The governor's soldiers took Jesus into the governor's house, and they gathered the whole companya of soldiers around him.
They stripped him and put a red military coat on him.
They twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They put a stick in his right hand. Then they bowed down in front of him and mocked him, saying, "Hey! King of the Jews!"
After they spit on him, they took the stick and struck his head again and again.
When they finished mocking him, they stripped him of the military coat and put his own clothes back on him. They led him away to crucify him.
