Jesus Washes His Disciples’ Feet
1It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.
2The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus. 3Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; 4so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 5After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.
6He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”
7Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”
8“No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.”
Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”
9“Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!”
10Jesus answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.” 11For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.
12When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. 13“You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. 15I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. 16Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
Jesus Predicts His Betrayal
18“I am not referring to all of you; I know those I have chosen. But this is to fulfill this passage of Scripture: ‘He who shared my bread has turned13:18 Greek has lifted up his heel against me.’13:18 Psalm 41:9
19“I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am who I am. 20Very truly I tell you, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me.”
21After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, “Very truly I tell you, one of you is going to betray me.”
22His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant. 23One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him. 24Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, “Ask him which one he means.”
25Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, “Lord, who is it?”
26Jesus answered, “It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish.” Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot. 27As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him.
So Jesus told him, “What you are about to do, do quickly.” 28But no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him. 29Since Judas had charge of the money, some thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the festival, or to give something to the poor. 30As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night.
Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial
31When he was gone, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified and God is glorified in him. 32If God is glorified in him,13:32 Many early manuscripts do not have If God is glorified in him. God will glorify the Son in himself, and will glorify him at once.
33“My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.
34“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
36Simon Peter asked him, “Lord, where are you going?”
Jesus replied, “Where I am going, you cannot follow now, but you will follow later.”
37Peter asked, “Lord, why can’t I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.”
38Then Jesus answered, “Will you really lay down your life for me? Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times!
Jesũ Gũthambia Arutwo ake Nyarĩrĩ
113:1 Joh 11:55; Joh 16:28Na rĩrĩ, gwatigĩtie o hanini Gĩathĩ kĩa Bathaka gĩkinye. Jesũ nĩamenyete atĩ ihinda rĩake rĩa kuuma gũkũ thĩ athiĩ kũrĩ Ithe nĩrĩakinyĩte. Na tondũ nĩendete arĩa maarĩ ake gũkũ thĩ, akĩmoonia ũrĩa aamendete nginya kĩrĩkĩrĩro.

6Na aakinya harĩ Simoni Petero, Petero akĩmũũria atĩrĩ, “Hĩ, Mwathani, wee nĩwe ũgũũthambia nyarĩrĩ?”
7Jesũ akĩmũcookeria atĩrĩ, “Ndũngĩmenya ũrĩa ndĩreka rĩu, no thuutha-inĩ nĩũrĩmenya.”
8Petero akĩmwĩra atĩrĩ, “Aca, wee ndũrĩ hĩndĩ ũngĩthambia nyarĩrĩ ciakwa.”
Jesũ akĩmũcookeria atĩrĩ, “Itangĩgũthambia, ndũngĩgĩa ngwatanĩro na niĩ.”
9Simoni Petero akĩmũcookeria atĩrĩ, “Mwathani, ndũgaathambie o nyarĩrĩ ciiki, no gĩĩthambie moko o na mũtwe!”
1013:10 Joh 15:3Jesũ akĩmũcookeria atĩrĩ, “Mũndũ wĩthambĩte mwĩrĩ abatairio nĩ gwĩthamba o nyarĩrĩ ciiki; mwĩrĩ wake wothe nĩ mũtheru. Na inyuĩ mũrĩ atheru, o na gũtuĩka ti inyuothe.” 11Nĩgũkorwo nĩamenyete ũrĩa ũkaamũkunyanĩra, na nĩkĩo oigire atĩ ti othe maarĩ atheru.
12Aarĩkia kũmathambia nyarĩrĩ, akĩĩhumba nguo yake ya igũrũ, na agĩcooka harĩa aikarĩte. Akĩmooria atĩrĩ, “Nĩmwataũkĩrwo nĩ ũguo ndamwĩka? 1313:13 Afil 2:11Mũnjĩtaga ‘Mũrutani’ na ‘Mwathani’, na ũguo nĩguo kũrĩ, nĩgũkorwo ũguo nĩguo ndĩ. 14Na rĩrĩ, kuona atĩ Niĩ, Mwathani na Mũrutani wanyu, nĩndamũthambia nyarĩrĩ-rĩ, o na inyuĩ nĩmwagĩrĩirwo mũthambanagie nyarĩrĩ mũndũ na ũrĩa ũngĩ. 1513:15 Math 11:29; 1Tim 4:12Nĩndamuonia kĩonereria nĩguo mwĩkage o ta ũguo ndamwĩka. 1613:16 Math 10:24Ngũmwĩra atĩrĩ na ma, gũtirĩ ndungata nene gũkĩra mwathi wayo, kana mũtũmwo agakĩra ũrĩa ũmũtũmĩte. 1713:17 Jak 1:25Kuona atĩ rĩu nĩmũmenyete maũndũ maya, nĩmũrĩrathimagwo mwameka.
Jesũ Kũratha Ũhoro wa Gũkunyanĩrwo Gwake
1813:18 Joh 13:10; Thab 41:9“Ndiraaria ũhoro wanyu inyuothe; nĩnjũũĩ arĩa thuurĩte. No ũhoro ũyũ nĩ wa kũhingia maandĩko marĩa moigĩte atĩrĩ, ‘O ũrĩa tũrĩĩanagĩra irio nake nĩangarũrũkĩte.’

21Jesũ aarĩkia kuuga ũguo, agĩtangĩka ngoro na akiumbũra atĩrĩ, “Ngũmwĩra atĩrĩ na ma, ũmwe wanyu nĩekũngunyanĩra.”
22Nao arutwo ake makĩambĩrĩria kũrorana marigĩtwo nũũ gatagatĩ-inĩ kao aaragia ũhoro wake. 2313:23 Joh 19:26; 20:2Ũmwe wao, mũrutwo ũrĩa Jesũ endete, aikarĩte thĩ etiiranĩtie na Jesũ. 24Nake Simoni Petero akĩheneria mũrutwo ũcio, akĩmwĩra atĩrĩ, “Ta mũũrie araaria ũhoro wa ũ.”

26Jesũ agĩcookia atĩrĩ, “Nĩ ũrĩa ngũhe kĩenyũ gĩkĩ kĩa mũgate ndaarĩkia gũgĩtobokia thubu-inĩ.” Na aarĩkia gũtobokia kĩenyũ kĩa mũgate thubu-inĩ, agĩkĩhe Judasi Isikariota mũrũ wa Simoni. 2713:27 Luk 22:3Judasi aarĩkia kũrĩa mũgate ũcio, Mũcukani akĩmũingĩra.
Nake Jesũ akĩmwĩra atĩrĩ, “Ũrĩa ũkiriĩ gwĩka-rĩ, ĩka narua.” 28No gũtirĩ o na ũmwe warĩ metha-inĩ wataũkĩirwo nĩ gĩtũmi kĩa Jesũ kũmwĩra ũguo. 2913:29 Joh 12:6Na tondũ Judasi nĩwe waigaga mbeeca-rĩ, amwe magĩĩciiria Jesũ aamwĩraga agũre kĩrĩa kĩabataranĩtie nĩ ũndũ wa Gĩathĩ, kana aheane kĩndũ nĩ ũndũ wa arĩa athĩĩni. 30Nake Judasi aarĩkia kwamũkĩra mũgate ũcio, akiuma nja. Na kwarĩ ũtukũ.
Jesũ Kũratha atĩ Petero Nĩekũmũkaana
3113:31 Joh 14:13Na Judasi aarĩkia gũthiĩ, Jesũ akiuga atĩrĩ, “Rĩu Mũrũ wa Mũndũ nĩagoocithĩtio, nake Ngai nĩagoocithĩtio arĩ thĩinĩ wake. 32Angĩkorwo Ngai nĩagoocithĩtio thĩinĩ wake, Ngai nĩekũgoocithia Mũriũ arĩ thĩinĩ wake mwene, na amũgoocithie o narua.
