Jesus Is Mocked

27 c  Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the d  governor’s headquarters
Greek  the praetorium
and they gathered the whole f  battalion
Greek cohort; a tenth of a Roman legion, usually about 600 men
before him.
28And they stripped him and put h  a scarlet robe on him, 29and twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on his head and put a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him, they i  mocked him, saying, “Hail j  King of the Jews!” 30And k  they spit on him and took the reed and struck him on the head. 31And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the robe and put his own clothes on him and l  led him away to crucify him.
