331And when they came to a placecalled2Golgotha, whichmeansPlace of a Skull,
343they gave Him 4wine to drinkmixed with gall; and after tasting it, He was unwilling to drink.
And when they had crucified Him, 5they divided up His garmentsamong themselves by castingalots.
And sittingdown, they began to 6keepwatchover Him there.
And above His head they put up the chargeagainst Him bwhich read, "7THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS."
At that timetworobbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and one on the left.
And thosepassing by were churlingabuse at Him, 8wagging their heads40
and saying, "9You who are going to destroy the temple and rebuild it in threedays, saveYourself! 10If You are the Son of God, comedown from the cross."
In the sameway the chiefpriestsalso, along with the scribes and elders, were mocking Him and saying,
"11He savedothers; dHe cannotsaveHimself. 12He is the King of Israel; let Him nowcomedown from the cross, and we will believe in Him.
"13HE TRUSTS IN GOD; LET GODRESCUE Him now, IF HE eDELIGHTS IN HIM; for He said, 'I am the Son of God.' "
4414The robbers who had been crucified with Him were alsoinsulting Him with the same words.
4515Now from the fsixthhourdarknessgfell upon all the landuntil the hninthhour.
46About the ninthhourJesuscried out with a loudvoice, saying, "16ELI, ELI, LAMASABACHTHANI?" that is, "MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?"47
And some of those who were standingthere, when they heard it, began saying, "Thisman is calling for Elijah."
4817Immediatelyone of them ran, and taking a sponge, he filled it with sourwine and put it on a reed, and gave Him a drink.
But the rest of them said, "iLet us seewhetherElijah will come to save Himj."
And Jesus18cried out again with a loudvoice, and yielded up His spirit.
5119And behold, 20the kveil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and 21the earthshook and the rocks were split.
The tombs were opened, and manybodies of the lsaints who had 22fallenasleep were raised;
and coming out of the tombsafter His resurrection they entered23the holycity and appeared to many.
5424Now the centurion, and those who were with him 25keepingguardoverJesus, when they saw26the earthquake and the things that were happening, became veryfrightened and said, "Trulythis was m27the Son of God!"
5528Manywomen were therelooking on from a distance, who had followedJesus from Galilee while n29ministering to Him.
56Among them was 30MaryMagdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and 31the mother of the sons of Zebedee.
