1 And immediately in the morning, the chief priests taking counsel with the elders, and scribes, and all the Sanhedrim, bound Jesus, and brought and delivered him to Pilate.
2 And Pilate asked him, Are you the king of the Jews? And Jesus answered and said to him, As you say.
3 And the chief priests accused him of many things. 4 And Pilate again asked him saying, Do you answer nothing? see how many things they charge against you. 5 And Jesus answered him not any more; so that Pilate wondered.
6 And at the feast he released to them a prisoner, whomsoever they chose. 7 And there was a man called Barabbas, bound with the insurgents, who had committed murder in a sedition. 8 And the multitude went up and requested as he had always done to them. 9 And Pilate answered them, saying, Do you wish me to release to you the king of the Jews? 10 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him up from envy. 11 But the chief priests moved the people that he should rather release Barabbas to them.
12 And Pilate again answered and said to them, What, then, do you wish me to do to him whom you call the king of the Jews?
13 And they cried again, Crucify him!
14 And Pilate said to them, [Why]? for what evil has he done? But they cried more violently, Crucify him!
15 And Pilate wishing to satisfy the multitude released to them Barabbas; and having scourged Jesus delivered him up to be crucified.
16 AND the soldiers led him away into the court which is the Praetorium, and called together all the cohort. 17 And they put on him a purple garment, and plaiting a thorny crown put it on him. 18 And they saluted him, Hail, king of the Jews! 19 And they struck his head with a reed, and beat him, and kneeling down worshipped him. 20 And when they had mocked him they took off the purple garment, and put on him his own clothes, and they led him away to crucify him,
21 and compelled one Simon, a Cyrenian, who was passing along, coming from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross. 22 And they brought him to Golgotha, which is interpreted A place of a cranium, 23 and gave him wine mingled with myrrh; but he did not take it. 24 And they crucified him, and divided his clothes, casting lots for them which should take any thing. 25 And it was the third hour when they crucified him, 26 and the inscription of his accusation was written, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
27 And they crucified with him two robbers, one on his right hand and the other on his left. 28 (Added verse not retained in Sawyer) 29 And those who passed by reviled him, wagging their heads, and saying, Aha, you that destroy the temple and build it in three days! 30 save yourself, and come down from the cross. 31 In like manner also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes, said one to another, He saved others; himself he cannot save; 32 let the Christ, the King of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And those crucified with him reproached him.
33 And when it was the sixth hour, there was darkness over all the earth till the ninth hour. 34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi! Eloi! lama sabachthani? which is interpreted, my God! my God! why hast thou forsaken me?
35 And some of those standing by, hearing him, said, See, he calls Elijah. 36 And one ran, and filled a sponge with vinegar, and putting it on a reed gave it to him to drink, saying, Let him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to take him down.
37 And Jesus crying with a loud voice, expired. 38 And the vail of the temple was rent in two, from top to bottom; 39 and the centurion who stood near, opposite to him, seeing that he so expired, said, Truly, this man was a Son of God.
40 And the women also saw from afar, among whom were Mary the Magdalene and Mary the mother of James the less, and of Joset, and Salome, 41 who also followed him when he was in Galilee, and waited on him, and many others who had come up with him to Jerusalem.
42 And when it was now evening, because it was the preparation, which is before the sabbath, 43 Joseph came, who was from Arimathea, an honorable counsellor, who also himself expected the kingdom of God, and went in boldly to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. 44 And Pilate wondered that he was already dead; and calling the centurion asked him if he had been dead for some time. 45 And knowing [his death,] from the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph. 46 And having bought linen, he took him down and wrapped him in the linen, and placed him in a tomb which was cut from a rock, and rolled a stone against the door of the tomb. 47 And Mary the Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joset saw where he was laid.
