John 13:4
Context
Jesus Washes the Disciples' Feet

1Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them to the end. 2And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him; 3Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; 4He rises from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. 5After that he pours water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was girded. 6Then comes he to Simon Peter: and Peter said to him, Lord, do you wash my feet? 7Jesus answered and said to him, What I do you know not now; but you shall know hereafter. 8Peter said to him, You shall never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash you not, you have no part with me. 9Simon Peter said to him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. 10Jesus said to him, He that is washed needs not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and you are clean, but not all. 11For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, You are not all clean. 12So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said to them, Know you what I have done to you? 13You call me Master and Lord: and you say well; for so I am. 14If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; you also ought to wash one another's feet. 15For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. 16Truly, truly, I say to you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him. 17If you know these things, happy are you if you do them.

Treasury of Scripture

He rises from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.

laid aside. That is, his gown, or upper coat, [himatia,] with the girdle by which it was girdled close to his tunic, or inner coat; and instead of his girdle, he tied a towel about him, that he might have it in readiness to dry their feet,and that he might appear as a servant. Indeed the whole action was a servile one; and never performed by a superior to an inferior.
