John 13:1–11

Christ Washes the Disciples’ Feet

13 Now abefore the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that bHis hour had come that He should depart from this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He cloved them to the end.

And 1supper being ended, dthe devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray Him, Jesus, knowing ethat the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He fhad come from God and gwas going to God, hrose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself. After that, He poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded. Then He came to Simon Peter. And Peter said to Him, i“Lord, are You washing my feet?”

Jesus answered and said to him, “What I am doing you jdo not understand now, kbut you will know after this.”

Peter said to Him, “You shall never wash my feet!”

Jesus answered him, l“If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.”

Simon Peter said to Him, “Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head!”

10 Jesus said to him, “He who is bathed needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean; and myou are clean, but not all of you.” 11 For nHe knew who would betray Him; therefore He said, “You are not all clean.”
