So when they had dined, Jesus saithsaith to SimonSimonPeterPeter, SimonSimon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saithsaith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saithsaith unto him, Feed my lambs.
He saithsaith to him again the second time, SimonSimon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saithsaith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saithsaith unto him, Feed my sheep.
He saithsaith unto him the thirdthird time, SimonSimon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? PeterPeter was grieved because he saidsaid unto him the thirdthird time, Lovest thou me? And he saidsaid unto him, Lord, thou knowest all thingsall things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saithsaith unto him, Feed my sheep.
Verily, verily, I saysay unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretchstretch forth thy handshands, and another shall girdgird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.

Jesus saithsaith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I comecome, what is that to thee? follow thou me.
