22:1 Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the
22:2 And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him;
for they feared the people.
22:3 Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the
number of the twelve.
22:4 And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and
captains, how he might betray him unto them.
22:5 And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money.
22:6 And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them
in the absence of the multitude.
22:7 Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be
22:8 And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the
passover, that we may eat.
22:9 And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare? 22:10
And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city,
there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him
into the house where he entereth in.
22:11 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith
unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover
with my disciples? 22:12 And he shall shew you a large upper room
furnished: there make ready.
22:13 And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made
ready the passover.
22:14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles
22:15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this
passover with you before I suffer: 22:16 For I say unto you, I will
not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
22:17 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and
divide it among yourselves: 22:18 For I say unto you, I will not drink
of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.
22:19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto
them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in
remembrance of me.
22:20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new
testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
22:21 But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the
22:22 And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe
unto that man by whom he is betrayed! 22:23 And they began to enquire
among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing.
22:24 And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be
accounted the greatest.
22:25 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise
lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are
22:26 But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let
him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.
22:27 For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that
serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he
22:28 Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations.
22:29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed
unto me; 22:30 That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom,
and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
22:31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to
have you, that he may sift you as wheat: 22:32 But I have prayed for
thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen
22:33 And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both
into prison, and to death.
22:34 And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this
day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.
22:35 And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip,
and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.
22:36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him
take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him
sell his garment, and buy one.
22:37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be
accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for
the things concerning me have an end.
22:38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said
unto them, It is enough.
22:39 And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of
Olives; and his disciples also followed him.
22:40 And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye
enter not into temptation.
22:41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled
down, and prayed, 22:42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove
this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
22:43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening
22:44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat
was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
22:45 And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples,
he found them sleeping for sorrow, 22:46 And said unto them, Why sleep
ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.
22:47 And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was
called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto
Jesus to kiss him.
22:48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man
with a kiss? 22:49 When they which were about him saw what would
follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?
22:50 And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut
off his right ear.
22:51 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched
his ear, and healed him.
22:52 Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the
temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as
against a thief, with swords and staves? 22:53 When I was daily with
you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is
your hour, and the power of darkness.
22:54 Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high
priest's house. And Peter followed afar off.
22:55 And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and
were set down together, Peter sat down among them.
22:56 But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and
earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.
22:57 And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.
22:58 And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art
also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.
22:59 And about the space of one hour after another confidently
affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is
22:60 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And
immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.
22:61 And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered
the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow,
thou shalt deny me thrice.
22:62 And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.
22:63 And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him.
22:64 And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face,
and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee? 22:65 And
many other things blasphemously spake they against him.
22:66 And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the
chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their
council, saying, 22:67 Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto
them, If I tell you, ye will not believe: 22:68 And if I also ask you,
ye will not answer me, nor let me go.
22:69 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the
power of God.
22:70 Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said
unto them, Ye say that I am.
22:71 And they said, What need we any further witness? for we
ourselves have heard of his own mouth.
