Matthew 27:66
Context
The Guard at the Tomb

62Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together to Pilate, 63Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again. 64Command therefore that the sepulcher be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say to the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first. 65Pilate said to them, You have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as you can. 66So they went, and made the sepulcher sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.
