LK 22:1 And the feast of the unleavened food was coming nigh, that is called Passover,
LK 22:2 and the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how they may take him up, for they were afraid of the people.
LK 22:3 And the Adversary entered into Judas, who is surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve,
LK 22:4 and he, having gone away, spake with the chief priests and the magistrates, how he might deliver him up to them,
LK 22:5 and they rejoiced, and covenanted to give him money,
LK 22:6 and he agreed, and was seeking a favourable season to deliver him up to them without tumult.
LK 22:7 And the day of the unleavened food came, in which it was behoving the passover to be sacrificed,
LK 22:8 and he sent Peter and John, saying, `Having gone on, prepare to us the passover, that we may eat;'
LK 22:9 and they said to him, `Where wilt thou that we might prepare?'
LK 22:10 And he said to them, `Lo, in your entering into the city, there shall meet you a man, bearing a pitcher of water, follow him to the house where he doth go in,
LK 22:11 and ye shall say to the master of the house, The Teacher saith to thee, Where is the guest-chamber where the passover with my disciples I may eat?
LK 22:12 and he shall show you a large upper room furnished, there make ready;'
LK 22:13 and they, having gone away, found as he hath said to them, and they made ready the passover.
LK 22:14 And when the hour come, he reclined (at meat), and the twelve apostles with him,
LK 22:15 and he said unto them, `With desire I did desire to eat this passover with you before my suffering,
LK 22:16 for I say to you, that no more may I eat of it till it may be fulfilled in the reign of God.'
LK 22:17 And having taken a cup, having given thanks, he said, `Take this and divide to yourselves,
LK 22:18 for I say to you that I may not drink of the produce of the vine till the reign of God may come.'
LK 22:19 And having taken bread, having given thanks, he brake and gave to them, saying, `This is my body, that for you is being given, this do ye -- to remembrance of me.'
LK 22:20 In like manner, also, the cup after the supping, saying, `This cup `is' the new covenant in my blood, that for you is being poured forth.
LK 22:21 `But, lo, the hand of him delivering me up `is' with me on the table,
LK 22:22 and indeed the Son of Man doth go according to what hath been determined; but wo to that man through whom he is being delivered up.'
LK 22:23 And they began to reason among themselves, who then of them it may be, who is about to do this thing.
LK 22:24 And there happened also a strife among them -- who of them is accounted to be greater.
LK 22:25 And he said to them, `The kings of the nations do exercise lordship over them, and those exercising authority upon them are called benefactors;
LK 22:26 but ye `are' not so, but he who is greater among you -- let him be as the younger; and he who is leading, as he who is ministering;
LK 22:27 for who is greater? he who is reclining (at meat), or he who is ministering? is it not he who is reclining (at meat)? and I -- I am in your midst as he who is ministering.
LK 22:28 `And ye -- ye are those who have remained with me in my temptations,
LK 22:29 and I appoint to you, as my Father did appoint to me, a kingdom,
LK 22:30 that ye may eat and may drink at my table, in my kingdom, and may sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.'
LK 22:31 And the Lord said, `Simon, Simon, lo, the Adversary did ask you for himself to sift as the wheat,
LK 22:32 and I besought for thee, that thy faith may not fail; and thou, when thou didst turn, strengthen thy brethren.'
LK 22:33 And he said to him, `Sir, with thee I am ready both to prison and to death to go;'
LK 22:34 and he said, `I say to thee, Peter, a cock shall not crow to-day, before thrice thou mayest disown knowing me.'
LK 22:35 And he said to them, `When I sent you without bag, and scrip, and sandals, did ye lack anything?' and they said, `Nothing.'
LK 22:36 Then said he to them, `But, now, he who is having a bag, let him take `it' up, and in like manner also a scrip; and he who is not having, let him sell his garment, and buy a sword,
LK 22:37 for I say to you, that yet this that hath been written it behoveth to be fulfilled in me: And with lawless ones he was reckoned, for also the things concerning me have an end.'
LK 22:38 And they said, `Sir, lo, here `are' two swords;' and he said to them, `It is sufficient.'
LK 22:39 And having gone forth, he went on, according to custom, to the mount of the Olives, and his disciples also followed him,
LK 22:40 and having come to the place, he said to them, `Pray ye not to enter into temptation.'
LK 22:41 And he was withdrawn from them, as it were a stone's cast, and having fallen on the knees he was praying,
LK 22:42 saying, `Father, if Thou be counselling to make this cup pass from me --; but, not my will, but Thine be done.' --
LK 22:43 And there appeared to him a messenger from heaven strengthening him;
LK 22:44 and having been in agony, he was more earnestly praying, and his sweat became, as it were, great drops of blood falling upon the ground.
LK 22:45 And having risen up from the prayer, having come unto the disciples, he found them sleeping from the sorrow,
LK 22:46 and he said to them, `Why do ye sleep? having risen, pray that ye may not enter into temptation.'
LK 22:47 And while he is speaking, lo, a multitude, and he who is called Judas, one of the twelve, was coming before them, and he came nigh to Jesus to kiss him,
LK 22:48 and Jesus said to him, `Judas, with a kiss the Son of Man dost thou deliver up?'
LK 22:49 And those about him, having seen what was about to be, said to him, `Sir, shall we smite with a sword?'
LK 22:50 And a certain one of them smote the servant of the chief priest, and took off his right ear,
LK 22:51 and Jesus answering said, `Suffer ye thus far,' and having touched his ear, he healed him.
LK 22:52 And Jesus said to those having come upon him -- chief priests, and magistrates of the temple, and elders -- `As upon a robber have ye come forth, with swords and sticks?
LK 22:53 while daily I was with you in the temple, ye did stretch forth no hands against me; but this is your hour and the power of the darkness.'
LK 22:54 And having taken him, they led and brought him to the house of the chief priest. And Peter was following afar off,
LK 22:55 and they having kindled a fire in the midst of the court, and having sat down together, Peter was sitting in the midst of them,
LK 22:56 and a certain maid having seen him sitting at the light, and having earnestly looked at him, she said, `And this one was with him!'
LK 22:57 and he disowned him, saying, `Woman, I have not known him.'
LK 22:58 And after a little, another having seen him, said, `And thou art of them!' and Peter said, `Man, I am not.'
LK 22:59 And one hour, as it were, having intervened, a certain other was confidently affirming, saying, `Of a truth this one also was with him, for he is also a Galilean;'
LK 22:60 and Peter said, `Man, I have not known what thou sayest;' and presently, while he is speaking, a cock crew.
LK 22:61 And the Lord having turned did look on Peter, and Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he said to him -- `Before a cock shall crow, thou mayest disown me thrice;'
LK 22:62 and Peter having gone without, wept bitterly.
LK 22:63 And the men who were holding Jesus were mocking him, beating `him';
LK 22:64 and having blindfolded him, they were striking him on the face, and were questioning him, saying, `Prophesy who he is who smote thee?'
LK 22:65 and many other things, speaking evilly, they spake in regard to him.
LK 22:66 And when it became day there was gathered together the eldership of the people, chief priests also, and scribes, and they led him up to their own sanhedrim,
LK 22:67 saying, `If thou be the Christ, tell us.' And he said to them, `If I may tell you, ye will not believe;
LK 22:68 and if I also question `you', ye will not answer me or send me away;
LK 22:69 henceforth, there shall be the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of the power of God.'
LK 22:70 And they all said, `Thou, then, art the Son of God?' and he said unto them, `Ye say `it', because I am;'
LK 22:71 and they said, `What need yet have we of testimony? for we ourselves did hear `it' from his mouth.'
