John 13

And before the feast of the passover, Jesus knew that the hour had come when he should depart from this world unto the Father. And he loved his own people, who were in the world; and he loved them unto the end. And when the supper was passed, it had been injected by Satan into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray him. And Jesus, because he knew that the Father had given all things into his hands; and that he came out from the Father, and was going to God; arose from the supper, and laid aside his long garments, and took a linen cloth, and wrapped it about his loins; and poured water into a wash-basin, and began to wash the feet of his disciples: and he wiped them with the linen cloth with which he had girded his loins. And when he came to Simon Cephas, Simon said to him: Dost thou, my Lord, wash my feet for me? Jesus answered, and said to him: What I do, thou understandest not now: but hereafter thou wilt understand. Simon Cephas said to him: Never shalt thou wash my feet. Jesus said to him: Unless I wash thee, thou hast no part with me. Simon Cephas said to him: Then, my Lord, not my feet only shalt thou wash, but also my hands and my head. 10 Jesus said to him: He that hath bathed, needeth not but to wash his feet; for he is all clean. And ye also are clean; but not all of you. 11 For Jesus knew, who would betray him: therefore he said, Ye are not all clean. 12 And when he had washed their feet, he resumed his long garments, and reclined. And he said to them: Understand ye what I have done to you? 13 Ye call me, Our Rabbi, and Our Lord; and ye speak well; for I am so. 14 If then I, your Lord and your Rabbi, have washed your feet, how much more ought ye to wash the feet of one another? 15 For I have given you this example, that ye might do, as I have done to you. 16 Verily, verily, I say to you, That no servant is greater than his lord; and no legate is greater than he who sent him. 17 If ye know these things, happy will ye be if ye do them. 18 Not of you all, do I speak: I know whom I have chosen. But that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me, hath lifted his heel against me. 19 From this time, I tell you, before it occurs, that when it shall occur, ye may know that I am he. 20 Verily, verily, I say to you: He that receiveth him whom I send, receiveth me; and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent me. 21 These things said Jesus, and he was agitated in his spirit; and he testified, and said: Verily, verily, I say to you, That one of you will betray me. 22 And the disciples stared at one another; because they knew not, of whom he spake. 23 And there was one of his disciples, who was reclining on his bosom, he whom Jesus loved; 24 to him Simon Cephas beckoned, that he should ask him, who it was of whom he spoke. 25 And that disciple fell upon the breast of Jesus, and said to him: My Lord, which is he? 26 Jesus answered and said: He it is, to whom I give the bread when I have dipped it. And Jesus dipped the bread, and gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. 27 And after the bread, then Satan entered into him. And Jesus said to him: What thou doest, do quickly. 28 And no one of those reclining, knew, wherefore he said this to him. 29 For some of them supposed, because the purse was in the hands of Judas, that Jesus expressly charged him to buy something needful for the feast, or that he should give something to the poor. 30 And Judas took the bread at once, and went out of the house. And it was night when he went out. 31 And Jesus said: Now is the Son of man glorified; and God is glorified in him. 32 And if God is glorified in him, God will glorify him in himself; and will glorify him speedily. 33 My children, a little longer I am with you; and ye will seek for me; and, as I said to the Jews, Whither I go ye cannot come, so I now say to you. 34 A new commandment I give to you, that ye be affectionate to each other. As I have loved you, do ye also love one another. 35 By this will every one know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love for each other. 36 Simon Cephas said to him: Our Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered, and said to him: Whither I go, thou canst not now come after me; but thou wilt at last come. 37 Simon Cephas said to him: My Lord, why can I not come after thee? I would lay down my life for thee. 38 Jesus said to him: Wouldst thou lay down thy life for me? Verily, verily, I say to thee, The cock will not crow, until thou hast three times denied me.
