26:2 You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified."
26:4 They took counsel together that they might take Jesus by deceit, and kill him.
26:5 But they said, "Not during the feast, lest a riot occur among the 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, knowing this, said to them, "Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a good work for me.
26:11 For you always have the poor with you; but you don`t always have me.
26:12 For in that she poured this ointment on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial.
26:14 Then one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests,
26:15 and said, "What are you willing to give me, and I will deliver him to you?" They weighed out for him thirty pieces of silver.
26:16 From that time he sought opportunity to betray him.
26:19 The disciples did as Jesus commanded them, and they prepared the Passover.
26:21 As they were eating, he said, "Most assuredly I tell you, that one of you will betray me."
26:22 They were exceedingly sorrowful, and each began to ask him, "It isn`t me, is it, Lord?"
26:24 The Son of Man goes, even as it is written of him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would be better for that man if he had not been born."
26:25 Judas, who betrayed him, answered, "It isn`t me, is it, Rabbi?" He said to him, "So you have said."
26:27 He took the cup, gave thanks, and gave to them, saying, "Drink all of it,
26:28 for this is my blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for many for the remission of sins.
26:30 When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
26:31 Then Jesus said to them, "All of you will be offended by me tonight, for it is written, `I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered abroad.`
26:32 But after I am raised up, I will go before you into Galilee."
26:33 But Peter answered him, "Even if all will be offended by you, I will never be offended."
26:34 Jesus said to him, "Most assuredly I tell you, that tonight, before the cock crows, you will deny me three times."
26:35 Peter said to him, "Even if I must die with you, I will not deny you." All of the disciples also said likewise.
26:38 Then he said to them, "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here, and watch with me."
26:39 He went forward a little, fell on his face, and prayed, saying, "My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass away from me; nevertheless, not what I want, but what you want."
26:41 Watch and pray, that you don`t enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."
26:46 Arise, let us be going. Behold, he who betrays me is at hand."
26:47 While he was still speaking, behold, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and clubs, from the chief priest and elders of the people.
26:48 Now he who betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, "Whoever I will kiss, that is he. Take him."
26:49 Immediately he came to Jesus, and said, "Hail, Rabbi!" and kissed him.
26:50 Jesus said to him, "Friend, why are you here?" Then they came and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.
26:52 Then Jesus said to him, "Put your sword back into its place, for all those who take the sword will die by the sword.
26:53 Or do you think that I can`t ask my Father, and he would even now send me more than twelve legions of angels?
26:54 How then would the scriptures be fulfilled that it must be so?"
26:56 But all this has happened, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled." Then all the disciples left him, and fled.
26:59 Now the chief priests, the elders, and the whole council sought false testimony against Jesus, that they might put him to death;
26:60 and they found none. Even though many false witnesses came forward, they found none. But at last two false witnesses came forward,
26:62 The high priest stood up, and answered him, "Have you no answer? What is this that these testify against you?"
26:66 What do you think?" They answered, "He is worthy of death!"
26:67 Then they spit in his face and beat him with their fists, and some slapped him,
26:68 saying, "Prophesy to us, you Christ! Who hit you?"
26:69 Now Peter was sitting outside in the court, and a maid came to him, saying, "You were also with Jesus, the Galilean."
26:70 But he denied before them all, saying, "I don`t know what you are talking about."
26:71 When he had gone out onto the porch, someone else saw him, and said to those who were there, "This man also was with Jesus of Nazareth."
26:72 Again he denied with an oath, "I don`t know the man."
26:73 After a little while those who stood by came and said to Peter, "Surely you are also one of them, for your speech makes you known."
26:74 Then began he to curse and to swear, "I don`t know the man!" Immediately the cock crowed.
26:75 Peter remembered the word which Jesus had said to him, "Before the cock crows, you will deny me three times." He went out and wept bitterly.
