1 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus and scourged him.

2 And the soldiers having platted a crown of thorns, put it on his head, and put on him a purple robe, And said, Hail, king of the Jews.

3 And they smote him on the cheeks.

4 Pilate went out again, and saith to them, Lo, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know, I find no fault in him.

5 Then Jesus came forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe, And he saith to them, Behold the man.

6 But when the chief priests and the officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify, crucify him. Pilate saith to them, Take ye him and crucify him; for I find no fault in him.

7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.

8 When Pilate heard that saying,

9 he was the more afraid, And returned into the palace and saith to Jesus, Whence art thou?

10 But Jesus gave him no answer. Then Pilate saith to him, Speakest thou not to me? Knowest thou not, that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?

11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power over me, unless it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me to thee, hath the greater sin.

12 Upon this Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou release this man, thou art not a friend to Cesar. Whosoever maketh himself a king, opposeth Cesar.

13 Pilate hearing this saying, brought Jesus forth, and sat on the judgment seat, in a place called the Pavement, but in Hebrew, Gabbatha;

14 (It was then the preparation of the passover, and about the third hour:) And saith to the Jews, Behold your king.

15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him. Pilate saith to them, Shall I crucify your king? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Cesar.

16 Then delivered he him to them, to be crucified.

17 And they took Jesus and led him away. And he bearing his cross, went forth to the place, called the place of a skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha:

18 Where they crucified him, and two others with him, one on each side, and Jesus in the midst.

19 And Pilate wrote an inscription also, and put it on the cross: and the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS.

20 Many of the Jews read this inscription; for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.

21 Then said the chief priests to Pilate, Write not, the king of the Jews; but that he said, I am the king of the Jews.

22 Pilate answered, What I have written, I have written.

23 And the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments and made four parts, to every soldier a part, and also his vesture: now the vesture was without seam, woven from the top throughout.

24 They said therefore one to another, Let us not rent it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and cast lots for my vesture. These things therefore the soldiers did.

25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus, his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleopas, and Mary Magdalene.

26 Jesus therefore seeing his mother, and the disciple standing by whom he loved, saith to his mother, Woman, behold thy son.

27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother. And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.

28 After this, Jesus knowing, that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar. And filling a sponge with vinegar, and putting it on a stalk of hyssop, they put it to his mouth.

30 When Jesus had taken the vinegar, he said, It is finished, and bowing the head, he gave up the Ghost.

31 Now because it was the preparation, lest the bodies should remain upon the cross on the sabbath (for that sabbath was a great day) the Jews besought Pilate, that their legs might be broken, and they might be taken away.

32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first and of the other who was crucified with him.

33 But coming to Jesus, when they saw he was dead already, they brake not his legs.

34 But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and forthwith there came out blood and water.

35 And he that saw, hath testified it, and his testimony is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye may believe.

36 For these things were done, that the scripture might be fulfilled, A bone of it shall not be broken.

37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they have pierced.

38 And after these things, Joseph of Arimathea (being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly, for fear of the Jews) asked Pilate leave, to take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore and took the body of Jesus.

39 And Nicodemus also came (who at first had come to Jesus by night) bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pounds.

40 So they took the body of Jesus, and wrapped it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.

41 Now in the place where he was crucified, there was a garden, and in the garden a new sepulchre, in which no man had ever been laid.

42 There therefore they laid Jesus, because of the preparation -day of the Jews; for the sepulchre was nigh.
