The history of the passion of Christ.
1 When Jesus had said these things, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where there was a garden, into which he entered with his disciples.
Haec cum dixisset Jesus, egressus est cum discipulis suis trans torrentem Cedron, ubi erat hortus, in quem introivit ipse, et discipuli ejus.
2 And Judas also, who betrayed him, knew the place; because Jesus had often resorted thither together with his disciples.
Sciebat autem et Judas, qui tradebat eum, locum : quia frequenter Jesus convenerat illuc cum discipulis suis.
3 Judas therefore having received a band of soldiers and servants from the chief priests and the Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.
Judas ergo cum accepisset cohortem, et a pontificibus et pharisaeis ministros, venit illuc cum laternis, et facibus, et armis.
4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said to them: Whom seek ye?
Jesus itaque sciens omnia quae ventura erant super eum, processit, et dixit eis : Quem quaeritis?
5 They answered him: Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith to them: I am he. And Judas also, who betrayed him, stood with them.
Responderunt ei : Jesum Nazarenum. Dicit eis Jesus : Ego sum. Stabat autem et Judas, qui tradebat eum, cum ipsis.
6 As soon therefore as he had said to them: I am he; they went backward, and fell to the ground.
Ut ergo dixit eis : Ego sum : abierunt retrorsum, et ceciderunt in terram.
7 Again therefore he asked them: Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.
Iterum ergo interrogavit eos : Quem quaeritis? Illi autem dixerunt : Jesum Nazarenum.
8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he. If therefore you seek me, let these go their way.
Respondit Jesus : Dixi vobis, quia ego sum : si ergo me quaeritis, sinite hos abire.
9 That the word might be fulfilled which he said: Of them whom thou hast given me, I have not lost any one.
Ut impleretur sermo, quem dixit : Quia quos dedisti mihi, non perdidi ex eis quemquam.
10 Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it, and struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. And the name of the servant was Malchus.
Simon ergo Petrus habens gladium eduxit eum : et percussit pontificis servum, et abscidit auriculam ejus dexteram. Erat autem nomen servo Malchus.
11 Jesus therefore said to Peter: Put up thy sword into the scabbard. The chalice which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?
Dixit ergo Jesus Petro : Mitte gladium tuum in vaginam. Calicem, quem dedit mihi Pater, non bibam illum?
12 Then the band and the tribune, and the servants of the Jews, took Jesus, and bound him:
Cohors ergo, et tribunus, et ministri Judaeorum comprehenderunt Jesum, et ligaverunt eum.
13 And they led him away to Annas first, for he was father in law to Caiphas, who was the high priest of that year.
Et adduxerunt eum ad Annam primum : erat enim socer Caiphae, qui erat pontifex anni illius.
14 Now Caiphas was he who had given the counsel to the Jews: That it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
Erat autem Caiphas, qui consilium dederat Judaeis : Quia expedit unum hominem mori pro populo.
15 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple. And that disciple was known to the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the court of the high priest.
Sequebatur autem Jesum Simon Petrus, et alius discipulus. Discipulus autem ille erat notus pontifici, et introivit cum Jesu in atrium pontificis.
16 But Peter stood at the door without. The other disciple therefore, who was known to the high priest, went out, and spoke to the portress, and brought in Peter.
Petrus autem stabat ad ostium foris. Exivit ergo discipulus alius, qui erat notus pontifici, et dixit ostiariae : et introduxit Petrum.
17 The maid therefore that was portress, saith to Peter: Art not thou also one of this man's disciples? He saith: I am not.
Dicit ergo Petro ancilla ostiaria : Numquid et tu ex discipulis es hominis istius? Dicit ille : Non sum.
18 Now the servants and ministers stood at a fire of coals, because it was cold, and warmed themselves. And with them was Peter also, standing, and warming himself.
Stabant autem servi et ministri ad prunas, quia frigus erat, et calefaciebant se : erat autem cum eis et Petrus stans, et calefaciens se.
19 The high priest therefore asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine.
Pontifex ergo interrogavit Jesum de discipulis suis, et de doctrina ejus.
20 Jesus answered him: I have spoken openly to the world: I have always taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither all the Jews resort; and in secret I have spoken nothing.
Respondit ei Jesus : Ego palam locutus sum mundo : ego semper docui in synagoga, et in templo, quo omnes Judaei conveniunt, et in occulto locutus sum nihil.
21 Why asketh thou me? ask them who have heard what I have spoken unto them: behold they know what things I have said.
Quid me interrogas? interroga eos qui audierunt quid locutus sim ipsis : ecce hi sciunt quae dixerim ego.
22 And when he had said these things, one of the servants standing by, gave Jesus a blow, saying: Answerest thou the high priest so?
Haec autem cum dixisset, unus assistens ministrorum dedit alapam Jesu, dicens : Sic respondes pontifici?
23 Jesus answered him: If I have spoken evil, give testimony of the evil; but if well, why strikest thou me?
Respondit ei Jesus : Si male locutus sum, testimonium perhibe de malo : si autem bene, quid me caedis?
24 And Annas sent him bound to Caiphas the high priest.
Et misit eum Annas ligatum ad Caipham pontificem.
25 And Simon Peter was standing, and warming himself. They said therefore to him: Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said: I am not.
Erat autem Simon Petrus stans, et calefaciens se. Dixerunt ergo ei : Numquid et tu ex discipulis ejus es? Negavit ille, et dixit : Non sum.
26 One of the servants of the high priest (a kinsman to him whose ear Peter cut off) saith to him: Did I not see thee in the garden with him?
Dicit ei unus ex servis pontificis, cognatus ejus, cujus abscidit Petrus auriculam : Nonne ego te vidi in horto cum illo?
27 Again therefore Peter denied; and immediately the cock crew.
Iterum ergo negavit Petrus : et statim gallus cantavit.
28 Then they led Jesus from Caiphas to the governor's hall. And it was morning; and they went not into the hall, that they might not be defiled, but that they might eat the pasch.
Adducunt ergo Jesum a Caipha in praetorium. Erat autem mane : et ipsi non introierunt in praetorium, ut non contaminarentur, sed ut manducarent Pascha.
29 Pilate therefore went out to them, and said: What accusation bring you against this man?
Exivit ergo Pilatus ad eos foras, et dixit : Quam accusationem affertis adversus hominem hunc?
30 They answered, and said to him: If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up to thee.
Responderunt, et dixerunt ei : Si non esset hic malefactor, non tibi tradidissemus eum.
31 Pilate therefore said to them: Take him you, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said to him: It is not lawful for us to put any man to death;
Dixit ergo eis Pilatus : Accipite eum vos, et secundum legem vestram judicate eum. Dixerunt ergo ei Judaei : Nobis non licet interficere quemquam.
32 That the word of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he said, signifying what death he should die.
Ut sermo Jesu impleretur, quem dixit, significans qua morte esset moriturus.
33 Pilate therefore went into the hall again, and called Jesus, and said to him: Art thou the king of the Jews?
Introivit ergo iterum in praetorium Pilatus : et vocavit Jesum, et dixit ei : Tu es rex Judaeorum?
34 Jesus answered: Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or have others told it thee of me?
Respondit Jesus : A temetipso hoc dicis, an alii dixerunt tibi de me?
35 Pilate answered: Am I a Jew? Thy own nation, and the chief priests, have delivered thee up to me: what hast thou done?
Respondit Pilatus : Numquid ego Judaeus sum? gens tua et pontifices tradiderunt te mihi : quid fecisti?
36 Jesus answered: My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would certainly strive that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now my kingdom is not from hence.
Respondit Jesus : Regnum meum non est de hoc mundo. Si ex hoc mundo esset regnum meum, ministri mei utique decertarent ut non traderer Judaeis : nunc autem regnum meum non est hinc.
37 Pilate therefore said to him: Art thou a king then? Jesus answered: Thou sayest that I am a king. For this was I born, and for this came I into the world; that I should give testimony to the truth. Every one that is of the truth, heareth my voice.
Dixit itaque ei Pilatus : Ergo rex es tu? Respondit Jesus : Tu dicis quia rex sum ego. Ego in hoc natus sum, et ad hoc veni in mundum, ut testimonium perhibeam veritati : omnis qui est ex veritate, audit vocem meam.
38 Pilate saith to him: What is truth? And when he said this, he went out again to the Jews, and saith to them: I find no cause in him.
Dicit ei Pilatus : Quid est veritas? Et cum hoc dixisset, iterum exivit ad Judaeos, et dicit eis : Ego nullam invenio in eo causam.
39 But you have a custom that I should release one unto you at the pasch: will you, therefore, that I release unto you the king of the Jews?
Est autem consuetudo vobis ut unum dimittam vobis in Pascha : vultis ergo dimittam vobis regem Judaeorum?
40 Then cried they all again, saying: Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
Clamaverunt ergo rursum omnes, dicentes : Non hunc, sed Barabbam. Erat autem Barabbas latro.
