NIV 40 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. "Could you men not keep watch with me for one hour?" he asked Peter. CEB 41 Stay alert and pray so that you won't give in to temptation. The spirit is eager, but the flesh is weak." NIV 41 "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak."

CEB 53 Or do you think that I'm not able to ask my Father and he will send to me more than twelve battle groups of angels right away? NIV 53 Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels? CEB 54 But if I did that, how would the scriptures be fulfilled that say this must happen?" NIV 54 But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?" CEB 55 Then Jesus said to the crowds, "Have you come with swords and clubs to arrest me, like a thief? Day after day, I sat in the temple teaching, but you didn't arrest me. NIV 55 At that time Jesus said to the crowd, "Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come out with swords and clubs to capture me? Every day I sat in the temple courts teaching, and you did not arrest me. CEB 56 But all this has happened so that what the prophets said in the scriptures might be fulfilled." Then all the disciples left Jesus and ran away. NIV 56 But this has all taken place that the writings of the prophets might be fulfilled." Then all the disciples deserted him and fled. CEB 57 Those who arrested Jesus led him to Caiaphas the high priest. The legal experts and the elders had gathered there.

" CEB 62 Then the high priest stood and said to Jesus, "Aren't you going to respond to the testimony these people have brought against you?" NIV 62 Then the high priest stood up and said to Jesus, "Are you not going to answer? What is this testimony that these men are bringing against you?" CEB 63 But Jesus was silent. The high priest said, "By the living God, I demand that you tell us whether you are the Christ, God's Son." NIV 63 But Jesus remained silent. The high priest said to him, "I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God." CEB 64 "You said it," Jesus replied. "But I say to you that from now on you'll see the Human One sitting on the right side of the Almighty and coming on the heavenly clouds." NIV 64 "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied. "But I say to all of you: In the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven."

NIV 69 Now Peter was sitting out in the courtyard, and a servant girl came to him. "You also were with Jesus of Galilee," she said. CEB 70 But he denied it in front of all of them, saying, "I don't know what you are talking about." NIV 70 But he denied it before them all. "I don't know what you're talking about," he said. CEB 71 When he went over to the gate, another woman saw him and said to those who were there, "This man was with Jesus, the man from Nazareth." NIV 71 Then he went out to the gateway, where another girl saw him and said to the people there, "This fellow was with Jesus of Nazareth." CEB 72 With a solemn pledge, he denied it again, saying, "I don't know the man." NIV 72 He denied it again, with an oath: "I don't know the man!"

NIV 73 After a little while, those standing there went up to Peter and said, "Surely you are one of them, for your accent gives you away." CEB 74 Then he cursed and swore, "I don't know the man!" At that very moment the rooster crowed. NIV 74 Then he began to call down curses on himself and he swore to them, "I don't know the man!" Immediately a rooster crowed. CEB 75 Peter remembered Jesus' words, "Before the rooster crows you will deny me three times." And Peter went out and cried uncontrollably. NIV 75 Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken: "Before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times." And he went outside and wept bitterly.
