Matthew 26:44

44 This time he let them sleep on, and went back a third time to pray, going over the same ground one last time.

Matthew 26:44 In-Context

42 He then left them a second time. Again he prayed, "My Father, if there is no other way than this, drinking this cup to the dregs, I'm ready. Do it your way."
43 When he came back, he again found them sound asleep. They simply couldn't keep their eyes open.
44 This time he let them sleep on, and went back a third time to pray, going over the same ground one last time.
45 When he came back the next time, he said, "Are you going to sleep on and make a night of it? My time is up, the Son of Man is about to be handed over to the hands of sinners.
46 Get up! Let's get going! My betrayer is here."
