Matthew 26:31-35

Context
The Prediction of Peter’s Denial

26:31 Then Jesus said to them, “This night you will all fall away because of me, for it is written:

I will strike the shepherd,

and the sheep of the flock will be scattered. 1 

26:32 But after I am raised, I will go ahead of you into Galilee.” 26:33 Peter 2  said to him, “If they all fall away because of you, I will never fall away!” 26:34 Jesus said to him, “I tell you the truth, 3  on this night, before the rooster crows, you will deny me three times.” 26:35 Peter said to him, “Even if I must die with you, I will never deny you.” And all the disciples said the same thing.

1 sn A quotation from Zech 13:7.

2 tn Grk “answering, Peter said to him.” This is somewhat redundant and has been simplified in the translation. Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

3 tn Grk “Truly (ἀμήν, amhn), I say to you.”
