Luke 23
Literal Emphasis Translation Par ▾ 
1And the whole multitude of them having risen up led Him to (upon) Pilate. 2And they began to accuse Him, saying, We found this Man misleading our nation (ethnicity) and forbidding tribute (tax) to be given to Caesar, and saying He Himself to be Christ, a King. 3And Pilate questioned Him, saying, Are You the king of the Jews? And answering him, He said, You say. 4And Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds, I find no cause (guilt, fault) in this man. 5However they were growing stronger (insisting, strong upon), saying, He stirs up the people, teaching throughout the whole of Judea, and He has begun from Galilee even to here.

6And Pilate having heard, asked whether the Man is a Galilean;

7And having recognized that He is from the jurisdiction (authority) of Herod, he sent Him up to Herod, being himself also in Jerusalem in those days.

8And Herod, having seen Jesus was very glad; for he was for a considerable time wanting to see Him, because of hearing concerning Him; and he was hoping to see some sign done by Him. 9And he questioned Him in many words; however He answered him nothing. 10And the chief priests and the scribes had been standing by vigorously accusing Him. 11And Herod with his troops treated Him as nothing, and mocked Him, put splendid clothing on Him, he sent Him back to Pilate. 12And Pilate and Herod became friends with one another on the same day; for before they were at (in) enmity between themselves.

13And Pilate having called together the chief priests, and the rulers, and the people, 14Said to them, You brought this Man to me as misleading the people; and behold, I having examined Him in your sight, found nothing causative in this man of that accusation you are bringing against Him. 15Nor did Herod; for he sent Him back to us. And behold, nothing worthy of death is done (regularly practiced) by Him. 16Having therefore chastised (disciplined as a child) Him, I will release Him. 17{and of necessity he had to release one at the feast.}

18However they cried out all together, saying, Away (remove) with this Man, release Barabbas to us! 19Who was cast into prison on account of a certain insurrection having been made in the city and murder. 20Pilate therefore called again to them wanting to release Jesus. 21However they were calling out (shouting), saying, Crucify, crucify Him. 22And a third time he said to them, For what wrong did this Man commit? I found no cause of death in Him. Having therefore chastised Him, I will release Him. 23And they were insistent (set upon) with great voices, demanding Him to be crucified. And their voices {and of the chief priests} prevailed (overpowered, strong against). 24And Pilate sentenced their demand to be done. 25And he released the one having been cast into prison on account of insurrection and murder, whom they had asked for; and he handed over Jesus to their will.

26And as they led Him away, having laid hold upon Simon, a certain of Cyrene, coming from the country, they put the cross upon him to carry it behind Jesus.

27And a great multitude of the people and of women who were mourning and lamenting for Him were following. 28And having turned to them, Jesus said, Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for (upon) Me, however weep for (upon) yourselves and for (upon) your children. 29Because behold, days are coming in which they will say, Blessed are the barren and the wombs that never did bear, and breasts that never nursed. 30Then will they begin to say to the mountains, Fall upon us; and to the hills, Cover (conceal) us: 31For if these things they do in the sap-filled tree, what might happen in the dry?

32And also two other criminals (wrong-workers) were being led away with Him to be put to death.

33And when they came upon the place called The Skull (greek-Kranion, Latin-Calvariae, KJV-Calvary), there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on (from out of) the right, and one on (from out of) the left. 34And Jesus said, Father, remit them, for they do not know what they do. And dividing his garments (outer garments), they cast a lot. 35And the people stood beholding. And the rulers were sneering at (deriding) Him, saying, He saved others, let Him save Himself if this is the Christ, the Chosen [One] (Elect) of God. 36And the soldiers also mocked Him, coming near, offering Him sour wine vinegar, 37And saying, If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself! 38And there was also an inscription over (upon) Him, This is the King of the Jews, in Greek and Latin and Hebrew letters.

39And one of the criminals having been suspended, blasphemed Him saying, Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us! 40And answering, the other was censuring him, saying, Do you not fear God, because you are in the same judgment? 41And we indeed justly, for we are receiving worthy of what we did (regularly practiced); however this Man did (practiced) nothing out of place (atopon). 42And he said to Jesus, Remember me when You come into Your kingdom! 43And He said to him, Truly to you, I say, you will be with Me today in Paradise.

44And it was already about the sixth hour and darkness came over (upon) the whole land until the ninth hour. 45The sun was obscured (leave off, eklipontos- root of English word for eclipsed, latin-obscuratus-darkened roots are obscured/ minimizing), and the veil of the temple was divided asunder in the middle. 46And having called out with a great voice, Jesus said, Father into Your hands I commit My spirit. And having said this, He breathed out His last. 47And the centurion having seen what happened, glorified God, saying, Certainly this Man was righteous (just). 48And all the crowds having come together upon this spectacle, having beheld the things having happened, returned [home] beating their breasts (chests). 49And all those who knew Him stood from afar off also the women who followed Him from Galilee, seeing these things.

50And behold, a man named Joseph, a Council member, being a good and righteous man, 51(He had not consented to their counsel/resolved plan and action), from Arimathaea, a city of the Jews, who was waiting for the kingdom of God. 52He having gone to Pilate, asked for the body of Jesus. 53And having taken it down, he wrapped it in a fine linen cloth, and placed it in a tomb cut in a rock, in which no one had been yet laid. 54And it was the day of preparation (the day before the Sabbath-Friday), and the Sabbath was coming on. 55And the women who had come with Him from out of Galilee, having followed, beheld the tomb and how His body was placed. 56And having returned, they prepared aromatic spices and anointing ointments and rested (remained tranquil) on the Sabbath according to the commandment.
