Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus
And while He was still speaking, t behold, a multitude; and he who was called u Judas, one of the twelve, went before them and drew near to Jesus to kiss Him.
But Jesus said to him, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a v kiss?"
When those around Him saw what was going to happen, they said to Him, "Lord, shall we strike with the sword?"
And w one of them struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his right ear.
But Jesus answered and said, "Permit even this." And He touched his ear and healed him.
x Then Jesus said to the chief priests, captains of the temple, and the elders who had come to Him, "Have you come out, as against a y robber, with swords and clubs?
"When I was with you daily in the z temple, you did not try to seize Me. But this is your a hour, and the power of darkness."

Faithful are the wounds of a friend, But the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
And suddenly, one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his sword, struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
In that hour Jesus said to the multitudes, "Have you come out, as against a robber, with swords and clubs to take Me? I sat daily with you, teaching in the temple, and you did not seize Me.
There were also two others, criminals, led with Him to be put to death.
And He was teaching daily in the temple. But the chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people sought to destroy Him.
And were unable to do anything; for all the people were very attentive to hear Him.
Now My soul is troubled, and what shall I say? 'Father, save Me from this hour'? But for this purpose I came to this hour.
