Jesus washeth the disciples' feet:
John 13:1 Before the feast of Easter when Iesus knew that hys houre was come, that he shulde depart oute of thys worlde vnto the father. When he loued his which were in the worlde, vnto the ende he loued them. John 13:2 And when supper was ended, after that the deuyl had put in the herte of Iudas Iscarioth Simons sonne, to betraye hym. John 13:3 Iesus knowyng that the father had geuen all thynges into hys handes, and that he was come from God, and went to God, John 13:4 he rose from supper, and layde asyde hys vpper garmentes, & toke a towell, and gyrde hym selfe. John 13:5 After that poured he water into a bason, & began to wash hys discyples fete, and to wype them wyth a towell, wherewith he was gyrde. John 13:6 Then came he to Symon Peter. And Peter sayde vnto hym: Lorde shalt thou washe my fete? John 13:7 Iesus aunswered, and sayed vnto him: what I do, thou wotest not nowe, but thou shalt knowe hereafter. John 13:8 Peter sayed vnto him: thou shalt not washe my fete whyle þe worlde standeth. Iesus aunswered hym: yf I washe the not, thou shalte haue no parte with me. John 13:9 Simon Peter sayed vnto him: Lord not my fete onelye: but also my handes and my heade. John 13:10 Iesus sayed vnto hym: he that is washed, neadeth not saue to washe hys fete, and is cleane euery whyt. And ye are cleane: but not al. John 13:11 For he knewe hys betrayer. Therfore sayed he: ye are not all cleane. John 13:12 After he had washed theyr fete, and receyued hys clothes, and was set doune agayne, he sayed vnto them. Wote ye what I haue done to you? John 13:13 Ye call me mayster and Lorde, & ye saye well, for so am I.
exhorteth them to humility and charity.
John 13:14 Yf I then your lord and mayster haue washed your fete, ye also ought to wash one anothers fete. John 13:15 For I haue geuen you an ensample, that ye shoulde do as I haue done to you. John 13:16 Verelye verelye I say vnto you: the seruaunte is not greater then hys mayster, neyther the messenger greater then he that sent hym. John 13:17 Yf ye vnderstande these thynges, happye are ye yf ye do then.
He foretelleth, and discovereth to John by a token, that Judas should betray him:
John 13:18 I speake not of you all. I knowe whome I haue chosen. But that þe scripture myght be fulfylled, he that eateth bread with me hath lyft vp hys hele agaynst me. John 13:19 Nowe tell I you before it come, that when it come to passe, ye myght beleue that I am he. John 13:20 Verelye verelye I saye vnto you. He that receyueth whomesoeuer I sende, receyueth me. And he that receyueth me, receyueth him that sent me. John 13:21 When Iesus had thus sayed, he was troubled in the spirite, and testifyed, saiynge: verelye verelye I saye vnto you, that one of you shall betraye me. John 13:22 And then the disciples loked one on another, doubtinge of whom he spake. John 13:23 There was one of hys disciples which leaned on Iesus bosome whome Iesus loued. John 13:24 To him beckened Simon Peter that he shuld axe who it was, of whom he spake. John 13:25 He then as he leaned on Iesus breste sayed vnto hym: Lorde who is it? John 13:26 Iesus aunswered, he it is to whom I geue a sop, when I haue depte it. And he wet a soppe, and gaue it to Iudas Iscaryoth Simons sonne. John 13:27 And after the sop Satan entred into hym. Then sayde Iesus vnto hym: that thou doest, do quickly. John 13:28 That wist no man at the table, for what intent he spake vnto hym. John 13:29 Some of them thought, because Iudas had þe bagge, that Iesus had sayed vnto hym, bye those thinges that we haue nede of agaynst the feast: or that he shoulde geue some thyng to the poore. John 13:30 Assone then as he had receyued the sop, he went immediatlye out. And it was nyght.
commandeth them to love one another:
John 13:31 When he was gone oute, Iesus sayde: nowe is the sonne of man glorifyed. And God is glorified by hym. John 13:32 Yf God be glorifyed by hym, God shall also glorifye hym in hym selfe, and shall strayghte waye glorifye hym. John 13:33 Deare chyldren, yet a lytell whyle am I with you, ye shall seke me, and as I sayde vnto the Iewes: whyther I go, thyther can ye not come. Also to you saye I now: John 13:34 A newe commaundement geue I vnto you, that ye loue together, as I haue loued you, that euen so ye loue one another. John 13:35 By thys shall all men knowe that ye are my discyples, yf ye shall haue loue one to another.
and forewarneth Peter of his denial.
John 13:36 Simon Peter sayed vnto hym. Lorde whyther goest thou? Iesus aunswered hym: Whether I go thou canste not folowe me now, but thou shalt folow me afterwarde. John 13:37 Peter sayde vnto him: lorde, why can not I folowe the now? I wyll geue my lyfe for thy sake. John 13:38 Iesus aunswered hym: wilte thou geue thy lyfe for my sake? Verelye verelye I saye vnto the, the cocke shall not crowe, tyll thou haue denyed me thryse.
