Mark 14:26

And when they had sung an hymn
The Hallell, used at the passover: they went out into the Mount of Olives;
Christ, and eleven of his disciples; for Judas now separated from them, and went to the chief priests to acquaint them how things were, where Jesus was going, and where they might apprehend him; (See Gill on Matthew 26:30).
