Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be worthy of death. 65
And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the officers received him with blows of their hands.
66And as Peter was beneath in the court, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest; 67and seeing Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and saith, Thou also wast with the Nazarene, even Jesus. 68But he denied, saying, I neither know, nor understand what thou sayest: and he went out into the porch; and the cock crew. 69And the maid saw him, and began again to say to them that stood by, This is one of them. 70But he again denied it. And after a little while again they that stood by said to Peter, of a truth thou art one of them; for thou art a Galilaean. 71But he began to curse, and to swear, I know not this man of whom ye speak. 72And straightway the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word, how that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.
