Chapter 13John

13

1 Now before the feast of the passover, :Jesus knowing that his :hour was come for him to depart out of this :world unto the Father, having loved his :own, those in the world, he loved them unto the end. 2 And during supper (the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to deliver him up), 3 knowing that the Father had given all things into his :hands, and that he came forth from God, and goeth unto :God, 4 he riseth from :supper, and layeth aside his :garments; and he took a towel, and girded himself. 5 Then he poureth water into the basin, and began to wash the feet of the disciples, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. 6 He cometh therefore unto Simon Peter. He saith to him, Lord, dost THOU wash MY :feet? 7 Jesus answered and said to him, What I do THOU knowest not now; but shalt understand hereafter. 8 Peter saith to him, Thou shalt never wash my :feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. 9 Simon Peter saith to him, Lord, not my :feet only, but also the hands and the head. 10 Jesus saith to him, Who is bathed needeth not save to wash his :feet, but is wholly clean: and ye are clean, but not all. 11 For he knew him that was delivering him up; for this cause said he, Ye are not all clean. 12 When therefore he had washed their :feet, and taken his :garments, and reclined again, he said to them, Know ye what I have done to you? 13 YE call me the Teacher and the Lord: and ye say well; for I am. 14 If I therefore, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed YOUR :feet, ye also ought to wash the feet of one another. 15 For I have given you an example, that ye also should do even as I have done to you. 16 Amen, Amen, I say unto you, A bondman is not greater than his :lord; neither an apostle greater than he who sent him. 17 If ye know these things, blessed are ye if ye do them. 18 I speak not of you all: I know the ones I chose: but that the scripture be fulfilled, Who eateth my :bread lifted up his :heel against me. 19 From henceforth I tell you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he. 20 Amen, Amen, I say unto you, Who receiveth whomever I shall send receiveth me; and who receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. 21 When Jesus had said these things he was troubled in the spirit, and witnessed, and said, Amen, Amen, I say unto you, that one of you shall deliver me up. 22 The disciples looked at each other, perplexed of whom he spake. 23 One of the disciples, whom :Jesus loved, was reclining in the bosom of Jesus. 24 Simon Peter therefore beckoneth to this one, and saith to him, Tell who it is of whom he speaketh. 25 HE leaning back thus on the breast of :Jesus saith to him, Lord, who is it? 26 :Jesus therefore answereth, He it is for whom I shall dip the sop, and give to him. On dipping, therefore, the sop, he taketh and giveth it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot. 27 And after the sop, then entered :Satan into him. Jesus therefore saith to him, What thou doest, do quickly. 28 Now none of those reclining knew for what he spake this to him. 29 For some thought, since Judas had the bag, that Jesus saith to him, Buy what things we have need of for the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor. 30 HE then having received the sop went out straightway: and it was night.

31 When therefore he went out, Jesus saith, Now was the Son of :man glorified, and :God was glorified in him; 32 and :God shall glorify him in himself, and straightway shall he glorify him. 33 Little children, yet a little I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said to the Jews [that], Whither I go, YE cannot come; I now say also to you. 34 A new commandment I give to you, that ye love one another; even as I loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. 36 Simon Peter saith to him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow afterward. 37 :Peter saith to him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee even now? I will lay down my :life for thee. 38 Jesus answereth, Wilt thou lay down thy :life for me? Amen, Amen, I tell thee, The cock shall in nowise crow, till thou hast denied me thrice.
