2And the soldiersplatted a crownofthorns, and put it onhishead,and they put onhim a purplerobe,3Andsaid , Hail , King of the Jews!and they smotehim with their hands.4Pilatethereforewentforthagain,andsaith unto them,Behold, I bringhimforth to you,that ye may knowthat I findnofaultinhim.5ThencameJesusforth,wearing the crown of thorns,and the purplerobe.And Pilate saith unto them,Behold the man!6When the chief prieststhereforeandofficerssawhim, they cried out , saying , Crucify him, crucify him. Pilatesaith unto them,Takeyehim,andcrucify him: forIfindnofaultinhim.7
The Jewsansweredhim,Wehave a law,andbyourlaw he ought to die , because he madehimself the Son of God.8WhenPilatethereforeheardthatsaying, he was the moreafraid ;

And fromthenceforthPilatesought to releasehim:but the Jews cried out , saying , If thou let this mango , thou artnotCaesar'sfriend:whosoevermakethhimself a king speaketh againstCaesar.13
