And their verdict was that he deserved to die. Then some of them began to spit at him. They blindfolded him and then slapped him, saying, “Now prophesy who hit you!” Even the servants who took him away slapped his face.
Then some of them began to spit at him, and they blindfolded him and began to hammer his face with their fists. “Who hit you that time, you prophet?” they jeered. And even the bailiffs were using their fists on him as they led him away.
And some began to spit on him and to cover his face and to strike him and to say to him, Let’s hear a dvar nevuah (word of prophecy)! And the shomrim (guards) took custody of him by slapping Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach.
Then they spat on his face and blindfolded him. Others struck him over and over with their fists and taunted him by saying, “Prophesy to us! Tell us which one of us is about to hit you next?” And the guards took him and beat him.
So the people began to humiliate Him. Some even spat upon Him. Then He was blindfolded, and they slapped and punched Him. People:Come on, Prophet, prophesy for us! Tell us who just hit You. Then the guards took Him, beating Him as they did so.
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.
