Therefore Pilate took then Jesus, and scourged him. [Therefore then Pilate took Jesus, and scourged.]
And knights wreathed a crown of thorns, and set [put] on his head, and did about him a cloak of purple [a cloth of purple], and came to him,
and said, Hail, king of Jews. And they gave to him buffets.
Again Pilate went out, and said to them, Lo! I bring him out to you [Lo! I lead him to you withoutforth], that ye know, that I find no cause in him.
And so Jesus went out, bearing a crown of thorns, and a cloak of purple [and a cloth of purple]. And he saith to them, Lo! the man.
But when the bishops and ministers had seen him, they cried, and said [saying], Crucify, crucify him. Pilate saith to them, Take ye him, and crucify ye [him], for I find no cause in him.
The Jews answered to him, We have a law, and by the law he oweth to die, for he made him(self) God's Son [for he made him God's Son].
Therefore when Pilate had heard this word, he dreaded the more [he dreaded more].
And he went into the moot hall again, and said to Jesus, Of whence art thou? But Jesus gave none answer to him [Forsooth Jesus gave not answer to him].
Pilate saith to him, Speakest thou not to me? Knowest thou not, that I have power to crucify thee, and I have power to deliver thee?
Jesus answered, Thou shouldest not have any power against me, but it were given to thee from above; therefore he that betook me to thee, hath the more sin.
From that time Pilate sought to deliver him; but the Jews cried, and said, If thou deliverest this man, thou art not the emperor's friend; for each man that maketh himself king, gainsaith the emperor. [+Thereof, or from thence, Pilate sought to deliver him; forsooth the Jews cried, saying, If thou leavest this man, thou art not the friend of Caesar; for each man that maketh himself king, against-saith Caesar.]
And Pilate [Therefore Pilate], when he had heard these words, led Jesus forth, and sat for doomsman in a place, that is said Lycostratos, but in Hebrew Golgotha (but in Hebrew, Gabbatha).
And it was pask eve [Forsooth it was the making ready, or even, of pask], as it were the sixth hour. And he saith to the Jews, Lo! your king.
But they cried, and said, Take away, take away; crucify him [Forsooth they cried, saying, Do away, do away; crucify him]. Pilate saith to them, Shall I crucify your king? The bishops answered, We have no king but the emperor [We have no king no but Caesar].
And then Pilate betook him to them [Therefore then Pilate betook him to them], that he should be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him out.
And he bare to himself a cross, and went out into that place, that is said Calvary, in Hebrew Golgotha; [And he bearing to himself a cross went out into the place, that is said of Calvary, in Hebrew Golgatha;]
where they crucified him, and others twain with him [and others two with him], one on this side and one on that side, and Jesus in the middle.
And Pilate wrote a title, and set on the cross [and put on the cross]; and it was written, Jesus of Nazareth, king of Jews.
Therefore many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified, was nigh the city, and it was written in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin.
Therefore the bishops of the Jews said to Pilate, Do not thou write king of Jews, but that he said, I am king of Jews.
Pilate answered, That that I have written, I have written.
Therefore the knights when they had crucified him, took his clothes, and made four parts, to each knight a part, and a coat. And the coat was without seam, and woven all about [Forsooth the coat was without seam, and above woven by all].
Therefore they said together, Cut we not it, but cast we lot [but lay we lots], whose it is; that the scripture be fulfilled, saying, They parted my clothes to them, and on my cloak they cast lot [and into my cloth thy sent lots]. And the knights did these things.
But beside the cross of Jesus stood his mother, and the sister of his mother, Mary Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.
Therefore when Jesus had seen his mother, and the disciple standing, whom he loved, he saith to his mother, Woman, lo! thy son.
Afterward he saith to the disciple, Lo! thy mother. And from that hour the disciple took her into his mother [And from that hour the disciple took her into his things].
