1 And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate.

1 Then their whole assembly rose up and brought Him before Pilate.

1 Then the whole crowd got up and took him to Pilate.

1 Then the whole assembly of them got up and conducted [Jesus] before Pilate.

2 And they began to accuse Him, saying, "We found this man misleading our nation and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, and saying that He Himself is Christ, a King."

2 And 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.

2 They began to accuse Him, saying, "We found this man subverting our nation, opposing payment of taxes to Caesar, and saying that He Himself is the Messiah, a King."

2 They began to accuse him, "We found this man corrupting our nation, forbidding us to pay taxes to Caesar, and saying that he is the Messiah, a king."

2 And they began to accuse Him, asserting, We found this Man perverting (misleading, corrupting, and turning away) our nation and forbidding to pay tribute to Caesar, saying that He Himself is Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One), a King!

3 So Pilate asked Him, saying, "Are You the King of the Jews?" And He answered him and said, "It is as you say."

3 And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said, Thou sayest it.

3 So Pilate asked Him, "Are You the King of the Jews?" He answered him, "You have said it."

3 Then Pilate asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?" He answered, "You say so."

3 So Pilate asked Him, Are You the King of the Jews? And He answered him, [ It is just as] you say. [I Am.]

4 Then Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds, "I find no guilt in this man."

4 Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man.

4 Pilate then told the chief priests and the crowds, "I find no grounds for charging this man."

Pilate Sends Jesus To Herod

5 But they kept on insisting, saying, "He stirs up the people, teaching all over Judea, starting from Galilee even as far as this place."

5 And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.

5 But they kept insisting, "He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judea, from Galilee where He started even to here."

5 But they kept insisting, "He is stirring up the people with what he teaches all over Judea, from where he started in Galilee to this place."

6 When Pilate heard it, he asked whether the man was a Galilean.

6 When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilaean.

6 When Pilate heard this, he asked if the man was a Galilean.

6 When Pilate heard this, he asked whether the man was a Galilean.

6 Upon hearing this, Pilate asked whether the Man was a Galilean.

7 And when he learned that He belonged to Herod's jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who himself also was in Jerusalem at that time.

7 And 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.

7 Finding that He was under Herod's jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem during those days.

7 When he learned with certainty that Jesus came from Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him off to Herod, who was in Jerusalem at that time.

7 And when he found out [certainly] that He belonged to Herod's jurisdiction, he sent Him up to Herod [a higher authority], who was also in Jerusalem in those days.

8 Now Herod was very glad when he saw Jesus; for he had wanted to see Him for a long time, because he had been hearing about Him and was hoping to see some sign performed by Him.

8 And 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.

8 Herod was very glad to see Jesus; for a long time he had wanted to see Him, because he had heard about Him and was hoping to see some miracle performed by Him.

8 Now Herod was very glad to see Jesus, because he had been wanting to see him for a long time on account of what he had heard about him. He was also hoping to see some sign done by him.

8 Now when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceedingly glad, for he had eagerly desired to see Him for a long time because of what he had heard concerning Him, and he was hoping to witness some sign (some striking evidence or spectacular performance) done by Him.

9 And he questioned Him at some length; but He answered him nothing.

9 Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing.

9 So he kept asking Him questions, but Jesus did not answer him.

9 So he continued to question him for a long time, but Jesus gave him no answer at all.

9 So he asked Him many questions, but He made no reply.

10 And the chief priests and the scribes were standing there, accusing Him vehemently.

10 And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused him.

10 The chief priests and the scribes stood by, vehemently accusing Him.

10 Meanwhile, the high priests and the scribes stood nearby and continued to accuse him vehemently.

10 Meanwhile, the chief priests and the scribes stood by, continuing vehemently and violently to accuse Him.

11 And Herod with his soldiers, after treating Him with contempt and mocking Him, dressed Him in a gorgeous robe and sent Him back to Pilate.

11 And 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.

11 Then Herod, with his soldiers, treated Him with contempt, mocked Him, dressed Him in a brilliant robe, and sent Him back to Pilate.

11 Even Herod and his soldiers treated him with contempt and made fun of him. He put a magnificent robe on Jesus and sent him back to Pilate.

11 And Herod, with his soldiers, treated Him with contempt and scoffed at and ridiculed Him; then, dressing Him up in bright and gorgeous apparel, he sent Him back to Pilate.

12 Now Herod and Pilate became friends with one another that very day; for before they had been enemies with each other.

12 And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves.

12 That very day Herod and Pilate became friends. Previously, they had been hostile toward each other.

12 So Herod and Pilate became friends with each other that very day. Before this they had been enemies.

12 And that very day Herod and Pilate became friends with each other -- "[though] they had been at enmity before this.

13 Then Pilate called the high priests, the other leaders, and the people together

13 Pilate then called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people,

14 and said to them, "You brought this man to me as one who incites the people to rebellion, and behold, having examined Him before you, I have found no guilt in this man regarding the charges which you make against Him.

14 Said 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:

14 and said to them, "You have brought me this man as one who subverts the people. But in fact, after examining Him in your presence, I have found no grounds to charge this man with those things you accuse Him of

14 and told them, "You brought this man to me as one who turns the people against the government. And here in your presence I have examined him and have found him "Not Guilty' of the charges you make against him.

14 And said to them, You brought this Man before me as One Who was perverting and misleading and turning away and corrupting the people; and behold, after examining Him before you, I have not found any offense (crime or guilt) in this Man in regard to your accusations against Him;

15 "No, nor has Herod, for he sent Him back to us; and behold, nothing deserving death has been done by Him.

15 No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him.

15 Neither has Herod, because he sent Him back to us. Clearly, He has done nothing to deserve death.

15 Neither does Herod, because he sent him back to us! Indeed, this man has done nothing to deserve death.

15 No, nor indeed did Herod, for he sent Him back to us; behold, He has done nothing deserving of death.

16 "Therefore I will punish Him and release Him."

16 I will therefore chastise him, and release him.

16 Therefore I will have Him whipped; to discipline or "teach a lesson"; 1 Kg 12:11 , 14 LXX; 2 Ch 10:11 , 14 ; perhaps a way of referring to the Roman scourging; Lat flagellatio and [then] release Him." [

16 So I will punish him and let him go."

16 I will therefore chastise Him and deliver Him amended (reformed, taught His lesson) and release Him.

17 [Now he was obliged to release to them at the feast one prisoner.]

17 (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)

17 For according to the festival he had to release someone to them.]

17 Now he was obligated to release someone for them at the festival.

17 For it was necessary for him to release to them one prisoner at the Feast.

18 But they cried out all together, saying, "Away with this man, and release for us Barabbas!"

18 And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas:

18 Then they all cried out together, "Take this man away! Release Barabbas to us!"

18 But they all shouted out together, "Away with this man! Release Barabbas for us!"

18 But they all together raised a deep cry [from the depths of their throats], saying, Away with this Man! Release to us Barabbas!

19 (He was one who had been thrown into prison for an insurrection made in the city, and for murder.)

19 (Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.)

19 (He had been thrown into prison for a rebellion that had taken place in the city, and for murder.)

19 (This man had been put in prison for murder and for a revolt that had taken place in the city.)

20 Pilate, wanting to release Jesus, addressed them again,

20 Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them.

20 Pilate, wanting to release Jesus, addressed them again,

20 But Pilate wanted to let Jesus go, so he appealed to them again,

20 Once more Pilate called to them, wishing to release Jesus;

21 but they kept on calling out, saying, "Crucify, crucify Him!"

21 But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.

21 but they kept shouting, "Crucify! Crucify Him!"

21 but they continued to shout, "Crucify him! Crucify him!"

21 But they kept shouting out, Crucify, crucify Him!

22 And he said to them the third time, "Why, what evil has this man done? I have found in Him no guilt demanding death; therefore I will punish Him and release Him."

22 And 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.

22 A third time he said to them, "Why? What has this man done wrong? I have found in Him no grounds for the death penalty. Therefore I will have Him whipped and [then] release Him."

22 Then he spoke to them a third time: "What has he done wrong? I have found nothing in him worthy of death. So I will punish him and let him go."

22 A third time he said to them, Why? What wrong has He done? I have found [no offense or crime or guilt] in Him nothing deserving of death; I will therefore chastise Him [ in order to teach Him better] and release Him.

23 But they were insistent, with loud voices asking that He be crucified. And their voices began to prevail.

23 And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.

23 But they kept up the pressure, demanding with loud voices that He be crucified. And their voices won out.

23 But they kept pressing him with loud shouts, demanding that Jesus be crucified, and their shouts began to prevail.

23 But they were insistent and urgent, demanding with loud cries that He should be crucified. And their voices prevailed (accomplished their purpose).

24 And Pilate pronounced sentence that their demand be granted.

24 And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required.

24 So Pilate decided to grant their demand

24 Then Pilate pronounced his sentence that their demand should be carried out.

24 And Pilate gave sentence, that what they asked should be done.

25 And he released the man they were asking for who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, but he delivered Jesus to their will.

25 And 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.

25 and released the one they were asking for, who had been thrown into prison for rebellion and murder. But he handed Jesus over to their will.

25 So he released the man who had been put in prison for revolt and murder the man whose release they continued to demand but he let them have their way with Jesus.

25 So he released the man who had been thrown into prison for riot and murder, for whom they continued to ask, but Jesus he delivered up to be done with as they willed.
