And they stripped him and put a scarlet robe upon him,
and plaiting a crown of thorns they put it on his head, and put a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him they mocked him, saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!"
And they spat upon him, and took the reed and struck him on the head.
And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the robe, and put his own clothes on him, and led him away to crucify him.
As they went out, they came upon a man of Cyre'ne, Simon by name; this man they compelled to carry his cross.
And when they came to a place called Gol'gotha (which means the place of a skull),
they offered him wine to drink, mingled with gall; but when he tasted it, he would not drink it.
And when they had crucified him, they divided his garments among them by casting lots;
then they sat down and kept watch over him there.
And over his head they put the charge against him, which read, "This is Jesus the King of the Jews."
Then two robbers were crucified with him, one on the right and one on the left.
