Mark 14:26–42

26 aAfter singing a hymn, they went out to bthe Mount of Olives.

27 aAnd Jesus * said to them, You will all 1fall away, because it is written, ‘bI will strike down the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.’

28 But after I have been raised, aI will go ahead of you to Galilee.”

29 But Peter said to Him, “Even though all may 1fall away, yet I will not.”

30 And Jesus * said to him, Truly I say to you, that 1athis very night, before ba rooster crows twice, you yourself will deny Me three times.”

31 But Peter kept saying insistently, “Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!” And they all were saying the same thing also.

Jesus in Gethsemane

32 aThey * came to a place named Gethsemane; and He * said to His disciples, Sit here until I have prayed.”

33 And He * took with Him Peter and 1James and John, and began to be very adistressed and troubled.

34 And He * said to them, aMy soul is deeply grieved to the point of death; remain here and keep watch.”

35 And He went a little beyond them, and fell to the ground and began to pray that if it were possible, athe hour might 1pass Him by.

36 And He was saying, aAbba! Father! All things are possible for You; remove this cup from Me; byet not what I will, but what You will.”

37 And He * came and * found them sleeping, and * said to Peter, Simon, are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for one hour?

38 aKeep watching and praying that you may not come into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

39 Again He went away and prayed, saying the same 1words.

40 And again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy; and they did not know what to answer Him.

41 And He * came the third time, and * said to them, 1Are you still sleeping and resting? It is enough; athe hour has come; behold, the Son of Man is being 2betrayed into the hands of sinners.

42 Get up, let us be going; behold, the one who betrays Me is at hand!”
