27:1When the mornynge was come, all the chefe prestes and the elders of the people helde a counsayle agaynst Iesus, to put him to deeth,
27:2and brought him bounde and delyuered him vnto Poncius Pylate the debite.
27:3Then Iudas (which had betrayed him) seyng that he was condempned, repented him selfe, and brought agayne the thirtye plates of syluer, to the chefe Prestes and elders,
27:4sayinge: I haue synned, betrayinge the innocent bloud. And they sayd: what is that to vs? Se thou to that.
27:5And he cast downe the syluer plates in the temple, and departed and went and hanged hym selfe.
27:6And the chefe prestes toke the syluer plates and sayd: it is not lawfull for to put them into the treasure, because it is the pryce of bloud.
27:7And they toke counsell: and bought wt them a potters felde to bury straungers in.
27:8Wherfore that felde is called the felde of bloud, vntyll this daye.
27:9Then was fulfylled, that which was spoken by Ieremy the Prophet, sayinge: and they toke thirtye syluer plates, the pryse of him that was valued, whom they bought of the chyldren of Israel,
27:10and gaue them for the potters felde, as the Lorde apoynted me.
27:11Iesus stode before the debite, and the debite asked him, sayinge: art thou the kyng of the Iewes? Iesus sayeth vnto him: Thou sayest.
27:12And when he was accused of the chefe prestes & elders, he answered nothyng.
27:13Then sayeth Pilate vnto him: hearest thou not, how many witnesses they laye agaynst the?
27:14and he answered him to neuer a worde: in so moch that the debyte marueyled greatlye.
27:15At that feast, the debite was wonte to delyuer vnto the people a presoner, whom they wold desier.
27:16He had then a notable presoner, called Barrabas.
27:17Therfore, when they were gathered together, Pilate sayd: whether wil ye that I geue loosse vnto you? Barrabas, or Iesus, whych is called Chryst?
27:18For he knewe that for enuie they had delyuered him.
27:19When he was set downe to geue iudgement, his wyfe sent vnto him sayinge: haue thou nothinge to do with that iust man. For I haue suffered many thinges this daye in my slepe because of him.
27:20But the chefe prestes and the elders persuaded the people, that they shulde aske Barrabas, and destroye Iesus.
27:21The debite answered, and sayde vnto them: whether of the twayne, will ye, that I let loosse vnto you? They sayd: Barrabas.
27:22Pilate sayde vnto them: what shall I do then with Iesus whych is called Christ? They all sayd vnto him: let him be crucifyed.
27:23The debite sayde: what euyll hath he done? But they cryed the more, sayinge: let him be crucifyed.
27:24When Pilate sawe that he coulde preuayle nothinge, but that more busynes was made, he toke water, and wasshed hys handes before the people, sayinge: I am innocent of the bloud of this iust person, ye shall se.
27:25Then answered all the people, and sayd his bloud be on vs, and on oure children.
27:26Then let he Barrabas loose vnto them, and scourged Iesus, and delyuered him to be crucifyed.
27:27Then the soudeours of the debite toke Iesus in the comen hall, and gathered vnto him al the company.
27:28And they stripped him, and put on him a purpill robe,
27:29and platted a croune of thornes and put vpon his heed, and a rede in his ryght hande: and bowed the knee before him: & mocked him, saying: hayle, kyng of the Iewes:
27:30and whan they had spytt vpon him, they toke the rede, and smote him on the heed.
27:31And after that they had mocked him, they toke the roabe of him agayne, and put hys awne rayment on him, & led him awaye to crucifye him.
27:32And as they came out, they founde a man of Cyren (named Simon) him they compelled to beare his crosse.
27:33And they came vnto the place which is called Golgotha (that is to saye, a place of deed mens sculles)
27:34and gaue hym veneger to drincke myngled with gall. And when he had tasted therof, he wolde not drincke.
27:35When they had crucifyed him, they parted his garmentes, & dyd cast lottes: that it myght be fulfylled which was spoken by the Prophet. They departed my garmentes amonge them: and vpon my vesture dyd they cast lottes.
27:36And they sate and watched him there,
27:37and set vp ouer his heed the cause of hys deeth, wrytten: This is Iesus the kynge of the Iewes.
27:38Then were there two theues crucifyed with him, one on the ryght hande, and another on the lyfte.
27:39They that passed by, reuyled him, waggynge their heades,
27:40and sayinge: thou that destroydest the temple of God and dyddest bylde it in thre dayes, saue thy selfe If thou be the sonne of God, come downe from the crosse.
27:41Like wyse also the hye prestes, mocking him with the Scribes and elders sayde:
27:42He saued other, him selfe can he not saue. If he be the kynge of Israel: let him now come doune from the crosse, & we will beleue him.
27:43He trusted in God, let him delyuer him now, yf he wyll haue him: for he sayde, I am the sonne of God.
27:44The theues also, which were crucifyed with him, cast the same in his tethe.
27:45From the syxte houre was there dercknes ouer all the lande vnto the nynth houre.
27:46And about the nynth houre, Iesus cryed, wyth a loude voyce, sayinge: Eli, Eli lamasabaththany. That is to saye: my God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
27:47Some of them that stode there, when they herde that, sayde: This man calleth for Helias.
27:48And streyght waye one of them ranne, and toke a sponge, and whan he had fylled it full of veneger, he put it on a rede, and gaue him to drincke.
27:49Other sayde, let be: let vs se whether Helias will come, & delyuer him.
27:50Iesus, whan he had cried agayne wt a loude voyce, yelded vp the goost.
27:51And beholde, the vayle of the temple dyd rent in to two partes, from the toppe to the bottome, and the earth dyd quake, and the stones ren
27:52and graues dyd open: and many bodyes of sainctes which slept, arose,
27:53& went out of the graues after his resurreccyon, and came in to the holy cytie, and appeared vnto many.
27:54When the Centurion and they that were with him watchinge Iesus, sawe the erth quake, those thinges which happened, they feared greatly, saying: Trulye, this was the sonne of God.
27:55And many wemen were there (beholdinge hym a farre of) whych folowed Iesus from Galile, mynistringe vnto him.
27:56Amonge which was Mary Magdalen, and Mary the mother of Iames and Ioses, and the mother of Zebedes chyldren.
27:57When the euen was come there came a riche man of Aramathia named Ioseph, which also was Iesus disciple:
27:58He went to Pilate and begged the body of Iesus. Then Pilate commaunded the bodye to be delyuered.
27:59And whan Ioseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a cleane lynnen cloth,
27:60and layed it in hys newe tombe, whych he had hewen out, euen in the rocke, and rolled a greate stone to the dore of the sepulcre & departed.
27:61And there was Mary Magdalene and the other Mary syttynge ouer agaynste the sepulcre.
27:62The nexte daye that folowed the daye of preparinge, the hye prestes and Pharises came together vnto Pilate,
27:63sayeng: Syr, we remembre, that this deceauer sayde whyle he was yet alyue. After thre dayes I wyll aryse agayne.
27:64Commaunde therfore that the sepulcre be made sure vntyll the thyrd daye, lest hys disciples come, & steale him awaye and saye vnto the people: he is rysen from the deed, & the last errour shalbe worse then the fyrst.
27:65Pylate sayde vnto them: Ye haue the watch go your waye, make it as sure as ye can.
27:66So they went, and made the sepulcre sure with watche men, and sealed the stone.

The Great Bible 1539

The Great Bible of 1539 was the first authorized edition of the Bible in English, authorized by King Henry VIII of England to be read aloud in the church services of the Church of England. The Great Bible was prepared by Myles Coverdale, working under commission of Thomas, Lord Cromwell, Secretary to Henry VIII and Vicar General. In 1538, Cromwell directed the clergy to provide "one book of the bible of the largest volume in English, and the same set up in some convenient place within the said church that ye have care of, whereas your parishioners may most commodiously resort to the same and read it."
