Matthew 26:31–35; Matthew 26:69–75

31 Then Jesus said to them, You will all fall away because of me this night. For it is written, I will gstrike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered. 32 But after I am raised up, hI will go before you to Galilee. 33 iPeter answered him, Though they all fall away because of you, I will never fall away. 34 jJesus said to him, Truly, I tell you, this very night, kbefore the rooster crows, you will deny me three times. 35 lPeter said to him, Even if I must die with you, I will not deny you! And all the disciples said the same.


Peter Denies Jesus

69 qNow Peter was sitting outside rin the courtyard. And a servant girl came up to him and said, You also were with Jesus the Galilean. 70 But he denied it before them all, saying, I do not know what you mean. 71 And when he went out to the entrance, another servant girl saw him, and she said to the bystanders, This man was with Jesus sof Nazareth. 72 And again he denied it with an oath: I do not know the man. 73 After a little while the bystanders came up and said to Peter, Certainly you too are one of them, for tyour accent betrays you. 74 Then he began to invoke a curse on himself and to swear, I do not know the man. And immediately the rooster crowed. 75 And Peter remembered the saying of Jesus, uBefore the rooster crows, you will vdeny me three times. And he went out and wept bitterly.
