Jesus Dies on the Cross
45 Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour,
there was darkness over all the land.
46 And about the ninth hour
Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying,
“Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?”
that is, “My God, My God, why
have You forsaken Me?”
47 Some of those who stood there,
when they heard that, said, “
This Man is calling for Elijah!”
48 Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge,
filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed,
and offered it to Him to drink.
49 The rest said, “Let Him alone; let us see if
Elijah will come to save Him.”
50 And Jesus cried out again with a
loud voice and yielded up His spirit.
