42Again, a second time, he went away and prayed, "My Father, if this cannot pass unless I drink it, your will be done."42He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
43And he came again and found them sleeping, because they could not keep their eyes open.43And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.
44After leaving them, he went away again and prayed a third time, saying the same thing once more.44And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
45Then he came to the disciples and said to them, "Are you still sleeping and resting? See, the time is near.

48His betrayer had given them a sign: "The one I kiss, he's the one; arrest him."48Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.
49So immediately he went up to Jesus and said, "Greetings, Rabbi!" and kissed him.49And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.
50"Friend," Jesus asked him, "why have you come?" Then they came up, took hold of Jesus, and arrested him.50And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.
51At that moment one of those with Jesus reached out his hand and drew his sword. He struck the high priest's servant and cut off his ear.51And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off his ear.

55At that time Jesus said to the crowds, "Have you come out with swords and clubs, as if I were a criminal, to capture me? Every day I used to sit, teaching in the temple, and you didn't arrest me.55In 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.

62The high priest stood up and said to him, "Don't you have an answer to what these men are testifying against you?"62And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?
63But Jesus kept silent. The high priest said to him, "I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Messiah, the Son of God."63But 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.
64"You have said it," Jesus told him.

65Then the high priest tore his robes and said, "He has blasphemed! Why do we still need witnesses? See, now you've heard the blasphemy.65Then 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.
66What is your decision?" They answered, "He deserves death!"66What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.

68and said, "Prophesy to us, Messiah! Who was it that hit you?"68Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?

72And again he denied it with an oath: "I don't know the man!"72And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.
73After a little while those standing there approached and said to Peter, "You really are one of them, since even your accent gives you away."73And 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.
74Then he started to curse and to swear with an oath, "I don't know the man!" Immediately a rooster crowed,74Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.
75and Peter remembered the words Jesus had spoken, "Before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times." And he went outside and wept bitterly.75And 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.
