John 19


The Crown of Thorns

Then therefore Pilate took Jesus and whipped him. And the soldiers, having plaited a crown of thorns, placed it upon his head, and a cloak of purple they put around him. And they said, Hail, the king of the Jews! And they gave him slaps. [2came forth 3then 4again 5outside 1Pilate], and says to them, See! I bring him to you outside, that you should know that in him not one fault I find. [2then came forth 1Jesus] outside, wearing the thorny crown, and the purple cloak. And he says to them, Behold the man!

The Jews Ask to Crucify Jesus

When then [6beheld 7him 1the 2chief priests 3and 4the 5officers], they cried out saying, Crucify, crucify him! [2says 3to them 1Pilate], Take him yourselves, and crucify! for I find no [2in 3him 1fault]. [3answered 4him 1The 2Jews], We [2a law 1have], and according to our law he ought to die, for [2himself 3a son 4of God 1he made]. Then when Pilate heard this word, more he feared. And he entered into the praetorium again, and says to Jesus, From what place are you? But Jesus [2an answer 1gave not] to him. 10 Then says Pilate to him, To me you speak not? Do you not know that [2authority 1I have] to crucify you, and [2authority 1I have] to release you? 11 Jesus answered, You do not have authority in anything against me, except what was given to you from above. On account of this, the one delivering me up to you [2the greater 3sin 1has]. 12 From this Pilate sought to release him. But the Jews cried out, saying, If this one you should release, you are not a friend of Caesar. Every one [2king 1making himself], speaks against Caesar. 13  Then Pilate hearing this word, brought Jesus outside; and he sat upon the rostrum in the place being called Lithostratus, but in Hebrew Gabbatha. 14 And it was preparation of the passover, [4hour 1and 2about 3the sixth]; and he says to the Jews, Behold your king! 15  And they cried out, Take him, take him! Crucify him! [2says 3to them 1Pilate], [2your king 1Shall I crucify]? [3answered 1The 2chief priests], We have no king except Caesar. 16 Then therefore he delivered him up to them that he should be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him.

The Crucifixion

17 And bearing his cross, he came forth unto the [2being called 3of the Skull 1place], which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha; 18 where they crucified him, and with him [2others 1two], one here on this side and one here on that side, [3in the middle 1and 2Jesus]. 19 [3wrote 1And 4also 5a title 2Pilate], and put it upon the cross. And was written, Jesus the Nazarene the King of the Jews. 20 This [2then 1title] many [3read 1of the 2Jews], for [3was near 1the 2place] the city where Jesus was crucified; and it was written in Hebrew, in Greek, in Roman. 21 [6said 1then 7to Pilate 2the 3chief priests 4of the 5Jews], Write not, The King of the Jews! but that, That one said, I am king of the Jews. 22 Pilate answered, What I have written, I have written.

The Soldiers Cast Lots

23 Then the soldiers when they crucified Jesus, took his garments, (and they made four parts, to each soldier a part), and the inner garment; [4was 1but 2the 3inner garment] seamless, from the top woven through entire. 24 They said then to one another, We should not split it, but obtain by lot for it, whose it shall be; that the scripture should be fulfilled, the one saying, They divided into parts my garments among themselves, and over my clothes they cast a lot. Then indeed the soldiers did these things. 25 And stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and the sister of his mother, Mary the one of Klopas, and Mary the Magdalene. 26 Jesus then seeing his mother, and the disciple standing by whom he loved, says to his mother, O woman, Behold your son. 27 Then he says to the disciple, Behold, your mother. And from that hour [3took 4her 1the 2disciple] for his own.

Jesus Delivers Up His Spirit

28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things already have been finished, that [3should be perfected 1the 2scripture], says, I thirst. 29 A utensil then was situated [2of vinegar 1full]; and the ones having filled a sponge with vinegar, and [2hyssop 1putting on], brought it near his mouth. 30 When therefore [2took 3the 4vinegar 1Jesus], he said, It has been finished; and having leaned the head, he delivered up the spirit. 31 Then the Jews (that [3should not 4remain 5upon 6the 7cross 1the 2bodies] during the Sabbath, since it was preparation, [3was 1for 4a great 5day 2that] of the Sabbath) asked Pilate that [3should be broken 1their 2legs], and they should be taken away. 32 Then came the soldiers. And the first one they broke the legs, and the other being crucified along with him. 33 [3unto 1But 4Jesus 2having come], when they saw him already having died, they did not break his legs. 34 But one of the soldiers with a lance [2his 3side 1pierced], and immediately came forth blood and water. 35 And the one seeing bears witness, and [4true 3is 2testimony 1his]; and that one knows that [2true 1he speaks], that you should believe. 36 [3took place 1For 2these things], that the scripture should be fulfilled, Not a bone of his shall be broken. 37 And again another scripture says, They shall look on whom they pierced.

The Burial of Jesus

38 And after these things [4asked 5Pilate 1Joseph 2of 3Arimathea] (being a disciple of Jesus, but being hidden for the fear of the Jews) that he should take the body of Jesus; and Pilate committed it to his care. Then he came, and took the body of Jesus. 39 And came also Nicodemus (the one coming to Jesus by night at first) bearing a mixture of myrrh and aloe, about [2liters 1a hundred]. 40 They then took the body of Jesus, and tied it with small pieces of cloth with the aromatics, as is custom with the Jews to embalm. 41 [3was 1And 4in 5the 6place 7where 8he was crucified 2a garden], and in the garden [2sepulchre 1a new], in which not yet was anyone placed. 42 There then (because of the preparation of the Jews, for [3was near 1the 2sepulchre]) they placed Jesus.
