Then Judas who betrayed Jesus, when he saw that He was condemned, moved with remorse, brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, saying, "I have sinned, in betraying innocent blood." But they said, "What is it to us? See thou to that!" And throwing the pieces of silver down in the temple, he departed, and went away and hanged himself (and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out).
But the chief priests took the pieces of silver and said, "It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, since it is the price of blood." Then they held a consultation, and bought with them the potter's field, for a burial-place for strangers. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet, saying,
"And I took the thirty pieces of silver, The price of Him Who was priced, Whom they of the sons of Israel priced, And gave them for the potter's field, Even as the Lord directed me."
