And Peter said, Man, I am not. 59 And about the space of one hour after, another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this so also was with him ; for he is a Galilean. 60 And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew. 61 And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter.

2 Jesus is accused before Pilate, 7 and sent to Herod: 11 he is mocked, and sent back to Pilate: 25 he is delivered to be crucified, &c.

ND the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate. 2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to ÇeSar, o: hat 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 it. Then said Pilate to the chief priests, and to the people, I find no fault in this man. 5 And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the eople, teaching throughout all ewry, beginning from Galilee to this place. 6 When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilean. 7 And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod's jurisdiction, he sent

Jerusalem at that time. 8 TI And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad : for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him. 9 Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing. 10 And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused him. 11 And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate. 12 || And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves. 13 TI And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests, and the rulers, and the people, 14 Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man, touching those things whereof ye accuse

m ; 15 No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him ; and lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him. 16 I will therefore chastise him, and release him. 17 (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.) 18 And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this

- him to man, and release untous Baraberod, who himself was also at b

aS : 19 (Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.) Żó Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them. 21. But they cried, saying, him, crucify him. 22 And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done of have found no cause of death in him; I will therefore chastise him, and let him

go. 23 And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified: and the voices of them, and of the chief priests prevailed. 24 And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they requir

ed. 25 And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will. 26 And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus. 27 TI And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him. 28 But Jesus turning unto them, said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but wee for yourselves, and for your children. 29 For behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall

say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. 30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. 31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry 32 And there were also two others, malefactors, led with him to be put to death. 33 And when they were come to the place which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors; one on the right hand, and the other on the left. 34 T Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them: for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and castlots. 35 And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God. 36 And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar, 37 And saying, If thou be o King of the Jews, save thySe

38 And a superscription also was written over him, in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING Öf THijFWS. 39 And one of the malefactors, which were hanged, railed on him, saying. If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. 40 But the other answering, rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly; for

wereceive the due reward of our

deeds: but this man hath done. nothing amiss. 42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou. comest into thy kingdom. 43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily, I say unto thee, To-day shalt thou be with me in para dise. 44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 45 And the sun was darkened, and the vail of the temple was rent in the midst. 46 TI And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. 47 Now, when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man. 48 And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts and returned. 49 And all his acquaintance and the women that followe him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things. 50 TI And behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor: and he was a good man, and a just: 51 (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them:) he was of Arimathea, a city of the Jews; who also himself waited for the kingdom of God. ~ 52 This man went unto Pi— late, and begged the body of Jesus. 53 And he took it down, and
