1 And the Festival of Matstsoth drew near, which is called Pesaḥ.
2 And the chief kohenim and the scribes were seeking how to kill Him, for they feared the people.
3 And Satan entered into Yahuḏah, who was called of Qeriyoth, who was numbered among the twelve.
4 And he went and spoke with the chief kohenim and captains, how he might deliver Him up to them.
5 And they were glad, and agreed to give him silver.
6 And he promised, and was seeking an occasion to deliver Him up to them, away from the crowd.
7 And the Day of Matstsoth came when the Pesaḥ had to be slaughtered.
8 And He sent Kĕpha and Yoḥanan, saying, “Go and prepare the Pesaḥ for us to eat.”
9 And they said to Him, “Where do You want us to prepare?”
10 And He said to them, “See, as you enter into the city, a man shall meet you carrying a jar of water. Follow him into the house he enters.
11 “And you shall say to the master of the house, ‘The Teacher says to you, “Where is the guest room where I might eat the Pesaḥ with My talmidim?” ’
12 “And he shall show you a large, furnished upper room. Prepare it there.”
13 And going they found it as He had said to them, and they prepared the Pesaḥ.
14 And when the hour had come, He sat down, and the twelve emissaries with Him.
15 And He said to them, “With desire I have desired to eat this Pesaḥ with you before My suffering,
16 for I say to you, I shall certainly not eat of it again until it is filled in the reign of Elohim.”
17 And taking the cup, giving thanks, He said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves,
18 for I say to you, I shall certainly not drink of the fruit of the vine until the reign of Elohim comes.”
19 And taking bread, giving thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you, do this in remembrance of Me.”
20 Likewise the cup also, after supper, saying, “This cup is the Renewed Covenant in My blood which is shed for you.
21 “But see, the hand of him delivering Me up is with Me on the table.
22 “For indeed the Bĕn of Aḏam goes as it has been decreed, but woe to that man by whom He is delivered up!”
23 And they began to ask among themselves, which of them it could be who was about to do this.
24 And there also took place a dispute among them, as to which of them seemed to be greater.
25 And He said to them, “The sovereigns of the gentiles rule over them, and those who control them are called ‘workers of good.’
26 “But not so with you, but let him who is greatest among you be as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves.
27 “For who is greater, the one who sits at the table, or the one who serves? Is it not the one who sits at the table? But I am in your midst as the One who serves.
28 “But you are those who have remained with Me in My trials.
29 “And I covenant for you, as My Father covenanted for Me, a reign,
30 to eat and drink at My table, in My reign, and to sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Yisra’ĕl.”
31 And the Aḏon said, “Shim’on, Shim’on! See, Satan has asked for you to sift as wheat.
32 “But I have prayed for you, that your belief should not fail. And when you have turned, strengthen your brothers.”
33 And he said to Him, “Aḏonai, I am prepared to go with You, both to prison and to death.”
34 And He said, “I say to you, Kĕpha, the cock shall not crow at all today until you have denied three times that you know Me.”
35 And He said to them, “When I sent you without purse and bag and sandals, did you lack any?” And they said, “None at all.”
36 And He said to them, “But now, let him who has a purse take it, likewise also a bag. And let him who has no sword sell his garment and buy one.
37 “For I say to you that what has been written has yet to be accomplished in Me, ‘And He was reckoned with lawless ones.’ For that which refers to Me has an end too.”
38 And they said, “Aḏonai, look, here are two swords.” But He said to them, “That is enough.”
39 And coming out, He went to the Mount of Olives, according to usage, and His talmidim also followed Him.
40 And coming to the place, He said to them, “Pray that you do not enter into trial.”
41 And He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and falling on His knees He was praying,
42 saying, “Father, if it be Your counsel, remove this cup from Me. Yet not My desire, but let Yours be done.”
43 And there appeared a messenger from shamayim to Him, strengthening Him.
44 And being in agony, He was praying more earnestly. And His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
45 And rising up from prayer, and coming to His talmidim, He found them sleeping from grief.
46 And He said to them, “Why do you sleep? Rise and pray, lest you enter into trial.”
47 And while He was still speaking, see: a crowd! And he who was called Yahuḏah, one of the twelve, was going before them and came near to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 to kiss Him.
48 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 said to him, “Yahuḏah, do you deliver up the Bĕn of Aḏam with a kiss?”
49 And those around Him, seeing what was about to take place, said to Him, “Aḏonai, shall we strike with the sword?”
50 And one of them struck the servant of the kohĕn ha’gadol and cut off his right ear.
51 But 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 answering, said, “Allow it this far.” And touching his ear He healed him.
52 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 said to those who had come against Him, the chief kohenim and captains of the Miqdash and the elders, “Have you come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs?
53 “While I was with you daily in the Miqdash, you did not lay hands on Me. But this is your hour and the authority of darkness.”
54 And having seized Him, they led Him and brought Him to the house of the kohĕn ha’gadol. And Kĕpha was following at a distance.
55 And when they had lit a fire in the midst of the courtyard, and sat down together, Kĕpha sat among them.
56 And a certain servant girl, seeing him as he sat by the fire, looked intently at him and said, “And this one was with Him.”
57 But he denied Him, saying, “Woman, I do not know Him.”
58 And after a little while another saw him and said, “You are one of them too.” But Kĕpha said, “Man, I am not!”
59 And about an hour later, another insisted, saying, “Truly, this one was with Him too, for he is a Galilean too.”
60 But Kĕpha said, “Man, I do not know what you are saying!” And immediately, while he was still speaking, a cock crowed.
61 And the Aḏon turned and looked at Kĕpha, and Kĕpha remembered the word of the Aḏon, how He had said to him, “Before a cock crows, you shall deny Me three times.”
62 And Kĕpha went out and wept bitterly.
63 And the men who were holding 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 were mocking Him, beating Him.
64 And having blindfolded Him, they were striking Him on the face and were asking Him, saying, “Naḇa! Who is it that struck You?”
65 And they said to Him much more, blaspheming.
66 And when it became day, the elders of the people, both chief kohenim and scribes, came together and they led Him into their council, saying,
67 “If You are ha’Mashiaḥ, say it to us.” And He said to them, “If I say to you, you would not believe it at all,
68 and if I asked you, you would not answer Me at all.
69 “From now on the Bĕn of Aḏam shall sit on the right hand of the Almighty 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.”
70 And they all said, “You then, are the Bĕn of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄?” And He said to them, “You say that I am.”
71 And they said, “Why do we need further witness? For we heard it ourselves from His mouth.”
