Berean Literal Bible
Jesus Washes His Disciples' Feet
1Now before the feast of the Passover, Jesus, knowing that His hour had come that He would depart out of this world to the Father, having loved the own who were in the world, He loved them to the end. 2And supper taking place, the devil already having put into the heart of Judas son of Simon Iscariot that he should betray Him, 3knowing that the Father has given Him all things into the hands, and that He came forth from God and He is going to God, 4He rises from the supper and lays aside the garments. And having taken a towel, He girded Himself. 5After that, He pours water into the basin, and He began to wash the feet of the disciples and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.
6Then He comes to Simon Peter, who says to Him, “Lord, do You wash my feet?”
7Jesus answered and said to him, “What I do, you do not know presently, but you will know after these things.”
8Peter says to Him, “Never shall You wash my feet, to the age.”
Jesus answered him, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with Me.”
9Simon Peter says to Him, “Lord, not my feet only, but also the hands and the head.”
10Jesus says to him, “The one having been bathed has no need to wash, except the feet, but is wholly clean. And you all are clean, but not all.” 11For He knew the one who was betraying Him; on account of this He said, “You are not all clean.”
12Therefore when He had washed their feet and taken His garments, and having reclined again, He said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? 13You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say rightly, for so I am. 14Therefore if I, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash the feet of one another. 15For I gave you a pattern, that as I did to you, you also should do. 16Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor a messenger greater than the one having sent him. 17If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them.
Jesus Predicts His Betrayal
18I speak not about all of you. I know whom I chose; but it is that the Scripture may be fulfilled: ‘The one eating My bread has lifted up his heel against Me.’a 19I am telling you from this time, before it comes to pass, so that when it comes to pass you should believe that I am He. 20Truly, truly, I say to you, the one receiving whomever I shall send, receives Me; and the one receiving Me, receives the One having sent Me.”
21Having said these things, Jesus was troubled in spirit, and He testified and said, “Truly, truly, I say to you that one of you will betray Me.”
22The disciples began to look upon one another, being uncertain of whom He is speaking. 23There was reclining one of His disciples whom Jesus loved in the bosom of Jesus. 24Therefore Simon Peter motions to him, to ask who it is about whom He is speaking? 25Then he thus having leaned on the breast of Jesus, says to Him, “Lord, who is it?”
26Then Jesus answers, “It is he to whom I will dip the morsel and will give him.” Then having dipped the morsel, He takes it and gives it to Judas, son of Simon Iscariot. 27And after the morsel, then Satan entered into him.
Therefore Jesus says to him, “What you do, do quickly.” 28Now none of those reclining knew why He spoke this to him. 29For some were thinking, since Judas had the money bag, that Jesus is saying to him, “Buy what things we have need of for the feast,” or that he should give something to the poor. 30Therefore having received the morsel, he went out immediately. And it was night.
Love one another
31Therefore when he had gone out, Jesus says, “Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in Him. 32If God is glorified in Him, God also will glorify Him in Himself, and will glorify Him immediately.
33Little children, yet a little while I am with you. You will seek Me, and as I said to the Jews, now I say also to you: ‘Where I go, you are not able to come.’
34A new commandment I give to you, that you should love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. 35By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love among one another.”
Jesus Predicts Peter's Denial
36Simon Peter says to Him, “Lord, where are You going?”
Jesus answered him, “Where I go, you are not able to follow Me now, but you will follow afterward.”
37Peter says to Him, “Lord, why am I not able to follow You presently? I will lay down my life for You.”a 18 Psalm 41:9
