John 18:1-18 American Standard Version

The Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus

18 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Kidron, where was a garden, into which he entered, himself and his disciples. 2  Now Judas also, who betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus oft-times resorted thither with his disciples. 3  Judas then, having received the band [of soldiers], and officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons. 4  Jesus therefore, knowing all the things that were coming upon him, went forth, and saith unto them, Whom seek ye? 5  They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am [he]. And Judas also, who betrayed him, was standing with them. 6  When therefore he said unto them, I am [he], they went backward, and fell to the ground. 7  Again therefore he asked them, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. 8  Jesus answered, I told you that I am [he]; if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: 9  that the word might be fulfilled which he spake, Of those whom thou hast given me I lost not one. 10  Simon Peter therefore having a sword drew it, and struck the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. Now the servant's name was Malchus. 11  Jesus therefore said unto Peter, Put up the sword into the sheath: the cup which the Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?

Jesus Brought before the High Priest

12  So the band and the chief captain, and the officers of the Jews, seized Jesus and bound him,

13  and led him to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, who was high priest that year. 14  Now Caiaphas was he that gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.

Peter in the High Priest's Court

15  And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and [so did] another disciple. Now that disciple was known unto the high priest, and entered in with Jesus into the court of the high priest; 16  but Peter was standing at the door without. So the other disciple, who was known unto the high priest, went out and spake unto her that kept the door, and brought in Peter. 17  The maid therefore that kept the door saith unto Peter, Art thou also [one] of this man's disciples? He saith, I am not. 18  Now the servants and the officers were standing [there], having made a fire of coals; for it was cold; and they were warming themselves: and Peter also was with them, standing and warming himself.
