Wenceslas Hollar - The wolves and the sheep
Wenceslas Hollar – The wolves and the sheep

Luke 10:3; John 12:36 [Latin]

Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.

36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.

Ecce ego mitto vos sicut agnos inter lupos. Dum lucem habetis, credite in lucem, ut filii lucis sitis. Haec locutus est Jesus.


Ecce ego mitto vos, composed by Thomas Crecquillon (1505-1557?)

Ecce ego mitto vos

John 19:5,6,15; Matthew 27:23,17,21,22 [Latin]

Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!

When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.

15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.

23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?

21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
