39 and when he was at the place, he said to them, Pray ye, that ye may not enter into temptation. 40 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, 41 saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me; nevertheless, not my will, but thine, be done! 42 and when he rose up from prayer, and came to his disciples, he found them sleeping from sorrow; 43 and he said to them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, that ye may not enter into temptation. 44 While he was yet speaking, behold a multitude; and he who was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near to Jesus to kiss him : 45 and Jesus said to him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss? 46 and they that were about him, seeing what would follow, said to him, Lord, shall we strike with the sword 2 47 and one of them struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear: 48 and Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far; and he touched his ear, and healed him. 49 And Jesus said to the chief priests, and captains of the

temple, and elders, who were come to him, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves 2 50 when I was with you daily in the temple, ye stretched not out your hands against me: but, this is your hour, and the power of darkness: 51 and they took him, and led him away, and brought him to the house of the high priest: and Peter followed at a distance. 52 And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the court, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them: 53 and a maid, seeing him sitting by the fire, and fixing her eyes on him, said, This man also was with him : 54 and he denied, saying, Woman, I know him not : 55 and after a little while, another saw him, and said, Thou also art one of them : and Peter said, Man, I am not : 56 and about one hour after, another insisted, saying, Of a truth this man also was with him ; for he is a Galilean : 57 and Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest: and immediately, while he was yet speaking, the cock crew: 58 and the Lord turned, and looked at Peter: 59 and Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said to him, Before the cock crow this day, thou wilt deny me thrice; and he went out, and wept bitterly. 60 And the men that held Jesus, mocked him, and smote him: 61 and they blindfolded him, and struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Tell which it is that struck thee ? 62 and many other things they said blasphemously to him. 63 And when it was day, the elders of the people, and chief priests, and scribes, assembled together, and brought him into the council, saying, Tell us if thou art the Christ? 64 and he said to them, If I tell you, ye will not believe; and if I also ask you anything, ye will not answer me: 65 but, from this time, the Son of man will be seated on the right hand of the power of God: 66 and they all said, Art thou then the Son of God? and he said to them, Ye say that I am : 67 and they said, What further need have we of testimony? for we ourselves have heard it from his own mouth.

2 and they began to accuse him, saying, We [found this man perverting our nation, and forbidding us to render tribute to Cesar; and saying, that he himself is Christ, a King: 3 and Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? and he answered him and said, Thou sayest. 4 Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no guilt in this man: 5 and they were the more earnest, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee, even to this place. 6 When Pilate heard this, he inquired if the man were a Galilean 2 7 and when he knew that he belonged to Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at that time in Jerusalem : 8 and when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceedingly glad ; for he had been for a long time desirous to see him, because he had heard of him; and hoped to see some miracle done by him : 9 and he questioned him, with many words; but he answered him nothing: 10 and the chief priests and scribes stood by, and vehemently accused him: 11 and Herod, with his soldiers, set him at nought; and mocking him, arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him back to Pilate: 12 and Herod and Pilate were made friends that day: for before, they were at enmity between themselves. 13 And Pilate, calling together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, 14 said to them, Ye have brought this man to me, as one who perverteth the people: and, behold, I have examined him before you, and have found in this man no guilt of the things of which ye accuse him: 15 nor yet Herod; for he hath sent him back to you, and, lo, nothing worthy of death hath been done by him: 16 I will therefore chastise him, and release him : 17 and they all cried out, saying, Away with this man / and release to us Barabbas ; (who for a certain insurrection made in the city, and for murder, had been cast into prison.) 18 Then Pilate, wishing to release Jesus, spake to them again; 19 but they cried out, saying, Crucify him! crucify him! 20 and he said to them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done 2 I have found no guilt of death in him : I will therefore chastise him, and release him :

21 and they were urgent, with loud voices, requiring that he should be crucified: 22 and their voices prevailed; and Pilate gave sentence, that it should be done as they required; 23 and he released to them him whom they desired, who for sedition and murder had been cast into prison; but he delivered up Jesus to their will. 24 And as they led him away, they seized on one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and laid on him the cross, that he should bear it after Jesus: 25 and a great number of the people followed him ; also of women, who bewailed and lamented him ; 26 but Jesus turning to these, said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children: 27 for behold, the days are coming, in which they will say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps that never gave suck: 28 then will they begin to say to the mountains, “Fall “on us; and to the hills, Cover “us:” 29 for, if they do these things in a green tree, what will befall

30 And two others, who were malefactors, were also led with him to be put to death. 31 And when they were come to the place called Kranion, that is, Skull, they there crucified him, and the malefactors, one on his right hand, and the other on his left: 32 and they divided his garments among them, casting lots for them: and the people stood by looking on. 33 But the rulers derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he is the Christ, the chosen of God: 34 and the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar; 35 and saying, If thou art the king of the Jews, save thyself. 36 And an inscription was over him; This Is THE KING of THE JEws. 37 And one of the malefactors which were hanged, railed on him, saying, If thou art the Christ, save thyself and us: 38 but the other answering, rebuked him, saying, Dost thou not fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 39 and we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this man hath done nothing amiss: 40 and he said to Jesus, Remember me, when thou goest to thy kingdom :

was a just man 46 and all the multitudes that came together to that sight, when they had seen the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned: 47 but all his acquaintance, and the women that had followed him from Galilee, stood beholding these things afar off. 48 And, behold, a man named Joseph, who was a counsellor; a good and just man, 49 who had not consented to their counsel and deed; of Arimathea, a city of the Judeans; who himself also was expecting the kingdom of God: 50 this man went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus: 51 and he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre hewn in a

AND on the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they went to the sepulchre, carrying the spices which they had prepared; 2 and they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre: 3 but when they entered, they found not the body of the Lord Jesus: 4 and it came to pass, while they were perplexed thereat, that, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments; 5 and as they were terrified, and bent down their faces to the ground; they said to them, Why seek ye the living among the dead 2 6 he is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake to you, while he was yet in Galilee;

7 saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and on the third day rise again; 8 and they remembered his words: 9 and returning from the sepulchre, they told all these things to the eleven, and to all the rest: 10 Mary the Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and the other women with them, were they who told these things to the apostles: 11 and those words seemed to them as an idle tale, and they believed them not; 12 but Peter arose, and ran to the sepulchre; and stooping down, beheld the linen clothes only ; and he went away, wondering in himself what had come to pass. 13 And, behold, two of them were going that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was distant from Jerusalem about sixty furlongs; 14 and they talked together of all these things that had happened : 15 and it came to pass, while they were talking and reasoning together, that Jesus himself drew near them, and went on with them; but their eyes were withheld from knowing him: 16 and he said to them, What are these discourses that ye
