Matthew 26

WNT 1 When Jesus had ended all these discourses, He said to His disciples, NIV 1 When Jesus had finished saying all these things, he said to his disciples, WNT 2 "You know that in two days' time the Passover comes. And the Son of Man will be delivered up 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." WNT 3 Then the High Priests and Elders of the People assembled in the court of the palace of the High Priest 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, WNT 4 and consulted how to get Jesus into their power by stratagem and put Him to death. NIV 4 and they plotted to arrest Jesus in some sly way and kill him. WNT 5 But they said, "Not during the Festival, lest there be a riot among the people." NIV 5 "But not during the Feast," they said, "or there may be a riot among the people." WNT 6 Now when Jesus was come to Bethany and was at the house of Simon the Leper, NIV 6 While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of a man known as Simon the Leper, WNT 7 a woman came to Him with a jar of very costly, sweet-scented ointment, which she poured over His head as He reclined 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. WNT 8 "Why such waste?" indignantly exclaimed the disciples; NIV 8 When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. "Why this waste?" they asked. WNT 9 "for this might have been sold for a considerable sum, and the money given to the poor." NIV 9 "This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor." WNT 10 But Jesus heard it, and said to them, "Why are you vexing her? For she has done a most gracious act towards me. NIV 10 Aware of this, Jesus said to them, "Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. WNT 11 The poor you always have with you, but me you have not always. NIV 11 The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me. WNT 12 In pouring this ointment over me, her object was to prepare me for burial. NIV 12 When she poured this perfume on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial. WNT 13 In solemn truth I tell you that wherever in the whole world this Good News shall be proclaimed, this deed of hers shall be spoken of 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." WNT 14 At that time one of the Twelve, the one called Judas Iscariot, went to the High Priests NIV 14 Then one of the Twelve--the one called Judas Iscariot--went to the chief priests WNT 15 and said, "What are you willing to give me if I betray him to you?" So they weighed out to him thirty shekels, NIV 15 and asked, "What are you willing to give me if I hand him over to you?" So they counted out for him thirty silver coins. WNT 16 and from that moment he was on the look out for an opportunity to betray Him. NIV 16 From then on Judas watched for an opportunity to hand him over. WNT 17 On the first day of the Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus with the question, "Where shall we make preparations 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?" WNT 18 "Go into the city," He replied, "to a certain man, and tell him, `The Teacher says, My time is close at hand. It is at your house that I shall keep the Passover with my disciples.'" 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.' " WNT 19 The disciples did as Jesus directed them, and got the Passover ready. NIV 19 So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover. WNT 20 When evening came, He was at table with the twelve disciples, NIV 20 When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve. WNT 21 and the meal was proceeding, when Jesus said, "In solemn truth I tell 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." WNT 22 Intensely grieved they began one after another to ask Him, "Can it be I, Master?" NIV 22 They were very sad and began to say to him one after the other, "Surely not I, Lord?" WNT 23 "The one who has dipped his fingers in the bowl with me," He answered, "is the man who will betray me. NIV 23 Jesus replied, "The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me. WNT 24 The Son of Man is indeed going as is written concerning Him; but alas for that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It had been a happy thing for that man if he had never 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." WNT 25 Then Judas, the disciple who was betraying Him, asked, "Can it be I, Rabbi?" "It is you," He replied. NIV 25 Then Judas, the one who would betray him, said, "Surely not I, Rabbi?" Jesus answered, "Yes, it is you." WNT 26 During the meal Jesus took a Passover biscuit, blessed it and broke it. He then gave it to the disciples, saying, "Take this and eat it: it 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." WNT 27 And He took the cup and gave thanks, and 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. WNT 28 for this is my blood which is to be poured out for many for the remission of sins--the blood which ratifies the Covenant. NIV 28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. WNT 29 I tell you that I will never again take the produce of the vine till that day when I shall drink the new wine with you in my Father's Kingdom." 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." WNT 30 So they sang the hymn and went out to the Mount of Olives. NIV 30 When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. WNT 31 Then said Jesus, "This night all of you will stumble and fail in your fidelity to me; for it is written, `I will strike the Shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered in all directions.' 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.' WNT 32 But after I have risen to life again I will go before you into Galilee." NIV 32 But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee." WNT 33 "All may stumble and fail," said Peter, "but I never will." NIV 33 Peter replied, "Even if all fall away on account of you, I never will." WNT 34 "In solemn truth I tell you," replied Jesus, "that this very night, before the cock crows, you will three times disown me." NIV 34 "I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times." WNT 35 "Even if I must die with you," declared Peter, "I will never disown you." In like manner protested all the disciples. 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. WNT 36 Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane. And He said to the disciples, "Sit down here, whilst I go yonder and there 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." WNT 37 And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zabdi. Then He began to be full of anguish and distress, NIV 37 He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. WNT 38 and He said to them, "My soul is crushed with anguish to the very point of death; wait here, and keep 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." WNT 39 Going forward a short distance He fell on His face and prayed. "My Father," He said, "if it is possible, let this cup pass away from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as Thou willest." 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." WNT 40 Then He came to the disciples and found them asleep, and He said to Peter, "Alas, none of you could keep awake with me for even a single 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. WNT 41 Keep awake, and pray that you may not enter into temptation: the spirit is right willing, but the body is frail." NIV 41 "Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak." WNT 42 Again a second time He went away and prayed, saying, "My Father, if it is impossible for this cup to pass without my drinking it, Thy will 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." WNT 43 He came and again found them asleep, for they were very tired. NIV 43 When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. WNT 44 So He left them, and went away once more and prayed a third time, again using the same words. NIV 44 So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing. WNT 45 Then He came to the disciples and said, "Sleep on and rest. See, the moment is close at hand when the Son of Man is to be betrayed into the hands of sinful men. 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. WNT 46 Rouse yourselves. Let us be going. My betrayer is close at hand." NIV 46 Rise, let us go! Here comes my betrayer!" WNT 47 He had scarcely finished speaking when Judas came--one of the Twelve--accompanied by a great crowd of men armed with swords and bludgeons, sent by the High 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. WNT 48 Now the betrayer had agreed upon a sign with them, to direct them. He had said, "The one whom I kiss is the man: lay hold of him." NIV 48 Now the betrayer had arranged a signal with them: "The one I kiss is the man; arrest him." WNT 49 So he went straight to Jesus and said, "Peace to you, Rabbi!" And he kissed Him eagerly. NIV 49 Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, "Greetings, Rabbi!" and kissed him. WNT 50 "Friend," said Jesus, "carry out your intention." Then they came and laid their hands on Jesus and seized Him firmly. NIV 50 Jesus replied, "Friend, do what you came for." Then the men stepped forward, seized Jesus and arrested him. WNT 51 But one of those with Jesus drew his sword and struck the High Priest's servant, cutting 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. WNT 52 "Put back your sword again," said Jesus, "for all who draw the sword shall perish 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. WNT 53 Or do you suppose I cannot entreat my Father and He would instantly send to my help 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? WNT 54 In that case how are the Scriptures to be fulfilled which declare that thus it must be?" NIV 54 But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?" WNT 55 Then said Jesus to the crowds, "Have you come out as if to fight with a robber, with swords and bludgeons to apprehend me? Day after day I have been sitting teaching in the Temple, 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. WNT 56 But all this has taken place in order that the writings of the Prophets may be fulfilled." At this point the disciples all left 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. WNT 57 But the officers who had laid hold of Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas the High Priest, at whose house the Scribes and the Elders had assembled. 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. WNT 58 And Peter kept following Him at a distance, till he came even to the court of the High Priest's palace, where he entered and sat down among the officers to see the issue. 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. WNT 59 Meanwhile the High Priests and the whole Sanhedrin were seeking false testimony against Jesus in order to put Him to death; NIV 59 The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for false evidence against Jesus so that they could put him to death. WNT 60 but they could find none, although many false witnesses came forward. At length there came two NIV 60 But they did not find any, though many false witnesses came forward. Finally two came forward WNT 61 who testified, "This man said, `I am able to pull down the Sanctuary of God and three days afterwards to build a new one.'" NIV 61 and declared, "This fellow said, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God and rebuild it in three days.' " WNT 62 Then the High Priest stood up and asked Him, "Have you no answer to make? What is it these men are saying in evidence 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?" WNT 63 Jesus however remained silent. Again the High Priest addressed Him. "In the name of the ever-living God," he said, "I now put you on your oath. Tell us whether 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." WNT 64 "I am He," replied Jesus. "But I tell you that, later on, you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Omnipotence, and coming on the clouds of the sky." 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." WNT 65 Then the High Priest tore his robes and exclaimed, "Impious language! What further need have we of witnesses! See, you have now heard the impiety. 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. WNT 66 What is your verdict?" "He deserves to die," they replied. NIV 66 What do you think?" "He is worthy of death," they answered. WNT 67 Then they spat in His face, and struck Him--some with the fist, some with the open hand-- NIV 67 Then they spit in his face and struck him with their fists. Others slapped him WNT 68 while they taunted Him, saying, "Christ, prove yourself a Prophet by telling us who it was that struck you." NIV 68 and said, "Prophesy to us, Christ. Who hit you?" WNT 69 Peter meanwhile was sitting outside in the court of the palace, when one of the maidservants came over to him and said, "You too were with Jesus the Galilaean." 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. WNT 70 He denied it before 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. WNT 71 Soon afterwards he went out and stood in the gateway, when another girl saw him, and said, addressing the people 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." WNT 72 Again he denied it with an oath. "I do not know the man," he said. NIV 72 He denied it again, with an oath: "I don't know the man!" WNT 73 A short time afterwards the people standing there came and said to Peter, "Certainly you too are one of them, for your brogue shows it." 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." WNT 74 Then with curses and oaths he declared, "I do not know the man." Immediately a cock 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. WNT 75 and Peter recollected the words of Jesus, how He had said, "Before the cock crows you will three times disown me." And he went out and wept aloud, 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.
