7:1Now it happened, when the wall was built, and I had set up the doors, and the porters and the singers and the Levites were appointed, 7:2that I gave my brother Hanani, and Hananiah the governor of the castle, charge over Jerusalem; for he was a faithful man, and feared God above many. 7:3I said to them, Don't let the gates of Jerusalem be opened until the sun be hot; and while they stand on guard, let them shut the doors, and bar you them: and appoint watches of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, everyone in his watch, and everyone to be over against his house. 7:4Now the city was wide and large; but the people were few therein, and the houses were not built. 7:5My God put into my heart to gather together the nobles, and the rulers, and the people, that they might be reckoned by genealogy. I found the book of the genealogy of those who came up at the first, and I found written therein: 7:6These are the children of the province, who went up out of the captivity of those who had been carried away, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away, and who returned to Jerusalem and to Judah, everyone to his city; 7:7who came with Zerubbabel, Jeshua, Nehemiah, Azariah, Raamiah, Nahamani, Mordecai, Bilshan, Mispereth, Bigvai, Nehum, Baanah. The number of the men of the people of Israel: 7:8The children of Parosh, two thousand one hundred seventy-two. 7:9The children of Shephatiah, three hundred seventy-two. 7:10The children of Arah, six hundred fifty-two. 7:11The children of Pahath-moab, of the children of Jeshua and Joab, two thousand eight hundred and eighteen. 7:12The children of Elam, one thousand two hundred fifty-four. 7:13The children of Zattu, eight hundred forty-five. 7:14The children of Zaccai, seven hundred sixty. 7:15The children of Binnui, six hundred forty-eight. 7:16The children of Bebai, six hundred twenty-eight. 7:17The children of Azgad, two thousand three hundred twenty-two. 7:18The children of Adonikam, six hundred sixty-seven. 7:19The children of Bigvai, two thousand sixty-seven. 7:20The children of Adin, six hundred fifty-five. 7:21The children of Ater, of Hezekiah, ninety-eight. 7:22The children of Hashum, three hundred Twenty-eight. 7:23The children of Bezai, three hundred twenty-four. 7:24The children of Hariph, one hundred twelve. 7:25The children of Gibeon, ninety-five. 7:26The men of Bethlehem and Netophah, one hundred eighty-eight. 7:27The men of Anathoth, one hundred twenty-eight. 7:28The men of Beth Azmaveth, forty-two. 7:29The men of Kiriath Jearim, Chephirah, and Beeroth, seven hundred forty-three. 7:30The men of Ramah and Geba, six hundred twenty-one. 7:31The men of Michmas, one hundred and twenty-two. 7:32The men of Bethel and Ai, a hundred twenty-three. 7:33The men of the other Nebo, fifty-two. 7:34The children of the other Elam, one thousand two hundred fifty-four. 7:35The children of Harim, three hundred twenty. 7:36The children of Jericho, three hundred forty-five. 7:37The children of Lod, Hadid, and Ono, seven hundred twenty-one. 7:38The children of Senaah, three thousand nine hundred thirty. 7:39The priests: The children of Jedaiah, of the house of Jeshua, nine hundred seventy-three. 7:40The children of Immer, one thousand fifty-two. 7:41The children of Pashhur, one thousand two hundred forty-seven. 7:42The children of Harim, one thousand and seventeen. 7:43The Levites: the children of Jeshua, of Kadmiel, of the children of Hodevah, seventy-four. 7:44The singers: the children of Asaph, one hundred forty-eight. 7:45The porters: the children of Shallum, the children of Ater, the children of Talmon, the children of Akkub, the children of Hatita, the children of Shobai, one hundred thirty-eight. 7:46The Nethinim: the children of Ziha, the children of Hasupha, the children of Tabbaoth, 7:47the children of Keros, the children of Sia, the children of Padon, 7:48the children of Lebana, the children of Hagaba, the children of Salmai, 7:49the children of Hanan, the children of Giddel, the children of Gahar, 7:50the children of Reaiah, the children of Rezin, the children of Nekoda, 7:51the children of Gazzam, the children of Uzza, the children of Paseah. 7:52The children of Besai, the children of Meunim, the children of Nephushesim, 7:53the children of Bakbuk, the children of Hakupha, the children of Harhur, 7:54the children of Bazlith, the children of Mehida, the children of Harsha, 7:55the children of Barkos, the children of Sisera, the children of Temah, 7:56the children of Neziah, the children of Hatipha. 7:57The children of Solomon's servants: the children of Sotai, the children of Sophereth, the children of Perida, 7:58the children of Jaala, the children of Darkon, the children of Giddel, 7:59the children of Shephatiah, the children of Hattil, the children of Pochereth-hazzebaim, the children of Amon. 7:60All the Nethinim, and the children of Solomon's servants, were three hundred ninety-two. 7:61These were those who went up from Tel-melah, Tel Harsha, Cherub, Addon, and Immer; but they could not show their fathers' houses, nor their seed, whether they were of Israel: 7:62The children of Delaiah, the children of Tobiah, the children of Nekoda, six hundred forty-two. 7:63Of the priests: the children of Hobaiah, the children of Hakkoz, the children of Barzillai, who took a wife of the daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite, and was called after their name. 7:64These sought their register among those who were reckoned by genealogy, but it was not found: therefore were they deemed polluted and put from the priesthood. 7:65The governor said to them, that they should not eat of the most holy things, until there stood up a priest with Urim and Thummim. 7:66The whole assembly together was forty-two thousand three hundred sixty, 7:67besides their men-servants and their maid-servants, of whom there were seven thousand three hundred thirty-seven: and they had two hundred forty-five singing men and singing women. 7:68Their horses were seven hundred thirty-six; their mules, two hundred forty-five; 7:69their camels, four hundred thirty-five; their donkeys, six thousand seven hundred twenty. 7:70Some from among the heads of fathers' houses gave to the work. The governor gave to the treasury one thousand darics of gold, fifty basins, and five hundred thirty priests' garments. 7:71Some of the heads of fathers' houses gave into the treasury of the work twenty thousand darics of gold, and two thousand two hundred minas of silver. 7:72That which the rest of the people gave was twenty thousand darics of gold, and two thousand minas of silver, and sixty-seven priests' garments. 7:73So the priests, and the Levites, and the porters, and the singers, and some of the people, and the Nethinim, and all Israel, lived in their cities. When the seventh month was come, the children of Israel were in their cities.
15:1Immediately in the morning the chief priests, with the elders and scribes, and the whole council, held a consultation, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him up to Pilate. 15:2Pilate asked him, "Are you the King of the Jews?"
He answered, "So you say."
15:5But Jesus made no further answer, so that Pilate marveled.
15:6Now at the feast he used to release to them one prisoner, whom they asked of him. 15:7There was one called Barabbas, bound with those who had made insurrection, men who in the insurrection had committed murder. 15:8The multitude, crying aloud, began to ask him to do as he always did for them. 15:9Pilate answered them, saying, "Do you you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?" 15:10For he perceived that for envy the chief priests had delivered him up. 15:11But the chief priests stirred up the multitude, that he should release Barabbas to them instead. 15:12Pilate again asked them, "What then should I do to him whom you call the King of the Jews?"
15:13They cried out again, "Crucify him!"
15:14Pilate said to them, "Why, what evil has he done?"
But they cried out exceedingly, "Crucify him!"
15:15Pilate, wishing to please the multitude, released Barabbas to them, and handed over Jesus, when he had flogged him, to be crucified. 15:16The soldiers led him away within the court, which is the Praetorium; and they called together the whole cohort. 15:17They clothed him with purple, and weaving a crown of thorns, they put it on him. 15:18They began to salute him, "Hail, King of the Jews!" 15:19They struck his head with a reed, and spat on him, and bowing their knees, did homage to him. 15:20When they had mocked him, they took the purple off of him, and put his own garments on him. They led him out to crucify him. 15:21They compelled one passing by, coming from the country, Simon of Cyrene, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to go with them, that he might bear his cross. 15:22They brought him to the place called Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, "The place of a skull." 15:23They offered him wine mixed with myrrh to drink, but he didn't take it.
15:24Crucifying him, they parted his garments among them, casting lots on them, what each should take. 15:25It was the third hour, and they crucified him. 15:26The superscription of his accusation was written over him, "THE KING OF THE JEWS." 15:27With him they crucified two robbers; one on his right hand, and one on his left. 15:28The Scripture was fulfilled, which says, "He was numbered with transgressors."
15:31Likewise, also the chief priests mocking among themselves with the scribes said, "He saved others. He can't save himself. 15:32Let the Christ, the King of Israel, now come down from the cross, that we may see and believe him." Those who were crucified with him insulted him.
15:33When the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. 15:34At the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?" which is, being interpreted, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"
15:35Some of those who stood by, when they heard it, said, "Behold, he is calling Elijah."
15:36One ran, and filling a sponge full of vinegar, put it on a reed, and gave it to him to drink, saying, "Let him be. Let's see whether Elijah comes to take him down."
15:37Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and gave up the spirit. 15:38The veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom. 15:39When the centurion, who stood by opposite him, saw that he cried out like this and breathed his last, he said, "Truly this man was the Son of God!"
15:40There were also women watching from afar, among whom were both Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome; 15:41who, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and served him; and many other women who came up with him to Jerusalem.
15:42When evening had now come, because it was the Preparation Day, that is, the day before the Sabbath, 15:43Joseph of Arimathaea, a prominent council member who also himself was looking for the Kingdom of God, came. He boldly went in to Pilate, and asked for Jesus' body. 15:44Pilate marveled if he were already dead; and summoning the centurion, he asked him whether he had been dead long. 15:45When he found out from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph. 15:46He bought a linen cloth, and taking him down, wound him in the linen cloth, and laid him in a tomb which had been cut out of a rock. He rolled a stone against the door of the tomb. 15:47Mary Magdalene and Mary, the mother of Joses, saw where he was laid.
