“Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.”
King James Version (KJV)
Mt 26:38 My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even unto death. The weight of woe was literally crushing out the Savior's life. Tarry ye here, and watch with me. He had wished his chosen disciples to be near him in his woe; and yet, as it advanced, he felt that he must retire even from them, and be alone with himself and his Father.
