the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate.
they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying
that he himself is Christ a King.
asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said, Thou sayest it.
4Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this
5And they were the more fierce, saying,
He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.
6When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilaean.
7And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him
to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.
when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things
of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him.
he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing.
10And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused him.
11And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed
him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate.
the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves.
13And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and
14Said unto them, Ye have brought
this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in
this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him:
nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him.
16I will therefore chastise him, and release him.
17(For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)
18And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto
19(Who for a certain sedition
made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.)
therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them.
they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.
he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise
him, and let him go.
23And they were instant
with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.
24And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required.
25And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison,
whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will.
as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross,
that he might bear it after Jesus.
followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him.
28But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but
weep for yourselves, and for your children.
behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps
which never gave suck.
30Then shall they begin
to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
31For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
32And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.
33And when they were come to the place, which
is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.
34Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they
parted his raiment, and cast lots.
people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be
Christ, the chosen of God.
36And the soldiers
also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar,
saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.
a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
39And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be
Christ, save thyself and us.
40But the other
answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
41And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man
hath done nothing amiss.
42And he said unto
Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.
44And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth
until the ninth hour.
45And the sun was darkened,
and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave
up the ghost.
47Now when the centurion saw
what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
48And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote
their breasts, and returned.
49And all his
acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.
50And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man,
and a just:
51(The same had not consented
to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God.
52This man went unto Pilate, and begged the
body of Jesus.
53And he took it down, and
wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.
54And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.
55And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld
the sepulchre, and how his body was laid.
they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
