John 13:6-35
Isaiah 53:10-12
Psalm 51:15-19
John 13:6-35
    He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, are you going to wash my feet?"
    [7] Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand."
    [8] "No," said Peter, "you shall never wash my feet."
    Jesus answered, "Unless I wash you, you have no part with me."
    [9] "Then, Lord," Simon Peter replied, "not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!"
    [10] Jesus answered, "A person who has had a bath needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you." [11] For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.
    [12] When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. "Do you understand what I have done for you?" he asked them. [13] "You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and rightly so, for that is what I am. [14] Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet. [15] I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. [16] I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. [17] Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.
    [18] "I am not referring to all of you; I know those I have chosen. But this is to fulfill the scripture: 'He who shares my bread has lifted up his heel against me.'
    [19] "I am telling you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe that I am He. [20] I tell you the truth, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts me; and whoever accepts me accepts the one who sent me."
    [21] After he had said this, Jesus was troubled in spirit and testified, "I tell you the truth, one of you is going to betray me."
    [22] His disciples stared at one another, at a loss to know which of them he meant. [23] One of them, the disciple whom Jesus loved, was reclining next to him. [24] Simon Peter motioned to this disciple and said, "Ask him which one he means."
    [25] Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, "Lord, who is it?"
    [26] Jesus answered, "It is the one to whom I will give this piece of bread when I have dipped it in the dish." Then, dipping the piece of bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, son of Simon. [27] As soon as Judas took the bread, Satan entered into him.
    "What you are about to do, do quickly," Jesus told him, [28] but no one at the meal understood why Jesus said this to him. [29] Since Judas had charge of the money, some thought Jesus was telling him to buy what was needed for the Feast, or to give something to the poor. [30] As soon as Judas had taken the bread, he went out. And it was night.
    [31] When he was gone, Jesus said, "Now is the Son of Man glorified and God is glorified in him. [32] If God is glorified in him, God will glorify the Son in himself, and will glorify him at once.
    [33] "My children, I will be with you only a little longer. You will look for me, and just as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: Where I am going, you cannot come.
    [34] "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. [35] By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."

Isaiah 53:10-12
    Yet it was the Lord's will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
        and though the Lord makes his life a guilt offering,
    he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
        and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.
    [11] After the suffering of his soul,
        he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
    by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
        and he will bear their iniquities.
    [12] Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
        and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
    because he poured out his life unto death,
        and was numbered with the transgressors.
    For he bore the sin of many,
        and made intercession for the transgressors.

Psalm 51:15-19
    O Lord, open my lips,
        and my mouth will declare your praise.
    [16] You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it;
        you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.
    [17] The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
        a broken and contrite heart,
        O God, you will not despise.
    [18] In your good pleasure make Zion prosper;
        build up the walls of Jerusalem.
    [19] Then there will be righteous sacrifices,
        whole burnt offerings to delight you;
        then bulls will be offered on your altar.
