Matthew 27

Christ is delivered bound to Pilate.

Matthew 27:1 When the morning was come, all the chiefe Priests, and the elders of the people tooke counsell against Iesus, to put him to death, Matthew 27:2 And led him away bounde, and deliuered him vnto Pontius Pilate the gouernour.

Judas hangeth himself.

Matthew 27:3 Then when Iudas which betraied him, sawe that hee was condemned, hee repented himselfe, and brought againe the thirtie pieces of siluer to the chiefe Priestes, and Elders, Matthew 27:4 Saying, I haue sinned, betraying the innocent bloud. But they sayde, What is that to vs? see thou to it. Matthew 27:5 And when hee had cast downe the siluer pieces in the Temple, hee departed, and went, and hanged himselfe. Matthew 27:6 And the chiefe Priestes tooke the siluer pieces, and sayde, It is not lawfull for vs to put them into the treasure, because it is the price of bloud. Matthew 27:7 And they tooke counsell, and bought with them a potters fielde, for the buriall of strangers. Matthew 27:8 Wherefore that field is called, The field of bloud, vntill this day. Matthew 27:9 (Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Ieremias the Prophet, saying, And they tooke thirtie siluer pieces, ye price of him that was valued, whom they of ye children of Israel valued. Matthew 27:10 And they gaue them for the potters fielde, as the Lord appointed me.) Matthew 27:11 And Iesus stood before ye gouernour, and the gouernour asked him, saying, Art thou that King of the Iewes? Iesus said vnto him, Thou sayest it. Matthew 27:12 And when he was accused of the chiefe Priestes, and Elders, he answered nothing. Matthew 27:13 Then saide Pilate vnto him, Hearest thou not howe many things they lay against thee? Matthew 27:14 But he answered him not to one worde, in so much that the gouernour marueiled greatly. Matthew 27:15 Nowe at the feast, the gouernour was wont to deliuer vnto the people a prisoner whom they would. Matthew 27:16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas. Matthew 27:17 When they were then gathered together, Pilate said vnto the, Whether will ye that I let loose vnto you Barabbas, or Iesus which is called Christ? Matthew 27:18 (For he knewe well, that for enuie they had deliuered him.

Pilate, admonished of his wife,

Matthew 27:19 Also when he was set downe vpon the iudgement seate, his wife sent to him, saying, Haue thou nothing to do with that iust man: for I haue suffered many things this day in a dreame by reason of him.) Matthew 27:20 But the chiefe Priestes and the Elders had persuaded the people that they shoulde aske Barabbas, and should destroy Iesus. Matthew 27:21 Then the gouernour answered, and said vnto them, Whether of the twaine will ye that I let loose vnto you? And they said, Barabbas. Matthew 27:22 Pilate said vnto them, What shal I do then with Iesus, which is called Christ? They all said to him, Let him be crucified. Matthew 27:23 Then saide the gouernour, But what euill hath he done? Then they cryed the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

washeth his hands:

Matthew 27:24 When Pilate saw that he auailed nothing, but that more tumult was made, he tooke water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this iust man: looke you to it. Matthew 27:25 Then answered all the people, and saide, His bloud be on vs, and on our children.

and looseth Barabbas.

Matthew 27:26 Thus let he Barabbas loose vnto them, and scourged Iesus, and deliuered him to be crucified. Matthew 27:27 Then the souldiers of the gouernour tooke Iesus into the common hall, and gathered about him the whole band, Matthew 27:28 And they stripped him, and put about him a skarlet robe,

Christ is crowned with thorns,

Matthew 27:29 And platted a crowne of thornes, and put it vpon his head, and a reede in his right hand, and bowed their knees before him, and mocked him, saying, God saue thee King of the Iewes, Matthew 27:30 And spitted vpon him, and tooke a reede, and smote him on the head. Matthew 27:31 Thus when they had mocked him, they tooke the robe from him, and put his owne rayment on him, and led him away to crucifie him. Matthew 27:32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, named Simon: him they compelled to beare his crosse. Matthew 27:33 And when they came vnto the place called Golgotha, (that is to say, the place of dead mens skulles)


Matthew 27:34 They gaue him vineger to drinke, mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drinke. Matthew 27:35 And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, and did cast lottes, that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken by the Prophet, They deuided my garments among them, and vpon my vesture did cast lottes. Matthew 27:36 And they sate, and watched him there. Matthew 27:37 They set vp also ouer his head his cause written, THIS IS IESVS THE KING OF THE IEWES. Matthew 27:38 And there were two theeues crucified with him, one on the right hand, & another on the left.

Matthew 27:39 And they that passed by, reuiled him, wagging their heades,


Matthew 27:40 And saying, Thou that destroyest ye Temple, & buildest it in three dayes, saue thy selfe: if thou be ye Sonne of God, come downe fro ye crosse. Matthew 27:41 Likewise also the hie Priests mocking him, with the Scribes, and Elders, and Pharises, said, Matthew 27:42 He saued others, but he cannot saue him selfe: if he be ye King of Israel, let him now come downe from ye crosse, and we will beleeue in him. Matthew 27:43 He trusted in God, let him deliuer him nowe, if he will haue him: for he saide, I am the Sonne of God. Matthew 27:44 The selfe same thing also ye theeues which were crucified with him, cast in his teeth. Matthew 27:45 Now from ye sixt houre was there darkenesse ouer all the land, vnto the ninth houre. Matthew 27:46 And about ye ninth houre Iesus cryed with a loud voyce, saying, Eli, Eli, lamasabachthani? Yt is, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Matthew 27:47 And some of them that stoode there, when they heard it, said, This man calleth Elias. Matthew 27:48 And straightway one of them ran, & tooke a spondge, and filled it with vineger, and put it on a reede, and gaue him to drinke. Matthew 27:49 Other said, Let be: let vs see, if Elias wil come and saue him.

dieth, and is buried:

Matthew 27:50 Then Iesus cryed againe with a loude voyce, and yeelded vp the ghost. Matthew 27:51 And behold, the vayle of the Temple was rent in twaine, from the top to the bottome, and the earth did quake, & the stones were cloue. Matthew 27:52 And the graues did open themselues, and many bodies of the Saintes, which slept, arose, Matthew 27:53 And came out of the graues after his resurrection, and went into the holy citie, and appeared vnto many. Matthew 27:54 When the Centurion, and they that were with him watching Iesus, saw the earthquake, and the thinges that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truely this was the Sonne of God. Matthew 27:55 And many women were there, beholding him a farre off, which had folowed Iesus from Galile, ministring vnto him. Matthew 27:56 Among whom was Marie Magdalene, and Marie the mother of Iames, & Ioses, and the mother of Zebedeus sonnes. Matthew 27:57 And when the euen was come, there came a riche man of Arimathea, named Ioseph, who had also himselfe bene Iesus disciple. Matthew 27:58 He went to Pilate, & asked ye body of Iesus. Then Pilate commanded ye body to be deliuered. Matthew 27:59 So Ioseph tooke the body, and wrapped it in a cleane linnen cloth, Matthew 27:60 And put it in his new tombe, which he had hewen out in a rocke, and rolled a great stone to the doore of the sepulchre, and departed. Matthew 27:61 And there was Marie Magdalene, and the other Marie sitting ouer against the sepulchre.

Matthew 27:62 Nowe the next day that followed the Preparation of the Sabbath, the hie Priestes and Pharises assembled to Pilate, Matthew 27:63 And said, Syr, we remember that that deceiuer saide, while he was yet aliue, Within three dayes I will rise. Matthew 27:64 Command therefore, that the sepulchre be made sure vntill the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steale him away, and say vnto the people, He is risen from the dead: so shall the last errour be worse then the first. Matthew 27:65 Then Pilate saide vnto them, Ye haue a watch: goe, and make it sure as ye knowe.

his sepulchre is sealed, and watched.

Matthew 27:66 And they went, and made the sepulchre sure with the watch, and sealed the stone.
