1 BEFORE the Feast of the Passover, Jesus, knowing that the hour had come for him to pass from this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world loved them to the end.
2 During supper, the Devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray him,
3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands and that he had come from God and was going to God,
4 rose from supper and laid aside his upper garments and took a towel and put it around him.
5 Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the feet of the disciples and to wipe them with the towel he had around him.
6 He came to Simon Peter. Peter said to him, "Master, are you washing my feet?"
7 Jesus answered him, "What I am doing you do not know now; but you will know hereafter."
8 Peter said to him, "You shall never wash my feet!" Jesus answered him, "Unless I wash you, you 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 said to him, "He who has bathed has no need to be washed, except his feet, but is all clean. And you are clean, though not all."
11 For he knew the one who was going to betray him. For this reason he said, "You are not all clean."
12 When he had washed their feet and had taken his upper garments and lain down again, he said to them, "Do you know what I have done to you?
13 You call me Teacher and Master and you say rightly, for so I am.
14 If then I, the Master and Teacher, have washed your feet, you too ought to wash one another's feet.
15 For I have given you an example that you may do as I have done to you.
16 Truly, truly, I tell you, the servant is not superior to his master nor the messenger superior to him who sent him.
17 If you know these things, blessed are you \'97 if you do them.
18 I am not speaking of all of you. I know whom I have chosen. But that the Scripture may be fulfilled, 'He who is eating my bread has lifted up his heel against me.'
19 I am now telling you before it occurs that when it does occur you may believe that I am he.
20 Truly, truly, I tell you, he who receives any one whom I send receives me. He who receives me receives him who sent me."
21 After saying these things Jesus was disturbed in spirit and solemnly said to them, "Truly, truly, I tell you, one of you will betray me."
22 The disciples looked at one another wondering whom he meant.
23 One of his disciples was leaning on Jesus' breast \'97 the one Jesus loved.
24 Simon Peter nodded to him and said, "Say who it is that he is speaking of."
25 He, leaning back on the breast of Jesus, said to him, "Master, who is it?"
26 Jesus answered, "I will dip a piece of bread and give it to one. That is the man." When he had dipped the bread, he took it and gave it to Judas the son of Simon Iscariot.
27 After the piece of bread Satan entered into him. Jesus said to him, "What you are doing do quickly."
28 No one of those reclining at the table understood why he said this to him.
29 Some thought, since Judas had the purse, that Jesus was telling him, "Buy what we need for the feast," or to give something to the poor.
30 After taking the morsel Judas immediately went out. It was night.
31 When Judas had gone, Jesus said, "Now the Son of Man has been glorified and God has been glorified in him.
32 If God has been glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself and immediately will glorify him.
33 Children, yet a little while I am with you. You will look for me and, as I said to the Jews, 'Where I am going you cannot come,' so I say now to you.
34 A new command I give you, to love one another, as I have loved you \'97 that so you love one another.
35 By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love to one another."
36 Simon Peter said to him, "Master, where are you going?" Jesus answered, "Where I am going you cannot follow me now; but you will follow me later."
37 Peter said to him, "Master, why cannot I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you."
38 Jesus answered, "Will you lay down your life for me? Truly, truly, I tell you, the cock will not crow before you have disowned me three times."
