62 The next day, which was after the Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered together before Pilate, 63 saying: "Sir, we have called to mind that that impostor said while yet alive, 'After three days I am to be raised up' 64 Therefore command the grave to be made secure until the third day, that his disciples may never come and steal him and say to the people, 'He was raised up from the dead!' and this last imposture will be worst than the first." 65 Pilate said to them: "You have a guard. Go make it as secure as you know how." 66 So they went and made the grave secure by sealing the stone and having the guard.
