I was curious about this one as it does not appear to be Horace Andy singing, I found this explanation here :

In 1973, singing producer Keith Hudson released the romantic "True True to My Heart" and the socially conscious "Fight on Fight On," both utilizing the same simmering riddim, while I-Roy provided the DJ version, "Silver Platter." But Hudson wasn't done with the riddim yet: other versions were released, including the Rastafarian-themed "Peter & Judas." Although Horace Andy takes top billing on this single, in fact he only provides backing vocals, with Earl Flute (better known as guitarist Earl "Chinna" Smith) handling the emotive lead. "Love Rasta Far I and live, curse Him and die," he begins, and then quoting directly from Psalms 1:1, offers up the message "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly...nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful." The song's final lyric, "no sitteth a Satan's side," would entitle Augustus Pablo's solo shot on the riddim, "Satan Side Version." "Peter & Judas"'s title, incidentally, references "The Betrayer," a single that paired Smith and Hudson. As with all of Hudson's versions, each served its own distinct purpose, and this haunting, deeply religious number gave wonderful voice to the deep faith of the producer and singers.

Quite a confusing one in many ways, the lyrics on this include "Satan side..." but its not the same track as Keith Hudson "Satan Side" and while I was looking around I found it referred to as "Peter and Judas (The Betrayer)" but its not the same as the Earl Flute track "The Betrayer"...!
