28 b Then they led Jesus from Caiaphas to the Praetorium, and it was early morning. c But they themselves did not go into the 1 Praetorium, lest they should be defiled, but that they might eat the Passover. 29 d Pilate then went out to them and said, "What accusation do you bring against this Man?" 30 They answered and said to him, "If He were not 2 an evildoer, we would not have delivered Him up to you." 31 Then Pilate said to them, "You take Him and judge Him according to your law." Therefore the Jews said to him, "It is not lawful for us to put anyone to death," 32 e that the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled which He spoke, f signifying by what death He would die.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
