16 (A)So he (B)delivered him over to them to be crucified.

The Crucifixion

So they took Jesus, 17 and (C)he went out, (D)bearing his own cross, to the place called The Place of a Skull, which in Aramaic is called Golgotha. 18 (E)There they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, and Jesus between them. 19 Pilate (F)also wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It read, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.” 20 Many of the Jews read this inscription, for (G)the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and it was written in Aramaic, in Latin, and in Greek. 21 So the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews,’ but rather, ‘This man said, I am King of the Jews.’” 22 Pilate answered, (H)“What I have written I have written.”

23 (I)When the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they took his garments and divided them into four parts, one part for each soldier; also his tunic.[a] But the tunic was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom, 24 so they said to one another, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it to see whose it shall be.” (J)This was to fulfill the Scripture which says,

(K)“They divided my garments among them,
    and for my clothing they cast lots.”

So the soldiers did these things, 25 (L)but standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus saw his mother and (M)the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, (N)“Woman, behold, your son!” 27 Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to (O)his own home.

  1. John 19:23 Greek chiton, a long garment worn under the cloak next to the skin

16 He also allured you out of distress
    into (A)a broad place where there was no cramping,
    and what was set on your (B)table was full of (C)fatness.

17 “But you are full of the judgment on the wicked;
    judgment and justice seize you.
18 Beware lest wrath entice you into scoffing,
    and let not the greatness of (D)the ransom turn you aside.
19 Will your (E)cry for help avail to keep you from distress,
    or all the force of your strength?
20 Do not long for (F)the night,
    when peoples vanish (G)in their place.
21 Take care; (H)do not turn to iniquity,
    for this you have chosen rather than affliction.
22 Behold, God is exalted in his power;
    who is (I)a teacher like him?
23 Who has (J)prescribed for him his way,
    or who can say, (K)‘You have done wrong’?

24 “Remember to (L)extol his work,
    of which men have (M)sung.
25 All mankind has looked on it;
    man beholds it from afar.
26 Behold, God is great, and we (N)know him not;
    the number of his (O)years is unsearchable.
27 For he draws up the drops of water;
    they distill his (P)mist in (Q)rain,
28 which (R)the skies pour down
    and drop on mankind abundantly.
29 Can anyone understand (S)the spreading of the clouds,
    the thunderings of his (T)pavilion?
30 Behold, he scatters his lightning about him
    and covers the roots of the sea.
31 For by these he (U)judges peoples;
    he gives (V)food in abundance.
32 He covers his (W)hands with the lightning
    and commands it to strike the mark.
33 Its crashing declares his presence;[a]
    the cattle also declare that he rises.
