Chapter 19John


1 :Pilate therefore took :Jesus then, and scourged him. 2 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his :head, and arrayed him in a purple garment; 3 and came unto him, and said, Hail, :King of the Jews! and they gave him blows. 4 And :Pilate went outside again, and saith to them, Behold, I bring him out to you, that ye may know that I find no crime in him. 5 :Jesus therefore came outside, wearing the thorny crown and the purple garment. And Pilate saith to them, Behold, the man! 6 When therefore the chief priests and the officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify, crucify him! :Pilate saith to them, Take YE him, and crucify: for I find no crime in him. 7 The Jews answered him, WE have a law, and according to the law he ought to die, because he made himself God’s Son. 8 When :Pilate therefore heard this word, he was the more afraid; 9 and he entered into the Prætorium again, and saith to :Jesus, Whence art THOU? But :Jesus gave him no answer. 10 :Pilate therefore saith to him, Speakest thou not to me? knowest thou not that I have authority to release thee, and have authority to crucify thee? 11 Jesus answered him, Thou wouldest have no authority against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore who delivered me unto thee hath greater sin. 12 Upon this :Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou release this man, thou art not :Cæsar’s friend: every one that maketh himself king speaketh against :Cæsar. 13 When :Pilate therefore heard these :words, he brought :Jesus out, and sat down on the judgment-seat at a place called Pavement, but in Hebrew, Gabbatha. 14 Now it was Preparation of the passover: it was about the sixth hour. And he saith to the Jews, Behold, your :King! 15 THEY therefore cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him! Saith :Pilate to them, Shall I crucify your :King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Cæsar. 16 Then therefore he delivered him to them to be crucified.
17 They took :Jesus therefore: and he went out, bearing the cross for himself, unto the place called Place of Skull, which is called in Hebrew Golgotha: 18 where they crucified him, and with him two others, on either side one, and :Jesus in the midst. 19 And :Pilate wrote a title also, and put it on the cross. And it was written, JESUS THE NAZOREAN, THE KING OF THE JEWS. 20 This :title therefore read many of the Jews, for the place where :Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, Latin, Greek. 21 The chief priests of the Jews therefore said to :Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but, that HE said, I am King of the Jews. 22 :Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.
23 The soldiers therefore, when they had crucified :Jesus, took his :garments and made four parts, to every soldier a part; also the coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. 24 They said therefore one unto another, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture be fulfilled,
They parted my :garments among themselves, And upon my :vesture they cast a lot.
25 These things therefore the soldiers did. But by the cross of :Jesus were standing his :mother, and the sister of his :mother, Mary the wife of :Clopas, and Mary :Magdalene. 26 When Jesus therefore saw his :mother, and the disciple standing by whom he loved, he saith to his :mother, Woman, behold, thy :son! 27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold, thy :mother! And from that :hour the disciple took her unto his own home.
28 After this :Jesus, knowing that all things are now finished, that the scripture be accomplished, saith, I thirst. 29 A vessel full of vinegar was set there; so they put a sponge full of the vinegar upon hyssop, and brought it to his :mouth. 30 When :Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head and gave up his :spirit. 31 The Jews therefore, since it was Preparation, that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the sabbath (for of that :sabbath the day was high), asked :Pilate that their :legs be broken, and they be taken away. 32 The soldiers therefore came, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other that was crucified with him: 33 but when they came to :Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his :legs: 34 but one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his :side, and straightway blood and water came out. 35 And who hath seen hath borne witness, and his :witness is true: and HE knoweth that he saith true, that YE also may believe. 36 For these things came to pass, that the scripture be fulfilled, Not a bone of him shall be crushed. 37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look to whom they have pierced.

38 And after these things Joseph of Arimathæa, being a disciple of :Jesus, but secretly for :fear of the Jews, asked :Pilate that he might take away the body of :Jesus: and :Pilate gave leave. He came therefore, and took away his :body. 39 And Nicodemus also came (who at the first came to him by night) bringing a roll of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds. 40 They took therefore the body of :Jesus, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury. 41 Now in the place where he was crucified was a garden; and in the garden a new tomb wherein man was never yet laid. 42 There then because of the Jews’ Preparation (because the tomb was near) they laid :Jesus.
