13:1 Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that
his hour was come that he should depart out of this world to
the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he
loved them to the end.
13:2 And supper being ended (the devil having now put into the
heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's [son], to betray him;)
13:3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his
hands, and that he had come from God, and was going to God;
13:4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and
took a towel, and girded himself.
13:5 After that, he poured water into a basin, and began to wash
the disciples feet, and to wipe [them] with the towel with
which he was girded.
13:6 Then he cometh to Simon Peter: and Peter saith to him,
Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
13:7 Jesus answered and said to him, What I do thou knowest not
now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
13:8 Peter saith to him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus
answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
13:9 Simon Peter saith to him, Lord, not my feet only, but also
[my] hands and [my] head.
13:10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to
wash [his] feet, but is wholly clean: and ye are clean, but not
13:11 For he knew who would betray him; therefore said he, Ye
are not all clean.
13:12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his
garments, and was set down again, he said to them, Know ye what
I have done to you?
13:13 Ye call me Master, and Lord: and ye say well; for [so] I
13:14 If I then, [your] Lord and Master, have washed your feet;
ye also ought to wash one another's feet.
13:15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I
have done to you.
13:16 Verily, verily, I say to you, The servant is not greater
than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that
13:17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.
13:18 I speak not of you all; I know whom I have chosen: but
that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with
me, hath lifted up his heel against me.
13:19 Now I tell you before it cometh, that when it hath come to
pass, ye may believe that I am [he].
13:20 Verily, verily, I say to you, He that receiveth whomsoever
I send, receiveth me; and he that receiveth me, receiveth him
that sent me.
13:21 When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and
testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say to you, that one of
you will betray me.
13:22 Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom
13:23 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom, one of his
disciples, whom Jesus loved.
13:24 Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, to ask who it
should be of whom he spoke.
13:25 He then lying on Jesus' breast, saith to him, Lord, who is
13:26 Jesus answered, He it is to whom I shall give a sop, when
I have dipped [it]. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave
[it] to Judas Iscariot, [the son] of Simon.
13:27 And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus
to him, What thou doest, do quickly.
13:28 Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spoke this
13:29 For some [of them] thought, because Judas had the bag,
that Jesus had said to him, Buy [those things] that we have
need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to
13:30 He then having received the sop, went immediately out: and
it was night.
13:31 Therefore when he had gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son
of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.
13:32 If God is glorified in him, God will also glorify him in
himself, and will immediately glorify him.
13:33 Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye will
seek me: and, as I said to the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot
come; so now I say to you.
13:34 A new commandment I give to you, That ye love one another;
as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
13:35 By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples, if
ye have love one to another.
13:36 Simon Peter said to him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus
answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but
thou shalt follow me afterward.
13:37 Peter said to him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I
will lay down my life for thy sake.
13:38 Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my
sake? Verily, verily, I say to thee, The cock will not crow,
till thou hast denied me thrice.
