"Simon, Simon! Listen! Satan has received permission to test all of you, to separate the good from the bad, as a farmer separates the wheat from the chaff.
But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith will not fail. And when you turn back to me, you must strengthen your brothers."
Peter answered, "Lord, I am ready to go to prison with you and to die with you!"
"I tell you, Peter," Jesus said, "the rooster will not crow tonight until you have said three times that you do not know me."
Then Jesus asked his disciples, "When I sent you out that time without purse, bag, or shoes, did you lack anything?" 1 "Not a thing," they answered.
"But now," Jesus said, "whoever has a purse or a bag must take it; and whoever does not have a sword must sell his coat and buy one.
For I tell you that the scripture which says, "He shared the fate of criminals,' must come true about me, because what was written about me is coming true." 2
The disciples said, "Look! Here are two swords, Lord!" "That is enough!" he replied.
Jesus left the city and went, as he usually did, to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples went with him.
When he arrived at the place, he said to them, "Pray that you will not fall into temptation."
Then he went off from them about the distance of a stone's throw and knelt down and prayed.
"Father," he said, "if you will, take this cup of suffering away from me. Not my will, however, but your will be done."
An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him.
In great anguish he prayed even more fervently; his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.
Rising from his prayer, he went back to the disciples and found them asleep, worn out by their grief.
He said to them, "Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray that you will not fall into temptation."
