Mark 14:27-53 Darby’s Translation

27  And Jesus says to them, All ye shall be offended, for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered abroad. 28  But after I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee. 29  But Peter said to him, Even if all should be offended, yet not I. 30  And Jesus says to him, Verily I say to thee, that thou to-day, in this night, before [the] cock shall crow twice, thou shalt thrice deny me. 31  But he said [so much] exceedingly the more, If I should have to die with thee, I will in no wise deny thee. And likewise said they all too.

Jesus Prays in Gethsemane

32  And they come to a place of which the name [is] Gethsemane, and he says to his disciples, Sit here while I shall pray. 33  And he takes with him Peter and James and John, and he began to be amazed and oppressed in spirit. 34  And he says to them, My soul is full of grief even unto death; abide here and watch. 35  And, going forward a little, he fell upon the earth; and he prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass away from him. 36  And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible to thee: take away this cup from me; but not what I will, but what thou [wilt]. 37  And he comes and finds them sleeping. And he says to Peter, Simon, dost thou sleep? Hast thou not been able to watch one hour? 38  Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation. The spirit indeed [is] willing, but the flesh weak. 39  And going away, he prayed again, saying the same thing. 40  And returning, he found them again sleeping, for their eyes were heavy; and they knew not what they should answer him. 41  And he comes the third time and says to them, Sleep on now, and take your rest. It is enough; the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is delivered up into the hands of sinners. 42  Arise, let us go; behold, he that delivers me up has drawn nigh.

The Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus

43  And immediately, while he was yet speaking, Judas comes up, [being] one of the twelve, and with him a great crowd, with swords and sticks, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. 44  Now he that delivered him up had given them a sign between them, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is he; seize him, and lead [him] away safely. 45  And being come, straightway coming up to him, he says, Rabbi, Rabbi; and he covered him with kisses. 46  And they laid their hands upon him and seized him. 47  But a certain one of those who stood by, having drawn his sword, struck the bondman of the high priest, and took off his ear. 48  And Jesus answering said to them, Are ye come out as against a robber, with swords and sticks to take me? 49  I was daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye did not seize me; but [it is] that the scriptures may be fulfilled. 50  And all left him and fled.

The Young Man Who Fled

51  And a certain young man followed him with a linen cloth cast about his naked [body]; and [the young men] seize him; 52  but he, leaving the linen cloth behind [him], fled from them naked.

Jesus before the Council

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