Mark 15 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

15 And at once in the morrowtide the high priests made a counsel with the elder men, and the scribes, and with all the council, and bound Jesus and led, and betook him to Pilate. [And anon the morrow made, the highest priests, making counsel with the elder men, and scribes, and all the council, binding Jesus, led and betook to Pilate.]

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

And the high priests accused him in many things. [And the highest priests accused him in many things.]

But Pilate again asked him, and said [saying], Answerest thou nothing? Seest thou in how many things they accuse thee?

But Jesus answered no more [Forsooth Jesus more nothing answered], so that Pilate wondered.

But by the feast day he was wont to let go to them to them one of the men bound, whomever they asked.[a]

And there was one that was said Barabbas, that was bound with men of dissension, that had done manslaughter in sedition [that had done manslaying in dissension].

And when the people was gone up, he began to pray, as he evermore did to them. [And when the company had ascended, he began to pray, as he ever did to them.]

And Pilate answered to them, and said, Will ye that I let go to you the king of Jews?[b]

10 For he knew, that the high priests had taken him by envy. [Forsooth he knew that the highest priests had betaken him by envy.]

11 But the bishops stirred the people, that he should rather let go to them Barabbas.[c]

12 And again Pilate answered, and said to them, What then will ye that I shall do to the king of Jews?

13 And they again cried, Crucify him [Crucify him, that is, Put him on the cross].

14 But Pilate said to them, [Soothly] What evil hath he done? And they cried the more, Crucify him.

15 And Pilate, willing to make satisfaction to the people, let go to them Barabbas, and he betook to them Jesus, beaten with scourges[d], to be crucified.

16 And knights led him withinforth, into the porch of the moot hall. And they called together all the company of knights,

17 and they clothed him with purple. And they wreathed a crown of thorns, and put on him [And they folding a crown of thorns, put on him].

18 And they began to greet him, and said [And began to greet him, saying], Hail, king of Jews.

19 And they smote his head with a reed, and bespat him; and they kneeled, and worshipped him.[e]

20 And after that they had scorned him, they unclothed him of the purple [they unclothed him from purple], and clothed him with his clothes, and led out him, to crucify him.

21 And they compelled a man that passed by the way, that came from the town, Simon of Cyrene, the father of Alexander and of Rufus, to bear his cross. [And they constrained some man passing forth, Simon of Cyrene, coming from the town, the father of Alexander and Rufus, that he should take his cross.]

22 And they led him into a place Golgatha, that is to say, the place of Calvary. [And they led him into the place of Golgatha, that is interpreted, the place of Calvary.]

23 And they gave to him to drink wine mixed with myrrh [And they gave him to drink wine meddled with myrrh], and he took not.

24 And they crucified him, and parted his clothes, and cast lot on those[f], who should take what.

25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.

26 And the title of his cause was written, King of Jews.

27 And they crucify with him two thieves, one at the right half and one at his left half.[g]

28 And the scripture was fulfilled that saith, And he is ordained [And he is areckoned] with wicked men.

29 And as they passed forth, they blasphemed him, moving their heads, and saying, Vath! [Fie!] thou that destroyest the temple of God, and in three days buildest it again;

30 come adown from the cross, and make thyself safe.

31 Also the high priests scorned him each to other with the scribes, and said, He hath made other men safe, he may not save himself.[h]

32 Christ, [the] king of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we see, and believe. And they that were crucified with him, despised him [And they that were crucified with him, put wrong, or false reproof, to him].

33 And when the sixth hour was come, darknesses were made on [upon] all the earth till into the ninth hour[i].

34 And in the ninth hour Jesus cried with a great voice, and said [saying], Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani, that is to say [the which is interpreted], My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

35 And some of the men that stood about heard, and said, Lo! he calleth Elias.

36 And one ran, and filled a sponge with vinegar, and putted about to a reed, and gave him to drink, and said [saying], Suffer ye, see we, if Elias come to do him down.

37 And Jesus gave out a great cry, and died.[j]

38 And the veil of the temple was rent atwo from the highest to beneath. [And the veil of the temple was cut into twain from the highest, till to down, or beneath.]

39 But the centurion that stood over against saw, that he so crying had died, and he said, Verily, this man was God's Son [and said, Verily, this man was the Son of God].

40 And there were also women beholding from afar, among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary, the mother of James the less, and of Joseph, and of Salome [among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary, the mother of James the less, and Joseph, and Salome].

41 And when Jesus was in Galilee, they followed him, and ministered to him, and many other women, that came up together with him to Jerusalem [and many other women, which had ascended together with him to Jerusalem].

42 And when the eventide was come, for it was the eventide that is before the sabbath,[k]

43 Joseph of Arimathaea, the noble decurion, came, and he abode the realm of God [Joseph of Arimathaea, a noble decurion, came, which also he was abiding the realm of God]; and boldly he entered [in] to Pilate, and asked the body of Jesus.

44 But Pilate wondered, if he were now dead [Forsooth Pilate wondered, if he had now died]. And when the centurion was called, he asked him, if he were [now] dead;

45 and when he knew of the centurion, he granted the body of Jesus to Joseph [he gave the body of Jesus to Joseph].

46 And Joseph bought linen cloth, and took him down, and wrapped [him] in the linen cloth, and laid him in a sepulchre that was hewn of a stone [Soothly Joseph buying sendal, or linen cloth, and doing him down, wrapped him in the linen cloth, and put him in a new sepulchre that was hewn in a stone], and wallowed a stone to the door of the sepulchre.

47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary of Joseph beheld, where he was laid.

Mark 15 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

The passion of Christ. Of his death and burial.

15 And early in the dawning, the high priests consulted with the elders and the scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus and led him away, and delivered him to Pilate.

And Pilate asked him, Are you the king of the Jews? And he answered and said to him, It is as you say. And the high priests accused him of many things. So Pilate asked him again, saying, Do you answer nothing? Look how many things they lay to your charge. But Jesus still answered never a word, so that Pilate marvelled.

At that feast it was Pilate’s custom to release to the people, at their pleasure, a prisoner – whomever they desired. And there was one named Barabbas, who lay bound with those who had made insurrection, and in the insurrection had committed murder. And the people called to Pilate and began to ask that he do as usual for them. Pilate answered them and said, Do you want me to release to you the king of the Jews? 10 For he knew that the high priests had delivered him out of envy. 11 But the high priests had moved the people to have Barabbas released to them instead.

12 And Pilate answered again and said to them, What will you have me do then with him whom you call the king of the Jews? 13 And they cried again, Crucify him! 14 Pilate said to them, What evil has he done? And they cried the more fervently, Crucify him!

15 And so Pilate, choosing to appease the people, released Barabbas to them, and delivered Jesus, when had scourged him, to be crucified.

16 And the soldiers led him away into the common hall, and called together the whole company. 17 And they clothed him with purple, and they plaited a crown of thorns and crowned him with it, 18 and began to pay mock homage to him: Hail, King of the Jews! 19 And they struck him on the head with a reed, and spat upon him, and kneeled down and worshipped him.

20 And when they had mocked him, they took the purple off him and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him. 21 And they compelled a man who was passing by, called Simon of Cyrene (who was coming out of the field, and was the father of Alexander and Rufus), to bear his cross. 22 And they brought him to a place named Golgotha (which translated is, the place of dead men’s skulls). 23 And they offered him wine mingled with myrrh to drink, but he would not receive it.

24 And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots for them, what every man should have. 25 And it was about the third hour, and they crucified him. 26 And the notice of his accusation was written: the king of the jews. 27 And they crucified with him two thieves, one on the right hand and the other on his left. 28 And the scripture was fulfilled which says, He was counted among the wicked.

29 And people who were going by railed on him, wagging their heads and saying, Ah, wretch, who destroys the temple and builds it in three days! 30 Save yourself, and come down from the cross!

31 Likewise also the high priests mocked him among themselves with the scribes, and said, He saved other men; himself he cannot save. 32 Let Christ the King of Israel now descend from the cross, so that we may see and believe.

And those who were crucified with him reviled him also.

33 And when the sixth hour was come, darkness arose over all the earth until the ninth hour. 34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, if it be translated, My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

35 And some of the people who were standing by, when they heard that, said, Look, he is calling for Elijah. 36 And one ran and filled a sponge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed and gave him to drink, saying, Let him alone. Let’s see if Elijah will come and take him down.

37 But Jesus cried out with a loud voice and gave up the spirit. 38 And the veil of the temple did tear in two pieces, from the top to the bottom. 39 And when the centurion who stood before Jesus saw that he so cried out and gave up the spirit, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.

40 There were also women a good way off beholding him, among whom were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James the Little and of Joses, and Mary Salome, 41 who also, when he was in Galilee, had followed him and ministered to him, and many other women who had come up with him to Jerusalem.

42 And now when night was come (because it was the Preparation, the day before the Sabbath), 43 Joseph of Arimathea came, a noble councillor, who also looked for the kingdom of God. He went in bravely to Pilate and requested the body of Jesus. 44 And Pilate marvelled that he was already dead, and called for the centurion, and asked him if Jesus was already dead. 45 And when he knew the truth from the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.

46 And Joseph bought a linen cloth, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen cloth, and laid him in a tomb that was hewn out of the rock, and rolled a stone to the opening of the sepulchre. 47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary Joses saw where he was laid.

Mark 15 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

15 1 Of the things Christ suffered under Pilate. 11 Barabbas is preferred before Christ. 15 Pilate delivereth Christ to be crucified. 17 He is crowned with thorns. 19 They spit on him, and mock him. 21 Simon of Cyrene carrieth Christ’s cross. 27 Christ is crucified between two thieves. 26 He is railed at. 37 He giveth up the ghost. 43 Joseph burieth him.

And [a]anon in the dawning, the high Priests held a Council with the Elders, and the Scribes, and the whole Council, and bound Jesus, and led him away, and [b]delivered him to Pilate.

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

And the high Priests accused him of many things.

Wherefore Pilate asked him again, saying, Answered thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee.

But Jesus answered no more at all, so that Pilate marveled.

Now at the feast, Pilate [c]did deliver a prisoner unto them, whomsoever they would desire.

Then there was one named Barabbas, which was bound with his fellows, that had made insurrection, who in the insurrection had committed murder.

And the people cried aloud, and began to desire that he would do as he had ever done unto them.

Then Pilate answered them, and said, Will ye that I let loose unto you the King of the Jews?

10 For he knew that the high Priests had delivered him of envy.

11 But the high Priests had moved the people to desire that he would rather deliver Barabbas unto them.

12 And Pilate answered, and said again unto them, What will ye then that I do with him, whom ye call the King of the Jews?

13 And they cried again, Crucify him.

14 Then Pilate said unto them, But what evil hath he done? And they cried the more fervently, Crucify him.

15 So Pilate willing to content the people, loosed them Barabbas, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, that he might be crucified.

16 Then the soldiers led him away into the hall, which is the common hall, and called together the whole band,

17 [d]And clad him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head,

18 And began to salute him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews.

19 And they smote him on the head with a reed, and spat upon him, and bowed the knees, and did him reverence.

20 And when they had mocked him, they took the purple off him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him.

21 And they [e]compelled one that passed by, called Simon of Cyrene (which came out of the country, and was father of Alexander and Rufus) to bear his cross.

22 [f]And they brought him to a place named Golgotha, which is by interpretation, the place of dead mens’ skulls.

23 And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.

24 [g]And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots for them, what every man should have.

25 And it was the third hour when they crucified him.

26 And the title of his cause was written above, THAT KING OF THE JEWS.

27 They crucified also with him two thieves, the one on the right hand, and the other on his left.

28 Thus the Scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was counted among the wicked.

29 And they that went by, railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Hey, thou that destroyest the Temple, and buildest it in three days,

30 Save thyself, and come down from the cross.

31 Likewise also even the high Priests mocking, said among themselves with the Scribes, He saved other men, himself he cannot save.

32 Let Christ the king of Israel now come down from the cross, that we may see, and believe. They also that were crucified with him, reviled him.

33 ¶ Now when the sixth hour was come, [h]darkness arose over [i]all the land until the ninth hour.

34 And at the [j]ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama-sabachthani? which is by interpretation, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elijah.

36 And one ran, and filled a sponge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let him alone: let us see if Elijah will come, and take him down.

37 And 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.

39 Now when the Centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he thus crying gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.

40 [k]There were also women which beheld afar off, among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less, and of Joses, and Salome,

41 Which also when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered unto him, and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.

42 And now when the night was come (because it was the day of the preparation that is before the Sabbath)

43 Joseph of Arimathea, an [l]honorable counselor, which also looked for the kingdom of God, came, and went in [m]boldly unto Pilate, and asked the body of Jesus.

44 And Pilate marveled, if he were already dead, and called unto him the Centurion, and asked of him whether he had been any while dead.

45 And when he knew the truth of the Centurion, he gave the body to Joseph:

46 Who bought a linen cloth, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen cloth, and laid him in a tomb that was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulcher:

47 And Mary Magdalene, and Mary Joses’ mother, beheld where he should be laid.

  1. Mark 15:1 Christ being bound before the judgment seat of an earthly judge, in open assembly is condemned as guilty unto the death of the cross, not for his own sins, (as appeareth by the judge’s own words) but for all ours, that we most guilty creatures being delivered from the guiltiness of our sins, might be quitted before the judgment seat of God, even in the open assembly of the Angels.
  2. Mark 15:1 It was not lawful for them to put any man to death, for all causes of life and death were taken away from them, first by Herod the great, and afterward by the Romans, about forty years before the destruction of the Temple, and therefore they deliver Jesus to Pilate.

  4.

  5. Mark 15:21 The rage of the wicked hath no measure, but in the mean season, even the weakness of Christ, being in pain under the heavy burden of the cross, doth manifestly show that a lamb is led to be sacrificed.

  7. Mark 15:24 Christ hangeth naked upon the cross, and as the most wickedest caitiff that ever was, most vilely reproved: that we being clothed with his righteousness, and blessed with his curses, and sanctified by his only oblation, may be taken up into heaven.

  10. Mark 15:34 Christ striving mightily with Satan, with sin, and with death, all three armed with the horrible curse of God, grievously tormented in body hanging upon the cross, and in soul plunged in the depth of hell, yet he riddeth himself, crying with a mighty voice: and notwithstanding the wound which he received of death in that that he died, yet by smiting both things above and things beneath, by renting of the veil of the Temple, and by the testimony wrung out of them which murdered him, he showeth evidently unto the rest of his enemies which are as yet obstinate, and mock at him, that he shall be known out of hand to be conqueror and Lord of all.

Mark 15 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

15 And straightway in the morning the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him to Pilate. And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering said unto him, Thou sayest it. And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing. And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee. But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled.

Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired. And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection. And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them. 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. 11 But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them. 12 And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews? 13 And they cried out again, Crucify him. 14 Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him. 15 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 soldiers led him away into the hall, called Prætorium; 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 spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him. 20 And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him. 21 And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.

22 And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull. 23 And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not. 24 And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take. 25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him. 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. 28 And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.

29 And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, 30 save thyself, and come down from the cross. 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 and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.

33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. 34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? 35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias. 36 And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come to take him down. 37 And 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. 39 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 afar 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 unto him;) and many other women which came up with him unto Jerusalem.

42 And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath, 43 Joseph of Arimathæa, an honourable counsellor, which also waited 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 dead. 45 And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph. 46 And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre. 47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.
