and they gathered the whole fbattalion

28And they stripped him and put ha 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 imocked him, saying, “Hail, jKing of the Jews!” 30And kthey 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 lled him away to crucify him.
