Luke 23 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
23 1 He is accuseth before Pilate. 7 He is sent to Herod. 11 He is mocked. 24 Pilate yieldeth him up to the Jews’ request. 27 The women bewail him. 33 He is crucified. 39 One of the thieves revileth him. 43 The other is saved by faith. 45 He dieth. 53 He is buried.
1 Then [a]the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate.
2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We have found this man [b]perverting the nation, and forbidding to pay tribute to Caesar, saying, That he is Christ a King.
3 And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him, and said, Thou sayest it.
4 Then said Pilate to the high Priests, and to the people, I find no fault in this man.
5 But they were the more fierce, saying, He moveth the people, teaching throughout all Judea, beginning at Galilee, even to this place.
6 [c]Now when Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilean.
7 And when he knew that he was of [d]Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, which was also at Jerusalem in those days.
8 And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceedingly glad: for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him, and trusteth to have seen some sign done by him.
9 Then questioned he with him of many things: but he answered him nothing.
10 The high Priests also and Scribes stood forth and accused him vehemently.
11 And Herod with his [e]men of war, despised him, and mocked him, and arrayed him in white, and sent him again to Pilate.
12 [f]And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were enemies one to another.
14 And said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverted the people: and behold, I have examined him before you, and have found no fault in this man, of those things whereof ye accuse him:
15 No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him: and lo, nothing worthy of death is done of him.
16 [i]I will therefore chastise him, and let him loose.
17 (For of necessity he must have let one loose unto them at the feast.)
18 Then all the multitude cried at once, saying, Away with him, and deliver unto us Barabbas:
19 Which for a certain insurrection made in the city, and murder, was cast in prison.
20 Then Pilate spake again to them, willing to let Jesus loose.
21 But they cried, saying, Crucify, crucify him.
22 [j]And he said unto them the third time, But what evil hath he done? I find no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him loose.
23 But they were instant with loud voices, and required that he might be crucified: and the voices of them and of the high Priests prevailed.
24 So Pilate gave sentence, that it should be as they required.
25 And he let loose unto them him that for insurrection and murder was cast into prison, whom they desired, and delivered Jesus to do with him what they would.
26 ¶ [k]And as they led him away, they caught one Simon of Cyrene, coming out of the field, and on him they laid the cross, to bear it after Jesus.
27 [l]And there followed him a great multitude of people, and of women, which women bewailed and lamented him.
28 But Jesus turned back unto them, and said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.
29 For behold, the days will come, when men shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.
30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us: and to the hills, Cover us.
31 For if they do these things to a [m]green tree, what shall be done to the dry?
32 And there were two others, which were evildoers, led with him to be slain.
33 [n]And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the evildoers: one at the right hand, and the other at the left.
34 [o]Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them: for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
35 And the people stood, and beheld: and the rulers mocked him with them, saying, He saved others: let him save himself, if he be that Christ the [p]Chosen of God.
36 The soldiers also mocked him, and came and offered him vinegar,
37 And said, If thou be the King of the Jews, save thyself.
38 [q]And a superscription was also written over him, in Greek letters, and in Latin, and in Hebrew, THIS IS THAT KING OF THE JEWS.
40 But the other answered, and rebuked him, saying, Fearest thou not God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
41 We are indeed righteously here: for we receive things worthy of that we have done: but this man hath done nothing [t]amiss.
42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me, when thou comest into thy kingdom.
43 Then Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, today shalt thou be with me in [u]Paradise.
44 ¶ [v]And it was about the sixth hour: and there was a darkness over all the land, until the ninth hour.
45 [w]And the Sun was darkened, and the veil of the Temple rent through the midst.
46 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and said, Father, into thine hands I commend my spirit. And when he thus had said, he gave up the ghost.
47 ¶ [x]Now when the Centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Of a surety this man was just.
48 And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done: smote their breasts, and returned.
49 [y]And all his acquaintances stood afar off, and the women that followed him from Galilee, beholding these things.
50 ¶ [z]And behold, there was a man named Joseph, which was a counselor, a good man and a just.
51 He did not consent to the counsel and deed of them, which was of Arimathea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God.
52 He went unto Pilate, and asked the body of Jesus,
53 And took it down, and wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid it in a tomb hewn out of a rock, wherein was never man yet laid.
54 And that day was the preparation, and the Sabbath [aa]drew on.
55 [ab]And the women also that followed after, which came with him from Galilee, beheld the sepulcher, and how his body was laid.
56 And they returned and prepared odors, and ointments, and resteth the Sabbath day according to the commandment.
