Then two robbers were crucified with him, one on the right and one on the left.
And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads
and saying, "You who would destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross."
So also the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked him, saying,
"He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the King of Israel; let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him.
He trusts in God; let God deliver him now, if he desires him; for he said, 'I am the Son of God.'"
And the robbers who were crucified with him also reviled him in the same way.
Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour.
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, "Eli, Eli, la'ma sabach-tha'ni?" that is, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"
And some of the bystanders hearing it said, "This man is calling Eli'jah."
And one of them at once ran and took a sponge, filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave it to him to drink.
