26:10 But when Jesus was aware of it, He said to them, "Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a good work for Me.

26:11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.

26:12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did [it] for my burial.
26:12 "For in pouring this fragrant oil on My body, she did it for My burial.

26:34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
26:34 Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you that this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times."

26:35 Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.
26:35 Peter said to Him, "Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!" And so said all the disciples.

26:36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.
26:36 Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples, "Sit here while I go and pray over there."

26:37 And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed.

26:38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
26:38 Then He said to them, "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me."

26:39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou [wilt].
26:39 He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, "O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will."

26:40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
26:40 Then He came to the disciples and found them asleep, and said to Peter, "What? Could you not watch with Me one hour?

26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed [is] willing, but the flesh [is] weak.
26:41 "Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."

26:45 Then He came to His disciples and said to them, "Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.

26:48 Now His betrayer had given them a sign, saying, "Whomever I kiss, He is the One; seize Him."

26:49 And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.
26:49 Immediately he went up to Jesus and said, "Greetings, Rabbi!" and kissed Him.

26:50 And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.
26:50 But Jesus said to him, "Friend, why have you come?" Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and took Him.

26:51 And suddenly, one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his sword, struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.

26:52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.
26:52 But Jesus said to him, "Put your sword in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword.

26:53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
26:53 "Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels?

26:54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?
26:54 "How then could the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must happen thus?"

26:55 In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.
26:55 In that hour Jesus said to the multitudes, "Have you come out, as against a robber, with swords and clubs to take Me? I sat daily with you, teaching in the temple, and you did not seize Me.

26:56 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.

26:58 But Peter followed Him at a distance to the high priest's courtyard. And he went in and sat with the servants to see the end.

26:59 Now the chief priests, the elders, and all the council sought false testimony against Jesus to put Him to death,

26:60 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, [yet] found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,
26:60 but found none. Even though many false witnesses came forward, they found none. But at last two false witnesses came forward

26:61 And said, This [fellow] said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.
26:61 and said, "This fellow said, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God and to build it in three days.'"

26:62 And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what [is it which] these witness against thee?
26:62 And the high priest arose and said to Him, "Do You answer nothing? What is it these men testify against You?"

26:63 But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.
26:63 But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest answered and said to Him, "I put You under oath by the living God: Tell us if You are the Christ, the Son of God!"

26:64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
26:64 Jesus said to him, "It is as you said. Nevertheless, I say to you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven."

26:65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.
26:65 Then the high priest tore his clothes, saying, "He has spoken blasphemy! What further need do we have of witnesses? Look, now you have heard His blasphemy!

26:66 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.
26:66 "What do you think?" They answered and said, "He is deserving of death."

26:67 Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote [him] with the palms of their hands,
26:67 Then they spat in His face and beat Him; and others struck Him with the palms of their hands,

26:68 Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?
26:68 saying, "Prophesy to us, Christ! Who is the one who struck You?"

26:69 Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.
26:69 Now Peter sat outside in the courtyard. And a servant girl came to him, saying, "You also were with Jesus of Galilee."

26:70 But he denied before [them] all, saying, I know not what thou sayest.
26:70 But he denied it before them all, saying, "I do not know what you are saying."

26:71 And when he was gone out into the porch, another [maid] saw him, and said unto them that were there, This [fellow] was also with Jesus of Nazareth.
26:71 And when he had gone out to the gateway, another girl saw him and said to those who were there, "This fellow also was with Jesus of Nazareth."

26:72 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.
26:72 But again he denied with an oath, "I do not know the Man!"

26:73 And after a while came unto [him] they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art [one] of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee.
26:73 And a little later those who stood by came up and said to Peter, "Surely you also are one of them, for your speech betrays you."

26:74 Then began he to curse and to swear, [saying], I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.
26:74 Then he began to curse and swear, saying, "I do not know the Man!" Immediately a rooster crowed.

26:75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.
26:75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus who had said to him, "Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times." So he went out and wept bitterly.
