Jesus is accused before Pilate, and sent to Herod.
Luke 23:1 And one and all the throng of them, arising, led him unto Pilate. Luke 23:2 And they began to accuse him, sayingThis one, found we, perverting our nation, and forbidding to give, tribute unto Caesar,and affirming himself to be, an anointed king. Luke 23:3 And, Pilate, questioned him, sayingArt, thou, the king of the Jews? And, he, answering him, saidThou, sayest. Luke 23:4 And, Pilate, said unto the High-priests and the multitudes, Nothing, find I, worthy of blame, in this man. Luke 23:5 But, they, began to be urgent, sayingHe is stirring up the people, teaching along all Judaea, even beginning from Galilee unto this place. Luke 23:6 Now, Pilate, hearing [that], questioned whether the man was, a Galilaean. Luke 23:7 And, getting to know that he was of the jurisdiction of Herod, he sent him back unto Herod, he also, being in Jerusalem in these days.
Herod mocketh him.
Luke 23:8 And, Herod, seeing Jesus, rejoiced exceedingly; for he had been, a considerable number of times, wishing to see him,because he had heard concerning him, and was hoping, some sign, to behold, by him, brought to pass. Luke 23:9 And he went on to question him in a good many words; but, he, answered him, nothing. Luke 23:10 And the High-priests and the Scribes stood vehemently accusing him. Luke 23:11 And Herod with his soldiery, having set him at nought, and mocked him, threw about him a gorgeous robe, and sent him back unto Pilate.
Herod and Pilate are made friends.
Luke 23:12 And they became friendsboth Herod and Pilateon the self-same day, one with another; for they had previously been at enmity between themselves.
Luke 23:13 And, Pilate, calling together the High-priests, and the Rulers, and the people, Luke 23:14 said unto themYe brought unto me this man, as one turning away the people, and lo! I, in your presence, examining him, found, nothing, in this man worthy of blame, in respect of the things whereof ye were making accusation against him. Luke 23:15 Nay! nor Herod; for he hath sent him back unto you,and lo! nothing worthy of death, hath been done by him. Luke 23:16 So, then, chastising him, I will release him. Luke 23:17 [Absent]
Barabbas is desired of the people, and is loosed by Pilate, and Jesus is given to be crucified.
Luke 23:18 But they cried aloud, with the whole throng, sayingAway with this man! and release unto us Barabbas: Luke 23:19 who indeed, because of a certain revolt which had occurred in the city, and of murder, had been thrown into prison. Luke 23:20 Again, however, Pilate, called out unto them, wishing to release Jesus. Luke 23:21 But, they, called out in return, sayingCrucify! crucify him! Luke 23:22 But, he, the third time, said unto themWhy! what base thing hath this man done? Nothing worthy of death, found I in him. Chastising him, then, I will release him! Luke 23:23 But they became urgent with loud voices, claiming to have him crucified; and their voices began to prevail. Luke 23:24 And, Pilate, consented, that their request should be granted; Luke 23:25 and released him who, for revolt and murder, had been cast into prison, whom they claimed,whereas, Jesus, delivered he up unto their will. Luke 23:26 And, as they led him away, they laid hold of a certain Simon, a Cyrenian, coming from the country,they laid on him the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus.
He telleth the women, that lament him, the destruction of Jerusalem:
Luke 23:27 And there was following him a great throng of the people, and of women, who were smiting themselves and lamenting him. Luke 23:28 But, turning towards them, Jesus saidDaughters of Jerusalem! Do not weep for me; but, for yourselves, be weeping, and for your children. Luke 23:29 For lo! days are coming, in which they will sayHappy the barren! even the wombs that never bare, and the breasts that never gave suck. Luke 23:30 Then, will they begin to sayunto the mountains, Fall upon us! and unto the hills, Cover us! Luke 23:31 Because if, in moist wood, these things, they are doing,in, the dry, what shall happen? Luke 23:32 And there were being led, two other evil-doers also, to be lifted up. Luke 23:33 And, when they came into the place which was called Skull, there, they crucified him; and the evil-doers, one indeed on the right hand, and the other on the left.
prayeth for his enemies.
Luke 23:34 [But, Jesus, was sayingFather! forgive them; for they know not what they do.] And, when they were parting his garments, they cast lots. Luke 23:35 And the people were standing, looking on. But the rulers were sneering, sayingOthers, he saved, let him save himself,if, this, is, the Christ of God, the Chosen. Luke 23:36 Moreover the soldiers also mocked him,coming near, offering, vinegar, unto him, Luke 23:37 and sayingIf, thou, art the King of the Jews, save thyself. Luke 23:38 Now there was an inscription also, over himTHE KING OF THE JEWS, THIS!
Two evildoers are crucified with him.
Luke 23:39 And, one of the suspended evil-doers, began to defame himArt not, thou, the Christ? Save thyself and us! Luke 23:40 But the other, answering, rebuked him, and saidNeither fearest, thou, God, in that thou art, in the same judgment? Luke 23:41 And, we, indeed, justly,for, things worthy of what we have done, are we duly receiving, but, this man, nothing amiss, hath done. Luke 23:42 And he went on to sayJesus! remember me, whensoever thou shalt come into thy kingdom. Luke 23:43 And he said unto himVerily, I say unto thee this day: With me, shalt thou be in Paradise. Luke 23:44 And it was already about the sixth hour, and, darkness, came upon the whole land, until the ninth hour, Luke 23:45 the sun failing; and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
Luke 23:46 And, calling out with a loud voice, Jesus saidFather! into thy hands, I commend my spirit. And, this, saying, he ceased to breathe. Luke 23:47 And the centurion, beholding that which came to pass, began to glorify God, sayingIn very deed, this man, was, righteous. Luke 23:48 And, all the multitudes who had been drawn together unto this spectacle, having looked upon the things that came to pass, smiting their breasts, began to return. Luke 23:49 But all they who were acquainted with him, were standing afar off, women also who had followed with him from Galilee,beholding these things.
Luke 23:50 And lo! a man, by name Joseph, being, a councillor,a good and righteous man Luke 23:51 (the same had not consented unto their plan and deed),from Arimathaea, a city of the Jews, who was awaiting the kingdom of God, Luke 23:52 the same, going unto Pilate, claimed the body of Jesus. Luke 23:53 And, taking it down, he wrapped it in a fine Indian cloth, and laid him in a tomb hewn in stone,where no one as yet was lying. Luke 23:54 And it was a day of preparation, and, a Sabbath, was about to dawn. Luke 23:55 And the women, they who had come out of Galilee with him, following after, observed the tomb, and how his body was laid. Luke 23:56 And, returning, they made ready spices and perfumes. And, on the Sabbath, indeed, they were quiet, according to the commandment;
