Luke 23

23:1 And having risen, the whole multitude of them did lead him to Pilate, 23:2 and began to accuse him, saying, `This one we found perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying himself to be Christ a king.' 23:3 And Pilate questioned him, saying, `Thou art the king of the Jews' and he answering him, said, `Thou dost say [it] .' 23:4 And Pilate said unto the chief priests, and the multitude, `I find no fault in this man;' 23:5 and they were the more urgent, saying--`He doth stir up the people, teaching throughout the whole of Judea--having begun from Galilee--unto this place.' 23:6 And Pilate having heard of Galilee, questioned if the man is a Galilean, 23:7 and having known that he is from the jurisdiction of Herod, he sent him back unto Herod, he being also in Jerusalem in those days. 23:8 And Herod having seen Jesus did rejoice exceedingly, for he was wishing for a long [time] to see him, because of hearing many things about him, and he was hoping some sign to see done by him, 23:9 and was questioning him in many words, and he answered him nothing. 23:10 And the chief priests and the scribes stood vehemently accusing him, 23:11 and Herod with his soldiers having set him at nought, and having mocked, having put around him gorgeous apparel, did send him back to Pilate, 23:12 and both Pilate and Herod became friends on that day with one another, for they were before at enmity between themselves.  23:13 And Pilate having called together the chief priests, and the rulers, and the people, 23:14 said unto them, `Ye brought to me this man as perverting the people, and lo, I before you having examined, found in this man no fault in those things ye bring forward against him; 23:15 no, nor yet Herod, for I sent you back unto him, and lo, nothing worthy of death is having been done by him; 23:16 having chastised, therefore, I will release him,' 23:17 for it was necessary for him to release to them one at every feast, 23:18 and they cried out--the whole multitude--saying, `Away with this one, and release to us Barabbas,' 23:19 who had been, because of a certain sedition made in the city, and murder, cast into prison. 23:20 Pilate again then--wishing to release Jesus--called to them, 23:21 but they were calling out, saying, `Crucify, crucify him.' 23:22 And he a third time said unto them, `Why, what evil did he no cause of death did I find in him; having chastised him, then, I will release [him] .' 23:23 And they were pressing with loud voices asking him to be crucified, and their voices, and those of the chief priests, were prevailing, 23:24 and Pilate gave judgment for their request being done, 23:25 and he released him who because of sedition and murder hath been cast into the prison, whom they were asking, and Jesus he gave up to their will.  23:26 And as they led him away, having taken hold on Simon, a certain Cyrenian, coming from the field, they put on him the cross, to bear [it] behind Jesus. 23:27 And there was following him a great multitude of the people, and of women, who also were beating themselves and lamenting him, 23:28 and Jesus having turned unto them, said, `Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but for yourselves weep ye, and for your children; 23:29 for, lo, days do come, in which they shall say, Happy the barren, and wombs that did not bare, and paps that did not give suck; 23:30 then they shall begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us, and to the hills, Cover us; -- 23:31 for, if in the green tree they do these things--in the dry what may happen'  23:32 And there were also others--two evil-doers--with him, to be put to death; 23:33 and when they came to the place that is called Skull, there they crucified him and the evil-doers, one on the right hand and one on the left. 23:34 And Jesus said, `Father, forgive them, for they have not known what they do;' and parting his garments they cast a lot. 23:35 And the people were standing, looking on, and the rulers also were sneering with them, saying, `Others he saved, let him save himself, if this be the Christ, the choice one of God.' 23:36 And mocking him also were the soldiers, coming near and offering vinegar to him, 23:37 and saying, `If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.' 23:38 And there was also a superscription written over him, in letters of Greek, and Roman, and Hebrew, `This is the King of the Jews.' 23:39 And one of the evil-doers who were hanged, was speaking evil of him, saying, `If thou be the Christ, save thyself and us.' 23:40 And the other answering, was rebuking him, saying, `Dost thou not even fear God, that thou art in the same judgment 23:41 and we indeed righteously, for things worthy of what we did we receive back, but this one did nothing out of place;' 23:42 and he said to Jesus, `Remember me, lord, when thou mayest come in thy reign;' 23:43 and Jesus said to him, `Verily I say to thee, To-day with me thou shalt be in the paradise.'  23:44 And it was, as it were, the sixth hour, and darkness came over all the land till the ninth hour, 23:45 and the sun was darkened, and the vail of the sanctuary was rent in the midst, 23:46 and having cried with a loud voice, Jesus said, `Father, to Thy hands I commit my spirit;' and these things having said, he breathed forth the spirit. 23:47 And the centurion having seen what was done, did glorify God, saying, `Really this man was righteous;' 23:48 and all the multitudes who were come together to this sight, beholding the things that came to pass, smiting their breasts did turn back; 23:49 and all his acquaintances stood afar off, and women who did follow him from Galilee, beholding these things.  23:50 And lo, a man, by name Joseph, being a counsellor, a man good and righteous, 23:51 --he was not consenting to their counsel and deed--from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, who also himself was expecting the reign of God, 23:52 he, having gone near to Pilate, asked the body of Jesus, 23:53 and having taken it down, he wrapped it in fine linen, and placed it in a tomb hewn out, where no one was yet laid. 23:54 And the day was a preparation, and sabbath was approaching, 23:55 and the women also who have come with him out of Galilee having followed after, beheld the tomb, and how his body was placed, 23:56 and having turned back, they made ready spices and ointments, and on the sabbath, indeed, they rested, according to the command.
