Luke 23

1And having risen, the whole company of them led him to Pilate. 2And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this man perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying himself to be Christ, a king. 3And Pilate questioned him, saying, Are thou the king of the Jews? And having answered him, he said, Thou say. 4And Pilate said to the chief priests and the multitudes, I find nothing guilty in this man. 5But they were emphatic, saying, He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judea, having begun from Galilee as far as here. 6And when Pilate heard Galilee, he questioned if the man is a Galilean. 7And when he perceived that he is from Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who was himself also in Jerusalem in these days. 8Now when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceedingly glad, for he was wanting of a considerable time to see him, because of hearing many things about him, and he hoped to see some sign happening by him. 9And he interrogated him in considerable words, but he answered him nothing. 10And the chief priests and the scholars had stood, vehemently accusing him. 11But Herod having disdained him with his soldiers, and having mocked him, having arraying him in a bright robe, he sent him back to Pilate. 12And both Pilate and Herod became friends with each other on the same day, for they were formerly being at enmity toward themselves. 13And Pilate having called together the chief priests, and the rulers, and the people, 14said to them, Ye brought this man to me as turning away the people. And behold, I, having examined him before you, found nothing guilty in this man of what ye accuse against him. 15But not even Herod, for I sent you back to him, and lo, nothing having been done by him is worthy of death. 16Therefore, having scourged I will release him. 17Now he had need to release one man to them at every feast. 18But they cried out all together, saying, Take away this man, and release to us Barabbas 19(a man who was cast into prison because of a certain insurrection that occurred in the city, and for murder). 20Again therefore Pilate called out wanting to release Jesus, 21but they shouted, saying, Crucify, crucify him. 22And he said to them a third time, For what evil did this man do? I have found nothing guilty of death in him. I will therefore, having scourged, release him. 23But they were relentless with loud voices demanding him to be crucified. And their voices and those of the chief priests prevailed. 24And Pilate decreed their request to happen. 25And he released the man who had been cast into prison because of insurrection and murder, whom they asked for, but he delivered Jesus to their will. 26And when they led him away, having taken hold of a certain Simon, a Cyrenian coming from the countryside, they laid the cross on him to bring behind Jesus. 27And a great multitude of the people followed him, and also of women who bewailed and lamented him. 28But having turning to them, Jesus said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, instead weep for yourselves and for your children. 29Because, behold, the days are coming, during which they will say, Blessed are the barren, and the bellies that gave no birth, and the breasts that did not suckle. 30Then they will begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us, and to the hills, Cover us. 31Because if they do these things in the green tree, what will happen in the dry? 32And two other men, malefactors, were also led with him to be executed. 33And when they came to the place called Skull, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one at the right hand and the other at the left. 34And Jesus said, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing. And dividing his garments, they cast a lot. 35And the people had stood watching. And also the rulers with them sneered, saying, He saved others. He should save himself, if this is the Christ, the chosen of God. 36And the soldiers also mocked him, approaching, and bringing him vinegar, 37and saying, If thou are the king of the Jews, save thyself. 38And there was also an inscription over him written in letters, in Greek and Latin and Hebrew: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS. 39And one of the malefactors who were hanged railed him, saying, If thou are the Christ, save thyself and us. 40But the other man having answered, rebuking him, saying, Thou fear not even God, since thou are in the same condemnation? 41And we indeed justly, for we receive worthy of what we did, but this man did nothing amiss. 42And he said to Jesus, Remember me, Lord, when thou come into thy kingdom. 43And Jesus said to him, Truly I say to thee, today thou will be with me in the paradise. 44And it was about the sixth hour, and darkness occurred over the whole land until the ninth hour. 45And the sun was darkened, and the curtain of the temple was torn in the middle. 46And Jesus, having sounded out in a great voice, said, Father, into thy hands I entrust my spirit. And having said these things, he expired. 47And when the centurion saw that which happened, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this man was righteous. 48And all the multitudes who came together to this scene, watching that which happened, turned back, beating their breasts. 49And all his acquaintances, and the women who accompanied him from Galilee, had stood from afar, seeing these things. 50And behold a man named Joseph, a council member, being a good and righteous man 51(this man not having consented to their purpose and deed), was from Arimathaea, a city of the Jews, who also himself awaited the kingdom of God. 52This man having gone to Pilate, requested the body of Jesus. 53And having taken it down, he wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulcher cut in rock, of which no man was yet lain. 54And the day was Preparation; sabbath was beginning. 55And having followed closely, the women who were gathered to him out of Galilee, they saw the sepulcher, and how his body was laid. 56And having returned, they prepared spices and ointments. And they indeed rested on the sabbath according to the commandment.
