Luke 22:47-71 American Standard Version

The Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus

47  While he yet spake, behold, a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them; and he drew near unto Jesus to kiss him. 48  But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss? 49  And when they that were about him saw what would follow, they said, Lord, shall we smite with the sword? 50  And a certain one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and struck off his right ear. 51  But Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye [them] thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him. 52  And Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and elders, that were come against him, Are ye come out, as against a robber, with swords and staves? 53  When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched not forth your hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

Peter Denies Jesus

54  And they seized him, and led him [away], and brought him into the high priest's house. But Peter followed afar off. 55  And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the court, and had sat down together, Peter sat in the midst of them. 56  And a certain maid seeing him as he sat in the light [of the fire], and looking stedfastly upon him, said, This man also was with him. 57  But he denied, saying, Woman, I know him not. 58  And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou also art [one] of them. But Peter said, Man, I am not. 59  And after the space of about one hour another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this man also was with him; for he is a Galilaean. 60  But 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 that he said unto him, Before the cock crow this day thou shalt deny me thrice. 62  And he went out, and wept bitterly.

Jesus Mocked and Beaten

63  And the men that held [Jesus] mocked him, and beat him. 64  And they blindfolded him, and asked him, saying, Prophesy: who is he that struck thee? 65  And many other things spake they against him, reviling him.

Jesus before the Council

66  And as soon as it was day, the assembly of the elders of the people was gathered together, both chief priests and scribes; and they led him away into their council, saying, 67  If thou art the Christ, tell us. But he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe: 68  and if I ask [you], ye will not answer. 69  But from henceforth shall the Son of man be seated at the right hand of the power of God. 70  And they all said, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am. 71  And they said, What further need have we of witness? for we ourselves have heard from his own mouth.
