1 Now, before the feast of the passover, Jesus, knowing that His hour came that He should depart out of this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end.
2 And, supper being in progress, the Devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray Him, 3 knowing that the Father gave all things into His hands, and that He came forth from God, and was going to God, 4 He riseth from the supper, and layeth aside His garments; and, taking a towel, He girded Himself. 5 Then He poureth water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.
6 He cometh, therefore, to Simon Peter. He says to Him, "Lord, dost Thou wash my feet?"
7 Jesus answered, and said to him, "What I am doing you know not now; but you shall know hereafter."
8 Peter says to Him, "Thou shalt never wash my feet!" Jesus answered him, "If I wash you not, you have no part with Me."
9 Simon Peter says to Him, "Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head."
10 Jesus saith to him, "He who has bathed has no need, except to wash his feet, but is wholly clean; and ye are clean, but not all;" 11 for He knew him who would betray Him; on this account, He said, "Ye are not all clean."
12 When, therefore, He washed their feet, and took His garments, and reclined again, He said to them, "Do ye know what I have done to you? 13 Ye call Me 'The Teacher,' and 'The Lord;' and ye say well; for so I am. 14 If, therefore, I, 'The Lord,' and 'The Teacher,' washed your feet, ye also ought to wash one another's feet; 15 for I gave you an example, that, as I did to you, ye also should do.
16 Verily, verily, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his lord, nor one who is sent greater than he who sent him. 17 If ye know these things, happy are ye, if ye do them. 18 I speak not concerning all of you: I know whom I chose; but, that the Scripture may be fulfilled, 'He that eats My bread lifted up his heel against Me.'
19 From this time, I tell you before it comes to pass; that, when it comes to pass, ye may believe that I am He. 20 Verily, verily, I say to you, he who receives whomsoever I send receives Me; and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me."
21 Having said these things, Jesus was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, "Verily, verily, I say to you, that one of you will betray Me."
22 The disciples were looking one on another, doubting about whom He was speaking. 23 There was at the table reclining in Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved. 24 Simon Peter, therefore, beckons to this one, and says to him, "Tell us who it is about whom He is speaking." 25 He, leaning back as he was on the breast of Jesus, says to Him, "Lord, who is it?"
26 Jesus, therefore, answereth, "He it is for whom I shall dip the morsel, and give it to him." Having, therefore, dipped the morsel, He taketh and giveth it to Judas, son of Simon Iscariot. 27 And after the morsel, then Satan entered into him. Jesus, therefore, saith to him, "What you do, do quickly."
28 And no one of those reclining knew for what purpose He spake this to him; 29 for some thought, because Judas had the money-bag, 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 received the morsel, went out straightway; and it was night.
31 When, therefore, he went out, Jesus saith, "Now was the Son of Man glorified, and God was glorified in Him. 32 And God will glorify Him in Himself, and will straightway glorify Him.
33 Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye will seek Me; and, as I said to the Jews, 'Whither I go ye cannot come;' so now I say to you.
34 A new commandment I give to you, that ye love one another; even as I loved you, that ye love one another. 35 By this shall all know that ye are My disciples, if ye have love one to another."
36 Simon Peter says to Him, "Lord, where art Thou going?" Jesus answered, "Where I go, you cannot follow Me now; but you will follow Me later."
37 Peter says to Him, "Why can I not follow Thee even now? I will lay down my soul for Thee."
38 Jesus answered, "Will you lay down your soul for Me? Verily, verily, I say to you, a cock shall not crow, till you thrice deny Me."
