"Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself..." (Matthew 27:3)

There was a man who began to speak, and as he continued, it was perceived that what he was saying was to speak of Jesus in jest. As he continued to speak, the spirit in the room became noticeably different. He began to speak with awareness to this, hesitantly, with reserve and calculation; yet, like he wanted to continue, but felt he should not. He somehow finished without proceding beyond that spirit that was there, but with a spirit that was still joined to what he was saying.

And at least one in the room wanted him to not continue, not for their self, but for his self. They did not want to see him so denude himself before all; all the while, he seeing himself "savoir faire" dressed.

He repented himself. I do not say he repented; if he was with others he may would continue to tell the story with full zest.

One can repent themselves, but not unto godly repentance. Only godly repentance worketh unto salvation, which worketh unto life.

Man can repent a repentance that is not unto godly repentance.

I believe Judas was grief stricken beyond any spiritual measurement, however, verses 4 and 5 are bold. I believe Judas was angry."I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood." Speaking to chief priests and elders,"he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple." Chapter 10 verse 4,5 "and Judas Iscar'-i-ot, who also betrayed him." "These twelve Jesus sent forth." Judas is one of the twelve on the twelve thrones. It's possible that the translation is wrong either unintentionally or by design. Could it be someone hung him? Throwing money at the feet of the chief priests in the temple would have been a serious condemnation.
