20 And after they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and
put his own garments on him, and they led him out to crucify him.
21 And they forced one Simon a Cyrenian who passed by, coming out of the
country, the father of Alexander and of Rufus, to take up his cross.
22 And they bring him into the place called Golgotha, which being
interpreted is, The place of Calvary.
23 And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh; but he took it not.
24 And crucifying him, they divided his garments, casting lots upon them,
what every man should take.
25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.
26 And the inscription of his cause was written over: THE KING OF THE
27 And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and
the other on his left.

29 And they that passed by blasphemed him, wagging their heads, and
saying: Vah, thou that destroyest the temple of
God, and in three days buildest it up again;
30 Save thyself, coming down from the cross.
31 In like manner also the chief priests mocking, said with the scribes
one to another: He saved others; himself he cannot
32 Let Christ the king of Israel come down now from the cross, that we may

34 And at the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying: Eloi,
Eloi, lamma sabacthani? Which is, being
interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
35 And some of the standers by hearing, said: Behold he calleth Elias.
36 And one running and filling a sponge with vinegar, and putting it upon
a reed, gave him to drink, saying: Stay, let us
see if Elias come to take him down.
37 And Jesus having cried out with a loud voice, gave up the ghost.
38 And the veil of the temple was rent in two, from the top to the bottom.
39 And the centurion who stood over against him, seeing that crying out in
this manner he had given up the ghost, said:
Indeed this man was the son of God.
40 And there were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary
Magdalen, and Mary the mother of James the
less and of Joseph, and Salome:

and many other women that came up with him
42 And when evening was now come, (because it was the Parasceve, that is,
the day before the sabbath,)
43 Joseph of Arimathea, a noble counsellor, who was also himself looking
for the kingdom of God, came and went in
boldly to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.
44 But Pilate wondered that he should be already dead. And sending for the
centurion, he asked him if he were already

the fine linen, and laid him in a sepulchre
which was hewed out of a rock. And he rolled a stone to the door of the
