And they kept striking his head with a reed and spitting on him, and kneeling down, they paid homagea to him. Bible see other translations
“Homage” refers to bowing down before someone to show great respect and high regard for the superiority of the individual.

“paid homage.” In kneeling down before Jesus, they acted like they were paying homage to him. This was a continuation of the mocking of Jesus. The soldiers were not sincere about it. See commentary on Matthew 2:2.
