Matthew 11:7; Matthew 12:20; Matthew 27:29-30; Matthew 27:48
And as they departed , Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see ? A reed shaken with the wind?
A bruised reed shall he not break , and smoking flax shall he not quench , till he send forth judgment unto victory.
And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying , Hail , King of the Jews!
And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.
And straightway one of them ran , and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink .
