At that Pilate, wishing to satisfy the crowd, released Bar·abʹbas to them; and after having Jesus whipped he handed him over to be executed on the stake.

The soldiers now led him off into the courtyard, that is, into the governor’s residence, and they called the whole body of troops together. And they dressed him in purple and braided a crown of thorns and put it on him; and they began to call out to him: “Greetings,* you King of the Jews!” Also, they were hitting him on the head with a reed and spitting on him, and they got on their knees and bowed down to him. Finally, after they had mocked him, they stripped him of the purple and put his outer garments on him. And they led him out to nail him to the stake. Also, they compelled into service a passerby, a certain Simon of Cy·reʹne, coming from the countryside, the father of Alexander and Ruʹfus, to carry his torture stake.

So they brought him to the place called Golʹgo·tha, which means, when translated, “Skull Place.” Here they tried to give him wine drugged with myrrh, but he would not take it. And they nailed him to the stake and distributed his outer garments by casting lots over them to decide who would take what. It was now the third hour, and they nailed him to the stake. And the inscription of the charge against him was written: “The King of the Jews.” Moreover, they put two robbers on stakes alongside him, one on his right and one on his left. And those passing by spoke abusively to him, shaking their head and saying: “Ha! You who would throw down the temple and build it in three days, save yourself by coming down off the torture stake.” In the same way also, the chief priests with the scribes were mocking him among themselves, saying: “Others he saved; himself he cannot save! Let the Christ, the King of Israel, now come down off the torture stake, so that we may see and believe.” Even those who were on stakes alongside him were reproaching him.

When it became the sixth hour, a darkness fell over all the land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour, Jesus called out with a loud voice: “Eʹli, Eʹli, laʹma sa·bach·thaʹni?” which means, when translated: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And some of those standing near, on hearing it, began to say: “See! He is calling E·liʹjah.” Then someone ran, soaked a sponge in sour wine, put it on a reed, and gave it to him to drink, saying: “Let him be! Let us see whether E·liʹjah comes to take him down.”  But Jesus let out a loud cry and expired. And the curtain of the sanctuary+ was torn in two from top to bottom. Now when the army officer who was standing by with him in view saw that he had expired under these circumstances, he said: “Certainly this man was God’s Son.”
