15:1And straightway in the morning the chief priests with the elders and scribes, and the whole council, held a consultation, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him up to Pilate. 15:2And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering saith unto him, Thou sayest. 15:3And the chief priests accused him of many things. 15:4And Pilate again asked him, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they accuse thee of. 15:5But Jesus no more answered anything; insomuch that Pilate marvelled. 15:6Now at the feast he used to release unto them one prisoner, whom they asked of him.15:7And there was one called Barabbas, lying bound with them that had made insurrection, men who in the insurrection had committed murder. 15:8And the multitude went up and began to ask him to do as he was wont to do unto them. 15:9And Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews? 15:10For he perceived that for envy the chief priests had delivered him up. 15:11But the chief priests stirred up the multitude, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them. 15:12And Pilate again answered and said unto them, What then shall I do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews? 15:13And they cried out again, Crucify him. 15:14And Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out exceedingly, Crucify him. 15:15And Pilate, wishing to content the multitude, released unto them Barabbas, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified. 15:16And the soldiers led him away within the court, which is the Praetorium; and they call together the whole band. 15:17And they clothe him with purple, and platting a crown of thorns, they put it on him; 15:18and they began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews! 15:19And they smote his head with a reed, and spat upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him. 15:20And when they had mocked him, they took off from him the purple, and put on him his garments. And they lead him out to crucify him. 15:21And they compel one passing by, Simon of Cyrene, coming from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to go with them, that he might bear his cross. 15:22And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull. 15:23And they offered him wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not. 15:24And they crucify him, and part his garments among them, casting lots upon them, what each should take. 15:25And it was the third hour, and they crucified him. 15:26And the superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS. 15:27And with him they crucify two robbers; one on his right hand, and one on his left.15:28And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was reckoned with transgressors.15:29And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ha! Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, 15:30save thyself, and come down from the cross. 15:31In like manner also the chief priests mocking him among themselves with the scribes said, He saved others; himself he cannot save. 15:32Let the Christ, the King of Israel, now come down from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reproached him. 15:33And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. 15:34And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? 15:35And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elijah. 15:36And one ran, and filling a sponge full of vinegar, put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let be; let us see whether Elijah cometh to take him down. 15:37And Jesus uttered a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. 15:38And the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom. 15:39And when the centurion, who stood by over against him, saw that he so gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God. 15:40And there were also women beholding from afar: among whom were both Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;15:41who, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him; and many other women that came up with him unto Jerusalem. 15:42And when even was now come, because it was the Preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath, 15:43there came Joseph of Arimathaea, a councillor of honorable estate, who also himself was looking for the kingdom of God; and he boldly went in unto Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus. 15:44And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead. 15:45And when he learned it of the centurion, he granted the corpse to Joseph. 15:46And he bought a linen cloth, and taking him down, wound him in the linen cloth, and laid him in a tomb which had been hewn out of a rock; and he rolled a stone against the door of the tomb. 15:47And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.
