They all said that they would not deny Jesus (Mk 14:31-14:31)

“But Peter

Said vehemently.

‘Even though

I must die

With you,

I will not deny you.’

All of them

Said the same.”

 

ὁ δὲ ἐκπερισσῶς ἐλάλει Ἐὰν δέῃ με συναποθανεῖν σοι, οὐ μή σε ἀπαρνήσομαι. ὡσαύτως δὲ καὶ πάντες ἔλεγον

 

This is almost word for word in Matthew, chapter 26:35.  Mark indicated that Peter kept emphatically saying to Jesus (δὲ ἐκπερισσῶς ἐλάλει) that even if it was necessary that he had to die with Jesus (Ἐὰν δέῃ με συναποθανεῖν σοι), he would never deny or repudiate him (οὐ μή σε ἀπαρνήσομαι).  Then all the other disciples said the same thing (ὡσαύτως δὲ καὶ πάντες ἔλεγον).  Thus, all the 12 apostolic leaders exaggerated their own loyalty to Jesus.

Peter is adamant that he would never deny Jesus (Mt 26:35-26:35)

“Peter said to him.

‘Even if I must die

With you,

I will not deny you.

Thus,

All the disciples

Said the same thing.”

 

λέγει αὐτῷ ὁ Πέτρος Κἂν δέῃ με σὺν σοὶ ἀποθανεῖν, οὐ μή σε ἀπαρνήσομαι. ὁμοίως καὶ πάντες οἱ μαθηταὶ εἶπαν.

 

This is almost word for word in Mark, chapter 14:31.  Peter said to Jesus (λέγει αὐτῷ ὁ Πέτρος) that even if it was necessary that he had to die with Jesus (Κἂν δέῃ με σὺν σοὶ ἀποθανεῖν), he would never deny or repudiate him (ὐ μή σε ἀπαρνήσομαι).  Then all the other disciples said the same thing (ὁμοίως καὶ πάντες οἱ μαθηταὶ εἶπαν).  Thus, all the 12 leaders exaggerated their own loyalty to Jesus.

 

Yahweh came from Sinai (Ps 68:17-68:19)

“With mighty chariots,

Twice ten thousand,

Thousands upon thousands,

Yahweh came from Sinai

Into the holy place.

You ascended the high mountain.

You lead captives in your train.

You received gifts from people,

Even from those who rebel against

Yahweh God’s abiding there.

Blessed be Yahweh!

He daily bears us up!

God is our salvation!”

Selah

Yahweh had 20,000 chariots lead him from Mount Sinai to the new Mount Zion in Jerusalem. This seems a little exaggerated. He came into the new holy place leaving many captives along the way. Everyone gave him gifts, even those opposed to his stay at Mount Zion. Once again, this section ended with the musical interlude pause, the Selah. This came after the refrain that Yahweh was blessed, that God was their salvation.
