire, and were standing and warming themselves; and Peter too remained with them, standing and warming himself. 18 It was cold, and the servants and officials stood around a fire they had made to keep warm. Peter also was standing with them, warming himself.
19 So the High Priest questioned Jesus about His disciples and His teaching. 19 Meanwhile, the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching.
20 "As for me," replied Jesus, "I have spoken openly to the world. I have continually taught in some synagogue or in the Temple where all the Jews are wont to assemble, and I have said nothing in secret. 20 "I have spoken openly to the world," Jesus replied. "I always taught in synagogues or at the temple, where all the Jews come together. I said nothing in secret.
21 Why do you question me? Question those who heard what it was I said to them: these witnesses here know what I said." 21 Why question me? Ask those who heard me. Surely they know what I said."
22 Upon His saying this, one of the officers standing by struck Him with his open hand, asking Him as he did so, "Is that the way you answer the High Priest?" 22 When Jesus said this, one of the officials nearby struck him in the face. "Is this the way you answer the high priest?" he demanded.
23 "If I have spoken wrongly," replied Jesus, "bear witness to it as wrong; but if rightly, why that blow?" 23 "If I said something wrong," Jesus replied, "testify as to what is wrong. But if I spoke the truth, why did you strike me?"
24 So Annas sent Him bound to Caiaphas the High Priest. 24 Then Annas sent him, still bound, to Caiaphas the high priest.
25 But Simon Peter remained standing and warming himself, and this led to their asking him, "Are you also one of his disciples?" He denied it, and said, "No, I am not." 25 As Simon Peter stood warming himself, he was asked, "You are not one of his disciples, are you?" He denied it, saying, "I am not."
26 One of the High Priest's servants, a relative of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, said, "Did I not see you in the garden with him?" 26 One of the high priest's servants, a relative of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, challenged him, "Didn't I see you with him in the olive grove?"
27 Once more Peter denied it, and immediately a cock crowed. 27 Again Peter denied it, and at that moment a rooster began to crow.
28 So they brought Jesus from Caiaphas's house to the Praetorium. It was the early morning, and they would not enter the Praetorium themselves for fear of defilement, and in order that they might be able to eat the Passover. 28 Then the Jews led Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the Roman governor. By now it was early morning, and to avoid ceremonial uncleanness the Jews did not enter the palace; they wanted to be able to eat the Passover.
29 Accordingly Pilate came out to them and inquired, "What accusation have you to bring against this man?" 29 So Pilate came out to them and asked, "What charges are you bringing against this man?"
30 "If the man were not a criminal," they replied, "we would not have handed him over to you." 30 "If he were not a criminal," they replied, "we would not have handed him over to you."
31 "Take him yourselves," said Pilate, "and judge him by your Law." "We have no power," replied the Jews, "to put any man to death." 31 Pilate said, "Take him yourselves and judge him by your own law." "But we have no right to execute anyone," the Jews objected.
32 They said this that the words might be fulfilled in which Jesus predicted the kind of death He was to die. 32 This happened so that the words Jesus had spoken indicating the kind of death he was going to die would be fulfilled.
33 Re-entering the Praetorium, therefore, Pilate called Jesus and asked Him, "Are *you* the King of the Jews?" 33 Pilate then went back inside the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?"
34 "Do you say this of yourself, or have others told it you about me?" replied Jesus. 34 "Is that your own idea," Jesus asked, "or did others talk to you about me?"
35 "Am I a Jew?" exclaimed Pilate; "it is your own nation and the High Priests who have handed you over to me. What have you done?" 35 "Am I a Jew?" Pilate replied. "It was your people and your chief priests who handed you over to me. What is it you have done?"
36 "My kingdom," replied Jesus, "does not belong to this world. If my kingdom did belong to this world, my subjects would have resolutely fought to save me from being delivered up to the Jews. But, as a matter of fact, my kingdom has not this origin." 36 Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place."
37 "So then *you* are a king!" rejoined Pilate. "Yes," said Jesus, "you say truly that I am a king. For this purpose I was born, and for this purpose I have come into the world--to give testimony for the truth. Every one who is a friend of the truth listens to my voice." 37 "You are a king, then!" said Pilate. Jesus answered, "You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me."
38 "What is truth?" said Pilate. But no sooner had he spoken the words than he went out again to the Jews and told them, "I find no crime in him. 38 "What is truth?" Pilate asked. With this he went out again to the Jews and said, "I find no basis for a charge against him.
39 But you have a custom that I should release one prisoner to you at the Passover. So shall I release to you the King of the Jews?" 39 But it is your custom for me to release to you one prisoner at the time of the Passover. Do you want me to release 'the king of the Jews'?"
40 With a roar of voices they again cried out, saying, "Not this man, but Barabbas!" Now Barabbas was a robber. 40 They shouted back, "No, not him! Give us Barabbas!" Now Barabbas had taken part in a rebellion.
