36Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane. He said to the disciples, "Stay here while I go and pray over there." 37When he took Peter and Zebedee’s two sons, he began to feel sad and anxious. 38Then he said to them, "I’m very sad. It’s as if I’m dying. Stay here and keep alert with me." 39Then he went a short distance farther and fell on his face and prayed, "My Father, if it’s possible, take this cup of suffering away from me. However—not what I want but what you want." 40He came back to the disciples and found them sleeping. He said to Peter, "Couldn’t you stay alert one hour with me? 41 Stay alert and pray so that you won’t give in to temptation. The spirit is eager, but the flesh is weak." 42A second time he went away and prayed, "My Father, if it’s not possible that this cup be taken away unless I drink it, then let it be what you want." 43Again he came and found them sleeping. Their eyes were heavy with sleep. 44But he left them and again went and prayed the same words for the third time. 45Then he came to his disciples and said to them, "Will you sleep and rest all night? Look, the time has come for the Human One#Or Son of Man to be betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Get up. Let’s go. Look, here comes my betrayer."
