27Matthew

1 When morning came, all the chief priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death; Jesus Brought before Pilate Mt.27.1-2 (Jerusalem) -[ Mt.27.1-2 → ] - Mk.15.1, Lk.23.1-2, Jn.18.28-32 MgnEdit
2 and they bound him and led him away and delivered him to Pilate the governor.

  MgnEdit
3 When 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 MgnEdit
4 saying, "I have sinned in betraying innocent blood." They said, "What is that to us? See to it yourself."   MgnEdit
5 And throwing down the pieces of silver in the temple, he departed; and he went and hanged himself.   MgnEdit
6 But the chief priests, taking the pieces of silver, said, "It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, since they are blood money."

  MgnEdit
7 So they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in.   MgnEdit
8 Therefore that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day.   MgnEdit
9 Then 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 MgnEdit
10 and they gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord directed me."

  MgnEdit
11 Now Jesus stood before the governor; and the governor asked him, "Are you the King of the Jews?" Jesus said, "You have said so."

Jesus Questioned by Pilate Mt.27.11-14[ Mt.27.11-14 → ] - Mk.15.2-5, Lk.23.3-5, Jn.18.33-38 MgnEdit
12 But when he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he made no answer.   MgnEdit
13 Then Pilate said to him, "Do you not hear how many things they testify against you?"   MgnEdit
14 But he gave him no answer, not even to a single charge; so that the governor wondered greatly.   MgnEdit
15 Now at the feast the governor was accustomed to release for the crowd any one prisoner whom they wanted. Jesus Sentenced to Die Mt.27.15-26 (Jerusalem) -[ Mt.27.15-26 → ] - Mk.15.6-15, Lk.23.13-25, Jn.18.39-19.16 MgnEdit
16 And they had then a notorious prisoner, called <span class="footer">Jesus</span> Barabbas.

  MgnEdit
17 So when they had gathered, Pilate said to them, "Whom do you want me to release for you, <span class="footer">Jesus</span> Barabbas or Jesus who is called Christ?"

  MgnEdit
18 For he knew that it was out of envy that they had delivered him up.

  MgnEdit
19 Besides, while he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent word to him, "Have nothing to do with that righteous man, for I have suffered much over him today in a dream."

  MgnEdit
20 Now the chief priests and the elders persuaded the people to ask for Barabbas and destroy Jesus.

  MgnEdit
21 The governor again said to them, "Which of the two do you want me to release for you?" And they said, "Barabbas."   MgnEdit
22 Pilate said to them, "Then what shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?" They all said, "Let him be crucified."   MgnEdit
23 And he said, "Why, what evil has he done?" But they shouted all the more, "LET HIM BE CRUCIFIED."   MgnEdit
24 So when Pilate saw that he was gaining nothing, but rather that a riot was beginning, he took water and washed his hands before the crowd, saying, "I am innocent of this man's blood; see to it yourselves."

  MgnEdit
25 And all the people answered, "His blood be on us and on our children!"   MgnEdit
26 Then he released for them Barabbas, and having scourged Jesus, delivered him to be crucified.   MgnEdit
27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the praetorium, and they gathered the whole battalion before him. The Soldiers Mock Jesus Mt.27.27-31 (Jerusalem) -[ Mt.27.27-31 → ] - Mk.15.16-20, Jn.19.2-3 MgnEdit
28 And they stripped him and put a scarlet robe upon him,   MgnEdit
29 and plaiting a crown of thorns they put it on his head, and put a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him they mocked him, saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!"   MgnEdit
30 And they spat upon him, and took the reed and struck him on the head.   MgnEdit
31 And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the robe, and put his own clothes on him, and led him away to crucify him.

  MgnEdit
32 As they went out, they came upon a man of Cyrene, Simon by name; this man they compelled to carry his cross.

The Crucifixion of Jesus Mt.27.32-44[ Mt.27.32-44 → ] - Mk.15.21-32, Lk.23.26-43, Jn.19.17-27 MgnEdit
33 And when they came to a place called Golgotha (which means the place of a skull),

  MgnEdit
34 they offered him wine to drink, mingled with gall; but when he tasted it, he would not drink it. - they offered him wine to drink, mingled with gall - but when he tasted it, he would not drink Mt.27.34 - Ps.69.21 MgnEdit
35 And when they had crucified him, they divided his garments among them by casting lots;

- And when they had crucified him, they divided his garments among them by casting lots - Mt.27.35 - Ps.22.18 MgnEdit
36 then they sat down and kept watch over him there.   MgnEdit
37 And over his head they put the charge against him, which read, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

  MgnEdit
38 Then two robbers were crucified with him, one on the right and one on the left.

  MgnEdit
39 And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads

- And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads Mt.27.39 - Ps.22.7, Ps.109.25, Lm.2.15 MgnEdit
40 and saying, "You who would destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross."   MgnEdit
41 So also the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked him, saying,   MgnEdit
42 "He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the King of Israel; let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him.   MgnEdit
43 He trusts in God; let God deliver him now, if he desires him; for he said, 'I am the Son of God.' "

- He trusts in God - let God deliver him now, if he desires him - for he said, 'I am the Son of Mt.27.43 - Ps.22.8 MgnEdit
44 And the robbers who were crucified with him also reviled him in the same way.   MgnEdit
45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour.

The Death of Jesus Mt.27.45-56 (Golgotha) -[ Mt.27.45-56 → ] - Mk.15.33-41, Lk.23.44-49, Jn.19.28-30 MgnEdit
46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, "Eli, Eli, lama sabach-thani?" that is, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

- My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Mt.27.46 - Ps.22.1 MgnEdit
47 And some of the bystanders hearing it said, "This man is calling Elijah."   MgnEdit
48 And one of them at once ran and took a sponge, filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave it to him to drink.   MgnEdit
49 But the others said, "Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him."

  MgnEdit
50 And Jesus cried again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit.

  MgnEdit
51 And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom; and the earth shook, and the rocks were split;   MgnEdit
52 the tombs also were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised,

  MgnEdit
53 and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many.   MgnEdit
54 When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe, and said, "Truly this was the Son of God!"

  MgnEdit
55 There were also many women there, looking on from afar, who had followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to him;   MgnEdit
56 among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.   MgnEdit
57 When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who also was a disciple of Jesus. The Burial of Jesus Mt.27.57-61 (The Garden) -[ Mt.27.57-61 → ] - Mk.15.42-47, Lk.23.50-56, Jn.19.38-42 MgnEdit
58 He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate ordered it to be given to him.   MgnEdit
59 And Joseph took the body, and wrapped it in a clean linen shroud,   MgnEdit
60 and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn in the rock; and he rolled a great stone to the door of the tomb, and departed.   MgnEdit
61 Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were there, sitting opposite the sepulchre.   MgnEdit
62 Next day, that is, after the day of Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate The Guard on the Tomb Mt.27.62-66 (The Garden) - MgnEdit
63 and said, "Sir, we remember how that impostor said, while he was still alive, 'After three days I will rise again.'

  MgnEdit
64 Therefore order the sepulchre to be made secure until the third day, lest his disciples go and steal him away, and tell the people, 'He has risen from the dead,' and the last fraud will be worse than the first."   MgnEdit
65 Pilate said to them, "You have a guard of soldiers; go, make it as secure as you can."

  MgnEdit
66 So they went and made the sepulchre secure by sealing the stone and setting a guard.   MgnEdit

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background.
