“And shal deliuer him to the Gentiles to mocke, and to scourge, and to crucifie him: and the third day he shall rise againe.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
Mt 20:19 Shall deliver him to the Gentiles. The Sanhedrin could condemn, but had no power to inflict capital punishment, because the government had passed into the hands of the Romans--a Gentile race. To mock, and to scourge. For comment on these words, see Mt 27:26-31. The third day. This expression, which occurs often, shows the sense in which the Jews understood the corresponding phrase, "three days and three nights".
