New King James Version
Jesus Dies on the Cross(A)
45 (B)Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. 46 And about the ninth hour (C)Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, (D)“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, (E)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, (H)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 (K)who followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to Him, were there looking on from afar, 56 (L)among whom were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and [a]Joses, and the mother of Zebedee’s sons.Read full chapter
