João 13

1 And before the feast of the passover, Jesus knowing that his hour has 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.

2 And supper being come, the devil already having put it into the heart of Judas of Simon, Iscariot, that he may deliver him up,

3 Jesus knowing that all things the Father has given to him -- into his hands, and that from God he came forth, and unto God he goes,

4 does rise from the supper, and does lay down his garments, and having taken a towel, he girded himself;

5 afterward he putts water into the basin, and began to wash the feet of his disciples, and to wipe with the towel with which he was being girded.

6 He comes, therefore, unto Simon Peter, and that one said to him, 'Sir, you -- do you wash my feet?'

7 Jesus answered and said to him, 'That which I do you have not known now, but you shall know after these things;'

8 Peter said to him, 'You may not wash my feet -- to the age.' Jesus answered him, 'If I may not wash you, you have no part with me;'

9 Simon Peter said to him, 'Sir, not my feet only, but also the hands and the head.'

10 Jesus said to him, 'He who has been bathed has no need save to wash his feet, but he is clean altogether; and you are clean, but not all;'

11 for he knew him who is delivering him up; because of this he said, 'You are not all clean.'

12 When, therefore, he washed their feet, and took his garments, having reclined (at meat) again, he said to them, 'Do you know what I have done to you?

13 you call me, The Teacher and The Lord, and you say well, for I am;

14 if then I did wash your feet -- the Lord and the Teacher -- you also ought to wash one another's feet.

15 'For an example I gave to you, that, according as I did to you, you also may do;

16 verily, verily, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his lord, nor an apostle greater than he who sent him;

17 if these things you have known, happy are you, if you may do them;

18 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.

19 'From this time I tell you, before its coming to pass, that, when it may come to pass, you may believe that I amhe;

20 verily, verily, I say to you, he who is receiving whomsoever I may send, does receive me; and he who is receiving me, does receive Him who sent me.'

21 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 me up;'

22 the disciples were looking, therefore, one at another, doubting concerning whom he speaks.

23 And there was one of his disciples reclining (at meat) in the bosom of Jesus, whom Jesus was loving;

24 Simon Peter, then, does beckon to this one, to inquire who he may be concerning whom he speaks,

25 and that one having leant back on the breast of Jesus, responds to him, 'Sir, who is it?'

26 Jesus answers, 'That one it is to whom I, having dipped the morsel, shall give it;' and having dipped the morsel, he gives it to Judas of Simon, Iscariot.

27 And after the morsel, then the Adversary entered into that one, Jesus, therefore, said to him, 'What you do -- do quickly;'

28 and none of those reclining at meat knew for what intent he said this to him,

29 for certain were thinking, since Judas had the bag, that Jesus said to him, 'Buy what we have need of for the feast;' or that he may give something to the poor;

30 having received, therefore, the morsel, that one immediately went forth, and it was night.

31 When, therefore, he went forth, Jesus said, 'Now was the Son of Man glorified, and God was glorified in him;

32 if God was glorified in him, God also will glorify him in Himself; yea, immediately He will glorify him.

33 'Little children, yet a little am I with you; you will seek me, and, according as I said to the Jews -- Whither I go away, you are not able to come, to you also I do sayit now.

34 'A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; according as I did love you, that you also love one another;

35 in this shall all know that you are my disciples, if you may have love one to another.'

36 Simon Peter said to him, 'Sir, whither do you go away?' Jesus answered him, 'Whither I go away, you art not able now to follow me, but afterward you shall follow me.'

37 Peter said to him, 'Sir, therefore am I not able to follow you now? my life for you I will lay down;'

38 Jesus answered him, 'Your life for me you will lay down! verily, verily, I say to you, a cock will not crow till you may deny me thrice.'
