“The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born.”
King James Version (KJV)
26:24 The Son of man goeth through sufferings to glory, as it is written of him - Yet this is no excuse for him that betrayeth him: miserable will that man be: it had been good for that man if he had not been born - May not the same be said of every man that finally perishes? But who can reconcile this, if it were true of Judas alone, with the doctrine of universal salvation?
Mt 26:24 As it is written of him. "As it was determined" (Lu 22:22), in prophecy. It had been good for that man. A declaration of the awful judgment that would befall the traitor.
