Luke 23 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

23 And all the multitude of them arose, and led him to Pilate.

And they began to accuse him, and said [saying], We have found this [man] turning upside-down our folk, and forbidding tribute to be given to the emperor [and forbidding tribute to be given to Caesar], and saying that himself is Christ a king.

And Pilate asked him, and said [saying], Art thou king of Jews? And he answered, and said, Thou sayest.

And Pilate said to the princes of priests, and to the people, I find nothing of cause in this man.

And they waxed stronger, and said [saying], He moveth the people, teaching through all Judaea, beginning from Galilee till hither [beginning from Galilee to hither].

And Pilate hearing Galilee asked, if he were a man of Galilee.

And when he knew that he was of the power of Herod, he sent him to Herod; which was at Jerusalem in those days. [And as he knew that he was of the power of Herod, he sent him again to Herod; the which and he was at Jerusalem in those days.]

And when Herod saw Jesus, he joyed full much; for long time he coveted to see him, for he heard many things of him, and hoped to see some token done of him [for he was coveting of much time to see him, for he heard many things of him, and hoped to see some miracle be done of him].

And he asked him in many words; and he answered nothing to him.

10 And the princes of priests and the scribes stood, steadfastly accusing him.

11 But Herod with his host despised him, and scorned him, and clothed him with a white cloak [with a white cloth], and sent him again to Pilate.

12 And Herod and Pilate were made friends from that day [And Herod and Pilate were made friends in that day]; for before they were enemies together.

13 And Pilate called together the princes of priests and the magistrates of the people,

14 and said to them, Ye have brought to me this man, as turning away the people, and lo! I asking before you find no cause in this man of these things, in which ye accuse him;

15 neither Herod, for he hath sent him again to us [but neither Herod, for I again sent you to him], and lo! nothing worthy of death is done to him.

16 And therefore I shall amend him, and deliver him.[a]

17 But he must needs deliver to them one by the feast day. [Forsooth he had need to dismiss, or deliver, to them one by the feast day.]

18 And all the people cried together, and said, Do him away, and deliver to us Barabbas; [Soothly all the company cried, saying, Do him away, and deliver to us Barabbas;]

19 which was sent into prison for disturbing made in the city, and for manslaying. [the which was sent into prison for some sedition, or disturbing, made in the city, and for manslaying.]

20 And again Pilate spake to them, and would deliver Jesus. [Forsooth again Pilate spake to them, willing to deliver Jesus.]

21 And they cried out, and said [And they under-cried, saying], Crucify, crucify him.

22 And the third time he said to them, For what evil hath he done [Soothly what of evil hath he done]? I find no cause of death in him; therefore I shall chastise him, and shall deliver him [and I shall deliver].

23 And they continued with great voices asking [And they continued asking with great voices], that he should be crucified; and the voices of them waxed strong.

24 And Pilate deemed their asking to be done.

25 And he delivered to them him, that for manslaying and sedition was sent into prison, whom they asked; but he betook Jesus to their will.

26 And when they led him, they took a man, Simon of Cyrene, coming from the town, and they laid on him the cross to bear after Jesus.

27 And there followed him much people [Soothly there followed him much company of people], and [of] women that bewailed, and bemourned him.

28 And Jesus turned to them, and said, Daughters of Jerusalem, do not ye weep on me, but weep ye on yourselves and on your sons.

29 For lo! days shall come, in which it shall be said, Blessed be barren women, and [the] wombs that have not born children, and the teats that have not given suck.[b]

30 Then they shall begin to say to mountains, Fall ye down on us, and to small hills, Cover ye us.

31 For if in a green tree they do these things [For if they do these things in a green tree], what shall be done in a dry?

32 Also [and] other two wicked men were led with him, to be slain.

33 And when they came into a place, that is called of Calvary[c], there they crucified him, and the thieves, one on the right half, and the other on the left half.

34 But Jesus said, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. And they parted his clothes, and cast lots [Forsooth they parting his clothes, sent lots].

35 And the people stood abiding; and the princes scorned him with them, and said, Other men he made safe; make he himself safe, if this be Christ, the chosen of God. [And the people stood abiding; and the princes scorned him with them, saying, Other men he made safe; make he himself safe, if he is Christ, the chosen of God.]

36 And the knights approached, and scorned him, and proffered vinegar to him, [Forsooth and knights coming nigh scorned him, and offered vinegar to him,]

37 and said [saying], If thou art king of Jews, make thee safe.

38 And the superscription was written over him with Greek letters [with letters of Greek], and of Latin, and of Hebrew, This is the king of Jews.

39 And one of these thieves that hanged, blasphemed him, and said [Forsooth one of those thieves that hanged, blasphemed him, saying], If thou art Christ, make thyself safe and us.

40 But the other answering, blamed him, and said, Neither thou dreadest God, [thou] that art in the same condemnation? [Soothly the tother answering, blamed him, saying, Neither thou dreadest God, thou that art in the same damnation?]

41 And truly we justly, for we have received worthy things to our works; but this did nothing of evil. [And truly we justly, for we have received worthy things to deeds; soothly this hath done no evil.]

42 And he said to Jesus, Lord, have mind of me [Lord, have mind on me], when thou comest into thy kingdom.

43 And Jesus said to him, Truly I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise.

44 And it was almost the sixth hour, and darknesses were made on all the earth into the ninth hour [till the ninth hour].

45 And the sun was made dark, and the veil of the temple was rent atwo [and the veil of the temple was cut the middle].

46 And Jesus crying with a great voice, said, Father, into thine hands I betake my spirit. And he saying these things, gave up the ghost. [And Jesus crying with great voice, saith, Father, into thy hands I betake my spirit. And he saying these things, sent out the spirit, or died.]

47 And the centurion seeing that thing that was done, glorified God, and said [saying], Verily, this man was just.

48 And all the people of them that were there together at this spectacle, and saw those things that were done, smote their breasts, and turned again.

49 But all his known stood afar, and women that followed him from Galilee, seeing these things.

50 And lo! a man, Joseph by name, of Arimathaea, a city of Judaea, that was a decurion, a good man and a just, [And lo! a man, Joseph by name, that was a decurion, or having ten under him, a good man and just,]

51 this man consented not to the counsel and to the deeds of them; and he abode the kingdom of God. [this man consented not to the counsel and deeds of them, of Arimathaea, city of Judaea; the which and he abode the kingdom of God.]

52 This Joseph came to Pilate, and asked the body of Jesus,

53 and took it down, and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and laid him in a grave hewn, in which not yet any man had been laid [in which not yet any man was put].

54 And the day was the even of the holiday, and the sabbath began to shine.[d]

55 And the women following, that came with him from Galilee, saw the grave, and how his body was laid.

56 And they turned again, and made ready sweet smelling spices, and ointments; but in the sabbath they rested, after the commandment.

Luke 23 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Jesus is brought before Pilate and Herod. The women make lamentation for him. He prays for his enemies, forgives the thief upon his right hand, and dies on the cross and is buried.

23 And the whole number of them arose, and led Jesus to Pilate. And they began to accuse him, saying, We have found his fellow upsetting the people, and forbidding to pay tribute to Caesar, saying that he is Christ, a king. And Pilate questioned him, saying, Are you the king of the Jews? He answered him and said, It is as you say.

Then Pilate said to the high priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man. But they were all the more fierce, saying, He stirs up the people, teaching throughout Judea, beginning at Galilee, and even to this place.

When Pilate heard mention of Galilee, he asked whether the man was from Galilee. And as soon as he knew he was of Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who was also at Jerusalem in those days.

And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceedingly glad. He had desired to see him for a long time, because he had heard many things about him, and trusted to see some miracle done by him. Then he questioned him concerning many things, but Jesus answered him not one word. 10 The high priests and scribes stood forth and accused him vehemently. 11 And Herod with his men of war derided him and mocked him, and arrayed him in white, and sent him again to Pilate.

12 And that same day, Pilate and Herod were brought together as friends. For before, they were at variance.

13 And Pilate called together the high priests, the rulers, and the people, 14 and said to them, You have brought this man to me as one who incited uprising among the people. But I have examined him before you, and have found no fault in this man concerning those things you accuse him of. 15 No, nor did Herod; for I sent you all to him, and lo, nothing worthy of death was determined against him. 16 I will therefore chastise him and let him go. 17 (For custom constrained Pilate to release one prisoner to them at that feast.)

18 And all the people cried out at once, saying, Away with him, and release Barabbas to us! 19 (who for insurrection made in the city and for murder had been cast into prison).

20 Pilate spoke again to them, wanting to let Jesus go free. 21 But they shouted, saying, Crucify him! Crucify him!

22 He said to them the third time, What evil has he done? I find no cause of death in him. I will therefore chastise him and release him.

23 But they called with loud voices for him to be crucified.

And the voice of the people and of the high priests prevailed, 24 and Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required, 25 and released to them the one who for insurrection and murder had been cast into prison, whom they desired, and delivered Jesus to do with him what they would. 26 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 And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which women bewailed and lamented him. 28 But Jesus turned back to 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 will say, Happy are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the paps that never gave suck. 30 Then will they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us! and to the hills, Cover us! 31 For if they do this to a green tree, what shall be done to the dry?

32 And there were two evil-doers led with him to be slain. 33 And when they came to the place that is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the evil-doers also, one on the right hand and the other on the left. 34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.

And they divided up his garments and cast lots for them. 35 And the people stood and looked on. And the leaders mocked him with them, saying, He helped other men; let him help himself, if he is Christ, the chosen of God. 36 The soldiers also mocked him, and came and gave him vinegar, 37 and said, If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself. 38 And a superscription was written over him in Greek, in Latin, and Hebrew: this is the king of the jews.

39 And one of the evil-doers who hung there railed on him, saying, If you are the Christ, save yourself and us. 40 But the other answered and rebuked him, saying, Do you not fear God, seeing that you are under the same sentence? 41 We are rightly punished, for we receive according to our deeds, but this man has done nothing amiss. 42 And he said to Jesus, Lord, remember me when you come into your kingdom. 43 And Jesus said to him, Truly I say to you, today you shall be with me in Paradise.

44 And it was about the sixth hour. And there came a darkness over all the land until the ninth hour, 45 and the sun was darkened. And the veil of the temple did tear, right through the middle. 46 And Jesus cried with a great voice and said, Father, into your hands I commit my spirit. And when he had thus spoken, he gave up the spirit.

47 When the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God, saying, Surely this was a just man. 48 And all the people who came together to that sight, beholding the things that were done, smote their breasts and returned home. 49 And all those who knew him, and the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood afar off beholding these things.

50 And there was a man named Joseph, a member of the council, and he was a good man and just. 51 He had not consented to their counsel and deed. He was from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, and he was also waiting for the kingdom of God. 52 He went to Pilate and requested the body of Jesus, 53 and took it down, wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid it in a tomb hewn out in stone, in which no man had ever before been laid. 54 And that day was the day of preparation; and the Sabbath drew on.

55 The women who had come with Jesus from Galilee followed after, and saw the sepulchre and how his body was laid. 56 And they returned and prepared spices and oyntments, but rested on the Sabbath day according to the commandment.

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.

Then [a]the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate.

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.

And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him, and said, Thou sayest it.

Then said Pilate to the high Priests, and to the people, I find no fault in this man.

But they were the more fierce, saying, He moveth the people, teaching throughout all Judea, beginning at Galilee, even to this place.

[c]Now when Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilean.

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.

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.

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.

13 [g]Then Pilate called together the high Priests, and the [h]rulers, and the people,

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.

39 [r]And [s]one of the evildoers, which were hanged, railed on him, saying, If thou be that Christ, save thyself and us.

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.

Luke 23 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

23 And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate. And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Cæsar, saying that he himself is Christ a King. And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said, Thou sayest it. Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man. And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place. When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilæan. And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.

And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him. Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing. 10 And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused him. 11 And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate.

12 And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves.

13 And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, 14 said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching 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 unto him. 16 I will therefore chastise him, and release him. 17 (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.) 18 And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas: 19 (who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.) 20 Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them. 21 But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. 22 And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him go. 23 And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed. 24 And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required. 25 And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will. 26 And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus.

27 And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him. 28 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. 29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they 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 in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

32 And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death. 33 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.

34 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 beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God. 36 And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar, 37 and saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself. 38 And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. 40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. 42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. 46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. 47 Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man. 48 And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned. 49 And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.

50 And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just: 51 (the same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathæa, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God. 52 This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. 53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid. 54 And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on. 55 And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid. 56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
