John 19:23-42 American Standard Version

23  The soldiers therefore, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also the coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. 24  They said therefore one to another, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my garments among them, And upon my vesture did they cast lots. 25  These things therefore the soldiers did. But there were standing by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the [wife] of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26  When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! 27  Then saith he to the disciple, Behold, thy mother! And from that hour the disciple took her unto his own [home]. 28  After this Jesus, knowing that all things are now finished, that the scripture might be accomplished, saith, I thirst. 29  There was set there a vessel full of vinegar: so they put a sponge full of the vinegar upon hyssop, and brought it to his mouth. 30  When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up his spirit.

Jesus' Side Pierced

31  The Jews therefore, because it was the Preparation, that the bodies should not remain on the cross upon the sabbath (for the day of that sabbath was a high [day]), asked of Pilate that their legs might be broken, and [that] they might be taken away. 32  The soldiers therefore came, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other that was crucified with him: 33  but when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs: 34  howbeit one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and straightway there came out blood and water. 35  And he that hath seen hath borne witness, and his witness is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye also may believe. 36  For these things came to pass, that the scripture might be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. 37  And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.

The Burial of Jesus

38  And after these things Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, asked of Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave [him] leave. He came therefore, and took away his body. 39  And there came also Nicodemus, he who at the first came to him by night, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds. 40  So they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury. 41  Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new tomb wherein was never man yet laid. 42  There then because of the Jews' Preparation (for the tomb was nigh at hand) they laid Jesus.
