New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then the whole multitude of them arose and 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 found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to pay taxes 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 Then Pilate asked Him, saying, "Are You the King of the Jews?" 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 So Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowd, "I find no fault 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 were the more fierce, saying, "He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee to 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 of Galilee, he asked if the Man were a Galilean. 6 On hearing this, Pilate asked if the man was a Galilean.
7 And as soon as he knew that He belonged to Herod's jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who was also 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 when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceedingly glad; for he had desired for a long time to see Him, because he had heard many things about Him, and he hoped to see some miracle 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 Then he questioned Him with 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 scribes stood and vehemently accused Him. 10 The chief priests and the teachers of the law were standing there, vehemently accusing him.
11 Then Herod, with his men of war, treated Him with contempt and mocked Him, arrayed 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 That very day Pilate and Herod became friends with each other, for previously they had been at enmity with each other. 12 That day Herod and Pilate became friends--before this they had been enemies.
13 Then Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests, the rulers, and the people, 13 Pilate called together the chief priests, the rulers and the people,
14 said to them, "You have brought this Man to me, as one who misleads the people. And indeed, having examined Him in your presence, I have found no fault in this Man concerning those things of which you 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 no, neither did Herod, for I sent you back to him; and indeed nothing deserving of 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 I will therefore chastise Him and release Him" 16 Therefore, I will punish him and then release him. "
17 (for it was necessary for him to release one to them at the feast). 17 With one voice they cried out, "Away with this man! Release Barabbas to us!"
18 And they all cried out at once, saying, "Away with this Man, and release to us Barabbas"-- 18 (Barabbas had been thrown into prison for an insurrection in the city, and for murder.
19 who had been thrown into prison for a certain rebellion made in the city, and for murder 19 Wanting to release Jesus, Pilate appealed to them again.
20 Pilate, therefore, wishing to release Jesus, again called out to them. 20 But they kept shouting, "Crucify him! Crucify him!
21 But they shouted, saying, "Crucify Him, 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 Then he said to them the third time, "Why, what evil has He done? I have found no reason for death in Him. I will therefore chastise Him and let Him go." 22 But with loud shouts they insistently demanded that he be crucified, and their shouts prevailed.
23 But they were insistent, demanding with loud voices that He be crucified. And the voices of these men and of the chief priests prevailed. 23 So Pilate decided to grant their demand.
24 So Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they requested. 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 to them the one they requested, who for rebellion and murder had been thrown into prison; 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 Now as they led Him away, they laid hold of a certain man, Simon a Cyrenian, who was coming from the country, and on him they laid the cross that he might bear it after 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 followed Him, and women who also mourned and lamented 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, do not weep 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 indeed the days are coming in which they will say, 'Blessed are the barren, wombs that never bore, and breasts which 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 in the green wood, what will be done in the dry?" 31 Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed.
32 There were also two others, criminals, 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 had come to the place called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one on the right hand 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 Then Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do." And they divided His garments and 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 looking on. But even the rulers with them sneered, saying, "He saved others; let Him save Himself if He is the Christ, the chosen of God." 35 The soldiers also came up and mocked him. They offered him wine vinegar
36 The soldiers also mocked Him, coming and 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 And an inscription also was written over Him in letters of Greek, Latin, and Hebrew: 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 Then one of the criminals who were hanged blasphemed Him, saying, "If You are 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, answering, rebuked him, saying, "Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same 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 justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong." 41 Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom. "
42 Then he said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom." 42 Jesus answered him, "I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise."
43 And Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you, today you will 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 Now it was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 44 for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.
45 Then the sun was darkened, 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 when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He 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 So when the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God, saying, "Certainly this was a righteous Man!" 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 the whole crowd who came together to that sight, seeing what had been done, beat their breasts and returned. 48 But all those who knew him, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things.
49 But all His acquaintances, and the women who followed Him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things. 49 Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man,
50 Now behold, there was a man named Joseph, a council member, a good and just 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 decision and deed. He was from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, who himself was also 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 Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a tomb that was hewn out of the rock, where no one had ever lain before. 53 It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin.
54 That day was the Preparation, and the Sabbath drew near. 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 the women who had come with Him from Galilee followed after, and they observed 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 fragrant oils. And they rested on the Sabbath according to the commandment. 56
