Revelation 5:9-10 “And they sang a new song with these words: “You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals and open it. For you were slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. 10 And you have caused them to become a Kingdom of priests for our God. And they will reign on the earth.”

And when they had mocked Him, they took the purple robe off him, put His own clothes on Him and led Him out to crucify Him.”
