Rise, let us go: behold he is at hand that will betray me.  As he yet spoke, behold Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests and the ancients of the people.  And he that betrayed him, gave them a sign, saying: Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is he, hold him fast.  And forthwith coming to Jesus, he said: Hail, Rabbi. And he kissed him. And Jesus said to him: Friend, whereto art thou come? Then they came up, and laid hands on Jesus, and held him.
Matthew, Ch. 26, v.46-50 [Douai Rheims translation of the Vulgate]
