And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, The Gentiles, as the Roman soldiers did; the one at the connivance, and the other by the order of their governor
and shall spit upon him; on his face, as the Syriac and Persic versions render it, and as they did; see Mark 15:19. This clause is placed by the Vulgate Latin, Arabic, and Ethiopic versions, between the two former; though, according to the order in which these things were executed, he was first scourged, then mocked, and then spit upon: all which express both the cruel and indecent usage he was to meet with:
and shall kill him, and the third day he shall rise again. The Persic version between these two clauses read, "and shall put him in a grave"; which is not in any copy of this text, nor in any other version; nor indeed was this done by the Gentiles, but by Joseph of Arimathea
