"Do you refuse to speak to me?" Pilate said. "Don't you realize I have power either to free you or to crucify you?"
King James Bible
Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
Darby Bible Translation
Pilate therefore says to him, Speakest thou not to *me*? Dost thou not know that I have authority to release thee and have authority to crucify thee?

Young's Literal Translation
Pilate, therefore, saith to him, 'To me dost thou not speak? hast thou not known that I have authority to crucify thee, and I have authority to release thee?'
John 19:10 Parallel

This answer he deemed sufficient; and he did not choose to satisfy a criminal curiosity, nor to enter then into any debate concerning the absurdity of the heathen worship.

and he went back inside the palace. "Where do you come from?" he asked Jesus, but Jesus gave him no answer.
Jesus answered, "You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin."
