Crucify him!” NIV 21 But they kept shouting, “Crucify him! Crucify him!” NLT 22 For the third time he demanded, “Why? What crime has he committed? I have found no reason to sentence him to death. So I will have him flogged, and then I will release him.” NIV 22 For the third time he spoke to them: “Why? What crime has this man committed? I have found in him no grounds for the death penalty. Therefore I will have him punished and then release him.” NLT 23 But the mob shouted louder and louder, demanding that Jesus be crucified, and their voices prevailed.

But he turned Jesus over to them to do as they wished.
