22 Pilate asked them, “What should I do then with Jesus, who is called Messiah?”

They all answered, “Crucify Him!” m n

23 Then he said, “Why? What has He done wrong?”

But they kept shouting, “Crucify Him!” all the more. o

24 When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, p but that a riot was starting instead, he took some water, washed his hands in front of the crowd, and said, “I am innocent of this man’s blood. q See to it yourselves!” r

25 All the people answered, “His blood be on us s and on our children!” 26 Then he released Barabbas to them. But after having Jesus flogged, t he handed Him over to be crucified. u
