Jesus washes his disciples' feet

1 Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

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

After supper, before the feast of the passover,

the devil was put in Judas Iscariot's heart.

3Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;

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

Jesus took off his clothes, [1]

and wrapped a towel around his waist.

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

He poured water into a bowl

and began to wash his disciples feet.

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

When Jesus came to Peter, he said,

Are you going to wash my feet, Lord?

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

Jesus said,

You don't know now, but you'll know later.

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

Peter said,

You'll never wash my feet.

Jesus said,

If I don't wash your feet, you won't be with me.

9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.

Peter said,

Okay, but wash my hands and my head, too.

10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

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

Jesus said,

If you're clean, you only need your feet washed.

And you're all clean. Well, most of you anyway.

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

When Jesus was finished, he put his clothes back on, and said,

Do you know what I just did?

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

You call me Master and Lord. And I am.

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

If I, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet,

You ought to wash one another's feet.

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

16 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.

17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

I've set an example for you.

Judas betrays Jesus

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

Scripture will be fulfilled, which says, [2]

Someone who is eating with me

has lifted up his heel against me.

19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.

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

I'm telling you this before it happens,

so that when it happens, you'll believe I'm he.

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

One of you will betray me.

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

The disciples looked at each other, wondering who it was.

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

The disciple that Jesus loved was leaning on Jesus's breast. [3]

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

Peter asked him to ask Jesus who it was.

25He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?

So the disciple lying on Jesus's breast said to him,

Who is it?

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

Jesus said,

It's the one that I give this piece of bread to after I dip it in the sauce.

And he gave the piece of bread to Judas Iscariot.

27 And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That 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 Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.

After supper, Satan entered into Judas. [4]

And Jesus said to him,

Do what you're going to do quickly.

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

31 Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.

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

33 Little children, yet 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.

When Judas had left, Jesus said,

Now the Son of man will be glorified,

and God will be glorified in him.

A new commandment: Love one another

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

I give you a new commandment:

Love one another, as I have loved you.

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

If you love each other,

everyone will know you're my disciples. [5]

Peter's promise (and Jesus's prediction)

36Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.

Simon Peter said,

Lord, where are you going? [6]

Jesus said,

I'm going where you can't go.

But you'll follow me afterwards.

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

Peter said,

Why can't I follow you?

I'll die for you.

38 Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice.

Jesus said,

Before the cock crows, you'll deny me three times. [7]
