(kjv) Mar 15:1 Early in the morning the chief priests with the elders and scribes and the whole Council, immediately held a consultation; and binding Jesus, they led Him away and delivered Him to Pilate. Mar 15:1 καὶ εὐθὺς πρωῒ συμβούλιον ποιήσαντες οἱ ἀρχιερεῖς μετὰ τῶν πρεσβυτέρων καὶ γραμματέων καὶ ὅλον τὸ συνέδριον δήσαντες τὸν ἰησοῦν ἀπήνεγκαν καὶ παρέδωκαν πιλάτῳ.
Mar 15:2 And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering said unto them, Thou sayest it. (kjv) Mar 15:2 Pilate questioned Him," Are You the King of the Jews?" And He answered him," It is as you say." Mar 15:2 καὶ ἐπηρώτησεν αὐτὸν ὁ πιλᾶτος, σὺ εἶ ὁ βασιλεὺς τῶν ἰουδαίων; ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς αὐτῶ λέγει, σὺ λέγεις.
Mar 15:3 And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing. (kjv) Mar 15:3 The chief priests began to accuse Him harshly. Mar 15:3 καὶ κατηγόρουν αὐτοῦ οἱ ἀρχιερεῖς πολλά.
Mar 15:4 And Pilate asked him again, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they witness against thee. (kjv) Mar 15:4 Then Pilate questioned Him again, saying," Do You not answer? See how many charges they bring against You!" Mar 15:4 ὁ δὲ πιλᾶτος πάλιν ἐπηρώτα αὐτὸν λέγων, οὐκ ἀποκρίνῃ οὐδέν; ἴδε πόσα σου κατηγοροῦσιν.
Mar 15:5 But Jesus yet answered nothing; so that Pilate marvelled. (kjv) Mar 15:5 But Jesus made no further answer; so Pilate was amazed. Mar 15:5 ὁ δὲ ἰησοῦς οὐκέτι οὐδὲν ἀπεκρίθη, ὥστε θαυμάζειν τὸν πιλᾶτον.
Mar 15:6 Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired. (kjv) Mar 15:6 Now at the feast he used to release for them any one prisoner whom they requested. Mar 15:6 κατὰ δὲ ἑορτὴν ἀπέλυεν αὐτοῖς ἕνα δέσμιον ὃν παρῃτοῦντο.
Mar 15:7 And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.

Mar 15:8 And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them. (kjv) Mar 15:8 The crowd went up and began asking him to do as he had been accustomed to do for them. Mar 15:8 καὶ ἀναβὰς ὁ ὄχλος ἤρξατο αἰτεῖσθαι καθὼς ἐποίει αὐτοῖς.
Mar 15:9 But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews? (kjv) Mar 15:9 Pilate answered them, saying," Do you want me to release for you the King of the Jews?" Mar 15:9 ὁ δὲ πιλᾶτος ἀπεκρίθη αὐτοῖς λέγων, θέλετε ἀπολύσω ὑμῖν τὸν βασιλέα τῶν ἰουδαίων;
Mar 15:10 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy. (kjv) Mar 15:10 For he was aware that the chief priests had handed Him over because of envy. Mar 15:10 ἐγίνωσκεν γὰρ ὅτι διὰ φθόνον παραδεδώκεισαν αὐτὸν οἱ ἀρχιερεῖς.
Mar 15:11 But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them. (kjv) Mar 15:11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to ask him to release Barabbas for them instead. Mar 15:11 οἱ δὲ ἀρχιερεῖς ἀνέσεισαν τὸν ὄχλον ἵνα μᾶλλον τὸν βαραββᾶν ἀπολύσῃ αὐτοῖς.
Mar 15:12 And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews? (kjv) Mar 15:12 Answering again, Pilate said to them," Then what shall I do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?" Mar 15:12 ὁ δὲ πιλᾶτος πάλιν ἀποκριθεὶς ἔλεγεν αὐτοῖς, τί οὗν [θέλετε] ποιήσω [ὃν λέγετε] τὸν βασιλέα τῶν ἰουδαίων;
Mar 15:13 And they cried out again, Crucify him. (kjv) Mar 15:13 They shouted back," Crucify Him!" Mar 15:13 οἱ δὲ πάλιν ἔκραξαν, σταύρωσον αὐτόν.
Mar 15:14 Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him. (kjv) Mar 15:14 But Pilate said to them," Why, what evil has He done?" But they shouted all the more," Crucify Him!" Mar 15:14 ὁ δὲ πιλᾶτος ἔλεγεν αὐτοῖς, τί γὰρ ἐποίησεν κακόν; οἱ δὲ περισσῶς ἔκραξαν, σταύρωσον αὐτόν.
Mar 15:15 And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified. (kjv) Mar 15:15 Wishing to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas for them, and after having Jesus scourged, he handed Him over to be crucified. Mar 15:15 ὁ δὲ πιλᾶτος βουλόμενος τῶ ὄχλῳ τὸ ἱκανὸν ποιῆσαι ἀπέλυσεν αὐτοῖς τὸν βαραββᾶν, καὶ παρέδωκεν τὸν ἰησοῦν φραγελλώσας ἵνα σταυρωθῇ.

Mar 15:23 And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not. (kjv) Mar 15:23 They tried to give Him wine mixed with myrrh; but He did not take it. Mar 15:23 καὶ ἐδίδουν αὐτῶ ἐσμυρνισμένον οἶνον, ὃς δὲ οὐκ ἔλαβεν.

(kjv) Mar 15:39 When the centurion, who was standing right in front of Him, saw the way He breathed His last, he said," Truly this man was the Son of God!" Mar 15:39 ἰδὼν δὲ ὁ κεντυρίων ὁ παρεστηκὼς ἐξ ἐναντίας αὐτοῦ ὅτι οὕτως ἐξέπνευσεν εἶπεν, ἀληθῶς οὖτος ὁ ἄνθρωπος υἱὸς θεοῦ ἦν.
