26Matthew

1 When Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said to his disciples, The Plot to Kill Jesus Mt.26.1-5 (Jerusalem) -[ Mt.26.1-5 → ] - Mk.14.1-2, Lk.22.1-2, Jn.11.45-53 MgnEdit
2 "You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of man will be delivered up to be crucified."   MgnEdit
3 Then the chief priests and the elders of the people gathered in the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,   MgnEdit
4 and took counsel together in order to arrest Jesus by stealth and kill him.   MgnEdit
5 But they said, "Not during the feast, lest there be a tumult among the people."   MgnEdit
6 Now when Jesus was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper,

The Anointing at Bethany   Mt.26.6-13 ( Bethany ) -[ Mt.26.6-13 → ] - Mk.14.3-9, Lk.12.1-8 MgnEdit
7 a woman came up to him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on his head, as he sat at table.   MgnEdit
8 But when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, "Why this waste?   MgnEdit
9 For this ointment might have been sold for a large sum, and given to the poor."   MgnEdit
10 But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, "Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a beautiful thing to me.   MgnEdit
11 For you always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me.   MgnEdit
12 In pouring this ointment on my body she has done it to prepare me for burial.   MgnEdit
13 Truly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what she has done will be told in memory of her."   MgnEdit
14 Then one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests Judas' Agreement to Betray Jesus Mt.26.14-16 (Jerusalem) -[ Mt.26.14-16 → ] - Mk.14.10-11, Lk.22.3-6 MgnEdit
15 and said, "What will you give me if I deliver him to you?" And they paid him thirty pieces of silver.

- they paid him thirty pieces of silver. Mt.26.15 - Zch.11.12 MgnEdit
16 And from that moment he sought an opportunity to betray him.

  MgnEdit
17 Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Where will you have us prepare for you to eat the passover?" The Passover with the Disciples Mt.26.17-25 (Jerusalem) -[ Mt.26.17-25 → ] - Mk.14.12-21, Lk.22.7-14, Lk.22.21-23, Jn.13.21-30 MgnEdit
18 He said, "Go into the city to a certain one, and say to him, 'The Teacher says, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at your house with my disciples.' "   MgnEdit
19 And the disciples did as Jesus had directed them, and they prepared the passover.   MgnEdit
20 When it was evening, he sat at table with the twelve disciples;

  MgnEdit
21 and as they were eating, he said, "Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me."   MgnEdit
22 And they were very sorrowful, and began to say to him one after another, "Is it I, Lord?"   MgnEdit
23 He answered, "He who has dipped his hand in the dish with me, will betray me.   MgnEdit
24 The Son of man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born."   MgnEdit
25 Judas, who betrayed him, said, "Is it I, Master?" He said to him, "You have said so."

  MgnEdit
26 Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, "Take, eat; this is my body." The Institution of the Lord's Supper Mt.26.26-30 (Jerusalem) -[ Mt.26.26-30 → ] - Mk.14.22-25, Lk.22.14-23, 1Cor.11.23-26 MgnEdit
27 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, "Drink of it, all of you;

  MgnEdit
28 for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

  MgnEdit
29 I tell you I shall not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom."   MgnEdit
30 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.   MgnEdit
31 Then Jesus said to them, "You will all fall away because of me this night; for it is written, 'I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.'

Peter's Denial Foretold   Mt.26.31-35 ( ) -[ Mt.26.31-35 → ] - Mk.14.27-31, Lk.22.31-34, Jn.13.36-38 MgnEdit
32 But after I am raised up, I will go before you to Galilee."   MgnEdit
33 Peter declared to him, "Though they all fall away because of you, I will never fall away."   MgnEdit
34 Jesus said to him, "Truly, I say to you, this very night, before the cock crows, you will deny me three times."   MgnEdit
35 Peter said to him, "Even if I must die with you, I will not deny you." And so said all the disciples.   MgnEdit
36 Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, "Sit here, while I go yonder and pray." The Prayer in Gethsemane Mt.26.36-46 (Gethsemane) -[ Mt.26.36-46 → ] - Mk.14.32-42, Lk.22.39-46 MgnEdit
37 And taking with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful and troubled.   MgnEdit
38 Then he said to them, "My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me."   MgnEdit
39 And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, "My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will."   MgnEdit
40 And he came to the disciples and found them sleeping; and he said to Peter, "So, could you not watch with me one hour?

  MgnEdit
41 Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."

  MgnEdit
42 Again, for the second time, he went away and prayed, "My Father, if this cannot pass unless I drink it, your will be done."

  MgnEdit
43 And again he came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy.   MgnEdit
44 So, leaving them again, he went away and prayed for the third time, saying the same words.   MgnEdit
45 Then he came to the disciples and said to them, "Are you still sleeping and taking your rest? Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

  MgnEdit
46 Rise, let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand."   MgnEdit
47 While he was still speaking, Judas came, one of the twelve, and with him a great crowd with swords and clubs, from the chief priests and the elders of the people.

The Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus   Mt.26.47-56 ( Gethsemane ) -[ Mt.26.47-56 → ] - Mk.14.43-50, Lk.22.47-53, Jn.18.3-12 MgnEdit
48 Now the betrayer had given them a sign, saying, "The one I shall kiss is the man; seize him."   MgnEdit
49 And he came up to Jesus at once and said, "Hail, Master!" And he kissed him.

  MgnEdit
50 Jesus said to him, "Friend, why are you here?" Then they came up and laid hands on Jesus and seized him.

  MgnEdit
51 And behold, one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his sword, and struck the slave of the high priest, and cut off his ear.

  MgnEdit
52 Then Jesus said to him, "Put your sword back into its place; for all who take the sword will perish by the sword.   MgnEdit
53 Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels?   MgnEdit
54 But how then should the scriptures be fulfilled, that it must be so?"   MgnEdit
55 At that hour Jesus said to the crowds, "Have you come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs to capture me? Day after day I sat in the temple teaching, and you did not seize me.

  MgnEdit
56 But all this has taken place, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled." Then all the disciples forsook him and fled.   MgnEdit
57 Then those who had seized Jesus led him to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders had gathered. Jesus before the Council Mt.26.57-68 (Jerusalem) -[ Mt.26.57-68 → ] - Mk.14.53-65, Lk.22.54-55, Jn.18.13-14, Jn.18.19-24 MgnEdit
58 But Peter followed him at a distance, as far as the courtyard of the high priest, and going inside he sat with the guards to see the end.   MgnEdit
59 Now the chief priests and the whole council sought false testimony against Jesus that they might put him to death,

  MgnEdit
60 but they found none, though many false witnesses came forward. At last two came forward   MgnEdit
61 and said, "This fellow said, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.' "   MgnEdit
62 And the high priest stood up and said, "Have you no answer to make? What is it that these men testify against you?"

  MgnEdit
63 But Jesus was silent. And the high priest said to him, "I adjure you by the living God, tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God."   MgnEdit
64 Jesus said to him, "You have said so. But I tell you, hereafter you will see the Son of man seated at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heaven."

- hereafter you will see the Son of man Mt.26.64 - Ps.110.1, Dn.7.13 MgnEdit
65 Then the high priest tore his robes, and said, "He has uttered blasphemy. Why do we still need witnesses? You have now heard his blasphemy.

  MgnEdit
66 What is your judgment?" They answered, "He deserves death."   MgnEdit
67 Then they spat in his face, and struck him; and some slapped him,

  MgnEdit
68 saying, "Prophesy to us, you Christ! Who is it that struck you?"   MgnEdit
69 Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard. And a maid came up to him, and said, "You also were with Jesus the Galilean." Peter's Denial of Jesus Mt.26.69-75 (Jerusalem) -[ Mt.26.69-75 → ] - Mk.14.66-72, Lk.22.56-62, Jn.18.15-18, Jn.18.25-27 MgnEdit
70 But he denied it before them all, saying, "I do not know what you mean."   MgnEdit
71 And when he went out to the porch, another maid saw him, and she said to the bystanders, "This man was with Jesus of Nazareth."   MgnEdit
72 And again he denied it with an oath, "I do not know the man."   MgnEdit
73 After a little while the bystanders came up and said to Peter, "Certainly you are also one of them, for your accent betrays you."

  MgnEdit
74 Then he began to invoke a curse on himself and to swear, "I do not know the man." And immediately the cock crowed.   MgnEdit
75 And Peter remembered the saying of Jesus, "Before the cock crows, you will deny me three times." And he went out and wept bitterly.   MgnEdit

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background.
