and saying, 1"You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! 2If you are 3the Son of God, come down from the cross."
So also the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked him, saying,
424"He saved others; 5he cannot save himself. 6He is the King of Israel; let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him.
437He trusts in God; let God deliver him now, if he desires him. For he said, 'I am the Son of God.'"
448And the robbers who were crucified with him also reviled him in the same way.
Now from the sixth houra there was darkness over all the landb until the ninth hour.c46
And about the ninth hour Jesus 9cried out with a loud voice, saying, 10"Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?" that is, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"47
And some of the bystanders, hearing it, said, "This man is calling Elijah."
And one of them at once ran and took a sponge, filled it with 11sour wine, and put it on a reed and 12gave it to him to drink.
But the others said, "Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him."
And Jesus 13cried out again with a loud voice and 14yielded up his spirit.
