Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples across the Kidron valley, 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 Now 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 So Judas, procuring a band of soldiers and some officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, went there with lanterns and 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 all that was to befall him, came forward and said to them, "Whom do you seek?" 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." Judas, who betrayed him, was 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 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 Again he asked them, "Whom do you seek?" 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 told you that I am he; so, if you seek 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 fulfil the word which he had spoken, "Of those whom thou gavest me I lost not one." 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 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 Jesus said to Peter, "Put your sword into its sheath; shall I not drink the cup which 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 So the band of soldiers and their captain and the officers of the Jews seized Jesus and bound him. 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 Ca'iaphas, 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 It was Ca'iaphas who had given counsel to 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 Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple. As this disciple was known to the high priest, he entered the court of the high priest along with Jesus, 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 while Peter stood outside at the door. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to the maid 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 The maid who kept the door said to Peter, "Are not you also one of this man's disciples?" 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 had made a charcoal fire, because it was cold, and they were standing and warming themselves; Peter also was with them, standing and 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 then questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching. 19 Meanwhile, the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching.
20 Jesus answered him, "I have spoken openly to the world; I have always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where all Jews come together; I have said nothing secretly. 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; 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 this, one of the officers standing by struck Jesus with his hand, saying, "Is that how 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 Jesus answered him, "If I have spoken wrongly, bear witness to the wrong; but if I have spoken rightly, 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 Annas then sent him bound to Ca'iaphas 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, "Are not you also one of his disciples?" 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 kinsman of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, asked, "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 again denied it; and at once the cock crowed. 27 Again Peter denied it, and at that moment a rooster began to crow.
28 Then they led Jesus from the house of Ca'iaphas to the praetorium. It was early. They themselves did not enter the praetorium, so that they might not be defiled, but 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 So Pilate 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 him, "If this man were not an evildoer, we would not have handed him over." 30 "If he were not a criminal," they replied, "we would not have handed him over to you."
31 Pilate said to them, "Take him yourselves and judge him by your own law." The Jews said to him, "It is not lawful for us to put any man 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 This was to fulfil the word which Jesus had spoken to show by what death he was 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 Pilate entered the praetorium again and 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, "Do you say this of your own accord, or did others say it to you about 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 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 Jesus answered, "My kingship is not of this world; if my kingship were of this world, my servants would fight, that I might not be handed over to the Jews; but my kingship is not from the world." 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 said to him, "So you are a king?" Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the truth. Every one 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?" After he had said this, he went out to the Jews again, and told them, "I find no crime in 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 But you have a custom that I should release one man for you at the Passover; will you have me release for 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 cried out again, "Not this man, but Barab'bas!" Now Barab'bas was a robber. 40 They shouted back, "No, not him! Give us Barabbas!" Now Barabbas had taken part in a rebellion.
