After two days was the feast of the passover, and of
unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the
scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and
put him to death.
14:2 But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there
be an uproar of the people.
14:3 And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the
leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having
an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very
precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on
14:4 And there were some that had indignation within
themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the
14:5 For it might have been sold for more than three
hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And
they murmured against her.
14:6 And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye
her? she hath wrought a good work on me.
14:7 For ye have the poor with you always, and
whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye
have not always.
14:8 She hath done what she could: she is come
aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.
14:9 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel
shall be preached throughout the whole world, this
also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a
memorial of her.
14:10 And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went
unto the chief priests, to betray him unto them.
14:11 And when they heard it, they were glad, and
promised to give him money. And he sought how he
might conveniently betray him.
14:12 And the first day of unleavened bread, when
they killed the passover, his disciples said unto
him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that
thou mayest eat the passover?
14:13 And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and
saith unto them, Go ye into the city, and there
shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water:
14:14 And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the
goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is the
guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my
14:15 And he will shew you a large upper room
furnished and prepared: there make ready for us.
14:16 And his disciples went forth, and came into
the city, and found as he had said unto them: and
they made ready the passover.
14:17 And in the evening he cometh with the twelve.
14:18 And as they sat and did eat, Jesus said,
Verily I say unto you, One of you which eateth with
me shall betray me.
14:19 And they began to be sorrowful, and to say
unto him one by one, Is it I? and another said, Is
14:20 And he answered and said unto them, It is one
of the twelve, that dippeth with me in the dish.
14:21 The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written
of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man
is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had
never been born.
14:22 And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and
blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said,
Take, eat: this is my body.
14:23 And he took the cup, and when he had given
thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of
14:24 And he said unto them, This is my blood of the
new testament, which is shed for many.
14:25 Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of
the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink
it new in the kingdom of God.
14:26 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out
into the mount of Olives.
14:27 And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be
offended because of me this night: for it is
written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep
shall be scattered.
14:28 But after that I am risen, I will go before
you into Galilee.
14:29 But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be
offended, yet will not I.
14:30 And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto
thee, That this day, even in this night, before the
cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.
14:31 But he spake the more vehemently, If I should
die with thee, I will not deny thee in any wise.
Likewise also said they all.
14:32 And they came to a place which was named
Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye
here, while I shall pray.
14:33 And he taketh with him Peter and James and
John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very
14:34 And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding
sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.
14:35 And he went forward a little, and fell on the
ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the
hour might pass from him.
14:36 And he said, Abba, Father, all things are
possible unto thee; take away this cup from me:
nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt.
14:37 And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and
saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not
thou watch one hour?
14:38 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into
temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh
14:39 And again he went away, and prayed, and spake
the same words.
14:40 And when he returned, he found them asleep
again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist
they what to answer him.
14:41 And he cometh the third time, and saith unto
them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is
enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is
betrayed into the hands of sinners.
14:42 Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me
is at hand.
14:43 And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh
Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great
multitude with swords and staves, from the chief
priests and the scribes and the elders.
14:44 And he that betrayed him had given them a
token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is
he; take him, and lead him away safely.
14:45 And as soon as he was come, he goeth
straightway to him, and saith, Master, master; and
14:46 And they laid their hands on him, and took
14:47 And one of them that stood by drew a sword,
and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off
14:48 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye
come out, as against a thief, with swords and with
staves to take me?
14:49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching,
and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be
14:50 And they all forsook him, and fled.
14:51 And there followed him a certain young man,
having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and
the young men laid hold on him:
14:52 And he left the linen cloth, and fled from
14:53 And they led Jesus away to the high priest:
and with him were assembled all the chief priests
and the elders and the scribes.
14:54 And Peter followed him afar off, even into the
palace of the high priest: and he sat with the
servants, and warmed himself at the fire.
14:55 And the chief priests and all the council
sought for witness against Jesus to put him to
death; and found none.
14:56 For many bare false witness against him, but
their witness agreed not together.
14:57 And there arose certain, and bare false
witness against him, saying,
14:58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple
that is made with hands, and within three days I
will build another made without hands.
14:59 But neither so did their witness agree
14:60 And the high priest stood up in the midst, and
asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is
it which these witness against thee?
14:61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing.
Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him,
Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?
14:62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son
of man sitting on the right hand of power, and
coming in the clouds of heaven.
14:63 Then the high priest rent his clothes, and
saith, What need we any further witnesses?
14:64 Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye?
And they all condemned him to be guilty of death.
14:65 And some began to spit on him, and to cover
his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him,
Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the
palms of their hands.
14:66 And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there
cometh one of the maids of the high priest:
14:67 And when she saw Peter warming himself, she
looked upon him, and said, And thou also wast with
Jesus of Nazareth.
14:68 But he denied, saying, I know not, neither
understand I what thou sayest. And he went out into
the porch; and the cock crew.
14:69 And a maid saw him again, and began to say to
them that stood by, This is one of them.
14:70 And he denied it again. And a little after,
they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou
art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy
speech agreeth thereto.
14:71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I
know not this man of whom ye speak.
14:72 And the second time the cock crew. And Peter
called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him,
Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me
thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.
