Pilate Delivers Jesus to Be Crucified
When Pilate saw that he could not prevail at all, but rather that a tumult was rising, he r took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, "I am innocent of the blood of this just Person. You see to it."
And all the people answered and said, s "His blood be on us and on our children."
Then he released Barabbas to them; and when t he had scourged Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified.

Deuteronomy 21:6 - 8
And all the elders of that city nearest to the slain man shall wash their hands over the heifer whose neck was broken in the valley.
Lest innocent blood be shed in the midst of your land which the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance, and thus guilt of bloodshed be upon you.
So it shall be that whoever goes outside the doors of your house into the street, his blood shall be on his own head, and we will be guiltless. And whoever is with you in the house, his blood shall be on our head if a hand is laid on him.
2 Samuel 1:16
So David said to him, "Your blood is on your own head, for your own mouth has testified against you, saying, 'I have killed the LORD's anointed.'
1 Kings 2:32
So the LORD will return his blood on his head, because he struck down two men more righteous and better than he, and killed them with the sword - Abner the son of Ner, the commander of the army of Israel, and Amasa the son of Jether, the commander of the army of Judah - though my father David did not know it.
Saying, "Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name? And look, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man's blood on us!
