1Andstraightwayin the morning the chief priestsheld a consultationwith the eldersandscribesand the wholecouncil, and boundJesus, and carried him away , anddelivered him to Pilate.2AndPilateaskedhim,Artthou the King of the Jews?And he answeringsaid unto him,Thousayest it.3And the chief priestsaccusedhim of many things:butheanswerednothing.4AndPilateaskedhimagain,saying , Answerest thounothing ? behold how many things they witness against thee.5ButJesusyetanswerednothing;so that Pilatemarvelled .
6Nowat that feast he released unto themoneprisoner,whomsoever they desired .
7And there was one namedBarabbas, which lay boundwith them that had made insurrection with him,who had committedmurderin the insurrection.8And the multitude crying aloudbegan to desire him to do as he had everdone unto them.9ButPilateansweredthem,saying , Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?10For he knewthat the chief priests had deliveredhimforenvy.11But the chief priestsmoved the people,that he should ratherreleaseBarabbas unto them.12AndPilateanswered and saidagain unto them,What will yethen that I shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews?13And they cried outagain,Crucifyhim.14ThenPilatesaid unto them,Why,whatevil hath he done ? And they cried out the more exceedingly,Crucifyhim.15And so Pilate,willing to content the people,releasedBarabbas unto them,anddeliveredJesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified .
16And the soldiersledhimawayinto the hall,calledPraetorium;aand they call together the wholeband.17And they clothedhim with purple,andplatted a crown of thorns, and put it abouthis head,
18Andbegan to salutehim,Hail , King of the Jews!19And they smotehim on the head with a reed,and did spit upon him,andbowing their kneesworshippedhim.20Andwhen they had mockedhim, they took off the purple from him,andput his ownclothesonhim,andledhimouttocrucifyhim.21And they compeloneSimon a Cyrenian, who passed by , coming out of the country, the father of AlexanderandRufus,tobearhiscross.22And they bringhimunto the placeGolgotha,whichis , being interpreted , The place of a skull.23And they gavehim to drinkwine mingled with myrrh : but he received it not.24And when they had crucifiedhim, they partedhisgarments,castinglotsuponthem,what every man should take .

32LetChrist the King of Israeldescendnowfrom the cross,that we may seeandbelieve . And they that were crucified with himreviledhim.33Andwhen the sixthhour was come , there wasdarknessover the wholelanduntil the ninthhour.34And at the ninthhourJesuscried with a loudvoice,saying , Eloi,Eloi,lamasabachthani?whichis , being interpreted , MyGod,myGod,whyhast thou forsakenme?35And some of them that stood by , when they heard it, said , Behold , he callethElias.36Andoneranandfilled a spungefull of vinegar,and put it on a reed, and gavehim to drink , saying , Let alone ; let us seewhetherElias will come to takehimdown .
