19:1 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged [him].
19:2 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put [it] on
his head, and they put on him a purple robe,
19:3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with
19:4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith to them,
Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find
no fault in him.
19:5 Then Jesus came forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the
purple robe. And [Pilate] saith to them, Behold the man!
19:6 When therefore the chief priests and officers saw him, they
cried out, saying, Crucify [him], crucify [him]. Pilate saith
to them, Take ye him, and crucify [him]: for I find no fault in
19:7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he
ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
19:8 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more
19:9 And went again into the judgment-hall, and saith to Jesus,
Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
19:10 Then saith Pilate to him, Speakest thou not to me? knowest
thou not, that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to
19:11 Jesus answered, Thou couldst have no power against me;
except it were given thee from above: therefore he that
delivered me to thee hath the greater sin.
19:12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the
Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not
Cesar's friend. Whoever maketh himself a king, speaketh against
19:13 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus
forth, and sat down on the judgment-seat, in a place that is
called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.
19:14 And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the
sixth hour: and he saith to the Jews, Behold your King!
19:15 But they cried out, Away with [him], away with [him],
crucify him. Pilate saith to them, Shall I crucify your King?
The chief priests answered, We have no king but Cesar.
19:16 Then therefore he delivered him to them to be crucified.
And they took Jesus, and led [him] away.
19:17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called
[the place] of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew,
19:18 Where they crucified him, and two others with him, on each
side one, and Jesus in the midst.
19:19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put [it] on the cross. And
the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
19:20 Many of the Jews then read this title: for the place where
Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in
Hebrew, Greek, [and] Latin.
19:21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write
not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the
19:22 Pilate answered, What I have written, I have written.
19:23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his
garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and
also [his] coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the
19:24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend 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 for my vesture they cast lots. These things therefore
the soldiers did.
19:25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus, his mother, and his
mother's sister, Mary the [wife] of Cleophas, and Mary
19:26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple
standing by, whom he loved, he saith to his mother, Woman,
behold thy son!
19:27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from
that hour that disciple took her to his own [home].
19:28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now
accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I
19:29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they
filled a spunge with vinegar, and put [it] upon hyssop, and put
[it] to his mouth.
19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It
is finished: and he bowed his head, and expired.
19:31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that
the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath,
(for that sabbath was a great day,) besought Pilate that their
legs might be broken, and [that] they might be taken away.
19:32 Then came the soldiers, and broke the legs of the first,
and of the other who was crucified with him.
19:33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead
already, they broke not his legs:
19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and
forthwith came out blood and water.
19:35 And he that saw [it], testified, and his testimony is
true: and he knoweth that he speaketh truth, that ye may
19:36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be
fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.
19:37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him
whom they pierced.
19:38 And after this, Joseph of Arimathea (being a disciple of
Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews) besought Pilate that
he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave [him]
leave. He came therefore and took the body of Jesus.
19:39 And there came also Nicodemus (who at the first came to
Jesus by night) and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about
a hundred pound [weight].
19:40 Then they took the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen
cloths, with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
19:41 Now in the place where he was crucified, there was a
garden; and in the garden a new sepulcher, in which was never
man yet laid.
19:42 There they laid Jesus therefore, because of the Jews'
preparation-[day], for the sepulcher was nigh at hand.
