NKJV 1 When morning came, all the chief priests and elders of the people plotted 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. NKJV 2 And when they had bound Him, they led Him away and delivered Him to Pontius Pilate the governor. NIV 2 They bound him, led him away and handed him over to Pilate, the governor. NKJV 3 Then Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had been condemned, was remorseful 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. NKJV 4 saying, "I have sinned by betraying innocent blood." And they said, "What is that to us? You see 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." NKJV 5 Then he threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and departed, and went and hanged himself. NIV 5 So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself. NKJV 6 But the chief priests took the silver pieces and said, "It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, because they are 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." NKJV 7 And they consulted together 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. NKJV 8 Therefore that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day. NIV 8 That is why it has been called the Field of Blood to this day. NKJV 9 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, "And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the value of Him who was priced, whom they of the children of Israel priced, 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, NKJV 10 and gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord directed me." NIV 10 and they used them to buy the potter's field, as the Lord commanded me." NKJV 11 Now Jesus stood before the governor. And the governor asked Him, saying, "Are You the King of the Jews?" So Jesus said to him, "It is as you say." 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. NKJV 12 And while He was being 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. NKJV 13 Then Pilate said to Him, "Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?" NIV 13 Then Pilate asked him, "Don't you hear the testimony they are bringing against you?" NKJV 14 But He answered him not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly. NIV 14 But Jesus made no reply, not even to a single charge--to the great amazement of the governor. NKJV 15 Now at the feast the governor was accustomed to releasing to the multitude one prisoner whom they wished. NIV 15 Now it was the governor's custom at the Feast to release a prisoner chosen by the crowd. NKJV 16 And at that time they had a notorious prisoner called Barabbas. NIV 16 At that time they had a notorious prisoner, called Barabbas. NKJV 17 Therefore, when they had gathered together, Pilate said to them, "Whom do you want me to 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?" NKJV 18 For he knew that they had handed Him over because of envy. NIV 18 For he knew it was out of envy that they had handed Jesus over to him. NKJV 19 While he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying, "Have nothing to do with that just Man, for I have suffered many things today 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." NKJV 20 But the chief priests and 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. NKJV 21 The governor answered and said to them, "Which of the two do you want me to release to you?" They said, "Barabbas!" NIV 21 "Which of the two do you want me to release to you?" asked the governor. "Barabbas," they answered. NKJV 22 Pilate said to them, "What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?" They all said to him, "Let Him be crucified!" NIV 22 "What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called Christ?" Pilate asked. They all answered, "Crucify him!" NKJV 23 Then the governor said, "Why, what evil has He done?" But they cried out all the more, saying, "Let Him be crucified!" NIV 23 "Why? What crime has he committed?" asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, "Crucify him!" NKJV 24 When Pilate saw that he could not prevail at all, but rather that a tumult was rising, he took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, "I am innocent of the blood of this just Person. You see 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!" NKJV 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!" NKJV 26 Then he released Barabbas to them; and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified. NIV 26 Then he released Barabbas to them. But he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified. NKJV 27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole garrison around Him.
