39 And those passing by were 1hurling abuse at Him, awagging their heads
40 and saying, “aYou who are going to destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save Yourself! bIf You are the Son of God, come down from the cross.”
41 In the same way the chief priests also, along with the scribes and elders, were mocking Him and saying,
42 “aHe saved others; 1He cannot save Himself. bHe is the King of Israel; let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe in Him.
43 “aHe trusts in God; let God rescue Him now, if He 1delights in Him; for He said, ‘I am the Son of God.’ ”
44 aThe robbers who had been crucified with Him were also insulting Him with the same words.
