33When # Mt 27:45-54; Lk 23:44-48; Jn 19:28-30 it was noon, # Lit the sixth hour darkness came over the whole land # Or whole earth until three in the afternoon. # Lit the ninth hour # Am 8:9 34And at three # Lit the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lemá # Some mss read lama ; other mss read lima sabachtháni?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” # Ps 22:1 # Ps 22:1
35When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “Look, He’s calling for Elijah! ” 36Someone ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, fixed it on a reed, offered Him a drink, # Ps 69:21 and said, “Let’s see if Elijah comes to take Him down! ”
