Luke 22

Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus

1Now the Festival of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching, and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some way to get rid of Jesus, for they were afraid of the people. Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve. And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus. They were delighted and agreed to give him money. He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present.

The Last Supper

Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover.”

“Where do you want us to prepare for it?” they asked.

10 He replied, “As you enter the city, a man carrying a jar of water will meet you. Follow him to the house that he enters, 11 and say to the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher asks: Where is the guest room, where I may eat the Passover with my disciples?’ 12 He will show you a large room upstairs, all furnished. Make preparations there.”

13 They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.

14 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. 15 And he said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. 16 For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God.”

17 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, “Take this and divide it among you. 18 For I tell you I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”

19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

20 In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.[a] 21 But the hand of him who is going to betray me is with mine on the table. 22 The Son of Man will go as it has been decreed. But woe to that man who betrays him!” 23 They began to question among themselves which of them it might be who would do this.

24 A dispute also arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest. 25 Jesus said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. 26 But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves. 27 For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves. 28 You are those who have stood by me in my trials. 29 And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me, 30 so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

31 “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”

33 But he replied, “Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death.”

34 Jesus answered, “I tell you, Peter, before the rooster crows today, you will deny three times that you know me.”

35 Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?”

“Nothing,” they answered.

36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. 37 It is written: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors’[b]; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me. Yes, what is written about me is reaching its fulfillment.”

38 The disciples said, “See, Lord, here are two swords.”

“That’s enough!” he replied.

Jesus Prays on the Mount of Olives

39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. 40 On reaching the place, he said to them, “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.” 41 He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, 42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” 43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. 44 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.[c]

45 When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow. 46 “Why are you sleeping?” he asked them. “Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.”

Jesus Arrested

47 While he was still speaking a crowd came up, and the man who was called Judas, one of the Twelve, was leading them. He approached Jesus to kiss him, 48 but Jesus asked him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?”

49 When Jesus’ followers saw what was going to happen, they said, “Lord, should we strike with our swords?” 50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.

51 But Jesus answered, “No more of this!” And he touched the man’s ear and healed him.

52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests, the officers of the temple guard, and the elders, who had come for him, “Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come with swords and clubs? 53 Every day I was with you in the temple courts, and you did not lay a hand on me. But this is your hour—when darkness reigns.”

Peter Disowns Jesus

54 Then seizing him, they led him away and took him into the house of the high priest. Peter followed at a distance. 55 And when some there had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter sat down with them. 56 A servant girl saw him seated there in the firelight. She looked closely at him and said, “This man was with him.”

57 But he denied it. “Woman, I don’t know him,” he said.

58 A little later someone else saw him and said, “You also are one of them.”

“Man, I am not!” Peter replied.

59 About an hour later another asserted, “Certainly this fellow was with him, for he is a Galilean.”

60 Peter replied, “Man, I don’t know what you’re talking about!” Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed. 61 The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him: “Before the rooster crows today, you will disown me three times.” 62 And he went outside and wept bitterly.

The Guards Mock Jesus

63 The men who were guarding Jesus began mocking and beating him. 64 They blindfolded him and demanded, “Prophesy! Who hit you?” 65 And they said many other insulting things to him.

Jesus Before Pilate and Herod

66 At daybreak the council of the elders of the people, both the chief priests and the teachers of the law, met together, and Jesus was led before them. 67 “If you are the Messiah,” they said, “tell us.”

Jesus answered, “If I tell you, you will not believe me, 68 and if I asked you, you would not answer. 69 But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God.”

70 They all asked, “Are you then the Son of God?”

He replied, “You say that I am.”

71 Then they said, “Why do we need any more testimony? We have heard it from his own lips.”

Endagaano Enkadde nʼEndagaano Empya

Lukka 22

Yuda Alya mu Yesu Olukwe

1Embaga ey’Emigaati Egitazimbulukuswa eyitibwa Okuyitako yali esembedde. Bakabona abakulu n’abannyonnyozi b’amateeka baali bakola kaweefube okusala amagezi okutta Yesu, naye nga batya abantu okusasamala. Awo Setaani n’ayingira mu Yuda Isukalyoti eyali omu ku bayigirizwa ekkumi n’ababiri, n’agenda eri bakabona abakulu n’abakuumi ba Yeekaalu abakulu, n’ateesa nabo nga bw’anaamuwaayo gye bali. Ne basanyuka nnyo, era ne bakkiriza okumusasula. Yuda n’akkiriza okuwaayo Yesu, n’anoonya akakisa konna mw’anaamuweerayo gye bali nga tewali kibiina.

Ekyekiro eky’Enkomerero

Awo olunaku olw’Emigaati Egitazimbulukuswa, okuttirwa omwana gw’endiga ogw’embaga y’Okuyitako, ne lutuuka. Yesu n’atuma Peetero ne Yokaana n’abagamba nti, “Mugende mututegekere ekyekiro kyaffe eky’okuyitako, tujje tukirye.”

Ne bamubuuza nti, “Oyagala tukitegekere wa?”

10 Yesu n’abaddamu nti, “Munaaba mwakayingira mu kibuga, mujja kulaba omusajja eyeetisse ensuwa y’amazzi ng’atambula. Mumugoberere okutuuka mu nnyumba mw’anaayingira, 11 mugambe nnyinimu nti, ‘Omuyigiriza atutumye gy’oli ng’agamba nti: Ekisenge ky’abagenyi kiruwa mwe nnaaliira Okuyitako n’abayigirizwa bange?’ 12 Ajja kubalaga ekisenge ekinene ekya waggulu nga kitegekeddwa bulungi. Omwo mwe muba mutegekera.”

13 Ne balaga mu kibuga, ne basanga buli kimu nga Yesu bwe yabagamba. Ne bateekateeka Okuyitako.

14 Awo ekiseera ky’okulya bwe kyatuuka, Yesu n’atuula n’abayigirizwa be okulya. 15 Yesu n’agamba abayigirizwa be nti, “Ebbanga eryo lyonna mbadde ndowooza nnyo ku Kyekiro kino eky’Okuyitako, nga njagala nkirye nammwe nga sinnaba kubonyaabonyezebwa. 16 Kubanga mbagamba nti sigenda kuddayo kulya nammwe Okuyitako okutuusa lwe kulituukirizibwa mu bwakabaka bwa Katonda.”

17 Awo Yesu n’addira ekikompe ky’envinnyo, bwe yamala okwebaza Katonda, n’agamba nti, “Mukwate, munyweko mwenna. 18 Kubanga mbagamba nti, Sigenda kuddayo kunywa ku kibala kya muzabbibu okutuusa ng’obwakabaka bwa Katonda buzze.”

19 Ate n’atoola omugaati, bwe yamala okwebaza Katonda, n’agumenyaamenyamu, n’abagabira ng’agamba nti, “Guno gwe mubiri gwange oguweebwayo ku lwammwe. Mukolenga bwe muti nga munzijukira.”

20 Bwe baamala okulya ekyekiro, n’addira nate ekikompe era mu ngeri y’emu n’akibakwasa ng’agamba nti, “Ekikompe kino ke kabonero ak’endagaano ya Katonda empya ekakasibwa mu musaayi gwange oguyiyibwa ku lwammwe. 21 Naye muwulire kino. Omuntu agenda okundyamu olukwe atudde wano nange ku mmere. 22 Kigwanira Omwana w’Omuntu, okufa nga Katonda bwe yateekateeka. Naye zimusanze omuntu oyo amulyamu olukwe.” 23 Awo abayigirizwa ne batandika okwebuuzaganya bokka na bokka nti ani ku bo ayinza okukola ekintu ng’ekyo!

Empaka ku Bukulu

24 Era ne batandika okuwakana bokka ne bokka, ani asinga ekitiibwa mu bo? 25 Naye Yesu n’abagamba nti, “Bakabaka b’abamawanga bafuga abantu baabwe, n’ab’obuyinza ne babazunza mu kino na kiri, naye abafugibwa tebalina kya kukola wabula okubayita abayambi baabwe. 26 Naye mu mmwe tekisaanira kuba bwe kityo. Oyo asinga ekitiibwa mu mmwe asaana yeeyisenga ng’asembayo, n’omukulembeze mu mmwe asaana abeere ng’omuweereza wammwe. 27 Mu nsi muno omukungu y’atula ku mmeeza abaddu be ne bamuweereza. Naye wano mu ffe nze muweereza wammwe. 28 Naye mmwe mubadde wamu nange mu biseera bino eby’okugezesebwa kwange, 29 era kubanga Kitange ampadde obwakabaka, noolwekyo mbaatulira kati nti mbawadde ekifo 30 okutuula n’okulya era n’okunywera ku mmeeza yange mu bwakabaka bwange obwo, era mulituula ku ntebe ne mulamula ebika bya Isirayiri ekkumi n’ebibiri.

31 “Simooni, Simooni, Setaani asabye okukuwewa ng’eŋŋaano, 32 naye ggwe nkusabidde okukkiriza kwo kuleme kukuggwaamu. Era bw’olimala okwenenya, yamba mu kuzimba n’okunyweza okukkiriza kwa baganda bo.”

33 Awo Peetero n’addamu nti, “Mukama wange, neeteeseteese okusibirwa awamu naawe mu kkomera, era n’okufiira awamu naawe.”

34 Yesu n’amuddamu nti, “Peetero, nkutegeeza nti leero ononneegaana emirundi esatu enkoko nga tennakookolima.”

35 Awo Yesu n’ababuuza nti, “Bwe nabatuma okubuulira Enjiri, ne mutatwala nsimbi wadde ensawo, oba omugogo omulala ogw’engatto, mwalina okwetaaga ekintu kyonna?” Ne baddamu nti, “Nedda.”

36 Yesu n’abagamba nti, “Naye kaakano alina ensawo eterekebwamu ensimbi agitwale, n’ensawo ng’ey’omusabiriza bwe mutyo. Atalina kitala, atunde ku ngoye ze akyegulire! 37 Kubanga mbagamba nti kyetaagisa okutuukirizibwa mu nze ekyawandiikibwa nti, ‘Yabalirwa wamu n’abamenyi b’amateeka,’ ebinkwatako biteekwa okutuukirira.”

38 Abayigirizwa ne bamugamba nti, “Mukama waffe, wano tulinawo ebitala bibiri!” N’abaddamu nti, “Bimala!”

Yesu asaba ku lusozi olwa Zeyituuni

39 Awo Yesu n’afuluma mu kibuga awamu n’abayigirizwa be n’akwata ekkubo erigenda ku lusozi olwa Zeyituuni nga bwe yali empisa ye. 40 Bwe yatuuka eyo n’agamba abayigirizwa be nti, “Musabe Katonda, muleme kuwangulwa kukemebwa.” 41 Ye n’abavaako akabanga ng’awakasukwa ejjinja, n’afukamira n’asaba nti, 42 “Kitange, obanga kwe kusiima kwo ekikompe kino kinzigyeko. Naye si nga Nze bwe njagala, wabula ky’oyagala kye kiba kikolebwa.” 43 Awo malayika eyava mu ggulu n’ajja n’amugumya. 44 Yali mu kunyolwa kunene nnyo okw’omwoyo, ne yeeyongera okusaba ennyo n’atuuyana n’entuuyo ezamuvaamu ne ziba ng’amatondo g’omusaayi, era ne gatonnya wansi.

45 Bwe yayimuka ng’amaze okusaba n’addayo eri abayigirizwa be, naye n’abasanga nga beebase, olw’ennaku eyali ebakutte. 46 N’abagamba nti, “Lwaki mwebase? Muzuukuke, musabe, muleme kuwangulwa kukemebwa.”

Yesu Akwatibwa

47 Awo Yesu bwe yali ng’akyayogera, ekibiina ky’abantu ne batuuka nga Yuda, omu ku bayigirizwa be ekkumi n’ababiri, y’abakulembedde. Yuda n’ajja butereevu awali Yesu, n’amunywegera. 48 Naye Yesu n’amugamba nti, “Yuda, Omwana w’Omuntu omulyamu olukwe ng’omugwa mu kifuba?”

49 Abayigirizwa abalala bwe baalaba ekyali kigenda okubaawo ne babuuza Yesu nti, “Mukama waffe, tubateme n’ebitala byaffe?” 50 Era omu ku bo n’atemako n’ekitala okutu kw’omuweereza wa Kabona Asinga Obukulu. 51 Naye Yesu n’abagamba nti, “Temwongera kubalwanyisa.” N’akwata ku kutu kw’omusajja, n’amuwonya!

52 Yesu kwe kukyukira bakabona abakulu, n’abakulu b’abakuumi ba Yeekaalu, n’abakulembeze b’Abayudaaya abaali bakulembedde ekibiina ky’abantu, n’abagamba nti, “Ndi munyazi, n’okujja ne mujja gye ndi nga mwambalidde ebitala n’emiggo? 53 Lwaki temwankwatira mu Yeekaalu? Nabeeranga omwo buli lunaku. Naye nammwe eno ye ssaawa yammwe, n’ekizikiza we kiragira obuyinza bwakyo.”

Peetero Yeegaana Yesu

54 Awo ne bakwata Yesu ne bamutwala mu nnyumba ya Kabona Asinga Obukulu. Peetero n’agoberera nga yeesuddeko akabanga. 55 Bwe baamala okukuma omuliro wakati mu luggya ne batuula okwota; Peetero naye n’atuula wakati mu bo, n’ayota omuliro. 56 Omuwala omuweereza n’amulengera ng’omuliro gumumulisizza, n’amutunuulira enkaliriza, okutuusa lwe yagamba nti, “Omusajja ono yali ne Yesu!”

57 Peetero ne yeegaana nti, “Omukazi, oyo gw’oyogerako nze simumanyi.”

58 Bwe waayitawo akabanga omuntu omulala n’alaba Peetero n’amugamba nti, “Naawe oli omu ku bo.” Peetero ne yeegaana nti, “Nedda, ssebo, si bwe kiri.” 59 Bwe waali wayiseewo ng’essaawa nnamba, omuntu omu n’ayogera ng’akakasa nti, “Ddala n’ono yali wamu ne Yesu kubanga naye Mugaliraaya.” 60 Peetero n’addamu nti, “Omusajja, by’oyogerako sibimanyi!” Peetero bwe yali akyayogera enkoko n’ekookolima. 61 Mu kaseera ako Mukama waffe n’akyuka n’atunuulira Peetero. Peetero n’ajjukira Yesu kye yagamba nti, “Enkoko eneeba tennakookolima ononneegaana emirundi esatu.” 62 Awo Peetero n’afuluma okuva mu luggya n’akaaba nnyo amaziga!

Abaserikale Baduulira Yesu

63 Awo abasajja abaali bakuuma Yesu ne batandika okumuduulira n’okumukuba. 64 Ne bamusiba ekitambaala ku maaso ne bamukuba ebikonde, oluvannyuma ne bamubuuza nti, “Nnabbi! yogera ani akukubye?” 65 Ne bamuvuma n’ebigambo ebirala bingi.

Yesu mu Maaso g’Olukiiko Olukulu

66 Enkeera mu makya Olukiiko Olukulu olw’Abayudaaya, nga lulimu bakabona abakulu, n’abannyonnyozi b’amateeka, n’abakulembeze b’Abayudaaya, ne lutuula. Yesu n’aleetebwa mu maaso g’Olukiiko olwo.

67 Ne bamubuuza nti, “Obanga ggwe Kristo, tubuulire.”

Yesu n’abaddamu nti, “Bwe nnaababuulira temujja kunzikiriza, 68 ne bwe nnaababuuza ebibuuzo temujja kunnyanukula. 69 Naye ekiseera kituuse, Nze, Omwana w’Omuntu, okutuula ku mukono ogwa ddyo ogwa Katonda Ayinzabyonna.”

70 Bonna ne baleekaana nti, “Kwe kugamba nti ggwe Mwana wa Katonda?”

Yesu n’abaddamu nti, “Nga bwe mugambye bwe ntyo bwe ndi.”

71 Ne bagamba nti, “Ate twetaagira ki obujulizi obulala? Kubanga ffe ffennyini twewuliridde ng’ebigambo bino biva mu kamwa ke.”
