Jesus replied, “Will you lay down your life for Me? I assure you: A rooster will not crow until you have denied Me three times.
Pride comes before destruction,
and an arrogant spirit before a fall.
“I assure you,” Jesus said to him, “today, this very night, before the rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times!”
While Peter was in the courtyard below, one of the high priest’s servants came.
The one who trusts in himself is a fool,
but one who walks in wisdom will be safe.
A person’s pride will humble him,
but a humble spirit will gain honor.
“I assure you,” Jesus said to him, “tonight, before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times!”
Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard. A servant approached him and she said, “You were with Jesus the Galilean too.”
“I tell you, Peter,” He said, “the rooster will not crow today until you deny three times that you know Me!”
When a servant saw him sitting in the firelight, and looked closely at him, she said, “This man was with Him too.”
But Peter remained standing outside by the door. So the other disciple, the one known to the high priest, went out and spoke to the girl who was the doorkeeper and brought Peter in.
Now Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. They said to him, “You aren’t one of His disciples too, are you?”
He denied it and said, “I am not!”
So, whoever thinks he stands must be careful not to fall.
