Holman Christian Standard Bible

31Then # Mt 16:21-28; Lk 9:21-27 He began to teach them that the Son of Man # Mk 2:10 must suffer many things and be rejected # Mt 21:42; Mk 12:10; Lk 9:22; 17:25; 20:17; Heb 12:17; 1Pt 2:4,7 by the elders, # 3Jn 1 the chief priests, and the scribes, # Mt 2:4 be killed, and rise # Mt 16:21; Lk 18:33; Ac 2:24 after three days. # Lk 9:22 32He was openly talking about this. So Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him.
33But turning around and looking at His disciples, He rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind Me, Satan, # Mt 4:1,10; Ac 13:10 because you’re not thinking about God’s concerns, # Lit about the things of God but man’s! ”
Take Up Your Cross
