LEB 1 And it happened that when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said to his disciples, NIV 1 When Jesus had finished saying all these things, he said to his disciples, LEB 2 "You know that after two days the Passover takes place, and the Son of Man will be handed over in order to be crucified." NIV 2 "As you know, the Passover is two days away--and the Son of Man will be handed over to be crucified." LEB 3 Then the chief priests and the elders of the people assembled in the palace of the high priest, who was named Caiaphas, NIV 3 Then the chief priests and the elders of the people assembled in the palace of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas, LEB 4 and plotted in order that they could arrest Jesus by stealth and kill [him]. NIV 4 and they plotted to arrest Jesus in some sly way and kill him. LEB 5 But they were saying, "Not during the feast, so that there will not be an uproar among the people." NIV 5 "But not during the Feast," they said, "or there may be a riot among the people." LEB 6 Now [while] Jesus was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, NIV 6 While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of a man known as Simon the Leper, LEB 7 a woman came up to him holding an alabaster flask of very expensive perfumed oil, and poured [it] out on his head [while he] was reclining at table. NIV 7 a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table. LEB 8 And [when] the disciples saw [it] they were indignant, saying, "{Why} this waste? NIV 8 When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. "Why this waste?" they asked. LEB 9 For this could have been sold for a large sum and given to the poor!" NIV 9 "This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor." LEB 10 But Jesus, knowing [this], said to them, "Why do you cause trouble for the woman? For she has done a good deed for me. NIV 10 Aware of this, Jesus said to them, "Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. LEB 11 For the poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me. NIV 11 The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me. LEB 12 For [when] this woman poured this ointment on my body, she did [it] in order to prepare me for burial. NIV 12 When she poured this perfume on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial. LEB 13 Truly I say to you, wherever this gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told in memory of her." NIV 13 I tell you the truth, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her." LEB 14 Then one of the twelve, the one named Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests NIV 14 Then one of the Twelve--the one called Judas Iscariot--went to the chief priests LEB 15 [and] said, "What are you willing to give me if I in turn deliver him to you?"

LEB 16 And from that time on, he began seeking a favorable opportunity in order that he could betray him. NIV 16 From then on Judas watched for an opportunity to hand him over. LEB 17 Now on the first [day] of the feast of Unleavened Bread the disciples came up to Jesus, saying, "Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the Passover?" NIV 17 On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?"

' NIV 18 He replied, "Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, 'The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.' " LEB 19 And the disciples did as Jesus directed them, and they prepared the Passover. NIV 19 So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover. LEB 20 And [when it] was evening, he was reclining at table with the twelve disciples. NIV 20 When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve. LEB 21 And [while] they were eating he said, "Truly I say to you, that one of you will betray me." NIV 21 And while they were eating, he said, "I tell you the truth, one of you will betray me." LEB 22 And greatly distressed, each one began to say to him, "{Surely I am not he, am I}, Lord?" NIV 22 They were very sad and began to say to him one after the other, "Surely not I, Lord?" LEB 23 And he answered [and] said, "The one who dips his hand in the bowl with me--this one will betray me. NIV 23 Jesus replied, "The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me. LEB 24 The Son of Man is going just as it is written about him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would be better for him if that man had not been born." NIV 24 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." LEB 25 And Judas, the one who was betraying him, answered [and] said, "{Surely I am not he, am I}, Rabbi?" He said to him, "You have said [it]." NIV 25 Then Judas, the one who would betray him, said, "Surely not I, Rabbi?" Jesus answered, "Yes, it is you." LEB 26 Now [while] they were eating Jesus took bread and, [after] giving thanks, he broke [it], and giving [it] to the disciples, he said, "Take, eat, this is my body." NIV 26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take and eat; this is my body." LEB 27 And [after] taking the cup and giving thanks he gave [it] to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you, NIV 27 Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. LEB 28 for this is my blood of the covenant which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

LEB 29 But I tell you, from now [on] I will never drink of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in the kingdom of my Father." NIV 29 I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you in my Father's kingdom." LEB 30 And [after they] had sung the hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. NIV 30 When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. LEB 31 Then Jesus said to them, "You will all fall away because of me during this night, for it is written, 'I will strike the shepherd and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.'<note: A quotation from Zech 13:7> NIV 31 Then Jesus told them, "This very night you will all fall away on account of me, for it is written: " 'I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.' LEB 32 But after I am raised, I will go ahead of you into Galilee." NIV 32 But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee." LEB 33 But Peter answered [and] said to him, "If they all fall away because of you, I will never fall away!" NIV 33 Peter replied, "Even if all fall away on account of you, I never will." LEB 34 Jesus said to him, "Truly I say to you that during this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times!" NIV 34 "I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times." LEB 35 Peter said to him, "Even if it is necessary for me to die with you, I will never deny you!" And all the disciples said the same [thing]. NIV 35 But Peter declared, "Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you." And all the other disciples said the same. LEB 36 Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to the disciples, "Sit here while I go over there [and] pray." NIV 36 Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, "Sit here while I go over there and pray." LEB 37 And taking along Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be distressed and troubled. NIV 37 He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. LEB 38 Then he said to them, "My soul is deeply grieved, to the point of death. Remain here and stay awake with me." NIV 38 Then he said to them, "My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me." LEB 39 And going forward a little he fell down on his face, praying and saying, "My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me. Nevertheless, not as I will, but as you [will]." NIV 39 Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, "My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will." LEB 40 And he came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, "So, were you not able to stay awake with me one hour? 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. LEB 41 Stay awake and pray that you will not enter into temptation. The spirit [is] willing, 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." LEB 42 Again for the second time he went away [and] prayed, saying, "My Father, if this cannot pass unless I drink it, your will must be done." NIV 42 He went away a second time and prayed, "My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done." LEB 43 And he came again [and] found them sleeping, {for they could not keep their eyes open}. NIV 43 When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. LEB 44 And leaving them again, he went away [and] prayed for the third [time], saying the same thing again. NIV 44 So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing. LEB 45 Then he came to the disciples and said to them, "Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour is near, and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners. NIV 45 Then he returned to the disciples and said to them, "Are you still sleeping and resting? Look, the hour is near, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. LEB 46 Get up, let us go! Behold, the one who is betraying me is approaching!" NIV 46 Rise, let us go! Here comes my betrayer!" LEB 47 And [while] he was still speaking, behold, Judas--one of the twelve--arrived, and with him a large crowd with swords and clubs, from the chief priests and elders of the people. NIV 47 While he was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, arrived. With him was a large crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests and the elders of the people. LEB 48 Now the one who was betraying him had given them a sign, saying, "[The one] whom I kiss--he is [the one]. Arrest him!" NIV 48 Now the betrayer had arranged a signal with them: "The one I kiss is the man; arrest him." LEB 49 And he came up to Jesus immediately [and] said, "Greetings, Rabbi," and kissed him. NIV 49 Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, "Greetings, Rabbi!" and kissed him. LEB 50 And Jesus said to him, "Friend, [do that] for which you have come." Then they came up [and] laid hands on Jesus and arrested him. NIV 50 Jesus replied, "Friend, do what you came for." Then the men stepped forward, seized Jesus and arrested him. LEB 51 And behold, one of those with Jesus extended his hand [and] drew his sword, and striking the slave of the high priest, cut off his ear. NIV 51 With that, one of Jesus' companions reached for his sword, drew it out and struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his ear. LEB 52 Then Jesus said to him, "Put your sword back into its place! For all who take up the sword will die by the sword. NIV 52 "Put your sword back in its place," Jesus said to him, "for all who draw the sword will die by the sword. LEB 53 Or do you think that I cannot call upon my Father, and he would put at my disposal at once more than twelve legions of angels? 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? LEB 54 How then would the scriptures be fulfilled that it must happen in this way?" NIV 54 But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?" LEB 55 At that time Jesus said to the crowds, "Have you come out with swords and clubs, as against a robber, to arrest me? Every day in the temple [courts] I sat teaching, and you did not 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. LEB 56 But all this has happened in order that the scriptures of the prophets would be fulfilled." Then the disciples all abandoned him [and] fled. 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. LEB 57 Now those who had arrested Jesus led [him] away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders had gathered. NIV 57 Those who had arrested Jesus took him to Caiaphas, the high priest, where the teachers of the law and the elders had assembled. LEB 58 But Peter was following him from a distance, as far as the courtyard of the high priest. And he went inside [and] was sitting with the officers to see the outcome. NIV 58 But Peter followed him at a distance, right up to the courtyard of the high priest. He entered and sat down with the guards to see the outcome.

NIV 59 The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for false evidence against Jesus so that they could put him to death. LEB 60 And they did not find [it], [although] many false witnesses came forward. And finally two came forward NIV 60 But they did not find any, though many false witnesses came forward. Finally two came forward LEB 61 [and] said, "This man said, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God and rebuild [it] within three days.'" NIV 61 and declared, "This fellow said, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God and rebuild it in three days.' " LEB 62 And the high priest stood up [and] said to him, "Do you reply nothing? What are these [people] testifying 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?" LEB 63 But Jesus was silent. And the high priest said to him, "I put you under oath by the living God, that you tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God!" 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." LEB 64 Jesus said to him, "You have said [it]. But I tell you, from now [on] you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power and coming on the clouds of heaven." 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." LEB 65 Then the high priest tore his robes, saying, "He has blasphemed! What further need do we have of witnesses? Behold, you have just now heard the blasphemy! NIV 65 Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, "He has spoken blasphemy! Why do we need any more witnesses? Look, now you have heard the blasphemy. LEB 66 What do you think?"

Others slapped him LEB 68 saying, "Prophesy for us, [you] Christ! Who is it who hit you?" NIV 68 and said, "Prophesy to us, Christ. Who hit you?" LEB 69 Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard, and a female slave came up to him [and] said, "You also were with Jesus the Galilean." 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. LEB 70 But he denied [it] in the presence of [them] all, saying, "I do not know what you mean!" NIV 70 But he denied it before them all. "I don't know what you're talking about," he said. LEB 71 And [when he] went out to the gateway, another [female slave] saw him and said to those [who were] there, "This man was with Jesus the Nazarene." 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." LEB 72 And again he denied [it] with an oath, "I do not know the man!" NIV 72 He denied it again, with an oath: "I don't know the man!" LEB 73 And after a little [while] those who were standing there came up [and] said to Peter, "You really are [one] of them also, because even your accent {reveals who you are}." 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." LEB 74 Then he began to curse and to swear with an oath, "I do not know the man!" And immediately a 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. LEB 75 And Peter remembered the statement Jesus had said, "Before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times," and he went outside [and] wept bitterly. 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.
