10Jesus answered, "Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you."10Jesus said to him, “The one who has bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet, but is completely clean. And you are clean, but not every one of you.”10Jesus said to him, "He who has bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you."10Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.10"One who has bathed," Jesus told him, "doesn't need to wash anything except his feet, but he is completely clean. You are clean, but not all of you."
11For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.11For he knew who was to betray him; that was why he said, “Not all of you are clean.”11For He knew the one who was betraying Him; for this reason He said, "Not all of you are clean."11For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.11For He knew who would betray Him. This is why He said, "You are not all clean."
12When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. "Do you understand what I have done for you?" he asked them.12When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, “Do you understand what I have done to you?12So when He had washed their feet, and taken His garments and reclined at the table again, He said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you?12So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?12When Jesus had washed their feet and put on His robe, He reclined again and said to them, "Do you know what I have done for you?
13"You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and rightly so, for that is what I am.13You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am.13"You call Me Teacher and Lord; and you are right, for so I am.13Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.13You call Me Teacher and Lord. This is well said, for I am.
14Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet.14If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.14"If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet.14If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.14So if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet.

18"I am not referring to all of you; I know those I have chosen. But this is to fulfill this passage of Scripture: 'He who shared my bread has turned against me.'18I am not speaking of all of you; I know whom I have chosen. But the Scripture will be fulfilled, ‘He who ate my bread has lifted his heel against me.’18"I do not speak of all of you. I know the ones I have chosen; but it is that the Scripture may be fulfilled, 'HE WHO EATS MY BREAD HAS LIFTED UP HIS HEEL AGAINST ME.'18I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.18I'm not speaking about all of you; I know those I have chosen. But the Scripture must be fulfilled: The one who eats My bread has raised his heel against Me.
19"I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am who I am.19I am telling you this now, before it takes place, that when it does take place you may believe that I am he.19"From now on I am telling you before it comes to pass, so that when it does occur, you may believe that I am He.19Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.19"I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am He.
20Very truly I tell you, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me."20Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever receives the one I send receives me, and whoever receives me receives the one who sent me.”20"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who receives whomever I send receives Me; and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me."20Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.20I assure you: Whoever receives anyone I send receives Me, and the one who receives Me receives Him who sent Me."
21After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, "Very truly I tell you, one of you is going to betray me."21After saying these things, Jesus was troubled in his spirit, and testified, “Truly, truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me.”21When Jesus had said this, He became troubled in spirit, and testified and said, "Truly, truly, I say to you, that one of you will betray Me."21When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.21When Jesus had said this, He was troubled in His spirit and testified, "I assure you: One of you will betray Me!"

22His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant.22The disciples looked at one another, uncertain of whom he spoke.22The disciples began looking at one another, at a loss to know of which one He was speaking.22Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.22The disciples started looking at one another--uncertain which one He was speaking about.
23One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him.23One of his disciples, whom Jesus loved, was reclining at table at Jesus’ side,23There was reclining on Jesus' bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved.23Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.23One of His disciples, the one Jesus loved, was reclining close beside Jesus.
24Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, "Ask him which one he means."24so Simon Peter motioned to him to ask Jesus of whom he was speaking.24So Simon Peter gestured to him, and said to him, "Tell us who it is of whom He is speaking."24Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake.24Simon Peter motioned to him to find out who it was He was talking about.
25Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, "Lord, who is it?"25So that disciple, leaning back against Jesus, said to him, “Lord, who is it?”25He, leaning back thus on Jesus' bosom, said to Him, "Lord, who is it?"25He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?25So he leaned back against Jesus and asked Him, "Lord, who is it?"
26Jesus answered, "It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish." Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.26Jesus answered, “It is he to whom I will give this morsel of bread when I have dipped it.” So when he had dipped the morsel, he gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.26Jesus then answered, "That is the one for whom I shall dip the morsel and give it to him." So when He had dipped the morsel, He took and gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.26Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.26Jesus replied, "He's the one I give the piece of bread to after I have dipped it." When He had dipped the bread, He gave it to Judas, Simon Iscariot's son.

27As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him. So Jesus told him, "What you are about to do, do quickly."27Then after he had taken the morsel, Satan entered into him. Jesus said to him, “What you are going to do, do quickly.”27After the morsel, Satan then entered into him. Therefore Jesus said to him, "What you do, do quickly."27And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.27After Judas ate the piece of bread, Satan entered him. Therefore Jesus told him, "What you're doing, do quickly."
28But no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him.28Now no one at the table knew why he said this to him.28Now no one of those reclining at the table knew for what purpose He had said this to him.28Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.28None of those reclining at the table knew why He told him this.
29Since Judas had charge of the money, some thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the festival, or to give something to the poor.29Some thought that, because Judas had the moneybag, Jesus was telling him, “Buy what we need for the feast,” or that he should give something to the poor.29For some were supposing, because Judas had the money box, that Jesus was saying to him, "Buy the things we have need of for the feast"; or else, that he should give something to the poor.29For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.29Since Judas kept the money-bag, some thought that Jesus was telling him, "Buy what we need for the festival," or that he should give something to the poor.
30As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night.30So, after receiving the morsel of bread, he immediately went out. And it was night.30So after receiving the morsel he went out immediately; and it was night.30He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.30After receiving the piece of bread, he went out immediately. And it was night.

36Simon Peter asked him, "Lord, where are you going?"
