30 They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.

2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Cesar, saying, That he himself is Christ a king.

3 And Pilate asked hiin, saying, Art thou the king of the Jews ? And he answered him and said, Thou sayest it.

31 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death :

32 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die.

33. Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto bim Art thou the king of the Jews ?

34 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?

35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me. What hast thou done?

36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now is my kingdom not from hence.

37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.

5 And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.

6 When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilean.

7 And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.

8 And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad : tor he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him: and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him.

9 Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing.

10 And the chief priests and scribes stood ani ...cuently accused him.

11 And Herod with his men of war set him ini it, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robur, isted senten again to Pilate.

1.2 And the same day Pilate and Herod were male friends together; for before they were at enmity betul peix themselves.

13 And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests, and the rulers, and the people,

14 Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto 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 whereof ye accuse him ;

15 No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him ; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him:

16 I will therefore chastise him, and release him.

15 Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would,

16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.

17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that ) release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus, which is called Christ?

18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.

19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man : for. I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.

20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude, that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified,

23 And the governor said, Why? what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

1 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.

2 The soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his lead, and they put on him a purple robe,

3 And said, Hail, king of the Jews : and they smote hinu with their hand, and spat upon him.

4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.

5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man !

6 When the chief priests, therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him : for I find no fault in him.

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.

8 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid:

9 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou ? But Jesus gave him no answer.

10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? Knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?

11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.

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: whosoever maketh himself a king, speaketlı against Cesar.

13 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat, in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew; Gabbatia.

14 And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your king !

15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King ! The chief priests answered, We have no king but Cesar.

16 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be chlicified. And they took Jesus and led him away, and he released Barabbas unto them,

24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person : see ye to it.

25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

LESSON LXXV.

Matthew, Chap. 27. Luke, Chap. 22. John, Chap. 10. 32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.

27 And there followed him a great company of people, and of wonien, which also bewailed and lamented him.

28 But Jesus turning unto them, said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me,

but

weep for yourselves, and for your children.

29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.

33 And when they were come to the place which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and two malefactors ; one on the right hand, and the other on the left. Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.

19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title then read many of the Jews; for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.

21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am the King of the Jews. Pilate answered, What I have written, I have written.

23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, (and made four parts, for every soldier a part) and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.

24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not remi 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 did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall : and when he had tasted thereof he would not drink. And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh, but he received it not.

39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads, and saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and

[ocr errors]

Save.

puuldest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.

41 Likewise also the chief priests, mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said, He saved others, himself he cannot

If lie be the king of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him. He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed (41 him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering, rebuked him, saying, Dost thou not fear Guil, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?

41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds : but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me, when thou comest into thy kingdom.

43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily, I say unto thee, Tosay thou shalt be with me in Paradise.

44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.

26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

15 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour, Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani ? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias. After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

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 inouth. The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save hini.

When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished. And when he had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having aid thus, he gave up the ghost.
