Luke 22:31-46 New Revised Standard Version

Peter's Denial Foretold

31  "Simon, Simon, listen! Satan has demanded to sift all of you like wheat, 32  but I have prayed for you that your own faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned back, strengthen your brothers." 33  And he said to him, "Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death!" 34  Jesus said, "I tell you, Peter, the cock will not crow this day, until you have denied three times that you know me."

Purse, Scrip, and Sword

35  He said to them, "When I sent you out without a purse, bag, or sandals, did you lack anything?" They said, "No, not a thing." 36  He said to them, "But now, the one who has a purse must take it, and likewise a bag. And the one who has no sword must sell his cloak and buy one. 37  For I tell you, this scripture must be fulfilled in me, "And he was counted among the lawless'; and indeed what is written about me is being fulfilled." 38  They said, "Lord, look, here are two swords." He replied, "It is enough."

Jesus Prays in the Garden

39  He came out and went, as was his custom, to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples followed him. 40  When he reached the place, he said to them, "Pray that you may not come into the time of trial." 41  Then he withdrew from them about a stone's throw, knelt down, and prayed, 42  "Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me; yet, not my will but yours be done." 43  [Then an angel from heaven appeared to him and gave him strength. 44  In his anguish he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down on the ground.] 45  When he got up from prayer, he came to the disciples and found them sleeping because of grief, 46  and he said to them, "Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray that you may not come into the time of trial."
