Luke 22:36 Then said he to them, 'But, now, he who is having a bag, let him take [it] up, and in like manner also a scrip; and he who is not having, let him sell his garment, and buy a sword, Luke 22:37 for I say to you, that yet this that hath been written it behoveth to be fulfilled in me: And with lawless ones he was reckoned, for also the things concerning me have an end.' Luke 22:38 And they said, 'Sir, lo, here [are] two swords;' and he said to them, 'It is sufficient.'

Luke 22:50 And a certain one of them smote the servant of the chief priest, and took off his right ear, Luke 22:51 and Jesus answering said, 'Suffer ye thus far,' and having touched his ear, he healed him.
