Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Meanwhile the Festival of the Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching, 1 Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching,
2 and the High Priests and the Scribes were contriving how to destroy Him. But they feared 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 Satan, however, entered into Judas (the man called Iscariot) who was one of the Twelve. 3 Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve.
4 He went and conferred with the High Priests and Commanders as to how he should deliver 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 This gave them great pleasure, and they agreed to pay him. 5 They were delighted and agreed to give him money.
6 He accepted their offer, and then looked out for an opportunity to betray Him when the people were not there. 6 He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present.
7 When the day of the Unleavened Bread came--the day for the Passover lamb to be sacrificed-- 7 Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed.
8 Jesus sent Peter and John with instructions. "Go," He said, "and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat it." 8 Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover."
9 "Where shall we prepare it?" they asked. 9 "Where do you want us to prepare for it?" they asked.
10 "You will no sooner have entered the city," He replied, "than you will meet a man carrying a pitcher of water. Follow him into the house to 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 Rabbi asks you, Where is the room where I can eat 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 show you a large furnished room upstairs. There make your preparations." 12 He will show you a large upper room, all furnished. Make preparations there."
13 So they went and found all as He had told them; and they got the Passover ready. 13 They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.
14 When the time was come, and He had taken His place at table, and the Apostles with Him, 14 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table.
15 He said to them, "Earnestly have I longed to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; 15 And he said to them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.
16 for I tell you that I certainly shall not eat one again till its full meaning has been brought out 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 Then, having received the cup and given thanks, He said, "Take this and share it among yourselves; 17 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, "Take this and divide it among you.
18 for I tell you that from this time I will never drink the produce 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 Then, taking a Passover biscuit, He gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body which is being given on your behalf: this do in remembrance 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 He gave them the cup in like manner, when the meal was over. "This cup," He said, "is the new Covenant ratified by my blood which is to be poured out on your behalf. 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 Yet the hand of him who is betraying me is at the table with me. 21 But the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table.
22 For indeed the Son of Man goes on His way--His pre-destined way; yet alas for that man who is betraying Him!" 22 The Son of Man will go as it has been decreed, but woe to that man who betrays him."
23 Thereupon they began to discuss with one another which of them it could possibly be who was about to do this. 23 They began to question among themselves which of them it might be who would do this.
24 There arose also a dispute among them which of them should be regarded as greatest. 24 Also a dispute arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest.
25 But He said to them, "The kings of the Gentiles are their masters, and those who exercise authority over them are called Benefactors. 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 With you it is not so; but let the greatest among you be as the younger, and the leader be like him who serves. 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 the greater--he who sits at table, or he who waits on him? Is it not he who sits at table? But my position among you is that of one who waits on others. 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 You however have remained with me amid my trials; 28 You are those who have stood by me in my trials.
29 and I covenant to give you, as my Father has covenanted to give me, a Kingdom-- 29 And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me,
30 so that you shall eat and drink at my table in my Kingdom, and sit on thrones as judges over 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, I tell you that Satan has obtained permission to have all of you to sift as wheat is sifted. 31 "Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat.
32 But *I* have prayed for *you* that your faith may not fail, and you, when at last you have come back to your true self, must strengthen your brethren." 32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers."
33 "Master," replied Peter, "with you I am ready to go both to prison and to death." 33 But he replied, "Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death."
34 "I tell you, Peter," said Jesus, "that the cock will not crow to-day till you have three times denied that you know me." 34 Jesus answered, "I tell you, Peter, before the rooster crows today, you will deny three times that you know me."
35 Then He asked them, "When I sent you out without purse or bag or shoes, was there anything you needed?" "No, nothing," they replied. 35 Then Jesus asked them, "When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?" "Nothing," they answered.
36 "But now," said He, "let the one who has a purse take it, and he who has a bag must do the same. And let him who has no sword sell his outer garment and buy one. 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 tell you that those words of Scripture must yet find their fulfilment in me: `And He was reckoned among the lawless'; for indeed that saying about me has its accomplishment." 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 "Master, here are two swords," they exclaimed. "That is enough," He replied. 38 The disciples said, "See, Lord, here are two swords." "That is enough," he replied.
39 On going out, He proceeded as usual to the Mount of Olives, and His disciples followed Him. 39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him.
40 But when He arrived at the place, He said to them, "Pray that you may not come into temptation." 40 On reaching the place, he said to them, "Pray that you will not fall into temptation."
41 But He Himself withdrew from them about a stone's throw, and knelt down and prayed repeatedly, saying, 41 He withdrew about a stone's throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed,
42 "Father, if it be Thy will, take this cup away from me; yet not my will but Thine be done!" 42 "Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done."
43 And there appeared to Him an angel from Heaven, strengthening Him; 43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him.
44 while He--an agony of distress having come upon Him--prayed all the more with intense earnestness, and His sweat became like clots of blood dropping on the ground. 44 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.
45 When He rose from his prayer and came to His disciples, He found them sleeping for sorrow. 45 When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow.
46 "Why are you sleeping?" He said; "stand up; and pray that you may not come into temptation." 46 "Why are you sleeping?" he asked them. "Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation."
47 While He was still speaking there came a crowd with Judas, already mentioned as one of the Twelve, at their head. He went up to Jesus to kiss Him. 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 "Judas," said Jesus, "are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?" 48 but Jesus asked him, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?"
49 Those who were about Him, seeing what was likely to happen, asked Him, "Master, shall we strike with the sword?" 49 When Jesus' followers saw what was going to happen, they said, "Lord, should we strike with our swords?"
50 And one of them struck a blow at the High Priest's servant and cut off his right ear. 50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.
51 "Permit me thus far," said Jesus. And He touched the ear and healed it. 51 But Jesus answered, "No more of this!" And he touched the man's ear and healed him.
52 Then Jesus said to the High Priests and Commanders of the Temple and Elders, who had come to arrest Him, "Have you come out as if to fight with a robber, with swords and cudgels? 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 While day after day I was with you in the Temple, you did not lay hands upon me; but to you belongs this hour--and the power of darkness." 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 arrested Him and led Him away, and brought Him to the High Priest's house, while Peter followed a good way behind. 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 when they had lighted a fire in the middle of the court and had seated themselves in a group round it, Peter was sitting 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 when a maidservant saw him sitting by the fire, and, looking fixedly at him, she said, "This man also 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 denied it, and declared, "Woman, I do not know him." 57 But he denied it. "Woman, I don't know him," he said.
58 Shortly afterwards a man saw him and said, "You, too, are one of them." "No, man, I am not," said Peter. 58 A little later someone else saw him and said, "You also are one of them." "Man, I am not!" Peter replied.
59 After an interval of about an hour some one else stoutly maintained: "Certainly this fellow also was with him, for in fact he is a Galilaean." 59 About an hour later another asserted, "Certainly this fellow was with him, for he is a Galilean."
60 "Man, I don't know what you mean," replied Peter. No sooner had he spoken than a cock crowed. 60 Peter replied, "Man, I don't know what you're talking about!" Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed.
61 The Master turned and looked on Peter; and Peter recollected the Master's words, how He had said to him, "This very day, before the cock crows, you will disown 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 and wept aloud bitterly. 62 And he went outside and wept bitterly.
63 Meanwhile the men who held Jesus in custody repeatedly beat Him in cruel sport, 63 The men who were guarding Jesus began mocking and beating him.
64 or blindfolded Him, and then challenged Him. "Prove to us," they said, "that you are a prophet, by telling us who it was that struck you." 64 They blindfolded him and demanded, "Prophesy! Who hit you?"
65 And they said many other insulting things to Him. 65 And they said many other insulting things to him.
66 As soon as it was day, the whole body of the Elders, both High Priests and Scribes, assembled. Then He was brought into their Sanhedrin, and they asked Him, 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 "Are you the Christ? Tell us." "If I tell you," He replied, "you will certainly not believe; 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 ask you questions, you will certainly not answer. 68 and if I asked you, you would not answer.
69 But from this time forward the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of God's omnipotence." 69 But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God."
70 Thereupon they cried out with one voice, "You, then, are the Son of God?" "It is as you say," He answered; "I am He." 70 They all asked, "Are you then the Son of God?" He replied, "You are right in saying I am."
71 "What need have we of further evidence?" they said; "for we ourselves have heard it from his own lips." 71 Then they said, "Why do we need any more testimony? We have heard it from his own lips."
