Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament

Matthew 27:14

And he gave him no answer, not even to one word (kai ouk apekrith autwi prov oude en rhma).
Jesus refused to answer the charges of the Jews (verse 12). Now he continued silent under the direct question of Pilate. The Greek is very precise besides the double negative. "He did not reply to him up to not even one word." This silent dignity amazed Pilate and yet he was strangely impressed.
