And they came unto a place which was named Gethsemane and he Baitta unto his disciples, "Sit ye hen?, while I I pray And he takeili with him Peter and James and John, and hegan to be , greatly amazed, and sore troubled. And he sahh unto them. "My soul I Is exceeding sorrowful, oven unto death; abide yc here, and watch." And he went forward a little, and dfell on the ground, and prayed that if It were possible, the hour might pass . awn from him And he said "Abba, Father, all f things are possible unto the; remove j this cup from me; howbeit not what i, m I hu' what thou wilt ' And there appeared unto him an B angel from heaven, strengthening him And being in agony, he prayed more ! I earnestly, and his sweat became as "m It were great drops of blood falling IS H 00WI1 upon the ground And when he rose up from his pray 'il er, he came unto the disciple?, nnd found them sleeping for sorrow, nnd I said unto i, r Simon leepi -1 j thoir Couldst thou not watch one hour'' Watch nnd pray, that ye en B I tei" not into temptation the spirit Indeed Is willing, but the flesh is weak." Again a second time he went away j and prayed, saving, "My Father. If cannot pass away, except 1 drink it. i I thy will be done." And he came again and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy And he left them again, and went tway and prayed n third time, say- I lDg the same words. i Then cometh he to the disclplee and saith unto them, "Sleep on now. and take your rest; behold, the hour j Is n hnnrl and the" Son of man is II betrayed Into the hands of sinners, "Arise, let us be going, behold, he 59 is at hand that hetrayeth me The Betrayal and Arrest. And straightway, while he yet spake. cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and I with him a multitude with swords I and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders '. Now he that betrayed him had Riv en them a token, saying. Whottiin ever I shall kiss, that Is he; take bim. and lead him away safelv " And when he was come, straightway be came to him. and saith. "Rabbi," and kissed him But Jesus said unto him. "Judas, i betravest thou the Son of man with a kiss'" Jesus therefore knowing all the things that were coming upon him. went forth, and saith unto them, "Whom 6eek ye" They answered him, "Jesus of Naz areth." Jesus saith unto them, "1 am he." And Judaa also, who betraved him.! - was standing with them When there I fore he said unto them, "1 am he,1 they went backward, and fell to the ground. Again therefore he asked them. "Whom 6eek ye?" And they said, "Jesus of Naza , reth " Jeeus answered, "I told you that 1 am he; if therefore yo Beek me, let these go their way"; that the word might be fulfilled which ho spako, "Of those whom thou hast given me p I lost not one." And when they that were about him saw what would follow, they Bald, "Lord, shall we smite with the sword" Simon Peter therefore having a bwotI drew it, and struck the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. Now the servant's name was Mnlchus. But Jesus answered and 6ald, "Put P again thy sword into Its place for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword Or thinkest thou that I cannot beseech my Fa ther and he shall even now send j me more than twelve legions of an gels" How then should the scrlp tures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? The cup which the Father hath given mo, shall I not drink It?" And Jesus said unto the chief ! priests and captains of the temple. I and elders, that were come against ! him. "Are ye come out as against a robber, with swords and Btavi When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched not forth your hands against me; but this Is your hour, and the power of darkness." Then all the disciples left him, and fled 1 And a certain young man followed with him. having a linen cloth cast about him. over his naked body; and they lav hold on him; but he left the j linen cloth, and fled naked The Trial Before the Jewish Authori ties. So the band and the chief captain, i and the officers of the Jews, seized Jesus and bound him, and led him to Annas first; for he was father In law lo L'aiaphas. who wns high priest that year. Now Caiaphas was he that gave counsel to the Jews, that K was expedient that one man should die for the people. And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple. Now that disciple was known unto the high priest, and entered in with Jesus into the court of the high priest; but Peter was standing at the door with out. So tho oth"r disciple, who was known unto the high prlet, went out and spake unto her that kept the door, anil brought in Peter The maid therefore that kept the door saith unto Peter, "Art thou also one of this man's disciples''" He saith. "I am not " Now the servants and the officers were standing there, bpvlng made a fire of coals; for It was cold; and thev wero warming themselves; and Peter also was with them standing and warming himself The high priest therefore asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his teaching. Jesus answered h!m, "I have spoken openly to the world; I over taught in synagogues, and In the temple, where all the Jews come to- gether; and in secret spake I noth ing. Why askest thou me1 Ask them that have heard me. what Ii spake unto them, behold, these know the things which I said." And when he had said this, one of ' the officers standing by struck Jesus with his baud, saying. "Answerest thou the high priest so"" Jesus answered him, "If I have spo ken ell. bear witness of the evil; but j If well, why ami test thou me?" Annas therefore sent him bound un to C'alaphas the high priest Now the chief priests and the whole council sought witness against Jesus to put him to death, and found It hot. For many bare false witness against him, and their w itness agreed not together And there stood up cer tain, and bare false witness aguinst him, saying, "We heard hlra say. I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and In three days l will build another made, without hands." And not even so did their witness agree together And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, "Answerest thou nothing? What is It which these witness against thee?" But ho held his peace, and answered nothing. And the high priest said unto him, "I adjure thee by the living God. that thou tell whether thou art the Christ, the Son of God." And Jesus said.

And they all condemned him to be worthy of death. Then did they spit In Mr face and buffet him. And they blindfolded him and smote him with the palms of their hands. Baying, "Prophesy un to us, thou Christ who is he that struck thee'" The Denial of Peter. And as Peter was beneath In the court, there cometh one of the maids of the high priest; and seeing Peter warming himself, she looked upon him nnd saith. "Thou also wast with the Nazarenc, even Jesus." But ho denied saying, "I neither know nor understand what thou say est," and he went out Into the porch, j and the cock crew. And after a little while they that stood by came and said to Pe'er. ! "Of a truth thou also art one of them; for thy speech maketh theel known." Then began he to curse and to swear ' I know not the man." And .straightway the cock crew. And Mir l.or.l turned, and looked up on Piter Vnd Petei remembered the' word of the Lord, how that he said unto him, "Before the cock crow twice thou shalt deny me thrice." And he went out. and wept bitterly. And straightway in the morning the; chief priests with the elders and scribes, and the w hole council, held , a consultation, and hound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him up to Pilate, the governor. The Remorse of Judas. Then Judas, who betrayed him. when he saw that he was condemn ed repented himself, and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, saying,' "I have sinned in that I betrayed In-! nocent blood." But they said. "What is that to us? see t nou to it. And he cast down the pieces of silver Into the sanctuary, and depart ed; and he went awav and hanged himself. And the chief priests took the pieces of silver, and said. "It is not lawful j to put them into the treasury, since it is the pre of blood " And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers In. Wherefore thru field was called "The field of blood " unto this day. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken through Jeremiah tne proph et, saying. "And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of hlra that wac priced, whom certain of the children of Israel did price; and they gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord appointed me." The Trial Before Pilate They led Jesus therefore from Caia phas into the Praetorium; and it was early; and they themselves entered1 not into the Praetorium, that the:, might not be defiled, but mleht eat the passover. Pilate therefore went I out unto them, and saith. "What accu Batlon bring yc against this man?" They answered and 6ald unto him, "If this man were not an evil-doer, we should not have delivered him up Unto thee." PUate therefore said unto them. "Take him yourselves, and Judge him according to your law." The Jews said unto him. "It Is not : lawful for us to put any man to' death"; that tho word of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signi fying by what manner of death he j should die. And they began to accuse him, say ing, "We found this man pervert Ing our nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, and saying that he himself Is Christ a king r And when he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing Then saith Pilate unto him, "Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?" And he gave him no answer not even to one word insomuch that the governoi marveled greatly. Pilau- therefore entered again Into the Praetorium and called Jesus, and said unto him, "Art thou the King ol the Jews'" Jesus answered. "Saest thou this of thyself, or did others tell it thee con cerning me?" Pilate answered. "Am I a Jew"" Thine own nation andthe chief priest delivered thee unto me; what hast thou done?" Jesus answered. "My kingdom Is not of this world- If my kingdom I were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now Is my I kingdom not from hence." Pilate therefore 6ald unto him, "Art j thou a king then?" Jesus answered. "Thou sayest that I am a king To this end have I been I born, and to this end am I come Into tho world, that 1 hhould bear witnesH I unto the truth Every one that Is of the truth heareth my voice." Pilate saith unto him. ' What Is truth?" And when he said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and salth unto them, "I find no crime in him." But they were the more urgent, j saying, "He stlrreth up the people,' I teaching throughout all Judaea, and beginning from Galilee, even unto this place." But when PUate heard it, he asked 1 I whether the man were a OsUIaean .1 And when he knew that he was ofi IHerod s Jurisdiction, he sent him unto I Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem in these days. Jesus Before Herod. Now when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad; for he va6 of a long! tiinr desirous lo see him. because he had heard concerning him, and he hoped to see some ralraclo done by him. And ho questioned him In many words; but he answered him nothing And the chief priests, and the scribes stood, vehemently accusing hloi And Herod with his soldiers set him ati nought and mocked him. and ar raying him In gorgeous apparel sent him hict to Pilate And Herod and Pilate became friends with each other that vetv day: for before they were at enmitv between themselves. The Trial Before Pilate Resumed Vnd Pilate called together the chief priests and the rulers and the peo ple, and said unto them. "Ye brought unto ms this man, as one that per vrrteth the people- an,i hehold I lin ing examined him before von found no fault In this man touching those things whereof ye accuse hlnv no nor yet Herod I for he sent htm hack unto us; and hehold. nothing worthv of desth hath heon done by him I will therefore chastise him; and re lease him " Now at the feast the governor was I wont to release unto the multitude I lone prisoner, called Barabbas lying Jhound with them that had made In surrection, men who n the insur rection had committed murder And the multitude went up and began to nsk him to do as he was wont to do unto them And Pilate answered them saving Will ve that I release unto vou the King of the .Tews"" For he perceived that for envy tho chief priests had delivered him up Now the chief priests and the eld ers persuaded the multitudes that they should ask for Barabbas. and: destroy Jesus. But the governor answered and said unto them ' Which of the two will ve ! that I release unto you'' And thoy said, 'Barabbas." Pilate salth unto them. "What then Bhall I do vrato Jesus who is called Christ'" Thev all say, "Let him be cruel- I fied " And he said unto them a third time "Why, what evil hath this man done T have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise and release him Thsfl Pilate therefore took Jrs and scourged him. And) (lie soldiers led him awav with- ' in the court, which is the Praetorium; , and they call together the whole band. nd the snipped him, and arrayed him in a purple garment An i the;, platted a crown Of thorns and put It men his head, and a reed In his right hand; and thev kneeled down before him. anl mocked him. saying: '"Hail, j King of the Jew?'" and they struck him with their hands. nd thev spat upon him. and took the reed and smote him upon the head And Pilate went out again, and salth unto them, "Behold, I bring him out to you. that ye may know that I j find no crime In him " Jesus therefore came out. wearing the cron of thorns and the purple; garment. And Pilate saith unto them,. iennm, t no man When therefore the chief priests nnd the officers saw him. they cried out, saying. "Crucify him, cruri Tv him'" Pilate salth unto them. "Take him yourselves, and crucify him: for I find (no crime in hlra." The Tews answered him. ' We have a 'r. w. and by thnt law he ought to ;dle because he made himself the Son of Cod." When PUate therefore heard this Baying, he was the more afraid: and he entere, Into the Praetorium again, rnd salth unto Tesus, "Whence art thou?" But Jesus gave him no answer Pilate therefore saith unto him, "Speakest thou not unto me? Know I est thou not that I hae power to release thee, and have power to cru cify tbeo?" lesus answered him. "Thou would est have no power ngainst me. except It were given thee from shove there fore he that delivered me unto thee hath greater sin I'pon this Pilate sought to release him' but the Jews cried out, saying. ''If thou release this man. thou art not Cae6ar's friend: every one that maketh himself a king speaketb against CaeBar." When Pilate therfore heard tho-e words, he brought Jesus out, and sat down on the Judgment-scat at a place called The Pavement, but In Hebrew, Gab hatha. And while he was sitting on the Udgmsnt-SSat, his wife sent unto him salnsr. "Have tho'i nnthlnc to do with i that righteous man; for I have suf fered raunv things this day In a dream because of him " Now It was the Preparation of the 'passover: It was about the sixth hour And he salth unto the Jews, ' Behold, our King." Thev therefore cried out, "Awav with him, away with him, crucify ! him ' " PUate saith unto them. "Shall I cru cify your King''" The chief priests answered, "We h:ve no king hut Caesar" So when PUate saw that he pre vailed nothing, but rather that a tumult was arising, he took water, land washed bis hands before the mul titude, saying, "I am innocent of the blood of this righteous man; see ve 'to H " And all the people answered and M "His blood be on us, and on our children." And thev were urgent with loud voices askint: that he might be cru cified vnd their olceg prevailed And Pilate, wishing to content the NEW SPRING SUITS g j I Words can hardly do justice to these exquisite new spring aawfffi I suits that we are featuring.

And when they had mocked him. the took off from him the robe, and put on him his parmonts, and led I him away to crucify him The Sorrovful Way. Thev took .lesus therefore and he' went out, bejrlng the cross for him self And as they came out, they laid hold upon one Simon of Tyrone, the father of Alexander and Rufus. who wns passing by. comlnK from the country, him they compelled to go with them and laid on him tho cross, iliat he might hear it after Jesus. And there followed him a great mul titude of the people, and of women who bewailed and lamente l him Hut Jesus turning unto them said. I "Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not ' for me, but weep for yourselves, and1 j for your children For lehold. the das are coming. In which they ihall ' say. Rlessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the I breasts that never gave suck ' Then I shall they begin to sa to the moun tains, 'Fall on us'; and to the hills, 'CoVST us." For If they do these thlng; In the green tree, what shall be done In the dry ?" Nnd there were also two others, malefactors, led with him to be put to death. The Crucifixion. And when they were come unto a idace called Oolgotha. that is to say. The place of a skull, they gave him wine to drink mingled with gill and when he had tasted it, ho would not drink There they crucified him. and the malefactors, one on the right hand i an d the other on the left. And Jesus said. Father, forgive ;them; for they know not what they do." And Pilate wrote a title also, and i put It on the cross. And there was j written : , Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews. This title therefore read many of the Jews for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city; and It was written In Hebrew, and in Latin, and In Greek The chief priests of the Tews there fore said to Pilate. Write not. 'The (King of the Jews.' but that he said. 'I am King of the Jews'" PUate answered. "What I have v. rit ten I hao written " The soldiers therefore when thSf hnd crucified Jesus, took his garments and made four parts, to every soldier B part; and also the coat, now the coat wa without seam, woven from the top throughout They said there fore one to another, "let us not rend It. but cast lots for it, whose It shall be", that the ecripturo might be fulfilled, which salth, "They parted my garments among them, And upon my vesture did they ca?t lots." These things therefore the soldiers did; and they sat and watched him there. And the people stood beholding. And thev that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and say ing "Thou that destroyest the tem ple, and bnildest It In three days, save thy -elf if thou art the son of Cod come down from the cross.'' In like manner also, the chief priests mocking him. with the scribes nnd elders, said He saved others: himself he cannot gve. Let the Christ, the King of Israel, now come down from the cross, that we rnav see and believe. He trusteth on Clod, let him deliver him now. If he desir eth him: for he said, 1 am the son of God." And one of the malefactors that wert hanged railed on him. saying. "Art not thou the Christ? Save thy tself and us." But the other answered, and re buking him said Dost thou not even real God. seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we Indeed Just ly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done n iililng amiss '' And he said. Jesus remember me when thou comest In thy kingdom." And he said unto him, "Verily I say nnlo thee. To lav shalt thou be with me In Paradise ' But there were standing by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's slater, Mary the wife of Cleopas. and Mary Magdalene When Jesus therefore saw his mother, nnd the disciple standing bv whom he loed. he salth unto his mother. "Woman, behold thy son'" Then salth he to the disciple. "Be hold hy mother!" And from that hour the disciple took her unto his own home. And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice. "Elol. Elol. lama sabachthani"" which Is. being interpreted. "My God, my God. why hast thou forsaken me?" And some of them that stood by. when thov heard It, said, "Behold, he calleth' Elijah."

And Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, "Father, into thy hands 1 commend my spirit" and having said ! this, he gave up the ghost. And behold, the veil of th temple I "was rent In two from the top to the bottom and the earth did quake; and the rocks were rent: and the tombs wore opened; and many bodies of the f paint-; thnt had fallen asleep were raised; and coming forth out of the t tombs after his resurrection they en- I tered into the holy city and appeared Onto many Now the centurion, and they that I wore with him watching Jesus, when tuev saw the earthquake, and the ! thl n that were dn, ff-ared exceed inclv. saying.
