John 13
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And before the Celebration of the Passover, Jesus knowing that His hour has come, that He may depart out of this world to the Father, having loved His own who [are] in the world—to the end He loved them. 2And dinner having come, the Devil already having put [it] into the heart of Judas of Simon, Iscariot, that he may deliver Him up, 3Jesus knowing that all things the Father has given to Him—into [His] hands, and that He came forth from God, and He goes to God, 4rises from the dinner, and lays down His garments, and having taken a towel, He girded Himself;

5afterward He puts water into the basin, and began to wash the feet of His disciples, and to wipe with the towel with which He was being girded. 6He comes, therefore, to Simon Peter, and that one says to Him, “Lord, You—do You wash my feet?” 7Jesus answered and said to him, “That which I do you have not known now, but you will know after these things”; 8Peter says to Him, “You may not wash my feet—throughout the age.” Jesus answered him, “If I may not 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, “He who has been bathed has no need except to wash his feet, but he is clean altogether; and you are clean, but not all”; 11for He knew him who is delivering Him up; because of this He said, “You are not all clean.”

12When, therefore, He washed their feet, and took His garments, having reclined again, He said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? 13You call Me the Teacher and the LORD, and you say well, for I am; 14if then I washed your feet—the LORD and the Teacher—you also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15For I gave to you an example, that, according as I did to you, you also may do; 16truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his lord, nor an apostle greater than he who sent him; 17if you have known these things, you are blessed if you may do them;

18I do not speak concerning you all; I have known whom I chose for Myself; but that the Writing may be fulfilled: He who is eating the bread with Me, lifted up his heel against Me. 19From this time I tell you, before its coming to pass, that, when it may come to pass, you may believe that I AM; 20truly, truly, I say to you, he who is receiving whomsoever I may send, receives Me; and he who is receiving Me, receives Him who sent Me.”

21Having said these things, Jesus was troubled in the spirit, and testified and said, “Truly, truly, I say to you that one of you will deliver Me up”; 22the disciples were looking, therefore, at one another, doubting concerning of whom He speaks. 23And there was one of His disciples reclining in the bosom of Jesus, whom Jesus was loving; 24Simon Peter, then, beckons to this one, to inquire who he may be concerning whom He speaks, 25and that one having leaned back on the breast of Jesus, responds to Him, “Lord, who is it?” 26Jesus answers, “It is that one to whom I, having dipped the morsel, will give it”; and having dipped the morsel, He gives [it] to Judas of Simon, Iscariot. 27And after the morsel, then Satan entered into that one. Jesus, therefore, says to him, “What you do—do quickly”; 28and none of those reclining to eat knew for what intent He said this to him, 29for certain [of them] were thinking, since Judas had the bag, that Jesus says to him, “Buy what we have need of for the celebration”; or that he may give something to the poor; 30having received, therefore, the morsel, that one immediately went forth, and it was night.

31When, therefore, he went forth, Jesus says, “Now was the Son of Man glorified, and God was glorified in Him; 32if God was glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself; indeed, He will immediately glorify Him. 33Little children, yet a little [while] am I with you; you will seek Me, and according as I said to the Jews, I also say to you now: To where I go away, you are not able to come. 34A new command I give to you, that you love one another; according as I loved you, that you also love one another; 35in this will all know that you are My disciples, if you may have love one to another.”

36Simon Peter says to Him, “Lord, to where do You go away?” Jesus answered him, “To where I go away, you are not able now to follow Me, but afterward you will follow Me.” 37Peter says to Him, “Lord, why am I not able to follow You now? I will lay down my life for You”; 38Jesus answered him, “You will lay down your life for Me? Truly, truly, I say to you, a rooster will not crow until you may deny Me three times.”
