Matthew 26 Young’s Literal Translation

The Leaders Plot against Jesus

26 1 And it came to pass, when Jesus finished all these words, he said to his disciples, 2 'Ye have known that after two days the passover cometh, and the Son of Man is delivered up to be crucified.' 3 Then were gathered together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, to the court of the chief priest who was called Caiaphas; 4 and they consulted together that they might take Jesus by guile, and kill 'him', 5 and they said, 'Not in the feast, that there may not be a tumult among the people.'

Jesus Anointed at Bethany

6 And Jesus having been in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, 7 there came to him a woman having an alabaster box of ointment, very precious, and she poured on his head as he is reclining (at meat). 8 And having seen 'it', his disciples were much displeased, saying, 'To what purpose 'is' this waste? 9 for this ointment could have been sold for much, and given to the poor.' 10 And Jesus having known, said to them, 'Why do ye give trouble to the woman? for a good work she wrought for me; 11 for the poor always ye have with you, and me ye have not always; 12 for she having put this ointment on my body—for my burial she did 'it'. 13 Verily I say to you, Wherever this good news may be proclaimed in the whole world, what this 'one' did shall also be spoken of—for a memorial of her.'

Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus

14 Then one of the twelve, who is called Judas Iscariot, having gone unto the chief priests, said, 15 'What are ye willing to give me, and I will deliver him up to you?' and they weighed out to him thirty silverlings, 16 and from that time he was seeking a convenient season to deliver him up.

Jesus Eats the Passover with His Disciples

17 And on the first 'day' of the unleavened food came the disciples near to Jesus, saying to him, 'Where wilt thou 'that' we may prepare for thee to eat the passover?' 18 and he said, 'Go away to the city, unto such a one, and say to him, The Teacher saith, My time is nigh; near thee I keep the passover, with my disciples;' 19 and the disciples did as Jesus appointed them, and prepared the passover. 20 And evening having come, he was reclining (at meat) with the twelve, 21 and while they are eating, he said, 'Verily I say to you, that one of you shall deliver me up.' 22 And being grieved exceedingly, they began to say to him, each of them, 'Is it I, Sir?' 23 And he answering said, 'He who did dip with me the hand in the dish, he will deliver me up; 24 the Son of Man doth indeed go, as it hath been written concerning him, but wo to that man through whom the Son of Man is delivered up! good it were for him if that man had not been born.' 25 And Judas—he who delivered him up—answering said, 'Is it I, Rabbi?' He saith to him, 'Thou hast said.'

26 And while they were eating, Jesus having taken the bread, and having blessed, did brake, and was giving to the disciples, and said, 'Take, eat, this is my body;' 27 and having taken the cup, and having given thanks, he gave to them, saying, 'Drink ye of it—all; 28 for this is my blood of the new covenant, that for many is being poured out—to remission of sins; 29 and I say to you, that I may not drink henceforth on this produce of the vine, till that day when I may drink it with you new in the reign of my Father.'

Peter's Denial Foretold

30 And having sung a hymn, they went forth to the mount of the Olives;

31 then saith Jesus to them, 'All ye shall be stumbled at me this night; for it hath been written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad; 32 but, after my having risen, I will go before you to Galilee.' 33 And Peter answering said to him, 'Even if all shall be stumbled at thee, I will never be stumbled.' 34 Jesus said to him, 'Verily I say to thee, that, this night, before cock-crowing, thrice thou wilt deny me.' 35 Peter saith to him, 'Even if it may be necessary for me to die with thee, I will not deny thee;' in like manner also said all the disciples.

Jesus Prays in Gethsemane

36 Then come with them doth Jesus to a place called Gethsemane, and he saith to the disciples, 'Sit ye here, till having gone away, I shall pray yonder.' 37 And having taken Peter, and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful, and to be very heavy; 38 then saith he to them, 'Exceedingly sorrowful is my soul—unto death; abide ye here, and watch with me.' 39 And having gone forward a little, he fell on his face, praying, and saying, 'My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as Thou.' 40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them sleeping, and he saith to Peter, 'So! ye were not able one hour to watch with me! 41 watch, and pray, that ye may not enter into temptation: the spirit indeed is forward, but the flesh weak.' 42 Again, a second time, having gone away, he prayed, saying, 'My Father, if this cup cannot pass away from me except I drink it, Thy will be done;' 43 and having come, he findeth them again sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. 44 And having left them, having gone away again, he prayed a third time, saying the same word; 45 then cometh he unto his disciples, and saith to them, 'Sleep on henceforth, and rest! lo, the hour hath come nigh, and the Son of Man is delivered up to the hands of sinners. 46 Rise, let us go; lo, he hath come nigh who is delivering me up.'

The Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus

47 And while he is yet speaking, lo, Judas, one of the twelve did come, and with him a great multitude, with swords and sticks, from the chief priests and elders of the people. 48 And he who did deliver him up did give them a sign, saying, 'Whomsoever I will kiss, it is he: lay hold on him;' 49 and immediately, having come to Jesus, he said, 'Hail, Rabbi,' and kissed him; 50 and Jesus said to him, 'Comrade, for what art thou present?' Then having come near, they laid hands on Jesus, and took hold on him. 51 And lo, one of those with Jesus, having stretched forth the hand, drew his sword, and having struck the servant of the chief priest, he took off his ear. 52 Then saith Jesus to him, 'Turn back thy sword to its place; for all who did take the sword, by the sword shall perish; 53 dost thou think that I am not able now to call upon my Father, and He will place beside me more than twelve legions of messengers? 54 how then may the Writings be fulfilled, that thus it behoveth to happen?' 55 In that hour said Jesus to the multitudes, 'As against a robber ye did come forth, with swords and sticks, to take me! daily with you I was sitting teaching in the temple, and ye did not lay hold on me; 56 but all this hath come to pass, that the Writings of the prophets may be fulfilled;' then all the disciples, having left him, fled.

Jesus before the Council

57 And those laying hold on Jesus led 'him' away unto Caiaphas the chief priest, where the scribes and the elders were gathered together, 58 and Peter was following him afar off, unto the court of the chief priest, and having gone in within, he was sitting with the officers, to see the end. 59 And the chief priests, and the elders, and all the council, were seeking false witness against Jesus, that they might put him to death, 60 and they did not find; and many false witnesses having come near, they did not find; and at last two false witnesses having come near, 61 said, 'This one said, I am able to throw down the sanctuary of God, and after three days to build it.' 62 And the chief priest having stood up, said to him, 'Nothing thou dost answer! what do these witness against thee? 63 and Jesus was silent. And the chief priest answering said to him, 'I adjure thee, by the living God, that thou mayest say to us, if thou art the Christ—the Son of God.' 64 Jesus saith to him, 'Thou hast said; nevertheless I say to you, hereafter ye shall see the Son of Man sitting on the right hand of the power, and coming upon the clouds, of the heaven.' 65 Then the chief priest rent his garments, saying,—'He hath spoken evil; what need have we yet of witnesses? lo, now ye heard his evil speaking; 66 what think ye?' and they answering said, 'He is worthy of death.' 67 Then did they spit in his face and buffet him, and others did slap, 68 saying, 'Declare to us, O Christ, who he is that struck thee?'

Peter Denies Jesus

69 And Peter without was sitting in the court, and there came near to him a certain maid, saying, 'And thou wast with Jesus of Galilee!' 70 And he denied before all, saying, 'I have not known what thou sayest.' 71 And he having gone forth to the porch, another female saw him, and saith to those there, 'And this one was with Jesus of Nazareth;' 72 and again did he deny with an oath—'I have not known the man.' 73 And after a little those standing near having come, said to Peter, 'Truly thou also art of them, for even thy speech doth make thee manifest.' 74 Then began he to anathematise, and to swear—'I have not known the man;' and immediately did a cock crow, 75 and Peter remembered the saying of Jesus, he having said to him—'Before cock-crowing, thrice thou wilt deny me;' and having gone without, he did weep bitterly.

Mark 14 Young’s Literal Translation

The Leaders Plot against Jesus

14 1 And the passover and the unleavened food were after two days, and the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how, by guile, having taken hold of him, they might kill him; 2 and they said, 'Not in the feast, lest there shall be a tumult of the people.'

Jesus Anointed at Bethany

3 And he, being in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, at his reclining (at meat), there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment, of spikenard, very precious, and having broken the alabaster box, did pour on his head; 4 and there were certain much displeased within themselves, and saying, 'For what hath this waste of the ointment been made? 5 for this could have been sold for more than three hundred denaries, and given to the poor;' and they were murmuring at her. 6 And Jesus said, 'Let her alone; why are ye giving her trouble? a good work she wrought on me; 7 for the poor always ye have with you, and whenever ye may will ye are able to do them good, but me ye have not always; 8 what she could she did, she anticipated to anoint my body for the embalming. 9 Verily I say to you, wherever this good news may be proclaimed in the whole world, what also this woman did shall be spoken of—for a memorial of her.'

Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus

10 And Judas the Iscariot, one of the twelve, went away unto the chief priests that he might deliver him up to them, 11 and having heard, they were glad, and promised to give him money, and he was seeking how, conveniently, he might deliver him up.

Jesus Eats the Passover with His Disciples

12 And the first day of the unleavened food, when they were killing the passover, his disciples say to him, 'Where wilt thou, 'that,' having gone, we may prepare, that thou mayest eat the passover?' 13 And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith to them, 'Go ye away to the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water, follow him; 14 and wherever he may go in, say ye to the master of the house—The Teacher saith, Where is the guest-chamber, where the passover, with my disciples, I may eat? 15 and he will shew you a large upper room, furnished, prepared—there make ready for us.' 16 And his disciples went forth, and came to the city, and found as he said to them, and they made ready the passover. 17 And evening having come, he cometh with the twelve, 18 and as they are reclining, and eating, Jesus said, 'Verily I say to you—one of you, who is eating with me—shall deliver me up.' 19 And they began to be sorrowful, and to say to him, one by one, 'Is it I?' and another, 'Is it I?' 20 And he answering said to them, 'One of the twelve who is dipping with me in the dish; 21 the Son of Man doth indeed go, as it hath been written concerning him, but wo to that man through whom the Son of Man is delivered up; good were it to him if that man had not been born.' 22 And as they are eating, Jesus having taken bread, having blessed, brake, and gave to them, and said, 'Take, eat; this is my body.' 23 And having taken the cup, having given thanks, he gave to them, and they drank of it—all; 24 and he said to them, 'This is my blood of the new covenant, which for many is being poured out; 25 verily I say to you, that no more may I drink of the produce of the vine till that day when I may drink it new in the reign of God.'

Peter's Denial Foretold

26 And having sung an hymn, they went forth to the mount of the Olives, 27 and Jesus saith to them—'All ye shall be stumbled at me this night, because it hath been written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered abroad, 28 but after my having risen I will go before you to Galilee.' 29 And Peter said to him, 'And if all shall be stumbled, yet not I;' 30 And Jesus said to him, 'Verily I say to thee, that to-day, this night, before a cock shall crow twice, thrice thou shalt deny me.' 31 And he spake the more vehemently, 'If it may be necessary for me to die with thee—I will in nowise deny thee;' and in like manner also said they all.

Jesus Prays in Gethsemane

32 And they come to a spot, the name of which 'is' Gethsemane, and he saith to his disciples, 'Sit ye here till I may pray;' 33 and he taketh Peter, and James, and John with him, and began to be amazed, and to be very heavy, 34 and he saith to them, 'Exceeding sorrowful is my soul—to death; remain here, and watch.' 35 And having gone forward a little, he fell upon the earth, and was praying, that, if it be possible the hour may pass from him, 36 and he said, 'Abba, Father; all things are possible to Thee; make this cup pass from me; but, not what I will, but what Thou.' 37 And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith to Peter, 'Simon, thou dost sleep! thou wast not able to watch one hour! 38 Watch ye and pray, that ye may not enter into temptation; the spirit indeed is forward, but the flesh weak.' 39 And again having gone away, he prayed, the same word saying; 40 and having returned, he found them again sleeping, for their eyes were heavy, and they had not known what they might answer him. 41 And he cometh the third time, and saith to them, 'Sleep on henceforth, and rest—it is over; the hour did come; lo, the Son of Man is delivered up to the hands of the sinful; 42 rise, we may go, lo, he who is delivering me up hath come nigh.'

The Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus

43 And immediately—while he is yet speaking—cometh near Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude, with swords and sticks, from the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders; 44 and he who is delivering him up had given a token to them, saying, 'Whomsoever I shall kiss, he it is, lay hold on him, and lead him away safely,' 45 and having come, immediately, having gone near him, he saith, 'Rabbi, Rabbi,' and kissed him. 46 And they laid on him their hands, and kept hold on him; 47 and a certain one of those standing by, having drawn the sword, struck the servant of the chief priest, and took off his ear. 48 And Jesus answering said to them, 'As against a robber ye came out, with swords and sticks, to take me! 49 daily I was with you in the temple teaching, and ye did not lay hold on me—but that the Writings may be fulfilled.' 50 And having left him they all fled;

The Young Man Who Fled

51 and a certain young man was following him, having put a linen cloth about 'his' naked body, and the young men lay hold on him, 52 and he, having left the linen cloth, did flee from them naked.

Jesus before the Council

53 And they led away Jesus unto the chief priest, and come together to him do all the chief priests, and the elders, and the scribes; 54 and Peter afar off did follow him, to the inside of the hall of the chief priest, and he was sitting with the officers, and warming himself near the fire. 55 And the chief priests and all the sanhedrim were seeking against Jesus testimony—to put him to death, and they were not finding, 56 for many were bearing false testimony against him, and their testimonies were not alike. 57 And certain having risen up, were bearing false testimony against him, saying— 58 'We heard him saying—I will throw down this sanctuary made with hands, and by three days, another made without hands I will build;' 59 and neither so was their testimony alike. 60 And the chief priest, having risen up in the midst, questioned Jesus, saying, 'Thou dost not answer anything! what do these testify against thee?' 61 and he was keeping silent, and did not answer anything. Again the chief priest was questioning him, and saith to 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 on the right hand of the power, and coming with the clouds, of the heaven.' 63 And the chief priest, having rent his garments, saith, 'What need have we yet of witnesses? 64 Ye heard the evil speaking, what appeareth to you?' and they all condemned him to be worthy of death, 65 and certain began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say to him, 'Prophesy;' and the officers were striking him with their palms.

Peter Denies Jesus

66 And Peter being in the hall beneath, there doth come one of the maids of the chief priest, 67 and having seen Peter warming himself, having looked on him, she said, 'And thou wast with Jesus of Nazareth!' 68 and he denied, saying, 'I have not known 'him', neither do I understand what thou sayest;' and he went forth without to the porch, and a cock crew. 69 And the maid having seen him again, began to say to those standing near—'This is of them;' 70 and he was again denying. And after a little again, those standing near said to Peter, 'Truly thou art of them, for thou also art a Galilean, and thy speech is alike;' 71 and he began to anathematize, and to swear—'I have not known this man of whom ye speak;' 72 and a second time a cock crew, and Peter remembered the saying that Jesus said to him—'Before a cock crow twice, thou mayest deny me thrice;' and having thought thereon—he was weeping.
