Bible: Mark 14:32-42

Gethsemane

14:32 Then 1  they went to a place called Gethsemane, and Jesus 2  said to his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.” 14:33 He took Peter, James, 3  and John with him, and became very troubled and distressed. 14:34 He said to them, “My soul is deeply grieved, even to the point of death. Remain here and stay alert.” 14:35 Going a little farther, he threw himself to the ground and prayed that if it were possible the hour would pass from him. 14:36 He said, “Abba, 4  Father, all things are possible for you. Take this cup 5  away from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.” 14:37 Then 6  he came and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “Simon, are you sleeping? Couldn’t you stay awake for one hour? 14:38 Stay awake and pray that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” 14:39 He went away again and prayed the same thing. 14:40 When he came again he found them sleeping; they could not keep their eyes open. 7  And they did not know what to tell him. 14:41 He came a third time and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? 8  Enough of that! 9  The hour has come. Look, the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 14:42 Get up, let us go. Look! My betrayer 10  is approaching!
