14 When the hour had come, He reclined at the table, and the apostles with Him.

14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.

14 When(P) the hour came, He reclined at the table, and the apostles with Him.

15 And He said to them, "I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer;

15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

15 Then He said to them, “I have fervently desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.

15 He told them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover meal with you before I suffer,

16 For I say unto you, that I will not eat any more at all of it until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

16 for I say to you, I shall never again eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God."

16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

16 For I tell you, I will not eat it again(b) until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”(Q)

16 because I tell all of you, I will never eat it again until it finds its fulfillment in the kingdom of God."

17 And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He said, "Take this and share it among yourselves;

17 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:

17 Then He took a cup,(R) and after giving thanks,(S) He said, “Take this and share it among yourselves.

17 Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and said, "Take this and share it among yourselves,

18 For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.

A Final Discourse

21 Moreover, behold, the hand of him that delivers me up is with me on the table;

21 "But behold, the hand of the one betraying Me is with Mine on the table.

21 But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.

21 But(X) look, the hand of the one betraying Me is at the table with Me!(Y)

21 Yet look! The hand of the man who is betraying me is with me on the table!

22 and the Son of man indeed goes as it is determined, but woe unto that man by whom he is delivered up.

22 "For indeed, the Son of Man is going as it has been determined; but woe to that man by whom He is betrayed!"

22 And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed!

22 For the Son of Man will go away as it has been determined,(Z) but woe to that man by whom He is betrayed!”

22 The Son of Man is going away, just as it has been determined, but how terrible it will be for that man by whom he is betrayed!"

23 And they began to question together among themselves who then it could be of them who was about to do this.

23 And they began to discuss among themselves which one of them it might be who was going to do this thing.

23 And they began to inquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing.

23 So they began to argue(AA) among themselves which of them it could be who was going to do this thing.

23 Then they began to discuss among themselves which one of them was going to do this.

A Dispute About Who Is Greatest

24 And there was also a strife among them which of them should be held to be the greatest.

24 And there arose also a dispute among them as to which one of them was regarded to be greatest.

24 And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.

24 Then a dispute also arose among them about who should be considered the greatest.(AB)

24 Now an argument sprang up among them as to which one of them was to be regarded as the greatest.

25 And he said to them, The kings of the nations rule over them, and they that exercise authority over them are called benefactors.

25 And He said to them, "The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who have authority over them are called 'Benefactors.'

25 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.

25 But He said to them,(AC)“The kings of the Gentiles dominate them, and those who have authority over them are called(d) ‘Benefactors.’(e)

25 But he told them, "The kings of the unbelievers lord it over them, and those who exercise authority over them are called benefactors.

26 But ye shall not be thus; but let the greater among you be as the younger, and the leader as he that serves.

26 "But it is not this way with you, but the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant.

26 But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.

26 But it must not be like that among you. On the contrary, whoever is greatest among you must become like the youngest,(AD) and whoever leads, like the one serving.

26 But you are not to do so. On the contrary, the greatest among you should become like the youngest, and the one who leads should become like the one who serves.

27 For which is greater, he that is at table or he that serves? Is not he that is at table? But I am in the midst of you as the one that serves.

27 "For who is greater, the one who reclines at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who reclines at the table? But I am among you as the one who serves.

27 For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.

27 For who is greater, the one at the table or the one serving? Isn’t it the one at the table? But I am among you as the One who serves.(AE)

27 Because who is greater, the one who sits at the table, or the one who serves? It is the one at the table, isn't it? But I'm among you as one who serves.

28 But ye are they who have persevered with me in my temptations.

28 "You are those who have stood by Me in My trials;

28 Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations.

28 You are the ones who stood by Me in My trials.(AF)

28 "You are the ones who have always stood by me in my trials.

29 And I appoint unto you, as my Father has appointed unto me, a kingdom,

29 and just as My Father has granted Me a kingdom, I grant you

29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;

29 I bestow on you a kingdom,(AG) just as My Father bestowed one on Me,

29 And I confer a kingdom on you, just as my Father has conferred a kingdom on me,

30 that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

30 that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and you will sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

30 That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

30 so that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom.(AH) And you will sit on thrones judging the 12 tribes of Israel.(AI)

30 so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit down on thrones to govern the twelve tribes of Israel."

Jesus Predicts Peter's Denial

31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded to have you, to sift you as wheat;

31 "Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded permission to sift you like wheat;

31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

31 “Simon, Simon,(f) look out! Satan(AJ) has asked to sift you(g) like wheat.(AK)

31 "Simon, Simon, listen! Satan has asked permission to sift all of you like wheat,

32 but I have besought for thee that thy faith fail not; and thou, when once thou hast been restored, confirm thy brethren.

32 but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers."

32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

32 But I have prayed(AL) for you(h) that your faith may not fail. And you, when you have turned back, strengthen(AM) your brothers.”

32 but I have prayed for you that your own faith may not fail. When you have come back, you must strengthen your brothers."

33 And he said to him, Lord, with thee I am ready to go both to prison and to death.

33 But he said to Him, "Lord, with You I am ready to go both to prison and to death!"

33 And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.

33 “Lord,”(AN) he told Him, “I’m ready to go with You both to prison and to death!”

33 Peter told him, "Lord, I am ready to go even to prison and to die with you!"

34 And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow to-day before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.

34 And He said, "I say to you, Peter, the rooster will not crow today until you have denied three times that you know Me."

34 And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.

34 “I tell you, Peter,” He said, “the rooster will not crow today until(i) you deny three times that you know Me!”

34 But Jesus said, "I tell you, Peter, the rooster will not crow today until you deny three times that you know me."

The Two Swords

35 And he said to them, When I sent you without purse and scrip and sandals, did ye lack anything? And they said, Nothing.

35 And He said to them, "When I sent you out without money belt and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?" They said, "No, nothing."

35 And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.

35 He also said to them, “When I sent you out(AO) without money-bag, traveling bag, or sandals, did you lack anything?”“Not a thing,” they said.

35 Then Jesus asked his disciples, "When I sent you out without a wallet, traveling bag, or sandals, you didn't lack anything, did you?" They replied, "Nothing at all."

36 He said therefore to them, But now he that has a purse let him take it, in like manner also a scrip, and he that has none let him sell his garment and buy a sword;

36 And He said to them, "But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one.

36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

36 Then He said to them, “But now, whoever has a money-bag should take it, and also a traveling bag. And whoever doesn’t have a sword should sell his robe and buy one.

36 Then he told them, "But now whoever has a wallet must take it along, and his traveling bag, too. And the one who has no sword must sell his coat and buy one.

37 for I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned with the lawless: for also the things concerning me have an end.

37 "For I tell you that this which is written must be fulfilled in Me, 'AND HE WAS NUMBERED WITH TRANSGRESSORS'; for that which refers to Me has its fulfillment."

37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.

37 For I tell you, what is written must be fulfilled in Me: And He was counted among the outlaws.(AP)(j)Yes, what is written about Me is coming to its fulfillment.”(AQ)

37 Because I tell you, what has been written about me must be fulfilled: "He was counted among the criminals.' Indeed, what is written about me must be fulfilled."

38 And they said, Lord, behold here are two swords. And he said to them, It is enough.

38 They said, "Lord, look, here are two swords." And He said to them, "It is enough."

38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.

38 “Lord,” they said, “look, here are two swords.”“Enough of that!”(k) He told them.

38 So they said, "Lord, look! Here are two swords." He answered them, "Enough of that!"

42 saying, "Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done."

42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

42 “Father, if You are willing, take this cup(AX) away from Me—nevertheless, not My will, but Yours, be done.”

42 "Father, if you are willing, take this cup away from me. Yet not my will but yours be done."

The Betrayal And Arrest Of Jesus

47 As he was yet speaking, behold, a crowd, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went on before them, and drew near to Jesus to kiss him.

47 While He was still speaking, behold, a crowd came, and the one called Judas, one of the twelve, was preceding them; and he approached Jesus to kiss Him.

47 And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.

55 After they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter was sitting among them.

55 And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them.

55 They(BF) lit a fire in the middle of the courtyard(BG) and sat down together, and Peter sat among them.

55 When they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and had taken their seats, Peter, too, sat down among them.

56 And a certain maid, having seen him sitting by the light, and having fixed her eyes upon him, said, And this man was with him.

56 And a servant-girl, seeing him as he sat in the firelight and looking intently at him, said, "This man was with Him too."

56 But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.

56 When a servant saw him sitting in the firelight, and looked closely at him, she said, “This man was with Him too.”

56 A servant girl saw him sitting by the fire, stared at him, and said, "This man was with him, too."

57 But he denied him, saying, Woman, I do not know him.

57 But he denied it, saying, "Woman, I do not know Him."

57 And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.

57 But he denied it: “Woman, I don’t know Him!”

57 But he denied it, "I don't know him, woman!" he responded.

58 And after a short time another seeing him said, And thou art of them. But Peter said, Man, I am not.

58 A little later, another saw him and said, "You are one of them too!" But Peter said, "Man, I am not!"

58 And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.

58 After a little while, someone else saw him and said, “You’re one of them too!”“Man, I am not!” Peter said.

58 A little later, a man looked at him and said, "You are one of them, too." But Peter said, "Mister, I am not!"

59 And after the lapse of about one hour another stoutly maintained it, saying, In truth this man also was with him, for also he is a Galilaean.

59 After about an hour had passed, another man began to insist, saying, "Certainly this man also was with Him, for he is a Galilean too."

59 And about the space of one hour after another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is a Galilaean.

59 About an hour later, another kept insisting, “This man was certainly with Him, since he’s also a Galilean.”

59 About an hour later, another man emphatically asserted, "This man was certainly with him, because he is a Galilean!"

60 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he was yet speaking, the cock crew.

60 But Peter said, "Man, I do not know what you are talking about." Immediately, while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed.

60 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.

60 But Peter said, “Man, I don’t know what you’re talking about!” Immediately, while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed.

60 But Peter said, "Mister, I don't know what you're talking about!" Just then, while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed.

61 And the Lord, turning round, looked at Peter; and Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he said to him, Before the cock crow thou shalt deny me thrice.

61 The Lord turned and looked at Peter And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had told him, "Before a rooster crows today, you will deny Me three times."

61 And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

61 Then the Lord turned and looked at Peter.(BH) So Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had said to him, “Before the rooster crows today, you will deny Me three times.”(BI)

61 Then the Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. And Peter remembered the word from the Lord, and how he had told him, "Before a rooster crows today, you will deny me three times."

62 And Peter, going forth without, wept bitterly.

62 And he went out and wept bitterly.

62 And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.

62 And he went outside and wept bitterly.

62 So he went outside and cried bitterly.

64 and they blindfolded Him and were asking Him, saying, "Prophesy, who is the one who hit You?"

66 As soon as day came, the elders of the people, the high priests, and the scribes assembled and brought him before their Council.

67 If thou art the Christ, tell us. And he said to them, If I tell you, ye will not at all believe;

67 "If You are the Christ, tell us." But He said to them, "If I tell you, you will not believe;

67 Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:

67 They said,(BO) “If You are the Messiah, tell us.”But He said to them, “If I do tell you, you will not believe.

67 They said, "If you are the Messiah, tell us."

68 and if I should ask you, ye would not answer me at all, nor let me go;

68 and if I ask a question, you will not answer.

68 And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.

68 And if I ask you, you will not answer.

68 But he told them, "If I tell you, you won't believe me, and if I ask you a question, you won't answer me.

69 but henceforth shall the Son of man be sitting on the right hand of the power of God.

69 "But from now on THE SON OF MAN WILL BE SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND of the power OF GOD."

69 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.

69 But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the Power of God.”(BP)

69 But from now on the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God."

70 And they all said, Thou then art the Son of God? And he said to them, Ye say that I am.

70 And they all said, "Are You the Son of God, then?" And He said to them, "Yes, I am."

70 Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.

70 They all asked, “Are You, then, the Son of God?”(BQ)And He said to them, “You say that I am.”(BR)

70 Then they all asked, "Are you, then, the Son of God?" He answered them, "You said it I AM."

71 And they said, What need have we any more of witness, for we have heard ourselves out of his mouth?

71 Then they said, "What further need do we have of testimony? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth."

71 And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.

71 “Why do we need any more testimony,” they said, “since we’ve heard it ourselves from His mouth?”

71 "Why do we need any more testimony?" they asked. "We have heard it ourselves from his own mouth!"
