3 Then when aJudas, who had betrayed Him, saw that He had been condemned, he felt remorse and returned bthe thirty 1pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
4 saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” But they said, “What is that to us? aSee to that yourself!”
5 And he threw the pieces of silver into athe temple sanctuary and departed; and bhe went away and hanged himself.
6 The chief priests took the pieces of silver and said, “It is not lawful to put them into the temple treasury, since it is the price of blood.”
7 And they conferred together and 1with the money bought the Potter’s Field as a burial place for strangers.
8 aFor this reason that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day.
