33 They came to a place called Golgotha (which means “the place of the skull”).(A) 34 There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall;(B) but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. 35 When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots.(C) 36 And sitting down, they kept watch(D) over him there. 37 Above his head they placed the written charge against him: this is jesus, the king of the jews.

38 Two rebels were crucified with him,(E) one on his right and one on his left. 39 Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads(F) 40 and saying, “You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days,(G) save yourself!(H) Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!”(I) 41 In the same way the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders mocked him. 42 “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! He’s the king of Israel!(J) Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe(K) in him. 43 He trusts in God. Let God rescue him(L) now if he wants him, for he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’” 44 In the same way the rebels who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him.

22 They brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha (which means “the place of the skull”). 23 Then they offered him wine mixed with myrrh,(A) but he did not take it. 24 And they crucified him. Dividing up his clothes, they cast lots(B) to see what each would get.

25 It was nine in the morning when they crucified him. 26 The written notice of the charge against him read: the king of the jews.(C)

27 They crucified two rebels with him, one on his right and one on his left. [28] [a] 29 Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads(D) and saying, “So! You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days,(E) 30 come down from the cross and save yourself!” 31 In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law mocked him(F) among themselves. “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! 32 Let this Messiah,(G) this king of Israel,(H) come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe.” Those crucified with him also heaped insults on him.

17 Carrying his own cross,(A) he went out to the place of the Skull(B) (which in Aramaic(C) is called Golgotha). 18 There they crucified him, and with him two others(D)—one on each side and Jesus in the middle.

19 Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: jesus of nazareth,(E) the king of the jews.(F) 20 Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city,(G) and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. 21 The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, “Do not write ‘The King of the Jews,’ but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews.”(H)

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

23 When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.

24 “Let’s not tear it,” they said to one another. “Let’s decide by lot who will get it.”

This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled(I) that said,

“They divided my clothes among them
    and cast lots for my garment.”[a](J)

So this is what the soldiers did.
