|New Living Translation (NLT)
||New International Version (NIV)
2 The leading priests and teachers of religious law were actively plotting Jesus' murder. But they wanted to kill him without starting a riot, a possibility they greatly feared.
2 and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some way to get rid of Jesus, for they were afraid of the people.
