Yokhanan 13 – יוחנן יג


1Now before Khag HaPesakh, Yeshua knew the hour had come to depart from this world to His Father. He loved His own who were in this world, and He loved them to the end.  2When supper ended, HaSatan put into the heart of Yehudah Ben Shimon of Sekharyotah, to betray Him.  3But Yeshua, because He knew that HaAv had given everything into His hands, and that He came from Elohim and was going to Elohim, 4rose from supper and laid aside His robe; and He took a cloth and tied it around His loins.  5Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the feet of His Talmidim, and to wipe them with the cloth which was tied around His loins.  6When He came to Shimon Kefa, Shimon said to Him, “Are you, My Adon, going to wash my feet?”  7Yeshua answered, saying to him, “What I am doing, you do not know now, but later you will understand.”  8Then Shimon Kefa said to Him, “You will never wash my feet.”  Yeshua said to him, “If I do not wash you, you have no part with me.”  9Shimon Kefa said to Him, “Then, My Adon, wash not only my feet, but also my hands and my head.”  10Yeshua said to him,  “He who has bathed does not need to wash except his feet only, for he is already all clean; so you are all clean, but not every one of you.”   11For Yeshua knew him who was to betray Him; therefore He said, “Not every one of you is clean.”  12When He had washed their feet, He put on His robes and sat down; and He said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you?  13You call me “Rabbeinu” and “Adoneinu”; and what you say is well, for I am.  14If I then, your Adon and your Rabbi, have washed your feet, how much more should you wash one another’s feet?  15For I have given you this as an example, so that just as I have done to you, you should also do.  16Amein, Amein, I say to you, there is no servant who is greater than his master; and no Shali’akh who is greater than He who sent him.  17If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.”

18“I do not say this concerning all of you, for I know those whom I have chosen; but that the scripture might be fulfilled, “He who eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me,”  19I tell you now before it happens, that when it happens, you may believe that I am He.  20Amein, Amein, I say to you, He who receives him whom I send receives me; and he who receives me receives Him who sent me.”  21Yeshua said these things, and He was disturbed in spirit, and testified, saying, “Amein, Amein, I say to you, one of you will betray me.”  22The Talmidim then looked at each other, because they did not know concerning whom He spoke.  23Now there was one of His Talmidim who was leaning on his bosom, the one whom Yeshua loved.  24Shimon Kefa beckoned to him, to ask Him of whom He spoke.  25So that talmid leaned himself on the breast of Yeshua, and said to Him, “My Adon, who is he?”  26Yeshua answered, saying, “The one for whom I dip bread and give it to him.”  So Yeshua dipped the bread, and gave it to Yehudah Ben Shimon of Sekharyotah.  27And after the bread, HaSatan took possession of him. So Yeshua said to him, “What you are going to do, do it quickly.”  28But no man of those who were sitting at the table understood what He said to him.  29For some of them thought, because the purse was with Yehudah, that He ordered him to buy what was needed for the Khag, or to give something to the poor.  30So Yehudah then received the bread and went outside immediately; and it was night when he went out.

31Yeshua then said, “Now Ben HaAdam is glorified, and Elohim is glorified by Him.  32If Elohim is glorified by Him, Elohim will also glorify Him in Himself, and He will glorify Him at once.  33My sons, I am with you yet a little while, and you will seek me. And just as I said to the Y’hudim, ‘Where I go you cannot come’; the same I now tell you also.  34A renewal of a mitzvah I give you, that you love one another; just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.  35By this every man shall know that you are my Talmidim, if you have love one for another.”

36Shimon Kefa said to Him, “Adoneinu, where are you going?” Yeshua answered, saying to him, “Where I go you cannot follow me now, but you will follow later.”  37Shimon Kefa said to Him, “My Adon, why can I not follow you now? I will even lay down my life for you.”  38Yeshua said to him, “Will you lay down your life for me? Amein, Amein, I say to you, the cock shall not crow until you have denied me three times.”
