Judas Hanged Himself

Matthew 27:3-10 
Then Judas, who had betrayed Jesus, when he saw that Jesus was condemned, repented himself, and brought the thirty pieces of silver back to the chief priests and elders.

Judas: I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. 

Chief priests and elders: What is that to us? You see to that.

And Judas cast down the pieces of silver in the temple and departed and went and hanged himself (Acts 1:18 adds “and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst and all his bowels gushed out”).

And the chief priests took the silver pieces. 

Chief priests: It is not lawful to put these pieces of silver into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. 

And they took counsel and with the silver pieces bought the potter’s field to bury strangers in. Therefore that field was called, The field of blood, to this day.  

Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value, and gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord appointed me.
