Matthew 26:1-16

ESV 1 When Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said to his disciples, MSG 1 When Jesus finished saying these things, he told his disciples, ESV 2 "You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified." MSG 2 "You know that Passover comes in two days. That's when the Son of Man will be betrayed and handed over for crucifixion." ESV 3 Then the chief priests and the elders of the people gathered in the palace of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas, MSG 3 At that very moment, the party of high priests and religious leaders was meeting in the chambers of the Chief Priest named Caiaphas, ESV 4 and plotted together in order to arrest Jesus by stealth and kill him. MSG 4 conspiring to seize Jesus by stealth and kill him. ESV 5 But they said, "Not during the feast, lest there be an uproar among the people." MSG 5 They agreed that it should not be done during Passover Week. "We don't want a riot on our hands," they said. ESV 6 Now when Jesus was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, MSG 6 When Jesus was at Bethany, a guest of Simon the Leper, ESV 7 a woman came up to him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on his head as he reclined at table. MSG 7 a woman came up to him as he was eating dinner and anointed him with a bottle of very expensive perfume. ESV 8 And when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, "Why this waste? MSG 8 When the disciples saw what was happening, they were furious. "That's criminal! ESV 9 For this could have been sold for a large sum and given to the poor." MSG 9 This could have been sold for a lot and the money handed out to the poor." ESV 10 But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, "Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a beautiful thing to me. MSG 10 When Jesus realized what was going on, he intervened. "Why are you giving this woman a hard time? She has just done something wonderfully significant for me. ESV 11 For you always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me. MSG 11 You will have the poor with you every day for the rest of your lives, but not me. ESV 12 In pouring this ointment on my body, she has done it to prepare me for burial. MSG 12 When she poured this perfume on my body, what she really did was anoint me for burial. ESV 13 Truly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her." MSG 13 You can be sure that wherever in the whole world the Message is preached, what she has just done is going to be remembered and admired." ESV 14 Then one of the twelve, whose name was Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests MSG 14 That is when one of the Twelve, the one named Judas Iscariot, went to the cabal of high priests ESV 15 and said, "What will you give me if I deliver him over to you?" And they paid him thirty pieces of silver. MSG 15 and said, "What will you give me if I hand him over to you?" They settled on thirty silver pieces. ESV 16 And from that moment he sought an opportunity to betray him. MSG 16 He began looking for just the right moment to hand him over.
