THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Matthew (Author Matthew)

26:51And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest's, and smote off his ear.

26:52Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.

26:53Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?

26:54But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

26:55In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.

26:56But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.
