Elegant Euphonia

“Then Herod and his soldiers ridiculed and mocked him. Dressing him in an elegant robe, they sent him back to Pilate.” (Luke 23:11 NIV)

“And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate.” (Luke 23:11 KJV)

Christ wore an elegant or gorgeous robe. They were mocking him, yet, he was very worthy of wearing an elegant robe.
