Luke 23:50-56 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

50 And lo! a man, Joseph by name, of Arimathaea, a city of Judaea, that was a decurion, a good man and a just, [And lo! a man, Joseph by name, that was a decurion, or having ten under him, a good man and just,]

51 this man consented not to the counsel and to the deeds of them; and he abode the kingdom of God. [this man consented not to the counsel and deeds of them, of Arimathaea, city of Judaea; the which and he abode the kingdom of God.]

52 This Joseph came to Pilate, and asked the body of Jesus,

53 and took it down, and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and laid him in a grave hewn, in which not yet any man had been laid [in which not yet any man was put].

54 And the day was the even of the holiday, and the sabbath began to shine.[a]

55 And the women following, that came with him from Galilee, saw the grave, and how his body was laid.

56 And they turned again, and made ready sweet smelling spices, and ointments; but in the sabbath they rested, after the commandment.

50 And there was a man named Joseph, a member of the council, and he was a good man and just. 51 He had not consented to their counsel and deed. He was from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, and he was also waiting for the kingdom of God. 52 He went to Pilate and requested the body of Jesus, 53 and took it down, wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid it in a tomb hewn out in stone, in which no man had ever before been laid. 54 And that day was the day of preparation; and the Sabbath drew on.

55 The women who had come with Jesus from Galilee followed after, and saw the sepulchre and how his body was laid. 56 And they returned and prepared spices and oyntments, but rested on the Sabbath day according to the commandment.

50 [a]And behold, there was a man named Joseph, which was a counselor, a good man and a just.
