2 "You know that            
after two days


It was now two days  28  Now    
  the Passover* is coming,   before the Passover*        
      and the feast of   the feast of    
      Unleavened Bread.   Unleavened Bread    
          drew near, which is called    
          the Passover.*    
  and the Son of man            
  will be delivered up            
   to be crucified."

So the chief priests  
  and the elders   and the scribes     and the scribes   and the Pharisees
  of the people            
  gathered in the palace           gathered the council,
  of the high priest,*           and said,
  who was called Ca'iaphas,*           "What are we to do?
              For this man
              performs many signs.


If we let him go on thus,
              every one will believe in him,
              and the Romans will come
              and destroy
              both our holy place
              and our nation."


But one of them, Ca'iaphas,*
              who was high priest* that year,
  and took counsel* together   were seeking   were seeking   said to them,
  in order to arrest Jesus   how to arrest him   how to*   "You know nothing at all;
  by stealth,    by stealth,        you do not understand
  and kill him;    and kill him;    put him to death;*   that it is expedient for you


But they said,


for they said,     for they     that one man should die
  "Not during the feast,   "Not during the feast,       for the people,*


lest there be a tumult


lest there be a tumult


feared   and that the whole nation
  among the people."*     of the people."*     the people.*   should not perish." ...


So from that day on
              they took counsel *
              how to put him to death.*
