before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew
that his hour was come that he should depart out of
this world unto the Father, having loved his own
which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.
13:2 And supper being ended, the devil having now
put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son,
to betray him;
13:3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all
things into his hands, and that he was come from
God, and went to God;
13:4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his
garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.
13:5 After that he poureth water into a bason, and
began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them
with the towel wherewith he was girded.
13:6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith
unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
13:7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do
thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
13:8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my
feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou
hast no part with me.
13:9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet
only, but also my hands and my head.
13:10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth
not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit:
and ye are clean, but not all.
13:11 For he knew who should betray him; therefore
said he, Ye are not all clean.
13:12 So after he had washed their feet, and had
taken his garments, and was set down again, he said
unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?
13:13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well;
for so I am.
13:14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed
your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.
13:15 For I have given you an example, that ye
should do as I have done to you.
13:16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is
not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent
greater than he that sent him.
13:17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do
13:18 I speak not of you all: I know whom I have
chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He
that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel
13:19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it
is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.
13:20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that
receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he
that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
13:21 When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in
spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I
say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
13:22 Then the disciples looked one on another,
doubting of whom he spake.
13:23 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of
his disciples, whom Jesus loved.
13:24 Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he
should ask who it should be of whom he spake.
13:25 He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him,
Lord, who is it?
13:26 Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give
a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped
the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of
13:27 And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then
said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.
13:28 Now no man at the table knew for what intent
he spake this unto him.
13:29 For some of them thought, because Judas had
the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those
things that we have need of against the feast; or,
that he should give something to the poor.
13:30 He then having received the sop went
immediately out: and it was night.
13:31 Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said,
Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is
glorified in him.
13:32 If God be glorified in him, God shall also
glorify him in himself, and shall straightway
13:33 Little children, yet a little while I am with
you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews,
Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.
13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye
love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also
love one another.
13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my
disciples, if ye have love one to another.
13:36 Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest
thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst
not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me
13:37 Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow
thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.
13:38 Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy
life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me
