Unchecked Copy BoxMat 26:61 - and said, "This man said, 'I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.'"

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 26:72 - Again he denied it with an oath, "I don't know the man."
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 26:73 - After a little while those who stood by came and said to Rock, "Surely you are also one of them, for your speech makes you known."
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 26:74 - Then he began to curse and to swear, "I don't know the man!" Immediately the cock crowed.
Unchecked Copy BoxMat 26:75 - Rock remembered the word which Yeshua had said to him, "Before the cock crows, you will deny me three times." He went out and wept bitterly.
