John 13

1 And before the festival of the Passover, Jesus, knowing that His hour had come that He should pass·​·on out·​·of this world to the Father, having loved His·​·own who were in the world, loved them to the end.
2 And supper being ended, the Devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, of Simon, to betray Him;
3 Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come·​·forth from God and went to God,
4 rises from supper, and lays aside His garments, and taking a linen·​·cloth, girded Himself.
5 Then He pours water into the washbasin, and began to wash the feet of the disciples, and to wipe them with the linen·​·cloth with which He was girded.
6 Then He comes to Simon Peter, who says to Him, Lord, dost Thou wash my feet?
7 Jesus answered and said to him, What I do thou knowest not now, but thou shalt know after these·​·things.
8 Peter says to Him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, Unless I wash thee, thou hast no part with Me.
9 Simon Peter says to Him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
10 Jesus says to him, He who has bathed has no need except to wash the feet, but is wholly clean; and you are clean, but not all.
11 For He knew the one betraying Him; on·​·account·​·of this He said, You are not all clean.
12 When therefore He had washed their feet and had taken His garments, reclining again, He said to them, Do you know what I have done to you?
13 You call Me Teacher and Lord; and you say well, for I am.
14 If then I have washed your feet, being the Lord and the Teacher, you also ought to wash the feet of one·​·another.
15 For I have given you an example, 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, neither an apostle greater than he who sent him.
17 If you know these·​·things, happy are you if you do them.
18 I say this not about you all; I know whom I have chosen; but that the Scripture may be fulfilled: He who eats bread with Me has lifted·​·up his heel against Me1.
19 From henceforth I tell you before it come to pass, that when it has come to pass, you may believe that I am.
20 Amen, amen, I say to you, He who receives whomever I send, receives Me; and he who receives Me, receives Him who sent Me.
21 Jesus, having said these things, was disturbed in spirit and testified, and said, Amen, amen, I say to you, that one of you shall betray Me.
22 Then the disciples looked at one another, perplexed about whom He said this.
23 And there was leaning2 on Jesusbosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved.
24 Simon Peter therefore beckons to him, to inquire who it was about whom He said this.
25 And he, falling upon the chest of Jesus, says to Him, Lord, who is it?
26 Jesus answered, He it is to whom I shall give a sop, having dipped it. And having dipped the sop, He gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
27 And after the sop, Satan entered into him. Then Jesus said to him, What thou doest, do quickly.
28 But no one knew, of those sitting, why He said this to him.
29 For some thought, because Judas had the pouch, that Jesus said to him, Buy what we have need of for the festival, or that he should give something to the poor.
30 He then having received the sop went out straightway; and it was night.
31 Therefore, when he had 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 will also glorify Him in Himself, and will straightway glorify Him.
33 Little·​·children, yet a little while I am with you. You shall seek Me, and as I said to the Jews, whither I go you cannot come; so now I say to you.
34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
35 By this shall all know that you are My disciples, if you have love one to another.
36 Simon Peter says to 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 says to Him, Lord, why cannot I follow Thee now? I will lay down my soul for Thee.
38 Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy soul for Me? Amen, amen, I say to thee, The cock shall not crow till thou hast denied Me three·​·times.
