1 AND forthwith in the morning the chief priests with the elders and with the scribes and with the whole congregation made council; and they bound Jeshu, and led him and delivered him to Pilatos the governor.
2 And Pilatos asked him, Art thou the King of the Jihudoyee? And he replied and said to him, Thou hast said.
3 And the chief priests accused him of many (things):
4 but he, Pilatos, asked him again and said to him, Returnest thou not an answer? see how many are witnessing against thee.
5 But he, Jeshu, did not give any answer; so that Pilatos admired.
6 But he was accustomed at every festival to release to them of the bound one whom they requested;
7 and there was one who was called Bar-aba, who was bound with the makers of sedition, they who murder in the sedition had committed.
8 And the people cried out and began to demand, that as he was used he would do to them.
9 But Pilatos answered and said, Will you that I release to you the King of the Jihudoyee?
10 For Pilatos knew that for envy the chief priests had delivered him.
11 But the chief priests the more incited the multitude, that Bar-aba he should release to them.
12 But he, Pilatos, said to them, What then will you that I do to this, whom ye call King of the Jihudoyee?
13 And they again cried, Crucify him!
14 Pilatos said to them, Why? what evil hath he done? And they the more exceedingly cried, Crucify him.
15 But Pilatos was willing to serve the will of the people, and released to them Bar-aba, and delivered up to them Jeshu, scourged, to be crucified.
16 And the soldiers led him into the court which is the praetorium, and called the whole band;
17 and they robed him in purple, and twisted and set upon him a crown of thorns,
18 and they began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jihudoyee!
19 and they struck him upon the head with a cane, and spat in his face, and kneeled upon their knees and worshipped him.
20 And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the purple, and clothed him with his own vestments, and led him forth to crucify him.
21 AND they constrained one who was passing, Shemun Kurinoia, who was coming from the field, the father of Alexander and of Rufus, to bear his cross.
22 And they brought him to Gogultha, a place which is interpreted A skull.
23 And they gave him to drink wine which was mixed with myrrh; but he would not receive.
24 And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, and cast for them lots who should take them.
25 And it was the third hour when they crucified him.
26 And there was written the occasion of his death in the inscription, This is the King of the Jihudoyee.
27 And they crucified with him two thieves, one on his right and one on his left;
28 and was accomplished the Scripture which said, That with the wicked he was reckoned.
29 AND they also who passed by blasphemed against him, wagging their heads and saying, Ho, undoer of the temple and builder of it in three days,
30 deliver thyself and come down from the cross!
31 And so also the chief priests laughing one with one, and the Sophree, and saying, Others he saved, himself he cannot save.
32 The Meshicha King of Isroel, let him descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe on him; and they also who were crucified with him reviled him.
33 AND when it was the sixth hour, there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour.
34 And in the ninth hour Jeshu cried with a high voice and said, Il, Il, Lamona Shabaktoni! Which is, Alohi! Alohi! why hast thou forsaken me?
35 And certain who heard, of them who were standing, said, Elia he calleth;
36 but one ran and filled a sponge with vinegar, and bound it on a rod that he might drink. And they said, Let alone, we will see if Elia cometh to take him down.
37 But he, Jeshu, cried with a high voice, and completed:
38 and the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.
39 But when that centurion who stood near him saw that he cried thus, and ended, (he) said, Assuredly this man was the Son of Aloha.
40 And there were women from afar who were beholding; Mariam Magdalitha, and Mariam mother of Jacub the less and of Josi, and Shaloom;
41 those who, when he was in Galila, adhered to him, and ministered to him, and many others who went up with him to Urishlem.
42 AND when it was evening of the preparation which is before the shabath,
43 came Jauseph, he who was from Rometha, an honourable counsellor, who also himself waited for the kingdom of Aloha. And he took courage, and went in to Pilatos and requested the body of Jeshu.
44 But Pilatos wondered if he were now dead; and he called the centurion and asked him whether before the time he was dead:
45 and when he had learned, he gave the body to Jauseph.
46 And Jauseph bought linen, and took him down and wrapped him in it, and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn in the rock, and rolled a stone against the door of the sepulchre.
47 But Mariam Magdalitha and Mariam, she who was (the mother) of Josi, beheld where he was laid.
