13 Now abefore the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that bhis hour was come that he should cdepart out of this world unto the Father, having loved dhis own ewhich were in the world, he loved them unto the end. 2 And supper being ended, fthe devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, gSimon’s son, to betray him; 3 Jesus knowing that hthe Father had given all things into his hands, and ithat he was come from God, and cwent to God; 4 kHe riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and lgirded himself. 5 After that he mpoureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. 6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and †Peter saith unto him, nLord, dost thou wash my feet? 7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; obut thou shalt know hereafter. 8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, pIf I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. 9 Simon Peter saith unto him, qLord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. 10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is rclean severy whit: and tye are clean, but not all. 11 For uhe knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.
12 So after he had washed their feet, and xhad taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, oKnow ye what I have done to you? 13 Ye call me yMaster and zLord: and ye say well; for so I am. 14 If I then, your Lord and Master, khave washed your feet; aye also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15 For I have given you an example, bthat ye should do as I have done to you. 16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, cThe servant is not greater than his lord; neither cche that is sent greater than he that sent him. 17 dIf ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them. 18 eI speak not of you all: I know whom fI have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, gHe that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me. 19 h||Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that iI am he. 20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, kHe that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
21 When Jesus had lthus said, he mwas troubled in spirit, and ntestified, and said, oVerily, verily, I say unto you, that pone of you shall betray me. 22 Then qthe disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake. 23 Now there was leaning on Jesus’ rbosom one of his disciples, swhom Jesus loved. 24 Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake. 25 He then tlying on Jesus’ breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it? 26 Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a ||sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had udipped the sop, xhe gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. 27 And after the sop ySatan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, zThat thou doest, do quickly. 28 Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him. 29 For some of them thought, because aJudas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of bagainst the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor. 30 He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.
31 Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man cglorified, and dGod is glorified in him. 32 If dGod be glorified in him, God shall also eglorify him in himself, and fshall straightway glorify him. 33 Little children, gyet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: hand as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you. 34 iA new commandment jI give unto you, kThat ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 lBy this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
36 Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, mwhither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, nthou canst not follow me now; but othou shalt follow me afterwards. 37 pPeter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake. 38 Jesus answered him, qWilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, rThe cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me sthrice.
