Mark 14:34-38; Luke 12:37; Luke 21:36; Acts 20:31; 1 Thessalonians 5:6

34 And he said to them, vMy soul is very sorrowful, even to death. Remain here and wwatch.1 35 And going a little farther, he fell on the ground xand prayed that, if it were possible, ythe hour might pass from him. 36 And he said, zAbba, Father, aall things are possible for you. Remove bthis cup from me. cYet not what I will, but what you will. 37 And he came and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, Simon, are you asleep? Could you not watch one hour? 38 wWatch and dpray that you may not eenter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

37 eBlessed are those servants1 whom the master finds eawake when he comes. Truly, I say to you, fhe will dress himself for service and ghave them recline at table, and he will come and serve them.

36 But kstay awake at all times, lpraying that you may mhave strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and nto stand before the Son of Man.

31 Therefore wbe alert, remembering that xfor three years I did not cease night or day yto admonish every one zwith tears.

So then dlet us not sleep, as others do, but let us ekeep awake and fbe sober.
