8. Pressed in Gethsemane
26:36-46

36 aThen Jesus came with them to a bplace called 1Gethsemane, and He said to the disciples, Sit here while I go over there and pray.

37 And taking Peter and the two asons of Zebedee aside, He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed.

38 Then He said to them, My asoul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Remain here and watch with Me.

39 And going forward a little, He fell on His face and aprayed, saying, My Father, if it is possible, let this 1bcup pass from Me; yet not as I cwill, but as You will.

40 And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping. And He said to Peter, So were you not able to watch with Me for one hour?

41 aWatch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The 1spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.

42 Again, going away a second time, He prayed, saying, My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your awill be done.

43 And coming again, He found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy.

44 And leaving them, He went away again and prayed a athird time, saying the same word again.

45 Then He came to the disciples and said to them, Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the ahour has drawn near, and the Son of Man is being delivered up into the hands of sinners.

46 Arise, let us be going. Behold, the one who is betraying Me has drawn near.
