And as they led him away, having taken hold on Simon, a certain Cyrenian, coming from the field, they put on him the cross, to bear [it] behind Jesus.
And there was following him a great multitude of the people, and of women, who also were beating themselves and lamenting him,
and Jesus having turned unto them, said, `Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but for yourselves weep ye, and for your children;
for, lo, days do come, in which they shall say, Happy the barren, and wombs that did not bare, and paps that did not give suck;
then they shall begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us, and to the hills, Cover us; --
for, if in the green tree they do these things -- in the dry what may happen?'
And there were also others -- two evil-doers -- with him, to be put to death;
and when they came to the place that is called Skull, there they crucified him and the evil-doers, one on the right hand and one on the left.
And Jesus said, `Father, forgive them, for they have not known what they do;' and parting his garments they cast a lot.
And the people were standing, looking on, and the rulers also were sneering with them, saying, `Others he saved, let him save himself, if this be the Christ, the choice one of God.'
And mocking him also were the soldiers, coming near and offering vinegar to him,
and saying, `If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.'
And there was also a superscription written over him, in letters of Greek, and Roman, and Hebrew, `This is the King of the Jews.'
And one of the evil-doers who were hanged, was speaking evil of him, saying, `If thou be the Christ, save thyself and us.'
And the other answering, was rebuking him, saying, `Dost thou not even fear God, that thou art in the same judgment?
and we indeed righteously, for things worthy of what we did we receive back, but this one did nothing out of place;'
and he said to Jesus, `Remember me, lord, when thou mayest come in thy reign;'
and Jesus said to him, `Verily I say to thee, To-day with me thou shalt be in the paradise.'
And it was, as it were, the sixth hour, and darkness came over all the land till the ninth hour,
and the sun was darkened, and the vail of the sanctuary was rent in the midst,
and having cried with a loud voice, Jesus said, `Father, to Thy hands I commit my spirit;' and these things having said, he breathed forth the spirit.
And the centurion having seen what was done, did glorify God, saying, `Really this man was righteous;'
and all the multitudes who were come together to this sight, beholding the things that came to pass, smiting their breasts did turn back;
and all his acquaintances stood afar off, and women who did follow him from Galilee, beholding these things.
And lo, a man, by name Joseph, being a counsellor, a man good and righteous,
-- he was not consenting to their counsel and deed -- from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, who also himself was expecting the reign of God,
he, having gone near to Pilate, asked the body of Jesus,
and having taken it down, he wrapped it in fine linen, and placed it in a tomb hewn out, where no one was yet laid.
And the day was a preparation, and sabbath was approaching,
and the women also who have come with him out of Galilee having followed after, beheld the tomb, and how his body was placed,
and having turned back, they made ready spices and ointments, and on the sabbath, indeed, they rested, according to the command.
