26 And as they led him away, they laid hold of one Simon of Cyrene, coming
from the country; and they laid the cross on
him to carry after Jesus.
27 And there followed him a great multitude of people, and of women, who
bewailed and lamented him.
28 But Jesus turning to them, said: Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not over
me; but weep for yourselves, and for your
29 For behold, the days shall come, wherein they will say: Blessed are the
barren, and the wombs that have not borne, and the paps that have not
30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains: Fall upon us; and to the
hills: Cover us.
31 For if in the green wood they do these things, what shall be done in

33 And when they were come to the place which is called Calvary, they
crucified him there; and the robbers, one on the right hand, and the other
on the left.
34 And Jesus said: Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.
But they, dividing his garments, cast lots.
35 And the people stood beholding, and the rulers with them derided him,
saying: He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the elect
36 And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him
37 And saying: If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.
38 And there was also a superscription written over him in letters of
Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
39 And one of those robbers who were hanged, blasphemed him, saying: If
thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
40 But the other answering, rebuked him, saying: Neither dost thou fear
God, seeing thou art condemned under the same condemnation?
41 And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but
this man hath done no evil.
42 And he said to Jesus: Lord, remember me when thou shalt come into thy
43 And Jesus said to him: Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with
me in paradise.
44 And it was almost the sixth hour; and there was darkness over all the
earth until the ninth hour.
45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the

this was a just man.
48 And all the multitude of them that were come together to that sight,
and saw the things that were done, returned striking their breasts.
49 And all his acquaintance, and the women that had followed him from
Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.
50 And behold there was a man named Joseph, who was a counsellor, a good
and just man,
51 (The same had not consented to their counsel and doings;) of Arimathea,
a city of Judea; who also himself looked for the kingdom of God.
52 This man went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.
53 And taking him down, he wrapped him in fine linen, and laid him in a
sepulchre that was hewed in stone, wherein never yet any man had been
54 And it was the day of the Parasceve, and the sabbath drew on.
55 And the women that were come with him from Galilee, following after,
saw the sepulchre, and how his body was laid.
56 And returning, they prepared spices and ointments; and on the sabbath
day they rested, according to the commandment.
