Luke 23 (WEBP)

[1] The whole company of them rose up and brought him before Pilate.
[2] They began to accuse him, saying, “We found this man perverting the nation, forbidding paying taxes to Caesar, and saying that he himself is Christ, a king.”
[3] Pilate asked him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” He answered him, “So you say.”
[4] Pilate said to the chief priests and the multitudes, “I find no basis for a charge against this man.”
[5] But they insisted, saying, “He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee even to this place.”
[6] But when Pilate heard Galilee mentioned, he asked if the man was a Galilean.
[7] When he found out that he was in Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem during those days.
[8] Now when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceedingly glad, for he had wanted to see him for a long time, because he had heard many things about him. He hoped to see some miracle done by him.
[9] He questioned him with many words, but he gave no answers.
[10] The chief priests and the scribes stood, vehemently accusing him.
[11] Herod with his soldiers humiliated him and mocked him. Dressing him in luxurious clothing, they sent him back to Pilate.
[12] Herod and Pilate became friends with each other that very day, for before that they were enemies with each other.
[13] Pilate called together the chief priests, the rulers, and the people,
[14] and said to them, “You brought this man to me as one that perverts the people, and behold, having examined him before you, I found no basis for a charge against this man concerning those things of which you accuse him.
[15] Neither has Herod, for I sent you to him, and see, nothing worthy of death has been done by him.
[16] I will therefore chastise him and release him.”
[17] Now he had to release one prisoner to them at the feast.°
[18] But they all cried out together, saying, “Away with this man! Release to us Barabbas!”—
[19] one who was thrown into prison for a certain revolt in the city, and for murder.
[20] Then Pilate spoke to them again, wanting to release Jesus,
[21] but they shouted, saying, “Crucify! Crucify him!”
[22] He said to them the third time, “Why? What evil has this man done? I have found no capital crime in him. I will therefore chastise him and release him.”
[23] But they were urgent with loud voices, asking that he might be crucified. Their voices and the voices of the chief priests prevailed.
[24] Pilate decreed that what they asked for should be done.
[25] He released him who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, for whom they asked, but he delivered Jesus up to their will.
[26] When they led him away, they grabbed one Simon of Cyrene, coming from the country, and laid the cross on him to carry it after Jesus.
[27] A great multitude of the people followed him, including women who also mourned and lamented him.
[28] But Jesus, turning to them, said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, don’t weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children.
[29] For behold, the days are coming in which they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed.’
[30] Then they will begin to tell the mountains, ‘Fall on us!’ and tell the hills, ‘Cover us.’
[31] For if they do these things in the green tree, what will be done in the dry?”
[32] There were also others, two criminals, led with him to be put to death.
[33] When they came to the place that is called “The Skull”, they crucified him there with the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left.
[34] Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.” Dividing his garments among them, they cast lots.
[35] The people stood watching. The rulers with them also scoffed at him, saying, “He saved others. Let him save himself, if this is the Christ of God, his chosen one!”
[36] The soldiers also mocked him, coming to him and offering him vinegar,
[37] and saying, “If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!”
[38] An inscription was also written over him in letters of Greek, Latin, and Hebrew: “THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.”
[39] One of the criminals who was hanged insulted him, saying, “If you are the Christ, save yourself and us!”
[40] But the other answered, and rebuking him said, “Don’t you even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation?
[41] And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward for our deeds, but this man has done nothing wrong.”
[42] He said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when you come into your Kingdom.”
[43] Jesus said to him, “Assuredly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”
[44] It was now about the sixth hour,° and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour.°
[45] The sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two.
[46] Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” Having said this, he breathed his last.
[47] When the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, “Certainly this was a righteous man.”
[48] All the multitudes that came together to see this, when they saw the things that were done, returned home beating their breasts.
[49] All his acquaintances and the women who followed with him from Galilee stood at a distance, watching these things.
[50] Behold, there was a man named Joseph, who was a member of the council, a good and righteous man
[51] (he had not consented to their counsel and deed), from Arimathaea, a city of the Jews, who was also waiting for God’s Kingdom.
[52] This man went to Pilate, and asked for Jesus’ body.
[53] He took it down and wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid him in a tomb that was cut in stone, where no one had ever been laid.
[54] It was the day of the Preparation, and the Sabbath was drawing near.
[55] The women who had come with him out of Galilee followed after, and saw the tomb and how his body was laid.
[56] They returned and prepared spices and ointments. On the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment.

Luke 23 (KJVS)

[1] And G2532 the whole G537 multitude G4128 of them G846 arose G450 (Aor2ActPtc), and led G71 (Aor2ActInd) him G846 unto G1909 Pilate G4091.
[2] And G1161 they began G756 (AorMidDepInd) to accuse G2723 (PresActInf) him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), We found G2147 (Aor2ActInd) this G5126 [fellow] perverting G1294 (PresActPtc) the nation G1484, and G2532 forbidding G2967 (PresActPtc) to give G1325 (PresActInf) tribute G5411 to Caesar G2541, saying G3004 (PresActPtc) that he himself G1438 is G1511 (PresInf) Christ G5547 a King G935.
[3] And G1161 Pilate G4091 asked G1905 (AorActInd) him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Art G1488 (PresInd) thou G4771 the King G935 of the Jews G2453? And G1161 he answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) him G846 and said G5346 (ImpfInd), Thou G4771 sayest G3004 (PresActInd) [it].
[4] Then G1161 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) Pilate G4091 to G4314 the chief priests G749 and G2532 [to] the people G3793, I find G2147 (PresActInd) no G3762 fault G158 in G1722 this G5129 man G444.
[5] And G1161 they were the more fierce G2001 (ImpfActInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc) G3754, He stirreth up G383 (PresActInd) the people G2992, teaching G1321 (PresActPtc) throughout G2596 all G3650 Jewry G2449, beginning G756 (AorMidPtc) from G575 Galilee G1056 to G2193 this place G5602.
[6] When G1161 Pilate G4091 heard G191 (AorActPtc) of Galilee G1056, he asked G1905 (AorActInd) whether G1487 the man G444 were G2076 (PresInd) a Galilaean G1057.
[7] And G2532 as soon as he knew G1921 (Aor2ActPtc) that G3754 he belonged G2076 (PresInd) unto G1537 Herod’s G2264 jurisdiction G1849, he sent G375 (AorActInd) him G846 to G4314 Herod G2264, who G5607 himself G846 also G2532 was G5607 (PresPtc) at G1722 Jerusalem G2414 at G1722 that G5025 time G2250.
[8] And G1161 when Herod G2264 saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) Jesus G2424, he was exceeding G3029 glad G5463 (Aor2PasDepInd): for G1063 he was G2258 (ImpfInd) desirous G2309 (PresActPtc) to see G1492 (Aor2ActInf) him G846 of G1537 a long G2425 [season], because G1223 he had heard G191 (PresActInf) many things G4183 of G4012 him G846; and G2532 he hoped G1679 (ImpfActInd) to have seen G1492 (Aor2ActInf) some G5100 miracle G4592 done G1096 (PresMidPasDepPtc) by G5259 him G846.
[9] Then G1161 he questioned G1905 (ImpfActInd) with him G846 in G1722 many G2425 words G3056; but G1161 he G846 answered G611 (AorMidDepInd) him G846 nothing G3762.
[10] And G1161 the chief priests G749 and G2532 scribes G1122 stood G2476 (PlupfActInd) and vehemently G2159 accused G2723 (PresActPtc) him G846.
[11] And G1161 Herod G2264 with G4862 his G846 men of war G4753 set G1848 him G846 at nought G1848 (AorActPtc), and G2532 mocked G1702 (AorActPtc) [him], and arrayed G4016 (Aor2ActPtc) him G846 in a gorgeous G2986 robe G2066, and sent G375 him G846 again G375 (AorActInd) to Pilate G4091.
[12] And G1161 G3739 the same G1722 G846 day G2250 Pilate G4091 and G2532 Herod G2264 were made G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) friends G5384 together G3326 G5037 G240: for G1063 before G4391 (ImpfActInd) they were G5607 (PresPtc) at G1722 enmity G2189 between G4314 themselves G1438.
[13] And G1161 Pilate G4091, when he had called together G4779 (AorMidPtc) the chief priests G749 and G2532 the rulers G758 and G2532 the people G2992,
[14] Said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, Ye have brought G4374 (AorActInd) this G5129 man G444 unto me G3427, as G5613 one that perverteth G654 (PresActPtc) the people G2992: and G2532, behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), I G1473, having examined G350 (AorActPtc) [him] before G1799 you G5216, have found G2147 (Aor2ActInd) no G3762 fault G158 in G1722 this G5126 man G444 touching those things G3739 whereof G2596 ye accuse G2723 (PresActInd) him G846:
[15] No G235, nor yet G3761 Herod G2264: for G1063 I sent G375 (AorActInd) you G5209 to G4314 him G846; and G2532, lo G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), nothing G3762 worthy G514 of death G2288 is G2076 (PresInd) done G4238 (PerfPasPtc) unto him G846.
[16] I will G3811 therefore G3767 chastise G3811 (AorActPtc) him G846, and release G630 (FutActInd) [him].
[17] (For G1161 of necessity G318 he must G2192 (ImpfActInd) release G630 (PresActInf) one G1520 unto them G846 at G2596 the feast G1859.)
[18] And G1161 they cried out G349 (AorActInd) all at once G3826, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Away with G142 (PresActImpr) this G5126 [man], and G1161 release G630 (AorActImpr) unto us G2254 Barabbas G912:
[19] (Who G3748 for G2258 (ImpfInd) G1223 a certain G5100 sedition G4714 made G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) in G1722 the city G4172, and G2532 for murder G5408, was cast G906 (PerfPasPtc) into G1519 prison G5438.)
[20] Pilate G4091 therefore G3767, willing G2309 (PresActPtc) to release G630 (AorActInf) Jesus G2424, spake G4377 again G3825 to them G4377 (AorActInd).
[21] But G1161 they cried G2019 (ImpfActInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Crucify G4717 (AorActImpr) [him], crucify G4717 (AorActImpr) him G846.
[22] And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846 the third time G5154, Why G1063, what G5101 evil G2556 hath G4160 he G3778 done G4160 (AorActInd)? I have found G2147 (Aor2ActInd) no G3762 cause G158 of death G2288 in G1722 him G846: I will G3811 therefore G3767 chastise G3811 (AorActPtc) him G846, and let [him] go G630 (FutActInd).
[23] And G1161 they were instant G1945 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) with loud G3173 voices G5456, requiring G154 (PresMidPtc) that he G846 might be crucified G4717 (AorPasInf). And G2532 the voices G5456 of them G846 and G2532 of the chief priests G749 prevailed G2729 (ImpfActInd).
[24] And G1161 Pilate G4091 gave sentence G1948 (AorActInd) that it should be as G1096 (Aor2MidDepInf) they G846 required G155.
[25] And G1161 he released G630 (AorActInd) unto them G846 him that for G1223 sedition G4714 and G2532 murder G5408 was cast G906 (PerfPasPtc) into G1519 prison G5438, whom G3739 they had desired G154 (ImpfMidInd); but G1161 he delivered G3860 (AorActInd) Jesus G2424 to their G846 will G2307.
[26] And G2532 as G5613 they led G520 him G846 away G520 (Aor2ActInd), they laid hold upon G1949 (Aor2MidDepPtc) one G5100 Simon G4613, a Cyrenian G2956, coming G2064 (PresMidPasDepPtc) out of G575 the country G68, and on G2007 him G846 they laid G2007 (AorActInd) the cross G4716, that he might bear G5342 (PresActInf) [it] after G3693 Jesus G2424.
[27] And G1161 there followed G190 (ImpfActInd) him G846 a great G4183 company G4128 of people G2992, and G2532 of women G1135, which G3739 also G2532 bewailed G2875 (ImpfMidInd) and G2532 lamented G2354 (ImpfActInd) him G846.
[28] But G1161 Jesus G2424 turning G4762 (Aor2PasPtc) unto G4314 them G846 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Daughters G2364 of Jerusalem G2419, weep G2799 (PresActImpr) not G3361 for G1909 me G1691, but G4133 weep G2799 (PresActImpr) for G1909 yourselves G1438, and G2532 for G1909 your G5216 children G5043.
[29] For G3754, behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), the days G2250 are coming G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd), in G1722 the which G3739 they shall say G2046 (FutActInd), Blessed G3107 [are] the barren G4723, and G2532 the wombs G2836 that G3739 never G3756 bare G1080 (AorActInd), and G2532 the paps G3149 which G3739 never G3756 gave suck G2337 (AorActInd).
[30] Then G5119 shall they begin G756 (FutMidInd) to say G3004 (PresActInf) to the mountains G3735, Fall G4098 (Aor2ActImpr) on G1909 us G2248; and G2532 to the hills G1015, Cover G2572 (AorActImpr) us G2248.
[31] For G3754 if G1487 they do G4160 (PresActInd) these things G5023 in G1722 a green G5200 tree G3586, what G5101 shall be done G1096 (Aor2MidDepSubj) in G1722 the dry G3584?
[32] And G1161 there were also G2532 two G1417 other G2087, malefactors G2557, led G71 (ImpfPasInd) with G4862 him G846 to be put to death G337 (AorPasInf).
[33] And G2532 when G3753 they were come G565 (Aor2ActInd) to G1909 the place G5117, which G3588 is called G2564 (PresPasPtc) Calvary G2898, there G1563 they crucified G4717 (AorActInd) him G846, and G2532 the malefactors G2557, one G3739 G3303 on G1537 the right hand G1188, and G1161 the other G3739 on G1537 the left G710.
[34] Then G1161 said G3004 (ImpfActInd) Jesus G2424, Father G3962, forgive G863 (Aor2ActImpr) them G846; for G1063 they know G1492 (PerfActInd) not G3756 what G5101 they do G4160 (PresActInd). And G1161 they parted G1266 (PresMidPtc) his G846 raiment G2440, and cast G906 (Aor2ActInd) lots G2819.
[35] And G2532 the people G2992 stood G2476 (PlupfActInd) beholding G2334 (PresActPtc). And G1161 the rulers G758 also G2532 with G4862 them G846 derided G1592 (ImpfActInd) [him], saying G3004 (PresActPtc), He saved G4982 (AorActInd) others G243; let him save G4982 (AorActImpr) himself G1438, if G1487 he G3778 be G2076 (PresInd) Christ G5547, the chosen G1588 of God G2316.
[36] And G1161 the soldiers G4757 also G2532 mocked G1702 (ImpfActInd) him G846, coming G4334 (PresMidPasDepPtc) to him, and G2532 offering G4374 (PresActPtc) him G846 vinegar G3690,
[37] And G2532 saying G3004 (PresActPtc), If G1487 thou G4771 be G1488 (PresInd) the king G935 of the Jews G2453, save G4982 (AorActImpr) thyself G4572.
[38] And G1161 a superscription G1923 also G2532 was G2258 (ImpfInd) written G1125 (PerfPasPtc) over G1909 him G846 in letters G1121 of Greek G1673, and G2532 Latin G4513, and G2532 Hebrew G1444, THIS G3778 IS G2076 (PresInd) THE KING G935 OF THE JEWS G2453.
[39] And G1161 one G1520 of the malefactors G2557 which were hanged G2910 (AorPasPtc) railed G987 (ImpfActInd) on him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), If G1487 thou G4771 be G1488 (PresInd) Christ G5547, save G4982 (AorActImpr) thyself G4572 and G2532 us G2248.
[40] But G1161 the other G2087 answering G611 (AorPasDepPtc) rebuked G2008 (ImpfActInd) him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Dost G5399 not G3761 thou G4771 fear G5399 (PresMidPasDepInd) God G2316, seeing G3754 thou art G1488 (PresInd) in G1722 the same G846 condemnation G2917?
[41] And G2532 we G2249 indeed G3303 justly G1346; for G1063 we receive G618 (PresActInd) the due reward G514 of our G3739 deeds G4238 (AorActInd): but G1161 this man G3778 hath done G4238 (AorActInd) nothing G3762 amiss G824.
[42] And G2532 he said G3004 (ImpfActInd) unto Jesus G2424, Lord G2962, remember G3415 (AorPasImpr) me G3450 when G3752 thou comest G2064 (Aor2ActSubj) into G1722 thy G4675 kingdom G932.
[43] And G2532 Jesus G2424 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Verily G281 I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto thee G4671, To day G4594 shalt thou be G2071 (FutInd) with G3326 me G1700 in G1722 paradise G3857.
[44] And G1161 it was G2258 (ImpfInd) about G5616 the sixth G1623 hour G5610, and G2532 there was G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) a darkness G4655 over G1909 all G3650 the earth G1093 until G2193 the ninth G1766 hour G5610.
[45] And G2532 the sun G2246 was darkened G4654 (AorPasInd), and G2532 the veil G2665 of the temple G3485 was rent G4977 (AorPasInd) in the midst G3319.
[46] And G2532 when Jesus G2424 had cried G5455 (AorActPtc) with a loud G3173 voice G5456, he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Father G3962, into G1519 thy G4675 hands G5495 I commend G3908 (FutMidDepInd) my G3450 spirit G4151: and G2532 having said G2036 (Aor2ActPtc) thus G5023, he gave up the ghost G1606 (AorActInd).
[47] Now G1161 when the centurion G1543 saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) what was done G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc), he glorified G1392 (AorActInd) God G2316, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Certainly G3689 this G3778 was G2258 (ImpfInd) a righteous G1342 man G444.
[48] And G2532 all G3956 the people G3793 that came together G4836 (Aor2MidDepPtc) to G1909 that G5026 sight G2335, beholding G2334 (PresActPtc) the things which were done G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc), smote G5180 (PresActPtc) their G1438 breasts G4738, and returned G5290 (ImpfActInd).
[49] And G1161 all G3956 his G846 acquaintance G1110, and G2532 the women G1135 that followed G4870 (AorActPtc) him G846 from G575 Galilee G1056, stood G2476 (PlupfActInd) afar off G3113, beholding G3708 (PresActPtc) these things G5023.
[50] And G2532, behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), [there was] a man G435 named G3686 Joseph G2501, a counsellor G1010; [and he was] a good G5225 (PresActPtc) G18 man G435, and G2532 a just G1342:
[51] (The same G3778 had G4784 not G3756 consented G4784 (PerfMidPasDepPtc) G2258 (ImpfInd) to the counsel G1012 and G2532 deed G4234 of them G846;) [he was] of G575 Arimathaea G707, a city G4172 of the Jews G2453: G2532 who G3739 also G2532 himself G846 waited for G4327 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) the kingdom G932 of God G2316.
[52] This G3778 [man] went G4334 (Aor2ActPtc) unto Pilate G4091, and begged G154 (AorMidInd) the body G4983 of Jesus G2424.

Young’s Literal Translation

Luke 23 (YLT)

[1] And having risen, the whole multitude of them did lead him to Pilate,
[2] and began to accuse him, saying, ‘This one we found perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying himself to be Christ a king.’
[3] And Pilate questioned him, saying, ‘Thou art the king of the Jews?’ and he answering him, said, ‘Thou dost say it.’
[4] And Pilate said unto the chief priests, and the multitude, ‘I find no fault in this man;’
[5] and they were the more urgent, saying-‘He doth stir up the people, teaching throughout the whole of Judea-having begun from Galilee-unto this place.’
[6] And Pilate having heard of Galilee, questioned if the man is a Galilean,
[7] and having known that he is from the jurisdiction of Herod, he sent him back unto Herod, he being also in Jerusalem in those days.
[8] And Herod having seen Jesus did rejoice exceedingly, for he was wishing for a long time to see him, because of hearing many things about him, and he was hoping some sign to see done by him,
[9] and was questioning him in many words, and he answered him nothing.
[10] And the chief priests and the scribes stood vehemently accusing him,
[11] and Herod with his soldiers having set him at nought, and having mocked, having put around him gorgeous apparel, did send him back to Pilate,
[12] and both Pilate and Herod became friends on that day with one another, for they were before at enmity between themselves.
[13] And Pilate having called together the chief priests, and the rulers, and the people,
[14] said unto them, ‘Ye brought to me this man as perverting the people, and lo, I before you having examined, found in this man no fault in those things ye bring forward against him;
[15] no, nor yet Herod, for I sent you back unto him, and lo, nothing worthy of death is having been done by him;
[16] having chastised, therefore, I will release him,’
[17] for it was necessary for him to release to them one at every feast,
[18] and they cried out-the whole multitude-saying, ‘Away with this one, and release to us Barabbas,’
[19] who had been, because of a certain sedition made in the city, and murder, cast into prison.
[20] Pilate again then-wishing to release Jesus-called to them,
[21] but they were calling out, saying, ‘Crucify, crucify him.’
[22] And he a third time said unto them, ‘Why, what evil did he? no cause of death did I find in him; having chastised him, then, I will release him.’
[23] And they were pressing with loud voices asking him to be crucified, and their voices, and those of the chief priests, were prevailing,
[24] and Pilate gave judgment for their request being done,
[25] and he released him who because of sedition and murder hath been cast into the prison, whom they were asking, and Jesus he gave up to their will.
[26] And as they led him away, having taken hold on Simon, a certain Cyrenian, coming from the field, they put on him the cross, to bear it behind Jesus.
[27] And there was following him a great multitude of the people, and of women, who also were beating themselves and lamenting him,
[28] and Jesus having turned unto them, said, ‘Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but for yourselves weep ye, and for your children;
[29] for, lo, days do come, in which they shall say, Happy the barren, and wombs that did not bare, and paps that did not give suck;
[30] then they shall begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us, and to the hills, Cover us;-
[31] for, if in the green tree they do these things-in the dry what may happen?’
[32] And there were also others-two evil-doers-with him, to be put to death;
[33] and when they came to the place that is called Skull, there they crucified him and the evil-doers, one on the right hand and one on the left.
[34] And Jesus said, ‘Father, forgive them, for they have not known what they do;’ and parting his garments they cast a lot.
[35] And the people were standing, looking on, and the rulers also were sneering with them, saying, ‘Others he saved, let him save himself, if this be the Christ, the choice one of God.’
[36] And mocking him also were the soldiers, coming near and offering vinegar to 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 Roman, and Hebrew, ‘This is the King of the Jews.’
[39] And one of the evil-doers who were hanged, was speaking evil of him, saying, ‘If thou be the Christ, save thyself and us.’
[40] And the other answering, was rebuking him, saying, ‘Dost thou not even fear God, that thou art in the same judgment?
[41] and we indeed righteously, for things worthy of what we did we receive back, but this one did nothing out of place;’
[42] and he said to Jesus, ‘Remember me, lord, when thou mayest come in thy reign;’
[43] and Jesus said to him, ‘Verily I say to thee, To-day with me thou shalt be in the paradise.’
[44] And it was, as it were, the sixth hour, and darkness came over all the land till the ninth hour,
[45] and the sun was darkened, and the vail of the sanctuary was rent in the midst,
[46] and having cried with a loud voice, Jesus said, ‘Father, to Thy hands I commit my spirit;’ and these things having said, he breathed forth the spirit.
[47] And the centurion having seen what was done, did glorify God, saying, ‘Really this man was righteous;’
[48] and all the multitudes who were come together to this sight, beholding the things that came to pass, smiting their breasts did turn back;
[49] and all his acquaintances stood afar off, and women who did follow him from Galilee, beholding these things.
[50] And lo, a man, by name Joseph, being a counsellor, a man good and righteous,
[51] -he was not consenting to their counsel and deed-from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, who also himself was expecting the reign of God,
[52] he, having gone near to Pilate, asked the body of Jesus,
[53] and having taken it down, he wrapped it in fine linen, and placed it in a tomb hewn out, where no one was yet laid.
[54] And the day was a preparation, and sabbath was approaching,
[55] and the women also who have come with him out of Galilee having followed after, beheld the tomb, and how his body was placed,
[56] and having turned back, they made ready spices and ointments, and on the sabbath, indeed, they rested, according to the command.
