Mark 14:27-53 American Standard Version

27  And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered abroad. 28  Howbeit, after I am raised up, I will go before you into Galilee. 29  But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I. 30  And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, that thou to-day, [even] this night, before the cock crow twice, shalt deny me thrice. 31  But he spake exceedingly vehemently, If I must die with thee, I will not deny thee. And in like manner also said they all.

Jesus Prays in Gethsemane

32  And they come unto a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith unto his disciples, Sit ye here, while I pray. 33  And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be greatly amazed, and sore troubled. 34  And he saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful even unto death: abide ye here, and watch. 35  And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass away from him. 36  And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; remove this cup from me: howbeit not what I will, but what thou wilt. 37  And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest thou not watch one hour? 38  Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. 39  And again he went away, and prayed, saying the same words. 40  And again he came, and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy; and they knew not what to answer him. 41  And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough; the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42  Arise, let us be going: behold, he that betrayeth me is at hand.

The Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus

43  And straightway, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. 44  Now he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is he; take him, and lead him away safely. 45  And when he was come, straightway he came to him, and saith, Rabbi; and kissed him. 46  And they laid hands on him, and took him. 47  But a certain one of them that stood by drew his sword, and smote the servant of the high priest, and struck off his ear. 48  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a robber, with swords and staves to seize me? 49  I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but [this is done] that the scriptures might be fulfilled. 50  And they all left him, and fled.

The Young Man Who Fled

51  And a certain young man followed with him, having a linen cloth cast about him, over [his] naked [body]: and they lay hold on him; 52  but he left the linen cloth, and fled naked.

Jesus before the Council

53  And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and there come together with him all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.
