World English Bible
During supper, the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him,
Young's Literal Translation
And supper being come, the devil already having put it into the heart of Judas of Simon, Iscariot, that he may deliver him up,
John 13:2 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Supper being ended - This translation expresses too much. The original means while they were at supper; and that this is the meaning is clear from the fact that we find them still eating after this. The Arabic and Persic translations give it this meaning. The Latin Vulgate renders it like the English.
The devil - The leader or prince of evil spirits.
Having now put it into the heart - Literally, having cast it into the heart. Compare Ephesians 6:16; "The fiery darts of the wicked." See Acts 5:3; Luke 22:3. The meaning of this passage is that Satan inclined the mind of Judas to do this, or he tempted him to betray his Master. We know not precisely how this was done, but we know that it was by means of his avarice. Satan could tempt no one unless there was some inclination of the mind, some natural or depraved propensity that he could make use of. He presents objects in alluring forms fitted to that propensity, and under the influence of a strong or a corrupt inclination the soul yields to sin. In the case of Judas it was the love of money; and it was necessary to present to him only the possibility of obtaining money, and it found him ready for any crime.

Consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against …

Simon the Zealot, and Judas Iscariot, the one who betrayed Him.
And Satan entered into Judas who was called Iscariot, belonging to the number of the twelve.
Jesus answered them, "Did I Myself not choose you, the twelve, and yet one of you is a devil?"
Now He meant Judas the son of Simon Iscariot, for he, one of the twelve, was going to betray Him.
For He knew the one who was betraying Him; for this reason He said, "Not all of you are clean."
After the morsel, Satan then entered into him. Therefore Jesus said to him, "What you do, do quickly."
But Peter said, "Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back some of the price of the land?
