saying, “I sinned; I ·handed over to you [betrayed] ·an innocent man [L innocent blood].” The leaders answered, “What ·is that to us [do we care]? That’s your ·problem, not ours [responsibility; concern].”
Then Judas, who had betrayed him, saw that he was condemned and in his remorse returned the thirty silver coins to the chief priests and elders, with the words, “I was wrong—I have betrayed an innocent man to death.” “And what has that got to do with us?” they replied. “That’s your affair.”
Judas, the one who betrayed him, realized that Jesus was doomed. Overcome with remorse, he gave back the thirty silver coins to the high priests, saying, “I’ve sinned. I’ve betrayed an innocent man.” They said, “What do we care? That’s your problem!”
Judas Iscariot:I can’t keep this money! I’ve sinned! I’ve betrayed an innocent man! His blood will be on my hands. Chief Priests and Elders:We’re through with you, friend. The state of your soul is really none of our affair.
