1 Jesus having perceived, before the feast of the passover, that his time to remove out of this world to his Father, was come; and having loved his own, who were in the world, he loved them to the last.
2 Now while they were at the supper, (the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him,)
3 Jesus, though he knew that the Father had subjected everything to him, and that he came from God, and was returning to God;
4 arose from supper, and laying aside his mantle, girt himself about with a towel.
5 Then he poured water into a basin, and began to wash the feet of his disciples, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was girded.
6 When he came to Simon Peter, Peter said to him, Master, would you wash my feet?
7 Jesus answered, At present you do not comprehend what I am doing; but you shall know hereafter.
8 Peter replied, You shall never wash my feet. Jesus answered, Unless I wash you, you can have no part with me.
9 Simon Peter said to him, Master, not my feet only; but also my hands and my head.
10 Jesus replied, He who has been bathing, needs only to wash his feet; the rest of his body being clean.
11 You are clean, but not all. For he knew who would betray him; therefore he said, You are not all clean.
12 After he had washed their feet, he put on his mantle, and replacing himself at table, said to them, Do you understand what I have been doing to you?
13 You call me the Teacher and the Master; and you say right; for so I am.
14 If I, then, the Master and the Teacher, have washed your feet; you also ought to wash one another's feet.
15 For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.
16 Most assuredly, I say to you, the servant is not greater than his master, nor is the apostle greater than he who sends him.
17 Happy are you, who know these things, provided you practice them.
18 «I speak not of you all. I know whom I have chosen: but the scripture must be fulfilled,'He that eats at my table, has lifted up his heel against me.'»
19 I tell you this now, before it happen; that when it happens, you may believe that I am the Messiah.
20 Most assuredly, I say to you, he that receives whomsoever I send, receives me; and he that receives me, receives him who sent me.
21 After uttering these words, Jesus was troubled in spirit, and declared, saying, Most assuredly, I say to you, one of you will betray me.
22 Then the disciples looked one upon another, doubting of whom he spoke.
23 Now one of his disciples, one whom Jesus loved, was lying close to his breast:
24 Simon Peter, therefore, made a sign to him, to inquire whom he meant.
25 He, then, reclining on Jesus' bosom, said to him, Master, who is it?
26 Jesus answered, It is he to whom I shall give this morsel, after I have dipped it. And having dipped the morsel, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
27 After receiving the morsel, Satan entered into him. And Jesus said to him, What you do, do quickly.
28 But none at the table knew, why he gave this order.
29 Some imagined, because Judas had the purse, that Jesus had signified to him to buy necessaries for the festival; or, to give something to the poor.
30 When Judas had taken the morsel, he immediately went out: and it was night.
31 When he was gone, Jesus said, the Son of Man is now glorified, and God is glorified by him.
32 If God is glorified by him, God also will glorify him by himself, and that without delay.
33 My children, I have now but a little time to be with you. You will seek me, and what I said to the Jews, Whither I go, you can not come; I say at present to you.
34 A new commandment I give you, that you love one another; that as I have loved you, you also love one another.
35 By this shall all men know, that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another.
36 Simon Peter said to him, Master, whither are you going? Jesus answered, Whither I am going, you can not follow me now; but afterward you shall follow me.
37 Peter replied, Master, why can not I follow you presently? I will lay down my life for your sake!
38 Jesus answered him, Will you lay down your life for my sake? Most assuredly, I say to you, the cock shall not crow, till you have disowned me thrice.
