1 And straightway in the morning the chief priests with the elders and scribes, and the whole Sanhedrin, held a consultation, and bound :Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him up to Pilate. 2 And :Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering him, saith, Thou sayest. 3 And the chief priests accused him of many things. 4 And :Pilate again asked him, saying, Answerest thou nothing? See how many things they accuse thee of. 5 But :Jesus answered nothing more; so that Pilate marveled. 6 Now at the feast he would release to them one prisoner, whom they asked of him. 7 And the one called Barabbas was bound with the insurgents, men who in the insurrection had committed murder. 8 And the crowd went up and began to ask him to do as he was wont to do to them. 9 And :Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release to you the King of the Jews? 10 For he perceived that for envy the chief priests had delivered him up. 11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd, that he should rather release :Barabbas to them. 12 And Pilate again answered and said to them, What then shall I do to him whom ye call the King of the Jews? 13 And they cried out again, Crucify him. 14 And :Pilate said to them, What evil, pray, hath he done? But they cried out exceedingly, Crucify him. 15 And :Pilate wishing to content the crowd, released to them :Barabbas, and delivered :Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.
16 And the soldiers led him away within the court, which is the Prætorium; and they call together the whole band. 17 And they clothe him with purple, and platting a crown of thorns, they put it on him; 18 and they began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews! 19 And they smote his :head with a reed, and spat upon him, and bowing their knees worshiped him. 20 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. 21 And they compel one passing by, Simon of Cyrene, coming from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, that he might bear his :cross. 22 And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, Place of a skull. 23 And they gave him wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not. 24 And they crucify him, and part his :garments among them, casting lots upon them, what each should take. 25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him. 26 And the inscription of his :accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS. 27 And with him they crucify two robbers; one on his right, and one on his left. 29 And the passers by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ha! thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, 30 save thyself, and come down from the cross. 31 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him among themselves with the scribes said, He saved others, himself he cannot save. 32 Let the Christ, the King of Israel, now come down from the cross, that we might see and believe. And those crucified with him reproached him. 33 And when the sixth hour was come, darkness came over the whole earth until the ninth hour. 34 And at the ninth hour :Jesus cried with a loud voice, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthanei? which is, being interpreted, My :God, my :God, why hast thou forsaken me? 35 And some of the bystanders, when they heard it, said, See, he calleth Elijah. 36 And one ran, and filling a sponge with vinegar, put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let be; let us see whether Elijah cometh to take him down. 37 And :Jesus uttered a loud voice, and expired. 38 And the veil of the sanctuary was rent in two from top to bottom. 39 And when the centurion, who stood by over against him, saw that he thus expired, he said, Truly this :man was God’s Son. 40 And there were also women beholding from afar: among whom were both Mariam :Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the little and of Joses, and Salōmē; 41 who, when he was in :Galilee, followed him, and ministered to him; and many other women that came up with him unto Jerusalem.
42 And when evening was now come, since it was the Preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath, 43 Joseph of Arimathæa came, a councilor 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. 44 And :Pilate marveled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, asked him if he were already dead. 45 And when he learned it of the centurion, he granted the corpse to :Joseph. 46 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. 47 And :Mary :Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.
