"In solemn truth I tell you," replied Jesus, "that this very night, before the cock crows, you will three times disown me."
"Even if I must die with you," declared Peter, "I will never disown you." In like manner protested all the disciples.
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."
And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zabdi. Then He began to be full of anguish and distress,
and He said to them, "My soul is crushed with anguish to the very point of death; wait here, and keep awake with me."
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."
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!
Keep awake, and pray that you may not enter into temptation: the spirit is right willing, but the body is frail."
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."
He came and again found them asleep, for they were very tired.
So He left them, and went away once more and prayed a third time, again using the same words.
