18 When Jesus had spoken these words, ahe went forth with his disciples over bthe brook Cedron, awhere was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples. 2 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew cthe place: dfor Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples. 3 eJudas then, having received a fband of men and gofficers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and htorches and weapons. 4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, iWhom seek ye? 5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. 6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. 7 Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. 8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: 9 That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, kOf them which thou gavest me have I lost none. 10 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus. 11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: lthe cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?
12 Then fmthe band and mthe captain and gofficers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him, 13 And nled him away to oAnnas first; for he was father in law to pCaiaphas, which was the high priest qthat same year. 14 ||Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, rthat it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
15 sAnd Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into tthe palace of the high priest. 16 uBut Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto xher that kept the door, and brought in Peter. 17 Then saith ythe damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou also one of this man’s disciples? He saith, I am not. 18 And the servants and gofficers stood there, who had made za fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.
19 aThe high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine. 20 Jesus answered him, I spake bopenly to the world; I ever taught cin the synagogue, and din the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and ein secret have I said nothing. 21 fWhy askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto them: behold, gthey know what I said. 22 And when he had thus spoken, one of the hofficers which stood by istruck Jesus ||with the palm of his hand, saying, kAnswerest thou the high priest so? 23 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me? 24 Now Annas lhad sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.
25 mAnd Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. nThey said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not. 26 One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman owhose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him? 27 Peter then denied again: and immediately pthe cock crew.
28 qThen led they Jesus from rCaiaphas unto ||the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, slest they should be defiled; but tthat they might eat the passover. 29 uPilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man? 30 They answered and said unto him, If he were not a xmalefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee. 31 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and yjudge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death: 32 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, zsignifying what death he should die. 33 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, aArt thou the King of the Jews? 34 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me? 35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done? 36 Jesus answered, bMy kingdom is not cof this world: if my kingdom were cof this world, then would dmy servants efight, that I should not fbe delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. 37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, gThou sayest that I am a king. hTo this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should ibear witness unto kthe truth. lEvery one that is of the truth heareth my voice. 38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he mwent out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, nI find in him no fault at all. 39 oBut ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews? 40 Then cried they all pagain, saying, qNot this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was ra robber.
