Bible: Mark 14:66-72

Peter’s Denials

14:66 Now 1  while Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the high priest’s slave girls 2  came by. 14:67 When she saw Peter warming himself, she looked directly at him and said, “You also were with that Nazarene, Jesus.” 14:68 But he denied it: 3  “I don’t even understand what you’re talking about!” 4  Then 5  he went out to the gateway, and a rooster crowed. 6  14:69 When the slave girl saw him, she began again to say to the bystanders, “This man is one of them.” 14:70 But he denied it again. A short time later the bystanders again said to Peter, “You must be 7  one of them, because you are also a Galilean.” 14:71 Then he began to curse, and he swore with an oath, “I do not know this man you are talking about! 14:72 Immediately a rooster 8  crowed a second time. Then 9  Peter remembered what Jesus had said to him: “Before a rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times.” And he broke down and wept. 10
