Luke Chapter 22 KJV

1The chief priests and scribes conspire against Christ: 3Judas covenanteth to betray him. 7The apostles sent to prepare the passover: Christ eateth it with them; 19and instituteth his last supper: 21he covertly pointeth out the traitor: 24checketh the ambitious strife of his disciples, and promiseth them a share in his kingdom: 31he telleth Peter of Satan's desire to sift him; 35he adviseth his disciples to provide necessaries and a sword: 39his agony and prayer in the garden: 47he is betrayed; 50healeth a servant of the high priest, whose ear was cut off; 54is led to the high priest's house; Peter thrice denieth him. 63Christ is scornfully used; 66and brought before the council, where confessing himself to be the Son of God, he is pronounced guilty of blasphemy.
1 Now 1the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover.
2 And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; 1for they feared the people.
3 1Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.
4 And he went his way, and 1communed with the chief priests and 2captains, how he might betray him unto them.
5 And they were glad, and 1covenanted to give him money.
6 And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them ain the absence of the multitude.
7 1Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.
8 And 1he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.
9 And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?
10 And he said unto them, 1Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.
11 And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, 1The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?
12 And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.
13 And they went, and 1found as he had said unto them: 2and they made ready the passover.
14 1And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.
15 And he said unto them, aWith desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:
16 For I say unto you, 1I will not any more eat thereof, 2until it be fulfilled 3in the kingdom of God.
17 And he took the cup, and 1gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:
18 For I say unto you, 1I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.
19 1And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This 2is my body which is given for you: 3this do in remembrance of me.
20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, 1This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
21 1But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.
22 1And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but 2woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed!
23 1And they began to enquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing.
24 1And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.
25 And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.
26 But 1ye shall not be so: 2but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as 3he that doth serve.
27 For 1whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? 2but I am among you as he that serveth.
28 Ye are they which have continued with me 1in my temptations.
29 And 1I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;
30 That 1ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and 2sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
31 ¶ And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, 1behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
32 1But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art 2converted, strengthen thy brethren.
33 And he said unto him, Lord, 1I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.
34 1And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.
35 1And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.
36 Then said he unto them, 1But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, 1And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me 2have an end.
38 And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, 1It is enough.
39 1And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.
40 1And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.
41 1And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,
42 Saying, Father, if thou be awilling, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
43 1And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.
44 1And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
45 And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,
46 And said unto them, 1Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.
47 ¶ And while he yet spake, 1behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus 2to kiss him.
48 But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?
49 When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite 1with the sword?
50 1And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.
51 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he 1touched his ear, and healed him.
52 1Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and 2captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?
53 When I was 1daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is 2your hour, and 3the power of darkness.
54 1Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest's house. 2And Peter followed afar off.
55 1And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the 2hall, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them.
56 But 1a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.
57 And he 1denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.
58 1And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.
59 And about the space of one hour after 1another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is a 2Galilaean.
60 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.
61 And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, 1Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
62 1And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.
63 1And the men that held Jesus 2mocked him, and smote him.
64 And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?
65 And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.
66 1And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying,
67 1Art thou the Christ? tell us. 2And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:
68 And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.
69 Hereafter shall the Son of man 1sit on the right hand of the power of God.
70 Then said they all, Art thou then 1the Son of God? And he said unto them, 2Ye say that I am.
71 And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.
