John 18 WYC/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 When Jesus had said these things, he went out with his disciples over the strand of Cedron, where was a yard, or a garden, into which he entered, and his disciples. 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, that betrayed him, knew the place, for oft Jesus came thither with his disciples. 2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples.
3 Therefore when Judas had taken a company of knights, and ministers of the bishops and of the Pharisees, he came thither with lanterns, and brands, and arms. 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 And so Jesus witting all things that were to come on him, went forth, and said to them, Whom seek ye? 4 Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, "Who is it you want?"
5 They answered to him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith to them, I am. And Judas that betrayed him, stood with them. 5 "Jesus of Nazareth," they replied. "I am he," Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.)
6 And when he said to them, I am, they went aback, and fell down on the earth. 6 When Jesus said, "I am he," they drew back and fell to the ground.
7 And again he asked them, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. 7 Again he asked them, "Who is it you want?" And they said, "Jesus of Nazareth."
8 He answered to them, I said to you, that I am; therefore if ye seek me, suffer ye these to go away. 8 "I told you that I am he," Jesus answered. "If you are looking for me, then let these men go."
9 That the word which he said should be fulfilled, For I lost not any of them, which thou hast given to 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 Therefore Simon Peter had a sword, and drew it out [Therefore Simon Peter having a sword, drew it out], and smote the servant of the bishop, and cut off his right ear. And the name of the servant 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 Therefore Jesus said to Peter, Put thou thy sword into thy sheath [Send thou the sword into the sheath]; wilt thou not, that I drink the cup, that my Father gave to me? 11 Jesus commanded Peter, "Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?"
12 Therefore the company of knights, and the tribune, and the ministers of the Jews, took Jesus, and bound him, 12 Then the detachment of soldiers with its commander and the Jewish officials arrested Jesus. They bound him
13 and led him first to Annas [and led him to Annas first]; for he was [the] father of Caiaphas' wife, that was bishop of that year. 13 and brought him first to Annas, who was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest that year.
14 And it was Caiaphas, that gave counsel to the Jews, that it speedeth, that one man 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 But Simon Peter followed Jesus, and another disciple; and that disciple was known to the bishop. And he entered [in] with Jesus, into the hall of the bishop; 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 withoutforth. Therefore that other disciple, that was known to the bishop, went out, and said to the woman that kept the door, and brought in Peter. 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 And the damsel, keeper of the door, said to Peter, Whether thou art also 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 And the servants and [the] ministers stood at the coals, for it was cold, and they warmed them(selves); and Peter was with them, standing and warming him(self). 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 And the bishop asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his teaching. 19 Meanwhile, the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching.
20 Jesus answered to him, I have spoken openly to the world; I taught evermore in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither all the Jews came together, and in huddles I spake nothing [+I taught ever in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither all the Jews came together, and in private I spake 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 What askest thou me? ask them that heard me, what I have spoken to them; lo! they know, what things I have 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 ministers standing nigh, gave a buffet to Jesus, and said [saying], Answerest thou so to the bishop? 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 to him, If I have spoken evil, bear thou witnessing of evil; but if I said well, why smitest thou 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 And Annas sent him bound to Caiaphas, the bishop. 24 Then Annas sent him, still bound, to Caiaphas the high priest.
25 And Simon Peter stood, and warmed him(self); and they said to him [therefore they said to him], Whether also thou art his disciple? He denied, 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 bishop's servants, cousin of him, whose ear Peter cut off, said, Saw I thee not in the yard with him [said, Whether I saw not thee 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 And Peter again denied, and at once [and anon] the cock crew. 27 Again Peter denied it, and at that moment a rooster began to crow.
28 Then they led Jesus to Caiaphas (from Caiaphas), into the moot hall; and it was early, and they entered not into the moot hall, that they should not be defouled, but that they should eat pask. 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 Therefore Pilate went out withoutforth to them, and said, What accusing bring ye 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 this were not a misdoer, we had not betaken him to thee. 30 "If he were not a criminal," they replied, "we would not have handed him over to you."
31 Then Pilate saith to them, Take ye him, and deem ye him, after your law. And the Jews said to him [Therefore they said to him], It is not leaveful to us to slay any man; 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 word of Jesus should be fulfilled, which he said, signifying by what death he should 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 Therefore again Pilate entered into the moot hall, and called Jesus, and said to him, Art thou king of Jews? 33 Pilate then went back inside the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?"
34 Jesus answered, and said to him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or others have said to thee of me [Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or others said to thee of me]? 34 "Is that your own idea," Jesus asked, "or did others talk to you about me?"
35 Pilate answered, Whether I am a Jew? Thy folk and the bishops betook thee to me; what hast thou 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 ministers would strive, that I should not be taken to the Jews; but now my kingdom is not here [now forsooth my kingdom is not of hence]. 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 And so Pilate said to him, Then art thou a king? Jesus answered, Thou sayest, that I am a king. To this thing I am born, and to this I came into the world, to bear witnessing to truth [and to this I came into the world, that I bear witnessing to truth]. Each [man] that is of truth, heareth 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 saith to him, What is truth? And when he had said this thing, again he went out to the Jews, and said to them, I find no cause in him [I find no cause against 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 it is a custom to you, that I deliver one to you in pask; therefore will ye that I deliver to you the king of Jews? [Forsooth it is a custom to you, that I let go, or deliver, one to you in pask; therefore will ye that I dismiss to you the king of 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 All they cried again, and said [saying], Not this, but Barabbas. And Barabbas was a thief. 40 They shouted back, "No, not him! Give us Barabbas!" Now Barabbas had taken part in a rebellion.
