(For Jesus Christ desiring not to do his own will, but the will of his heavenly Father, see Mat. 26:42; Luke 22:42; John 4:34, 5:30, 6:38.)


Mat. 26:43 (LIT/UBS4) And (kai) he having come (elthōn) again (palin) he found (heuren) them (autous) down sleeping (katheudontas), because (gar) the (hoi) eyes (ophthalmoi) of them (autōn) were having been burdened (bebarēmenoi).

Mat. 26:51 (LIT/UBS4) And (kai) behold (idou), one (heis) of the ones (tōn) with (meta) Jesus (Iēsou), having stretched out (ekteinas) the (tēn) hand (cheira), he drew away (apespasen) the (tēn) knife (machairan) of him (autou).

Because (gar) all (pantes) the ones (hoi) having taken (labontes) [a] knife (machairan) shall lose themselves (apolountai) in (en) [a] knife (machairē) [fight, AE]!


Mat. 26:53 (LIT/UBS4) Or (ē) do you conclude (dokeis) that (hoti) I can absolutely not inherently power myself (ou dunamai) to call alongside (parakalesai) the (ton) Father (patera) of me (mou), and (kai) he shall stand alongside (parastēsei) to me (moi) at this time (arti) more than (pleiō) twelve (dōdeka) legions (legiōnas) of messengers (angelōn)!?

Down (kath’) each day (hēmeran) I was causing myself to sit down (ekathezomēn) teaching (didaskōn) in (en) the (tō) sacred place (hierō), and (kai) you absolutely did not powerfully hold (ouk ekratēsate) me (me)!”

Mat. 26:60 (LIT/UBS4) And (kai) they absolutely did not find (ouch heuron) many (pollōn) false witnesses (pseudomarturōn) having come to (proselthontōn) [them, AE]!


But (de) later (husteron) two (duo), having come to (proselthontes) [them, AE], they enunciated (eipan),


Mat. 26:61 (LIT/UBS4) “This one (houtos) was shedding light5346 (ephē), 'I can inherently power myself (dunamai) to bring down (katalusai) the (ton) holy place (naon) of the (tou) God (theou), and (kai) through (dia) [the time, AE] of three (triōn) days (hēmerōn) to build [a] domed-roof house3618 (oikodomēsai)!'”
