CHAPTER 23
1And all the multitude of them arose, and led him to Pilate.
2And they began to accuse him, and said, We have found this turning upside-down our folk, and forbidding tribute to be given to the emperor [or to Caesar], and saying that himself is Christ a king [or and saying himself to be Christ king.]
3And Pilate asked him, and said, Art thou king of Jews? And he answered, and said, Thou sayest.
4And Pilate said to the princes of priests, and to the people, I find nothing of cause in this man.
5And they waxed stronger, and said, He moveth the people, teaching through all Judea, beginning from Galilee till hither.
6And Pilate hearing Galilee asked, if he were a man of Galilee.
7And when he knew that he was of the power of Herod, he sent him to Herod; which was [or he was] at Jerusalem in those days.
8And when Herod saw Jesus, he joyed full much; for long time he coveted to see him, for he heard many things of him, and hoped to see some token [or some miracle] done of him.
9And he asked him in many words; and he answered nothing to him.
10And the princes of priests, and the scribes stood, steadfastly accusing him.
11But Herod with his host despised him, and scorned him, and clothed him with a white cloth, and sent him again to Pilate.
12And Herod and Pilate were made friends from that day [or in that day]; for before they were enemies together.
13And Pilate called together the princes of priests, and the magistrates of the people,
14and said to them, Ye have brought to me this man, as turning away the people, and lo! I asking before you find no cause in this man, of these things, in which ye accuse him;
15neither Herod, for he hath sent him again to us, and lo! nothing worthy of death is done to him.
16And therefore I shall amend him, and deliver him [chastised].
17But he must needs [or had need to] deliver to them one by the feast day.
18And all the people cried together, and said, Do him away, and deliver to us Barabbas;
19which was sent into prison for disturbing, [or some dissention, or sedition], made in the city, and for manslaying.
20And again Pilate spake to them, and would deliver [or willing to deliver] Jesus.
21And they cried out, and said, Crucify, crucify him.
22And the third time he said to them, For what evil hath he done? I find no cause of death in him; there-fore I shall chastise him, and [I] shall deliver him.
23And they continued with great voices asking [or they continued asking with great voices], that he should be crucified; and the voices of them waxed strong.
24And Pilate deemed their asking to be done.
25And he delivered to them him, that for manslaying and sedition was sent into prison, whom they asked; but he betook Jesus to their will.
26And when they led him, they took a man, Simon of Cyrene, coming from the town, and they laid on him the cross to bear after Jesus.
27And there pursued him much people, and women that bewailed, and bemourned him.
28And Jesus turned to them, and said, Daughters of Jerusalem, do not ye weep on me, but weep ye on yourselves and on your sons.
29For lo! days shall come, in which it shall be said, Blessed be barren women, and [the] wombs that have not born children, and the teats that have not given suck.
30Then they shall begin to say to mountains, Fall ye down on us, and to small hills, Cover ye us.
31For if in a green tree they do these things [or if they do these things in a green tree], what shall be done in a dry?
32Also other two wicked men were led with him, to be slain.
33And when they came into a place, that is called of Calvary, [+or after that they came to a place, which is called Calvary], there they crucified him, and the thieves, one on the right half, and the other on the left half.
34But Jesus said, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. And they parted his clothes, and cast lots.
35And the people stood abiding; and the princes scorned him with them, and said, Other men he made safe; make he himself safe, if this be Christ, the chosen of God.
36And the knights nighed, and scorned him, and proffered [or offered] vinegar to him,
37and said, If thou art king of Jews, make thee safe.
38And the superscription was written over him with Greek letters, and of Latin, and of Hebrew, This is the king of Jews.
39And one of these thieves that hanged, blasphemed him, and said, If thou art Christ, make thyself safe and us.
40But the other answering, blamed him, and said, Neither thou dreadest God, [thou] that art in the same condemnation? [or the same damnation?]
41And truly we justly, for we have received worthy things to our works [or deeds]; but this did nothing of evil [or soothly this hath done no evil].
42And he said to Jesus, Lord, have mind of me, when thou comest into thy kingdom.
43And Jesus said to him, Truly I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise.
44And it was almost the sixth hour, and darknesses were made on all the earth, into [or till] the ninth hour.
45And the sun was made dark, and the veil of the temple was rent atwo [or was cut down the middle].
46And Jesus crying with a great voice, said, Father, into thine hands I betake my spirit. And he saying these things, gave up the ghost, [or sent out the spirit, or died].
47And the centurion seeing that thing that was done, glorified God, and said, Verily, this man was just.
48And all the people of them that were there together at this spectacle, and saw those things that were done, smote their breasts, and turned again.
49But all his known stood afar, and women that pursued him from Galilee, seeing these things.
50And lo! a man, Joseph by name, of Arimathaea, a city of Judea, that was a decurion, [that is, having ten men under him], a good man and a just [or a good man and just],
51this man consented not to the counsel and to the deeds of them; and he abode the kingdom of God.
52This Joseph came to Pilate, and asked the body of Jesus,
53and took it down, and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and laid him in a grave hewn, in which not yet any man had been laid [or was put].
54And the day was the evening of the holiday, [+or of the holy day, or the making ready of pask], and the sabbath began to shine.
55And the women pursuing, that came with him from Galilee, saw the grave, and how his body was laid.
56And they turned again, and made ready sweet smelling spices, and ointments; but in the sabbath they rested, after the commandment.
