The Jews answered him, We have a Law, and by our Law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God. When Pilate therefore heard that SAYING, he was the more AFRAID : and went again into the Judgment - Hall, and faith unto Jesus, WHENCE art thou? But Jesus gave him no ANSWER. Then faith Pilate unto him, Speakeft thou not unto me? Knowest thou not that I have Power to CRUCIFY thee, and have power to release thee? Jesus answered, Thou couldst 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. And from thenceforth Pilate sought to RELEASE him : but the Jews cried out, saying, if thou let this Man go, thou art not Cefar's Friend : Whosoever maketh himself a King, speakech against Cefar. When 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. And it was the Preparation of the Pafsover, and about the fixth Hour : And he faith unto the Jews, Behold your King. But they cried out, Away with him, Away with him, CRUCIFY him. Pilate faith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The Chief Priests answered, We have no King but Cesar. [M.] When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a Tumult was made, he took WATER, and washed his Hands before the Multitude, faying, I am INNOCENT of the Blood of this Just Person: See ye to it. Then answered all the People, and said, His Blood be on us, and on our Children. Then [Mr.] Pilate, willing to content the People, (L.) gave ŠENTENCE that it should be as they required. And he released unto them [Mr.) Barabbas, [L.) him that for Sedition and Murder was cast into Prison, whom they had defired : [M.] And when he had fcourged Jesus, he delivered him (L.) to their Will, [M] to be CRUCIFIED.
