Matthew 26:31–46

31 Then Jesus said to them, eAll of you will fbe 6made to stumble because of Me this night, for it is written:

gI will strike the Shepherd,

And the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’

32 But after I have been raised, hI will go before you to Galilee.”

33 Peter answered and said to Him, “Even if all are 7made to stumble because of You, I will never be made to stumble.”

34 Jesus said to him, iAssuredly, I say to you that this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.”

35 Peter said to Him, “Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!”

And so said all the disciples.

Jesus’ Three Prayers

Mark 14:32–42; Luke 22:40–46

36 jThen Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples, Sit here while I go and pray over there.” 37 And He took with Him Peter and kthe two sons of Zebedee, and He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed. 38 Then He said to them, lMy soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.”

39 He went a little farther and fell on His face, and mprayed, saying, nO My Father, if it is possible, olet this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, pnot as I will, but as You will.”

40 Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, What! Could you not watch with Me one hour? 41 qWatch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. rThe spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

42 Again, a second time, He went away and prayed, saying, O My Father, 8if this cup cannot pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.” 43 And He came and found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy.

44 So He left them, went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. 45 Then He came to His disciples and said to them, Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour 9is at hand, and the Son of Man is being sbetrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise, let us be going. See, My betrayer is at hand.”
