then the soldiers of the governor having taken Jesus to the Praetorium, did gather to him all the band;
and having unclothed him, they put around him a crimson cloak,
and having plaited him a crown out of thorns they put [it] on his head, and a reed in his right hand, and having kneeled before him, they were mocking him, saying, `Hail, the king of the Jews.'
And having spit on him, they took the reed, and were smiting on his head;
and when they had mocked him, they took off from him the cloak, and put on him his own garments, and led him away to crucify [him].
And coming forth, they found a man, a Cyrenian, by name Simon: him they impressed that he might bear his cross;
and having come to a place called Golgotha, that is called Place of a Skull,
they gave him to drink vinegar mixed with gall, and having tasted, he would not drink.
And having crucified him, they divided his garments, casting a lot, that it might be fulfilled that was spoken by the prophet, `They divided my garments to themselves, and over my vesture they cast a lot;'
and sitting down, they were watching him there,
and they put up over his head, his accusation written, `This is Jesus, the king of the Jews.'
Then crucified with him are two robbers, one on the right hand, and one on the left,
and those passing by were speaking evil of him, wagging their heads,
and saying, `Thou that art throwing down the sanctuary, and in three days building [it], save thyself; if Son thou art of God, come down from the cross.'
And in like manner also the chief priests mocking, with the scribes and elders, said,
`Others he saved; himself he is not able to save! If he be King of Israel, let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe him;
he hath trusted on God, let Him now deliver him, if He wish him, because he said -- Son of God I am;'
with the same also the robbers, who were crucified with him, were reproaching him.
And from the sixth hour darkness came over all the land unto the ninth hour,
and about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a great voice, saying, `Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?' that is, `My God, my God, why didst Thou forsake me?'
And certain of those standing there having heard, said -- `Elijah he doth call;'
and immediately, one of them having run, and having taken a spunge, having filled [it] with vinegar, and having put [it] on a reed, was giving him to drink,
but the rest said, `Let alone, let us see if Elijah doth come -- about to save him.'
And Jesus having again cried with a great voice, yielded the spirit;
