John 13:1-17

ESV 1 Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. MSG 1 Just before the Passover Feast, Jesus knew that the time had come to leave this world to go to the Father. Having loved his dear companions, he continued to love them right to the end. ESV 2 During supper, when the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him, MSG 2 It was suppertime. The Devil by now had Judas, son of Simon the Iscariot, firmly in his grip, all set for the betrayal. ESV 3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going back to God, MSG 3 Jesus knew that the Father had put him in complete charge of everything, that he came from God and was on his way back to God. ESV 4 rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. MSG 4 So he got up from the supper table, set aside his robe, and put on an apron. ESV 5 Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him. MSG 5 Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the feet of the disciples, drying them with his apron. ESV 6 He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, do you wash my feet?" MSG 6 When he got to Simon Peter, Peter said, "Master, you wash my feet?" ESV 7 Jesus answered him, "What I am doing you do not understand now, but afterward you will understand." MSG 7 Jesus answered, "You don't understand now what I'm doing, but it will be clear enough to you later." ESV 8 Peter said to him, "You shall never wash my feet." Jesus answered him, "If I do not wash you, you have no share with me." MSG 8 Peter persisted, "You're not going to wash my feet - ever!" Jesus said, "If I don't wash you, you can't be part of what I'm doing." ESV 9 Simon Peter said to him, "Lord, not my feet only but also my hands and my head!" MSG 9 "Master!" said Peter. "Not only my feet, then. Wash my hands! Wash my head!" ESV 10 Jesus said to him, "The one who has bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet, but is completely clean. And you are clean, but not every one of you." MSG 10 Jesus said, "If you've had a bath in the morning, you only need your feet washed now and you're clean from head to toe. My concern, you understand, is holiness, not hygiene. So now you're clean. But not every one of you." ESV 11 For he knew who was to betray him; that was why he said, "Not all of you are clean." MSG 11 (He knew who was betraying him. That's why he said, "Not every one of you.") ESV 12 When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, "Do you understand what I have done to you? MSG 12 After he had finished washing their feet, he took his robe, put it back on, and went back to his place at the table. ESV 13 You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. MSG 13 You address me as 'Teacher' and 'Master,' and rightly so. That is what I am. ESV 14 If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. MSG 14 So if I, the Master and Teacher, washed your feet, you must now wash each other's feet. ESV 15 For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you. MSG 15 I've laid down a pattern for you. What I've done, you do. ESV 16 Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. MSG 16 I'm only pointing out the obvious. A servant is not ranked above his master; an employee doesn't give orders to the employer. ESV 17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. MSG 17 If you understand what I'm telling you, act like it - and live a blessed life.
