Matthew 27:45Matthew 27:50

b. Judged and Forsaken by God

45 aNow from the 1sixth hour darkness fell over all the land until the 1ninth hour.

46 And about the 1ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is, aMy God, My God, 2why have You forsaken Me?

47 And some of those standing there, when they heard this, said, This man is calling Elijah.

48 And immediately one of them ran, and taking a sponge, he soaked it with 1avinegar and put it on a reed, and gave it to Him to drink.

49 But the rest said, Let Him be. Let us see if Elijah is coming to save Him.

50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and 1ayielded up His spirit.
