Gethsemane - GNT
(Good News Translation)
Matthew 2636Then Jesus went with His disciples to a place called Gethsemane,
and He said to them,
"Sit here while I go over there and pray."
37He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee.
Grief and anguish came over Him,
38and He said to them,
"The sorrow in My heart is so great that it almost crushes Me.
Stay here and keep watch with Me."
39He went a little farther on,
threw Himself face downward on the ground, and prayed,
"My Father, if it is possible, take this cup of suffering from Me!
Yet not what I want, but what You want."
40Then He returned to the three disciples and found them asleep;
and He said to Peter,
"How is it that you three were not able
to keep watch with Me for even one hour?"
42Once more Jesus went away and prayed,
"My Father, if this cup of suffering cannot be taken away unless I drink it,
Your will be done."
