Heart of Jesus, bruised for our sins, have mercy on us.

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that made us whole, and with his stripes we are healed.
(Isaiah 53:5)

Then he released for them Barab’bas, and having scourged Jesus, delivered him to be crucified. (Matthew 27:26)
So Pilate, wishing to satisfy the crowd, released for them Barab’bas; and having scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified. (Mark 15:15)
Then Pilate took Jesus and scourged him. (John 19:1)

The Roman punishment of scourging was carried out with a whip called a flagellum, which consisted of leather strips that had embedded shards of metal, bone and/or seashell.
