When the morning was come, all the princes of the priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death,
and when they had bound him, they led him away and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
Then Judas, who had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the princes of the priests and the elders,
saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? Thou shalt see to it.
And casting down the pieces of silver in the temple, he departed and went and hanged himself.
And the princes of the priests taking the silver pieces, said, It is not lawful to put them into the treasury because it is the price of blood.
And they took counsel and bought with them the potter’s field to bury strangers in.
