GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 The Festival of Unleavened Bread, called Passover, was near. 1 Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching,
2 The chief priests and the scribes were looking for some way to kill Jesus. However, they were afraid 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 Then Satan entered Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve apostles. 3 Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve.
4 Judas went to the chief priests and the temple guards and discussed with them how he could betray Jesus. 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 They were pleased and agreed to give him some money. 5 They were delighted and agreed to give him money.
6 So Judas promised to do it. He kept looking for an opportunity to betray Jesus to them when there was no crowd. 6 He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present.
7 The day came during the Festival of Unleavened Bread when the Passover lamb had to be killed. 7 Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed.
8 Jesus sent Peter and John and told them, "Go, prepare the Passover lamb for us to eat." 8 Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, "Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover."
9 They asked him, "Where do you want us to prepare it?" 9 "Where do you want us to prepare for it?" they asked.
10 He told them, "Go into the city, and you will meet a man carrying a jug of water. Follow him into the house he enters. 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 Tell the owner of the house that the teacher asks, 'Where is the room where I can eat the Passover meal 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 He will take you upstairs and show you a large furnished room. Get things ready there." 12 He will show you a large upper room, all furnished. Make preparations there."
13 The disciples left. They found everything as Jesus had told them and prepared the Passover. 13 They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.
14 When it was time to eat the Passover meal, Jesus and the apostles were at the table. 14 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table.
15 Jesus said to them, "I've had a deep desire 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 I can guarantee that I won't eat it again until it finds its fulfillment 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 he took a cup and spoke a prayer of thanksgiving. He said, "Take this, and share it. 17 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, "Take this and divide it among you.
18 I can guarantee that from now on I won't drink this wine until the kingdom of God comes." 18 For I tell you I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes."
19 Then Jesus took bread and spoke a prayer of thanksgiving. He broke the bread, gave it to them, and said, "This is my body, which is given up for you. Do this to remember 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 When supper was over, he did the same with the cup. He said, "This cup that is poured out for you is the new promise made with my blood." 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 "The hand of the one who will betray me is with me on the table. 21 But the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table.
22 The Son of Man is going to die the way it has been planned for him. But how horrible it will be for that person who betrays him." 22 The Son of Man will go as it has been decreed, but woe to that man who betrays him."
23 So they began to discuss with each other who could do such a thing. 23 They began to question among themselves which of them it might be who would do this.
24 Then a quarrel broke out among the disciples. They argued about who should be considered the greatest. 24 Also a dispute arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest.
25 Jesus said to them, "The kings of nations have power over their people, and those in authority call themselves friends of the people. 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 you're not going to be that way! Rather, the greatest among you must be like the youngest, and your leader must be 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 Who's the greatest, the person who sits at the table or the servant? Isn't it really the person who sits at the table? But I'm 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 "You have stood by me in the troubles that have tested me. 28 You are those who have stood by me in my trials.
29 So as my Father has given me a kingdom, I'm giving it to you. 29 And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me,
30 You will eat and drink at my table in my kingdom. You will also sit on thrones and judge 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 [Then the Lord said,] "Simon, Simon, listen! Satan has demanded to have you apostles for himself. He wants to separate you from me as a farmer separates wheat from husks. 31 "Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat.
32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith will not fail. So when you recover, strengthen the other disciples." 32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers."
33 But Peter said to him, "Lord, I'm ready to go to prison with you and to die with you." 33 But he replied, "Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death."
34 Jesus replied, "Peter, I can guarantee that the rooster won't crow tonight until you say three times that you don't 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 Jesus said to them, "When I sent you out without a wallet, traveling bag, or sandals, you didn't lack anything, did you?" "Not a thing!" they answered. 35 Then Jesus asked them, "When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?" "Nothing," they answered.
36 Then he said to them, "But now, the person who has a wallet and a traveling bag should take them along. The person who doesn't have a sword should sell his coat 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 I can guarantee that the Scripture passage which says, 'He was counted with criminals,' must find its fulfillment in me. Indeed, whatever is written about me will come true." 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 The disciples said, "Lord, look! Here are two swords!" Then Jesus said to them, "That's enough!" 38 The disciples said, "See, Lord, here are two swords." "That is enough," he replied.
