NKJVNew King James Version
32#Is. 53:9, 12; Matt. 27:38; Mark 15:27; John 19:18There were also two others, criminals, led with Him to be put to death. 33And #Ps. 22:16–18; Matt. 27:33–44; Mark 15:22–32; John 19:17–24when they had come to the place called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one on the right hand and the other on the left. 34Then Jesus said, “Father, #Ps. 109:4; (Matt. 5:44); Acts 7:60; 1 Cor. 4:12forgive them, for #Acts 3:17they do not know what they do.”
And #Ps. 22:18; Matt. 27:35; Mark 15:24; John 19:23they divided His garments and cast lots. 35And #Ps. 22:17; (Zech. 12:10)the people stood looking on. But even the #Ps. 22:8; Matt. 27:39; Mark 15:29rulers with them sneered, saying, “He saved others; let Him save Himself if He is the Christ, the chosen of God.”
36The soldiers also mocked Him, coming and offering Him #Ps. 69:21sour wine, 37and saying, “If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself.”
38#Matt. 27:37; Mark 15:26; John 19:19And an inscription also was written over Him in letters of Greek, Latin, and Hebrew:
THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
39#Matt. 27:44; Mark 15:32Then one of the criminals who were hanged blasphemed Him, saying, “If You are the Christ, save Yourself and us.”
40But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, “Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation? 41And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this Man has done #(2 Cor. 5:21; Heb. 7:26; 1 Pet. 2:21–24)nothing wrong.” 42Then he said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”
43And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in #(2 Cor. 12:4; Eph. 4:8–10; Rev. 2:7)Paradise.”
