The Death of Jesus

33 And when the sixth hour[a] had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.[b] 34 And at the ninth hour Jesus (A)cried with a loud voice, (B)“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 (C)sour wine, put it on a reed (D)and gave it to him to drink, saying, “Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to take him down.” 37 And Jesus (E)uttered a loud cry and (F)breathed his last. 38 And (G)the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. 39 (H)And when the centurion, who stood facing him, saw that in this way he[c] breathed his last, he said, (I)“Truly this man was the Son[d] of God!”

40 There were also (J)women looking on (K)from a distance, among whom were (L)Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, and (M)Salome. 41 When he was in Galilee, they followed him and (N)ministered to him, and there were also many other women who (O)came up with him to Jerusalem.
