Matthew 27:27-50 American Standard Version

27  Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the Praetorium, and gathered unto him the whole band. 28  And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe. 29  And they platted a crown of thorns and put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand; and they kneeled down before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! 30  And they spat upon him, and took the reed and smote him on the head. 31  And when they had mocked him, they took off from him the robe, and put on him his garments, and led him away to crucify him.

The Crucifixion

32  And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to go [with them], that he might bear his cross.

33  And they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, The place of a skull, 34  they gave him wine to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted it, he would not drink. 35  And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments among them, casting lots; 36  and they sat and watched him there. 37  And they set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS. 38  Then are there crucified with him two robbers, one on the right hand and one on the left. 39  And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, 40  and saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself: if thou art the Son of God, come down from the cross. 41  In like manner also the chief priests mocking [him], with the scribes and elders, said, 42  He saved others; himself he cannot save. He is the King of Israel; let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe on him. 43  He trusteth on God; let him deliver him now, if he desireth him: for he said, I am the Son of God. 44  And the robbers also that were crucified with him cast upon him the same reproach. 45  Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. 46  And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? 47  And some of them stood there, when they heard it, said, This man calleth Elijah. 48  And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. 49  And the rest said, Let be; let us see whether Elijah cometh to save him.

50  And Jesus cried again with a loud voice, and yielded up his spirit.
