THE CONCLUSION OF THE LAST SUPPER.
37 Luke xxii.39
"Father, I will that they also, whom "thou hast given me, be with me where "I am; that they may behold my glory, "which thou hast given me: for thou "lovedst me before the foundation of "the world. O righteous Father, the "world hath not known thee: but I 'have known thee, and these have "known that thou hast sent me. And "I have declared unto them thy name, "and will declare it: that the love "wherewith thou hast loved me may be "in them, and I in them."
When Jesus had spoken these words, 36 Mat.xxvi.30. 36 and when they had sung an hymn, "he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.
36Then said Jesus unto them, "All ye "shall be offended because of me this "night for it is written, I will smite "the shepherd, and the sheep of the
flock shall be scattered abroad. But "after I am risen again, I will go before "you into Galilee." Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I 39 Mk.xiv 30,31 never be offended. 39 And Jesus saith unto him, "Verily I say unto thee, That
this day, even in this night, before the "cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me

thrice." But Peter "spake the more Mat.xxvi.35,36. vehemently, If I should die with thee, I
will not deny thee in any wise. 40 Likewise also said all the disciples.
Then cometh Jesus "with his disciples "John xviii. 1. over the brook Cedron, "unto a place called Gethsemane, "where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his dis
ciples. And Judas also, which betrayed John xviii. 2. him, knew the place; for Jesus ofttimes
resorted thither with his disciples. 43And Lk. xxii. 40. when he was at the place, he said unto
46 Mk. xiv. 33.
"his disciples, " 43Pray that ye enter not "Mark xiv. 32. "into temptation. "Sit ye here, while "Mt.xxvi36,37 "I go and pray yonder." And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, James and John, "and began to be sorrowful and to be "very heavy. them, "My soul is even unto death:
sore amazed, and Then saith he unto exceeding sorrowful, tarry ye here, and
"watch with me." 48 And he was with- 48Lk. xxii. 41. drawn from them about a stone's cast,
and kneeled down, and fell on his face, Mt. xxvi. 39 50 and prayed that, if it were possible, the 50 Mk.xiv.35,36 hour might pass from him. And he
said, "Abba, Father, all things are pos
sible unto thee if thou be willing, 51Lk.xxii42-46
remove this cup from me : nevertheless
'not my will, but thine, be done." And
there appeared an angel unto him from

heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow, and said unto them, "Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation." 52 And 53 Mk. xiv. 37. he saith unto Peter, "53Simon, sleepest 'thou? 52 What! could ye not watch "with me one hour? Watch and Watch and pray, "that ye enter not into temptation: the "spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh "is weak." He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, “O my "Father, if this cup may not pass away "from me, except I drink it, thy will be done." 54 And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes
54 Mk. xiv 40.
were heavy,) neither wist they what to 55Mt.xxvi44,45 answer him. 55 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith 56 Mk.xiv 41,42 unto them, "56Sleep on now, and take 'your rest it is enough, the hour is
come; behold the Son of man is be
trayed into the hands of sinners. Rise 57Mt. xxvi. 46. "up, "let us be going: behold, he is at "hand that doth betray me."

'AND immediately, while he yet spake, Mark xiv. 43. behold, he that was called Judas, one 2Lk. xxii. 47. of the twelve, went thither, '(and with 3John xviii. 3. him a great multitude with lanterns and torches, and with swords and staves,) having received a band of men. and officers from the chief priests and pharisees, 'and the scribes, and the elders
of the people. Now he that betrayed Mt.xxvi 47,48 him went before them, and 'gave them
a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss,
that same is he: 'take him, 'hold him 5мk. xiv. 44. fast, and lead him away safely. And Mk. xiv. 45. as soon as he was come, he straightway
2drew near unto Jesus, and said, Hail, Mt.xxvi 49,50 Master! and kissed him. And Jesus
said unto him, "Friend, wherefore art
"thou come? Judas, betrayest thou Luke xxii.48. "the Son of man with a kiss?"

"Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, "Whom seek ye?" They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, "I am he.” (And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.) As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. 1nen asked he them again, "Whom seek ye?" And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered, "I have told you that I am
he: if therefore ye seek me, let these "go their way" that the saying might be fulfilled which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none. 10 Mt. xxvi. 50. 10Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.

"When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the 12Mt. xxvi. 51. sword? 12And, behold, one of them 13Jn. xviii. 10. which were with Jesus, Simon Peter, having a sword, 12stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off 13his right ear. The servant's name was 14Jn. xviii, 11. Malchus. "Then said Jesus unto Peter, 15Mt.xxvi 52— “Put up again 14thy sword into the "sheath: 15for all they that take the
sword shall perish with the sword.
