From the sixth hour until the ninth hour darkness1 came over all the land.
About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ""Eloi, Eloi,"a "lama" "sabachthani?""--which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"b247
When some of those standing there heard this, they said, "He's calling Elijah."
Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar,3 put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink.
The rest said, "Now leave him alone. Let's see if Elijah comes to save him."
And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.451
At that moment the curtain of the temple5 was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split.652
The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life.
They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city7 and appeared to many people.
When the centurion and those with him who were guarding8 Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, "Surely he was the Sonc of God!"955
Many women were there, watching from a distance. They had followed Jesus from Galilee to care for his needs.1056
Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's sons.11
