Jesus Washes the Disciples' Feet1But before the holiday feast of the passover, Jesus knew that [3has come 1his 2hour], that he should cross over out of this world to the father, having loved his own, of the ones in the world -- unto the end he loved them. 2And supper taking place, the devil already casting into the heart of Judas son of Simon Iscariot, that he should deliver him up; 3Jesus knowing that [5all 3had given 4to him 1the 2father], into his hands, and that from God he came forth, and to God he goes; 4he rises from the supper, and he puts aside his garments. And having taken a linen towel he girded up himself. 5Then he throws water into the washpot, and began to wash the feet of the disciples, and to wipe them clean with the linen towel in which he was girding himself up. 6He comes then to Simon Peter; and [2says 3to him 1that one], O Lord, do you wash my feet? 7Jesus answered and said to him, What I do, you know not just now, but you shall know after these things. 8[2says 3to him 1Peter], In no way should you wash my feet into the eon. [2responded 3to him 1Jesus], Unless I should wash you, you have no part with me. 9[3says 4to him 1Simon 2Peter], O Lord, not my feet only, but also the hands and the head. 10[2says 3to him 1Jesus], The one being bathed [2no 3other need 1has] than [2the 3feet 1to wash], but is clean entirely; and you are clean, but not all. 11For he knew the one delivering him up; on account of this he said, Not all are clean. 12When therefore he washed their feet, and took his garments, having reclined again, he said to them, Do you know what I have done to you? 13You call me, The teacher, and, The Lord; and well you speak, for I am. 14If then, I washed your feet, being the Lord and the teacher, even you ought [2one another's 1to wash] feet. 15[4an example 1For 2I gave 3to you], that as I did to you, also you should do. 16Amen, amen, I say to you, [3not 2is 1A servant] greater than his master; nor an apostle greater than the one having sent him. 17If these things you know, blessed are you if you should do them. 18Not concerning all of you I speak. I know whom I chose, but that the scripture should be fulfilled, The one chewing [2with 3me 1bread] lifts [2against 3me 1his heel]. 19From just now I tell it to you before it takes place, that whenever it takes place you should believe that I am he. 20Amen, amen, I say to you, the one receiving whomsoever I shall send, receives me; and the one receiving me, receives the one having sent me. 21These things having said, Jesus was disturbed in the spirit, and testified and said, Amen, amen, I say to you, That one of you shall deliver me up. 22[4looked 1Then 5at 6one another 2the 3disciples], being perplexed concerning what he says. 23[4was 1And 5reclining 2one 3of his disciples] at the bosom of Jesus, whom Jesus loved. 24[4nodded 1Then 5to this one 2Simon 3Peter] to inquire about who it may be concerning of whom he speaks. 25[3having fallen 1And 2that one] upon the breast of Jesus, says to him, O Lord, who is it? 26Jesus answers, That one is to whom I having dipped the morsel shall give it. And having dipped the morsel, he gives it to Judas son of Simon Iscariot. 27And after the morsel, then [2entered 3into 4that one 1Satan]. [2says 3then 4to him 1Jesus], What you do, do more quickly! 28[4this 1But 2no one 3knew] of the ones reclining about what he said to him. 29For some thought, since [3the 4money container 2had 1Judas], that [2says 3to him 1Jesus], Buy what [2need 1we have] for the holiday feast; or, [3to the 4poor 1that 2he should give something]. 30Having taken then the morsel, that one immediately went forth; and it was night.
A New Commandment31When he went forth, Jesus says, Now [4was glorified 1the 2son 3of man], and God was glorified in him. 32If God was glorified in him, also God shall glorify him in himself, and straightway shall glorify him. 33Sons, still a little while [2with 3you 1I am]. You will seek me, and as I said to the Jews that, Where I go, you will not be able to come; and to you I speak just now. 34[2commandment 1A new] I give to you, that you love one another! as I loved you, that also you love one another! 35In this all shall know that [2my 3disciples 1you are], if [2love 1you should have] among one another. 36[3says 4to him 1Simon 2Peter], O Lord, where do you go? [2answered 3to him 1Jesus], Where I go, you are not able [2me 3now 1to follow]; but afterwards you shall follow me. 37[2says 3to him 1Peter], O Lord, why am I not able to follow you just now? [2my life 3for 4you 1I will put]. 38[2answered 3to him 1Jesus], [2your life 3for 4me 1Shall you place]? Amen, amen, I say to you, In no way the rooster shall call out, until of which you shall totally reject me three times.
