Chapter Nineteen

THEN Pilate therefore took IaHUShUA',and flogged Him.
And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, put it on His head, and a purple cloak they put on Him,
3 And came to Him and said, Hail, King of the Iahudim! and they smote Him with their hands.
4 And went out again this Pilate, and said to them, Behold, I bring Him out to you, that you may know that no fault I find in Him.
5 Then came IaHUShUA' forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple cloak. And Pilate said to them, Behold the man!
6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw Him, they cried out, saying, Impale, impale. Said to them this Pilate, Take Him you, and impale: for I find no fault in Him.
7 The Iahudim answered him, We have a law, and by this law He ought to die, because He made Himself the Son of Elohim.
8 When therefore heard Pilate that saying, he was more afraid;
9 And went into the judgment hall again, and said to IaHUShUA',From where are You? But IaHUShUA' no answer gave him.
10 Then to Him said Pilate, Speak You not to me? know You not that I have power to release You, and have power to impale You?
11 IaHUShUA' answered, You could have no power against Me at all, except it were given you from above: therefore these that delivered Me to you greater sin have.
12 From this point Pilate sought to release Him: but the Iahudim cried out, saying, If This Man you let go, you are not Caesar's friend: who ever a king himself makes speaks against Caesar.
13 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought IaHUShUA' forth, and sat down in judgment seat in a place that is called Gabbatha.
14 And it was Preparation of the Passover, it was about the sixth hour: and he said to the Iahudim, Behold your King!
15 But they cried out, Take away, take away, impale Him. Pilate said to them, This your King shall I impale? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.
16 Then therefore delivered he Him unto them to be impaled. And they took IaHUShUA.
17 And he bearing himself the stake went forth into a place called Golgotha:
18 Where they impaled Him on the stake, and two other with Him, on both sides, and in the midst this IaHUShUA.
19 And also wrote an epithet this Pilate, and put it on this post of impalement. And was written: IaHUShUA' this nazirite the king of the Iahudim.
20 This title consequently many read of the Iahudim: for near to the city was the place where was impaled this IaHUShUA: and it was written in Hebrew, Latin and Greek.
21 Then said to Pilate the chief priests of the Iahudim, Write not, the King of the Iahudim; but that He said, I am King of the Iahudim.
22 Answered this Pilate, What I have written I have written.
23 Then the soldiers, when they had impaled IaHUShUA',took His garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; also the robe: now the robe was without seam, 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: in fulfillment of the Scripture, which says, "They parted My raiment among them, and for My vesture they cast lots" (Psalm 22:18). These things therefore the soldiers did.
25 Now there stood by the stake of IaHUShUA' His mother, His mother's sister, Miriam of Cleophas, and Miriam of Magdala.
26 When IaHUShUA' therefore saw His mother, and the disciple standing by, whom He loved, He said unto mother, Woman, behold this your son!
27 Then said He to the disciple, Behold this your mother! And from that hour took that disciple her into this his own.
28 After this, IaHUShUA' knowing that now all things were accomplished, in fulfillment of the Scripture, said, I thirst.
29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to His mouth.
30 When IaHUShUA' therefore had received the vinegar, He said, It is finished: and He bowed the head, and yielded up this breath of life.
31 The Iahudim therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the stake on the ShaBBaT, (for that ShaBBaT was a high day,) (PeSaCh it was) requested of Pilate that might be broken their legs, and they might be taken away.
32 Then came the soldiers, and indeed broke the legs of the first, and of the other which was impaled with Him.
33 But when they came to IaHUShUA',saw already He was dead, broke not His legs:
34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced His side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
35 And this he that saw testified, and his testimony is True: and that one knows that what he says is True, that also you be persuaded.
36 For these things were done, in fulfillment of the Scripture, "A bone not shall be broken of Him". (Psalm 34:20) (EXOD.12:46, NUM.9-12 the "Passover" lamb, was not to have a bone broken, was to be slain on the fourteenth day of the first month just before even. The next day starts at evening. This IaHUShUA',is truly the Lamb of IaHUeH!)
37 And again another Scripture says, "They shall look on Him whom they pierced" (Zech. 12:10).
38 And after this requested of Pilate this Ioseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of IaHUShUA',but secretly for this fear of the Iahudim, that he might take away the body of IaHUShUA: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of IaHUShUA.
39 And there came also Nicodemus, (which at the first came to IaHUShUA' by night,) and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds.
40 Then took they the body of IaHUShUA',and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, according as the custom is of the Iahudim to bury.
41 Now there was in the place where He was impaled a garden; and in this garden a sepulchre new, wherein never yet any one was laid.
42 These things being so, on account of the Preparation, because near was the sepulchre: there laid they IaHUShUA.
