so they said to one another, "Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it to see whose it shall be."1This was to fulfill the Scripture which says, 2"They divided my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots."So the soldiers did these things,
253but standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.
When Jesus saw his mother and 4the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, 5"Woman, behold, your son!"27
Then he said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother!" And from that hour the disciple took her to 6his own home.
After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now 7finished, said (8to fulfill the Scripture), 9"I thirst."29
A jar full of sour wine stood there, 10so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth.
When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, 11"It is finished," and he bowed his head and 12gave up his spirit.
Since it was 13the day of Preparation, and 14so that the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was 15a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken and that they might be taken away.
So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first, and of the other 16who had been crucified with him.
But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs.
But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out 17blood and water.
