And before the feast of the passover, Jesus knowing that his
hour hath come, that he may remove out of this world unto the Father, having
loved his own who are in the world -- to the end he loved them.
And supper being come, the devil already having put it
into the heart of Judas of Simon, Iscariot, that he may deliver him up,
Jesus knowing that all things the Father hath given to him
-- into his hands, and that from God he came forth, and unto God he
doth rise from the supper, and doth lay down his garments,
and having taken a towel, he girded himself;
afterward he putteth water into the basin, and began to wash
the feet of his disciples, and to wipe with the towel with which he was being
He cometh, therefore, unto Simon Peter, and that one saith
to him, 'Sir, thou -- dost thou wash my feet?'
Jesus answered and said to him, 'That which I do thou hast
not known now, but thou shalt know after these things;'
Peter saith to him, 'Thou mayest not wash my feet -- to the
age.' Jesus answered him, 'If I may not wash thee, thou hast no part with me;'
Simon Peter saith to him, 'Sir, not my feet only, but also
the hands and the head.'
Jesus saith to him, 'He who hath been bathed hath no need
save to wash his feet, but he is clean altogether; and ye are clean, but not
for he knew him who is delivering him up; because of this he
said, 'Ye are not all clean.'
When, therefore, he washed their feet, and took his
garments, having reclined (at meat) again, he said to them, 'Do ye know what I
have done to you?
ye call me, The Teacher and The Lord, and ye say well, for I
if then I did wash your feet -- the Lord and the Teacher --
ye also ought to wash one another's feet.
'For an example I gave to you, that, according as I did to
you, ye also may do;
verily, verily, I say to you, a servant is not greater than
his lord, nor an apostle greater than he who sent him;
if these things ye have known, happy are ye, if ye may do
not concerning you all do I speak; I have known whom I chose
for myself; but that the Writing may be fulfilled: He who is eating the bread with
me, did lift up against me his heel.
'From this time I tell you, before its coming to pass, that,
when it may come to pass, ye may believe that I am he;
verily, verily, I say to you, he who is receiving whomsoever
I may send, doth receive me; and he who is receiving me, doth receive Him who
These things having said, Jesus was troubled in the spirit,
and did testify, and said, 'Verily, verily, I say to you, that one of you will deliver
the disciples were looking, therefore, one at another,
doubting concerning whom he speaketh.
And there was one of his disciples reclining (at meat) in
the bosom of Jesus, whom Jesus was loving;
Simon Peter, then, doth beckon to this one, to inquire who
he may be concerning whom he speaketh,
and that one having leant back on the breast of Jesus,
respondeth to him, 'Sir, who is it?'
Jesus answereth, 'That one it is to whom I, having dipped
the morsel, shall give it;' and having dipped the morsel, he giveth it
to Judas of Simon, Iscariot.
And after the morsel, then the Adversary entered into that
one, Jesus, therefore, saith to him, 'What thou dost -- do quickly;'
and none of those reclining at meat knew for what intent he
said this to him,
for certain were thinking, since Judas had the bag, that
Jesus saith to him, 'Buy what we have need of for the feast;' or that he may
give something to the poor;
having received, therefore, the morsel, that one immediately
went forth, and it was night.
When, therefore, he went forth, Jesus saith, 'Now was the
Son of Man glorified, and God was glorified in him;
if God was glorified in him, God also will glorify him in
Himself; yea, immediately He will glorify him.
'Little children, yet a little am I with you; ye will seek
me, and, according as I said to the Jews -- Whither I go away, ye are not able
to come, to you also I do say it now.
'A new commandment I give to you, that ye love one another;
according as I did love you, that ye also love one another;
in this shall all know that ye are my disciples, if ye may
have love one to another.'
Simon Peter saith to him, 'Sir, whither dost thou go away?'
Jesus answered him, 'Whither I go away, thou art not able now to follow me, but
afterward thou shalt follow me.'
Peter saith to him, 'Sir, wherefore am I not able to follow
thee now? my life for thee I will lay down;'
Jesus answered him, 'Thy life for me thou wilt lay down!
verily, verily, I say to thee, a cock will not crow till thou mayest deny me
