27 Revised Standard Version Passage

3When Judas, his betrayer, saw that he was condemned, he repented and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders,The Death of Judas Mt.27.3-10 (Jerusalem) | Ac.1.18-19
4saying, "I have sinned in betraying innocent blood." They said, "What is that to us? See to it yourself." 
5And throwing down the pieces of silver in the temple, he departed; and he went and hanged himself. 
6But the chief priests, taking the pieces of silver, said, "It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, since they are blood money." 
7So they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in. 
8Therefore that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day. 
9Then was fulfilled what had been spoken by the prophet Jeremiah, saying, "And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him on whom a price had been set by some of the sons of Israel,- And they took the thirty pieces of silver Mt.27.9 | Zch.11.12-13
10and they gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord directed me."
