Command therefore, that the Sepulchre be made sure untill the third day, lest his deciples come by night, & steal him away, & say unto the People, He is risen from the dead; so this last imposter will be worse then the first. 26/ Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch; go your way, make it as shure as you can. So they went & made the sepulchre shure, sealing the stone, & seting a watch.
