Jesus *answered, “Will you lay down your life for Me? Truly, truly, I say to you, a rooster will not crow until you deny Me three times.
Pride goes before destruction,
And a haughty spirit before stumbling.
And Jesus *said to him, “Truly I say to you, that this very night, before a rooster crows twice, you yourself will deny Me three times.”
As Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant-girls of the high priest *came,
He who trusts in his own heart is a fool,
But he who walks wisely will be delivered.
A man’s pride will bring him low,
But a humble spirit will obtain honor.
Jesus said to him, “Truly I say to you that this very night, before a rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.”
Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard, and a servant-girl came to him and said, “You too were with Jesus the Galilean.”
And He said, “I say to you, Peter, the rooster will not crow today until you have denied three times that you know Me.”
And a servant-girl, seeing him as he sat in the firelight and looking intently at him, said, “This man was with Him too.”
but Peter was standing at the door outside. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to the doorkeeper, and brought Peter in.
Now Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. So they said to him, “You are not also one of His disciples, are you?” He denied it, and said, “I am not.”
Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall.
