Luke 22:31-34 Expanded Bible (EXB)

Don’t Lose Your Faith!

31 “Simon [C Peter], Simon, [L look; T behold,] Satan has ·asked [de-manded; sought permission] to ·test all of you as a farmer sifts his [L sift all of you as] wheat. 32 [L But] I have prayed [L for you] that ·you will not lose your faith [your faith will not fail]! And when you ·come back to me [return; turn back], help your brothers be stronger.”

33 But Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and even to die with you!”

34 But Jesus said, “[L I tell you,] Peter, before the rooster crows this day, you will ·say three times that you don’t [L deny three times that you] know me.”

Jesus’ Followers Will Leave Him

31 Jesus told ·his followers [L them], “Tonight you will all ·stumble in your faith [fall away; desert] on account of me, because it is written in the Scriptures:

‘I will ·kill [strike] the shepherd,
and the sheep [L of the flock] will ·scatter [be scattered][Zech. 13:7].

32 But after ·I rise from the dead [L I am raised], I will go ahead of you into Galilee.”

33 Peter said, “Everyone else may ·stumble in their faith [fall away; desert] because of you, but I will not.”

34 Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, tonight before the rooster crows you will ·say three times you don’t know me [deny/disown me three times].”

35 But Peter said, “Even if I must die with you, I will never ·say that I don’t know [deny/disown] you!” And all the other ·followers [disciples] said the same thing.
