23Then1the soldiers, when they had crucifiedJesus, took His outergarments and made2fourparts, a part to everysoldier and also the atunic; now the tunic was seamless, wovenbin onepiece.
24So they said to oneanother, "3Let us not tear it, but castlots for it, to decide whose it shall be"; 4this was to fulfill the Scripture: "THEY 5DIVIDED MY OUTERGARMENTSAMONG THEM, AND FOR MY CLOTHING THEY CASTcLOTS."
25Therefore the soldiersdidthesethings. 6But standing by the cross of Jesus were 7His mother, and His mother'ssister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and 8MaryMagdalene.
When Jesusthensaw His mother, and 9the disciplewhom He lovedstandingnearby, He said to His mother, "10Woman, behold, your son!"27Then He said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother!" From that hour the discipletook her into 11his own household.
28Afterthis, Jesus, 12knowing that allthings had already been accomplished, 13to fulfill the Scripture, said, "14I amthirsty."29
A jarfull of sourwine was standing there; so15they put a spongefull of the sourwine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth.
30ThereforewhenJesus had received the sourwine, He said, "16It is finished!" And He bowed His head and 17gave up His spirit.
31Then the Jews, because it was 18the day of preparation, so that 19the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (dfor that Sabbath was a 20highday ), askedPilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be takenaway.
32So the soldierscame, and broke the legs of the firstman and of the other who was 21crucified with Him;
but coming to Jesus, when they saw that He was alreadydead, they did not break His legs.
But one of the soldierspierced His side with a spear, and immediately22blood and watercame out.
And he who has seen has 23testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you also may believe.
For thesethingscame to pass24to fulfill the Scripture, "25NOT A BONE OF HIM SHALL BE eBROKEN."
And againanotherScripturesays, "26THEY SHALL LOOK ON HIM WHOM THEY PIERCED."
3827AfterthesethingsJoseph of Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but a 28secret one for 29fear of the Jews, askedPilate that he might takeaway the body of Jesus; and Pilategrantedpermission. So he came and tookaway His body.
3930Nicodemus, who had firstcome to Him by night, alsocame, 31bringing a fmixture of 32myrrh and aloes, about a 33hundredgpounds weight.
40So they took the body of Jesus and 34bound it in 35linenwrappings with the spices, as is the burialcustom of the Jews.
41Now in the placewhere He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a 36newtomb37in whichnoone had yetbeenlaid.
42Thereforebecause of the Jewishday of 38preparation, since the tomb was 39nearby, they laidJesusthere.
