|Then Jesus told them, "This very night you will all fall away on account of me, for it is written:"|
'I will strike the shepherd,
and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.'
But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee." Peter replied, "Even if all fall away on account of you, I never will."
|Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written,|
I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.
But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee. Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.
