|Matthew 27: 27 - 31
||Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the praetorium, and they gathered the whole battalion before him.
||And they stripped him and put a scarlet robe upon him,
||and plaiting a crown of thorns they put it on his head, and put a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him they mocked him, saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!"
||And they spat upon him, and took the reed and struck him on the head.
||And when they had mocked him, they stripped him of the robe, and put his own clothes on him, and led him away to crucify him.
