Luke 22:54–71

54 kThen took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest’s house. lAnd Peter followed afar off. 55 mAnd when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the mmhall, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them. 56 But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and nearnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him. 57 And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not. 58 And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not. 59 And about the space of one hour after nnanother oconfidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is a Galilaean. 60 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew. 61 And the Lord turned, and oolooked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, pBefore the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. 62 And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.
