Jesus Is Buried
57 (A)When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who also was a disciple of Jesus. 58 He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate ordered it to be given to him. 59 And Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen shroud 60 and (B)laid it in his own new tomb, (C)which he had cut in the rock. And he rolled (D)a great stone to the entrance of the tomb and went away. 61 Mary Magdalene and (E)the other Mary were there, sitting opposite the tomb.
The Guard at the Tomb
62 The next day, that is, after the day of (F)Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate 63 and said, “Sir, we remember how (G)that impostor said, while he was still alive, (H)‘After three days I will rise.’ 64 Therefore order the tomb to be made secure until the third day, (I)lest his disciples go and steal him away and tell the people, ‘He has risen from the dead,’ and the last fraud will be worse than the first.” 65 Pilate said to them, “You have (J)a guard[a] of soldiers. Go, make it as secure as you can.” 66 So they went and made the tomb secure by (K)sealing the stone and setting a guard.Read full chapter

English Standard Version
19 You know my (A)reproach,
and my shame and my dishonor;
my foes are all known to you.
20 (B)Reproaches have broken my heart,
so that I am in (C)despair.
I (D)looked for (E)pity, but there was none,
and for (F)comforters, but I found none.
21 They gave me (G)poison for food,
and for my thirst they gave me (H)sour wine to drink.
22 (I)Let their own (J)table before them become a snare;
(K)and when they are at peace, let it become a trap.[a]
23 (L)Let their eyes be darkened, so that they cannot see,
(M)and make their loins tremble continually.
24 Pour out your indignation upon them,
and let your burning anger overtake them.
25 (N)May their camp be a desolation;
let no one dwell in their tents.
26 For they (O)persecute him whom (P)you have struck down,
and they recount the pain of (Q)those you have wounded.
27 (R)Add to them punishment upon punishment;
may they have no acquittal from you.[b]
28 Let them be (S)blotted out of the book of the living;
let them not be (T)enrolled among the righteous.
29 But I am afflicted and in pain;
let your salvation, O God, (U)set me on high!
30 I will (V)praise the name of God with a song;
I will (W)magnify him with (X)thanksgiving.
31 This will (Y)please the Lord more than an ox
or a bull (Z)with horns and hoofs.
32 When (AA)the humble see it they will be glad;
you who seek God, (AB)let your hearts revive.
33 For the Lord hears the needy
and (AC)does not despise his own people who are prisoners.
34 Let (AD)heaven and earth praise him,
the seas and everything that moves in them.
35 For (AE)God will save Zion
and build up the cities of Judah,
and people shall dwell there and possess it;
36 (AF)the offspring of his servants shall inherit it,
and those who love his name shall dwell in it.
