Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now just before the Feast of the Passover this incident took place. Jesus knew that the time had come for Him to leave this world and go to the Father; and having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end. 1 It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love.
2 While supper was proceeding, the Devil having by this time suggested to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, the thought of betraying Him, Jesus, 2 The evening meal was being served, and the devil had already prompted Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Jesus.
3 although He knew that the Father had put everything into His hands, and that He had come forth from God and was now going to God, 3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God;
4 rose from the table, threw off His upper garments, and took a towel and tied it round Him. 4 so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist.
5 Then He poured water into a basin, and proceeded to wash the feet of the disciples and to wipe them with the towel which He had put round Him. 5 After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
6 When He came to Simon Peter, Peter objected. "Master," he said, "are *you* going to wash my feet?" 6 He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, are you going to wash my feet?"
7 "What I am doing," answered Jesus, "for the present you do not know, but afterwards you shall know." 7 Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand."
8 "Never, while the world lasts," said Peter, "shall you wash my feet." "If I do not wash you," replied Jesus, "you have no share with me." 8 "No," said Peter, "you shall never wash my feet." Jesus answered, "Unless I wash you, you have no part with me."
9 "Master," said Peter, "wash not only my feet, but also my hands and my head." 9 "Then, Lord," Simon Peter replied, "not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!"
10 "Any one who has lately bathed," said Jesus, "does not need to wash more than his feet, but is clean all over. And you my disciples are clean, and yet this is not true of all of you." 10 Jesus answered, "A person who has had a bath needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you."
11 For He knew who was betraying Him, and that was why He said, "You are not all of you clean." 11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.
12 So after He had washed their feet, put on His garments again, and returned to the table, He said to them, "Do you understand what I have done to you? 12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. "Do you understand what I have done for you?" he asked them.
13 You call me `The Rabbi' and `The Master,' and rightly so, for such I am. 13 "You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and rightly so, for that is what I am.
14 If I then, your Master and Rabbi, have washed your feet, it is also your duty to wash one another's feet. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet.
15 For I have set you an example in order that you may do what I have done to you. 15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.
16 In most solemn truth I tell you that a servant is not superior to his master, nor is a messenger superior to him who sent him. 16 I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.
17 If you know all this, blessed are you if you act accordingly. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
18 I am not speaking of all of you. I know whom I have chosen, but things are as they are in order that the Scripture may be fulfilled, which says, `He who eats my bread has lifted up his heel against me.' 18 "I am not referring to all of you; I know those I have chosen. But this is to fulfill the scripture: 'He who shares my bread has lifted up his heel against me.'
19 From this time forward I tell you things before they happen, in order that when they do happen you may believe that I am He. 19 "I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am He.
20 In most solemn truth I tell you that he who receives whoever I send receives me, and that he who receives me receives Him who sent me." 20 I tell you the truth, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me."
21 After speaking thus Jesus was troubled in spirit and said with deep earnestness, "In most solemn truth I tell you that one of you will betray me." 21 After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, "I tell you the truth, one of you is going to betray me."
22 The disciples began looking at one another, at a loss to know to which of them He was referring. 22 His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant.
23 There was at table one of His disciples--the one Jesus loved-- reclining with his head on Jesus's bosom. 23 One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him.
24 Making a sign therefore to him, Simon Peter said, "Tell us to whom he is referring." 24 Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, "Ask him which one he means."
25 So he, having his head on Jesus's bosom, leaned back and asked, "Master, who is it?" 25 Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, "Lord, who is it?"
26 "It is the one," answered Jesus, "for whom I shall dip this piece of bread and to whom I shall give it." Accordingly He dipped the piece of bread, and took it and gave it to Judas, the son of the Iscariot Simon. 26 Jesus answered, "It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish." Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, son of Simon.
27 Then, after Judas had received the piece of bread, Satan entered into him. "Lose no time about it," said Jesus to him. 27 As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. "What you are about to do, do quickly," Jesus told him,
28 But why He said this no one else at the table understood. 28 but no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him.
29 Some, however, supposed that because Judas had the money-box Jesus meant, "Buy what we require for the Festival," or that he should give something to the poor. 29 Since Judas had charge of the money, some thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the Feast, or to give something to the poor.
30 So Judas took the piece of bread and immediately went out. And it was night. 30 As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night.
31 So when he was gone out, Jesus said, "Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in Him. 31 When he was gone, Jesus said, "Now is the Son of Man glorified and God is glorified in him.
32 Moreover God will glorify Him in Himself, and will glorify Him without delay. 32 If God is glorified in him, God will glorify the Son in himself, and will glorify him at once.
33 Dear children, I am still with you a little longer. You will seek me, but, as I said to the Jews, `Where I am going you cannot come,' so for the present I say to you. 33 "My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.
34 A new commandment I give you, to love one another; that as I have loved you, you also may love one another. 34 "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
35 It is by this that every one will know that you are my disciples--if you love one another." 35 By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
36 "Master," inquired Simon Peter, "where are you going?" "Where I am going," replied Jesus, "you cannot be my follower now, but you shall be later." 36 Simon Peter asked him, "Lord, where are you going?" Jesus replied, "Where I am going, you cannot follow now, but you will follow later."
37 "Master," asked Peter again, "why cannot I follow you now? I will lay down my life on your behalf. 37 Peter asked, "Lord, why can't I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you."
38 "You say you will lay down your life on my behalf!" said Jesus; "in most solemn truth I tell you that the cock will not crow before you have three times disowned me." 38 Then Jesus answered, "Will you really lay down your life for me? I tell you the truth, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!
