Matthew 27:45-50 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

The Death of Jesus

45 From noon until three in the afternoon[a] darkness came over the whole land.[b] 46 About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out with a loud voice, Elí, Elí, lemá[c] sabachtháni? that is, My God, My God, why have You forsaken[d] Me?[e]

47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling for Elijah!”

48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge, filled it with sour wine, fixed it on a reed, and offered Him a drink. 49 But the rest said, “Let’s see if Elijah comes to save Him!”

50 Jesus shouted again with a loud voice and gave up His spirit.
