Jesus washeth the disciples' feet:
John 13:1 Nowe before the feast of the Passeouer, when Iesus knewe that his houre was come, that he should depart out of this world vnto the Father, forasmuch as he loued his owne which were in the world, vnto the end he loued them. John 13:2 And when supper was done (and that the deuill had now put in the heart of Iudas Iscariot, Simons sonne, to betray him) John 13:3 Iesus knowing that the Father had giuen all things into his hands, and that he was come forth from God, and went to God, John 13:4 He riseth from supper, and layeth aside his vpper garments, and tooke a towel, and girded himselfe. John 13:5 After that, hee powred water into a basen, and began to wash the disciples feete, and to wipe them with the towell, wherewith he was girded. John 13:6 Then came he to Simon Peter, who sayd to him, Lord, doest thou wash my feete? John 13:7 Iesus answered and sayd vnto him, What I doe, thou knowest not nowe: but thou shalt knowe it hereafter. John 13:8 Peter said vnto him, Thou shalt neuer wash my feete. Iesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou shalt haue no part with me. John 13:9 Simon Peter sayd vnto him, Lord, not my feete onely, but also the hands and the head. John 13:10 Iesus sayd to him, He that is washed, needeth not, saue to wash his feete, but is cleane euery whit: and ye are cleane, but not all. John 13:11 For hee knewe who should betray him: therefore sayd he, Ye are not all cleane. John 13:12 So after he had washed their feete, and had taken his garments, and was set downe againe, he sayd vnto them, Knowe ye what I haue done to you? John 13:13 Ye call me Master, and Lorde, and ye say well: for so am I.
exhorteth them to humility and charity.
John 13:14 If I then your Lorde, and Master, haue washed your feete, ye also ought to wash one an others feete. John 13:15 For I haue giuen you an example, that ye should doe, euen as I haue done to you. John 13:16 Verely, verely I say vnto you, The seruant is not greater then his master, neither the ambassadour greater then he that sent him. John 13:17 If ye know these things, blessed are ye, if ye doe them.
He foretelleth, and discovereth to John by a token, that Judas should betray him:
John 13:18 I speake not of you all: I know whom I haue chosen: but it is that the Scripture might be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me, hath lift vp his heele against me. John 13:19 From henceforth tell I you before it come, that when it is come to passe, ye might beleeue that I am he. John 13:20 Verely, verely I say vnto you, If I send any, he that receiueth him, receiueth me, and hee that receiueth me, receiueth him that sent me. John 13:21 When Iesus had sayd these things, he was troubled in the Spirit, and testified, and said, Verely, verely I say vnto you, that one of you shall betray me. John 13:22 Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake. John 13:23 Nowe there was one of his disciples, which leaned on Iesus bosome, whom Iesus loued. John 13:24 To him beckened therefore Simon Peter, that he should aske who it was of whom he spake. John 13:25 He then, as he leaned on Iesus breast, saide vnto him, Lord, who is it? John 13:26 Iesus answered, He it is, to whome I shall giue a soppe, when I haue dipt it: and hee wet a soppe, and gaue it to Iudas Iscariot, Simons sonne. John 13:27 And after the soppe, Satan entred into him. Then sayd Iesus vnto him, That thou doest, doe quickly. John 13:28 But none of them that were at table, knew, for what cause he spake it vnto him. John 13:29 For some of them thought because Iudas had the bag, that Iesus had sayd vnto him, Buy those things that we haue neede of against ye feast: or that he should giue some thing to the poore. John 13:30 Assoone then as he had receiued the soppe, he went immediately out, and it was night.
commandeth them to love one another:
John 13:31 When hee was gone out, Iesus sayd, Nowe is the Sonne of man glorified, and God is glorified in him. John 13:32 If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorifie him in himselfe, and shal straightway glorifie him. John 13:33 Litle children, yet a litle while am I with you: ye shall seeke me, but as I sayde vnto the Iewes, Whither I goe, can ye not come: also to you say I nowe, John 13:34 A newe commaundement giue I vnto you, that ye loue one another: as I haue loued you, that ye also loue one another. John 13:35 By this shall all men knowe that ye are my disciples, if ye haue loue one to another.
and forewarneth Peter of his denial.
John 13:36 Simon Peter said vnto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Iesus answered him, Whither I goe, thou canst not follow me nowe: but thou shalt followe me afterward. John 13:37 Peter sayd vnto him, Lord, why can I not followe thee now? I will lay downe my life for thy sake. John 13:38 Iesus answered him, Wilt thou lay downe thy life for my sake? Verely, verely I say vnto thee, The cocke shall not crowe, till thou haue denied me thrise.
