When they had eaten, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these others do?” He answered, “Yes Lord, you know I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.” A second time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” He replied, “Yes, Lord, you know I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Look after my sheep. Then he said to him a third time, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt that he asked him a third time, “Do you love me?” and said, “Lord, you know everything; you know I love.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.
In all truth I tell you,
when you were young
you put on your own belt
and walked where you like;
but when you grow old
you will stretch out your hands,
and somebody else
will put a belt round you
and take you
where you would rather not go.”
In these words he indicated the kind of death by which Peter would give glory to God. After this he said, “Follow me.”
