6. Resting in Human Honor

38 And 1aafter these things Joseph from Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but a hidden one for fear of the Jews, requested of Pilate that he might take the body of Jesus away; and Pilate allowed it. He came therefore and took His body away.

39 And aNicodemus, he who had come to Him the first time by night, came also, bringing a mixture of bmyrrh and caloes of about a hundred 1pounds.

40 Therefore they took the body of Jesus and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as is the custom of the Jews for burying.

41 Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new atomb, in which no one had ever yet been laid.

42 Therefore because of the day of preparation for the Jews and because the tomb was near, they laid Jesus there.
