the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:
2And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate
3Then Judas, which had betrayed
him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests
4Saying, I have sinned in that
I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.
5And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and
6And the chief priests took
the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.
7And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers
8Wherefore that field was called, The
field of blood, unto this day.
9Then was fulfilled
that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was
valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;
gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord appointed me.
Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him,
12And when he was accused of
the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.
said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?
14And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly.
15Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner,
whom they would.
16And they had then a notable
prisoner, called Barabbas.
they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called
18For he knew that for envy they had
19When he was set down on the
judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things
this day in a dream because of him.
the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.
21The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I
release unto you? They said, Barabbas.
saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
23And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more,
saying, Let him be crucified.
saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude,
saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
25Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
26Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered
him to be crucified.
27Then the soldiers of
the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.
28And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
29And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a
reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
30And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.
31And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put
his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
33And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place
of a skull,
34They gave him vinegar to drink
mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
35And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was
spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
36And sitting down they watched him there;
37And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE
38Then were there two thieves crucified
with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.
they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,
saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down
from the cross.
41Likewise also the chief
priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,
saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe
43He trusted in God; let him deliver
him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.
thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.
45Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
46And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama
sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
47Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
48And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar,
and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.
50Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
51And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom;
and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
53And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto
54Now when the centurion, and they that
were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this
was the Son of God.
55And many women were
there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:
56Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedees
57When the even was come, there
came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple:
58He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
59And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped
it in a clean linen cloth,
60And laid it in
his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.
61And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other
Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.
the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,
63Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After
three days I will rise again.
that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the
people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.
65Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can.
66So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.
