And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee ; ?O my Father, if it be possible, 3if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless, not my will, but thine, be done. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

JUDAS ARRIVES AND BETRAYS JESUS. 183 sees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.

And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people. 3 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should 4 come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith 5 unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. As soon then as he had said unto them, 6 I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. Then 7 asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered, I have told you that 8 I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way: that the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them 9 which thou gavest me have I lost none.

Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast, and lead him away safely. And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway and drew near unto Jesus 'to kiss him, and saith, 'Hail, 'Master, master; and kissed him. 10 And Jesus said unto him,

Friend, wherefore art thou come ? " Betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss ? ? Then came they, and laid their hands on Jesus, and took him. 13 When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword ? 14 And one of them* that stood by 15 with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest, 16 and cut off his right ear. And the servant's name was Malchus. 7 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him. 18 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath : 19 for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword : 20 the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it? 21 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve

JESUS IS BOUND AND LED AWAY. legions of angels ? But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? In that same hour 'Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out as against a thief, with swords and staves ? for to take me ? 3 When I was daily with you* in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness. But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled. 5 And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body ; and the young men laid hold on him: and he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked. 1 Lu. xxii. 52. ?

And 22 when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so? Jesus answered him, If I have 23 spoken evil, bear witness of the evil : but if well, why smitest thou me? Now Annas had sent him bound unto 24 Caiaphas the high priest, 'and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes. And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest.

And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and , were set down together, Peter sat down among 3 the servants, and warmed himself at the fire, "to see the end.
