For the Son of Man goes, even as it is written about him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would be better for that man if he had not been born."

As they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had blessed, he broke it, and gave to them, and said, "Take, eat. This is my body."

He took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave to them. They all drank of it.

He said to them, "This is my blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for many.

Most assuredly I tell you, I will no more drink of the fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it anew in the Kingdom of God."

When they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.

Jesus said to them, "All of you will be made to stumble because of me tonight, for it is written, 'I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.'

However, after I am raised up, I will go before you to Galilee."

But Peter said to him, "Although all will be offended, yet I will not."

Jesus said to him, "Most assuredly I tell you, that you today, even this night, before the cock crows twice, you will deny me three times."

But he spoke all the more, "If I must die with you, I will not deny you." They all said the same thing.

They came to a place which was named Gethsemane. He said to his disciples, "Sit here, while I pray."

He took with him Peter, James, and John, and began to be greatly troubled and distressed.

He said to them, "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here, and watch."

He went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass away from him.

He said, "Abba, Father, all things are possible to you. Please remove this cup from me. However, not what I desire, but what you desire."

He came and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, "Simon, are you sleeping? Couldn't you watch one hour?

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

Again he went away, and prayed, saying the same words.

Again he returned, and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy, and they didn't know what to answer him.
