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.

33 When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. 34 Jesus said, “Father,(A) forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”[a](B) And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.(C)

35 The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him.(D) They said, “He saved others; let him save himself if he is God’s Messiah, the Chosen One.”(E)

36 The soldiers also came up and mocked him.(F) They offered him wine vinegar(G) 37 and said, “If you are the king of the Jews,(H) save yourself.”

38 There was a written notice above him, which read: this is the king of the jews.(I)

39 One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”(J)

40 But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? 41 We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.”(K)

42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.[b](L)

43 Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”(M)
