041:015:001
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.


041:015:002
And Pilate asked him,
Art thou the King of the Jews?
And he answering said unto them,
Thou sayest it.


041:015:003
And the chief priests accused him of many things:
but he answered nothing.


041:015:004
And Pilate asked him again,
saying,
Answerest thou nothing?
behold how many things they witness against thee.


041:015:005
But Jesus yet answered nothing;
so that Pilate marvelled.


041:015:006
Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner,
whomsoever they desired.


041:015:007
And there was one named Barabbas,
which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him,
who had committed murder in the insurrection.


041:015:008
And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them.


041:015:009
But Pilate answered them,
saying,
Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?


041:015:010
For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.


041:015:011
But the chief priests moved the people,
that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.


041:015:012
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?


041:015:013
And they cried out again,
Crucify him.


041:015:014
Then Pilate said unto them,
Why,
what evil hath he done?
And they cried out the more exceedingly,
Crucify him.


041:015:015
And so Pilate,
willing to content the people,
released Barabbas unto them,
and delivered Jesus,
when he had scourged him,
to be crucified.


041:015:016
And the soldiers led him away into the hall,
called Praetorium;
and they call together the whole band.


041:015:017
And they clothed him with purple,
and platted a crown of thorns,
and put it about his head,


041:015:018
And began to salute him,
Hail,
King of the Jews!


041:015:019
And they smote him on the head with a reed,
and did spit upon him,
and bowing their knees worshipped him.


041:015:020
And when they had mocked him,
they took off the purple from him,
and put his own clothes on him,
and led him out to crucify him.


041:015:021
And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian,
who passed by,
coming out of the country,
the father of Alexander and Rufus,
to bear his cross.


041:015:022
And they bring him unto the place Golgotha,
which is,
being interpreted,
The place of a skull.


041:015:023
And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh:
but he received it not.


041:015:024
And when they had crucified him,
they parted his garments,
casting lots upon them,
what every man should take.


041:015:025
And it was the third hour,
and they crucified him.


041:015:026
And the superscription of his accusation was written over,
THE KING OF THE JEWS.


041:015:027
And with him they crucify two thieves;
the one on his right hand,
and the other on his left.


041:015:028
And the scripture was fulfilled,
which saith,
And he was numbered with the transgressors.


041:015:029
And they that passed by railed on him,
wagging their heads,
and saying,
Ah,
thou that destroyest the temple,
and buildest it in three days,


041:015:030
Save thyself,
and come down from the cross.


041:015:031
Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes,
He saved others;
himself he cannot save.


041:015:032
Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross,
that we may see and believe.
And they that were crucified with him reviled him.


041:015:033
And when the sixth hour was come,
there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.


041:015:034
And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice,
saying,
Eloi,
Eloi,
lama sabachthani?
which is,
being interpreted,
My God,
my God,
why hast thou forsaken me?


041:015:035
And some of them that stood by,
when they heard it,
said,
Behold,
he calleth Elias.


041:015:036
And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar,
and put it on a reed,
and gave him to drink,
saying,
Let alone;
let us see whether Elias will come to take him down.


041:015:037
And Jesus cried with a loud voice,
and gave up the ghost.


041:015:038
And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.


041:015:039
And when the centurion,
which stood over against him,
saw that he so cried out,
and gave up the ghost,
he said,
Truly this man was the Son of God.


041:015:040
There were also women looking on afar off:
among whom was Mary Magdalene,
and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses,
and Salome;


041:015:041
(Who also,
when he was in Galilee,
followed him,
and ministered unto him;)
and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.


041:015:042
And now when the even was come,
because it was the preparation,
that is,
the day before the sabbath,


041:015:043
Joseph of Arimathaea,
an honourable counsellor,
which also waited for the kingdom of God,
came,
and went in boldly unto Pilate,
and craved the body of Jesus.


041:015:044
And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead:
and calling unto him the centurion,
he asked him whether he had been any while dead.


041:015:045
And when he knew it of the centurion,
he gave the body to Joseph.


041:015:046
And he bought fine linen,
and took him down,
and wrapped him in the linen,
and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock,
and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre.


041:015:047
And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.
