Jesus brought before Pilate. 69 And a maid saw him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them, 70 And he denied it again; , And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely thou art one of them : for thou art a Galilean, u and thy speech agreeth thereto. 71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak. 72 And the second time the cock Crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And 1 when he thought thereon, he wept.'v CHAffff: XV. 1 Jesus brought bound and accused before Pilate, 15 is delivered to be crucified: 17 he is crowned with thorns, 27 hanged between two thieves, 43 and is honourably buried. A? D straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation a with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate. 2 And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he, answering, said unto him, Thou sayest it.

3 And the chief priests accused f

him of many things: but he answered nothing. 4 And Pilate asked him again, say; Answerest thou nothing Behold how many things they witness against thee. 5. But Jesus b yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled. 6 Now c at that feast he released unto them one poisoner, whomsoever they desired. 7 And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection. 8 And the multitude, crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them. 9 But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews? * 10 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.d 11 But the chief priests moved the ople, that he should rather reease e Barabbas unto them. e 12 And Pilate answered, and said again unto them, What will ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye call the Kingf of the Jews? 13 #. they cried out again, Cru

He is insulted and crucified. And they cried out the more ex ceedingly, Crucify him. 15 T And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified. 16 And the h soldiers led him away into the hall called Pretorium; and they call together the whole band. 17 And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head; 18 And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews | 19 And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spitt upon him, and, bowing their knees, worshipped him. 20 And when they had mocked k him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify

CI’OSS. 22 And they l bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull. 3 And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh : but he received it not. 24 And when they had crucified him, they parted m his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take. 25 And it was the third hour; and they crucified him. e 26 And the superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS. 27 And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left. And the scripture n was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors. 29 And theyo that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou p that destroyest i. temple, and buildest it in three ayS, 30 Save thyself, and come down from the cross. e 31 Likewise also the chief priests, mocking, said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save. 32 Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see, q and believe, And they that were crucified with reviled him. 33 Andr when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.

The centurion's confession.

34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, s Eloi, lama sabachthani which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me ! t 35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias. 36 And one ran and filled a sponge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave u him to drink, saying, Let alone : let us see whether Elias will come to take him down. 37 And v Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. 38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain, from the top to the bottom. o 39 of And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God. 40 There were also women looking on afarw off; among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome; 41 (Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered a unto him;) and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem. 42 of And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the Sabbath, 43 Joseph of Arimathea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited y for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus. 44 And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead; and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while

12 And when Zacharias saw him he was troubled, n and fear fell upon him. i8 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias : for thy prayer is heard ; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt cali his name John. 0 14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice p at his birth. 15 For he shall be great q in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink r

he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even S from his mother's womb. 16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. 17 And he t shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient 1 to the wisdom u of the just; to make ; a people v prepared for the

Or(1. 18 And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this for I w am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years. 19 And the angel, answering, said unto him, I am Gabriel, a that stand in the presence of God; and am sent y to speak unto thee, and to show thee these glad tidings. 20 And, behold, , thou shalt be dumb, 2 and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest hot my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season. 21 And the people waited for Zacharias, and marvelled that he tarried so long in the temple. 22 And when he came out, he could not speak unto them : and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple; for he beckoned unto them, and remained speechless.


The prophecy of 23 And it came to pass, that, as Soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house. 24 And after those days, his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herSelf five months, saying 25 Thus hati, the ford dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take a away my reproach among Imen. 26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God, unto fi §§ of Galilee, named Nazareth, 27 To a virgin b espoused to a man whose nāme was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. 28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thout that grf 2 highly favoured, c the Lord d is with thee : blessed art thou among WOIIl Bil. 29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. 30 And the angel said unto her. Fear not, Mary; for thou hast found favour with God. 31 And, behold, thou e shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a Son, and shalt call his name ESU.S.

32 He shall be great, f and shall be called the Song of the Highest : and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne h of his father Da

Vid: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. 34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? 35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee; therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called k the Son of God. 36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age : and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren. 37 For l with God nothing shall be

impossible. 38 And Mary said, Behold the Lord; be it unto

handmaid m of the me according n to thy word. the angel departed from her. 39 And Mary arose, in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a 0 city of Juda; 40 And entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. 41 And it came to pass, that, when

Elisabeth, and of Mary.

Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: 42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed p art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord q should come to me? 44 For lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation, sounded in mine ; the babe leaped in my womb or Joy. 45 And blessed is she 8 that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. 46 And Mary said, My r soul doth magnify the Lord, 47 And my spirit hath rejoiced s in God my Saviour. 48 For he hath regarded the low t estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me w blessed. 49 For he that is mighty v hath done to me great things; 10 and holy z is his name. 50 And y, his mercy is on them that fear him, from generation to generation. 51.

And his mother answered and i. Not so; but he shall be called Osłll. .61 And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name.

63 And he asked for a writing-table, and wrote, saying, His name is a John. And they marvelled all. 64 And his mouth h was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God. And fear came on all that dwelt round about them : and al these 4 sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judea: 66, And all they that heard them laid them up i in their hearts, saying, What manner of child' shall this be And the hand k of the Lord was with him. 67 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying, 68 Blessed l be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, 69 And hath raised up an horn of Salvation m for us, in the house of his servant David; 70 And as he spaken by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began : 71 That we should be saved o from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us; 72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to p remember his holy covenant, 73 The oath q which he sware to our father Abraham, 74 That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies, might serve him r without fear, 75.
