Before the feast of ester whe Iesus knewe that his houre was come that he shuld departe out of this worlde vnto the father. When he loved his which were in the worlde vnto the ende he loved the.
And when supper was ended after that the devyll had put in the hert of Iudas Iscariot Simos sonne to betraye him:
Iesus knowinge that the father had geve all thinges into his hondes. And that he was come from God and went to God
he rose from supper and layde a syde his vpper garmentes and toke a towell and gyrd him selfe.
After that poured he water into a basyn and beganne to wash his disciples fete and to wype them with the towell wherwith he was gyrde.
Then came he to Simon Peter. And Peter sayde to him: Lorde shalt thou wesshe my fete?
Iesus answered and sayde vnto him: what I do thou wotest not now but thou shalt knowe herafter.
Peter sayd vnto him: thou shalt not wesshe my fete whill ye worlde stondeth. Iesus answered him: yf I wasshe ye not thou shalt have no part with me.
Simon Peter sayde vnto him: Lorde not my fete only: but also my handes and my heed.
Iesus sayde to him: he that is wesshed nedeth not save to wesshe his fete and is clene every whit. And ye are clene: but not all.
For he knewe his betrayer. Therfore sayde he: ye are not all clene.
After he had wesshed their fete and receaved his clothes and was set doune agayne he sayde vnto them? wot ye what I have done to you?
Ye call me master and Lorde and ye saye well for so am I.
If I then youre Lorde and master have wesshed youre fete ye also ought to wesshe one anothers fete.
For I have geven you an ensample that ye shuld do as I have done to you.
Verely verely I saye vnto you the servaunt is not greater then his master nether the messenger greater then he that sent him.
If ye vnderstonde these thinges happy are ye yf ye do them.
