Luke 22:14-38 (Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition.)
14And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.
15And he said to them: With desire I have desired to eat this pasch with you, before I suffer.
16For I say to you, that from this time I will not eat it, till it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
17And having taken the chalice, he gave thanks, and said: Take, and divide it among you:
18For I say to you, that I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, till the kingdom of God come.
19And taking bread, he gave thanks, and brake; and gave to them, saying: This is my body, which is given for you. Do this for a commemoration of me.
20In like manner the chalice also, after he had supped, saying: This is the chalice, the new testament in my blood, which shall be shed for you.
21But yet behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.
22And the Son of man indeed goeth, according to that which is determined: but yet, woe to that man by whom he shall be betrayed.
23And they began to inquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing.
24And there was also a strife amongst them, which of them should seem to be the greater.
25And he said to them: The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and they that have power over them, are called beneficent.
26But you not so: but he that is the greater among you, let him become as the younger; and he that is the leader, as he that serveth.
27For which is greater, he that sitteth at table, or he that serveth? Is it not he that sitteth at table? But I am in the midst of you, as he that serveth:
28And you are they who have continued with me in my temptations:
29And I dispose to you, as my Father hath disposed to me, a kingdom;
30That you may eat and drink at my table, in my kingdom: and may sit upon thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
31And the Lord said: Simon, Simon, behold Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
32But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and thou, being once converted, confirm thy brethren.
33Who said to him: Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.
34And he said: I say to thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, till thou thrice deniest that thou knowest me. And he said to them:
35When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, did you want anything?
36But they said: Nothing. Then said he unto them: But now he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise a scrip; and he that hath not, let him sell his coat, and buy a sword.
37For I say to you, that this that is written must yet be fulfilled in me: And with the wicked was he reckoned. For the things concerning me have an end.
38But they said: Lord, behold here are two swords. And he said to them, It is enough.
