Luke 23

23:1 And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him to
23:2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this [man]
 perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Cesar,
 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 [it].
23:4 Then said Pilate to the chief priests, and [to] the people,
 I find no fault in this man.
23:5 And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the
 people, teaching throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee
 to this place.
23:6 When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man was
 a Galilean.
23:7 And as soon as he knew that he belonged to Herod's
 jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself was also at
 Jerusalem at that time.
23:8 And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he had
 been for a long time, desirous to see him, because he had heard
 many things of him; and he hoped to see some miracle done by
23:9 Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered
 him nothing.
23:10 And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently
 accused him.
23:11 And Herod with his troops set him at naught, and mocked
 [him], and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again
 to Pilate.
23:12 And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends
 together; for before they were at enmity between themselves.
23:13 And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests,
 and the rulers, and the people,
23:14 Said to them, Ye have brought this man to me, as one that
 perverteth the people: and behold, I, having examined [him]
 before you, have found no fault in this man, touching those
 things of which ye accuse him;
23:15 No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and lo, nothing
 worthy of death is done to him:
23:16 I will therefore chastise him, and release [him].
23:17 (For of necessity he must release one to them at the
23:18 And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this
 [man], and release to us Barabbas:
23:19 (Who, for a certain sedition made in the city, and for
 murder, was cast into prison.)
23:20 Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spoke again to
23:21 But they cried, saying, Crucify, crucify him.
23:22 And he said to them the third time, Why, what evil hath he
 done? I have found no cause of death in him; I will therefore
 chastise him, and let [him] go.
23:23 And they were urgent with loud voices, requiring that he
 might be crucified: and the voices of them, and of the chief
 priests prevailed.
23:24 And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they
23:25 And he released to them him that for sedition and murder
 had been cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he
 delivered Jesus to their will.
23:26 And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon a
 Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the
 cross, that he might bear [it] after Jesus.
23:27 And there followed him a great company of people, and of
 women, who also bewailed and lamented him.
23:28 But Jesus turning to them, said, Daughters of Jerusalem,
 weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your
23:29 For behold, the days are coming, in which they shall say,
 Blessed [are] the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and
 the breasts which never nourished infants.
23:30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us;
 and to the hills, Cover us.
23:31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what will be
 done in the dry?
23:32 And two others, [who were] malefactors, were led with him
 to be put to death.
23:33 And when they had come to the place which is called
 Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors; one on
 the right hand, and the other on the left.
23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them: for they know not
 what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
23:35 And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with
 them derided [him], saying, He saved others; let him save
 himself, if he is Christ the chosen of God.
23:36 And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and
 offering him vinegar,
23:37 And saying, If thou art the King of the Jews, save
23:38 And a superscription also was written over him, in letters
 of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
23:39 And one of the malefactors, who were hanged, railed on
 him, saying, If thou art Christ, save thyself and us.
23:40 But the other answering, rebuked him, saying, Dost not
 thou 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.
23:42 And he said to Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest
 into thy kingdom.
23:43 And Jesus said to him, Verily I say to thee, This day
 shalt thou be with me in paradise.
23:44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness
 over all the land until the ninth hour.
23:45 And the sun was darkened, and the vail of the temple was
 rent in the midst.
23:46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said,
 Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said
 thus, he expired.
23:47 Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified
 God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
23:48 And all the people that came together to that sight,
 beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and
23:49 And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him
 from Galilee, stood afar off beholding these things.
23:50 And behold, [there was] a man named Joseph, a counselor:
 [and he was] a good man, and a just:
23:51 (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of
 them) [he was] of Arimathea, a city of the Jews; who also
 himself waited for the kingdom of God.
23:52 This [man] went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.
23:53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it
 in a sepulcher that was hewn in stone, in which man was never
 before laid.
23:54 And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.
23:55 And the women also, who came with him from Galilee,
 followed after, and beheld the sepulcher, and how his body was
23:56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and
 rested on the sabbath, according to the commandment.
