And at the sixth hour darkness came over the whole earth
until the ninth hour.
And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice,
"Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?"
which is translated, "My God, my God,
why have you forsaken me?"
And some of those standing by hearing
said, "Look, he calls Elijah."
And someone running having filled a sponge with vinegar
putting it around a reed gave it to him to drink,
saying, "Let go, let us see if Elijah comes to take him down."
But Jesus letting go a loud sound expired.
And from the sixth hour darkness came over all the land
until the ninth hour.
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice
saying, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?"
This is: "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"
And some of those standing there hearing
said, "He is calling Elijah."
And immediately one of them running
and taking a sponge filled with vinegar
and putting it around a reed gave it to him to drink.
But the rest said, "Let go,
let us see if Elijah comes to save him."
And Jesus again shouting in a loud voice released his spirit.
And it was already about the sixth hour
and darkness came over the whole earth
until the ninth hour as the sun was eclipsed;
and the curtain in the middle of the temple was split.
And crying in a loud voice Jesus said,
"Father, into your hands I entrust my spirit."
And saying this he expired.
After this Jesus aware that everything was already completed,
so that the scripture might be completed, says, "I thirst."
A jar full of vinegar was there;
so they brought a sponge full of vinegar
put around hyssop to his mouth.
So when Jesus had taken the vinegar
he said, "It is completed,"
and bowing his head he gave up his spirit.
And the curtain of the temple
was split in two from top to bottom.
And the centurion standing by opposite him
seeing that he expired thus,
said, "Truly this person was the son of God."
And there were also women watching from a distance,
among whom were both Mary Magdalene
and Mary the mother of James the younger and Joses,
and Salome, who when he was in Galilee
followed him and ministered to him,
and many others who had come up with him to Jerusalem.
And look, the curtain of the temple
was split in two from top to bottom,
and the earth was shaken, and rocks were split,
and tombs were opened
and many bodies of sleeping saints were raised;
and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection
they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
And the centurion and those with him keeping watch on Jesus
seeing the earthquake and the things happening
were greatly afraid, saying, "Truly this was God's son."
And there were many women there watching from a distance,
who followed Jesus from Galilee ministering to him;
among whom were Mary Magdalene,
and Mary the mother of James and Joseph,
and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.
And the centurion seeing what happened praised God
saying, "This was really a just person."
And all the crowds who were gathered at this sight,
watching what was happening turned back beating their chests.
And all those who knew him
and the women who accompanied him from Galilee
stood at a distance, watching these things.
So the Jews, since it was preparation day,
that the bodies might not stay on the cross on the Sabbath,
for that Sabbath was a high day,
asked Pilate that their legs be broken and they be taken down.
Therefore the soldiers came,
and broke the legs of the first
and of the other crucified with him;
but coming upon Jesus, as they saw he had already died,
they did not break his legs,
but one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear,
and immediately blood and water came out.
And the one who saw it has testified,
and his testimony is true,
and that one knows that he says the truth,
so that you may also believe.
For these things happened
so that the scripture might be fulfilled:
No bone of his will be shattered.
And again different scripture says:
They will look on him whom they pierced.
