Bible: Matthew 27:3-10

Judas’ Suicide

27:3 Now when 1  Judas, who had betrayed him, saw that Jesus 2  had been condemned, he regretted what he had done and returned the thirty silver coins to the chief priests and the elders, 27:4 saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood!” But they said, “What is that to us? You take care of it yourself! 27:5 So 3  Judas threw the silver coins into the temple and left. Then he went out and hanged himself. 27:6 The 4  chief priests took the silver and said, “It is not lawful to put this into the temple treasury, since it is blood money.” 27:7 After 5  consulting together they bought the Potter’s Field with it, as a burial place for foreigners. 27:8 For this reason that field has been called the “Field of Bloodto this day. 27:9 Then what was spoken by Jeremiah 6  the prophet was fulfilled: “They took the thirty silver coins, the price of the one whose price had been set by the people of Israel, 7  27:10 and they gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord commanded me.” 8
