14:26 After singing a hymn, 1  they went out to the Mount of Olives.

The Prediction of Peter’s Denial

14:27 Then 2  Jesus said to them, “You will all fall away, for it is written,

I will strike the shepherd,

and the sheep will be scattered. 3 

14:28 But after I am raised, I will go ahead of you into Galilee.” 14:29 Peter said to him, “Even if they all fall away, I will not!” 14:30 Jesus said to him, “I tell you the truth, 4  today – this very night – before a rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times.” 14:31 But Peter 5  insisted emphatically, 6  “Even if I must die with you, I will never deny you.” And all of them said the same thing.

1 sn After singing a hymn. The Hallel Psalms (Pss 113-118) were sung during the meal. Psalms 113 and 114 were sung just before the second cup and 115-118 were sung at the end of the meal, after the fourth, or hallel cup.

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