54 They seized him, led him away, and brought him into the high priest’s house. Meanwhile Peteraa was following at a distance. 55 Theyab lit a fire in the middle of the courtyardac and sat down together, and Peter sat among them. 56 When a servant saw him sitting in the light, and looked closely at him, she said, “This man was with him too.”
57 But he denied it: “Woman, I don’t know him.”
58 After a little while, someone else saw him and said, “You’re one of them too.”
“Man, I am not!” Peter said.
59 About an hour later, another kept insisting, “This man was certainly with him, since he’s also a Galilean.”
60 But Peter said, “Man, I don’t know what you’re talking about!” Immediately, while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed. 61 Then the Lord turned and looked at Peter.ad So Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said to him, “Before the rooster crows today, you will deny me three times.”ae 62 And he went outside and wept bitterly.
