And when they had crucified him
Had fastened him to the cross, and reared it up, and he was hanging upon it:
they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man
This last clause, "what every man should take", is left out in the Arabic version. His garments they divided into four parts; and each soldier, as there were four of them, took a part; and upon his vesture, or seamless coat, because they would not rend it, they cast lots who should have it, and so fulfilled a prophecy in ( Psalms 22:18 ) ; (See Gill on Matthew 27:35).
