His Disciples' Feet
1 ¶ Now before the feast
passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart
out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in
the world, he loved them unto the end.
2 And supper being ended,
the devil having now put into the heart of
Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him;
3 Jesus knowing that the
Father had given all things into his hands,
and that he was come from God, and went to God;
4 He riseth from supper,
and laid aside his garments; and took a towel,
and girded himself.
5 After that he poureth
water into a bason, and began to wash the
disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was
6 Then cometh he to Simon
Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost
thou wash my feet?
7 Jesus answered and said
unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but
thou shalt know hereafter.
8 Peter saith unto 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 unto
him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands
and my head.
10 Jesus saith to him, He
that is washed needeth not save to wash his
feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
11 For he knew who should
betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all
12 So after he had washed
their feet, and had taken his garments, and
was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?
13 Ye call me Master and
Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.
14 If I then, your Lord
and Master, have washed your feet; ye also
ought to wash one another’s feet.
15 For I have given you
an example, that ye should do as I have done to
16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The
servant is not greater than his
lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
17 If ye know these
things, happy are ye if ye do them.
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.
19 Now I tell you before
it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may
believe that I am he.
20 Verily, verily, I say
unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send
receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
Foretells His Betrayal
21 When Jesus had thus
said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified,
and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray
22 Then the disciples
looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.
23 Now there was leaning
on Jesus’ bosom one of his disciples, whom
24 Simon Peter therefore
beckoned to him, that he should ask who it
should be of whom he spake.
25 He then lying on
Jesus’ breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?
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.
27 And after the sop
Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him,
That thou doest, do quickly.
28 Now no man at the
table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.
29 For some of them
thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had
said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast;
or, that he should give something to the poor.
30 He then having
received the sop went immediately out: and it was
31 ¶ Therefore, when
he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son
of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.
32 If God be glorified in
him, God shall also glorify him in himself,
and shall straightway glorify him.
33 Little children, yet a
little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me:
and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say
34 A new commandment I give unto you, That
ye love one another; as I
have loved you, that ye also love one another.
35 By this shall all men know that ye are
my disciples, if ye have love
one to another.
36 ¶ Simon Peter
said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus
answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou
shalt follow me afterwards.
37 Peter said unto him,
Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay
down my life for thy sake.
38 Jesus answered him,
Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily,
verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied
