And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes [experts in the law WU] and the elders were assembled. MT 26:57 But Peter followed him afar off [from a distance] unto the high priest's palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end [outcome WU]. MT 26:58 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness [evidence WU] against Jesus, to [that they might] put him to death; MT 26:59 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses, MT 26:60 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days. MT 26:61 And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which [that] these witness [testify] against thee? MT 26:62 But Jesus held his peace [silence WU], And the high priest answered and said unto him,
I adjure [charge WU] thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God. MT 26:63 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said [yes, it is as you say WU]: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on [at] the right hand of power [the Mighty One WU], and coming in [on] the clouds of heaven. MT 26:64
Then the high priest rent [tore] his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy. MT 26:65 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty [worthy] of death. MT 26:66 Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted [beat] him; and others smote [slapped WU] him with the palms of their hands, MT 26:67 Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee? MT 26:68
Now Peter sat without [outside] in the palace: and a damsel [maid] came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee. MT 26:69 But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest. MT 26:70 And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth. MT 26:71 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man. MT 26:72 And after a while [there WU] came unto him they [those] that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech [accent WU] betrayeth thee. MT 26:73 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew [rooster crowed]. MT 26:74 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice [three times]. And he went out, and wept bitterly. MT 26:75
