Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation,
I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the
faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. Jude 1:3 (NKJ)
Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to His disciples,
"Sit here while I go over there and pray." And He took with Him Peter and the two
sons of Zebedee, and began to be grieved and distressed. Then He said to them, "My
soul is deeply grieved, to the point of death; remain here and keep watch with Me."
And He went a little beyond them, and fell on His face and prayed, saying, "My Father,
if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as Thou wilt."
And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, "So, you
men could not keep watch with Me for one hour? Keep watching and praying, that you
may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
He went away again a second time and prayed, saying, "My Father, if this cannot
pass away unless I drink it, Thy will be done." And again He came and found them
sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. And He left them again, and went away and
prayed a third time, saying the same thing once more.
Then He came to the disciples, and said to them, "Are you still sleeping and taking
your rest? Behold, the hour is at hand and the Son of Man is being betrayed into
the hands of sinners. Arise, let us be going; behold, the one who betrays Me is
at hand!" Matthew 26:36-46 (NAS)
"The LORD your God is in your midst, a victorious warrior.
"He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice
over you with shouts of joy." Zephaniah 3:17 (NAS)
