I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV, the following verses were given in the context of “ thirty pieces”.


Zec 11:12 And I said unto them,
If ye think good,
give me my price;
and if not, forbear.
So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.

Zec 11:13 And the LORD said unto me,
Cast it unto the potter:
a goodly price that I was prised at of them.
And I took the thirty pieces of silver,
and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD.

Mat 26:15 And said unto them,
What will ye give me,
and I will deliver him unto you?
And they covenanted with him
for thirty pieces of silver.

Mat 27:3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him,
when he saw that he was condemned,
repented himself,
and brought again the thirty pieces of silver
to the chief priests and elders,

Mat 27:4 Saying, I have sinned in that
I have betrayed the innocent blood.
And they said, What is that to us?
see thou to that.

Mat 27:9 Then was fulfilled that
which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,
And they took the thirty pieces of silver,
the price of him that was valued,
whom they of the children of Israel did value;

Mat 27:10 And gave them for the potter’s field,
as the Lord appointed me.
