(K)You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, 30 save yourself, and come down from the cross!” 31 So also the chief priests with the scribes mocked him to one another, saying, (L)“He saved others; (M)he cannot save himself. 32 Let (N)the Christ, (O)the King of Israel, come down now from the cross that we may (P)see and believe.” (Q)Those who were crucified with him also reviled him.

The Death of Jesus

33 And when the sixth hour[c] had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.[d] 34 And at the ninth hour Jesus (R)cried with a loud voice, (S)“Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” 35 And some of the bystanders hearing it said, “Behold, he is calling Elijah.” 36 And someone ran and filled a sponge with (T)sour wine, put it on a reed (U)and gave it to him to drink, saying, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to take him down.” 37 And Jesus (V)uttered a loud cry and (W)breathed his last. 38 And (X)the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom.

23 (A)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.” (B)This was to fulfill the Scripture which says,

    and for my clothing they cast lots.”
