21 They *pressed into service a passer-by coming from the country, Simon of Cyrene (the father of Alexander and Rufus), to bear His cross.
22 Then they *brought Him to the place Golgotha, which is translated, Place of a Skull.23 They tried to give Him wine mixed with myrrh; but He did not take it.24 And they *crucified Him, and *divided up His garments among themselves, casting [a]lots for them to decide[b]what each man should take.25 It was the [c]third hour [d]when they crucified Him.26 The inscription of the charge against Him [e]read, “THE KING OF THE JEWS.”
27 They *crucified two robbers with Him, one on His right and one on His left.28 [[f]And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “And He was numbered with transgressors.”]29 Those passing by were [g]hurling abuse at Him, wagging their heads, and saying, “Ha! You who are going todestroy the temple and rebuild it in three days,30 save Yourself, and come down from the cross!”31 In the same way the chief priests also, along with the scribes, were mocking Him among themselves and saying, “He saved others; [h]He cannot save Himself.32 Let this Christ, the King of Israel, now come down from the cross, so that we may see and believe!” Those who were crucified with Him were also insulting Him.
33 When the [i]sixth hour came, darkness [j]fell over the whole land until the [k]ninth hour.34 At the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”35 When some of the bystanders heard it, they began saying, “Behold, He is calling for Elijah.”36 Someone ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a reed, and gave Him a drink, saying, “[l]Let us see whether Elijah will come to take Him down.”37 And Jesus uttered a loud cry, and breathed His last.38 And the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.39 When the centurion, who was standing [m]right in front of Him, saw [n]the way He breathed His last, he said, “Truly this man was [o]the Son of God!”
40 There were also some women looking on from a distance, among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of [p]James the [q]Less and Joses, and Salome.41 When He was in Galilee, they used to follow Him and [r]minister to Him; and there were many other women who came up with Him to Jerusalem.
