John 13:21-38 Darby’s Translation

Jesus Foretells His Betrayal

21  Having said these things, Jesus was troubled in spirit, and testified and said, Verily, verily, I say to you, that one of you shall deliver me up. 22  The disciples therefore looked one on another, doubting of whom he spoke. 23  Now there was at table one of his disciples in the bosom of Jesus, whom Jesus loved. 24  Simon Peter makes a sign therefore to him to ask who it might be of whom he spoke. 25  But he, leaning on the breast of Jesus, says to him, Lord, who is it? 26  Jesus answers, He it is to whom I, after I have dipped the morsel, give it. And having dipped the morsel, he gives it to Judas [son] of Simon, Iscariote. 27  And, after the morsel, then entered Satan into him. Jesus therefore says to him, What thou doest, do quickly. 28  But none of those at table knew why he said this to him; 29  for some supposed, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus was saying to him, Buy the things of which we have need for the feast; or that he should give something to the poor. 30  Having therefore received the morsel, he went out immediately; and it was night.

The New Commandment

31  When therefore he was gone out Jesus says, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him. 32  If God be glorified in him, God also shall glorify him in himself, and shall glorify him immediately. 33  Children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me; and, as I said to the Jews, Where I go ye cannot come, I say to you also now. 34  A new commandment I give to you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35  By this shall all know that ye are disciples of mine, if ye have love amongst yourselves.

Peter's Denial Foretold

36  Simon Peter says to him, Lord, where goest thou? Jesus answered him, Where I go thou canst not follow me now, but thou shalt follow me after. 37  Peter says to him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thee. 38  Jesus answers, Thou wilt lay down thy life for me! Verily, verily, I say to thee, The cock shall not crow till thou hast denied me thrice.
