15 Now upon the solemn day the governor was accustomed to release to the people one prisoner, whom they would. 15 Now it was the governor's custom at the Feast to release a prisoner chosen by the crowd.
16 And he had then a notorious prisoner that was called Barabbas. 16 At that time they had a notorious prisoner, called Barabbas.
17 They therefore being gathered together, Pilate said: Whom will you that I release to You: Barabbas, or Jesus that is called Christ? 17 So when the crowd had gathered, Pilate asked them, "Which one do you want me to release to you: Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?"

24 And Pilate seeing that he prevailed nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, taking water washed his hands before the people, saying: I am innocent of the blood of this just man. Look you to it. 24 When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. "I am innocent of this man's blood," he said. "It is your responsibility!"
25 And the whole people answering, said: His blood be upon us and upon our children. 25 All the people answered, "Let his blood be on us and on our children!"
