Jesus Washes the Disciples' Feet

1Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

2And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;

3Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he came from God, and went to God;

4He rose from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.

5After that he poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was girded.

6Then came he to Simon Peter: and Peter said unto him, Lord, do you wash my feet?

7Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do you know not now; but you shall know hereafter.

8Peter said unto him, You shall never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash you not, you have no part with me.

9Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.

10Jesus said to him, He that is washed needs not except to wash his feet, but is clean completely: and you are clean, but not all.

11For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, You are not all clean.

12So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was seated again, he said unto them, Know you what I have done to you?

13You call me Teacher and Lord: and you say rightly; for so I am.

14If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet; you also ought to wash one another's feet.

15For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.

16Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.

17If you know these things, happy are you if you do them.

Jesus Identifies Judas as His Betrayer

18I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me.

19Now I tell you before it comes, that, when it has come to pass, you may believe that I am he.

20Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receives whomsoever I send receives me; and he that receives me receives him that sent 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.

22Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spoke.

23Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.

24Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spoke.

25He then lying on Jesus' breast said unto him, Lord, who is it?

26Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a morsel, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the morsel, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.

27And after the morsel Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, What you do, do quickly.

28Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spoke this unto him.

29For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of for the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.

30He then having received the morsel went immediately out: and it was night.

God and the Son are Glorified

31Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.

32If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall immediately glorify him.

33Little children, yet a little while I am with you. You shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Where I go, you cannot come; so now I say to you.

34A new commandment I give unto you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.

35By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another.

Jesus Predicts Peter's Denial

36Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, where do you go? Jesus answered him, Where I go, you cannot follow me now; but you shall follow me afterwards.

37Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow you now? I will lay down my life for your sake.

38Jesus answered him, Will you lay down your life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto you, The cock shall not crow, till you have denied me three times.
