26:47 While he was still speaking, Judas, 2 one of the twelve, arrived. With him was a large crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent by the chief priests and elders of the people. 26:48 (Now the betrayer 3 had given them a sign, saying, “The one I kiss is the man. 4 Arrest him!”) 5 26:49 Immediately 6 he went up to Jesus and said, “Greetings, Rabbi,” and kissed him. 7 26:50 Jesus 8 said to him, “Friend, do what you are here to do.” Then they came and took hold 9 of Jesus and arrested him.
