New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 When Jesus had spoken these words, He went out with His disciples over the Brook Kidron, where there was a garden, which He and His disciples entered. 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 And Judas, who betrayed Him, also knew the place; for 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 Then Judas, having received a detachment of troops, and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, 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 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that would come upon Him, went forward and said to them, "Whom are you seeking?" 4 Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, "Who is it you want?"
5 They answered Him, "Jesus of Nazareth." Jesus said to them, "I am He." And Judas, who betrayed Him, also stood with them. 5 "Jesus of Nazareth," they replied. "I am he," Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.)
6 Now when He said to them, "I am He," they drew 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, "Whom are you seeking?" And they said, "Jesus of Nazareth." 7 Again he asked them, "Who is it you want?" And they said, "Jesus of Nazareth."
8 Jesus answered, "I have told you that I am He. Therefore, if you seek Me, let these 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 that the saying might be fulfilled which He spoke, "Of those whom You gave Me I have lost none." 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, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant, and 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 So Jesus said to Peter, "Put your sword into the sheath. Shall I not drink the cup which My 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 detachment of troops and the captain and the officers of the Jews arrested Jesus and bound Him. 12 Then the detachment of soldiers with its commander and the Jewish officials arrested Jesus. They bound him
13 And they led Him away to Annas first, 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 Now it was Caiaphas who advised the Jews that it was expedient 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 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple. Now that disciple was known to the high priest, and went with Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest. 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 stood at the door outside. Then the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to her who kept the door, 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 servant girl who kept the door said to Peter, "You are not also one of this Man's disciples, are you?" He said, "I am not." 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 servants and officers who had made a fire of coals stood there, for it was cold, and they warmed themselves. And Peter stood with them and warmed 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 then asked Jesus about His disciples and His doctrine. 19 Meanwhile, the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching.
20 Jesus answered him, "I spoke openly to the world. I always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where the Jews always meet, and in secret I have said nothing. 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 ask Me? Ask those who have heard Me what I said to them. Indeed they know what I said." 21 Why question me? Ask those who heard me. Surely they know what I said."
22 And when He had said these things, one of the officers who stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, "Do You answer the high priest like that?" 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 Jesus answered him, "If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil; but if well, why do you strike 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 stood and warmed himself. Therefore they said to him, "You are not also one of His disciples, 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 servants of the high priest, a relative of him whose ear Peter 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 Peter then denied again; and immediately a rooster crowed. 27 Again Peter denied it, and at that moment a rooster began to crow.
28 Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas to the Praetorium, and it was early morning. But they themselves did not go into the Praetorium, lest they should be defiled, but that they might 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 Pilate then went out to them and said, "What accusation 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 and said to him, "If He were not an evildoer, we would not have delivered Him up to you." 30 "If he were not a criminal," they replied, "we would not have handed him over to you."
31 Then Pilate said to them, "You take Him and judge Him according to your law." Therefore the Jews said to him, "It is not lawful for us to put anyone 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 that the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled which He spoke, signifying by what death He would 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 entered the Praetorium again, called 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 him, "Are you speaking for yourself about this, or did others tell you this concerning Me?" 34 "Is that your own idea," Jesus asked, "or did others talk to you about me?"
35 Pilate answered, "Am I a Jew? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered You 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 Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from 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 Pilate therefore said to Him, "Are You a king then?" Jesus answered, "You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears 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 Pilate said to Him, "What is truth?" And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them, "I find no fault in Him at all. 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 someone to you at the Passover. Do you therefore 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 Then they all cried again, 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.
