“ Thou shalt never wash my feet.” Jesus answered him, 9 “ If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.” Simon
Peter saith unto him, “Master, not my feet only, but 10 mine hands and head also.” Jesus saith unto him, “ He
that hath bathed, needeth to wash his feet only; and he 11 is altogether clean: and ye are clean, but not all.” For
he knew who was to deliver him up: wherefore he said, 12 “Ye are not all clean.” So after he had washed their
feet, and had taken his upper garments, and had again
placed himself at table, he said unto them, 13 what I have done to you? Ye call me, Teacher, and 14 Master : and ye say well: for so I am. If I then, your
Master and Teacher, have washed your feet; ye also 15 ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you
an example, that ye also may do as I have done to you. 16 Verily verily I say unto you, The servant is not greater
than his master; nor is the messenger greater than he 17 who sent him. If* ye know these things, happy are ye

his heel against me.' Now I tell you before it come to pass, that, when it shall come to 20 pass, ye may believe that I am he. Verily verily I say
unto you, He that receiveth whom I shall send, receiveth
me; and he that receiveth me, receiveth him that sent 21 me.” When Jesus had said thus, he was troubled in his
spirit, and testified, and said, “Verily verily I say unto 22 you, that one of you will deliver me up.” Then the dis
ciples looked on one another, doubting of whom he spake. 23 Now there was placed on the bosom of Jesus one of his 24 disciples, whom Jesus loved. Simon Peter therefore beck
oneth to him, that he should ask who it might be of 25 whom Jesus spake. He then who leaned on the breast
26 of Jesus, saith unto him, “ Master, who is it?” Jesus
answereth, “It is he to whom I shall give à piece of bread *, when I have dipped it.”
it.” And when he had dipped the piece of bread, he giveth it to Judas Iscariot, 27 the son of Simon. And, after the piece of bread, Satan
entered into him t. Then saith Jesus unto him, “What 28 thou doest, do quickly.” Now no man at the table knew 29 why Jesus spake this unto him. For some thought, be
cause Judas had the purse, that Jesus had said unto him,
Buy those things which we have need of for the feast;" 30 or, that he should give something to the poor. He then
who had received the piece of bread *, went out imme31 diately: now it was night. When he was gone out,

also will glorify him in himself, and will immediately 33 glorify him. My children, but a little time longer I shall
