Luke 22
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And the Celebration of the Unleavened [Bread] was coming near, that is called Passover, 2and the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how they may take Him up, for they were afraid of the people.

3And Satan entered into Judas, who is surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the Twelve, 4and he, having gone away, spoke with the chief priests and the magistrates, how he might deliver Him up to them, 5and they rejoiced, and covenanted to give him money, 6and he agreed, and was seeking a favorable season to deliver Him up to them without tumult.

7And the day of the Unleavened [Bread] came, in which it was necessary [for] the Passover to be sacrificed, 8and He sent Peter and John, saying, “Having gone on, prepare to us the Passover, that we may eat”; 9and they said to Him, “Where do You will that we might prepare?” 10And He said to them, “Behold, in your entering into the city, a man will meet you there, carrying a pitcher of water, follow him into the house where he goes in, 11and you will say to the master of the house, The Teacher says to you, Where is the guest-chamber where I may eat the Passover with My disciples? 12And he will show you a large upper room furnished, make ready there”; 13and they, having gone away, found as He has said to them, and they made the Passover ready.

14And when the hour was come, He reclined, and the twelve apostles with Him, 15and He said to them, “With desire I desired to eat this Passover with you before My suffering, 16for I say to you that I may eat of it no longer until it may be fulfilled in the Kingdom of God.” 17And having taken a cup, having given thanks, He said, “Take this and divide to yourselves, 18for I say to you that I may not drink of the produce of the vine until the Kingdom of God may come.” 19And having taken bread, having given thanks, He broke and gave to them, saying, “This is My body, that is being given for you, do this in remembrance of Me.” 20In like manner, also, the cup after the dining, saying, “This cup [is] the New Covenant in My blood, that is being poured forth for you. 21But behold, the hand of him delivering Me up [is] with Me on the table, 22and, indeed, the Son of Man goes according to what has been determined; but woe to that man through whom He is being delivered up.” 23And they began to reason among themselves who then of them it may be who is about to do this thing.

24And there happened also a strife among them—who of them is accounted to be greater. 25And He said to them, “The kings of the nations exercise lordship over them, and those exercising authority on them are called benefactors; 26but you [are] not so, but he who is greater among you—let him be as the younger; and he who is leading, as he who is ministering; 27for who is greater? He who is reclining, or he who is ministering? Is it not he who is reclining? And I am in your midst as He who is ministering.

28And you are those who have remained with Me in My temptations, 29and I appoint to you a kingdom, as My Father appointed to Me, 30that you may eat and may drink at My table, in My kingdom, and may sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”

31And the LORD said, “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan asked for himself to sift you as the wheat, 32and I implored for you that your faith may not fail; and you, when you turned, strengthen your brothers.” 33And he said to Him, “Lord, I am ready to go with You both to prison and to death”; 34and He said, “I say to you, Peter, a rooster will not crow today, before you may disown knowing Me three times.”

35And He said to them, “When I sent you without bag, and leather pouch, and sandals, did you lack anything?” And they said, “Nothing.” 36Then He said to them, “But now, he who is having a bag, let him take [it] up, and in like manner also a leather pouch; and he who is not having, let him sell his garment, and buy a sword, 37for I say to you that this which has been written is necessary to be accomplished in Me: And He was reckoned with lawless ones; for also the things concerning Me have an end.” 38And they said, “Lord, behold, here [are] two swords”; and He said to them, “It is sufficient.”

39And having gone forth, He went on, according to custom, to the Mount of Olives, and His disciples also followed Him, 40and having come to the place, He said to them, “Pray to not enter into temptation.” 41And He was withdrawn from them, as it were a stone’s cast, and having fallen on the knees He was praying, 42saying, “Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me, but not My will, but Yours be done.” 43And there appeared to Him a messenger from Heaven strengthening Him; 44and having been in agony, He was more earnestly praying, and His sweat became, as it were, great drops of blood falling on the ground. 45And having risen up from the prayer, having come to the disciples, He found them sleeping from the sorrow, 46and He said to them, “Why do you sleep? Having risen, pray that you may not enter into temptation.”

47And while He is speaking, behold, a multitude, and he who is called Judas, one of the Twelve, was coming before them, and he came near to Jesus to kiss Him, 48and Jesus said to him, “Judas, do you deliver up the Son of Man with a kiss?” 49And those around Him, having seen what was about to be, said to Him, “Lord, will we strike with a sword?” 50And a certain one of them struck the servant of the chief priest, and took off his right ear, 51and Jesus answering said, “Permit thus far,” and having touched his ear, He healed him. 52And Jesus said to those having come on Him—chief priests, and magistrates of the temple, and elders, “Have you come forth with swords and sticks as on a robber? 53While daily I was with you in the temple, you stretched forth no hands against Me; but this is your hour and the power of the darkness.”

54And having taken Him, they led and brought Him into the house of the chief priest. And Peter was following far off, 55and they having kindled a fire in the midst of the court, and having sat down together, Peter was sitting in the midst of them, 56and a certain maid having seen him sitting at the light, and having earnestly looked at him, she said, “And this one was with Him!” 57And he disowned Him, saying, “Woman, I have not known Him.” 58And after a while, another having seen him, said, “And you are of them!” And Peter said, “Man, I am not.” 59And one hour, as it were, having intervened, a certain other was confidently affirming, saying, “Of a truth this one also was with Him, for he is also a Galilean”; 60and Peter said, “Man, I have not known what you say”; and immediately, while he is speaking, a rooster crowed. 61And the LORD, having turned, looked on Peter, and Peter remembered the word of the LORD, how He said to him, “Before a rooster will crow, you may disown Me three times”; 62and Peter having gone outside, wept bitterly.

63And the men who were holding Jesus were mocking Him, beating [Him]; 64and having blindfolded Him, they were striking Him on the face, and were questioning Him, saying, “Prophesy who he is who struck You?” 65And many other things, slandering, they spoke in regard to Him.

66And when it became day there was gathered together the eldership of the people, chief priests also, and scribes, and they led Him up to their own Sanhedrin, 67saying, “If You are the Christ, tell us.” And He said to them, “If I may tell you, you will not believe; 68and if I also question [you], you will not answer Me or send Me away; 69from now on, there will be the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of the power of God.” 70And they all said, “You, then, are the Son of God?” And He said to them, “You say [it], because I AM”; 71and they said, “What need do we have yet of testimony? For we ourselves heard [it] from His mouth.”
