Mark 15:26-47 Darby’s Translation

26  And the superscription of what he was accused of was written up: The King of the Jews. 27  And with him they crucify two robbers, one on his right hand, and one on his left. 28  [And the scripture was fulfilled which says, And he was reckoned with the lawless.] 29  And they that passed by reviled him, shaking their heads, and saying, Aha, thou that destroyest the temple and buildest it in three days, 30  save thyself, and descend from the cross. 31  In like manner the chief priests also, with the scribes, mocking with one another, said, He saved others; himself he cannot save. 32  Let the Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and may believe. And they that were crucified with him reproached him.

33  And when [the] sixth hour was come, there came darkness over the whole land until [the] ninth hour; 34  and at the ninth hour, Jesus cried with a loud voice, [saying], Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? 35  And some of those who stood by, when they heard [it], said, Behold, he calls for Elias. 36  And one, running and filling a sponge with vinegar, fixed it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone, let us see if Elias comes to take him down. 37  And Jesus, having uttered a loud cry, expired. 38  And the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom. 39  And the centurion who stood by over against him, when he saw that he had expired having thus cried out, said, Truly this man was Son of God. 40  And there were women also looking on from afar off, among whom were both Mary of Magdala, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome; 41  who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him and ministered to him; and many others who came up with him to Jerusalem.

The Burial of Jesus

42  And when it was already evening, since it was [the] preparation, that is, [the day] before a sabbath, 43  Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable councillor, who also himself was awaiting the kingdom of God, coming, emboldened himself and went in to Pilate and begged the body of Jesus. 44  And Pilate wondered if he were already dead; and having called to [him] the centurion, he inquired of him if he had long died. 45  And when he knew from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph. 46  And having bought fine linen, [and] having taken him down, he swathed him in the fine linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which was cut out of rock, and rolled a stone to the door of the sepulchre. 47  And Mary of Magdala and Mary the [mother] of Joses saw where he was put.
