Matthew 27:23-25 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

23 And he said, “Why? What wrong has he done?” But they began to shout[a] even louder, saying, “Let him be crucified!”

24 So Pilate, when he[b] saw that he was accomplishing nothing, but instead an uproar was developing, took water and[c] washed his[d] hands before the crowd, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of this man. You see to it!”[e] 25 And all the people answered and[f] said, “His blood be on us and on our children!”

Matthew 27:23-25 New International Version (NIV)

23 “Why? What crime has he committed?” asked Pilate.

But they shouted all the louder, “Crucify him!”

24 When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. “I am innocent of this man’s blood,” he said. “It is your responsibility!”

25 All the people answered, “His blood is on us and on our children!”
