Mark 15:1-20 : American Standard Version
1And straightway in the morning the chief priests with the elders and scribes, and the whole council, held a consultation, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him up to Pilate. 2And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering saith unto him, Thou sayest. 3And the chief priests accused him of many things. 4And Pilate again asked him, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they accuse thee of. 5But Jesus no more answered anything; insomuch that Pilate marvelled.
6Now at the feast he used to release unto them one prisoner, whom they asked of him. 7And there was one called Barabbas, lying bound with them that had made insurrection, men who in the insurrection had committed murder. 8And the multitude went up and began to ask him to do as he was wont to do unto them. 9And Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews? 10For he perceived that for envy the chief priests had delivered him up. 11But the chief priests stirred up the multitude, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them. 12And Pilate again answered and said unto them, What then shall I do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews? 13And they cried out again, Crucify him. 14And Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out exceedingly, Crucify him. 15And Pilate, wishing to content the multitude, released unto them Barabbas, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.
16And the soldiers led him away within the court, which is the Praetorium; and they call together the whole band. 17And they clothe him with purple, and platting a crown of thorns, they put it on him; 18and they began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews! 19And they smote his head with a reed, and spat upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him. 20And when they had mocked him, they took off from him the purple, and put on him his garments. And they lead him out to crucify him.
