80 Now we know that thou knowest all things, and thou needest not that any man should ask thee. By this we believe that thou comest forth from God.

31 JESUS answered them: Do you now believe?

32 Behold the hour cometh, and it is now come, that you shall be scattered every man to his own, and shall leave me alone and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.

6 I have manifested thy name to the men whom thou hast given me out of the world. Thine they were, and to me thou gavest them: and they have kept thy word.

7 Now they have known that all things which thou hast given me are from thee:

8 Because the words which thou gavest me, I have given to them and they have received them, and have known in very deed that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

33 These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you shall have distress: but have confidence, I have over-cause they are thine: come the world.

9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them whom thou hast given me be

2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he may give eternal life to all whom thou hast given him.

8 Now this is eternal life: That they may know thee, the only true God, and JESUS CHRIST, whom thou hast sent.

4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do:

5 And now glorify thou me, O Father, with thyself, with the glory which I had, before the world was, with thee.

a Matt. 26. 31. Mark 14. 27.-b Matt. 28. 18.

10 And all my things are thine, and thine are mine: and I am glorified in them.

11 And now I am not in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name, whom thou hast given me: that they may be one, as we also are.

12 While I was with them, I kept them in thy name. Those whom thou gavest me have I kept: and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition, that the scripture may be fulfilled.

13 And now I come to thee: and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy filled in themselves.

14 I have given them thy word, and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world; as I also am not of the world.

15 I pray not that thou shouldst take them out of the

world, but that thou shouldst keep them from evil.

16 They are not of the world: as I also am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in truth. Thy word is truth.

18 As thou hast sent me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.

19 And for them do I sanctify myself: that they also may be sanctified in truth.

20 And not for them only do I pray, but for them also who through their word shall believe in me:

21 That they all may be one, as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

22 And the glory which thou hast given me, I have given to them that they may be one, as we also are one.

23 I in them, and thou in me: that they may be made perfect in one; and the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast also loved me.

24 Father, I will that where I am, they also whom thou hast given me may be with me: that they may see my glory which thou hast given me, because thou hast loved me before the creation of the world.

25 Just Father, the world hath not known thee; but I have known thee: and these have known, that thou hast

sent me.

26 And I have made known thy name to them, and will make it known; that the love, wherewith thou hast loved me, may be in them, and I in them.

the servant of the high-priest, and cut off his right ear. And the name of the servant was Malchus.

11 JESUS therefore said to Peter: Put up thy sword into the scabbard. The chalice which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?

12 Then the band and the tribune, and the servants of the Jews, took JESUS, and bound him:

20 JESUS answered him: I have spoken openly to the world: I have always taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither all the Jews resort; and in secret I have spoken nothing.

21 Why askest thou me? ask them who have heard what I have spoken unto them: behold they know what things I have said.

22 And when he had said 13 And they led him away to these things, one of the servanta a Annas fiist, for he was father-standing by, gave JESUS a blow, in-law to Caiphas, who was the saying: Answerest thou the high-priest of that year. high-priest so?

14 Now Caiphas was he, who had given the counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.

15 And Simon Peter followed JESUS, and so did another disciple. And that disciple was known to the high-priest, and went in with JESUS into the court of the high-priest.

16 But Peter stood at the door without. The other disciple therefore who was known to the high-priest, went out, and spoke to the portress, and brought in Peter.

17 The maid therefore that was portress, saith to Peter: Art not thou also one of this man's disciples? He saith: I am not.

18 Now the servants and ministers stood at a fire of coals, because it was cold, and warmed themselves. And with them was Peter also standing, warming himself.

19 The high-priest therefore asked JESUS of his disciples, and of his doctrine.

a Luke 23,-b Supra, 11. 49.-c Matt. 16. 58. Mark 14. 54. Luke 22, 55.

23 JESUS answered him: It I have spoken evil, give testimony of the evil: but if well, why strikest thou met

24 d And Annas sent him bound to Caiphas the highpriest.

25 And Simon Peter was standing, and warming himself. They said therefore to him: Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it and said: I am not.

26 One of the servants of the high-priest (a kinsman to him whose ear Peter cut off) saith to him: Did I not see thee in the garden with him!

27 Again therefore Peter denied: and immediately the cock crew.

28 Then they led JESUS from Caiphas to the governor's hall. And it was morning: and they went not into the hall, that they might not be defiled, but that they might eat the pasch.

29 Pilate therefore went out

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

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

32 That the word of JESUS might be fulfilled which he said, signifying what death he should die.

33 Pilate therefore went into the hall again, and called JESUS, and said to him: Art thou the king of the Jews?

34 JESUS answered: Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or have others told it thee of me?

35 Pilate answered: Am I a Jew? Thy own nation, and the chief priests have delivered thee up to me: what hast thou done?

36 JESUS answered: My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would certainly strive that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now my kingdom is not from hence.

87 Pilate therefore said to him Art thou a king then? JESUS answered: Thou sayest, that I am a king. For this was I born, and for this came I into the world: that I should give testimony to the truth. Every one that is of the truth, heareth my voice.

38 Pilate saith to him: What is truth? And when he said

a Matt. 20, 19.- Matt. 27. 11. Mark 15. 2. Luke 23. 3

39 But you have a custom that I should release one unto you at the pasch: will you therefore that I release unto you the king of the Jews?

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

THEN therefore Pilate took JESUS, and scourged him. 2 And the soldiers platting a crown of thorns, put it upon his head and they put on him a purple garment.

3 And they came to him, and said: Hail, king of the Jews: and they gave him blows.

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

5 (JESUS therefore came forth bearing the crown of thorns, and the purple garment.) And he saith to them: Behold 'the Man.

6 When the chief priests therefore and the servants had seen him, they cried cut, saying: Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith to them: Take him you, and crucify him: for I find no cause in him.

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

c Matt. 27. 15. Mark 15. 6. Luke 23. 17.-d Matt. 27 26. Mark 15. 15.

8 When Pilate tl.erefore had | And they took Jasus, and led heard this saying, he feared the him forth.


9 And he entered into the hall again, and he said to JESUS: Whence art thou? But JESUS gave him no answer.

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

11 JESUS answered: Thou shouldest not have any power against me, unless it were given thee from above. Therefore he that hath delivered me to thee, hath the greater sin.

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

13 Now when Pilate had heard these words, he brought JESUS forth; and sat down in the judgment-seat, in the place that is called Lithostrotos, and in Hebrew Gabbatha.

14 And it was the parasceve of the pasch, about the sixth hour, and he saith to the Jews: Behold your king.

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

16 Then therefore he deliver ed him to them to be crucified.

CHAP. XIX. Ver. 14. The parasceve of the pasch. That is, the day before the paschal sabbath. The eve of every sabbath was called the parasceve, or day of preparation. But this was the eve of a high sabbath, viz., that which fell in the paschal week.

17 And bearing his own cross he went forth to that place which is called Calvary, but in Hebrew Golgotha.

18 Where they crucified him, and with him two others, one on each side, and JESUS in the midst.

19 And Pilate wrote a title also: and he put it upon the And the writing was, cross. JESUS OF NAZARETH KING OF THE JEWS.


20 This title therefore many of the Jews did read because the place where JESUS was crucified, was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, in Greek, and in Latin.

21 Then the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate: Write not, the king of the Jews; but that he said: I am the king of the Jews,

22 Pilate answered: What I have written, I have written.

23 The soldiers therefore when they had crucified him, took his garments (and they made four parts, to every soldier a part) and also his coat. Now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.

24 They said then one to another: Let us not cut it. another: Let us but let us cast lots for it whose. it shall be; that the scripture might be fulfilled, saying: They have parted my garments among them: and upon my vesture they have cast lot. And the soldiers indeed did these things.
