Matthew 26

The rulers conspire against Christ.

Matthew 26:1 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said to his disciples, Matthew 26:2 Ye know that after two days is the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified. Matthew 26:3 Then assembled the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, in the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, Matthew 26:4 And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill [him]. Matthew 26:5 But they said, Not on the feast-[day], lest there be an uproar among the people.

The woman anointeth his head.

Matthew 26:6 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, Matthew 26:7 There came to him a woman having an alabaster-box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head as he sat [at table]. Matthew 26:8 But when his disciples saw [it], they had indignation, saying, To what purpose [is] this waste? Matthew 26:9 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor. Matthew 26:10 When Jesus understood [it], he said to them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me. Matthew 26:11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always. Matthew 26:12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did [it] for my burial. Matthew 26:13 Verily I say to you, Wherever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, [there] shall also this, which this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.

Judas selleth him.

Matthew 26:14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests, Matthew 26:15 And said, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him to you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. Matthew 26:16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.

Christ eateth the Passover:

Matthew 26:17 Now the first [day] of the [feast of] unleavened bread, the disciples came to Jesus, saying to him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover? Matthew 26:18 And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say to him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples. Matthew 26:19 And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and they made ready the passover. Matthew 26:20 Now when the evening was come, he sat down with the twelve. Matthew 26:21 And as they were eating, he said, Verily I say to you, that one of you will betray me. Matthew 26:22 And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say to him, Lord, is it I? Matthew 26:23 And he answered and said, He that dippeth [his] hand with me in the dish, the same will betray me. Matthew 26:24 The Son of man goeth, as it is written concerning him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man, if he had not been born. Matthew 26:25 Then Judas, who betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said to him, Thou hast said.

instituteth his holy supper:

Matthew 26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed [it], and broke [it], and gave [it] to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. Matthew 26:27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave [it] to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; Matthew 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sin. Matthew 26:29 But I say to you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom. Matthew 26:30 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the mount of Olives. Matthew 26:31 Then saith Jesus to 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. Matthew 26:32 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee. Matthew 26:33 Peter answered and said to him, Though all [men] shall be offended because of thee, [yet] will I never be offended. Matthew 26:34 Jesus said to him, Verily I say to thee, that this night, before the cock shall crow, thou wilt deny me thrice. Matthew 26:35 Peter said to him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.

prayeth in the garden:

Matthew 26:36 Then cometh Jesus with them to a place called Gethsemane, and saith to the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go yonder and pray. Matthew 26:37 And he took with him Peter, and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. Matthew 26:38 Then saith he to them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even to death: tarry ye here, and watch with me. Matthew 26:39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou [wilt]. Matthew 26:40 And he cometh to the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith to Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? Matthew 26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed [is] willing, but the flesh [is] weak. Matthew 26:42 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. Matthew 26:43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy. Matthew 26:44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. Matthew 26:45 Then he cometh to his disciples, and saith to them, Sleep on now, and take [your] rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Matthew 26:46 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.

and being betrayed with a kiss,

Matthew 26:47 And while he was yet speaking, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staffs, from the chief priests and elders of the people. Matthew 26:48 Now he that betrayed him, gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; hold him fast. Matthew 26:49 And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail Master; and kissed him. Matthew 26:50 And Jesus said to him, Friend, Why art thou come? Then they came, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him. Matthew 26:51 And behold, one of them, who were with Jesus, stretched out [his] hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest, and smote off his ear. Matthew 26:52 Then said Jesus to him, Put up again thy sword into its place: for all they that take the sword, shall perish by the sword. Matthew 26:53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he will presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? Matthew 26:54 But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? Matthew 26:55 In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staffs to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me. Matthew 26:56 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.

is carried to Caiaphas,

Matthew 26:57 And they that had laid hold on Jesus, led [him] away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled. Matthew 26:58 But Peter followed him at a distance, to the high priest's palace, and went in, and sat with the servants to see the end. Matthew 26:59 Now the chief priests and elders, and all the council, sought false testimony against Jesus, to put him to death; Matthew 26:60 But found none: and, though many false witnesses came, [yet] found they none. At the last came two false witnesses, Matthew 26:61 And said, This [man] said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days. Matthew 26:62 And the high priest arose, and said to him, Answerest thou nothing, what [is it which] these testify against thee? Matthew 26:63 But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said to him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou art the Christ the Son of God. Matthew 26:64 Jesus saith to him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say to you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. Matthew 26:65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy. Matthew 26:66 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death. Matthew 26:67 Then they spit in his face, and buffetted him; and others smote [him] with the palms of their hands, Matthew 26:68 Saying, Prophesy to us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?

and denied of Peter.

Matthew 26:69 Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came to him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee. Matthew 26:70 But he denied before [them] all, saying, I know not what thou sayest. Matthew 26:71 And when he had gone out into the porch, another [maid] saw him, and said to them that were there, This [man] was also with Jesus of Nazareth. Matthew 26:72 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man. Matthew 26:73 And after a while came to [him] they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art [one] of them; for thy speech betrayeth thee. Matthew 26:74 Then began he to curse and to swear, [saying], I know not the man. And immediately the cock crowed. Matthew 26:75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, who said to him, Before the cock shall crow, thou wilt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.
