26 Revised Standard Version Passage

47While he was still speaking, Judas came, one of the twelve, and with him a great crowd with swords and clubs, from the chief priests and the elders of the people. The Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus   Mt.26.47-56 ( Gethsemane ) | Mk.14.43-50 | Lk.22.47-53 | Jn.18.3-12
48Now the betrayer had given them a sign, saying, "The one I shall kiss is the man; seize him." 
49And he came up to Jesus at once and said, "Hail, Master Or: Rabbi !" And he kissed him. 
50Jesus said to him, "Friend, why are you here? Or: do that for which you have come" Then they came up and laid hands on Jesus and seized him. 
51And behold, one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his sword, and struck the slave of the high priest, and cut off his ear. 
52Then Jesus said to him, "Put your sword back into its place; for all who take the sword will perish by the sword. 
53Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels? 
54But how then should the scriptures be fulfilled, that it must be so?" 
55At that hour Jesus said to the crowds, "Have you come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs to capture me? Day after day I sat in the temple teaching, and you did not seize me. 
56But all this has taken place, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled." Then all the disciples forsook him and fled.
