THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Matthew (Author Matthew)

27:15Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.

27:16And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.

27:17Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?

27:18For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.

27:19When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.

27:20But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

27:21The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

27:22Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.

27:23And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

27:24When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

27:25Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

27:26Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

Mark (Author John Mark)

15:6Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired.

15:7And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.

15:8And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them.

15:9But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?

15:10For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.

15:11But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.

15:12And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews?

15:13And they cried out again, Crucify him.

15:14Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.

15:15And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.

Luke (Author Luke)

23:13And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people,

23:14Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him:

23:15No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him.

23:16I will therefore chastise him, and release him.

23:17(For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)

23:18And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas:

23:19(Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.)

23:20Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them.

23:21But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.

23:22And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him go.

23:23And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.

23:24And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required.

23:25And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will.

John (Author John)

18:39But 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?

18:40Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.

19:1Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.

19:2And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,

19:3And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.

19:4Pilate 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.

19:5Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!

19:6When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.

19:7The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.

19:8When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;

19:9And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.

19:10Then 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?

19:11Jesus answered, Thou 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.

19:12And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.

19:13When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.

19:14And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!

19:15But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.

19:16Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.
