Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now the feast of unleavened bread was near, which is called the Passover. 1 Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching,
2 And the chief priests and the scribes were looking for a chance to put him to death, but they went in fear of the people. 2 and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some way to get rid of Jesus, for they were afraid of the people.
3 And Satan came into Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve. 3 Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve.
4 And he went away and had a discussion with the chief priests and the rulers, about how he might give him up to them. 4 And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus.
5 And they were glad, and undertook to give him money. 5 They were delighted and agreed to give him money.
6 And he made an agreement with them to give him up to them, if he got a chance, when the people were not present. 6 He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present.
7 And the day of unleavened bread came, when the Passover lamb is put to death. 7 Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed.
8 And Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, Go and make the Passover ready for us, so that we may take it. 8 Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover."
9 And they said to him, Where are we to get it ready? 9 "Where do you want us to prepare for it?" they asked.
10 And he said to them, When you go into the town you will see a man coming to you with a vessel of water; go after him into the house into which he goes. 10 He replied, "As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters,
11 And say to the master of the house, The Master says, Where is the guest-room, where I may take the Passover with my disciples? 11 and say to the owner of the house, 'The Teacher asks: Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?'
12 And he will take you up to a great room with a table and seats: there make ready. 12 He will show you a large upper room, all furnished. Make preparations there."
13 And they went, and it was as he had said: and they made the Passover ready. 13 They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.
14 And when the time had come, he took his seat, and the Apostles with him. 14 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table.
15 And he said, I have had a great desire to keep this Passover with you before I come to my death; 15 And he said to them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.
16 For I say to you, I will not take it till it is made complete in the kingdom of God. 16 For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God."
17 And he took a cup and, having given praise, he said, Make division of this among yourselves; 17 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, "Take this and divide it among you.
18 For I say to you, I will not take of the fruit of the vine till the kingdom of God has come. 18 For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes."
19 And he took bread and, having given praise, he gave it to them when it had been broken, saying, This is my body, which is given for you: do this in memory of me. 19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me."
20 And in the same way, after the meal, he took the cup, saying, This cup is the new testament, made with my blood which is given for you. 20 In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.
21 But the hand of him who is false to me is with me at the table. 21 But the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table.
22 For it will be done to the Son of man after the purpose of God, but unhappy is that man by whom he is given up. 22 The Son of Man will go as it has been decreed, but woe to that man who betrays him."
23 And they were wondering among themselves which of them it was who would do this thing. 23 They began to question among themselves which of them it might be who would do this.
24 And there was an argument among them about which of them was the greatest. 24 Also a dispute arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest.
25 And he said, The kings of the Gentiles are lords over them, and those who have authority are given names of honour. 25 Jesus said to them, "The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors.
26 But let it not be so with you; but he who is greater, let him become like the younger; and he who is chief, like a servant. 26 But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves.
27 For which is greater, the guest who is seated at a meal or the servant who is waiting on him? is it not the guest? but I am among you as a servant. 27 For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.
28 But you are those who have kept with me through my troubles; 28 You are those who have stood by me in my trials.
29 And I will give you a kingdom as my Father has given one to me, 29 And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me,
30 So that you may take food and drink at my table in my kingdom, and be seated like kings, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 30 so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
31 Simon, Simon, Satan has made a request to have you, so that he may put you to the test as grain is tested: 31 "Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat.
32 But I have made prayer for you, that your faith may not go from you: and when you are turned again, make your brothers strong. 32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers."
33 And he said to him, Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death. 33 But he replied, "Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death."
34 And he said, I say to you, Peter, before the cock's second cry today, you will say three times that you have no knowledge of me. 34 Jesus answered, "I tell you, Peter, before the rooster crows today, you will deny three times that you know me."
35 And he said to them, When I sent you out without money or bag or shoes, were you in need of anything? And they said, Nothing. 35 Then Jesus asked them, "When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?" "Nothing," they answered.
36 And he said to them, But now, he who has a money-bag, or a bag for food, let him take it: and he who has not, let him give his coat for money and get a sword. 36 He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
37 For I say to you that these words will be put into effect in me, And he was numbered among the evil-doers: for what has been said in the Writings about me has an end. 37 It is written: 'And he was numbered with the transgressors'; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me. Yes, what is written about me is reaching its fulfillment."
38 And they said, Lord, here are two swords. And he said, It is enough. 38 The disciples said, "See, Lord, here are two swords." "That is enough," he replied.
39 And he came out, and went, as his way was, to the Mountain of Olives, and the disciples went with him. 39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him.
40 And when he came to the place, he said to them, Make a prayer that you may not be put to the test. 40 On reaching the place, he said to them, "Pray that you will not fall into temptation."
41 And he went a little distance away from them and, falling on his knees in prayer, he said, 41 He withdrew about a stone's throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed,
42 Father, if it is your pleasure, take this cup from me: but still, let your pleasure, not mine, be done. 42 "Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done."
43 And an angel from heaven came to him, to give him strength. 43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him.
44 And being in great trouble of soul, the force of his prayer became stronger, and great drops, like blood, came from him, falling to the earth. 44 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.
45 And, getting up from prayer, he came to the disciples, and saw that they were sleeping for sorrow. 45 When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow.
46 And he said, Why are you sleeping? Get up, and give yourselves to prayer, so that you may not be put to the test. 46 "Why are you sleeping?" he asked them. "Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation."
47 And while he was saying these words, there came a band of people, and Judas, one of the twelve, was in front of them, and he came near to Jesus to give him a kiss. 47 While he was still speaking a crowd came up, and the man who was called Judas, one of the Twelve, was leading them. He approached Jesus to kiss him,
48 But Jesus said to him, Judas, will you be false to the Son of man with a kiss? 48 but Jesus asked him, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?"
49 And when those who were with him saw what was coming, they said, Lord, may we not make use of our swords? 49 When Jesus' followers saw what was going to happen, they said, "Lord, should we strike with our swords?"
50 And one of them gave a blow to the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear. 50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.
51 But Jesus, answering, said, Put up with this, at least. And touching his ear, he made it well. 51 But Jesus answered, "No more of this!" And he touched the man's ear and healed him.
52 And Jesus said to the chief priests and the captains of the Temple and the rulers, who had come against him, Have you come out as against a thief, with swords and sticks? 52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests, the officers of the temple guard, and the elders, who had come for him, "Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come with swords and clubs?
53 When I was in the Temple with you every day, your hands were not stretched out against me: but this is your hour, and the authority of the dark power. 53 Every day I was with you in the temple courts, and you did not lay a hand on me. But this is your hour--when darkness reigns."
54 And they made him a prisoner and took him away to the house of the high priest. But Peter went after them at a distance. 54 Then seizing him, they led him away and took him into the house of the high priest. Peter followed at a distance.
55 And a fire was lighted in the middle of the open square, and they were seated together, and Peter was among them. 55 But when they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter sat down with them.
56 And a certain woman-servant, seeing him in the light of the fire, and looking at him with attention, said, This man was with him. 56 A servant girl saw him seated there in the firelight. She looked closely at him and said, "This man was with him."
57 But he said, Woman, it is not true; I have no knowledge of him. 57 But he denied it. "Woman, I don't know him," he said.
58 And after a little time, another saw him and said, You are one of them; and he said, Man, I am not. 58 A little later someone else saw him and said, "You also are one of them." "Man, I am not!" Peter replied.
59 And after about an hour, another man said, with decision, Certainly this man was with him, for he is a Galilaean. 59 About an hour later another asserted, "Certainly this fellow was with him, for he is a Galilean."
60 And Peter said, Man, I have no knowledge of these things of which you are talking. And straight away, while he was saying these words, there came the cry of a cock. 60 Peter replied, "Man, I don't know what you're talking about!" Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed.
61 And the Lord, turning, gave Peter a look. And the words of the Lord came to Peter's mind, how he had said, This night, before the hour of the cock's cry, you will be false to me three times. 61 The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him: "Before the rooster crows today, you will disown me three times."
62 And he went out, weeping bitterly. 62 And he went outside and wept bitterly.
63 And the men in whose hands Jesus was, made sport of him and gave him blows. 63 The men who were guarding Jesus began mocking and beating him.
64 And, covering his eyes, they said to him, Are you prophet enough to say who gave you that blow? 64 They blindfolded him and demanded, "Prophesy! Who hit you?"
65 And they said a number of other evil things against him. 65 And they said many other insulting things to him.
66 And when it was day, the rulers of the people came together, with the chief priests and the scribes, and they took him before their Sanhedrin, saying, 66 At daybreak the council of the elders of the people, both the chief priests and teachers of the law, met together, and Jesus was led before them.
67 If you are the Christ, say so. But he said, If I say so you will not have belief; 67 "If you are the Christ, " they said, "tell us." Jesus answered, "If I tell you, you will not believe me,
68 And if I put a question to you, you will not give an answer. 68 and if I asked you, you would not answer.
69 But in the future the Son of man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God. 69 But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God."
70 And they all said, Are you then the Son of God? and he said, You say that I am. 70 They all asked, "Are you then the Son of God?" He replied, "You are right in saying I am."
71 And they said, What more need have we of witness? we have the very words of his mouth. 71 Then they said, "Why do we need any more testimony? We have heard it from his own lips."
