King James Version (KJV)
27Â When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:
2Â And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
3Â Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
4Â Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.
5Â And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
6Â And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.
7Â And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.
8Â Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.
9Â Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;
10Â And gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord appointed me.
11Â And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.
12Â And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.
13Â Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?
14Â And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly.
15Â Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.
16Â And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
17Â Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?
18Â For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.
19Â When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.
20Â But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.
21Â The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.
22Â Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
23Â And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
24Â When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
25Â Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
26Â Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.
15Â And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate.
2Â And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering said unto them, Thou sayest it.
3Â And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing.
4Â And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee.
5Â But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.
6Â Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired.
7Â And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.
8Â And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them.
9Â But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?
10Â For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.
11Â But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.
12Â And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews?
13Â And they cried out again, Crucify him.
14Â Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.
15Â And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.
66Â And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying,
67Â Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:
68Â And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.
69Â Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.
70Â Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.
71Â And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.
23Â And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate.
2Â And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ a King.
3Â And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said, Thou sayest it.
4Â Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man.
5Â And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.
6Â When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilaean.
7Â And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.
8Â And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him.
9Â Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing.
10Â And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused him.
11Â And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate.
12Â And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves.
13Â And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people,
14Â Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him:
15Â No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him.
16Â I will therefore chastise him, and release him.
17Â (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)
18Â And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas:
19Â (Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.)
20Â Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them.
21Â But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.
22Â And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him go.
23Â And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.
24Â And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required.
25Â And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will.
28Â Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.
29Â Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man?
30Â They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.
31Â Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:
32Â That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die.
33Â Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?
34Â Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?
35Â Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?
36Â Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
37Â Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
38Â Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
39Â But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews?
40Â Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
19Â Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.
2Â And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,
3Â And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.
4Â Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.
5Â Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!
6Â When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.
7Â The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
8Â When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;
9Â And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
10Â Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
11Â Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
12Â And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar’s friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.
13Â When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.
14Â And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!
15Â But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.
16Â Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.
