- And straightway in the morning the chief priests with the elders and scribes, and the whole council, held a consultation, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him up to Pilate.
- And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews?
And he answering saith unto him, Thou sayest.
- And the chief priests accused him of many things.
- And Pilate again asked him, saying, Answerest thou nothing?
behold how many things they accuse thee of.
- But Jesus no more answered anything;
insomuch that Pilate marvelled.
- Now at the feast he used to release unto them one prisoner, whom they asked of him.
- And there was one called Barabbas, [lying] bound with them that had made insurrection, men who in the insurrection had committed murder.
- And the multitude went up and began to ask him [to do] as he was wont to do unto them.
- And Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?
- For he perceived that for envy the chief priests had delivered him up.
- But the chief priests stirred up the multitude, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.
- And Pilate again answered and said unto them, What then shall I do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews?
- And they cried out again, Crucify him.
- And Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done?
But they cried out exceedingly, Crucify him.
- And Pilate, wishing to content the multitude, released unto them Barabbas, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.
- And the soldiers led him away within the court, which is the Praetorium;
and they call together the whole band.
- And they clothe him with purple, and platting a crown of thorns, they put it on him;
- and they began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!
- And they smote his head with a reed, and spat upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him.
- And when they had mocked him, they took off from him the purple, and put on him his garments.
And they lead him out to crucify him.
- And they compel one passing by, Simon of Cyrene, coming from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to go [with them], that he might bear his cross.
- And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.
- And they offered him wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.
- And they crucify him, and part his garments among them, casting lots upon them, what each should take.
- And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.
- And the superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
- And with him they crucify two robbers;
one on his right hand, and one on his left.
- [And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was reckoned with transgressors.]
- And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ha!
Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,
- save thyself, and come down from the cross.
- In like manner also the chief priests mocking [him] among themselves with the scribes said, He saved others;
himself he cannot save.
- Let the Christ, the King of Israel, now come down from the cross, that we may see and believe.
And they that were crucified with him reproached him.
- And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
- And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?
which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
- And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elijah.
- And one ran, and filling a sponge full of vinegar, put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let be;
let us see whether Elijah cometh to take him down.
- And Jesus uttered a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
- And the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom.
- And when the centurion, who stood by over against him, saw that he so gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.
- And there were also women beholding from afar: among whom [were] both Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;
- who, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him;
and many other women that came up with him unto Jerusalem.
- And when even was now come, because it was the Preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath,
- there came Joseph of Arimathaea, a councillor of honorable estate, who also himself was looking for the kingdom of God;
and he boldly went in unto Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus.
- And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead.
- And when he learned it of the centurion, he granted the corpse to Joseph.
- And he bought a linen cloth, and taking him down, wound him in the linen cloth, and laid him in a tomb which had been hewn out of a rock;
and he rolled a stone against the door of the tomb.
- And Mary Magdalene and Mary the [mother] of Joses beheld where he was laid.
