39Coming out, He went to the Mount of Olives, as He was accustomed, and His disciples also followed Him.40When He came to the place, He said to them, "Pray that you may not enter into temptation."41And He was withdrawn from them about a stone's throw, and He knelt down and prayed,42saying, "Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done."43Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.44And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground. 45When He rose up from prayer, and had come to His disciples, He found them sleeping from sorrow.46Then He said to them, "Why do you sleep? Rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation."47And while He was still speaking, behold, a multitude; and he who was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them and drew near to Jesus to kiss Him.48But Jesus said to him, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?"49When those around Him saw what was going to happen, they said to Him, "Lord, shall we strike with the sword?"50And one of them struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his right ear.51But Jesus answered and said, "Permit even this." And He touched his ear and healed him.52Then Jesus said to the chief priests, captains of the temple, and the elders who had come to Him, "Have you come out, as against a robber, with swords and clubs?53When I was with you daily in the temple, you did not try to seize Me. But this is your hour, and the power of darkness."54Having arrested Him, they led Him and brought Him into the high priest's house. But Peter followed at a distance.55Now when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat among them.56And a certain servant girl, seeing him as he sat by the fire, looked intently at him and said, "This man was also with Him."57But he denied Him, saying, "Woman, I do not know Him."58And after a little while another saw him and said, "You also are of them." But Peter said, "Man, I am not!"59Then after about an hour had passed, another confidently affirmed, saying, "Surely this fellow also was with Him, for he is a Galilean."60But Peter said, "Man, I do not know what you are saying!" Immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed.61And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had said to him, "Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times."62So Peter went out and wept bitterly.63Now the men who held Jesus mocked Him and beat Him.64And having blindfolded Him, they struck Him on the face and asked Him, saying, "Prophesy! Who is the one who struck You?"65And many other things they blasphemously spoke against Him.66As soon as it was day, the elders of the people, both chief priests and scribes, came together and led Him into their council, saying,67"If You are the Christ, tell us." But He said to them, "If I tell you, you will by no means believe.68And if I also ask you, you will by no means answer Me or let Me go. 69Hereafter the Son of Man will sit on the right hand of the power of God."70Then they all said, "Are You then the Son of God?" So He said to them, "You rightly say that I am."71And they said, "What further testimony do we need? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth."
1It came to pass after these things that the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt offended their lord, the king of Egypt.2And Pharaoh was angry with his two officers, the chief butler and the chief baker.3So he put them in custody in the house of the captain of the guard, in the prison, the place where Joseph was confined.4And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and he served them; so they were in custody for a while.5Then the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, who were confined in the prison, had a dream, both of them, each man's dream in one night and each man's dream with its own interpretation.6And Joseph came in to them in the morning and looked at them, and saw that they were sad.7So he asked Pharaoh's officers who were with him in the custody of his lord's house, saying, "Why do you look so sad today?"8And they said to him, "We each have had a dream, and there is no interpreter of it." So Joseph said to them, "Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell them to me, please."9Then the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, "Behold, in my dream a vine was before me,10and in the vine were three branches; it was as though it budded, its blossoms shot forth, and its clusters brought forth ripe grapes.11Then Pharaoh's cup was in my hand; and I took the grapes and pressed them into Pharaoh's cup, and placed the cup in Pharaoh's hand."12And Joseph said to him, "This is the interpretation of it: The three branches are three days.13Now within three days Pharaoh will lift up your head and restore you to your place, and you will put Pharaoh's cup in his hand according to the former manner, when you were his butler.14But remember me when it is well with you, and please show kindness to me; make mention of me to Pharaoh, and get me out of this house.15For indeed I was stolen away from the land of the Hebrews; and also I have done nothing here that they should put me into the dungeon."16When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said to Joseph, "I also was in my dream, and there were three white baskets on my head.17In the uppermost basket were all kinds of baked goods for Pharaoh, and the birds ate them out of the basket on my head."18So Joseph answered and said, "This is the interpretation of it: The three baskets are three days.19Within three days Pharaoh will lift off your head from you and hang you on a tree; and the birds will eat your flesh from you."20Now it came to pass on the third day, which was Pharaoh's birthday, that he made a feast for all his servants; and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.21Then he restored the chief butler to his butlership again, and he placed the cup in Pharaoh's hand.22But he hanged the chief baker, as Joseph had interpreted to them.23Yet the chief butler did not remember Joseph, but forgot him.
1To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. In You, O Lord, I put my trust; Let me never be ashamed; Deliver me in Your righteousness.2Bow down Your ear to me, Deliver me speedily; Be my rock of refuge, A fortress of defense to save me.3For You are my rock and my fortress; Therefore, for Your name's sake, Lead me and guide me.4Pull me out of the net which they have secretly laid for me, For You are my strength.5Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.6I have hated those who regard useless idols; But I trust in the Lord.7I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy, For You have considered my trouble; You have known my soul in adversities,8And have not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; You have set my feet in a wide place.9Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am in trouble; My eye wastes away with grief, Yes, my soul and my body!10For my life is spent with grief, And my years with sighing; My strength fails because of my iniquity, And my bones waste away.11I am a reproach among all my enemies, But especially among my neighbors, And am repulsive to my acquaintances; Those who see me outside flee from me.12I am forgotten like a dead man, out of mind; I am like a broken vessel.13For I hear the slander of many; Fear is on every side; While they take counsel together against me, They scheme to take away my life.14But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say, "You are my God."15My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, And from those who persecute me.16Make Your face shine upon Your servant; Save me for Your mercies' sake.17Do not let me be ashamed, O Lord, for I have called upon You; Let the wicked be ashamed; Let them be silent in the grave.18Let the lying lips be put to silence, Which speak insolent things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.19Oh, how great is Your goodness, Which You have laid up for those who fear You, Which You have prepared for those who trust in You In the presence of the sons of men!20You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence From the plots of man; You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion From the strife of tongues.21Blessed be the Lord, For He has shown me His marvelous kindness in a strong city!22For I said in my haste, "I am cut off from before Your eyes"; Nevertheless You heard the voice of my supplications When I cried out to You.23Oh, love the Lord, all you His saints! For the Lord preserves the faithful, And fully repays the proud person.24Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the Lord.
