WHEN Jesus had finished his prayer, they sung a hymn, and went out over the brook Kidron, into a garden called Gethsemane. When they had come into the garden, Jesus said to his disciples, "Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder." But he took with him Peter, and James, and John. Presently he began to be sorrowful and heavy at heart, and said, "My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death; tarry ye here and watch." Then he went forward about a stone's throw, and falling upon the ground, began to pray, saying, " Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me; nevertheless, not my will, but thine, be done." Then there appeared an angel from heaven, strengthening him. 

And being in agony, he prayed the more earnestly, 

"And his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground." When he had risen from prayer, he came to his disciples, and found them sleeping. Then he called to Peter, and said, "What, could ye not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." Then he went away 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." Then he came again to his disciples, and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. After this he went away the third time, and prayed, using the same words as before. On returning to his disciples, he said to 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. 

Rise, let us be going: behold he is at hand that doth betray me." 

Immediately, while Jesus was yet speaking, came Judas, the chief priests, and from the Pharisees. Judas knew where to find Jesus; for the Lord had often resorted to that place with his disciples. The men who accompanied Judas, bore lanterns, and torches, and weapons of various kinds. Now Judas had given the men a sign, saying, "Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; hold him fast."  So as soon as Judas came near, he approached Jesus, saying, "Hail, Master," and kissed him. Then Jesus said, "Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?" 

"Jesus, therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, who betrayed him, stood with them. 

"As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground. 

Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way; that the saying might be fulfilled which he spake, Of them whom thou gayest me have I lost none." "Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus and took him." "Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus." But Jesus said unto the servant, Suffer, ye thus far," and touching his ear, healed it. Then speaking to Peter, he said, " Put up thy sword into the sheath. The cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?" "Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then shall the Scriptures be fulfilled that thus it must be?" 

"Then the band, and the captain, and officers of the Jews took Jesus and bound him." But Jesus addressing the chief priests, the captains of the temple, and the elders, said, "Are ye come out as against a thief, with sword and staves, to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me, but the Scriptures must be fulfilled, and this is your hour, and the power of darkness." Then all the disciples forsook him and fled.
