Matthew 27

NRS 1 When morning came, all the chief priests and the elders of the people conferred together against Jesus in order to bring about his death. CEB 1 Early in the morning all the chief priests and the elders of the people reached the decision to have Jesus put to death. NRS 2 They bound him, led him away, and handed him over to Pilate the governor. CEB 2 They bound him, led him away, and turned him over to Pilate the governor. NRS 3 When Judas, his betrayer, saw that Jesus was condemned, he repented and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders. CEB 3 When Judas, who betrayed Jesus, saw that Jesus was condemned to die, he felt deep regret. He returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, and NRS 4 He said, "I have sinned by betraying innocent blood." But they said, "What is that to us? See to it yourself." CEB 4 said, "I did wrong because I betrayed an innocent man." But they said, "What is that to us? That's your problem." NRS 5 Throwing down the pieces of silver in the temple, he departed; and he went and hanged himself. CEB 5 Judas threw the silver pieces into the temple and left. Then he went and hanged himself. NRS 6 But the chief priests, taking the pieces of silver, said, "It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, since they are blood money." CEB 6 The chief priests picked up the silver pieces and said, "According to the Law it's not right to put this money in the treasury. Since it was used to pay for someone's life, it's unclean." NRS 7 After conferring together, they used them to buy the potter's field as a place to bury foreigners. CEB 7 So they decided to use it to buy the potter's field where strangers could be buried. NRS 8 For this reason that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day. CEB 8 That's why that field is called "Field of Blood" to this very day. NRS 9 Then was fulfilled what had been spoken through the prophet Jeremiah, "And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of the one on whom a price had been set, on whom some of the people of Israel had set a price, CEB 9 This fulfilled the words of Jeremiah the prophet: And I took the thirty pieces of silver, the price for the one whose price had been set by some of the Israelites, NRS 10 and they gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord commanded me." CEB 10 and I gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord commanded me. NRS 11 Now Jesus stood before the governor; and the governor asked him, "Are you the King of the Jews?" Jesus said, "You say so." CEB 11 Jesus was brought before the governor. The governor said, "Are you the king of the Jews?" Jesus replied, "That's what you say." NRS 12 But when he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he did not answer. CEB 12 But he didn't answer when the chief priests and elders accused him. NRS 13 Then Pilate said to him, "Do you not hear how many accusations they make against you?" CEB 13 Then Pilate said, "Don't you hear the testimony they bring against you?" NRS 14 But he gave him no answer, not even to a single charge, so that the governor was greatly amazed. CEB 14 But he didn't answer, not even a single word. So the governor was greatly amazed. NRS 15 Now at the festival the governor was accustomed to release a prisoner for the crowd, anyone whom they wanted. CEB 15 It was customary during the festival for the governor to release to the crowd one prisoner, whomever they might choose. NRS 16 At that time they had a notorious prisoner, called Jesus Barabbas. CEB 16 At that time there was a well-known prisoner named Jesus Barabbas. NRS 17 So after they had gathered, Pilate said to them, "Whom do you want me to release for you, Jesus Barabbas or Jesus who is called the Messiah?" CEB 17 When the crowd had come together, Pilate asked them, "Whom would you like me to release to you, Jesus Barabbas or Jesus who is called Christ?" NRS 18 For he realized that it was out of jealousy that they had handed him over. CEB 18 He knew that the leaders of the people had handed him over because of jealousy. NRS 19 While he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent word to him, "Have nothing to do with that innocent man, for today I have suffered a great deal because of a dream about him." CEB 19 While he was serving as judge, his wife sent this message to him, "Leave that righteous man alone. I've suffered much today in a dream because of him." NRS 20 Now the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowds to ask for Barabbas and to have Jesus killed. CEB 20 But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowds to ask for Barabbas and kill Jesus. NRS 21 The governor again said to them, "Which of the two do you want me to release for you?" And they said, "Barabbas." CEB 21 The governor said, "Which of the two do you want me to release to you?" "Barabbas," they replied. NRS 22 Pilate said to them, "Then what should I do with Jesus who is called the Messiah?" All of them said, "Let him be crucified!" CEB 22 Pilate said, "Then what should I do with Jesus who is called Christ?" They all said, "Crucify him!" NRS 23 Then he asked, "Why, what evil has he done?" But they shouted all the more, "Let him be crucified!" CEB 23 But he said, "Why? What wrong has he done?" They shouted even louder, "Crucify him!" NRS 24 So when Pilate saw that he could do nothing, but rather that a riot was beginning, he took some water and washed his hands before the crowd, saying, "I am innocent of this man's blood; see to it yourselves." CEB 24 Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere and that a riot was starting. So he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. "I'm innocent of this man's blood," he said. "It's your problem." NRS 25 Then the people as a whole answered, "His blood be on us and on our children!" CEB 25 All the people replied, "Let his blood be on us and on our children." NRS 26 So he released Barabbas for them; and after flogging Jesus, he handed him over to be crucified. CEB 26 Then he released Barabbas to them. He had Jesus whipped, then handed him over to be crucified. NRS 27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the governor's headquarters, and they gathered the whole cohort around him. CEB 27 The governor's soldiers took Jesus into the governor's house, and they gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. NRS 28 They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, CEB 28 They stripped him and put a red military coat on him. NRS 29 and after twisting some thorns into a crown, they put it on his head. They put a reed in his right hand and knelt before him and mocked him, saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!" CEB 29 They twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They put a stick in his right hand. Then they bowed down in front of him and mocked him, saying, "Hey! King of the Jews!" NRS 30 They spat on him, and took the reed and struck him on the head. CEB 30 After they spit on him, they took the stick and struck his head again and again. NRS 31 After mocking him, they stripped him of the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him. CEB 31 When they finished mocking him, they stripped him of the military coat and put his own clothes back on him. They led him away to crucify him. NRS 32 As they went out, they came upon a man from Cyrene named Simon; they compelled this man to carry his cross. CEB 32 As they were going out, they found Simon, a man from Cyrene. They forced him to carry his cross. NRS 33 And when they came to a place called Golgotha (which means Place of a Skull), CEB 33 When they came to a place called Golgotha, which means Skull Place, NRS 34 they offered him wine to drink, mixed with gall; but when he tasted it, he would not drink it. CEB 34 they gave Jesus wine mixed with vinegar to drink. But after tasting it, he didn't want to drink it. NRS 35 And when they had crucified him, they divided his clothes among themselves by casting lots; CEB 35 After they crucified him, they divided up his clothes among them by drawing lots. NRS 36 then they sat down there and kept watch over him. CEB 36 They sat there, guarding him. NRS 37 Over his head they put the charge against him, which read, "This is Jesus, the King of the Jews." CEB 37 They placed above his head the charge against him. It read, "This is Jesus, the king of the Jews." NRS 38 Then two bandits were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. CEB 38 They crucified with him two outlaws, one on his right side and one on his left. NRS 39 Those who passed by derided him, shaking their heads CEB 39 Those who were walking by insulted Jesus, shaking their heads NRS 40 and saying, "You who would destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross." CEB 40 and saying, "So you were going to destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, were you? Save yourself! If you are God's Son, come down from the cross." NRS 41 In the same way the chief priests also, along with the scribes and elders, were mocking him, saying, CEB 41 In the same way, the chief priests, along with the legal experts and the elders, were making fun of him, saying, NRS 42 "He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the King of Israel; let him come down from the cross now, and we will believe in him. CEB 42 "He saved others, but he can't save himself. He's the king of Israel, so let him come down from the cross now. Then we'll believe in him. NRS 43 He trusts in God; let God deliver him now, if he wants to; for he said, "I am God's Son.' " CEB 43 He trusts in God, so let God deliver him now if he wants to. He said, ‘I'm God's Son.'" NRS 44 The bandits who were crucified with him also taunted him in the same way. CEB 44 The outlaws who were crucified with him insulted him in the same way. NRS 45 From noon on, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. CEB 45 From noon until three in the afternoon the whole earth was dark. NRS 46 And about three o'clock Jesus cried with a loud voice, "Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?" that is, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" CEB 46 At about three Jesus cried out with a loud shout, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani," which means, "My God, my God, why have you left me?" NRS 47 When some of the bystanders heard it, they said, "This man is calling for Elijah." CEB 47 After hearing him, some standing there said, "He's calling Elijah." NRS 48 At once one of them ran and got a sponge, filled it with sour wine, put it on a stick, and gave it to him to drink. CEB 48 One of them ran over, took a sponge full of vinegar, and put it on a pole. He offered it to Jesus to drink. NRS 49 But the others said, "Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him." CEB 49 But the rest of them said, "Let's see if Elijah will come and save him." NRS 50 Then Jesus cried again with a loud voice and breathed his last. CEB 50 Again Jesus cried out with a loud shout. Then he died. NRS 51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, and the rocks were split. CEB 51 Look, the curtain of the sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split, NRS 52 The tombs also were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised. CEB 52 and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised. NRS 53 After his resurrection they came out of the tombs and entered the holy city and appeared to many. CEB 53 After Jesus' resurrection they came out of their graves and went into the holy city where they appeared to many people. NRS 54 Now when the centurion and those with him, who were keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were terrified and said, "Truly this man was God's Son!" CEB 54 When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and what had just happened, they were filled with awe and said, "This was certainly God's Son." NRS 55 Many women were also there, looking on from a distance; they had followed Jesus from Galilee and had provided for him. CEB 55 Many women were watching from a distance. They had followed Jesus from Galilee to serve him. NRS 56 Among them were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee. CEB 56 Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of Zebedee's sons. NRS 57 When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who was also a disciple of Jesus. CEB 57 That evening a man named Joseph came. He was a rich man from Arimathea who had become a disciple of Jesus. NRS 58 He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus; then Pilate ordered it to be given to him. CEB 58 He came to Pilate and asked for Jesus' body. Pilate gave him permission to take it. NRS 59 So Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth CEB 59 Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, NRS 60 and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn in the rock. He then rolled a great stone to the door of the tomb and went away. CEB 60 and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had carved out of the rock. After he rolled a large stone at the door of the tomb, he went away. NRS 61 Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were there, sitting opposite the tomb. CEB 61 Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were there, sitting in front of the tomb. NRS 62 The next day, that is, after the day of Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate CEB 62 The next day, which was the day after Preparation Day, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate. NRS 63 and said, "Sir, we remember what that impostor said while he was still alive, "After three days I will rise again.' CEB 63 They said, "Sir, we remember that while that deceiver was still alive he said, ‘After three days I will arise.' NRS 64 Therefore command the tomb to be made secure until the third day; otherwise his disciples may go and steal him away, and tell the people, "He has been raised from the dead,' and the last deception would be worse than the first." CEB 64 Therefore, order the grave to be sealed until the third day. Otherwise, his disciples may come and steal the body and tell the people, ‘He's been raised from the dead.' This last deception will be worse than the first." NRS 65 Pilate said to them, "You have a guard of soldiers; go, make it as secure as you can." CEB 65 Pilate replied, "You have soldiers for guard duty. Go and make it as secure as you know how." NRS 66 So they went with the guard and made the tomb secure by sealing the stone. CEB 66 Then they went and secured the tomb by sealing the stone and posting the guard.
