Matthew 27:45-56New American Standard Bible (NASB)
45 Now from the [a]sixth hour darkness [b]fell upon all the land until the [c]ninth hour.46 About the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”47 And some of those who were standing there, when they heard it, began saying, “This man is calling for Elijah.”48 Immediately one of them ran, and taking a sponge, he filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and gave Him a drink.49 But the rest of them said, “[d]Let us see whether Elijah will come to save Him[e].”50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.51 And behold, the [f]veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth shook and the rocks were split.52 The tombs were opened, and many bodies of the [g]saints who had fallen asleep were raised;53 and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered the holy city and appeared to many.54 Now the centurion, and those who were with him keeping guard over Jesus, when they saw the earthquake and the things that were happening, became very frightened and said, “Truly this was [h]the Son of God!”
55 Many women were there looking on from a distance, who had followed Jesus from Galilee while [i]ministering to Him.56 Among them was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.
