The Chief Priests And Scribes Plot To Kill Jesus

1 Now after two days was the passover, and the feast of unleavened bread; and the high priests and the scribes were seeking how, taking Him by guile, they might kill Him;

1 Now the Passover and Unleavened Bread were two days away; and the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how to seize Him by stealth and kill Him;

1 Now it was two days before the Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread. The high priests and the scribes were looking for a way to arrest Jesus secretly and to have him put to death,

2 for they said, "Not during the feast, lest there should be an uproar of the people."

2 for they were saying, "Not during the festival, otherwise there might be a riot of the people."

2 But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of the people.

2 "Not during the festival," they said, "or there may be rioting among the people."

Jesus' Anointing At Bethany

3 And, while He was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, as He was reclining at table, there came a woman having an alabaster cruse of ointment of pure spikenard, very costly; and, having broken the cruse, she was pouring it down on His bead.

3 While He was in Bethany at the home of Simon the leper, and reclining at the table, there came a woman with an alabaster vial of very costly perfume of pure nard; and she broke the vial and poured it over His head.

3 And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.

3 While He was in Bethany at the house of Simon who had a serious skin disease, as He was reclining at the table, a woman came with an alabaster jar of pure and expensive fragrant oil of nard. She broke the jar and poured it on His head.

3 While Jesus was in Bethany sitting at the table in the home of Simon the leper, a woman arrived with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume made from pure nard. She broke open the jar and poured the perfume on his head.

4 But there were some who were much displeased among themselves, saying, "To what purpose has this waste of the ointment been made?

4 But some were indignantly remarking to one another, "Why has this perfume been wasted?

4 And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made?

4 But some were expressing indignation to one another: "Why has this fragrant oil been wasted?

4 Irritated, some who were there asked one another, "Why was the perfume wasted like this?

5 For this ointment could have been sold for above three hundred denaries, and given to the poor!" And they were murmuring against her.

5 "For this perfume might have been sold for over three hundred denarii, and the money given to the poor." And they were scolding her.

5 For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her.

5 For this oil might have been sold for more than 300 denarii and given to the poor." And they began to scold her.

5 This perfume could have been sold for more than 300 denarii and the money given to the destitute." So they got extremely angry with her.

6 But Jesus said, "Let her alone; why do ye cause her trouble? She wrought a good work on Me;

6 But Jesus said, "Let her alone; why do you bother her? She has done a good deed to Me.

6 And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me.

6 Then Jesus said, "Leave her alone. Why are you bothering her? She has done a noble thing for Me.

6 But Jesus said, "Leave her alone. Why are you bothering her? She has done a beautiful thing for me,

7 for the poor ye always have with you; and whensoever ye will, ye can do them good; but Me ye have not always.

7 "For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you wish you can do good to them; but you do not always have Me.

7 For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always.

7 You always have the poor with you, and you can do good for them whenever you want, but you do not always have Me.

7 because you'll always have the destitute with you and can help them whenever you want, but you won't always have me.

8 She did what she could: she anointed My body beforehand for the burial.

8 "She has done what she could; she has anointed My body beforehand for the burial.

8 She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.

8 She has done what she could; she has anointed My body in advance for burial.

8 She has done what she could. She poured perfume on my body in preparation for my burial.

9 And verily I say to you, wheresoever the Gospel shall be preached in the whole world, that also which this woman did shall be spoken of for a memorial of her."

9 "Truly I say to you, wherever the gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be spoken of in memory of her."

9 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.

9 I assure you: Wherever the gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told in memory of her."

9 I tell all of you with certainty, wherever the gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will also be told as a memorial to her."

36 And He said, " Abba , Father! All things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me. Nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will."

36 He kept repeating, "Abba! Father! All things are possible for you. Take this cup away from me. Yet not what I want but what you want."

37 And He cometh and findeth them sleeping, and saith to Peter, "Simon, are you sleeping? were you not able to watch one hour?

37 And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?

37 Then He came and found them sleeping. "Simon, are you sleeping?" He asked Peter. "Couldn't you stay awake one hour?

37 When he went back, he found his disciples asleep. "Simon, are you asleep?" he asked Peter. "You couldn't stay awake for one hour, could you?

38 Watch, and pray, that ye enter not into temptation. The spirit, indeed, is willing, but the flesh is weak."

38 "Keep watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."

38 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.

38 Stay awake and pray so that you won't enter into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."

40 Again he came back and found them asleep, because they could not keep their eyes open. They didn't even know what they should say to him.

41 And He cometh the third time, and saith to them, "Sleep on the remaining time, and take your rest. It is enough; the hour came; behold, the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

41 And He came the third time, and said to them, "Are you still sleeping and resting? It is enough; the hour has come; behold, the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.

41 And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

The Betrayal And Arrest Of Jesus

43 And straightway, while He yet spake, comes Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a multitude with swords and clubs, from the high priests and the scribes and the elders.

43 Immediately while He was still speaking, Judas, one of the twelve, came up accompanied by a crowd with swords and clubs, who were from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.

43 And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.

44 Now he that was betraying Him gave them a signal, saying, "Whomsoever I shall kiss, This is He, take Him, and lead Him away securely."

44 Now he who was betraying Him had given them a signal, saying, "Whomever I kiss, He is the one; seize Him and lead Him away under guard."

44 And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.

44 His betrayer had given them a signal. "The One I kiss," he said, "He's the One; arrest Him and take Him away under guard."

44 Now the betrayer personally had given them a signal, saying, "The one I kiss is the man. Arrest him, and lead him safely away."

45 And, having come, going straightway to Him, he says, "Rabbi;" and kissed Him.

45 After coming, Judas immediately went to Him, saying, "Rabbi!" and kissed Him.

45 And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, master; and kissed him.

45 So when he came, he went right up to Him and said, "Rabbi!"-and kissed Him.

45 So Judas immediately went up to Jesus and said, "Rabbi," and kissed him tenderly.

46 And they laid hands on Him, and took Him.

46 They laid hands on Him and seized Him.

48 And Jesus answering, said to them, "Did ye come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs, to seize Me?

48 And Jesus said to them, "Have you come out with swords and clubs to arrest Me, as you would against a robber?

48 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me?

48 But Jesus said to them, "Have you come out with swords and clubs, as though I were a criminal, to capture Me?

48 Jesus asked them, "Have you come out with swords and clubs to arrest me as if I were a bandit?

49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye did not take Me; but this is done that the Scriptures may be fulfilled."

49 "Every day I was with you in the temple teaching, and you did not seize Me; but this has taken place to fulfill the Scriptures."

49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.

49 Every day I was among you, teaching in the temple complex, and you didn't arrest Me. But the Scriptures must be fulfilled."

49 Day after day I was with you in the Temple teaching, yet you didn't arrest me. But the Scriptures must be fulfilled."

50 And, having left Him, they all fled.

50 And they all left Him and fled.

50 And they all forsook him, and fled.

50 Then they all deserted Him and ran away.

52 but he left the linen cloth behind and ran away naked.

Jesus Before The Sanhedrin

53 And they led Jesus away to the high priest; and there come together with him all the high priests and the elders and the scribes.

53 They led Jesus away to the high priest; and all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes gathered together.

53 And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.

53 They led Jesus away to the high priest, and all the chief priests, the elders, and the scribes convened.

53 Then they took Jesus to the high priest. All the high priests, elders, and scribes had gathered together.

54 And Peter followed Him afar off, even within into the court of the high priest; and he was sitting with the attendants, and he was warming himself at the light of the fire.

54 Peter had followed Him at a distance, right into the courtyard of the high priest; and he was sitting with the officers and warming himself at the fire.

54 And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.

54 Peter followed Him at a distance, right into the high priest's courtyard. He was sitting with the temple police, warming himself by the fire.

54 Peter followed Jesus at a distance as far as the high priest's courtyard. He was sitting with the servants and warming himself at the fire.

55 And the high priests and all the Sanhedrin were seeking for testimony against Jesus, in order to put Him to death; and they were not finding it.

55 Now the chief priests and the whole Council kept trying to obtain testimony against Jesus to put Him to death, and they were not finding any.

55 And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none.

55 The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for testimony against Jesus to put Him to death, but they could find none.

55 Meanwhile, the high priests and the whole Council were looking for some testimony against Jesus in order to have him put to death, but they couldn't find any.

56 For many were bearing false testimony against Him, and their testimonies were not agreed.

56 For many were giving false testimony against Him, but their testimony was not consistent.

56 For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together.

56 For many were giving false testimony against Him, but the testimonies did not agree.

56 Although many people gave false testimony against him, their testimony didn't agree.

57 And certain ones, standing up, were bearing false testimony against Him, saying,

57 Some stood up and began to give false testimony against Him, saying,

57 And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying,

57 Some stood up and were giving false testimony against Him, stating,

57 Then some men stood up and gave false testimony against him, saying,

58 "We heard Him say, 'I will destroy this temple made with hands, and in three days I will build another made without hands.'"

58 "We heard Him say, 'I will destroy this temple made with hands, and in three days I will build another made without hands.'"

58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.

58 "We heard Him say, 'I will demolish this sanctuary made by [human] hands, and in three days I will build another not made by hands.' "

58 "We ourselves heard him say, "I will destroy this sanctuary made by human hands, and in three days I will build another one not made by human hands.'"

59 And not even so did their testimony agree.

59 Not even in this respect was their testimony consistent.

59 But neither so did their witness agree together.

59 Yet their testimony did not agree even on this.

59 But even on this point their testimony didn't agree.

60 And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, "Dost Thou answer nothing? What do these testify against Thee?"

60 The high priest stood up and came forward and questioned Jesus, saying, "Do You not answer? What is it that these men are testifying against You?"

60 And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?

60 Then the high priest stood up before them all and questioned Jesus, "Don't You have an answer to what these men are testifying against You?"

60 Then the high priest stood up before them and asked Jesus, "Don't you have any answer to what these men are testifying against you?"

61 But He was silent, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked Him, and says to Him, "Art Thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?"

61 But He kept silent and did not answer Again the high priest was questioning Him, and saying to Him, "Are You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?"

61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?

61 But He kept silent and did not answer anything. Again the high priest questioned Him, "Are You the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?"

61 But he kept silent and didn't answer at all. The high priest asked him again, "Are you the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?"

62 And Jesus said, "I am; and ye shall see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven."

62 And Jesus said, "I am; and you shall see THE SON OF MAN SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER, and COMING WITH THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN."

62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

62 "I am," said Jesus, "and all of you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Power and coming with the clouds of heaven ."

62 Jesus said, "I AM, and "you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Power' and "coming with the clouds of heaven.'"

63 And the high priest, rending his clothes, says, "What further need have we of witnesses?

63 Tearing his clothes, the high priest said, "What further need do we have of witnesses?

63 Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses?

63 Then the high priest tore his robes and said, "Why do we still need witnesses?

63 Then the high priest tore his clothes. "Why do we still need witnesses?" he asked.

64 Ye heard the blasphemy: what think ye?" And they all condemned Him to be worthy of death.

64 "You have heard the blasphemy; how does it seem to you?" And they all condemned Him to be deserving of death.

64 Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death.

64 You have heard the blasphemy! What is your decision?" And they all condemned Him to be deserving of death.

64 "You have heard his blasphemy! What is your verdict?" All of them condemned him as deserving death.

65 And some began to spit on Him, and to cover His face, and to buffet Him, and to say to Him, "Prophesy;" and the officers received Him with blows of their hands.

65 Some began to spit at Him, and to blindfold Him, and to beat Him with their fists, and to say to Him, "Prophesy!" And the officers received Him with slaps in the face.

65 And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.

65 Then some began to spit on Him, to blindfold Him, and to beat Him, saying, "Prophesy!" Even the temple police took Him and slapped Him.

65 Some of them began to spit on him. They blindfolded him and kept hitting him with their fists and telling him, "Prophesy!" Even the servants took him and slapped him around.

Peter Denies Jesus Three Times

66 And, as Peter was beneath in the court, there comes one of the maids of the high priest;

66 As Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant-girls of the high priest came,

66 And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest:

66 While Peter was in the courtyard below, one of the high priest's servants came.

66 While Peter was down in the courtyard, one of the high priest's servant girls came by.

67 and, seeing Peter warming himself, she looked at him, and says, "You also were with the Nazarene, Jesus."

67 and seeing Peter warming himself, she looked at him and said, "You also were with Jesus the Nazarene."

67 And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.

67 When she saw Peter warming himself, she looked at him and said, "You also were with that Nazarene, Jesus."

67 When she saw Peter warming himself, she glared at him and said, "You, too, were with Jesus from Nazareth."

68 But he denied, saying, "I neither know nor understand what you are saying." And he went out into the porch [and the cock crowed].

68 But he denied it, saying, "I neither know nor understand what you are talking about." And he went out onto the porch.

68 But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what thou sayest. And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew.

68 But he denied it: "I don't know or understand what you're talking about!" Then he went out to the entryway, and a rooster crowed.

68 But he denied it, saying, "I don't know or even understand what you're talking about!" Then he went out into the entryway. Just then a rooster crowed.

69 And the maid, seeing him, began again to say to those standing by, This is one of them."

69 The servant-girl saw him, and began once more to say to the bystanders, "This is one of them!"

69 And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.

69 When the servant saw him again she began to tell those standing nearby, "This man is one of them!"

69 The servant girl saw him and again told those who were standing around, "This man is one of them!"

70 But he again denied. And, after a little while, those who stood by said to Peter, "Of a truth you are one of them; for you are a Galilaean."

70 But again he denied it And after a little while the bystanders were again saying to Peter, "Surely you are one of them, for you are a Galilean too."

70 And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art one of them: for thou art a Galilaean, and thy speech agreeth thereto.

70 But again he denied it. After a little while those standing there said to Peter again, "You certainly are one of them, since you're also a Galilean!"

70 Again he denied it. After a little while, the people who were standing there began to say to Peter again, "Obviously you're one of them, because you are a Galilean!"

71 But he began to curse, and to swear, "I know not This Man of Whom ye speak."

71 But he began to curse and swear, "I do not know this man you are talking about!"

71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak.

71 Then he started to curse and to swear with an oath, "I don't know this man you're talking about!"

71 Then he began to invoke a divine curse and to swear with an oath, "I don't know this man you're talking about!"

72 And straightway the second time the cock crowed. And Peter remembered the word, how Jesus said to him, "Before the cock crows twice, you will deny Me thrice." And, having thought thereon, he kept weeping.

72 Immediately a rooster crowed a second time. And Peter remembered how Jesus had made the remark to him, "Before a rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times." And he began to weep.

72 And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.

72 Immediately a rooster crowed a second time, and Peter remembered when Jesus had spoken the word to him, "Before the rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times." When he thought about it, he began to weep.

72 Just then a rooster crowed a second time. Peter remembered that Jesus told him, "Before a rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times." Then he broke down and cried.
