And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high priest so?
He teareth me in his wrath, who hateth me: he gnasheth upon me with his teeth; mine enemy sharpeneth his eyes upon me.
And now am I their song, yea, I am their byword.
But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.
