66 Meanwhile, Peter was below in the courtyard. One of the servant girls who worked for the high priest
67 noticed Peter warming himself at the fire. She looked at him closely and then said, "You were one of those with Jesus, the Nazarene."
68 Peter denied it. "I don't know what you're talking about," he said, and he went out into the entryway. Just then, a rooster crowed.*1
69 The servant girl saw him standing there and began telling the others, "That man is definitely one of them!"
70 Peter denied it again. A little later some other bystanders began saying to Peter, "You must be one of them because you are from Galilee."
71 Peter said, "I swear by God, I don't know this man you're talking about."
72 And immediately the rooster crowed the second time. Suddenly, Jesus' words flashed through Peter's mind: "Before the rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times." And he broke down and cried.
