Luke 23:21-31 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible
21 but they kept crying out, saying, "Crucify! Crucify him! 22 So he said to them a third [time], "Why? What wrong has this man done? I found no basis for an accusation {deserving death}a in him. Therefore I will punish him [and]b release [him]."c 23 But they were urgent, demanding with loud cries [that] he be crucified. And their cries prevailed. 24 And Pilate decided [that] their demand should be granted. 25 And he released the one who had been thrown into prison because of insurrection and murder, whom they were asking for, but Jesus he handed over to their will.

Jesus Is Crucified

26 And as they led him away, they seized Simon, a certain [man] of Cyrene, who was coming from the country, [and]d placed the cross on him, to carry [it]e behind Jesus. 27 And a great crowd of the people were following him, and of women who were mourning and lamenting him. 28 But turning to them, Jesus said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children! 29 For behold, days are coming in which they will say, 'Blessed [are] the barren, and the wombs that did not give birth, and [the] breasts that did not nurse!' 30 Then they will begin to say to the mountains, 'Fall on us!' and to the hills, 'Cover us!' 31 For if they do these [things] {when the wood is green},f what will happen {when it is dry}?"g
