27 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

15At the festival season it was the Governor's custom to release one prisoner chosen by the people.Jesus Sentenced to Die Mt.27.15-26 (Jerusalem) | Mk.15.6-15 | Lk.23.13-25 | Jn.18.39-19.16Κατὰ δὲ ἑορτὴν εἰώθει ὁ ἡγεμὼν ἀπολύειν ἑνα τῷ ὀχλῳ δέσμιον ὃν ἠθελον.
16There was then in custody a man of some notoriety, called Jesus Some witnesses omit: Jesus. Bar-Abbas. εἶχον δὲ τότε δέσμιον ἐπίσημον λεγόμενον Ἰησοῦν Βαραββᾶν.
17When they were assembled Pilate said to them, 'Which would you like me to release to you Jesus Bar-Abbas, or Jesus called Messiah?' συνηγμένων οὖν αὐτῶν εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ὁ Πιλᾶτος, Τίνα θέλετε ἀπολύσω ὑμῖν, Ἰησοῦν τὸν Βαραββᾶν ἢ Ἰησοῦν τὸν λεγόμενον Χριστόν;
18For he knew that it was out of spite that they had brought Jesus before him.
 ᾐδει γὰρ ὅτι διὰ φθόνον παρέδωκαν αὐτόν.
19While Pilate was sitting in court a message came to him from his wife: 'Have nothing to do with that innocent man; I was much troubled on his account in my dreams last night.'
 Καθημένου δὲ αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τοῦ βήματος ἀπέστειλεν πρὸς αὐτὸν ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ λέγουσα, Μηδὲν σοὶ καὶ τῷ δικαίῳ ἐκείνῳ, πολλὰ γὰρ ἐπαθον σήμερον κατ' ὀναρ δῖ αὐτόν.
20Meanwhile the chief priests and elders had persuaded the crowd to ask for the release of Bar-Abbas and to have Jesus put to death. Οἱ δὲ ἀρχιερεῖς καὶ οἱ πρεσβύτεροι ἐπεισαν τοὺς ὀχλους ἵνα αἰτήσωνται τὸν Βαραββᾶν τὸν δὲ Ἰησοῦν ἀπολέσωσιν.
21So when the Governor asked, 'Which of the two do you wish me to release to you?', they said, 'Bar-Abbas.' ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ ἡγεμὼν εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, Τίνα θέλετε ἀπὸ τῶν δύο ἀπολύσω ὑμῖν; οἱ δὲ εἶπαν, Τὸν Βαραββᾶν.
22'Then what am I to do with Jesus called Messiah?' asked Pilate; and with one voice they answered, 'Crucify him!' λέγει αὐτοῖς ὁ Πιλᾶτος, Τί οὖν ποιήσω Ἰησοῦν τὸν λεγόμενον Χριστόν; λέγουσιν πάντες, Σταυρωθήτω.
23'Why, what harm has he done?' Pilate asked; but they shouted all the louder, 'Crucify him!'
 ὁ δὲ ἐφη, Τί γὰρ κακὸν ἐποίησεν; οἱ δὲ περισσῶς ἐκραζον λέγοντες, ΣΤΑΥΡΩΘΗΤΩ.
24Pilate could see that nothing was being gained, and a riot was starting; so he took water and washed his hands in full view of the people, saying, 'My hands are clean of this man's blood; see to that yourselves.' ἰδὼν δὲ ὁ Πιλᾶτος ὅτι οὐδὲν ὠφελεῖ ἀλλὰ μᾶλλον θόρυβος γίνεται, λαβὼν ὑδωρ ἀπενίψατο τὰς χεῖρας ἀπέναντι τοῦ ὀχλου, λέγων, Ἀθῷός εἰμι ἀπὸ τοῦ αἱματος τούτου· ὑμει 'ς ὀψεσθε.
25And with one voice the people cried, 'His blood be on us, and on our children.' καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς πᾶς ὁ λαὸς εἶπεν, Τὸ αἷμα αὐτοῦ ἐφ' ἡμᾶς καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ τέκνα ἡμῶν.
26He then released Bar-Abbas to them; but he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.
 τότε ἀπέλυσεν αὐτοῖς τὸν Βαραββᾶν, τὸν δὲ Ἰησοῦν φραγελλώσας παρέδωκεν ἵνα σταυρωθῇ.
