The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 And the whole multitude of them, rising up, led him to Pilate. 1 Then the whole assembly rose and led him off to Pilate.
2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We have found this [man] perverting our nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ, a king. 2 And they began to accuse him, saying, "We have found this man subverting our nation. He opposes payment of taxes to Caesar and claims to be Christ, a king."
3 And Pilate demanded of him saying, Art *thou* the king of the Jews? And he answering him said, Thou sayest. 3 So Pilate asked Jesus, "Are you the king of the Jews?" "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied.
4 And Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds, I find no guilt in this man 4 Then Pilate announced to the chief priests and the crowd, "I find no basis for a charge against this man."#cr
5 But they insisted, saying, He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judaea, beginning from Galilee even on to here. 5 But they insisted, "He stirs up the people all over Judea by his teaching. He started in Galilee and has come all the way here."
6 But Pilate, having heard Galilee [named], demanded if the man were a Galilaean; 6 On hearing this, Pilate asked if the man was a Galilean.
7 and having learned that he was of Herod's jurisdiction, remitted him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem in those days. 7 When he learned that Jesus was under Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem at that time.
8 And when Herod saw Jesus he greatly rejoiced, for he had been a long while desirous of seeing him, because of hearing many things concerning him, and he hoped to see some sign done by him; 8 When Herod saw Jesus, he was greatly pleased, because for a long time he had been wanting to see him. From what he had heard about him, he hoped to see him perform some miracle.
9 and he questioned him in many words, but *he* answered him nothing. 9 He plied him with many questions, but Jesus gave him no answer.
10 And the chief priests and the scribes stood and accused him violently. 10 The chief priests and the teachers of the law were standing there, vehemently accusing him.
11 And Herod with his troops having set him at nought and mocked him, having put a splendid robe upon him, sent him back to Pilate. 11 Then Herod and his soldiers ridiculed and mocked him. Dressing him in an elegant robe, they sent him back to Pilate.
12 And Pilate and Herod became friends with one another the same day, for they had been at enmity before between themselves. 12 That day Herod and Pilate became friends--before this they had been enemies.
13 And Pilate, having called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, 13 Pilate called together the chief priests, the rulers and the people,
14 said to them, Ye have brought to me this man as turning away the people [to rebellion], and behold, I, having examined him before you, have found nothing criminal in this man as to the things of which ye accuse him 14 and said to them, "You brought me this man as one who was inciting the people to rebellion. I have examined him in your presence and have found no basis for your charges against him.
15 nor Herod either, for I remitted you to him, and behold, nothing worthy of death is done by him. 15 Neither has Herod, for he sent him back to us; as you can see, he has done nothing to deserve death.
16 Having chastised him therefore, I will release him. 16 Therefore, I will punish him and then release him. "
17 ( Now he was obliged to release one for them at the feast.) 17 With one voice they cried out, "Away with this man! Release Barabbas to us!"
18 But they cried out in a mass saying, Away with this [man] and release Barabbas to us; 18 (Barabbas had been thrown into prison for an insurrection in the city, and for murder.
19 who was one who, for a certain tumult which had taken place in the city, and [for] murder, had been cast into prison 19 Wanting to release Jesus, Pilate appealed to them again.
20 Pilate therefore, desirous to release Jesus, again addressed [them]. 20 But they kept shouting, "Crucify him! Crucify him!
21 But they cried out in reply saying, Crucify, crucify him 21 For the third time he spoke to them: "Why? What crime has this man committed? I have found in him no grounds for the death penalty. Therefore I will have him punished and then release him."
22 And he said the third time to them, What evil then has this [man] done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will chastise him therefore and release him. 22 But with loud shouts they insistently demanded that he be crucified, and their shouts prevailed.
23 But they were urgent with loud voices, begging that he might be crucified. And their voices [and those of the chief priests] prevailed. 23 So Pilate decided to grant their demand.
24 And Pilate adjudged that what they begged should take place. 24 He released the man who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, the one they asked for, and surrendered Jesus to their will.
25 And he released him who, for tumult and murder, had been cast into prison, whom they begged for, and Jesus he delivered up to their will. 25 As they led him away, they seized Simon from Cyrene, who was on his way in from the country, and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus.
26 And as they led him away, they laid hold on a certain Simon, a Cyrenian, coming from the field, and put the cross upon him to bear it behind Jesus. 26 A large number of people followed him, including women who mourned and wailed for him.
27 And a great multitude of the people, and of women who wailed and lamented him, followed him. 27 Jesus turned and said to them, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children.
28 And Jesus turning round to them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep over me, but weep over yourselves and over your children; 28 For the time will come when you will say, 'Blessed are the barren women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!'
29 for behold, days are coming in which they will say, Blessed [are] the barren, and wombs that have not borne, and breasts that have not given suck. 29 Then " 'they will say to the mountains, "Fall on us!" and to the hills, "Cover us!" '
30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall upon us; and to the hills, Cover us: 30 For if men do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?"
31 for if these things are done in the green tree, what shall take place in the dry? 31 Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed.
32 Now two others also, malefactors, were led with him to be put to death. 32 When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him, along with the criminals--one on his right, the other on his left.
33 And when they came to the place which is called Skull, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, the other on the left. 33 Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.
34 And Jesus said, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. And, parting out his garments, they cast lots. 34 The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him. They said, "He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Christ of God, the Chosen One."
35 And the people stood beholding, and the rulers also [with them] sneered, saying, He has saved others; let him save himself if this is the Christ, the chosen one of God. 35 The soldiers also came up and mocked him. They offered him wine vinegar
36 And the soldiers also made game of him, coming up offering him vinegar 36 and said, "If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself."
37 and saying, If *thou* be the king of the Jews, save thyself. 37 There was a written notice above him, which read: this is the king of the jews.
38 And there was also an inscription [written] over him in Greek, and Roman, and Hebrew letters: This is the King of the Jews 38 One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: "Aren't you the Christ? Save yourself and us!"
39 Now one of the malefactors who had been hanged spoke insultingly to him, saying, Art not thou the Christ? save thyself and us. 39 But the other criminal rebuked him. "Don't you fear God," he said, "since you are under the same sentence?
40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost *thou* too not fear God, thou that art under the same judgment? 40 We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong."
41 and *we* indeed justly, for we receive the just recompense of what we have done; but this [man] has done nothing amiss. 41 Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom. "
42 And he said to Jesus, Remember me, [Lord,] when thou comest in thy kingdom. 42 Jesus answered him, "I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise."
43 And Jesus said to him, Verily I say to thee, To-day shalt thou be with me in paradise. 43 It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour,
44 And it was about [the] sixth hour, and there came darkness over the whole land until [the] ninth hour. 44 for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.
45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple rent in the midst. 45 Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last.
46 And Jesus, having cried with a loud voice, said, Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit. And having said this, he expired. 46 The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God and said, "Surely this was a righteous man."
47 Now the centurion, seeing what took place, glorified God, saying, In very deed this man was just. 47 When all the people who had gathered to witness this sight saw what took place, they beat their breasts and went away.
48 And all the crowds who had come together to that sight, having seen the things that took place, returned, beating [their] breasts. 48 But all those who knew him, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things.
49 And all those who knew him stood afar off, the women also who had followed him from Galilee, beholding these things. 49 Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man,
50 And behold, a man named Joseph, who was a councillor, a good man and a just 50 who had not consented to their decision and action. He came from the Judean town of Arimathea and he was waiting for the kingdom of God.
51 (this [man] had not assented to their counsel and deed), of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews, who also waited, [himself also,] for the kingdom of God 51 Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus' body.
52 -- he having gone to Pilate begged the body of Jesus; 52 Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid.
53 and having taken it down, wrapped it in fine linen and placed him in a tomb hewn in the rock, where no one had ever been laid. 53 It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin.
54 And it was preparation day, and [the] sabbath twilight was coming on. 54 The women who had come with Jesus from Galilee followed Joseph and saw the tomb and how his body was laid in it.
55 And women, who had come along with him out of Galilee, having followed, saw the sepulchre and how his body was placed. 55 Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes. But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment.
56 And having returned they prepared aromatic spices and ointments, and remained quiet on the sabbath, according to the commandment. 56
