John 18


18:1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his
 disciples over the brook Kedron, where was a garden, into which
 he entered, and his disciples.
18:2 And Judas also, who betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus
 often resorted thither with his disciples.
18:3 Judas then, having received a band [of men] and officers
 from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with
 lanterns, and torches, and weapons.
18:4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that were coming upon
 him, went forth, and said to them, Whom seek ye?
18:5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith to them,
 I am [he]. And Judas also, who betrayed him, stood with them.
18:6 As soon then as he had said to them, I am [he], they went
 backward, and fell to the ground.
18:7 Then he asked them again, Whom seek ye? And they said,
 Jesus of Nazareth.
18:8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am [he]: If
 therefore ye seek me, let these go away:
18:9 That the saying might be fulfilled which he spoke, Of them
 whom thou gavest to me, I have lost none.
18:10 Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it, and smote the
 servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. The
 servant's name was Malchus.
18:11 Then said Jesus to Peter, Put up thy sword into the
 sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not
 drink it?
18:12 Then the band, and the captain, and officers of the Jews
 took Jesus, and bound him,
18:13 And led him away to Annas first, (for he was father-in-law
 to Caiaphas, who was the high priest that same year.)
18:14 Now Caiaphas was he who gave counsel to the Jews, that it
 was expedient that one man should die for the people.
18:15 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and [so did] another
 disciple. That disciple was known to the high priest, and went
 in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest.
18:16 But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that
 other disciple who was known to the high priest, and spoke to
 her that kept the door, and brought in Peter.
18:17 Then saith the damsel that kept the door to Peter, Art not
 thou also [one] of this man's disciples? He saith, I am not.
18:18 And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a
 fire of coals; (for it was cold) and they warmed themselves:
 and Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.
18:19 The high priest then asked Jesus concerning his disciples,
 and concerning his doctrine.
18:20 Jesus answered him, I spoke openly to the world; I ever
 taught in the synagogue and in the temple, whither the Jews
 always resort; and in secret have I said nothing.
18:21 Why dost thou ask me? ask them who heard me, what I have
 said to them: behold, they know what I have said.
18:22 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers who stood
 by, struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest
 thou the high priest so?
18:23 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear testimony
 of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?
18:24 (Now Annas had sent him bound to Caiaphas the high
 priest.)
18:25 And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said
 therefore to him, Art not thou also [one] of his disciples? He
 denied [it], and said, I am not.
18:26 One of the servants of the high priest (being the kinsman
 of him whose ear Peter cut off) saith, Did not I see thee in
 the garden with him?
18:27 Peter then denied again, and immediately the cock crowed.
18:28 Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas to the hall of judgment:
 and it was early; and they themselves went not into the
 judgment-hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might
 eat the passover.
18:29 Pilate then went out to them, and said, What accusation
 bring ye against this man?
18:30 They answered and said to him, If he were not a
 malefactor, we would not have delivered him up to thee.
18:31 Then said Pilate to them, Take ye him, and judge him
 according to your law. The Jews therefore said to him, It is
 not lawful for us to put any man to death:
18:32 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he
 spoke, signifying what death he should die.
18:33 Then Pilate entered into the judgment-hall again, and
 called Jesus, and said to him, Art thou the King of the Jews?
18:34 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing from thyself,
 or did others tell it thee concerning me?
18:35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thy own nation, and the chief
 priests, have delivered thee to me: What hast thou done?
18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my
 kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that
 I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom
 not from hence.
18:37 Pilate therefore said to him, Art thou a King then? Jesus
 answered, Thou sayest that I am a King. To this end was I born,
 and for this cause came I into the world, that I should testify
 to the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
18:38 Pilate saith to him, What is truth? And when he had said
 this, he went out again to the Jews, and saith to them, I find
 in him no fault.
18:39 But ye have a custom that I should release to you one at
 the passover: will ye therefore that I release to you the King
 of the Jews?
18:40 Then they all cried again, saying, Not this man, but
 Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
