But when he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he gave no answer. Then Pilate said to him, “Do you not hear how many things they testify against you?” But he gave him no answer, not even to a single charge, so that the governor was greatly amazed. Matt 27:12-14

Whoever belittles his neighbor lacks sense, but a man of understanding remains silent. – Prov 11:12
