Luke 23

And the whole multitude of them arose, and led Him unto Pilate.

2 And they began to accuse Him, saying, “We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that He Himself is the Messiah (haMashiach) – the King!”

3 And Pilate asked Him, saying, “Art You the King of the Jews (Yehudim)? And He answered him and said, “You sayest it.”

4 Then said Pilate to the chief priests (kohanim) and to the people, “I find no fault in this Man.”

5 And they were the more fierce, saying, “He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry (Yehudah), beginning from Galilee to this place.”

6 When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the Man was a Galilaean.

7 And as soon as he knew that He belonged unto Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem (Yerushalayim) at that time.

8 And when Herod saw YHWH, he was exceeding glad; for he was desirous to see Him of a long season, because he had heard many things of Him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by Him.

9 Then he questioned with Him in many words; but He answered him nothing.

10 And the chief priests (kohanim) and scribes stood and vehemently accused Him.

11 And Herod with his men of war set Him at nought, and mocked Him, and arrayed Him in a gorgeous robe, and sent Him again to Pilate.

12 And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together; for before they were at enmity between themselves.

13 And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests (kohanim) and the rulers and the people,

14 Said unto them, “You 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 you accuse Him;

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

16 I will therefore chastise Him, and release Him.”

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

18 And they cried out all at once, saying, “Away with this Man, and release unto us Barabbas;”

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

20 Pilate therefore, willing to release YHWH, spake again to them.

21 But they cried, saying, “Crucify Him, crucify Him!”

22 And 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 And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that He might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests (kohanim) prevailed.

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

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

26 And as they led Him away, they laid hold upon one Shimon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the stake, that he might bear it after YHWH.

27 And there followed Him a great company of people, and of women, who also bewailed and lamented Him.

28 But YHWH turning unto them said, “Daughters of Jerusalem (Yerushalayim), weep not for Me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.

29 For, behold, the days are coming, in which they shall say, ‘Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck!’

30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, “Fall on us!” And to the hills, “Cover us!”’ – Hos. 10:8

31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?”

32 And there were also two others, malefactors, led with Him to be put to death.

33 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.

34 Then said YHWH, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” And they parted His raiment, and cast lots. – Psa. 22:18

35 And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, “He saved others; let Him save Himself, if He be the Messiah (haMashiach), the chosen of God (Elohim).” – Psa. 22:8

36 And the soldiers also mocked Him, coming to Him, and offering Him vinegar, – Psa. 69:21

37 And saying, “If You be the King of the Jews (Yehudim), save Yourself.”

38 And a superscription also was written over Him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS (YEHUDIM).

39 And one of the malefactors who were hanged railed on Him, saying, “If You be the Messiah (haMashiach), save Yourself and us.”

40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, “Dost not you fear God (Elohim), seeing you are in the same condemnation?

41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man hath done nothing amiss.”

42 And he said unto YHWH, “My Lord (Adonai), remember me when You comest into Your kingdom.”

43 And YHWH said unto him, “Verily I say unto you, today shalt you be with Me in paradise.”

44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.

45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.

46 And when YHWH had cried with a loud voice, He said, “Father, into Your hands I commend My Spirit.” and having said thus, He gave up His Spirit (breathed His last). – Psa. 31:5

47 Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God (Elohim), saying, “Certainly this was a righteous Man!”

48 And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned.

49 And all His acquaintance, and the women that followed Him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.

50 And, behold, there was a man named Joseph (Yosef), a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just.

51 (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews (Yehudim); who also himself waited for the kingdom of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)).

52 This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of YHWH.

53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.

54 And that day was the preparation, and the Shabbat drew on.

55 And the women also, who came with Him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how His body was laid.

56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the Shabbat day according to the commandment.
