So he came and took the body of Jesus. 39 And (D)Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came, bringing a mixture of (E)myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds. 40 Then they took the body of Jesus, and (F)bound it in strips of linen with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury. 41 Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid.
