Luke 23:24–49

24 And Pilate ||fgave sentence that it should be as they required. 25 And he released unto them dhim that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; gbut he delivered Jesus to their will.

26 hAnd as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus. 27 And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also ibewailed and lamented him. 28 But Jesus turning unto them said, kDaughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. 29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, lBlessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. 30 mThen shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. 31 For if they do these things in na green tree, owhat shall be done in the dry? 32 pAnd there were also two qother, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.

33 rAnd when they were come to the place, which is called ||Calvary, there they crucified him, pand the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. 34 Then said Jesus, sFather, tforgive them; for uthey know not what they do. And xthey parted his raiment, and cast lots. 35 And ythe people stood beholding. And zthe rulers also with them aderided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, bthe chosen of God. 36 And the soldiers also cmocked him, coming to him, and offering him dvinegar, 37 And saying, eIf thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself. 38 And a fsuperscription also was written over him in letters gof Greek, and Latin, and ghHebrew, iTHIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

39 jAnd one of the malefactors which were hanged krailed on him, saying, lIf thou be Christ, save thyself and us. 40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done mnothing amiss. 42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest ninto thy kingdom. 43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in oparadise.

44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the ||earth until the ninth hour. 45 And pthe sun was darkened, and qthe veil of the temple was rent in the midst. 46 And when Jesus had cried rwith a loud voice, he said, sFather, tinto thy hands I ucommend my spirit: and having said thus, xhe gave up the ghost.

47 yNow when the centurion saw what was done, zhe glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man. 48 And all the people that came together ato that sight, beholding the things which were done, bsmote their breasts, and returned. 49 And call his acquaintance, and dthe women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.
