And the multitude crying aloud, began to define him to do as he had ever done unto them. But Pilate anfwered them,saying, Will ye that I release unto you the king of the Jews ( for he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy) But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.
