John 19

1Jesus is scourged, crowned with thorns, mocked, and buffeted by the soldiers. 4Pilate declareth his innocence: the Jews charge him with assuming the title of the Son of God. 8Pilate upon further examination is more desirous to release him, but overcome with the clamours of the Jews delivereth him to be crucified. 17He is led to Golgotha, and crucified between two malefactors. 19Pilate's inscription on his cross. 23The soldiers part his garments. 25He commendeth his mother to John; 28receiveth vinegar to drink, and dieth. 31The legs of the others are broken, and the side of Jesus pierced. 38Joseph of Arimathaea beggeth his body, and assisted by Nicodemus burieth it.

1 Then 1Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.

2 And the soldiers platted 1a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him 2a purple robe,

3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.

4 Pilate therefore 1went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that 2I 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 1When 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, 1We 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, 1he was the more afraid;

9 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? 1But Jesus gave him no answer.

10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? 1knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?

11 Jesus answered, 1Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were 2given thee from above: therefore 3he that delivered me unto thee hath the 4greater sin.

12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, 1If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.

131When Pilate therefore heard that saying, 2he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.

14 And it was 1the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!

15 1But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, 2We have no king but Caesar.

16 1Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.

17 And he 1bearing his cross went 2forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:

18 1Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

191And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.

20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and 1it 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 King of the Jews.

22 Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.

231Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was 2without seam, awoven from the top throughout.

24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, 1They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

251Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of aCleophas, and Mary Magdalene.

26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, 1whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, 2Woman, behold thy son!

27 Then saith he to the disciple, 1Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his 2own home.

28 ¶ After this, Jesus knowing 1that all things were now accomplished, 2that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

29 1Now 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 mouth.

30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, 1It is finished: and 2he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

31 The Jews therefore, because it was the 1preparation, 2that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an 3high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.

32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.

33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:

34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out 1blood and water.

35 1And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, 2that ye might believe.

36 For these things were done, 1that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.

37 And again another scripture saith, 1They shall look on him whom they pierced.

381And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but 2secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.

39 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus 1by night, and brought 2a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred 3pound weight.

40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in 1linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.

41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a 1garden; and in the garden 2a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.

42 1There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.
