John 19:23-30

A. 23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus,

B. took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part;

C. and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. 24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be:

B. that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them,

C’. and for my vesture they did cast lots.

A’. These things therefore the soldiers did.

A. 25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved,

B. he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!

B’. 27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother!

A’. And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

A. 28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

B. 29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.

B’. 30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar,

A’. he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the spirit.
