1 NOW before the feast of petscha, Jeshu knew that his hour was come, and that he should pass from this world unto his Father, and he had loved his who were in this world, and unto the end he had loved them.
2 And when was the supper, Satana had cast it into the heart of Jihuda bar Shemun Scarjuta to betray him.
3 But Jeshu himself, because he knew that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that from Aloha he had come forth, and unto Aloha he was going,
4 riseth from supper, and setteth his garments apart, and took a towel, (and) bound (it) upon his loins;
5 and he poured water into a basin, and began to wash the feet of his disciples, and wiped (them) with the towel that he had bound upon his loins.
6 But when he came to Shemun Kipha, Shemun said to him, Dost thou, my Lord, wash my feet for me?
7 Jeshu answered and said to him, What I do, thou knowest not now; but afterward thou shalt know.
8 Shemun Kipha saith to him, Never shalt thou wash for me my feet. Jeshu saith to him, If I do not wash thee, thou hast with me no part.
9 Shemun Kipha saith to him, Then, my Lord, not only my feet shalt thou wash for me, but also my hands, also my head.
10 Jeshu saith, He that hath bathed needeth not but his feet only to wash, for all of him he hath cleansed: also you are clean, but not all of you.
11 For Jeshu knew who was betraying him; therefore he said, Ye are not all of you clean.
12 But when he had washed their feet, he took up his garments and reclined, and said to them, Know you what I have done for you?
13 You call me Our Master, and Our Lord; and well say you, for I am.
14 If I then, your Lord and your Master, have washed for you your feet, how much more ought you to wash the feet of one another?
15 For this pattern have I given you, that as I have done to you, you also should do.
16 Amen, amen, I say to you, The servant is not greater than his lord; nor (is) the apostle greater than he who sent him.
17 If these you know, happy are you if you do them.
18 Not of all of you do I speak; for I know those whom I have chosen; but that the scripture might be fulfilled, that he who eateth bread with me hath lifted against me his heel.
19 Now I tell you before it shall be, that when it is done you may believe that I am.
20 Amen, amen, I say to you, Whoever receiveth him whom I send receiveth me; and whoever receiveth me receiveth him who sent me.
21 These said Jeshu, and was agitated in his spirit, and testified, and said, Amen, amen, I say to you, That one of you shall betray me.
22 But the disciples looked one on the other, because they knew not concerning whom he spake.
23 Now there was of his disciples one who reclined on his bosom; he whom Jeshu loved.
24 To this signed Shemun Kipha that he would ask of whom it was that he spake.
25 And that disciple fell upon the bosom of Jeshu, and said to him, My Lord, who is this?
26 Jeshu answered and said to him, He to whom I give the dipped bread. And Jeshu dipped the bread and gave it to Jihuda bar Shemun Scarjuta.
27 Then after the bread Satana entered into him. And Jeshu said to him, What thou doest, do with speed!
28 But this no man knew of those who reclined of what he spake to him.
29 For some of them thought that as Jihuda had the purse, he had instructed him to buy something that should be required at the feast, or that he should give somewhat to the poor.
30 But he, Jihuda, received the bread and immediately went out: and it was night when he went out.
31 AND Jeshu said, Now is glorified the Son of man, and Aloha is glorified in him.
32 And if Aloha is glorified in him, Aloha shall glorify him in himself, and at once doth glorify him.
33 My sons, a little longer I am with you, and you will seek me; and, as I said to the Jihudoyee, Whither I go you cannot come, so to you say I now.
34 A new commandment give I to you, that you should love one another; as I have loved you, so do you also love one another.
35 By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if love be in you one for another.
36 Shemun Kipha said to him, Our Lord, whither goest thou? Jeshu said to him, Whither I go, thou canst not now come after me; but at the last thou shalt come.
37 Shemun Kipha saith to him, My Lord, why cannot I come after thee now? My life for thee lay I down.
38 Jeshu saith to him, Dost thou lay down thy life for me! Amen, amen, I tell thee, That the cock will not crow, until thou shalt have denied me three times.
