Matthew 27

DBY 1 And when it was morning all the chief priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Jesus so that they might 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. DBY 2 And having bound him they led him away, and delivered him up to Pontius Pilate, the governor. NIV 2 They bound him, led him away and handed him over to Pilate, the governor. DBY 3 Then Judas, who delivered him up, seeing that he had been condemned, filled with remorse, returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the 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. DBY 4 saying, I have sinned [in] having delivered up guiltless blood. But they said, What is that to us? see *thou* [to that]. NIV 4 "I have sinned," he said, "for I have betrayed innocent blood." "What is that to us?" they replied. "That's your responsibility." DBY 5 And having cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, he left the place, and went away and hanged himself. NIV 5 So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself. DBY 6 And the chief priests took the pieces of silver and said, It is not lawful to cast them into the Corban, 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." DBY 7 And having taken counsel, they bought with them the field of the potter for a burying-ground for strangers. NIV 7 So they decided to use the money to buy the potter's field as a burial place for foreigners. DBY 8 Wherefore that field has been called Blood-field unto this day. NIV 8 That is why it has been called the Field of Blood to this day. DBY 9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken through Jeremias the prophet, saying, And I took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was set a price on, whom [they who were] of the sons of Israel had set a price on, 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, DBY 10 and they gave them for the field of the potter, according as [the] Lord commanded me. NIV 10 and they used them to buy the potter's field, as the Lord commanded me." DBY 11 But Jesus stood before the governor. And the governor questioned him, saying, Art *thou* the King of the Jews? And Jesus said to 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. DBY 12 And when he was accused of the chief priests and the elders, he answered nothing. NIV 12 When he was accused by the chief priests and the elders, he gave no answer. DBY 13 Then says Pilate to 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?" DBY 14 And he answered him not so much as one word, so that the governor wondered exceedingly. NIV 14 But Jesus made no reply, not even to a single charge--to the great amazement of the governor. DBY 15 Now at [the] feast the governor was accustomed to release one prisoner to the crowd, whom they would. NIV 15 Now it was the governor's custom at the Feast to release a prisoner chosen by the crowd. DBY 16 And they had then a notable prisoner, named Barabbas. NIV 16 At that time they had a notorious prisoner, called Barabbas. DBY 17 They therefore being gathered together, Pilate said to them, Whom will ye that I release to 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?" DBY 18 For he knew that they had delivered him up through envy. NIV 18 For he knew it was out of envy that they had handed Jesus over to him. DBY 19 But, as he was sitting on the judgment-seat, his wife sent to him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that righteous [man]; for I have suffered to-day many things 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." DBY 20 But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowds that they should beg 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. DBY 21 And the governor answering said to 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. DBY 22 Pilate says to them, What then shall I do with 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!" DBY 23 And the governor said, What evil then has he done? But they cried more than ever, saying, Let him be crucified. NIV 23 "Why? What crime has he committed?" asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, "Crucify him!" DBY 24 And Pilate, seeing that it availed nothing, but that rather a tumult was arising, having taken water, washed his hands before the crowd, saying, I am guiltless of the blood of this righteous one: 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!" DBY 25 And all the people answering 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!" DBY 26 Then he released to them Barabbas; but Jesus, having scourged [him], he delivered up that he might be crucified. NIV 26 Then he released Barabbas to them. But he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified. DBY 27 Then the soldiers of the governor, having taken Jesus with [them] to the praetorium, gathered against 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. DBY 28 and having taken off his garment, put on him a scarlet cloak; NIV 28 They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, DBY 29 and having woven a crown out of thorns, they put it on his head, and a reed in his right hand; and, bowing the knee before him, they 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. DBY 30 And having spit upon him, they took the reed and beat [him] on his head. NIV 30 They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. DBY 31 And when they had mocked him, they took the cloak off him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him away to crucify. 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. DBY 32 And as they went forth 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. DBY 33 And having come to a place called Golgotha, which means Place of a skull, NIV 33 They came to a place called Golgotha (which means The Place of the Skull). DBY 34 they gave to him to drink vinegar mingled with gall; and having 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. DBY 35 And having crucified him, they parted his clothes amongst [themselves], casting lots. NIV 35 When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. DBY 36 And sitting down, they kept guard over him there. NIV 36 And sitting down, they kept watch over him there. DBY 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. DBY 38 Then are 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. DBY 39 But the passers-by reviled him, shaking their heads NIV 39 Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads DBY 40 and saying, Thou that destroyest the temple and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou art Son of God, descend 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!" DBY 41 [And] in like manner the chief priests also, mocking, 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. DBY 42 He saved others, himself he cannot save. He is King of Israel: let him descend now 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. DBY 43 He trusted upon God; let him save him now if he will [have] him. For he said, I am 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.' " DBY 44 And the robbers also who had been crucified with him cast the same reproaches on him. NIV 44 In the same way the robbers who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him. DBY 45 Now from [the] sixth hour there was darkness over the whole land until [the] ninth hour; NIV 45 From the sixth hour until the ninth hour darkness came over all the land. DBY 46 but about the ninth hour Jesus cried out 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?" DBY 47 And some of those who stood there, when they heard [it], said, This [man] calls for Elias. NIV 47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, "He's calling Elijah." DBY 48 And immediately one of them running and getting a sponge, having filled [it] with vinegar and fixed [it] on a reed, 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. DBY 49 But the rest said, Let be; let us see if Elias comes to save him.

DBY 64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be secured until the third day, lest his disciples should come and steal him away, and say to the people, He is risen from the dead; and the last error shall 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." DBY 65 And Pilate said to them, Ye have a watch: go, secure it as well as ye know how. NIV 65 "Take a guard," Pilate answered. "Go, make the tomb as secure as you know how." DBY 66 And they went and secured the sepulchre, having sealed the stone, with the watch [besides]. NIV 66 So they went and made the tomb secure by putting a seal on the stone and posting the guard.
