View In My Bible
21 but they were calling out, saying, `Crucify, crucify him. 22 And he a third time said unto them, `Why, what evil did he? no cause of death did I find in him; having chastised him, then, I will release [him].' 23 And they were pressing with loud voices asking him to be crucified, and their voices, and those of the chief priests, were prevailing, 24 and Pilate gave judgment for their request being done, 25 and he released him who because of sedition and murder hath been cast into the prison, whom they were asking, and Jesus he gave up to their will. 26 And as they led him away, having taken hold on Simon, a certain Cyrenian, coming from the field, they put on him the cross, to bear [it] behind Jesus. 27 And there was following him a great multitude of the people, and of women, who also were beating themselves and lamenting him, 28 and Jesus having turned unto them, said, `Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but for yourselves weep ye, and for your children; 29 for, lo, days do come, in which they shall say, Happy the barren, and wombs that did not bare, and paps that did not give suck; 30 then they shall begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us, and to the hills, Cover us; -- 31 for, if in the green tree they do these things -- in the dry what may happen?'
