John 13

The Lord's Supper

1 Now before the Feast of 1the Passover, Jesus knowing that 2His hour had come that He would depart out of this world 3to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end.
2 During supper, 4the devil having already put into the heart of 5Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray Him,
3 Jesus, 6knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that 7He had come forth from God and was going back to God,
4 got up from supper, and laid aside His garments; and taking a towel, He 8girded Himself.

Jesus Washes the Disciples' Feet

5 Then He poured water into the basin, and began to 9wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.
6 So He came to Simon Peter. He said to Him, "Lord, do You wash my feet?"
7 Jesus answered and said to him, "What I do you do not realize now, but you will understand 10hereafter *."
8 Peter said to Him, "Never * shall You wash my feet!" Jesus answered him, "11If I do not wash you, 12you have no part with Me."
9 Simon Peter said to Him, "Lord, then wash not only my feet, but also my hands and my head."
10 Jesus said to him, "He who has bathed needs only * * to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and 13you are clean, but not all of you."
11 For 14He knew the one who was betraying Him; for this reason He said, "Not all of you are clean."
12 So when He had washed their feet, and 15taken His garments and reclined at the table again, He said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you?
13 "You call Me 16Teacher and 17Lord; and you are right, for so I am.
14 "If I then, 18the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet.
15 "For I gave you 19an example that you also should do as I did to you.
16 "Truly, truly, I say to you, 20a slave is not greater than his master, nor is 21one who is sent greater than the one who sent him.
17 "If you know these things, you are 22blessed if you do them.
18 "23I do not speak of all of you. I know the ones I have 24chosen; but it is 25that the Scripture may be fulfilled, '26HE WHO EATS MY BREAD HAS LIFTED UP HIS HEEL AGAINST ME.'
19 "From now on 27I am telling you before it comes to pass, so that when it does occur, you may believe that 28I am He.
20 "Truly, truly, I say to you, 29he who receives whomever * I send receives Me; and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me."

Jesus Predicts His Betrayal

21 When Jesus had said this, He 30became troubled in spirit, and testified and said, "Truly, truly, I say to you, that 31one of you will betray Me."
22 The disciples began looking at one another, 32at a loss to know of which one He was speaking.
23 There was reclining on 33Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, 34whom Jesus loved.
24 So Simon Peter gestured to him, and said to him, "Tell us who it is of whom He is speaking."
25 He, 35leaning back thus on Jesus' bosom, said to Him, "Lord, who is it?"
26 Jesus then answered, "That is the one for whom I shall dip the morsel and give it to him." So when He had dipped the morsel, He took and gave it to Judas, 36the son of Simon Iscariot.
27 After the morsel, 37Satan then 38entered into him. Therefore Jesus said to him, "What you do, do quickly."
28 Now no one of those reclining at the table knew for what purpose He had said this to him.
29 For some were supposing, because Judas 39had the money box, that Jesus was saying to him, "Buy the things we have need of 40for the feast "; or else, that he should 41give something to the poor.
30 So after receiving the morsel he went out immediately; and 42it was night.
31 Therefore when he had gone out, Jesus said, "Now is 43the Son of Man 44glorified, and 45God is glorified in Him;
32 if God is glorified in Him, 46God will also glorify Him in Himself, and will glorify Him immediately.
33 "47Little children, I am with you 48a little while longer. 49You will seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, now I also say to you, 'Where I am going, you cannot * come.'
34 "A 50new commandment I give to you, 51that you love one another, 52even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
35 "53By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."
36 Simon Peter said to Him, "Lord, where are You going?" Jesus answered, "54Where I go, you cannot * follow Me now; but 55you will follow later."
37 Peter said to Him, "Lord, why * can I not follow You right now? 56I will lay down my life for You."
38 Jesus answered, "Will you lay down your life for Me? Truly, truly, I say to you, 57a rooster will not crow until you deny Me three times.
