Matthew 26:26-50 American Standard Version

26  And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it; and he gave to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. 27  And he took a cup, and gave thanks, and gave to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; 28  for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many unto remission of sins. 29  But I say unto you, I shall not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

Peter's Denial Foretold

30  And when they had sung a hymn, they went out unto the mount of Olives.

31  Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended in me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad. 32  But after I am raised up, I will go before you into Galilee. 33  But Peter answered and said unto him, If all shall be offended in thee, I will never be offended. 34  Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, that this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. 35  Peter saith unto him, Even if I must die with thee, [yet] will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.

Jesus Prays in Gethsemane

36  Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto his disciples, Sit ye here, while I go yonder and pray. 37  And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and sore troubled. 38  Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: abide ye here, and watch with me. 39  And he went forward a little, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass away from me: nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt. 40  And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? 41  Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. 42  Again a second time he went away, and prayed, saying, My Father, if this cannot pass away, except I drink it, thy will be done. 43  And he came again and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. 44  And he left them again, and went away, and prayed a third time, saying again the same words. 45  Then cometh he to the disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46  Arise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that betrayeth me.

The Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus

47  And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priest and elders of the people. 48  Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is he: take him. 49  And straightway he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, Rabbi; and kissed him. 50  And Jesus said unto him, Friend, [do] that for which thou art come. Then they came and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.
