50 And immediately, while he yet spake, cometh
Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves,
from the chief priests and the scribes and elders of the people.
therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?
52 They answered him, Joshua of Nazareth.
saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.

55 Then asked he them again,
Whom seek ye? And they said, Joshua of Nazareth.
56 Joshua answered,

Joshua said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders,
which were come to him, Be ye come out, as
against a thief, with swords and staves to take me?
69 When I sat daily with you in the temple teaching, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.
70 But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled. And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:
71 And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.
