and they called together the whole ebattalion.

17And they clothed him in ga purple cloak, and twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on him. 18And they began to salute him, hHail, King of the Jews!” 19And they were striking his head with a reed and ispitting on him and jkneeling down in homage to him. 20And when they had kmocked him, they stripped him of lthe purple cloak and put his own clothes on him. And they mled him out to crucify him.
