Except it were given you

Then saith Pilate unto Him, ‘Speakest Thou not unto me? Knowest thou not that I have power to crucify Thee, and have power to release Thee?’
Jesus answered,
‘Thou couldest have no power against Me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered Me unto thee hath the greater sin.’ ”  John 19:10-11  (KJB)
