Matthew 27 verses 27-37
27: 27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.

27: 28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.

27: 29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!

27: 30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.

27: 31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.

27: 32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.

27: 33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,

27: 34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.

27: 35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

27: 36 And sitting down they watched him there;

27: 37 And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
