And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.
Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered [him] to be crucified.
Then answered all the people, and said, His blood [be] on us, and on our children.
When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but [that] rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed [his] hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye [to it].
And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? [They] all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.
But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.
When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.
Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?
And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
Now at [that] feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.
And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly.
Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?
And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.
And [so] Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged [him], to be crucified.
