Matthew 26 verses 36-46 – King James Version
26: 36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.

26: 37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.

26: 38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

26: 39 And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

26: 40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

26: 41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

26: 42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.

26: 43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.

26: 44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.

26: 45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

26: 46 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.
