Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that. (Matthew 27:4)

And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. (Matthew 27:5)

And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. (Matthew 27:6)

And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in. (Matthew 27:7)

Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day. (Matthew 27:8)
