Luke 23
1And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate [armed with a spear].
2And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this [fellow] perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar [venerable], saying that he himself is Moshiach [Messiah] a King.
3And Pilate [armed with a spear] asked him, saying, Are youi the King of the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah]? And he answered him and said, youi say [it].
4Then said Pilate [armed with a spear] to the chief priests and [to] the people, I find no fault in this man.
5And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galil [circuit, district] to this place.
6When Pilate [armed with a spear] heard of Galil [circuit, district], he asked whether the man were a Galilaean [circle].
7And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod [heroic]’s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod [heroic], who himself also was at Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] at that time.
8And when Herod [heroic] saw Yeshua [God is Salvation], he was exceeding glad: for 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.
9Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing.
10And the chief priests and Torah-teachers (Scribes) stood and vehemently accused him.
11And Herod [heroic] with his men of war set him at nothing, and deceived [him], and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate [armed with a spear].
12And the same day Pilate [armed with a spear] and Herod [heroic] were made friends together: for before they were at hatred (being an enemy) between themselves.
13And Pilate [armed with a spear], when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people,
14Said unto them, You2f have brought this man unto me, as one that perverts the people: and, behold, I, having examined [him] before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof you2f accuse him:
15No, nor yet Herod [heroic]: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him.
16I will therefore chastise him, and release [him].
17(For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)
18And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this [man], and release unto us Bar-Abba [son of a father]:
19(Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.)
20Pilate [armed with a spear] therefore, willing to release Yeshua [God is Salvation], spoke again to them.
21But they cried, saying, Crucify [him], crucify him.
22And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil has he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let [him] go.
23And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.
24And Pilate [armed with a spear] gave sentence that it should be as they required.
25And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Yeshua [God is Salvation] to their will.
26And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Shim’on [he has heard], a Cyrenian [supremacy of the bridle], coming out of the country, and on him they laid the stake (cross), that he might bear [it] after Yeshua [God is Salvation].
27And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him.
28But Yeshua [God is Salvation] turning unto them said, Daughters of Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.
29For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) [are] the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts which never gave suck.
30Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
31For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
32And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.
33And when they were 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.
34Then said Yeshua [God is Salvation], Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his clothing, and cast lots.
35And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided [him], saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Moshiach [Messiah], the chosen of God-Theos.
36And the soldiers also deceived him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar,
37And saying, If youi be the king of the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah], save yourself.
38And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek [unstable: the miry one], and Latin, and ‘Evri’ot [Hebrew], THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
39And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If youi be Moshiach [Messiah], save yourself and us.
40But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Do not youi fear God-Theos, seeing youi are in the same condemnation?
41And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man has done nothing amiss.
42And he said unto Yeshua [God is Salvation], Lord - Kurios, remember me when youi come into youri kingdom.
43And Yeshua [God is Salvation] said unto him, Truly I say unto youi, To day shall youi be with me in paradise.
44And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
45And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
46And when Yeshua [God is Salvation] had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into youri hands I commend my Spirit [Ruach]: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
47Now when the Centurion (Roman commander of an hundred men) saw what was done, he glorified God-Theos, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
48And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, struck their breasts, and returned.
49And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galil [circuit, district], stood afar off, beholding these things.
50And, behold, [there was] a man named Yosef [God will add], a counsellor; [and he was] a good man, and a just:
51 (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) [he was] of Ramatayim [heights], a city of the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah]: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God-Theos.
52This [man] went unto Pilate [armed with a spear], and begged the body of Yeshua [God is Salvation].
53And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was cut in stone, wherein never man before was laid.
54And that day was the preparation, and the Shabbat [rest] drew on.
55And the women also, which came with him from Galil [circuit, district], followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid.
56And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the Shabbat [rest] day according to the commandment.
