Young's Literal Translation

John 19

Christ is scourged, crowned with thorns, and beaten.

John 19:1 Then, therefore, did Pilate take Jesus and scourge [him], John 19:2 and the soldiers having plaited a crown of thorns, did place [it] on his head, and a purple garment they put around him, John 19:3 and said, 'Hail! the king of the Jews;' and they were giving him slaps.

Pilate is desirous to release him, but being overcome with the outrage of the Jews, he delivered him to be crucified.

John 19:4 Pilate, therefore, again went forth without, and saith to them, 'Lo, I do bring him to you without, that ye may know that in him I find no fault;' John 19:5 Jesus, therefore, came forth without, bearing the thorny crown and the purple garment; and he saith to them, 'Lo, the man!' John 19:6 When, therefore, the chief priests and the officers did see him, they cried out, saying, 'Crucify, crucify;' Pilate saith to them, 'Take ye him—ye, and crucify; for I find no fault in him;' John 19:7 the Jews answered him, 'We have a law, and according to our law he ought to die, for he made himself Son of God.'

John 19:8 When, therefore, Pilate heard this word, he was the more afraid, John 19:9 and entered again to the praetorium, and saith to Jesus, 'Whence art thou?' and Jesus gave him no answer. John 19:10 Pilate, therefore, saith to him, 'To me dost thou not speak? hast thou not known that I have authority to crucify thee, and I have authority to release thee?' John 19:11 Jesus answered, 'Thou wouldest have no authority against me, if it were not having been given thee from above; because of this, he who is delivering me up to thee hath greater sin.' John 19:12 From this [time] was Pilate seeking to release him, and the Jews were crying out, saying, 'If this one thou mayest release, thou art not a friend of Caesar; every one making himself a king, doth speak against Caesar.'

John 19:13 Pilate, therefore, having heard this word, brought Jesus without—and he sat down upon the tribunal—to a place called, 'Pavement,' and in Hebrew, Gabbatha; John 19:14 and it was the preparation of the passover, and as it were the sixth hour, and he saith to the Jews, 'Lo, your king!' John 19:15 and they cried out, 'Take away, take away, crucify him;' Pilate saith to them, 'Your king shall I crucify?' the chief priests answered, 'We have no king except Caesar.' John 19:16 Then, therefore, he delivered him up to them, that he may be crucified, and they took Jesus and led [him] away, John 19:17 and bearing his cross, he went forth to the place called [Place] of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew Golgotha; John 19:18 where they crucified him, and with him two others, on this side, and on that side, and Jesus in the midst.

John 19:19 And Pilate also wrote a title, and put [it] on the cross, and it was written, 'Jesus the Nazarene, the king of the Jews;' John 19:20 this title, therefore, read many of the Jews, because the place was nigh to the city where Jesus was crucified, and it was having been written in Hebrew, in Greek, in Roman. John 19:21 The chief priests of the Jews said, therefore, to Pilate, 'Write not—The king of the Jews, but that one said, I am king of the Jews;' John 19:22 Pilate answered, 'What I have written, I have written.'

They cast lots for his garments.

John 19:23 The soldiers, therefore, when they did crucify Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to each soldier a part, also the coat, and the coat was seamless, from the top woven throughout, John 19:24 they said, therefore, to one another, 'We may not rend it, but cast a lot for it, whose it shall be;' that the Writing might be fulfilled, that is saying, 'They divided my garments to themselves, and upon my raiment they did cast a lot;' the soldiers, therefore, indeed, did these things.

John 19:25 And there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary of Cleopas, and Mary the Magdalene;

He commendeth his mother to John.

John 19:26 Jesus, therefore, having seen [his] mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he was loving, he saith to his mother, 'Woman, lo, thy son;' John 19:27 afterward he saith to the disciple, 'Lo, thy mother;' and from that hour the disciple took her to his own [home].

He dieth.

John 19:28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things now have been finished, that the Writing may be fulfilled, saith, 'I thirst;' John 19:29 a vessel, therefore, was placed full of vinegar, and they having filled a sponge with vinegar, and having put [it] around a hyssop stalk, did put [it] to his mouth; John 19:30 when, therefore, Jesus received the vinegar, he said, 'It hath been finished;' and having bowed the head, gave up the spirit.

His side is pierced.

John 19:31 The Jews, therefore, that the bodies might not remain on the cross on the sabbath, since it was the preparation, (for that sabbath day was a great one,) asked of Pilate that their legs may be broken, and they taken away. John 19:32 The soldiers, therefore, came, and of the first indeed they did break the legs, and of the other who was crucified with him, John 19:33 and having come to Jesus, when they saw him already having been dead, they did not break his legs; John 19:34 but one of the soldiers with a spear did pierce his side, and immediately there came forth blood and water; John 19:35 and he who hath seen hath testified, and his testimony is true, and that one hath known that true things he speaketh, that ye also may believe. John 19:36 For these things came to pass, that the Writing may be fulfilled, 'A bone of him shall not be broken;' John 19:37 and again another Writing saith, 'They shall look to him whom they did pierce.'

He is buried by Joseph and Nicodemus.

John 19:38 And after these things did Joseph of Arimathea—being a disciple of Jesus, but concealed, through the fear of the Jews—ask of Pilate, that he may take away the body of Jesus, and Pilate gave leave; he came, therefore, and took away the body of Jesus, John 19:39 and Nicodemus also came—who came unto Jesus by night at the first—bearing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, as it were, a hundred pounds. John 19:40 They took, therefore, the body of Jesus, and bound it with linen clothes with the spices, according as it was the custom of the Jews to prepare for burial; John 19:41 and there was in the place where he was crucified a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one was yet laid; John 19:42 there, therefore, because of the preparation of the Jews, because the tomb was nigh, they laid Jesus.
