And as they went out of the city, they found a man of Cyrene, called Simon, and they compelled him to carry his cross. And they came to the place, called Golgotha, which sige nifieth a Calvary b. And they gave him wine mingled with gall to drink; and when he had tasted it, he would not drink. After they had crucified him, they divided his garments, cafting lots; that it might be fulfilled, which was spoke by the prophet, saying: They divided my garments among them, and they cast lots for my vesture. And they sat down, and watched him. And they put over his head his cause in writing : THIS IS JESUS: THE KING OF THE JEWS. Then were crucified with him two thieves ; one on his right hand, and the other on his left. , And they that passed by, reviled him, Taking their heads, and saying: S. Ah! Thou that destroyest the temple of God, and in three days buildeft it up again; save thyself. If thou art the Son of God, come down from the cross. C.

He saved others, but cannot save himself: if he be the King of Ifrael, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him : he trusted in God, let him deliver him now, if he love him; for he hath said: I am the Son of God. C. The thieves also, that were crucified with him, reproached him in the same manner. Now from the fixth hour, there was darkness over the whole earth, till the ninth hour.

And behold the veil of the temple was rent in two, from the top to the bottom: and the earth trembled, and the rocks were rent asunder, and the monuments were opened: and many bodies of the faints, who flept, arose: And going out of their monuments, after his resurrection, they came into the holy city, and appeared to many. But the Centurion, and they who were with him watching Jesus, seeing the earthquake, and all that had happened, were very much afraid, and faid: S. Truly, this man was the Son of God. G. And many women were there' at a distance, who had followed us from Galilee, and had waited on him: among whom was Mary Magdalen, and Mary the mother of James and of Jofeph, and the mother of the sons of Žebedee. And when it was now evening, there came a rich man of Arimathea, called Joseph, who was also a disciple of Jesus. He came to Pilate and begged the body of

the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together to Pilate, saying: Sir, we remember, this seducer said, while he was yet alive: After three days I will rise again. Command therefore the fepulchre to be guarded till the third day: left perhaps his disciples come and steal him away, and then say to the people : He is risen from the dead.

Therefore one of his disciples, Judas the Iscariot, who was about to betray him, said: Why was not this perfume fold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? And he said this, not because he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and having the purse, carried what was put in it.
