Peter Denies Jesus Three Times
69 Now Peter sat outside in the courtyard: and a maidservant came unto him, saying, You also were with Jesus of Galilee.
70 But he denied it before them all, saying, I know not what you say.
71 And when he was gone out into the porch, another maidservant saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth.
72 And again he denied it with an oath, I do not know the man.
73 And after awhile came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely you also are one of them; for your speech betrays you.
74 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crowed. 75 And Peter remembered the words of Jesus, who said unto him, Before the cock crows, you shall deny me three times. And he went out, and wept bitterly.
66 And as Peter was below in the courtyard, there came one of the maidservants of the high priest: 67 And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And you also were with Jesus of Nazareth.
68 But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what you say. And he went out into the porch; and the cock crowed.
69 And the maidservant saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.
70 And he denied it again. And after a little, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely you are one of them: for you are a Galilean, and your speech agrees with it.
71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom you speak.
72 And the second time the cock crowed. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crows twice, you shall deny me three times. And when he thought on this, he wept.
