33 When they came to a place called Golgotha(A) (which means Place of the Skull), 34 they gave him wine[a] mixed with gall to drink. But when he tasted it, he refused to drink it. 35 After crucifying him, they divided his clothes by casting lots.[b](B) 36 Then they sat down and were guarding him there. 37 Above his head they put up the charge against him in writing: This Is Jesus, the King of the Jews.

38 Then two criminals[c] were crucified with him, one on the right and one on the left.(C)

22 They(A) brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha (which means Place of the Skull(B)). 23 They tried to give him wine(C) mixed with myrrh,(D) but he did not take it.

24 Then they crucified him and divided his clothes, casting lots(E) for them to decide what each would get. 25 Now it was nine in the morning[a] when they crucified him. 26 The inscription of the charge written against him was: The King(F) of the Jews.(G) 27 They(H) crucified two criminals[b](I) with him, one on his right and one on his left.[c]

  3. 15:27 Some mss include v. 28: So the Scripture was fulfilled that says: And he was counted among criminals.

17 Carrying(A) the cross by himself,(B) he went out to what is called Place of the Skull, which in Aramaic is called Golgotha. 18 There they crucified him and two others with him, one on either side, with Jesus in the middle. 19 Pilate also had a sign made and put on the cross. It said: Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews. 20 Many of the Jews read this sign, because the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city,(C) and it was written in Aramaic, Latin, and Greek. 21 So the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, “Don’t write, ‘The King of the Jews,’(D) but that he said, ‘I am the King of the Jews.’”

22 Pilate replied, “What I have written, I have written.”

23 When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes and divided them into four parts, a part for each soldier. They also took the tunic, which was seamless, woven in one piece from the top. 24 So they said to one another, “Let’s not tear it, but cast lots for it, to see who gets it.” This happened that the Scripture(E) might be fulfilled(F) that says: They divided my clothes among themselves, and they cast lots for my clothing.[a](G) This is what the soldiers did.
