Pray for me! I reckoned if she knowed me she’d take a job that was more nearer her size. But I bet she done it, just the same – she was just that kind. She had the grit to pray for Judus if she took the notion – there warn’t no back-down to her, I judge.

– Mark Twain

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Chapter 28. Huck on Mary Jane Wilks, who is so moved by Huck’s admission about the conmen duo and him helping her, that she promises to pray for him. The quote is an allusion to Judas Iscariot, the disciple who betrayed Christ in the Bible. Huck feels he is a Judas to society for helping slave Jim escape.
