And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What! could ye not watch with me one hour?

Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation; The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my father, if this cup may
