Chap. iii. 18. For Christ also hath once fuffered for SINS, the JUST for the UNJUST (that he might bring us to God) being put to Death in the FLESH, but quickned by the SPIRIT:

[7] Pilate therefore went forth again, and faith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may KNOW that I find no FAULT in him. Then came Fefus forth, wearing the CROWN of THORNS, and the PURPLE ROBE. And Pilate faith unto them, Behold the Man. When the Chief Priefts therefore and Officers faw him, Chap. v. 6. This is he that came they CRIED out, faying, by WATER and BLOOD, even Jefus Chrift; not by Water only, but by CRUCIFY him, CRUCIFY Water and Blood: And it is the him.

them, Take ye him, and the Spirit is Truth. CRUCIFY him, for I find no

FAULT in him. The Ferus anfwered 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 Jefus, WHENCE art thou? But Jefus gave him no ANSWER. Then faith Pilate unto him, Speakeft thou not unto me? Knoweft thou not that I have Power to CRUCIFY thee, and have PoWER to release thee? Jefus 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 fought to RELEASE him but the Jews cried out, faying, If thou let this Man go, thou art not Cefar's Friend: Whofoever maketh himfelf a King, fpeaketh againft Cefar. When Pilate therefore heard that Saying, he brought Jefus forth, and fat down in the Judgment-feat, in a Place that is called the PAVEMENT, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha. And it was the Preparation of the Paffover, 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 Cefar. [M.] When Pilate faw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a Tumult was made, he took WATER, and wafhed his Hands before the Multitude, faying, I am INNOCENT of the BLOOD of this JUST Perfon: See ye to it. Then answered all the People, and faid, His BLOOD be on us, and on our Children. Then [Mr.] Pilate, willing to content the People, [L.] gave SENTENCE that it fhould be as they required. And he released unto them [Mr.] Barabbas, [Ĺ.] him that for Sedition and Murder was caft into Prifon, whom they had defired: [M.] And when he had fcourged Jefus, he delivered him [L.] to their Will, [M] to be CRUCIFIED.



CHRIST is brought out of the City of Jerufalem, to the Place of bis Suffering.

[7]AND they took fefus, [M] and after that they had MOCKED him, they took [Mr.] the PURPLE ROBE off from him, [M.] and put his own Raiment on him, and LED him away to CRUCIFY [Mr.] him : [7] And he BEARING his CROSS, went forth. [L.] And as they led him away, [M.] they found a Man, [Mr.] one Simon, a Cyrenean, who paffed by, coming out of the Country, the Father of Alexander and Rufus: [L.] and they laid hold on Simon the Cyrenean, [M] him they compelled, [L] and on him they laid the CROSS, that he might bear it after Fefus. And there followed him a great Company of People, and of Women, which alfo bewailed and LAMENTED him. But Jefus turning unto them, faid, Daughters of Jerufalem, WEEP not for me, but WEEP for your felves, and for your Children; for behold, the Days are coming, in the which they fhall fay, Bleffed are the Barren, and the Wombs that never bare, and the Paps which never gave fuck. Then fhall they begin to fay to the MOUNTAINS, FALL on us; and to the Hills, COVER us. For if they do thefe Things in a green TREE, what fhall be done in the DRY? And there were alfo two other Malefactors, led with him to be put to Death.

CHRIST is Crucified. Wine mingled with Myrrh is given him to drink.

[M]AND when they were come to a Place called Golgotha, [Mr. which is, being 'interpreted, the Place of a Skull, they gave him to drink Wine mingled with Myrrh; [M.] Vinegar mingled with Gall: [Mr.] But he received it not: for [M] when he had tafted thereof, he would not drink. [L.] And when they were come to the Place which is called Calvary, there they CRUCIFIED him, [7] and two other [L.] Malefactors [7] with him, [L.] one on the right Hand, and the other on the left, [7] and Jefus in the midft. [Mr.] And it was the THIRD Hour when they CRUCIFIED him. And [M.] then [Mr.] with him they crucified two Thieves; the one on his right Hand, and the other on his left. And the SCRIPTURE was FULFILLED, which. faith, And he was numbred with the TRANSGRESSORS.



CHRIST prays for bis Murderers. The Title writ ten on the Crofs. The Divifion of his Garments.

[Mr.]THEN faid Jefus, Father, FORGIVE them, for

they know not what they DO. [7] And Pilate wrote a Title, and put it on the Crofs: [M.] And they fet up over his HEAD, his Accufation written : [Mr.] And his Accufation was written [L.] over him, in Letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS. [7] Then faid the Chief Priests of the Jews to Pilate, write not, The King of the Jews, but that he faid, I am the King of the Jews. Filate answered, What I have written, I have written. Then the Soldiers, when they had CRUCIFIED Jefus, took his Garments, (and made four Parts, to every Soldier a Part) and alfo his Coat: [L.] And they PARTED his RAIMENT, and caft Lors [Mr.] upon them, what every Man fhould take. [7] Now the Coat was without Seam, woven from the Top throughout;
