John 19:31John 19:37

5. Issuing in Blood and Water

31 Then the Jews, since it was the day of preparation and so that the bodies might not aremain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath day was a great Sabbath), requested of Pilate that their legs might be broken and that they might be taken away.

32 The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man and of the other man who had been crucified with Him.

33 But coming to Jesus, when they saw that He had already died, they did not break His legs;

34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately there came out 1ablood and 1bwater.

35 And he who has seen this has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he says what is true, that you also may believe.

36 For 1these things happened that the Scripture might be fulfilled: a"No 2bone of His shall be broken.''

37 And again another Scripture says, a"They shall look on Him whom they bpierced.''
