7 Then asked he them again, Whom seek
ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.

8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I
am he. If therefore ye seek me, let these go
their way :

9 That the saying might be fulfilled which
he spake, *Of them which thou gavest me,
have I lost none.

10 *"Then Simon Peter, having a sword,
drew it, and smote the high priest's servant,
and cut off his right ear. The servant's
name was Malchus.

11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up
thy sword into the sheath : s the cup which
my Father hath given me, shall I not drink
it?

12 Then the band, and the captain, and
officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound
him,

13 And •'led him away to "Annas first,
(for he was father-in-law to Caiaphas, which
was the high priest that same year.) ||

14 ^Now Caiaphas was he which -gave
counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient
that one man should die for the people.

15 IT 'And Simon Peter followed Jesus,
and so did another disciple. That disciple
was known unto the high priest, and went in
with Jesus, into the palace of the high priest.

16 "But Peter stood at the door without.
Then went out that other disciple which
was known unto the high priest, and spake
unto her that kept the door, and brought
in Peter.

17 Then saith the damsel that kept the
door unto Peter, Art not thou also one of this
man's disciples? He saith, I am not.

18 And the servants and officers stood
there, who had made a fire of coals; (for it
was cold) and they warmed themselves : and
Peter stood with them, and warmed himself.

19 IT The high priest then asked Jesus of
his disciples, and of his doctrine.

20 Jesus answered him, "I spake openly
to the world; I ever taught in the syna-
gogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews
always resort; and in secret have I said
nothing.

21 Why askest thou me ? ask them which
heard me, what I have said unto them: be-
hold, they know what I said.

22 And; when he had thus spoken, one of
the officers which stood by, ° struck Jesus

II with the palm of his hand, saying, An-
swerest thou the high priest so ?

23 Jesus answered him. If I have spoken
evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why
smitest thou me? ,

Christ's arraignment before Pilate.

24 ^pNow Annas had sent him bound unto
Caiapnas the high priest.)

25 And Simon Peter stood and warmed
himself. iThey said therefore unto him. Art
not thou also one of his discipfes? He de-
nied it, and said, I am not.

26 One of the servants of the high priest
(being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off)
saith. Did not I see thee in the garden with
him?

27 Peter then denied again: and 'imme-
diately the cock crew.

28 IF "Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas
unto II the hall of judgment : and it was
early ; ' and they themselves went not into
the judgment-hall, lest they should be de-
filed; but that they might eat the pass-
over.

29 Pilate then went out unto them, and
said, What accusation bring ye against this
man?

30 They answered and said unto him. If
he were not a malefactor, we would not have
delivered him up unto thee.

31 Then said Pilate unto them. Take ye
him, and judge him according to your law.
The Jews therefore said unto him. It is not
lawful for us to put any man to death :

32 "That the saying of Jesus might be
fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what
death he should die.

33 ^Then Pilate entered into the judg-
ment-hall again, and called Jesus, and said
unto him. Art thou the King of the Jews ?

34 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this
thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of
me?

35 Pilate answered. Am I a Jew? Thine
own nation, and the chief priests, have deli-
vered thee unto me. What hast thou done ?

36 y Jesus answered, ^My kingdom is not
of this world : if my kingdom were of this
world, then would my servants fight, that I
should not be delivered to the Jews : but now
is my kingdom not from hence.

37 Pilate therefore said untb him. Art
thou a king then ? Jesus answered. Thou
sayest that I am a king. To this end was I
born, and for this cause came I into the
world, that I should bear witness unto the
truth. Every one that "is of the truth, hear-
eth my voice.

38 Pilate saith unto him. What is truth ?
And when he had said this, he went out again
unto the Jews, and saith unto them, ''I find
in him no fault at all.

39 " But ye have a custom that I should
release unto you one at the passover: will
ye therefore, that I release unto you the King
of the Jews?

903



Christ is crowned with thorns.

40 "J Then cried they all again, saying, Not
this man, but Barabbas. «Now Barabbas was
a robber.

,CHAP. XIX.

1 Christ is scourged, crowned with thorns, and beaten.
4 Pilate is desirous to release him, hut being overcome
with the outrage of the Jews, he delivered him to be
crucified. 23 They cast lots for his garments. 26
He commendeth his mother to John. 28 He dieth. 31
His side is pierced. 38 He is buried by Joseph and
Nicodemus.

THEN =^ Pilate therefore took Jesus, and
scourged him.

2 And the soldiers platted a crown of
thorns, and put it on his head, and they put
on him a purple robe,

3 And said. Hail, King of the Jews ! and
they smote him with their hands.

4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and
saith unto them. Behold, I bring him forth to
you, ''that ye may know that I find no fault
in him.

5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the
crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And
Pilate saith unto them. Behold the man !

6 "When the chief priests therefore and
officers saw him, they cried out, saying. Cru-
cify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them.
Take ye him, and crucify him : for I find no
fault in him.

7 The Jews answered him, ^ We have a
law, and by our law he ought to die, because
^he made himself the Son of God.

8 IT When Pilate therefore heard that
saying, he was the more afraid ;

9 And went again into the judgment-hall,
and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou?
''But Jesus gave him no answer.

10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest
thou not unto me ? knowest thou not, that I
have power to crucify thee, and have power
to release thee ?

11 Jesus answered, sThou couldest have
no power at all against me, except it were
given thee from above : therefore he that
delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.

12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to
release him : but the Jews cried out, saying,
■■If thou let this man go, thou art not Cesar's
friend. 'Whosoever maketh himself a king,
speaketh against Cesar.

13 ITWhen Pilate therefore heard that say-
ing, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down
in the judgment-seat, in a place that is
called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew,
Gabbatha.

14 And •'it was the preparation of the
passover, and about the sixth hour : and he
saith unto the Jews, Behold your King !

15 But they cried out, Away with him,

His crucifixion, and death.

away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith
unto them. Shall I crucify your King? The
chief priests answered, ' We have no king
but Cesar.

16 ""Then delivered he him therefore unto
them to be crucified. And they took Jesus,
and led him away.

17 "And he bearing his cross "went
forth into a place called the place of a skull,
which is called in the Hebrew, Golgotha :

18 Where they crucified him, and two
other with him, on either side one, and Jesua
in the midst.

19 Up And Pilate wrote a title, and put it
on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS
OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE
JEWS.

20 This title then read many of the Jews :
for the place where Jesus was crucified was
nigh to the city : and it was written in He-
brew, and Greek, and Latin.

21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews
to Pilate, Write not. The King of the Jews ;
but that he said, I am King of the Jews.

22 Pilate answered. What I have written,

I have written.

23 U 1 Then the soldiers, when they had
crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made
four parts, to every soldier a part; and also
his coat : now the coat was without seam,

II woven from the top throughout.

24 They said therefore among themselves.
Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it whose
it shall be : that the scripture might be ful-
filled, which saith, "^They parted my raiment
among them, and for my vesture they did
cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers
did.

25 TI^Now there stood by the cross of
Jesus, his mother, and his mother's sister,
Mary the wife of || tCleophas, and Mary
Magdalene.

26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother,
and "the disciple standing by whom he loved,
he saith unto his mother, '^ Woman, behold
thy son!

27 Then saith he to the disciple. Behold
thy mother ! And from that hour that dis-
ciple took her yunto his own home.

28 IT After this, Jesus knowing that all
things were now accompHshed, nhat the
scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

29 Now there was set a vessel full of vine-
gar : and =^they filled a sponge with vinegar,
and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his
mouth.

30 When Jesus therefore had received the
vinegar, he said, ^It is finished: and he
bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

31 The Jews therefore, <= because it was

Christ's side is pieixed.

the preparation, ^that the bodies should not
remain upon the cross on the sabbath-day,
(for that sabbath-day was an high day) be-
sought Pilate that their legs might be broken,
and that they might be taken away.

32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the
legs of the first, and of the other which was

acrucified with him.

33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw
that he was dead already, they brake not his
legs :

34 But one of the soldiers with a spear
pierced his side, and fortlrtvith * came there-
out blood and water.

35 And he that saw it., bare record, and his
record is true : and he knoweth that he saith
true, that ye might beUeve.

36 For these things were done, ''that the
scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him
shall not be broken.

37 And again another scripture saith,
sThey shall look on him whom they pierced.

38 IT h And after this, Joseph of Arimathea
(being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly ' for
fear of the Jews) besought Pilate that he
might take away the body of Jesus : and
Pilate gave Mm leave. He came therefore
and took the body of Jesus.

39 And there came also ^ Nicodemus
(which at the first came to Jesus by night)
and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes,
about an hundred pound weight.

40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and
'wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as
the manner of the Jews is to bury.

41 Now in the place where he was cruci-
fied, there was a garden ; and in the garden a
new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet
laid.

42 ""There laid they Jesus therefore, "be-
cause of the Jews' preparation-<?ay ; for the
sepulchre was nigh at hand.

Peter, and to the ''other disciple whom Jesus
loved, and saith unto them. They have taken

know not where they have laid him.

the sepulchre.

5 And he stooping down, and looking in,
saw ^the linen clothes lying; yet went he
not in.

6 Then cometh Simon Peter following
him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth
the linen clothes lie;

7 And «the napkin that was about his
head, not lying with the linen clothes, but
wrapped together in a place by itself.

8 Then went in also that other disciple
which came first to the sepulchre, and he
saw, and believed.

9 For as yet they knew not the ''scripture,
that he must rise again from the dead.

10 Then the disciples went away again
unto their own home.

11 IsBut Mary stood without at the se-
pulchre weeping : and as she wept she stoop-
ed down and looked into the sepulchre,

12 And seeth two angels in white, sitting,
the one at the head, and the other at the feet,
where the body of Jesus had lain.

13 And they say unto her, Woman, why
weepest thou? She saith unto them. Because
they have taken away my Lord, and I know
not where they have laid him.

14 ""And when she had thus said, she
turned herself back, and saw Jesus standing,
and 'knew not that it was Jesus.

15 Jesus saith unto her. Woman, why
weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She,
supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto
him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell
me where thou hast laid him, and I will take
him away.

16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turn-
ed herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni,
which is to say. Master.

17 Jesus saith unto her. Touch me not :
for I am not yet ascended to my*Father : but
go to ^ my brethren, and say unto them, ' I
ascend unto my Father and your Father,
and to ™my God and your God.

18 "Mary Magdalene came and told the
disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that
he had spoken these things unto her.

19 IT "Then the same day at evening, being
the first day of the week, when the doors
were shut where the disciples were assembled
for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in
the midst, and saith unto them. Peace be
unto you.

20 And when he had so said, he shewed
unto them his hands and his side, p Then were
the disciples glad when they saw the Lord.

21 Then said Jesus to them again. Peace
be unto you: ^as my Father hath sent me,
even so send I you,

The incredulity and confession of Thomas. S. JOHN.

22 And when he had said this, he breathed
on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye
the Holy Ghost.

23 'Whose soever sins ye remit, they are
remitted unto them ; and whose soever sins
ye retain, they are retained.

24 H But Thomas, one of the twelve,
= called Didymus, was not with them when
Jesus came.

25 The other disciples therefore said unto
him. We have seen the Lord. But he said
unto them. Except I shall see in his hands
the print of the nails, and put my finger into
the print of the nails, and thrust my hand
into his side, I will not believe.

26 IT And after eight days again his disci-
ples were within, and Thomas with them :
then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and
stood in the midst, and said. Peace be unto
you.

27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach
hither thy finger, and behold my hands ;
and 'reach hither thy hand, and thrust it
into my side ; and be not faithless, but be-
lieving.

28 And Thomas answered and said unto
him. My Lord and my God.

29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because
thou hast seen me, thou hast believed:
" blessed are they that have not seen, and
yet have believed.

30 IT ''And many other signs truly did
Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which
are not written in this book.

31 y But these are written, that ye might
believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of
God ; ^ and that believing ye might have
life through his name.

CHAP. XXL

1 Christ appearing again to his disciples was known of
them by the 'great draught of fishes. 12 He dineth
with them : \.5 earnestly commandeth Peter to feed his
lambs and sheep : 18 foretelleth him of his death :
22 rebuketh his curiosity touching John. 25 The
conclusion.

AFTER these things Jesus shewed him-
self again to the disciples at the sea of
Tiberias : and on this wise shewed he himself.

2 There were together Simon Peter, and
Thomas called Didymus, and ^Nathanael of
Cana in Galilee, and ''the sons of Zebedee,
and two other of his disciples.

3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go
a fishing. They say unto him. We also go
with thee. They went forth, and entered
mto a ship immediately; and that night they
caught nothing.

4 But when the morning was now come,
Jesus stood on the shore; but the disciples
''knew not that it was Jesus.

Christ appeareth again to his disciples.

5 Then ''Jesus saith unto them, || Chil-
dren, have ye any meat? They answered him,
No.

6 And he said unto them, " Cast the net
on the right side of the ship, and ye shall
find. They cast therefore, and now they
were not able to draw it for the multitude
of fishes.

7 Therefore ^that disciple whom Jesus
loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now
when Simon Peter heard that it was the
Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for
he was naked) ind did cast himself into
the sea.

8 And the other disciples came in a little
ship (for they were not far from land, but
as it were two hundred cubits) dragging the
net with fishes.

9 As soon then as they were come to
land, they saw a fire of coals there, and
fish laid thereon, and bread.

10 Jesus saith unto them. Bring of the
fish which ye have now caught.

11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the
net to land full of great fishes, an hundred
and fifty and three : and for all there were
so many, yet was not the net broken.

12 Jesus saith unto them, s Come and
dine. And none of the disciples durst ask
him. Who art thou ? knowing that it was
the Lord.

13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread,
and giveth them, and fish likewise.

14 This is now ''the third time that Jesus
shewed himself to his disciples, after that
he was risen from the dead.

15 H So when they had dined, Jesus saith
to Simon Peter, Simon son of Jonas, lovest
thou me more than these ? He saith unto
him. Yea, Lord : thou knowest that I love
thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

16 He saith to him again the second time,
Simon son of Jonas, lovest thou me ? He
saith unto him. Yea, Lord : thou knowest
that I love thee. 'He saith unto hun, Feed
my sheep.

17 He saith unto him the third time,
Simon son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter
was grieved because he said unto him the
third time, Lovest thou me? And he said
unto him, Lord, ^ thou knowest all things ;
thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith
unto him. Feed my sheep.

18 'Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When
thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and
walkedst whither thou wouldest : but when
thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth
thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and
carry thee whither thou wouldest not.
