Psalm 145:1-13 The Passion Translation (TPT)

God’s Greatness

145 King David’s poetic song of praise
My heart explodes with praise to you!
Now and forever my heart bows in worship to you,
my King and my God!
Every day I will lift up my praise to your name
with praises that will last throughout eternity.
Lord, you are great and worthy of the highest praise!
For there is no end to the discovery
of the greatness that surrounds you.
Generation after generation will declare more of your greatness
and declare more of your glory.
Your magnificent splendor and the miracles of your majesty
are my constant meditation.
Your awe-inspiring acts of power have everyone talking!
I’m telling people everywhere about your excellent greatness!
Our hearts bubble over as we celebrate the fame
of your marvelous beauty, bringing bliss to our hearts.
We shout with ecstatic joy over your breakthrough for us.
You’re kind and tenderhearted to those who don’t deserve it
and very patient with people who fail you.
Your love is like a flooding river overflowing its banks with kindness.
God, everyone sees your goodness,
for your tender love is blended into everything you do.
10 Everything you have made will praise you, fulfilling its purpose.
And all your godly lovers will be found bowing before you.
11 They will tell the world of the lavish splendor of your kingdom
and preach about your limitless power.
12 They will demonstrate for all to see your miracles of might
and reveal the glorious majesty of your kingdom.
13 You are the Lord who reigns over your never-ending kingdom through all the ages of time and eternity!
You are faithful to fulfill every promise you’ve made.
You manifest yourself as kindness in all you do.[a]

Mark 15:42-47 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Jesus’ Burial

42 Evening was fast approaching, and it was a preparation day before a Sabbath. 43 So a prominent Jewish leader named Joseph, from the village of Ramah,[a] courageously went to see Pilate and asked to have custody of the body of Jesus. Joseph was a highly regarded member of the Jewish council and a follower of Jesus[b] who had focused his hope on God’s kingdom realm.[c] 44 Pilate was amazed to hear that Jesus was already dead, so he summoned the Roman officer, who confirmed it.[d] 45 After it was confirmed, Pilate consented to give the corpse to Joseph.

46 Joseph purchased a shroud of fine linen and took the body down from the cross. Then he wrapped it in the linen shroud and placed it in a tomb quarried from out of the rock.[e] Then they rolled a large stone over the entrance to seal the tomb. 47 Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joseph[f] were there and saw exactly where they laid the body of Jesus.

Footnotes:

  1. Mark 15:43 As translated from the Aramaic. Ramah (formerly Ramathaim Zophim) was the village of Samuel, situated on a hill overlooking Jerusalem. The Greek is “Joseph of Arimathea.” Luke tells us that he was a member of the Sanhedrin. See Luke 23:50-51. It is possible that Joseph may have lost a son the age of Jesus when Herod killed the infants.
  2. Mark 15:43 See Matt. 27:57.
  3. Mark 15:43 The Greek text could be translated “He was habitually focusing and progressively moving toward receiving [welcoming, anticipating] God’s kingdom reign.” The Aramaic is “anxiously awaiting the kingdom realm of God.”
  4. Mark 15:44 Or “if he had died too soon.”
  5. Mark 15:46 This was a tomb that had been chiseled into a rock, forming a cave-like structure.
  6. Mark 15:47 Or “Joses.”

John 19:38 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Jesus’ Burial

38 After this, Joseph from the city of Ramah,[a] who was a secret disciple of Jesus for fear of the Jewish authorities, asked Pilate if he could remove the body of Jesus. So Pilate granted him permission to remove the body from the cross.

Footnotes:

  1. John 19:38 As translated from the Aramaic. Or Arimathea (Greek), which means “heights.” This was the likely birthplace of the prophet Samuel. Keep in mind that Joseph may have lost a son the age of Jesus when Herod killed all the babies.
