John 13 ©

1Jesus washeth his disciples' feet, and exhorteth them to follow his example of humility and charity: 18he foretelleth the treachery of Judas, and pointeth him out to John by a token: 31he speaketh of his glorification as near at hand, and commandeth his disciples to love one another: 36he forewarneth Peter that he shall thrice deny him.

1

NOW abefore the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that bhis hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, chaving loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

2

And dsupper being ended, ethe devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;

d v.4,26.
3

Jesus knowing that fthe Father had given all things into his hands, and that ghe was come from God, and went to God;

4

He hriseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and *girded himself.

5

After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to iwash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was *girded.

6

Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and 1Peter saith unto him, Lord, jdost thou wash my feet?

7

Jesus answered and said unto him, kWhat I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.

k v.12. ch. 14.26; 12.16.
8

Peter saith unto him, lThou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, mIf I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.

9

Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, nnot my feet only, but also my hands and my head.

10

Jesus saith to him, He that is owashed needeth not *save to wash his feet, but is clean *every whit: and pye are clean, but not all.

p ch. 6.64,70,71; 17.12. v.18,21,26.
11

For qhe knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.

q ch. 6.64.
12

So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, rKnow ye what I have done to you?

13

sYe call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.

14

tIf I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; uye also ought to wash one another's feet.

15

For I have given you an example, vthat ye should do as I have done to you.

16

w*Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.

w Mat. 10.24. Lu. 6.40. ch. 15.20.
17

xIf ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

18

yI speak not of you all: zI know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, aHe that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.

y v.10,11.
z 2Ti. 2.19. ch. 17.12.

2Now bI tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that cI am he.

c ch. 8.24.
20

d*Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

21

When Jesus had thus said, ehe was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, f*Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.

22

gThen the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.

23

Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom hJesus loved.

24

Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake.

25

He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?

26

Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a 3sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, ihe gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.

27

And after the sop jSatan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, kThat thou doest, do quickly.

28

Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.

29

For some of them thought, because lJudas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of magainst the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.

l ch. 12.6.
m v.1.
30

He then having received the sop nwent immediately out: and it was night.

31

¶Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, oNow is the Son of man glorified, and pGod is glorified in him.

o Ps. 40.8. ch. 7.39; 18.11. Col. 2.14,15. He. 2.10,14. ch. 21.19; 12.23,28; 17.1-6. Lu. 2.14.
32

qIf God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him.

33

Little children, ryet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.

34

sA new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

35

tBy this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

36

¶Simon Peter said unto him, uLord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; vbut thou shalt follow me afterwards.

v v.33. ch. 21.18,19. 2Pe. 1.14.
37

Peter said unto him, Lord, wwhy cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.

38

Jesus answered him, xWilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? *Verily, verily, I say unto thee, yThe cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me zthrice.
