Judas Hangs Himself

Matthew 27

3 c Then Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had been condemned, was remorseful and brought back the thirty d pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 saying, "I have sinned by betraying innocent blood." And they said, "What is that to us? You see to it!" 5 Then he threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and e departed, and went and hanged himself. 6 But the chief priests took the silver pieces and said, "It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, because they are the price of blood." 7 And they consulted together and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in. 8 Therefore that field has been called f the Field of Blood to this day. 9 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, g "And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the value of Him who was priced, whom they of the children of Israel priced, 10 "and h gave them for the potter's field, as the LORD directed me." 1
