And they began to salute Him, "Hail, King of the Jews." And they smote His Head with a reed: and they did spit on Him, and bowing the knees, they adored Him. And after they had mocked Him, they stripped Him of the purple, and put on Him His own garments, and they led Him forth to crucify Him.

Jesus therefore went forth carrying the crown of thorns and the purple vestment. And he saith to them, "Behold the Man."
