Matthew 27:22-31New American Standard Bible (NASB)
22 Pilate *said to them, “Then what shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?” They all *said, “[a]Crucify Him!”23 And he said, “Why, what evil has He done?” But they kept shouting all the more, saying, “[b]Crucify Him!”
24 When Pilate saw that he was accomplishing nothing, but rather that a riot was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd, saying, “I am innocent of this Man’s blood; see to that yourselves.”25 And all the people said, “His blood shall be on us and on our children!”26 Then he released Barabbas [c]for them; but after having Jesus scourged, he handed Him over to be crucified.
Jesus Is Mocked
27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the [d]Praetorium and gathered the whole Roman[e]cohort around Him.28 They stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him.29 And after twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a [f]reed in His right hand; and they knelt down before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”30 They spat on Him, and took the reed and began to beat Him on the head.31 After they had mocked Him, they took the scarlet robe off Him and put His own garments back on Him, and led Him away to crucify Him.
