King James Bible 1611



23:1And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him vnto Pilate.
23:2And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow peruerting the nation, and forbidding to giue tribute to Cesar, saying, that he himselfe is Christ a king.
23:3And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the king of the Iewes? And he answered him, & said, Thou sayest it.
23:4Then saide Pilate to the chiefe Priests, and to the people, I finde no fault in this man.
23:5And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth vp the people, teaching thorowout all Iurie, beginning from Galilee to this place.
23:6When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilean.
23:7And assoone as he knew that hee belonged vnto Herods iurisdiction, hee sent him to Herode, who himselfe also was at Hierusalem at that time.
23:8And when Herode saw Iesus, he was exceeding glad, for hee was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him, and hee hoped to haue seene some miracle done by him.
23:9Then he questioned with him in many words, but he answered him nothing.
23:10And the chiefe Priests and Scribes stood, and vehemently accused him.
23:11And Herod with his men of warre set him at naught, and mocked him, and arayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him againe to Pilate.
23:12And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together; for before, they were at enmitie betweene themselues.
23:13And Pilate, when hee had called together the chiefe Priests, and the rulers, and the people,
23:14Said vnto them, Ye haue brought this man vnto me, as one that peruerteth the people, and behold, I hauing examined him before you, haue found no fault in this man, touching those things whereof ye accuse him.
23:15No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him, and loe, nothing worthy of death is done vnto him.
23:16I will therefore chastise him, and release him.
23:17For of necessitie hee must release one vnto them at the Feast.
23:18And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release vnto vs Barabbas,
23:19Who for a certaine sedition made in the citie, and for murder, was cast in prison.
23:20Pilate therefore willing to release Iesus, spake againe to them:
23:21But they cried, saying, Crucifie him, crucifie him.
23:22And hee said vnto them the third time, Why, what euill hath he done? I haue found no cause of death in him, I will therefore chastise him, & let him goe.
23:23And they were instant with loud voyces, requiring that he might be crucified: and the voyces of them, and of the chiefe Priests preuailed.
23:24And Pilate gaue sentence that it should be as they required.
23:25And he released vnto them, him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired, but he deliuered Iesus to their will.
23:26And as they led him away, they laid hold vpon one Simon a Cyrenian, comming out of the countrey, and on him they laid the crosse, that hee might beare it after Iesus.
23:27And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed & lamented him.
23:28But Iesus turning vnto them, said, Daughters of Hierusalem, weepe not for me, but weepe for your selues, and for your children.
23:29For beholde, the dayes are comming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that neuer bare, and the paps which neuer gaue sucke.
23:30Then shall they begin to say to the mountaines, Fall on vs, and to the hils, Couer vs.
23:31For if they doe these things in a green tree, what shalbe done in the drie?
23:32And there were also two other malefactors led with him, to bee put to death.
23:33And when they were come to the place which is called Caluarie, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.
23:34Then said Iesus, Father, forgiue them, for they know not what they doe: And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
23:35And the people stood beholding, & the rulers also with them derided him, saying, Hee saued others, let him saue himselfe, if he be Christ, ye chosen of God.
23:36And the souldiers also mocked him, comming to him, and offering him vineger,
23:37And saying, If thou be the king of the Iewes, saue thy selfe.
23:38And a superscription also was written ouer him in letters of Greeke, and Latin, & Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE IEWES.
23:39And one of ye malefactors, which were hanged, railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, saue thy selfe and vs.
23:40But the other answering, rebuked him, saying, Doest not thou feare God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
23:41And we indeed iustly; for we receiue the due reward of our deeds, but this man hath done nothing amisse.
23:42And he said vnto Iesus, Lord, remember me when thou commest into thy kingdome.
23:43And Iesus said vnto him, Uerily, I say vnto thee, to day shalt thou be with me in Paradise.
23:44And it was about the sixt houre, and there was a darkenesse ouer all the earth, vntill the ninth houre.
23:45And the Sunne was darkened, and the vaile of the temple was rent in the mids.
23:46And when Iesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: And hauing said thus, he gaue vp the ghost.
23:47Now when the Centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
23:48And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned.
23:49And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood a farre off, beholding these things.
23:50And behold, there was a man named Ioseph, a counseller, and hee was a good man, and a iust.
23:51(The same had not consented to the counsell and deede of them) he was of Arimathea, a city of the Iewes (who also himselfe waited for the kingdome of God.)
23:52This man went vnto Pilate, and begged the body of Iesus.
23:53And he tooke it downe, and wrapped it in linnen, and layd it in a Sepulchre that was hewen in stone, wherein neuer man before was layd.
23:54And that day was the Preparation, and the Sabbath drew on.
23:55And the women also which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the Sepulchre, and how his body was layd.
23:56And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments, and rested the Sabbath day, according to the commandement.

King James Bible 1611

The commissioning of the King James Bible took place at a conference at the Hampton Court Palace in London England in 1604. When King James came to the throne he wanted unity and stability in the church and state, but was well aware that the diversity of his constituents had to be considered. There were the Papists who longed for the English church to return to the Roman Catholic fold and the Latin Vulgate. There were Puritans, loyal to the crown but wanting even more distance from Rome. The Puritans used the Geneva Bible which contained footnotes that the king regarded as seditious. The Traditionalists made up of Bishops of the Anglican Church wanted to retain the Bishops Bible.

The king commissioned a new English translation to be made by over fifty scholars representing the Puritans and Traditionalists. They took into consideration: the Tyndale New Testament, the Matthews Bible, the Great Bible and the Geneva Bible. The great revision of the Bible had begun. From 1605 to 1606 the scholars engaged in private research. From 1607 to 1609 the work was assembled. In 1610 the work went to press, and in 1611 the first of the huge (16 inch tall) pulpit folios known today as "The 1611 King James Bible" came off the printing press.
