Mark 14:53-65 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

53 And they led Jesus to the highest priest. And all the priests and scribes and elder men came together [And all came together into one, the priests and the scribes and elder men].

54 But Peter followed him afar [till] into the hall of the highest priest. And he sat with the servants, and warmed him(self) at the fire.

55 And the highest priests, and all the council, sought witnessing against Jesus to take him to the death [that they should betake him to death]; but they found not.

56 For many said false witnessing against him, and the witnessings were not suitable [and the witnessings were not covenable].

57 And some rose up, and bare false witnessing against him, and said [saying],

58 For we heard him saying [say], I shall undo this temple made with hands, and after the third day [and by the third day] I shall build another not made with hands.

59 And the witnessing of them was not suitable. [And the witnessing of them was not covenable.]

60 And the highest priest rose up into the middle, and asked Jesus, and said[a], Answerest thou nothing to those things that be put against thee of these [men]?

61 But he was still, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him [Again the highest priest asked him], and said to him, Art thou Christ, the Son of the blessed God?

62 And Jesus said to him, I am; and ye shall see man's Son sitting on the right half of the virtue of God, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

63 And the high priest rent his clothes, and said, What yet desire we witnesses? [Forsooth the highest priest, cutting his clothes, saith, What yet desire we witnesses?]

64 Ye have heard blasphemy. What seemeth to you? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death.

65 And some began to bespit him, and to cover his face, and to smite him with buffets, and to say to him, Declare thou [And some began to spit on him, and to hide his face, and smite him with buffets, and say to him, Prophesy thou]. And the ministers beat him with strokes.

Mark 14:53-65 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

53 And they led Jesus away to the highest priest of all, and to him came all the high priests and the elders and the scribes. 54 And Peter followed him a great way off, right into the palace courtyard of the high priest, and sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.

55 And the high priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus, to put him to death, and found none. 56 Yet many bore false witness against him, but their testimonies did not agree together. 57 And certain men arose and brought false witness against him, saying, 58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands. 59 But their testimonies did not agree together.

60 And the highest priest stood up amongst them and asked Jesus, saying, Do you answer nothing? How is it that these men bear witness against you? 61 And he held his peace and answered nothing. Again the highest priest asked him and said to him, Are you Christ, the Son of the Blessed? 62 And Jesus said, I am; and you will see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power and coming in the clouds of heaven.

63 Then the highest priest tore his clothes and said, Why do we need any further witnesses? 64 You have heard the blasphemy. What do you think?

And they all gave sentence that he was worthy of death. 65 And some began to spit at him, and to cover his face, and to beat him with fists, and to say to him, Prophesy to us! And the servants struck him on the face.

Mark 14:53-65 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

53 So they led Jesus away to the high Priest, and to him came [a]together all the high Priests, and the Elders, and the Scribes.

54 And Peter followed him afar off, even into the hall of the high Priest, and sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.

55 [b]And the high Priests, and all the Council sought for witness against Jesus, to put him to death, but found none.

56 For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together.

57 Then there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying,

58 We heard him say, I will destroy this Temple made with hands, and within three days I will build another, made without hands.

59 But their witness yet agreed not together.

60 Then the high Priest stood up amongst them, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is the matter that these bear witness against thee?

61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high Priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou that Christ the son of the [c]Blessed?

62 And Jesus said, I am he, and ye shall see the Son of man sit at the right hand of the power of God, and come in the clouds of heaven.

63 Then the high Priest rent his clothes, and said, What have we anymore need of witnesses?

64 Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be worthy of death.

65 [d]And some began to spit at him, and to cover his face, and to beat him with fists, and to say unto him, Prophesy. And the sergeants smote him with their rods.

Mark 14:53-65 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

53 And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes. 54 And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.

55 And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none. 56 For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together. 57 And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying, 58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands. 59 But neither so did their witness agree together.

60 And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee? 61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? 62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. 63 Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses? 64 Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death. 65 And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.
