Luke 22:47-71 Darby’s Translation

The Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus

47  As he was yet speaking, behold, a crowd, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went on before them, and drew near to Jesus to kiss him. 48  And Jesus said to him, Judas, deliverest thou up the Son of man with a kiss? 49  And they who were around him, seeing what was going to follow, said [to him], Lord, shall we smite with [the] sword? 50  And a certain one from among them smote the bondman of the high priest and took off his right ear. 51  And Jesus answering said, Suffer thus far; and having touched his ear, he healed him. 52  And Jesus said to the chief priests and captains of the temple and elders, who were come against him, Have ye come out as against a robber with swords and sticks? 53  When I was day by day with you in the temple ye did not stretch out your hands against me; but this is your hour and the power of darkness.

Peter Denies Jesus

54  And having laid hold on him, they led him [away], and they led [him] into the house of the high priest. And Peter followed afar off. 55  And they having lit a fire in the midst of the court and sat down together, Peter sat among them. 56  And a certain maid, having seen him sitting by the light, and having fixed her eyes upon him, said, And this [man] was with him. 57  But he denied [him], saying, Woman, I do not know him. 58  And after a short time another seeing him said, And thou art of them. But Peter said, Man, I am not. 59  And after the lapse of about one hour another stoutly maintained it, saying, In truth this [man] also was with him, for also he is a Galilaean. 60  And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he was yet speaking, [the] cock crew. 61  And the Lord, turning round, looked at Peter; and Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he said to him, Before [the] cock crow thou shalt deny me thrice. 62  And Peter, going forth without, wept bitterly.

Jesus Mocked and Beaten

63  And the men who held him mocked him, beating [him]; 64  and covering him up, asked him saying, Prophesy, who is it that struck thee? 65  And they said many other injurious things to him.

Jesus before the Council

66  And when it was day, the elderhood of the people, both [the] chief priests and scribes, were gathered together, and led him into their council, saying, 67  If thou art the Christ, tell us. And he said to them, If I tell you, ye will not at all believe; 68  and if I should ask [you], ye would not answer me at all, nor let me go; 69  but henceforth shall the Son of man be sitting on the right hand of the power of God. 70  And they all said, Thou then art the Son of God? And he said to them, Ye say that I am. 71  And they said, What need have we any more of witness, for we have heard ourselves out of his mouth?
