American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 And straightway in the morning the chief priests with the elders and scribes, and the whole council, held a consultation, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him up to Pilate. 1 Very early in the morning, the chief priests, with the elders, the teachers of the law and the whole Sanhedrin, reached a decision. They bound Jesus, led him away and handed him over to Pilate.
2 And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering saith unto him, Thou sayest. 2 "Are you the king of the Jews?" asked Pilate. "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied.
3 And the chief priests accused him of many things. 3 The chief priests accused him of many things.
4 And Pilate again asked him, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they accuse thee of. 4 So again Pilate asked him, "Aren't you going to answer? See how many things they are accusing you of."
5 But Jesus no more answered anything; insomuch that Pilate marvelled. 5 But Jesus still made no reply, and Pilate was amazed.

8 And the multitude went up and began to ask him [to do] as he was wont to do unto them. 8 The crowd came up and asked Pilate to do for them what he usually did.
9 And Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews? 9 "Do you want me to release to you the king of the Jews?" asked Pilate,
10 For he perceived that for envy the chief priests had delivered him up. 10 knowing it was out of envy that the chief priests had handed Jesus over to him.
11 But the chief priests stirred up the multitude, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them. 11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have Pilate release Barabbas instead.
12 And Pilate again answered and said unto them, What then shall I do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews? 12 "What shall I do, then, with the one you call the king of the Jews?" Pilate asked them.
13 And they cried out again, Crucify him. 13 "Crucify him!" they shouted.
14 And Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out exceedingly, Crucify him. 14 "Why? What crime has he committed?" asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, "Crucify him!"
15 And Pilate, wishing to content the multitude, released unto them Barabbas, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified. 15 Wanting to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them. He had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.

30 save thyself, and come down from the cross. 30 In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law mocked him among themselves. "He saved others," they said, "but he can't save himself !
31 In like manner also the chief priests mocking [him] among themselves with the scribes said, He saved others; himself he cannot save. 31 Let this Christ, this King of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe." Those crucified with him also heaped insults on him.

36 And one ran, and filling a sponge full of vinegar, put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let be; let us see whether Elijah cometh to take him down. 36 With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last.

39 And when the centurion, who stood by over against him, saw that he so gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God. 39 Some women were watching from a distance. Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, and Salome.
40 And there were also women beholding from afar: among whom [were] both Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome; 40 In Galilee these women had followed him and cared for his needs. Many other women who had come up with him to Jerusalem were also there.

43 there came Joseph of Arimathaea, a councillor of honorable estate, who also himself was looking for the kingdom of God; and he boldly went in unto Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus. 43 Pilate was surprised to hear that he was already dead. Summoning the centurion, he asked him if Jesus had already died.
44 And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead. 44 When he learned from the centurion that it was so, he gave the body to Joseph.
45 And when he learned it of the centurion, he granted the corpse to Joseph. 45 So Joseph bought some linen cloth, took down the body, wrapped it in the linen, and placed it in a tomb cut out of rock. Then he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb.
