13 And nled him away to oAnnas first; for he was father in law to pCaiaphas, which was the high priest qthat same year. 14 ||Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, rthat it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
15 sAnd Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into tthe palace of the high priest. 16 uBut Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto xher that kept the door, and brought in Peter. 17 Then saith ythe damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou also one of this man’s disciples? He saith, I am not. 18 And the servants and gofficers stood there, who had made za fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.
19 aThe high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine. 20 Jesus answered him, I spake bopenly to the world; I ever taught cin the synagogue, and din the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and ein secret have I said nothing. 21 fWhy askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, gthey know what I said. 22 And when he had thus spoken, one of the hofficers which stood by istruck Jesus ||with the palm of his hand, saying, kAnswerest thou the high priest so? 23 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me? 24 Now Annas lhad sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.
25 mAnd Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. nThey said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not. 26 One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman owhose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him? 27 Peter then denied again: and immediately pthe cock crew.
