14:1 Now after two days was [the feast of] the passover and the unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him with subtlety, and kill him:
14:2 for they said, Not during the feast, lest haply there shall be a tumult of the people.
14:3 And while he was in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster cruse of ointment of pure nard very costly; [and] she brake the cruse, and poured it over his head.
14:4 But there were some that had indignation among themselves, [saying], To what purpose hath this waste of the ointment been made?
14:6 But Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me.
14:7 For ye have the poor always with you, and whensoever ye will ye can do them good: but me ye have not always.
14:8 She hath done what she could; she hath anointed my body beforehand for the burying.
14:10 And Judas Iscariot, he that was one of the twelve, went away unto the chief priests, that he might deliver him unto them.
14:11 And they, when they heard it, were glad, and promised to give him money. And he sought how he might conveniently deliver him [unto them].
14:14 and wheresoever he shall enter in, say to the master of the house, The Teacher saith, Where is my guest-chamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?
14:15 And he will himself show you a large upper room furnished [and] ready: and there make ready for us.
14:16 And the 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 when it was evening he cometh with the twelve.
14:18 And as they sat and were eating, Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, One of you shall betray me, [even] he that eateth with me.
14:19 They began to be sorrowful, and to say unto him one by one, Is it I?
14:20 And he said unto them, [It is] one of the twelve, he that dippeth with me in the dish.
14:21 For the Son of man goeth, even as it is written of him: but woe unto that man through whom the Son of man is betrayed! good were it for that man if he had not been born.
14:23 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave to them: and they all drank of it.
14:24 And he said unto them, This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.
14:26 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out unto the mount of Olives.
14:27 And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered abroad.
14:28 Howbeit, after I am raised up, 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 thou to-day, [even] this night, before the cock crow twice, shalt deny me thrice.
14:31 But he spake exceedingly vehemently, If I must die with thee, I will not deny thee. And in like manner also said they all.
14:33 And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be greatly amazed, and sore troubled.
14:34 And he saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful even unto death: abide ye here, and watch.
14:36 And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; remove this cup from me: howbeit not what I will, but what thou wilt.
14:38 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
14:39 And again he went away, and prayed, saying the same words.
14:42 Arise, let us be going: behold, he that betrayeth me is at hand.
14:43 And straightway, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.
14:44 Now he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is he; take him, and lead him away safely.
14:45 And when he was come, straightway he came to him, and saith, Rabbi; and kissed him.
14:46 And they laid hands on him, and took him.
14:48 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a robber, with swords and staves to seize me?
14:50 And they all left him, and fled.
14:52 but he left the linen cloth, and fled naked.
14:55 Now the chief priests and the whole council sought witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found it not.
14:56 For many bare false witness against him, and their witness agreed not together.
14:57 And there stood up 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 in three days I will build another made without hands.
14:59 And not even so did their witness agree together.
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?
14:63 And the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What further need have we of witnesses?
14:64 Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be worthy of death.
14:67 and seeing Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and saith, Thou also wast with the Nazarene, [even] Jesus.
14:68 But he denied, saying, I neither know, nor understand what thou sayest: and he went out into the porch; and the cock crew.
14:69 And the maid saw him, and began again to say to them that stood by, This is [one] of them.
14:71 But he began to curse, and to swear, I know not this man of whom ye speak.
14:72 And straightway the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word, how that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.
