. Now before this festival of the passover, as Jesus knew that his time was come that he should remove from this world to the father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the last.
When they were at supper [the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot son of Simon to deliver him up,]
Jesus knowing that the father hath given all things into his hands, and that he had come forth from God, and is going to God,
riseth from the supper and layeth aside his upper garments, and having taken a towel and girded himself,
he then poureth water into the basin and began to wash the feet of the disciples and wipe them with the towel, with which he was girded.
He cometh therefore to Simon Peter. Whereupon Peter saith to him, "Master, thou wash my feet?"!
Jesus answered and said to him, What I am doing thou dost not comprehend at present, but thou shalt know hereafter.
Peter saith to him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, Unless I wash thee thou hast no portion with me.
Simon Peter saith to him; Master, not my feet only, but also the hands and the head.
Jesus saith to him, He who hath bathed needeth only to wash the feet, the rest of the body being clean. Now you are clean, but not all,
[For he knew him who was delivering him up, therefore he said, You are not all clean.]
So when he had washed their feet and put on his garments, having again taken his place at table, he said to them, Consider what I have done to you.
You call me The teacher and the master; and you say right, for so I am.
If I then, the master and the teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash one another's feet;
for I have set you an example, that you may do as I have done to you.
Verily, verily I say to you, The servant is not greater than his master; nor is a missionary greater than he who sent him.
If you know these things, happy are you if you practise them.
I do not speak of you all. I know whom I have chosen. But that the scripture may be fulfilled, He Who is eating bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.
This I tell you now before it happeneth, that when it cometh to pass you may believe me to be what I am.
Verily, verily I say to you, He who receiveth whomsoever I shall send, receiveth me; and he who receiveth me receiveth him who sent me.
Having said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified and said, Verily, verily I say to you, that one of you is to deliver me up.
Upon this his disciples looked at one another, doubting of whom he spake.
Now one of the disciples, whom Jesus loved, was reclined at table next to Jesus.
Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him to ask who it might be of whom he spake.
Thereupon he, bending back his head to Jesus breast, saith to him, Master, who is it?
Jesus answereth, It is he to whom I will give this morsel after I have dipped it. Then, having dipped the morsel, he giveth it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.
And, after the morsel, Satan then entered into him. Therefore Jesus said to him, What thou dost, do quickly.
Now none of them at table knew for what purpose he said this to him.
For some thought, as Judas had the purse, that Jesus is saying to him, Buy what we have need of for the festival, or that he should give something to the poor.
He therefore, having received the morsel, went out immediately. Now it was night.
When he therefore was gone, Jesus saith, Now is the son of man glorified; and God is glorified by him.
If God be glorified by him, God will also glorify him in himself. Indeed without delay he will glorify him.
Children, yet a little while I am with you. You will seek me, and as I said to the Jews, whither I am going yon cannot come, so I now say to you.
A new commandment I give you, that you love one another. As I have loved you, that you also love one another.
By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you exercise mutual love.
Simon Peter saith to him, Master, whither art thou going? Jesus answered him, Whither I am going thou canst not follow me now; but here after thou wilt follow me.
Peter saith to him, Master, Why can not I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thee.
Jesus answered him, Thou wilt lay down thy life for me! Verily, verily, I say to thee, A cock will not crow till thou hast thrice denied me.
