1: And straightway in the morning the chief priests with the elders and scribes, and the whole council, 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 saith unto him, Thou sayest. 3: And the chief priests accused him of many things. 4: And Pilate again asked him, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they accuse thee of. 5: But Jesus no more answered anything; insomuch that Pilate marvelled. 6: Now at the feast he used to release unto them one prisoner, whom they asked of him. 7: And there was one called Barabbas, [lying] bound with them that had made insurrection, men who in the insurrection had committed murder. 8: And the multitude went up and began to ask him [to do] as he was wont to do unto them. 9: And Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto 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 multitude, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them. 12: And Pilate again answered and said unto them, What then shall I do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews? 13: And they cried out again, Crucify him. 14: And Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out exceedingly, Crucify him. 15: And Pilate, wishing to content the multitude, released unto 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 Praetorium; 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 worshipped 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, to go [with them], that he might bear his cross. 22: And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull. 23: And they offered 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 superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS. 27: And with him they crucify two robbers; one on his right hand, and one on his left. 28: [And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was reckoned with transgressors.] 29: And they that passed 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: In like manner 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 may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reproached him. 33: And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. 34: And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? 35: And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elijah. 36: And one ran, and filling a sponge full of 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 gave up the ghost. 38: And the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom. 39: And when the centurion, who stood by over against him, saw that he so gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God. 40: And there were also women beholding from afar: among whom [were] both Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome; 41: who, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him; and many other women that came up with him unto Jerusalem. 42: And when even was now come, because it was the Preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath, 43: there came Joseph of Arimathaea, a councillor 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 marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while 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.
