Bible Quote 19:28 Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, "I am thirsty."
19:29 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus' lips.
19:30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished." With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

19:31 Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jews did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down.
19:32 The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other.
19:33 But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs.
19:34 Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus' side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water.
19:35 The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe.

19:36 These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: "Not one of his bones will be broken,"
19:37 and, as another scripture says, "They will look on the one they have pierced."
Bible Quote 69:1 Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck.
69:2 I sink in the miry depths, where there is no foothold. I have come into the deep waters; the floods engulf me.
69:3 I am worn out calling for help; my throat is parched. My eyes fail, looking for my God.
69:4 Those who hate me without reason outnumber the hairs of my head; many are my enemies without cause, those who seek to destroy me. I am forced to restore what I did not steal.
69:5 You know my folly, O God; my guilt is not hidden from you.

69:6 May those who hope in you not be disgraced because of me, O Lord, the Lord Almighty; may those who seek you not be put to shame because of me, O God of Israel.
69:7 For I endure scorn for your sake, and shame covers my face.
69:8 I am a stranger to my brothers, an alien to my own mother's sons;
69:9 for zeal for your house consumes me, and the insults of those who insult you fall on me.
69:10 When I weep and fast, I must endure scorn;

69:11 when I put on sackcloth, people make sport of me.
69:12 Those who sit at the gate mock me, and I am the song of the drunkards.
69:13 But I pray to you, O Lord , in the time of your favor; in your great love, O God, answer me with your sure salvation.
69:14 Rescue me from the mire, do not let me sink; deliver me from those who hate me, from the deep waters.
69:15 Do not let the floodwaters engulf me or the depths swallow me up or the pit close its mouth over me.

69:16 Answer me, O Lord , out of the goodness of your love; in your great mercy turn to me.
69:17 Do not hide your face from your servant; answer me quickly, for I am in trouble.
69:18 Come near and rescue me; redeem me because of my foes.
69:19 You know how I am scorned, disgraced and shamed; all my enemies are before you.
69:20 Scorn has broken my heart and has left me helpless; I looked for sympathy, but there was none, for comforters, but I found none.

69:21 They put gall in my food and gave me vinegar for my thirst.
69:22 May the table set before them become a snare; may it become retribution and a trap.
69:23 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever.
69:24 Pour out your wrath on them; let your fierce anger overtake them.
69:25 May their place be deserted; let there be no one to dwell in their tents.

69:26 For they persecute those you wound and talk about the pain of those you hurt.
69:27 Charge them with crime upon crime; do not let them share in your salvation.
69:28 May they be blotted out of the book of life and not be listed with the righteous.
69:29 I am in pain and distress; may your salvation, O God, protect me.
69:30 I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.

69:31 This will please the Lord more than an ox, more than a bull with its horns and hoofs.
69:32 The poor will see and be glad- you who seek God, may your hearts live!
69:33 The Lord hears the needy and does not despise his captive people.
69:34 Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and all that move in them,
69:35 for God will save Zion and rebuild the cities of Judah. Then people will settle there and possess it;

69:36 the children of his servants will inherit it, and those who love his name will dwell there.
Bible Quote 12:46 "It must be eaten inside one house; take none of the meat outside the house. Do not break any of the bones.
Bible Quote 12:10 "And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.
