LK 23:1 And having risen, the whole multitude of them did lead him to Pilate, LK 23:2 and began to accuse him, saying, `This one we found perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying himself to be Christ a king. LK 23:3 And Pilate questioned him, saying, `Thou art the king of the Jews?and he answering him, said, `Thou dost say `it'.' LK 23:4 And Pilate said unto the chief priests, and the multitude, `I find no fault in this man; LK 23:5 and they were the more urgent, saying -- `He doth stir up the people, teaching throughout the whole of Judea -- having begun from Galilee -- unto this place. LK 23:6 And Pilate having heard of Galilee, questioned if the man is a Galilean, LK 23:7 and having known that he is from the jurisdiction of Herod, he sent him back unto Herod, he being also in Jerusalem in those days. LK 23:8 And Herod having seen Jesus did rejoice exceedingly, for he was wishing for a long `timeto see him, because of hearing many things about him, and he was hoping some sign to see done by him, LK 23:9 and was questioning him in many words, and he answered him nothing. LK 23:10 And the chief priests and the scribes stood vehemently accusing him, LK 23:11 and Herod with his soldiers having set him at nought, and having mocked, having put around him gorgeous apparel, did send him back to Pilate, LK 23:12 and both Pilate and Herod became friends on that day with one another, for they were before at enmity between themselves. LK 23:13 And Pilate having called together the chief priests, and the rulers, and the people, LK 23:14 said unto them, `Ye brought to me this man as perverting the people, and lo, I before you having examined, found in this man no fault in those things ye bring forward against him; LK 23:15 no, nor yet Herod, for I sent you back unto him, and lo, nothing worthy of death is having been done by him; LK 23:16 having chastised, therefore, I will release him, LK 23:17 for it was necessary for him to release to them one at every feast, LK 23:18 and they cried out -- the whole multitude -- saying, `Away with this one, and release to us Barabbas, LK 23:19 who had been, because of a certain sedition made in the city, and murder, cast into prison. LK 23:20 Pilate again then -- wishing to release Jesus -- called to them, LK 23:21 but they were calling out, saying, `Crucify, crucify him. LK 23:22 And he a third time said unto them, `Why, what evil did he? no cause of death did I find in him; having chastised him, then, I will release `him'.' LK 23:23 And they were pressing with loud voices asking him to be crucified, and their voices, and those of the chief priests, were prevailing, LK 23:24 and Pilate gave judgment for their request being done, LK 23:25 and he released him who because of sedition and murder hath been cast into the prison, whom they were asking, and Jesus he gave up to their will. LK 23:26 And as they led him away, having taken hold on Simon, a certain Cyrenian, coming from the field, they put on him the cross, to bear `itbehind Jesus. LK 23:27 And there was following him a great multitude of the people, and of women, who also were beating themselves and lamenting him, LK 23:28 and Jesus having turned unto them, said, `Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but for yourselves weep ye, and for your children; LK 23:29 for, lo, days do come, in which they shall say, Happy the barren, and wombs that did not bare, and paps that did not give suck; LK 23:30 then they shall begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us, and to the hills, Cover us; -- LK 23:31 for, if in the green tree they do these things -- in the dry what may happen? LK 23:32 And there were also others -- two evil-doers -- with him, to be put to death; LK 23:33 and when they came to the place that is called Skull, there they crucified him and the evil-doers, one on the right hand and one on the left. LK 23:34 And Jesus said, `Father, forgive them, for they have not known what they do;and parting his garments they cast a lot. LK 23:35 And the people were standing, looking on, and the rulers also were sneering with them, saying, `Others he saved, let him save himself, if this be the Christ, the choice one of God. LK 23:36 And mocking him also were the soldiers, coming near and offering vinegar to him, LK 23:37 and saying, `If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself. LK 23:38 And there was also a superscription written over him, in letters of Greek, and Roman, and Hebrew, `This is the King of the Jews. LK 23:39 And one of the evil-doers who were hanged, was speaking evil of him, saying, `If thou be the Christ, save thyself and us. LK 23:40 And the other answering, was rebuking him, saying, `Dost thou not even fear God, that thou art in the same judgment? LK 23:41 and we indeed righteously, for things worthy of what we did we receive back, but this one did nothing out of place; LK 23:42 and he said to Jesus, `Remember me, lord, when thou mayest come in thy reign; LK 23:43 and Jesus said to him, `Verily I say to thee, To-day with me thou shalt be in the paradise. LK 23:44 And it was, as it were, the sixth hour, and darkness came over all the land till the ninth hour, LK 23:45 and the sun was darkened, and the vail of the sanctuary was rent in the midst, LK 23:46 and having cried with a loud voice, Jesus said, `Father, to Thy hands I commit my spirit;and these things having said, he breathed forth the spirit. LK 23:47 And the centurion having seen what was done, did glorify God, saying, `Really this man was righteous; LK 23:48 and all the multitudes who were come together to this sight, beholding the things that came to pass, smiting their breasts did turn back; LK 23:49 and all his acquaintances stood afar off, and women who did follow him from Galilee, beholding these things. LK 23:50 And lo, a man, by name Joseph, being a counsellor, a man good and righteous, LK 23:51 -- he was not consenting to their counsel and deed -- from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, who also himself was expecting the reign of God, LK 23:52 he, having gone near to Pilate, asked the body of Jesus, LK 23:53 and having taken it down, he wrapped it in fine linen, and placed it in a tomb hewn out, where no one was yet laid. LK 23:54 And the day was a preparation, and sabbath was approaching, LK 23:55 and the women also who have come with him out of Galilee having followed after, beheld the tomb, and how his body was placed, LK 23:56 and having turned back, they made ready spices and ointments, and on the sabbath, indeed, they rested, according to the command.
