43 Immediately while He was still speaking, Judas, one of the twelve, *came up [a]accompanied by a crowd with swords and clubs, who were from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.44 Now he who was betraying Him had given them a signal, saying, “Whomever I kiss, He is the one; seize Him and lead Him away [b]under guard.”45 After coming, Judas immediately went to Him, saying, “Rabbi!” and kissed Him.46 They laid hands on Him and seized Him.47 But one of those who stood by drew his sword, and struck the slave of the high priest and [c]cut off his ear.48 And Jesus said to them, “Have you come out with swords and clubs to arrest Me, as you would against a robber?49 Every day I was with you in the temple teaching, and you did not seize Me; but this has taken place to fulfill the Scriptures.”50 And they all left Him and fled.
47 While He was still speaking, behold, a crowd came, and the one called Judas, one of the twelve, was preceding them; and he approached Jesus to kiss Him.48 But Jesus said to him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?”49 When those who were around Him saw what was going to happen, they said, “Lord, shall we strike with the sword?”50 And one of them struck the slave of the high priest and cut off his right ear.51 But Jesus answered and said, “[a]Stop! No more of this.” And He touched his ear and healed him.52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests and officers of the temple and elders who had come against Him, “Have you come out with swords and clubs as you would against a robber?53 While I was with you daily in the temple, you did not lay hands on Me; but [b]this hour and the power of darkness are yours.”

3 Judas then, having received the Roman[a]cohort and officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, *came there with lanterns and torches and weapons.4 So Jesus, knowing all the things that were coming upon Him, went forth and *said to them, “Whom do you seek?”5 They answered Him, “Jesus the Nazarene.” He *said to them, “I am He.” And Judas also, who was betraying Him, was standing with them.6 So when He said to them, “I am He,” they drew back and fell to the ground.7 Therefore He again asked them, “Whom do you seek?” And they said, “Jesus the Nazarene.”8 Jesus answered, “I told you that I am He; so if you seek Me, let these go their way,”9 to fulfill the word which He spoke, “Of those whom You have given Me I lost not one.”10 Simon Peter then, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest’s slave, and cut off his right ear; and the slave’s name was Malchus.11 So Jesus said to Peter, “Put the sword into the sheath; the cup which the Father has given Me, shall I not drink it?”
