Bible: Matthew 26:69-75

Peter’s Denials

26:69 Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard. A 1  slave girl 2  came to him and said, “You also were with Jesus the Galilean.” 26:70 But he denied it in front of them all: 3  “I don’t know what you’re talking about! 26:71 When 4  he went out to the gateway, another slave girl 5  saw him and said to the people there, “This man was with Jesus the Nazarene.” 26:72 He denied it again with an oath, “I do not know the man! 26:73 After 6  a little while, those standing there came up to Peter and said, “You really are one of them too – even your accent 7  gives you away!” 26:74 At that he began to curse, and he swore with an oath, “I do not know the man!” At that moment a rooster crowed. 8  26:75 Then Peter remembered what Jesus had said: “Before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times.” And he went outside and wept bitterly. 9
