New King James Version
The King on a Cross(A)
32 (B)Now as they came out, (C)they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name. Him they compelled to bear His cross. 33 (D)And when they had come to a place called Golgotha, that is to say, Place of a Skull, 34 (E)they gave Him [a]sour wine mingled with gall to drink. But when He had tasted it, He would not drink.
(G)“They divided My garments among them,
And for My clothing they cast lots.”
THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
38 (J)Then two robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and another on the left.
39 And (K)those who passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads 40 and saying, (L)“You who destroy the temple and build it in three days, save Yourself! (M)If You are the Son of God, come down from the cross.”
41 Likewise the chief priests also, mocking with the [c]scribes and elders, said, 42 “He (N)saved others; Himself He cannot save. [d]If He is the King of Israel, let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe [e]Him. 43 (O)He trusted in God; let Him deliver Him now if He will have Him; for He said, ‘I am the Son of God.’ ”
44 (P)Even the robbers who were crucified with Him reviled Him with the same thing.
Jesus Dies on the Cross(Q)
45 (R)Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. 46 And about the ninth hour (S)Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, (T)“My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”
47 Some of those who stood there, when they heard that, said, “This Man is calling for Elijah!” 48 Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, (U)filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink.
49 The rest said, “Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to save Him.”
51 Then, behold, (X)the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, 52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
55 And many women (AA)who followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to Him, were there looking on from afar, 56 (AB)among whom were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and [f]Joses, and the mother of Zebedee’s sons.Read full chapter
