Yet not as I will, but as you will."

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 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, 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 and found them asleep again: 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, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying 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 same is he; hold him fast. 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, who were with Jesus, stretched out [his] hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest, and smote 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 with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me. 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.
56 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled. 56 But this has all taken place that the writings of the prophets might be fulfilled." Then all the disciples deserted him and fled.

63 But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said to 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 saith to him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say to you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. 64 "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied.

65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his 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.
66 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death. 66 What do you think?" "He is worthy of death," they answered.

72 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man. 72 He denied it again, with an oath: "I don't know the man!"
73 And after a while came to [him] they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art [one] of them; for thy speech betrayeth thee. 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, [saying], I know not the man. And immediately the cock crowed. 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 of Jesus, who said to him, Before the cock shall crow, thou wilt 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.
