1 Then the whole body of them got up and brought Him before Pilate. 1 Then the whole assembly rose and led him off to Pilate.
2 And they began to accuse Him, saying, "We found this man misleading our nation and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, and 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 So Pilate asked Him, saying, "Are You the King of the Jews?" And He answered him and said, "It is as you say." 3 So Pilate asked Jesus, "Are you the king of the Jews?" "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied.
4 Then 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 kept on insisting, saying, "He stirs up the people, teaching all over Judea, starting from Galilee even as far as this place." 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 When Pilate heard it, he asked whether the man was a Galilean. 6 On hearing this, Pilate asked if the man was a Galilean.
7 And when he learned that He belonged to Herod's jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who himself also was in Jerusalem at that time. 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 Now Herod was very glad when he saw Jesus; for he had wanted to see Him for a long time, because he had been hearing about Him and was hoping to see some sign performed 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 at some length ; 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 were standing there, accusing Him vehemently. 10 The chief priests and the teachers of the law were standing there, vehemently accusing him.
11 And Herod with his soldiers, after treating Him with contempt and mocking Him, dressed Him in a gorgeous robe and 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 Now Herod and Pilate became friends with one another that very day; for before they had been enemies with each other. 12 That day Herod and Pilate became friends--before this they had been enemies.
13 Pilate summoned the chief priests and the rulers and the people, 13 Pilate called together the chief priests, the rulers and the people,
14 and said to them, "You brought this man to me as one who incites the people to rebellion, and behold, having examined Him before you, I have found no guilt in this man regarding the charges which you make against 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 "No, nor has Herod, for he sent Him back to us; and behold, nothing deserving death has been 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 "Therefore I will punish Him and release Him." 16 Therefore, I will punish him and then release him. "
17 [Now he was obliged to release to them at the feast one prisoner.] 17 With one voice they cried out, "Away with this man! Release Barabbas to us!"
18 But they cried out all together, saying, "Away with this man, and release for us Barabbas!" 18 (Barabbas had been thrown into prison for an insurrection in the city, and for murder.
19 (He was one who had been thrown into prison for an insurrection made in the city, and for murder. 19 Wanting to release Jesus, Pilate appealed to them again.
20 Pilate, wanting to release Jesus, addressed them again, 20 But they kept shouting, "Crucify him! Crucify him!
21 but they kept on calling out, 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 to them the third time, "Why, what evil has this man done? I have found in Him no guilt demanding death; therefore I will punish Him and release Him." 22 But with loud shouts they insistently demanded that he be crucified, and their shouts prevailed.
23 But they were insistent, with loud voices asking that He be crucified. And their voices began to prevail. 23 So Pilate decided to grant their demand.
24 And Pilate pronounced sentence that their demand be granted. 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 the man they were asking for who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, but he delivered Jesus 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 When they led Him away, they seized a man, Simon of Cyrene, coming in from the country, and placed on him the cross to carry behind Jesus. 26 A large number of people followed him, including women who mourned and wailed for him.
27 And following Him was a large crowd of the people, and of women who were mourning and lamenting Him. 27 Jesus turned and said to them, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children.
28 But Jesus turning to them said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, stop weeping for Me, but weep for yourselves and for 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, the days are coming when they will say, 'Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed.' 29 Then " 'they will say to the mountains, "Fall on us!" and to the hills, "Cover us!" '
30 "Then they will begin TO SAY TO THE MOUNTAINS, 'FALL ON 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 they do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?" 31 Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed.
32 Two others also, who were criminals, were being led away to be put to death with Him. 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 When they came to the place called The Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and 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 But Jesus was saying, "Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing." And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves. 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 by, looking on. And even the rulers were sneering at Him, saying, "He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is the Christ of God, His Chosen One." 35 The soldiers also came up and mocked him. They offered him wine vinegar
36 The soldiers also mocked Him, coming up to Him, offering Him sour wine 36 and said, "If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself."
37 and saying, "If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself!" 37 There was a written notice above him, which read: this is the king of the jews.
38 Now there was also an inscription above Him, "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 One of the criminals who were hanged there was hurling abuse at Him, saying, "Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself 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 answered, and rebuking him said, "Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? 40 We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong."
41 "And we indeed are suffering justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds ; but this man has done nothing wrong." 41 Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom. "
42 And he was saying, "Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!" 42 Jesus answered him, "I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise."
43 And He said to him, "Truly I say to you, today you shall 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 It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness fell 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 because the sun was obscured; and the veil of the temple was torn in two. 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, crying out with a loud voice, said, "Father, INTO YOUR HANDS I COMMIT MY SPIRIT." Having said this, He breathed His last. 46 The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God and said, "Surely this was a righteous man."
47 Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he began praising God, saying, "Certainly this man was innocent." 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 came together for this spectacle, when they observed what had happened, began to return, 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 His acquaintances and the women who accompanied Him from Galilee were standing at a distance, seeing these things. 49 Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man,
50 And a man named Joseph, who was a member of the Council, a good and righteous man 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 (he had not consented to their plan and action ), a man from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, who was waiting for the kingdom of God; 51 Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus' body.
52 this man went to Pilate and asked for 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 he took it down and wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid Him in a tomb cut into the rock, where no one had ever lain. 53 It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin.
54 It was the preparation day, and the Sabbath was about to begin. 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 Now the women who had come with Him out of Galilee followed, and saw the tomb and how His body was laid. 55 Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes. But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment.
56 Then they returned and prepared spices and perfumes. And on the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment. 56
