New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
54 So they arrested him and led him to the high priest's residence, and Peter was following far 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 The guards lit a fire in the courtyard and sat around it, and Peter joined them there. 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 A servant girl noticed him in the firelight and began staring at him. Finally she said, "This man was one of Jesus' followers!" 56 A servant girl saw him seated there in the firelight. She looked closely at him and said, "This man was with him."
57 Peter denied it. "Woman," he said, "I don't even know the man!" 57 But he denied it. "Woman, I don't know him," he said.
58 After a while someone else looked at him and said, "You must be one of them!" "No, man, I'm not!" Peter replied. 58 A little later someone else saw him and said, "You also are one of them." "Man, I am not!" Peter replied.
59 About an hour later someone else insisted, "This must be one of Jesus' disciples because he is a Galilean, too." 59 About an hour later another asserted, "Certainly this fellow was with him, for he is a Galilean."
60 But Peter said, "Man, I don't know what you are talking about." And as soon as he said these words, the rooster crowed. 60 Peter replied, "Man, I don't know what you're talking about!" Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed.
61 At that moment the Lord turned and looked at Peter. Then Peter remembered that the Lord had said, "Before the rooster crows tomorrow morning, you will deny 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 Peter left the courtyard, crying bitterly. 62 And he went outside and wept bitterly.
