Matthew 27:33-56

The Crucifixion

33 1And when they came to a place called 2Golgotha, which means Place of a Skull,
34 3they gave Him 4wine to drink mixed with gall; and after tasting it, He was unwilling * to drink.
35 And when they had crucified Him, 5they divided up His garments among themselves by casting lots.
36 And sitting down, they began to 6keep watch over Him there.
37 And above His head they put up the charge against Him which read, "7THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS."
38 At that time two robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and one on the left.
39 And those passing by were hurling abuse at Him, 8wagging their heads
40 and saying, "9You who are going to destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save Yourself! 10If You are the Son of God, come down from the cross."
41 In the same way the chief priests also, along with the scribes and elders, were mocking Him and saying,
42 "11He saved others; He cannot * save Himself. 12He is the King of Israel; let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe in Him.
43 "13HE TRUSTS IN GOD; LET GOD RESCUE Him now, IF HE DELIGHTS IN HIM; for He said, 'I am the Son of God.' "
44 14The robbers who had been crucified with Him were also insulting Him with the same words.
45 15Now from the sixth hour darkness fell upon all the land until the ninth hour.
46 About the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "16ELI, ELI, LAMA SABACHTHANI?" that is, "MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?"
47 And some of those who were standing there, when they heard it, began saying, "This man is calling for Elijah."
48 17Immediately one of them ran, and taking a sponge, he filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and gave Him a drink.
49 But the rest of them said, "Let us see whether Elijah will come to save Him."
50 And Jesus 18cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.
51 19And behold, 20the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and 21the earth shook and the rocks were split.
52 The tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had 22fallen asleep were raised;
53 and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered 23the holy city and appeared to many.
54 24Now the centurion, and those who were with him 25keeping guard over Jesus, when they saw 26the earthquake and the things that were happening, became very frightened and said, "Truly this was 27the Son of God!"
55 28Many women were there looking on from a distance, who had followed Jesus from Galilee while 29ministering to Him.
56 Among them was 30Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and 31the mother of the sons of Zebedee.
