SpongeBob: I think he'll give us the 40 lashes.
The Bible makes two references to "40 lashes," as shown below. While Jesus was indeed whipped (Matthew 27:26; Mark 15:15; John 19:1), the record doesn't state how many times.
One of the laws God gave the people through Moses was that when a person was being judged and they were guilty they "must not give him more than forty lashes. If he is flogged more than that, your brother will be degraded in your eyes." - Deuteronomy 25:3.
2 Corinthians 11:24: "From the Jews five times I [the apostle Paul] received forty stripes minus one." (39 were given to ensure that the limit of 40 was not exceeded.)
