The Death of Jesus

28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now (A)finished, said ((B)to fulfill the Scripture), (C)“I thirst.” 29 A jar full of sour wine stood there, (D)so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. 30 When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, (E)“It is finished,” and he bowed his head and (F)gave up his spirit.

Jesus' Side Is Pierced

31 Since it was (G)the day of Preparation, and (H)so that the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was (I)a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken and that they might be taken away. 32 So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first, and of the other (J)who had been crucified with him. 33 But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. 34 But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out (K)blood and water. 35 (L)He who saw it has borne witness—(M)his testimony is true, and he knows that he is telling the truth—(N)that you also may believe. 36 (O)For these things took place that the Scripture might be fulfilled: (P)“Not one of his bones (Q)will be broken.” 37 And again another Scripture says, (R)“They will look on him whom they have pierced.”

Jesus Is Buried

38 (S)After these things Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly (T)for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus, and Pilate gave him permission. So he came and took away his body. 39 (U)Nicodemus also, who earlier had come to Jesus[a] by night, came (V)bringing a mixture of (W)myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds[b] in weight. 40 So they took the body of Jesus and (X)bound it in (Y)linen cloths with the spices, as is the burial custom of the Jews. 41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a (Z)garden, and (AA)in the garden a new tomb (AB)in which no one had yet been laid. 42 So because of the Jewish (AC)day of Preparation, (AD)since the tomb was close at hand, they laid Jesus there.

Revive Us Again

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of (A)the Sons of Korah.

85 Lord, you were (B)favorable to your land;
    you (C)restored the fortunes of Jacob.
You (D)forgave the iniquity of your people;
    you (E)covered all their sin. Selah
You withdrew all your wrath;
    you (F)turned from your hot anger.

(G)Restore us again, O God of our salvation,
    and put away your indignation toward us!
(H)Will you be angry with us forever?
    Will you prolong your anger to all generations?
Will you not (I)revive us again,
    that your people may (J)rejoice in you?
Show us your steadfast love, O Lord,
    and grant us your salvation.

(K)Let me hear what God the Lord will speak,
    for he will (L)speak peace to his people, to his (M)saints;
    but let them not (N)turn back to (O)folly.
Surely his (P)salvation is near to those who fear him,
    that (Q)glory may dwell in our land.

10 (R)Steadfast love and faithfulness meet;
    (S)righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 Faithfulness springs up from the ground,
    and righteousness looks down from the sky.
12 Yes, (T)the Lord will give what is good,
    and our land (U)will yield its increase.
13 (V)Righteousness will go before him
    and make his footsteps a way.
