26:2 Ye know that after two days the passover cometh, and the Son of man is delivered up to be crucified.
26:4 and they took counsel together that they might take Jesus by subtlety, and kill him.
26:5 But they said, Not during the feast, lest a tumult arise among people.
26:6 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,
26:9 For this [ointment] might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.
26:10 But Jesus perceiving it said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.
26:11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.
26:12 For in that she poured this ointment upon my body, she did it to prepare me for burial.
26:14 Then one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,
26:15 and said, What are ye willing to give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they weighed unto him thirty pieces of silver.
26:16 And from that time he sought opportunity to deliver him [unto them.]
26:19 And the disciples did as Jesus appointed them; and they made ready the passover.
26:21 and as they were eating, he said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
26:22 And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began to say unto him every one, Is it I, Lord?
26:24 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.
26:25 And Judas, who betrayed him, answered and said, Is it I, Rabbi? He saith unto him, Thou hast said.
26:27 And he took a cup, and gave thanks, and gave to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
26:28 for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many unto remission of sins.
26:30 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out unto the mount of Olives.
26:31 Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended in me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.
26:32 But after I am raised up, I will go before you into Galilee.
26:33 But Peter answered and said unto him, If all shall be offended in thee, I will never be offended.
26:34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, that this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
26:35 Peter saith unto him, Even if I must die with thee, [yet] will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.
26:38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: abide ye here, and watch with me.
26:39 And he went forward a little, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass away from me: nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt.
26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
26:42 Again a second time he went away, and prayed, saying, My Father, if this cannot pass away, except I drink it, thy will be done.
26:46 Arise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that betrayeth me.
26:47 And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priest and elders of the people.
26:48 Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is he: take him.
26:49 And straightway he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, Rabbi; and kissed him.
26:50 And Jesus said unto him, Friend, [do] that for which thou art come. Then they came and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.
26:52 Then saith Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into its place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
26:53 Or thinkest thou that I cannot beseech my Father, and he shall even now send me more than twelve legions of angels?
26:54 How then should the scriptures be fulfilled that thus it must be?
26:56 But all this is come to pass, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples left him, and fled.
26:59 Now the chief priests and the whole council sought false witness against Jesus, that they might put him to death;
26:60 and they found it not, though many false witnesses came. But afterward came two,
26:62 And the high priest stood up, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?
26:66 what think ye? They answered and said, He is worthy of death.
26:67 Then did they spit in his face and buffet him: and some smote him with the palms of their hands,
26:68 saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ: who is he that struck thee?
26:69 Now Peter was sitting without in the court: and a maid came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus the Galilaean.
26:70 But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest.
26:71 And when he was gone out into the porch, another [maid] saw him, and saith unto them that were there, This man also was with Jesus of Nazareth.
26:72 And again he denied with an oath, I know not the man.
26:73 And after a little while they that stood by came and said to Peter, Of a truth thou also art [one] of them; for thy speech maketh thee known.
26:74 Then began he to curse and to swear, I know not the man. And straightway the cock crew.
26:75 And Peter remembered the word which Jesus had said, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.
