23:2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this man perverting our nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, and saying that he himself is Christ a king.
23:3 And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said, Thou sayest.
23:5 But they were the more urgent, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Judaea, and beginning from Galilee even unto this place.
23:7 And when he knew that he was of Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him unto Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem in these days.
23:8 Now when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was of a long time desirous to see him, because he had heard concerning him; and he hoped to see some miracle done by him.
23:11 And Herod with his soldiers set him at nought, and mocked him, and arraying him in gorgeous apparel sent him back to Pilate.
23:12 And Herod and Pilate became friends with each other that very day: for before they were at enmity between themselves.
23:14 and said unto them, Ye brought unto me this man, as one that perverteth the people: and behold, I having examined him before you, found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him:
23:15 no, nor yet Herod: for he sent him back unto us; and behold, nothing worthy of death hath been done by him.
23:22 And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath this man done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him and release him.
23:23 But they were urgent with loud voices, asking that he might be crucified. And their voices prevailed.
23:25 And he released him that for insurrection and murder had been cast into prison, whom they asked for; but Jesus he delivered up to their will.
23:26 And when they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon of Cyrene, coming from the country, and laid on him the cross, to bear it after Jesus.
23:27 And there followed him a great multitude of the people, and of women who bewailed and lamented him.
23:28 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.
23:29 For behold, the days are coming, in which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the breasts that never gave suck.
23:33 And when they came unto the place which is called The skull, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand and the other on the left.
23:34 And Jesus said, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And parting his garments among them, they cast lots.
23:35 And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also scoffed at him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if this is the Christ of God, his chosen.
23:39 And one of the malefactors that were hanged railed on him, saying, Art not thou the Christ? save thyself and us.
23:40 But the other answered, and rebuking him said, Dost thou not even fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
23:41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
23:44 And it was now about the sixth hour, and a darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour,
23:46 And Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said this, he gave up the ghost.
23:47 And when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
23:48 And all the multitudes that came together to this sight, when they beheld the things that were done, returned smiting their breasts.
23:49 And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed with him from Galilee, stood afar off, seeing these things.
23:51 (he had not consented to their counsel and deed), `a man' of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews, who was looking for the kingdom of God:
23:53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid him in a tomb that was hewn in stone, where never man had yet lain.
23:55 And the women, who had come with him out of Galilee, followed after, and beheld the tomb, and how his body was laid.
23:56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments. And on the sabbath they rested according to the commandment.
