Matthew 27:1-2, 22-23, 27-37, 39, 42-43, 45-46, 50-51 “1- When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death: 2- And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor. 22- Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified. 23- And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified. 27- Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers. 28- And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe. 29- And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! 30- And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head. 31- And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him. 32- And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross. 33- And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull, 34- They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink. 35- And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots. 36- And sitting down they watched him there; 37- And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS. 39- And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads, 42- He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him. 43- He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God. 45- Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. 46- And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? 50- Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. 51- And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;”
Mateo 27:1-2, 22-23, 27-37, 39, 42-43, 45-46, 50-51 “1 Cuando llegó la mañana, todos los principales sacerdotes y los ancianos del pueblo celebraron consejo contra Jesús para darle muerte. 2 Y después de atarle, le llevaron y le entregaron a Pilato, el gobernador. 22 Pilato les dijo*: ¿Qué haré entonces con Jesús, llamado el Cristo? Todos dijeron*: ¡Sea crucificado! 23 Y Pilato dijo: ¿Por qué? ¿Qué mal ha hecho? Pero ellos gritaban aún más, diciendo: ¡Sea crucificado! 27 Entonces los soldados del gobernador llevaron a Jesús al Pretorio, y reunieron alrededor de El a toda la cohorte romana. 28 Y desnudándole, le pusieron encima un manto escarlata. 29 Y tejiendo una corona de espinas, se la pusieron sobre su cabeza, y una caña en su mano derecha; y arrodillándose delante de El, le hacían burla, diciendo: ¡Salve, Rey de los judíos! 30 Y escupiéndole, tomaban la caña y le golpeaban en la cabeza. 31 Después de haberse burlado de El, le quitaron el manto, le pusieron sus ropas y le llevaron para crucificarle. 32 Y cuando salían, hallaron a un hombre de Cirene llamado Simón, al cual obligaron a que llevara la cruz. 33 Cuando llegaron a un lugar llamado Gólgota, que significa Lugar de la Calavera, 34 le dieron a beber vino mezclado con hiel; pero después de probarlo, no lo quiso beber. 35 Y habiéndole crucificado, se repartieron sus vestidos, echando suertes; 36 y sentados, le custodiaban allí. 37 Y pusieron sobre su cabeza la acusación contra El, que decía: ESTE ES JESUS, EL REY DE LOS JUDIOS. 9 Los que pasaban le injuriaban, meneando la cabeza. 42 A otros salvó; a sí mismo no puede salvarse. Rey de Israel es; que baje ahora de la cruz, y creeremos en El. 43 En Dios confia; que le libre ahora si El le quiere; porque ha dicho: “Yo soy el Hijo de Dios.” 45 Y desde la hora sexta hubo oscuridad sobre toda la tierra hasta la hora novena. 46 Y alrededor de la hora novena, Jesús exclamó a gran voz, diciendo: Eli, Eli, ¿lema sabactani? Esto es: Dios mio, Dios mio, ¿por que me has abandonado? 50 Entonces Jesús, clamando otra vez a gran voz, exhaló el espíritu. 51 Y he aquí, el velo del templo se rasgó en dos, de arriba abajo, y la tierra tembló y las rocas se partieron;”
