Mark 14:43-52
Matthew 26:47-56
Luke 22:47-53
John 18:2-11

And immediately as he was still speaking,
Judas, one of the twelve, arrives,
and with him a crowd with swords and clubs
from the high priests and the scholars and the elders.
And the one giving him over had given them a signal
saying, "Whoever I kiss is he;
seize him and lead him away securely."

And coming immediately approaching him
he says, "Rabbi," and he kissed him;
and they laid their hands on him and seized him.

But one of those standing by drawing his sword
struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his ear.

And Jesus answering said to them, "As against a robber
have you come out with swords and clubs to arrest me?
I was with you every day teaching in the temple,
and you did not seize me;
however, it is so that the scriptures may be fulfilled."

And leaving him they all fled.
And a certain youth accompanied him
wearing a tunic over his nakedness, and they seized him;
and leaving behind the tunic he fled naked.
Mark 14:43-52

And as he was still speaking,
look, Judas, one of the twelve, came,
and with him a large crowd with swords and clubs
from the high priests and elders of the people.
And the one giving him over gave them a sign
saying, "Whomever I kiss is he; seize him."

And immediately approaching Jesus
he said, "Hello, Rabbi," and kissed him.

And Jesus said to him, "Comrade, what have you come for?"
Then approaching they laid their hands on Jesus and seized him.
And look, one of those with Jesus
reaching out his hand drew his sword,
and striking the servant of the high priest cut off his ear.

Then Jesus says to him,, "Put back your sword in its place;
for all who take a sword will die by a sword.
Or do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father,
and he will provide me now
with more than twelve legions of angels?
Then how may the scriptures be fulfilled
that it must happen like this?"

In that hour Jesus said to the crowds, "As against a robber
have you come out with swords and clubs to arrest me?
Every day I was sitting in the temple teaching,
and you did not seize me.
But this whole thing has happened
so that the scriptures of the prophets may be fulfilled."
Then leaving him all the disciples fled.
Matthew 26:47-56

As he was still speaking, look, a crowd,
and the one called Judas, one of the twelve, came before them,
and he drew near to Jesus to kiss him.

But Jesus said to him, "Judas,
do you give over the human son with a kiss?"

And those around him seeing what was going to happen
said, "Lord, shall we strike with a sword?"
And one of them struck the high priest's servant
and cut off his right ear.

But Jesus answering said, "No more of this!"
And touching the ear he cured him.

And Jesus said to the high priests
and officers of the temple and elders
who had come against him,
"As against a robber have you come out with swords and clubs?
While I was with you every day in the temple
you did not reach out your hands against me;
but this is your hour and the authority of darkness."
Luke 22:47-53

And Judas, the one giving him over, also knew the place,
for often Jesus met there with his disciples.
So Judas taking the cohort
and officials from the high priests and Pharisees
comes there with torches and lanterns and weapons.

So Jesus aware of everything that was coming upon him
went and said to them, "Who are you looking for?"

They answered him, "Jesus the Nazarene."

He says to them, "I am he."
And Judas, the one giving him over also stood with them.
So when he told them, "I am he,"
they went back and fell on the ground.
So again he questioned them, "Who are you looking for?"

And they said, "Jesus the Nazarene."

Jesus answered, "I told you that I am he;
therefore if you are looking for me, allow these to go;"
so that the word which he said might be fulfilled,
"Those you gave me, I have not lost any of them."

So Simon Peter having a sword
drew it and struck the high priest's servant
and cut off his right ear;
and the name of the servant was Malchus.

So Jesus said to Peter, "Put the sword into the sheath;
the cup which the Father has given to me,
shall I not drink it?"
John 18:2-11
