7 there came unto him a woman having an alabaster cruse of exceeding precious ointment, and she poured it upon his head, as he sat at meat. 7 a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table.
8 But when the disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste? 8 When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. "Why this waste?" they asked.
9 For this [ointment] might have been sold for much, and given to the poor. 9 "This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor."
10 But Jesus perceiving it said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me. 10 Aware of this, Jesus said to them, "Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me.
11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always. 11 The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me.
12 For in that she poured this ointment upon my body, she did it to prepare me for burial. 12 When she poured this perfume on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial.

17 Now on the first [day] of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying, Where wilt thou that we make ready for thee to eat the passover? 17 On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?"
18 And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Teacher saith, My time is at hand; I keep the passover at thy house with my disciples. 18 He replied, "Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, 'The Teacher says: My appointed time is near.

34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, that this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. 34 "I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times."
35 Peter saith unto him, Even if I must die with thee, [yet] will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples. 35 But Peter declared, "Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you." And all the other disciples said the same.

41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. 41 "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak."
42 Again a second time he went away, and prayed, saying, My Father, if this cannot pass away, except I drink it, thy will be done. 42 He went away a second time and prayed, "My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done."
43 And he came again and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. 43 When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy.
44 And he left them again, and went away, and prayed a third time, saying again the same words. 44 So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing.

48 Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is he: take him. 48 Now the betrayer had arranged a signal with them: "The one I kiss is the man; arrest him."

51 And behold, one of them that were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and smote the servant of the high priest, and struck off his ear. 51 With that, one of Jesus' companions reached for his sword, drew it out and struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his ear.

I sat daily in the temple teaching, and ye took me not. 55 At that time Jesus said to the crowd, "Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come out with swords and clubs to capture me? Every day I sat in the temple courts teaching, and you did not arrest me.

58 But Peter followed him afar off, unto the court of the high priest, and entered in, and sat with the officers, to see the end. 58 But Peter followed him at a distance, right up to the courtyard of the high priest. He entered and sat down with the guards to see the outcome.

63 But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou art the Christ, the Son of God. 63 But Jesus remained silent. The high priest said to him, "I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God."
64 Jesus said unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Henceforth ye shall see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven. 64 "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied.

65 Then the high priest rent his garments, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy: what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard the blasphemy: 65 Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, "He has spoken blasphemy! Why do we need any more witnesses? Look, now you have heard the blasphemy.

70 But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest. 70 But he denied it before them all. "I don't know what you're talking about," he said.

72 And again he denied with an oath, I know not the man. 72 He denied it again, with an oath: "I don't know the man!"
73 And after a little while they that stood by came and said to Peter, Of a truth thou also art [one] of them; for thy speech maketh thee known. 73 After a little while, those standing there went up to Peter and said, "Surely you are one of them, for your accent gives you away."
74 Then began he to curse and to swear, I know not the man. And straightway the cock crew. 74 Then he began to call down curses on himself and he swore to them, "I don't know the man!" Immediately a rooster crowed.
75 And Peter remembered the word which Jesus had said, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly. 75 Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken: "Before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times." And he went outside and wept bitterly.
