New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
12 On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread (the day the Passover lambs were sacrificed), Jesus' disciples asked him, "Where do you want us to go to prepare the Passover supper?" 12 On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, when it was customary to sacrifice the Passover lamb, Jesus' disciples asked him, "Where do you want us to go and make preparations for you to eat the Passover?"
13 So Jesus sent two of them into Jerusalem to make the arrangements. "As you go into the city," he told them, "a man carrying a pitcher of water will meet you. Follow him. 13 So he sent two of his disciples, telling them, "Go into the city, and a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him.
14 At the house he enters, say to the owner, 'The Teacher asks, Where is the guest room where I can eat the Passover meal with my disciples?' 14 Say to the owner of the house he enters, 'The Teacher asks: Where is my guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?'
15 He will take you upstairs to a large room that is already set up. That is the place; go ahead and prepare our supper there." 15 He will show you a large upper room, furnished and ready. Make preparations for us there."
16 So the two disciples went on ahead into the city and found everything just as Jesus had said, and they prepared the Passover supper there. 16 The disciples left, went into the city and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.
17 In the evening Jesus arrived with the twelve disciples. 17 When evening came, Jesus arrived with the Twelve.
18 As they were sitting around the table eating, Jesus said, "The truth is, one of you will betray me, one of you who is here eating with me." 18 While they were reclining at the table eating, he said, "I tell you the truth, one of you will betray me--one who is eating with me."
19 Greatly distressed, one by one they began to ask him, "I'm not the one, am I?" 19 They were saddened, and one by one they said to him, "Surely not I?"
20 He replied, "It is one of you twelve, one who is eating with me now. 20 "It is one of the Twelve," he replied, "one who dips bread into the bowl with me.
21 For I, the Son of Man, must die, as the Scriptures declared long ago. But how terrible it will be for my betrayer. Far better for him if he had never been born!" 21 The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born."
22 As they were eating, Jesus took a loaf of bread and asked God's blessing on it. Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, "Take it, for this is my body." 22 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take it; this is my body."
23 And he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it. He gave it to them, and they all drank from it. 23 Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, and they all drank from it.
24 And he said to them, "This is my blood, poured out for many, sealing the covenant between God and his people. 24 "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many," he said to them.
25 I solemnly declare that I will not drink wine again until that day when I drink it new in the Kingdom of God." 25 "I tell you the truth, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it anew in the kingdom of God."
26 Then they sang a hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives. 26 When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
