Jesus Is Crucified

26 And as they led him away, they seized Simon, a certain [man] of Cyrene, who was coming from the country, [and]a placed the cross on him, to carry [it]b behind Jesus. 27 And a great crowd of the people were following him, and of women who were mourning and lamenting him. 28 But turning to them, Jesus said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children! 29 For behold, days are coming in which they will say, 'Blessed [are] the barren, and the wombs that did not give birth, and [the] breasts that did not nurse!' 30 Then they will begin to say to the mountains, 'Fall on us!' and to the hills, 'Cover us!' 31 For if they do these [things] {when the wood is green},c what will happen {when it is dry}?"d 32 And two other criminals were also led away to be executed with him. 33 And when they came to the place that is called "The Skull," there they crucified him, and the criminals, the one on [his] right and the other on [his] left. 34 [[But Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."]]e And they cast lots to divide his clothes. 35 And the people stood there watching, but the rulers also ridiculed [him],f saying, "He saved others; let him save himself, if this [man] is the Christg of God, the Chosen One!" 36 And the soldiers also mocked him, coming up [and]h offering him sour win 37 and saying, "If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself!" 38 And there was also an inscription over him, "This [is] the king of the Jews." 39 And one of the criminals who were hanged there reviled him, saying, "Are you not the Christ? Save yourself--and us!" 40 But the other answered [and]i rebuked him, saying, "Do you not even fear God, because you are undergoing the same condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly, for we are receiving {what we deserve}j [for] what we have done. But this man has done nothing wrong!" 42 And he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom!" 43 And he said to him, "Truly I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise."
