1 AND before the feast of the passover, Jesus knowing that his hour had come to depart from this world to the Father, having loved his own in the world he loved them to the end.
2 And supper being over, the devil having already put it in the heart that Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, should betray him, 3 he knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he came from God and was going to God, 4 arose from supper, and laid aside his clothes, and taking a towel girded himself: 5 Then he put water into the wash-basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was girded.
6 Then he came to Simon Peter; he said to him, Lord, do you wash my feet?
7 Jesus answered and said to him, What I do you know not now, but you shall know hereafter.
8 Peter said to him, You shall never by any means wash my feet. He answered him, Unless I wash you you have no part with me.
9 Simon Peter said to him, Lord, not my feet only, but my hands and my head.
10 Jesus said to him, He that is washed needs only that his feet should be washed, but is wholly pure; and you are pure, but not all. 11 For he knew him that was to betray him; therefore, he said, You are not all pure.
12 When, therefore, he had washed their feet, and taken his clothes and sat down again, he said to them, Do you know what I have done to you? 13 You call me Teacher and Lord; and you say well, for I am. 14 If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done.
16 I tell you most truly, the servant is not greater than his lord, nor the apostle greater than he that sent him. 17 If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. 18 I speak not of you all; I know whom I have chosen; but that the Scripture may be fulfilled, He that eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me.
19 I tell you from this time, before it occurs, that when it occurs you may believe that I am [the Christ]. 20 I tell you most truly, He that receives one that I send receives me; and he that receives me receives him that sent me.
21 Having said these things Jesus was troubled in spirit, and testified and said, I tell you most truly, that one of you shall betray me.
22 The disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spoke. 23 One of his disciples, whom Jesus loved, was reclining on the bosom of Jesus. 24 Then Simon Peter made signs to this man, and said to him, Ask who it is of whom he speaks. 25 He, falling down on the breast of Jesus, said to him, Lord, who is it?
26 Then Jesus answered, It is he to whom I will dip and give the mouthful. Then dipping the mouthful, he took and gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot. 27 And after the mouthful, then Satan entered into him. Then Jesus said to him, What you do, do quickly.
28 No one of those reclining knew for what purpose he said this to him, 29 for some thought, since Judas had the treasure-chest, that Jesus said to him, Buy what we need for the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor. 30 He, therefore, having taken the mouthful, immediately went out; and it was night.
31 When he had gone out Jesus said, Now the Son of man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him. 32 If God has been glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself, and will immediately glorify him.
33 My little children, I am with you yet a little while. You shall seek me, and as I said to the Jews, Where I go you cannot come, I now also say to you.
34 I give you a new commandment to love another, as I have loved you that you also should love one another. 35 By this shall all know that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another.
36 Simon Peter said to him, Lord, where do you go? Jesus answered Where I go you cannot follow me now, but you shall follow afterwards.
37 Peter said to him, Lord, why can I not follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.
38 Jesus answered, Will you lay down your life for me? I tell you most truly, a cock shall not crow till you shall deny me thrice.
