Christ Speaks to Peter

15 So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of 2Jonah, do you love Me more than these?”

He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I 3love You.”

He said to him, l“Feed My lambs.”

16 He said to him again a second time, “Simon, son of 4Jonah, do you love Me?”

He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I 5love You.”

mHe said to him, “Tend My nsheep.”

17 He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of 6Jonah, do you 7love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you 7love Me?”

And he said to Him, “Lord, oYou know all things; You know that I 7love You.”

Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep. 18 pMost assuredly, I say to you, when you were younger, you girded yourself and walked where you wished; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish.” 19 This He spoke, signifying qby what death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, r“Follow Me.”
