View In My Bible
22 Pilate said to them, "Then what shall I do with Jesus 1who is called Christ?" They all said, "aCrucify Him!" 23 And he said, "Why, what evil has He done?" But they kept shouting all the more, saying, "bCrucify Him!" 24 When Pilate saw that he was accomplishing nothing, but rather that 2a riot was starting, he took water and 3washed his hands in front of the crowd, saying, "I am innocent of 4this Man's blood; 5see to that yourselves." 25 And all the people said, "6His blood shall be on us and on our children!" 26 Then he released Barabbas cfor them; but after having Jesus 7scourged, he handed Him over to be crucified.
