(A)And Pilate asked him, (B)“Are you the King of the Jews?” And he answered him, (C)“You have said so.” And the chief priests accused him of many things. And Pilate again asked him, (D)“Have you no answer to make? See how many charges they bring against you.” But Jesus (E)made no further answer, so that Pilate was amazed.
