“Then Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had been condemned, was remorseful and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, saying, ‘I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.’ And they said, ‘What is that to us? You see to it!’ Then he threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and departed, and went and hanged himself” (Matthew 27:3-5 NKJV). Judas saw the Jesus condemned whom he knew was “innocent,” and was “remorseful” (a word showing pain afterward). Jesus had used this very word to show a good result: “But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, ‘Son, go, work today in my vineyard.’ “He answered and said, ‘I will not,’ but afterward he regretted it and went. (Matthew 21:28-29 NKJV). “Godly sorrow produces repentance to salvation” (2 Corinthians 7:10 NKJV).
