Luke 23

CHAPTER 23

Jesus Led unto Pilate

And having risen up, all the multitude of them led him unto Pilate. And they began to charge him saying, This one we find perverting the nation, and preventing [3to Caesar 1tribute 2to be given], saying himself [2Christ 3the king 1to be]. And Pilate asked him, saying, Are you the king of the Jews? And answering to him he said, You say it. And Pilate said to the chief priests and the multitudes, Not one [2do I find 1fault] in this man. And they grew more urgent and violent, saying that, He incites the people, teaching throughout entire Judea, beginning from Galilee unto here. And Pilate having heard Galilee, asked if the man is a Galilean.

Pilate Sends Jesus to Herod

And having realized that [2under 3the 4authority 5of Herod 1he is], he sent him to Herod, [2being 3also 1he] in Jerusalem in these days. And Herod beholding Jesus, rejoiced exceedingly, for he was wanting for a fit time to behold him, because of the hearing many things concerning him; and he hoped [2any 3sign 1to behold] by him taking place. And he asked him with [2of words 1a fit amount]; but he [3nothing 1answered 2to him]. 10 And standing by were the chief priests and the scribes, intensely charging him. 11 [5having treated 7with contempt 1And 6him 2Herod 3with 4his military], and having mocked him, having put around him [2attire 1bright], sent him back to Pilate. 12 And they became friends, both Pilate and Herod, in this day with one another; for beforehand [2at 3enmity 1they were being] between themselves. 13 And Pilate, having called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, 14 said to them, You brought to me this man as perverting the people. And behold, I before you having questioned him, [2nothing 1find] in this man for a fault of which to lay charge against him, 15 and not even Herod; for I sent you to him; and behold, nothing worthy of death is being acted by him. 16 Correcting him then, I will release him. 17 (And by necessity he had to release to them each holiday one person). 18 But they shouted aloud all at once, saying, Take this one, but release to us Barabbas; 19 who was on account of a certain insurrection having taken place in the city, and for murder, thrown into prison. 20 Then again, Pilate called out to them, wanting to release Jesus.

The Jews Ask to Crucify Jesus

21 But they were sounding out, saying, Crucify! Crucify him! 22 And the third time he said to them, For what evil did this one do? No fault for death do I find in him; correcting him then I will release him. 23 And they pressed [2voices 1with great], asking for him to be crucified. And [3prevailed 2voices 1their] and of the chief priests. 24  And Pilate adjudged [2to take place 1their request]. 25 And he released to them the one through insurrection and murder being thrown into the prison, whom they asked for; but Jesus he delivered up to their will. 26 And as they led him away, having taken hold of Simon, a certain Cyrenian, coming from the field, they placed upon him the cross, to bear it behind Jesus. 27 And were following him a great multitude of the people, and women, which also were beating their chest and wailing over him. 28 And having turned to them, Jesus said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me! furthermore, [2for 3yourselves 1weep], and for your children! 29 For behold, there come days in which they shall say, Blessed are the sterile, and bellies which bore not, and breasts which nursed not. 30 Then they shall begin to say to the mountains, Fall upon us! And to the hills, Cover us! 31 For if in the wet wood these things they do, [3in 4the 5dry 1what 2should happen]?

The Crucifixion of Jesus

32 And they led also other two evildoers with him to be done away with. 33 And when they went forth unto the place being called Skull, there they crucified him, and the evildoers, one on the right, and one on the left. 34 And Jesus said, O Father, forgive them! for they do not know what they do. And dividing his garments they cast a lot. 35 And [3stood 1the 2people] viewing. And deriding also were the rulers with them, saying, Others he delivered, let him deliver himself! if this is the Christ, the one chosen of God. 36 [5mocked 1And 6at him 4also 2the 3soldiers], coming forward and [2vinegar 1bringing] to him, 37 and saying, If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself! 38 And there was also an inscription being depicted above him in letters in Greek, and Roman, and Hebrew -- This is the king of the Jews.

The Penitent Evildoer

39 And one of the hanging evildoers blasphemed him, saying, If you are the Christ, save yourself and us! 40 And responding the other reproached him, saying, Not even do you fear God, for [2under 3the 4same 5judgment 1you are]? 41 And we indeed justly; for worthy of what we acted, we receive; but this one did not [2out of place 1act]. 42 And he said to Jesus, Remember me, O Lord, whenever you should come in to your kingdom. 43 And [2said 3to him 1Jesus], Amen I say to you, Today with me you will be in paradise.

Jesus Expires

44 And it was about [2hour 1the sixth], and darkness came upon the entire land until [2hour 1the ninth]. 45 And [3was darkened 1the 2sun], and [5was split 1the 2veil 3of the 4temple] in the middle. 46 And calling out [2voice 1with a great], Jesus said, Father, into your hands I place my spirit. And these things having said he expired. 47 [4beholding 1And 2the 3centurion] the thing taking place, glorified God, saying, Really, this man was righteous. 48 And all the [2coming together 1multitudes] upon this sight, viewing the things having taken place, were beating themselves on the breast returning. 49 [6stood 1And 2all 3the ones 4who knew 5him] afar off, even the women following him from Galilee, seeing these things.

The Burial of Jesus

50 And behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counselor, being [2man 1a good] and just, 51 (this one was not assenting together with the counsel and their action) from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, who even was waiting also himself the kingdom of God. 52 This one came forward to Pilate to ask the body of Jesus. 53 And having lowered it, he swathed it in fine linen, and he put it in a tomb of dressed stone, of which was not yet any one being laid. 54 And [3day 1it was 2preparation], and Sabbath evening coming on. 55 But following closely after also were women, (the ones who were gathered together to him from out of Galilee,) for seeing the sepulchre, and how [2was placed 1his body]. 56 And having returned, they prepared aromatics and perfumed liquids; and on the Sabbath they were tranquil according to the commandment.
