John 13
Literal Emphasis Translation Par ▾ 
1And before the feast of the Passover, Jesus knowing that His hour had come, so that He should depart from out of this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them unto the end. 2And supper happening, the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, that he should betray (deliver/hand over) Him, 3[Jesus] Knowing that the Father has given Him all things into His hands and that He came out from God and He is going to God, 4He rises from the supper and lays aside His outer garments and having taken a towel He girded Himself.

5Next He pours water into the basin and began to wash the feet of the disciples and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded, 6He comes then to Simon Peter, who says to Him, Lord, Do You wash my feet? 7Jesus answered and said to him, What I do you do not presently know, however you will know after (with) these. 8Peter says to Him, You may never wash my feet unto the age. Jesus answered him, If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me. 9Simon Peter says to Him, Lord, not only my feet, but also the hands and the head. 10Jesus says to him, the one having been bathed (washed all over) has no need to wash except the feet, but is wholly clean (katharos); and you are clean, but not all. 11For He knew the one who was betraying Him; on account of this He said, You are not all clean.

12When therefore He had washed their feet and taken His outer garments, and having reclined again, He said to them, Do you know what I have done to you? 13You call Me, Teacher and Lord, and you say rightly, for I am [so]. 14If therefore I, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15For I gave you an example (model, copy), so that just as I did to you, you also should do. 16Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his lord, nor a sent one (apostle) greater than the one having sent him. 17If you know these things, you are blessed (happy) if you do them.

18I do not speak concerning all of you. I know whom I chose, but so that the Scripture might be fulfilled, The one eating My bread lifted up his heel against (upon) Me. 19From now I am telling you before it happens, so that you should believe when it happens that I am [He]. 20Truly, truly I say to you, The one receiving anyone I shall send, receives Me; and the one who receiving Me, receives the One having sent Me.

21Having said these things, Jesus was troubled (stirred up, agitated) in spirit and testified and said, Truly, truly I say to you that one from out of you will betray Me. 22The disciples looked unto one another being at a loss (perplexed, latin-haesitantes-hesitant root is stuck) concerning whom He was speaking. 23There was one from out of His disciples reclining in (on) the bosom (upper chest) of Jesus, whom Jesus loved (egapa). 24Simon Peter motions (makes a sign) therefore to Him to inquire who it is whom He is speaking about. 25He then having leaned back thus upon the breast of Jesus, says to Him, Lord, who is it? 26Then Jesus answers, It is he to whom I will dip (bapso) the morsel and give it. Having dipped then the morsel, He takes it and gives it to Judas Iscariot son of Simon. 27And after the morsel, then Satan entered (went into) into him. Jesus then says to him, What you do, do quickly. 28And this no one knew, of those reclining, to what He spoke to him; 29For some supposed, since Judas had the moneybag, that Jesus was saying to him, Buy what things we have need of unto the feast; or so that he should give something to the poor (beggarly, destitute). 30Having therefore received the morsel, he went out directly; and it was night.

31When therefore he had gone out, Jesus says, Now the Son of man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in Him. 32If God is glorified in Him, God also will glorify Him in Himself, and directly will glorify Him. 33Little children, I am with you yet a little while. You will seek Me; and, just as I said to the Jews, where I go, you are not able to come; and so I say to you just now. 34A new commandment I give to you, so that you should love one another; just as I have loved you, so also you should love one another. 35In this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love among (in) one another.

36Simon Peter says to Him, Lord, where do You go? Jesus answered him, Where I go, you are not able to follow Me now; however you will follow afterward. 37Peter says to Him, Lord, Why am I not able to follow presently? I will lay down my life (soul) for You. 38Jesus answered, Will you lay down your life (soul) for Me? Truly, truly I say to you, The rooster will not call out until that you will deny Me three. times.
