1 When Jesus had said these things, he went out with his disciples over the strand of Cedron, where was a yard, or a garden, into which he entered, and his disciples.
2 And Judas, that betrayed him, knew the place, for oft Jesus came thither with his disciples.
3 Therefore when Judas had taken a company of knights, and ministers of the bishops and of the Pharisees, he came thither with lanterns, and brands, and arms.
4 And so Jesus witting all things that were to come on him, went forth, and said to them, Whom seek ye?
5 They answered to him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith to them, I am. And Judas that betrayed him, stood with them.
6 And when he said to them, I am, they went aback, and fell down on the earth.
7 And again he asked them, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.
8 He answered to them, I said to you, that I am; therefore if ye seek me, suffer ye these to go away.
9 That the word which he said should be fulfilled, For I lost not any of them, which thou hast given to me.
10 Therefore Simon Peter had a sword, and drew it out [Therefore Simon Peter having a sword, drew it out], and smote the servant of the bishop, and cut off his right ear. And the name of the servant was Malchus.
11 Therefore Jesus said to Peter, Put thou thy sword into thy sheath [Send thou the sword into the sheath]; wilt thou not, that I drink the cup, that my Father gave to me?
