known that thou hast sent me. And I have 26

And when they had sung an hymn, they went

30 a 2 Sam out over the brook Cedron, into the mount of

J. 18.1 15. 23 Olives. Then cometh Jesus with them unto a

M". 26. place called Gethsemane, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples. J. 18. 1 And he saith unto the disciples, “Sit ye here,

MW. 26. “ while I go and pray yonder.” And he took

36, 37 with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. Then saith he unto them, “ Mv soul is exceed- 38 “ ing sorrowful, even unto death : tarry ye here,

“ and watch with me.” And he went a little 39 • Heb. á 7. farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, say

ing, “O my Father, if it be possible, let this Phil. 2 & “ cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I

“ will, but as thou wilt." And when he rose up L. 22.45
from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he
found them sleeping for sorrow. And he saith MI". 26.

unto Peter, “ What, could re not watch with 40 * Ephes. 6. “ me one hour? d watch and pray, that ye en- 41

“ ter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is

willing, but the flesh is weak.” He went away 42
again the second time, and prayed, saying, “O
“ my Father, if this cup may not pass away
“ from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.”

43
And he came and found them asleep again, (for

Mk. 14. their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him. And he left them, and went

MW. 26. away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. And there appeared an angel

L. 22.43 * Heb. 5.7. unto him from heaven, strengthening him. And

being in an agony he prayed more earnestly:

might be fulfilled, which he spake, “Of them M". 26.“ which thou gavest me have I lost none.” Now

we smite with the sword ? Then Simon Peter J. 18.
having a sword drew it, and smote the high 10
priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The
servant's name was Malchus. Then said Jesus 11
unto Peter, “ Put up thy sword into the sheath:

Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and 52 captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, “Be ye come out, as against “ a thief, with swords and staves? when I was 53 “ daily with you in the temple, ye stretched “ forth no hands against me: but this is your “ hour, and the power of darkness.” Then all M". 26. the disciples forsook him, and fled.

And there followed him a certain young man, Mk. 14. having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; 51 and 3 the young men laid hold on him: and 52 he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.

131. Jesus is brought before Annas and Caiaphas.

Peter denies him thrice. J. 18. 13 And they led him away to Annas first; for A. D. 33.

he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the 14 high priest that same year. Now Caiaphas was

he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it

was expedient that one man should die for the
24 people. Now Annas had sent him bound unto
15 Caiaphas the high priest. And Simon Peter

followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that
disciple was known unto the high priest, and

went in with Jesus into the palace of the high
16 priest. But Peter stood at the door without.

Then went out that other disciple, which was
known unto the high priest, and spake unto

her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.
18 And the servants and officers stood there, who

had made a fire of coals; for it was cold : and

they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with M". 26. them, and warmed himself. And [Peter] went

58 in, and sat with the servants, to see the end. Mk. 14. And as Peter was beneath in the palace,

66 there cometh the damsel that kept the door. J.18. 17 And when she saw Peter warming himself, she Mk. 14. looked upon him, and said, Art not thou also

67 one of this man's disciples? But he denied, , J. 18. 17 saying, I know not, neither understand I what Mk. 14. thou sayest. And he went out into the porch ; 68 and the cock crew.

And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.

70 And he denied it again. And about the space L. 22.59 of one hour after, they that stood by said again Mk. 14. to Peter, Surely thou art one of them : * for • Acts 2.7.

70 thou art a Galilæan, and thy speech agreeth
71 thereto. But he began to curse and to swear,

saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak. L. 22.60 And immediately, while he yet spake, the

132. Jesus questioned before Caiaphas, and after-

ward before the whole Jewish council, con-
fesseth himself to be the Christ, and is pro-

nounced guilty of death.
The high priest then asked Jesus of his dis-J. 18.
ciples, and of his doctrine. Jesus answered him, 19, 20
“I spake openly to the world; I ever taught
“ in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither
“ the Jews always resort; and in secret have
“ I said nothing. Why askest thou me? ask 21
“ them which heard me, what I have said unto
“ them: behold, they know what I said.” And 22

so? Jesus answered him, “If I have spoken 23
“ evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why

And as soon as it was day, bthe elders of L. 22.
the people and the chief priests and the scribes 66
came together, and led him into their council.
And the chief priests and all the council sought Mk. 14.
for witness against Jesus to put him to death ; 55
and found none.

For many bare false witness 56
against him, but their witness agreed not toge-
ther. And there arose certain, and bare false 57
witness against him, saying, We heard him say, 58
I will destroy this temple that is made with
hands, and within three days I will build an-,
other made without hands. But neither so did 59
their witness agree together. And the high 60
priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus,
