and, behold, I, having examined him before you <​&​> have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accused him. No, nor yet Herod; for I sent you to him; and lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him I will therefore chastise him and release him. For of necessity, he must release one unto them at the feast. But they cryed out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas; who for a certain sedition made in the City, and for murder, was cast into prison. Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them. But the <​they​> cried, saying Crucify him, Crucify him. 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. And they were instant in loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified; And the voices of them, and the cheif Priests, prevailed. And Pilate gave sentence <​5​> that it should be as they required. <​5​> And he released unto them, him, who for sedition and murder, was cast into prison, whom they had desired; and deliverd Jesus to their will. And as they led him away, the <​they​> laid hold of <​upon​> one Simon a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him <​6​> they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus. <​6​> And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, who also bewailed and lamented him. But Jesus turned unto them, <​and​> said, Daughters of Jerrusalem, weep not for me, but weep <​not​> for yourselves, and for your children; for behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs which never bear, and the paps which never gave suck. Then shall the <​they​> begin to say to the Mountains; Fall on us; and to Hills; Cover us. for <​and​> if they are these things <​are done​> in a <​the​> green tree, what shall be done a <​in the​> dry tree? This he spake, signifying the scattering of Israel, and the desolati<​7​>on of the heathen, or in other words, the gentiles. <​7​> And there were also two others, malefactors, led with him to be put do death. And when they were come to the place which is called calvary, there they crucified him, and the mallefactors; one on the right hand, and the other on the <​8​> left. <​8​> Then said Jesus; Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. (Meaning the Soldiers who crucified him) And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. And the people stood beholding. And the Rulers also with <​them​> derided, saying, he <​He​> saved others, let him save himself, if he be christ, the chosen of God. And Soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him viniger <​9​> and saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself. <​9​> And a Superscription also was written over him, in letters of greek [p. 101 (second numbering)]

I have found no cause of death in him; I will therefore chastise him, and let him go. And they were instant in loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified; And the voices of them, and the cheif Priests, prevailed. And Pilate gave sentence 5 that it should be as they required. 5 And he released unto them, him, who for sedition and murder, was cast into prison, whom they had desired; and deliverd Jesus to their will. And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him 6 they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus. 6 And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, who also bewailed and lamented him. But Jesus turned unto them, and said, Daughters of Jerrusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children; for behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs which never bear, and the paps which never gave suck.

And when they were come to the place which is called calvary, there they crucified him, and the mallefactors; one on the right hand, and the other on the 8 left. 8 Then said Jesus; Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. (Meaning the Soldiers who crucified him) And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. And the people stood beholding. And the Rulers also with them derided, saying, He saved others, let him save himself, if he be christ, the chosen of God. And Soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him viniger 9 and saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself. 9 And a Superscription also was written over him, in letters of greek [p. 101 (second numbering)]
