Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 After Jesus had said these things, He went out with His disciples across the Kidron Valley, where there was a garden, and He and His disciples went into it. 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 Judas, who betrayed Him, also knew the place, because Jesus often met 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 took a company of soldiers and some temple police from the chief priests and the Pharisees and came there with lanterns, torches, 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 Then Jesus, knowing everything that was about to happen to Him, went out and said to them, "Who is it you're looking for?" 4 Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, "Who is it you want?"
5 "Jesus the Nazarene," they answered. "I am He," Jesus told them. Judas, who betrayed 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 When He told them, "I am He," they stepped back and fell to the ground. 6 When Jesus said, "I am he," they drew back and fell to the ground.
7 Then He asked them again, "Who is it you're looking for?" "Jesus the Nazarene," they said. 7 Again he asked them, "Who is it you want?" And they said, "Jesus of Nazareth."
8 "I told you I am [He]," Jesus replied. "So if you're looking for Me, let these men go." 8 "I told you that I am he," Jesus answered. "If you are looking for me, then let these men go."
9 This was to fulfill the words He had said: "I have not lost one of those You have given Me." 9 This happened so that the words he had spoken would be fulfilled: "I have not lost one of those you gave me."
10 Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it, struck the high priest's slave, and cut off his right ear. (The slave'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 At that, Jesus said to Peter, "Sheathe your sword! Am I not to drink the cup the Father has given Me?" 11 Jesus commanded Peter, "Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?"
12 Then the company of soldiers, the commander, and the Jewish temple police arrested Jesus and tied Him up. 12 Then the detachment of soldiers with its commander and the Jewish officials arrested Jesus. They bound him
13 First they led Him to Annas, for he 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 Caiaphas was the one who had advised the Jews that it was advantageous 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, as was another disciple. That disciple was an acquaintance of the high priest; so he went with Jesus into the high priest's courtyard. 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 by the door. So the other disciple, the one known to the high priest, went out and spoke to the girl who was the doorkeeper and brought 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 Then the slave girl who was the doorkeeper said to Peter, "You aren't one of this man's disciples too, are you?" "I am not!" he said. 17 "You are not one of his disciples, are you?" the girl at the door asked Peter. He replied, "I am not."
18 Now the slaves and the temple police had made a charcoal fire, because it was cold. They were standing there warming themselves, and Peter was standing with them, 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 The high priest questioned Jesus about His disciples and about His teaching. 19 Meanwhile, the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching.
20 "I have spoken openly to the world," Jesus answered him. "I have always taught in the synagogue and in the temple complex, where all the Jews congregate, and I haven't spoken anything 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 I told them. Look, they know what I said." 21 Why question me? Ask those who heard me. Surely they know what I said."
22 When He had said these things, one of the temple police standing by slapped Jesus, saying, "Is this 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," Jesus answered him, "give evidence about the wrong; but if rightly, why do you hit Me?" 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 Then Annas sent Him bound to Caiaphas the high priest. 24 Then Annas sent him, still bound, to Caiaphas the high priest.
25 Now Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. They said to him, "You aren't one of His disciples too, are you?" He denied it and said, "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 slaves, a relative of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, said, "Didn't I see you with Him in the garden?" 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 Peter then denied it again. Immediately a rooster crowed. 27 Again Peter denied it, and at that moment a rooster began to crow.
28 Then they took Jesus from Caiaphas to the governor's headquarters. It was early morning. They did not enter the headquarters themselves; otherwise they would be defiled and unable 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 Then Pilate came out to them and said, "What charge do you bring against this man?" 29 So Pilate came out to them and asked, "What charges are you bringing against this man?"
30 They answered him, "If this man weren't a criminal, we wouldn't 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 So Pilate told them, "Take Him yourselves and judge Him according to your law." "It's not legal for us to put anyone to death," the Jews declared. 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 so that Jesus' words might be fulfilled signifying what sort of death He was going 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 Then Pilate went back into the headquarters, summoned Jesus, and said to 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 Jesus answered, "Are you asking this on your own, or have others told you about Me?" 34 "Is that your own idea," Jesus asked, "or did others talk to you about me?"
35 "I'm not a Jew, am I?" Pilate replied. "Your own nation and the chief priests 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 is not of this world," said Jesus. "If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I wouldn't be handed over to the Jews. As it is, My kingdom does not have its origin here." 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 "You are a king then?" Pilate asked. "You say that I'm a king," Jesus replied. "I was born for this, and I have come into the world for this: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is 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. After he had said this, he went out to the Jews again and told them, "I find no grounds for charging 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 You have a custom that I release one [prisoner] to you at the Passover. So, do you want me to 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 They shouted back, "Not this man, but Barabbas!" Now Barabbas was a revolutionary. 40 They shouted back, "No, not him! Give us Barabbas!" Now Barabbas had taken part in a rebellion.
