NASB — Matthew 26 — KJV

The Plot to Kill Jesus

1 aWhen Jesus had finished all these words, He said to His disciples, 2 aYou know that after two days bthe Passover is coming, and the Son of Man is [to be] chanded over for crucifixion.”

[1] aMt 7:28
[2] aMt 26:2-5: Mk 14:1, 2; Lk 22:1, 2 bJn 11:55; 13:1 cMt 10:4

3aThen the chief priests and the elders of the people were gathered together in bthe court of the high priest, named cCaiaphas; 4 and they aplotted together to seize Jesus by stealth and kill Him. 5 But they were saying, “Not during the festival, aotherwise a riot might occur among the people.”

The Precious Ointment

6aNow when Jesus was in bBethany, at the home of Simon the leper, 7 aa woman came to Him with an alabaster vial of very costly perfume, and she poured it on His head as He reclined [at the table]. 8 But the disciples were indignant when they saw [this], and said, “Why this waste? 9 For this [perfume] might have been sold for a high price and [the money] given to the poor.” 10 But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, “Why do you bother the woman? For she has done a good deed to Me. 11 For you always have athe poor with you; but you do not always have Me. 12 For when she poured this perfume on My body, she did it ato prepare Me for burial. 13 Truly I say to you, awherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be spoken of in memory of her.”

Judas’s Bargain

14aThen one of the twelve, named bJudas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15 and said, “What are you willing to give me Ito IIabetray Him to you?” And bthey weighed out thirty IIIpieces of silver to him. 16 From then on he [began] looking for a good opportunity to Ibetray IIJesus.

The Last Passover

20aNow when evening came, Jesus was reclining [at the table] with the twelve disciples. 21 As they were eating, He said, aTruly I say to you that one of you will betray Me.” 22 Being deeply grieved, they Ieach one began to say to Him, “Surely not I, Lord?” 23 And He answered, aHe who dipped his hand with Me in the bowl is the one who will betray Me. 24 The Son of Man [is to] go, ajust as it is written of Him; but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! bIt would have been good Ifor that man if he had not been born.” 25 And aJudas, who was betraying Him, said, “Surely it is not I, bRabbi?” Jesus *said to him, cYou have said [it] yourself.”

The Lord’s Supper Instituted

26aWhile they were eating, Jesus took [some] bread, and Ibafter a blessing, He broke [it] and gave [it] to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.” 27 And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave [it] to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you; 28 for athis is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for bmany for forgiveness of sins. 29 But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.”

31 ¶ Then Jesus *said to them, “You will all Iafall away because of Me this night, for it is written, ‘bI WILL STRIKE DOWN THE SHEPHERD, AND THE SHEEP OF THE FLOCK SHALL BE cSCATTERED.’ 32 But after I have been raised, aI will go ahead of you to Galilee.” 33 But Peter said to Him, “[Even] though all may Ifall away because of You, I will never fall away.” 34 Jesus said to him, aTruly I say to you that bthis [very] night, before a rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” 35 Peter *said to Him, “aEven if I have to die with You, I will not deny You.” All the disciples said the same thing too.

The Garden of Gethsemane

36aThen Jesus *came with them to a place called bGethsemane, and *said to His disciples, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” 37 And He took with Him aPeter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be grieved and distressed. 38 Then He *said to them, aMy soul is deeply grieved, to the point of death; remain here and bkeep watch with Me.”

39 ¶ And He went a little beyond [them], and fell on His face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let athis cup pass from Me; byet not as I will, but as You will.” 40 And He *came to the disciples and *found them sleeping, and *said to Peter, “So, you [men] could not akeep watch with Me for one hour? 41 aKeep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; bthe spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

42 ¶ He went away again a second time and prayed, saying, “My Father, if this acannot pass away unless I drink it, bYour will be done.” 43 Again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. 44 And He left them again, and went away and prayed a third time, saying the same thing once more. 45 Then He *came to the disciples and *said to them, IAre you still sleeping and resting? Behold, athe hour is at hand and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Get up, let us be going; behold, the one who betrays Me is at hand!”

Jesus’ Betrayal and Arrest

47aWhile He was still speaking, behold, bJudas, one of the twelve, came up Iaccompanied by a large crowd with swords and clubs, [who came] from the chief priests and elders of the people. 48 Now he who was betraying Him gave them a sign, saying, “Whomever I kiss, He is the one; seize Him.” 49 Immediately Judas went to Jesus and said, “Hail, aRabbi!” and kissed Him. 50 And Jesus said to him, aFriend, [do] what you have come for.” Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and seized Him.

[50] aMt 20:13; 22:12

51 ¶ And behold, aone of those who were with Jesus Ireached and drew out his bsword, and struck the aslave of the high priest and IIcut off his ear. 52 Then Jesus *said to him, “Put your sword back into its place; for aall those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword. 53 Or do you think that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will at once put at My disposal more than twelve Ialegions of bangels? 54 How then will athe Scriptures be fulfilled, [which say] that it must happen this way?”

Jesus before Caiaphas

57aThose who had seized Jesus led Him away to bCaiaphas, the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were gathered together. 58 But aPeter was following Him at a distance as far as the bcourtyard of the high priest, and entered in, and sat down with the Icofficers to see the outcome.

59 ¶ Now the chief priests and the whole IaCouncil kept trying to obtain false testimony against Jesus, so that they might put Him to death. 60 They did not find [any], even though many false witnesses came forward. But later on atwo came forward, 61 and said, “This man stated, ‘aI am able to destroy the Itemple of God and to rebuild it IIin three days.’” 62 The high priest stood up and said to Him, “Do You not answer? What is it that these men are testifying against You?” 63 But aJesus kept silent. bAnd the high priest said to Him, “I Icadjure You by dthe living God, that You tell us whether You are IIthe Christ, ethe Son of God.” 64 Jesus *said to him, aYou have said it [yourself]; nevertheless I tell you, Ihereafter you will see bTHE SON OF MAN SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF POWER, and cCOMING ON THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN.”

Peter’s Denials

69aNow Peter was sitting outside in the bcourtyard, and a servant-girl came to him and said, “You too were with Jesus the Galilean.” 70 But he denied [it] before them all, saying, “I do not know what you are talking about.” 71 When he had gone out to the gateway, another [servant-girl] saw him and *said to those who were there, “This man was with Jesus of Nazareth.” 72 And again he denied [it] with an oath, “I do not know the man.” 73 A little later the bystanders came up and said to Peter, “Surely you too are [one] of them; afor even the way you talk Igives you away.” 74 Then he began to curse and swear, “I do not know the man!” And immediately a rooster crowed. 75 And Peter remembered the word which Jesus had said, aBefore a rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” And he went out and wept bitterly.

The rulers conspire against Christ.

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

The woman anointeth his head.

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

Christ eateth the Passover:

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

instituteth his holy supper:

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

prayeth in the garden:

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

and being betrayed with a kiss,

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