The continuation of the history of the passion of Christ. His death and burial.

[1] And when morning was come, all the chief priests and ancients of the people took counsel against Jesus, that they might put him to death.
Mane autem facto, consilium inierunt omnes principes sacerdotum et seniores populi adversus Jesum, ut eum morti traderent.

[2] And they brought him bound, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
Et vinctum adduxerunt eum, et tradiderunt Pontio Pilato praesidi.

[3] Then Judas, who betrayed him, seeing that he was condemned, repenting himself, brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and ancients,
Tunc videns Judas, qui eum tradidit, quod damnatus esset, poenitentia ductus, retulit triginta argenteos principibus sacerdotum, et senioribus,

[4] Saying: I have sinned in betraying innocent blood. But they said: What is that to us? look thou to it.
dicens : Peccavi, tradens sanguinem justum. At illi dixerunt : Quid ad nos? tu videris.

[5] And casting down the pieces of silver in the temple, he departed: and went and hanged himself with an halter.
Et projectis argenteis in templo, recessit : et abiens laqueo se suspendit.

[6] But the chief priests having taken the pieces of silver, said: It is not lawful to put them into the corbona, because it is the price of blood.
Principes autem sacerdotum, acceptis argenteis, dixerunt : Non licet eos mittere in corbonam : quia pretium sanguinis est.

[7] And after they had consulted together, they bought with them the potter's field, to be a burying place for strangers.
Consilio autem inito, emerunt ex illis agrum figuli, in sepulturam peregrinorum.

[8] For this cause the field was called Haceldama, that is, The field of blood, even to this day.
Propter hoc vocatus est ager ille, Haceldama, hoc est, Ager sanguinis, usque in hodiernum diem.

[9] Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremias the prophet, saying: And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was prized, whom they prized of the children of Israel.
Tunc impletum est quod dictum est per Jeremiam prophetam, dicentem : Et acceperunt triginta argenteos pretium appretiati, quem appretiaverunt a filiis Israel :

[10] And they gave them unto the potter's field, as the Lord appointed to me.
et dederunt eos in agrum figuli, sicut constituit mihi Dominus.

[11] And Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, saying: Art thou the king of the Jews? Jesus saith to him: Thou sayest it.
Jesus autem stetit ante praesidem, et interrogavit eum praeses, dicens : Tu es rex Judaeorum? Dicit illi Jesus : Tu dicis.

[12] And when he was accused by the chief priests and ancients, he answered nothing.
Et cum accusaretur a principibus sacerdotum et senioribus, nihil respondit.

[13] Then Pilate saith to him: Dost not thou hear how great testimonies they allege against thee?
Tunc dicit illi Pilatus : Non audis quanta adversum te dicunt testimonia?

[14] And he answered him to never a word; so that the governor wondered exceedingly.
Et non respondit ei ad ullum verbum, ita ut miraretur praeses vehementer.

[44] And the selfsame thing the thieves also, that were crucified with him, reproached him with.
Idipsum autem et latrones, qui crucifixi erant cum eo, improperabant ei.

[45] Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over the whole earth, until the ninth hour.
A sexta autem hora tenebrae factae sunt super universam terram usque ad horam nonam.

[46] And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying: Eli, Eli, lamma sabacthani? that is, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
Et circa horam nonam clamavit Jesus voce magna, dicens : Eli, Eli, lamma sabacthani? hoc est : Deus meus, Deus meus, ut quid dereliquisti me?

[47] And some that stood there and heard, said: This man calleth Elias.
Quidam autem illic stantes, et audientes, dicebant : Eliam vocat iste.

[48] And immediately one of them running took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar; and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
Et continuo currens unus ex eis, acceptam spongiam implevit aceto, et imposuit arundini, et dabat ei bibere.

[49] And the others said: Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to deliver him.
Ceteri vero dicebant : Sine, videamus an veniat Elias liberans eum.

[50] And Jesus again crying with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
Jesus autem iterum clamans voce magna, emisit spiritum.

[51] And behold the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top even to the bottom, and the earth quaked, and the rocks were rent.
Et ecce velum templi scissum est in duas partes a summo usque deorsum : et terra mota est, et petrae scissae sunt,

[52] And the graves were opened: and many bodies of the saints that had slept arose,
et monumenta aperta sunt : et multa corpora sanctorum, qui dormierant, surrexerunt.

[53] And coming out of the tombs after his resurrection, came into the holy city, and appeared to many.
Et exeuntes de monumentis post resurrectionem ejus, venerunt in sanctam civitatem, et apparuerunt multis.

[54] Now the centurion and they that were with him watching Jesus, having seen the earthquake, and the things that were done, were sore afraid, saying: Indeed this was the Son of God.
Centurio autem, et qui cum eo erant, custodientes Jesum, viso terraemotu, et his quae fiebant, timuerunt valde, dicentes : Vere Filius Dei erat iste.

[55] And there were there many women afar off, who had followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:
Erant autem ibi mulieres multae a longe, quae secutae erant Jesum a Galilaea, ministrantes ei :

[56] Among whom was Mary Magdalen, and Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.
inter quas erat Maria Magdalene, et Maria Jacobi, et Joseph mater, et mater filiorum Zebedaei.

[57] And when it was evening, there came a certain rich man of Arimathea, named Joseph, who also himself was a disciple of Jesus.
Cum autem sero factum esset, venit quidam homo dives ab Arimathaea, nomine Joseph, qui et ipse discipulus erat Jesu :

[58] He went to Pilate, and asked the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded that the body should be delivered.
hic accessit ad Pilatum, et petiit corpus Jesu. Tunc Pilatus jussit reddi corpus.

[59] And Joseph taking the body, wrapped it up in a clean linen cloth.
Et accepto corpore, Joseph involvit illud in sindone munda,

[60] And laid it in his own new monument, which he had hewed out in a rock. And he rolled a great stone to the door of the monument, and went his way.
et posuit illud in monumento suo novo, quod exciderat in petra. Et advolvit saxum magnum ad ostium monumenti, et abiit.

[61] And there was there Mary Magdalen, and the other Mary sitting over against the sepulchre.
Erant autem ibi Maria Magdalene, et altera Maria, sedentes contra sepulchrum.

[62] And the next day, which followed the day of preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees came together to Pilate,
Altera autem die, quae est post Parasceven, convenerunt principes sacerdotum et pharisaei ad Pilatum,

[63] Saying: Sir, we have remembered, that that seducer said, while he was yet alive: After three days I will rise again.
dicentes : Domine, recordati sumus, quia seductor ille dixit adhuc vivens : Post tres dies resurgam.

[64] Command therefore the sepulchre to be guarded until the third day: lest perhaps his disciples come and steal him away, and say to the people: He is risen from the dead; and the last error shall be worse than the first.
Jube ergo custodiri sepulchrum usque in diem tertium : ne forte veniant discipuli ejus, et furentur eum, et dicant plebi : Surrexit a mortuis : et erit novissimus error pejor priore.

[65] Pilate saith to them: You have a guard; go, guard it as you know.
Ait illis Pilatus : Habetis custodiam, ite, custodite sicut scitis.

[66] And they departing, made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting guards.
Illi autem abeuntes, munierunt sepulchrum, signantes lapidem, cum custodibus.
