ASV 1 Now when morning was come, all the chief priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death: NIV 1 Early in the morning, all the chief priests and the elders of the people came to the decision to put Jesus to death. ASV 2 and they bound him, and led him away, and delivered him up to Pilate the governor. NIV 2 They bound him, led him away and handed him over to Pilate, the governor. ASV 3 Then Judas, who betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, NIV 3 When Judas, who had betrayed him, saw that Jesus was condemned, he was seized with remorse and returned the thirty silver coins to the chief priests and the elders. ASV 4 saying, I have sinned in that I betrayed innocent blood. But they said, What is that to us? see thou [to it]. NIV 4 "I have sinned," he said, "for I have betrayed innocent blood." "What is that to us?" they replied. "That's your responsibility." ASV 5 And he cast down the pieces of silver into the sanctuary, and departed; and he went away and hanged himself. NIV 5 So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself. ASV 6 And the chief priests took the pieces of silver, and said, It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, since it is the price of blood. NIV 6 The chief priests picked up the coins and said, "It is against the law to put this into the treasury, since it is blood money." ASV 7 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in. NIV 7 So they decided to use the money to buy the potter's field as a burial place for foreigners. ASV 8 Wherefore that field was called, the field of blood, unto this day. NIV 8 That is why it has been called the Field of Blood to this day. ASV 9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was priced, whom [certain] of the children of Israel did price; NIV 9 Then what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: "They took the thirty silver coins, the price set on him by the people of Israel, ASV 10 and they gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord appointed me. NIV 10 and they used them to buy the potter's field, as the Lord commanded me." ASV 11 Now Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest. NIV 11 Meanwhile Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?" "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied. ASV 12 And when he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing. NIV 12 When he was accused by the chief priests and the elders, he gave no answer. ASV 13 Then saith Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee? NIV 13 Then Pilate asked him, "Don't you hear the testimony they are bringing against you?" ASV 14 And he gave him no answer, not even to one word: insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly. NIV 14 But Jesus made no reply, not even to a single charge--to the great amazement of the governor. ASV 15 Now at the feast the governor was wont to release unto the multitude one prisoner, whom they would. NIV 15 Now it was the governor's custom at the Feast to release a prisoner chosen by the crowd. ASV 16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas. NIV 16 At that time they had a notorious prisoner, called Barabbas. ASV 17 When therefore they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ? NIV 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?" ASV 18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him up. NIV 18 For he knew it was out of envy that they had handed Jesus over to him. ASV 19 And while he was sitting on the judgment-seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that righteous man; for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him. NIV 19 While Pilate was sitting on the judge's seat, his wife sent him this message: "Don't have anything to do with that innocent man, for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him." ASV 20 Now the chief priests and the elders persuaded the multitudes that they should ask for Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. NIV 20 But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowd to ask for Barabbas and to have Jesus executed. ASV 21 But the governor answered and said unto them, Which of the two will ye that I release unto you? And they said, Barabbas. NIV 21 "Which of the two do you want me to release to you?" asked the governor. "Barabbas," they answered. ASV 22 Pilate saith unto them, What then shall I do unto Jesus who is called Christ? They all say, Let him be crucified. NIV 22 "What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called Christ?" Pilate asked. They all answered, "Crucify him!" ASV 23 And he said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out exceedingly, saying, Let him be crucified. NIV 23 "Why? What crime has he committed?" asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, "Crucify him!" ASV 24 So when Pilate saw that he prevailed nothing, but rather that a tumult was arising, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this righteous man; see ye [to it]. NIV 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!" ASV 25 And all the people answered and said, His blood [be] on us, and on our children. NIV 25 All the people answered, "Let his blood be on us and on our children!" ASV 26 Then released he unto them Barabbas; but Jesus he scourged and delivered to be crucified. NIV 26 Then he released Barabbas to them. But he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified. ASV 27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the Praetorium, and gathered unto him the whole band. NIV 27 Then the governor's soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. ASV 28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe. NIV 28 They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, ASV 29 And they platted a crown of thorns and put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand; and they kneeled down before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! NIV 29 and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand and knelt in front of him and mocked him. "Hail, king of the Jews!" they said. ASV 30 And they spat upon him, and took the reed and smote him on the head. NIV 30 They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. ASV 31 And when they had mocked him, they took off from him the robe, and put on him his garments, and led him away to crucify him. NIV 31 After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him. ASV 32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to go [with them], that he might bear his cross. NIV 32 As they were going out, they met a man from Cyrene, named Simon, and they forced him to carry the cross. ASV 33 And they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, The place of a skull, NIV 33 They came to a place called Golgotha (which means The Place of the Skull). ASV 34 they gave him wine to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted it, he would not drink. NIV 34 There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall; but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. ASV 35 And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments among them, casting lots; NIV 35 When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. ASV 36 and they sat and watched him there. NIV 36 And sitting down, they kept watch over him there. ASV 37 And they set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS. NIV 37 Above his head they placed the written charge against him: THIS IS JESUS, THE KING OF THE JEWS. ASV 38 Then are there crucified with him two robbers, one on the right hand and one on the left. NIV 38 Two robbers were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. ASV 39 And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, NIV 39 Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads ASV 40 and saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself: if thou art the Son of God, come down from the cross. NIV 40 and saying, "You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself ! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!" ASV 41 In like manner also the chief priests mocking [him], with the scribes and elders, said, NIV 41 In the same way the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders mocked him. ASV 42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. He is the King of Israel; let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe on him. NIV 42 "He saved others," they said, "but he can't save himself ! He's the King of Israel! Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. ASV 43 He trusteth on God; let him deliver him now, if he desireth him: for he said, I am the Son of God. NIV 43 He trusts in God. Let God rescue him now if he wants him, for he said, 'I am the Son of God.' " ASV 44 And the robbers also that were crucified with him cast upon him the same reproach. NIV 44 In the same way the robbers who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him. ASV 45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour.

ASV 46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? NIV 46 About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ""Eloi, Eloi," "lama" "sabachthani?""--which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" ASV 47 And some of them stood there, when they heard it, said, This man calleth Elijah. NIV 47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, "He's calling Elijah." ASV 48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. NIV 48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink. ASV 49 And the rest said, Let be; let us see whether Elijah cometh to save him. NIV 49 The rest said, "Now leave him alone. Let's see if Elijah comes to save him." ASV 50 And Jesus cried again with a loud voice, and yielded up his spirit. NIV 50 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. ASV 51 And behold, the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake; and the rocks were rent; NIV 51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. ASV 52 and the tombs were opened; and many bodies of the saints that had fallen asleep were raised; NIV 52 The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. ASV 53 and coming forth out of the tombs after his resurrection they entered into the holy city and appeared unto many.

NIV 54 When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, "Surely he was the Son of God!" ASV 55 And many women were there beholding from afar, who had followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him: NIV 55 Many women were there, watching from a distance. They had followed Jesus from Galilee to care for his needs. ASV 56 among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.

ASV 57 And when even was come, there came a rich man from Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple: NIV 57 As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. ASV 58 this man went to Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded it to be given up. NIV 58 Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus' body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. ASV 59 And Joseph took the body, and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, NIV 59 Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, ASV 60 and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the tomb, and departed.

ASV 62 Now on the morrow, which is [the day] after the Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees were gathered together unto Pilate, NIV 62 The next day, the one after Preparation Day, the chief priests and the Pharisees went to Pilate. ASV 63 saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said while he was yet alive, After three days I rise again. NIV 63 "Sir," they said, "we remember that while he was still alive that deceiver said, 'After three days I will rise again.' ASV 64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest haply his disciples come and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: and the last error will be worse than the first. NIV 64 So give the order for the tomb to be made secure until the third day. Otherwise, his disciples may come and steal the body and tell the people that he has been raised from the dead. This last deception will be worse than the first." ASV 65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a guard: go, make it [as] sure as ye can. NIV 65 "Take a guard," Pilate answered. "Go, make the tomb as secure as you know how." ASV 66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, the guard being with them. NIV 66 So they went and made the tomb secure by putting a seal on the stone and posting the guard.
