Mark 14:54-72 American Standard Version

54  And Peter had followed him afar off, even within, into the court of the high priest; and he was sitting with the officers, and warming himself in the light [of the fire]. 55  Now the chief priests and the whole council sought witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found it not. 56  For many bare false witness against him, and their witness agreed not together. 57  And there stood up certain, and bare false witness against him, saying, 58  We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and in three days I will build another made without hands. 59  And not even so did their witness agree together. 60  And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee? 61  But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and saith unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? 62  And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven. 63  And the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What further need have we of witnesses? 64  Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be worthy of death. 65  And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the officers received him with blows of their hands.

Peter Denies Jesus

66  And as Peter was beneath in the court, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest; 67  and seeing Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and saith, Thou also wast with the Nazarene, [even] Jesus. 68  But he denied, saying, I neither know, nor understand what thou sayest: and he went out into the porch; and the cock crew. 69  And the maid saw him, and began again to say to them that stood by, This is [one] of them. 70  But he again denied it. And after a little while again they that stood by said to Peter, of a truth thou art [one] of them; for thou art a Galilaean. 71  But he began to curse, and to swear, I know not this man of whom ye speak. 72  And straightway the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word, how that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.
