The Crucifixion

Matthew 27

32 a Now as they came out, b they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name. Him they compelled to bear His cross. 33 c And when they had come to a place called Golgotha, that is to say, Place of a Skull, 34 d they gave Him 1 sour wine mingled with gall to drink. But when He had tasted it, He would not drink. 35 e Then they crucified Him, and divided His garments, casting lots, 2 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet:
f "They divided My garments among them,
And for My clothing they cast lots." 3
36 g Sitting down, they kept watch over Him there. 37 And they h put up over His head the accusation written against Him:
38 i Then two robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and another on the left. 39 And j those who passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads 40 and saying, k "You who destroy the temple and build it in three days, save Yourself! l If You are the Son of God, come down from the cross." 41 Likewise the chief priests also, mocking with the 4 scribes and elders, said, 42 "He m saved others; Himself He cannot save. 5 If He is the King of Israel, let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe 6 Him. 43 n "He trusted in God; let Him deliver Him now if He will have Him; for He said, 'I am the Son of God.' " 44 o Even the robbers who were crucified with Him reviled Him with the same thing.
