13. Mocked by the Heathen Soldiers
27 aThen the governor's soldiers took Jesus into the 1bpraetorium and gathered about Him the whole cohort.
28 And they stripped Him and put a scarlet robe around Him,
29 And they wove a crown of 1athorns and placed it on His head and put a reed in His right hand; and they kneeled before Him and bmocked Him saying, 2Rejoice, King of the Jews!
30 And they aspat on Him and took the reed and beat Him on the head.
31 And when they had mocked Him, they stripped Him of the robe and put His garments on Him, and 1led Him away to crucify Him.
32 aAnd as they were going out, they found a man of 1bCyrene, Simon by name; this one they compelled to take up His cross.
