56 For many gave afalse testimony against Him, yet the testimonies were not consistent.
57 And asome stood up and testified falsely against Him, saying,
59 And neither in this regard was their testimony consistent.
60 And the high priest stood up in the midst and questioned Jesus, saying, Do You not answer anything? What is this that these testify against You?
67 And seeing Peter warming himself, she looked at him and said, You also were with the aNazarene, Jesus.
68 But he denied it, saying, I neither know nor understand what you are talking about. And he went outside into the forecourt, and a rooster crowed.
69 And the servant girl, seeing him, began again to say to those standing by, This man is one of them!
71 But he began to 1curse and to swear, I do not know this man of whom you speak!
72 And aimmediately a brooster crowed a second time. And Peter remembered the word, how Jesus had said to him, Before a rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times. And thinking upon it, he wept.

1 And aimmediately in the morning the bchief priests held a cconsultation with the elders and scribes and the whole 1Sanhedrin, and having bound Jesus, they led Him away and ddelivered Him to 2ePilate.
3 And the chief priests aaccused Him of many things.
4 And Pilate again questioned Him, saying, Do You answer nothing? See how many things they are accusing You of.
6 Now at the afeasts he released to them one prisoner whom they requested.
8 And the crowd 1came up and began to ask him to do even as he had been accustomed to do for them.
9 But Pilate answered them, saying, Do you want me to release to you the aKing of the Jews?
10 For he knew that it was because of envy that the chief priests had delivered Him up.
11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd that instead he should arelease Barabbas to them.
12 And Pilate again answered and said to them, What then do you want me to do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?
14 But Pilate said to them, Why, what evil has He done? But they cried out the more, Crucify Him!
