Matthew 26 : 36 - 46

Chapter 26

36Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples, "Sit here while I go and pray over there."
37And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed.
38Then He said to them, "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me."
39He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, "O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will."
40Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, "What! Could you not watch with Me one hour?
41Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak."
42Again, a second time, He went away and prayed, saying, "O My Father, if this cup cannot pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done."
43And He came and found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy.
44So He left them, went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
45Then He came to His disciples and said to them, "Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.
46Rise, let us be going. See, My betrayer is at hand."
