NKJVNew King James Version
39#Matt. 26:36; John 18:1Coming out, #Luke 21:37He went to the Mount of Olives, as He was accustomed, and His disciples also followed Him. 40#Matt. 26:36–46; Mark 14:32–42When He came to the place, He said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.”
41#Matt. 26:39; Mark 14:35; (Luke 18:11–14)And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, 42saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless #Is. 50:5; John 4:34; 5:30; 6:38; 8:29not My will, but Yours, be done.” 43Then #Matt. 4:11an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. 44#John 12:27; (Heb. 5:7)And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
45When He rose up from prayer, and had come to His disciples, He found them sleeping from sorrow. 46Then He said to them, “Why #Luke 9:32do you sleep? Rise and #1 Chr. 16:11; Luke 22:40; (Eph. 6:18); 1 Thess. 5:17pray, lest you enter into temptation.”
