1 And before the feast of the passover, Jesus knowing that the hour has come when He must depart out of this world to His Father, having loved His own who were in the world, with divine love, He loved them perfectly.
2 And the supper being on hand, the devil already having entered into the heart, that Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, should betray Him, 3 knowing that the Father has given all things into His hands, and He came out from God, and is going away to God, 4 He rises from the supper, and lays aside His garments, and taking a towel, girded Himself; 5 then He pours water into a bowl, and began to wash the feet of the disciples, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.
6 Then He comes to Simon Peter; he says to Him; Lord, do you wash my feet?
7 Jesus responded and said to him, What I do you know not now; but shall understand hereafter.
8 Peter says to Him, You may never wash my feet. Jesus responded to him, If I wash thee not, thou hast not part with me.
9 And Simon Peter says to Him, Lord, not only my feet, but my hands and my head.
10 Jesus says to Him, He that is bathed hath no need to wash his hands, but is altogether clean: and you are clean, but not all. 11 For He knew the one betraying Him. On this account He said, You are not all clean.
12 Then when He washed their feet, and took His garments, and sat down again, He said to them, Do you understand what I have done to you? 13 You call me Master and Lord, and you speak beautifully; for I am. 14 If then I, your Lord and Master, washed your feet, you ought also to wash the feet of one another. 15 For I have given unto you an example, that you may also do as I have done to you.
16 Truly, truly, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; nor the apostle greater than him that sent him. 17 If you know these things, happy are ye if you may do them. 18 I do not speak concerning you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me has lifted up his heel against me.
19 Now I tell you before it takes place, in order that you may believe, when it may be done, that I am He. 20 Truly, truly, I say unto you, The one receiving the one whom I may send, receiveth me; and the one receiving me, receives Him that sent me.
21 Jesus saying these things, was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said; Truly, truly, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
22 Then the disciples began to look to one another, being at a loss concerning which one He speaks. 23 And one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved, was leaning on the bosom of Jesus. 24 Then Simon Peter beckons to him, to ask who he might be concerning whom He speaks. 25 And that one, falling toward the bosom of Jesus says to Him, Lord, who is he?
26 And Jesus responds, He is that one to whom, having dipped the morsel, I will give it. And having dipped the morsel, He takes it, and gives it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. 27 And after the morsel, Satan entered into him. Then Jesus says to him; What thou art doing, do more quickly.
28 And no one of those sitting with Him knew what He said to him: 29 for some thought, as Judas had the purse, that Jesus says to him, Purchase some of those things of which we have need at the supper; or something that he might give to the poor. 30 Then he having taken the morsel, went out immediately: and it was night.
31 Then when he went out, Jesus says, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in Him. 32 And if God is glorified in Him, God will indeed glorify Him in Himself, and will glorify Him immediately.
33 Children, I am still with you. You shall seek me, and as I said to the Jews, Whither I go, you are not able to come; and now I say to you.
34 I give unto a new commandment, That you must love one another with divine love; as I have loved you with divine love, that you must also love one another with divine love: 35 in this shall all know that you are my disciples, if you may have divine love one with another.
36 Simon Peter says to Him; Lord, whither do you go? Jesus responded, Whither I go you are not able to follow me now; but shall follow me hereafter.
37 Peter says to Him; Lord, why am I not able to follow thee now? I will lay down my soul for thee.
38 Jesus responds to him, Wilt thou lay down thy soul for me? Truly, truly, I say unto thee, that the cock shall not crow, until thou shalt thrice deny me.
