Καὶ ὡς ἀπήγαγον αὐτόν, ἐπιλαβόμενοι Σίμωνά τινα Κυρηναῖον ἐρχόμενον ἀπ' ἀγροῦ ἐπέθηκαν αὐτῷ τὸν σταυρὸν φέρειν ὀπισθεν τοῦ Ἰησοῦ. The Crucifixion of Jesus Lk.23.26-43 | Mt.27.32-44 | Mk.15.21-32 | Jn.19.17-27And as they led him away, they seized one Simon of Cyre'ne, who was coming in from the country, and laid on him the cross, to carry it behind Jesus.
Ἠκολούθει δὲ αὐτῷ πολὺ πλῆθος τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ γυναικῶν αἳ ἐκόπτοντο καὶ ἐθρήνουν αὐτόν.  And there followed him a great multitude of the people, and of women who bewailed and lamented him.
στραφεὶς δὲ πρὸς αὐτὰς [ὁ] Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν, Θυγατέρες Ἰερουσαλήμ, μὴ κλαίετε ἐπ' ἐμέ· πλὴν ἐφ' ἑαυτὰς κλαίετε καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ τέκνα ὑμῶν, But Jesus turning to them said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children.
ὁτι ἰδοὺ ἐρχονται ἡμέραι ἐν αἷς ἐροῦσιν, Μακάριαι αἱ στεῖραι καὶ αἱ κοιλίαι αἳ οὐκ ἐγέννησαν καὶ μαστοὶ οἳ οὐκ ἐθρεψαν.  For behold, the days are coming when they will say, 'Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never gave suck!'
τότε ἀρξονται λέγειν τοῖς ὄρεσιν,
Πέσετε ἐφ' ἡμᾶς,
καὶ τοῖς βουνοῖς,
καλύψατε ἡμᾶς·
- Then they will begin to say to the mountains Lk.23.30 | Hs.10.8Then they will begin to say to the mountains, 'Fall on us'; and to the hills, 'Cover us.'
ὁτι εἰ ἐν τῷ ὑγρῷ ξύλῳ ταῦτα ποιοῦσιν, ἐν τῷ ξηρῷ τί γένηταὶ;  For if they do this when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?"
Ἤγοντο δὲ καὶ ἑτεροι κακοῦργοι δύο σὺν αὐτῷ ἀναιρεθῆναι.  Two others also, who were criminals, were led away to be put to death with him.
καὶ ὅτε ἦλθον ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον τὸν καλούμενον Κρανίον, ἐκεῖ ἐσταύρωσαν αὐτὸν καὶ τοὺς κακούργους, ὃν μὲν ἐκ δεξιῶν ὃν δὲ ἐξ ἀριστερῶν.  And when they came to the place which is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on the right and one on the left.
[[ὁ δὲ Ἰησοῦς ἐλεγεν, Πάτερ, ἀφες αὐτοῖς, οὐ γὰρ οἰδασιν τί ποιοῦσιν.]] διαμεριζόμενοι δὲ τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ ἔβαλον κλήρους. - Father, forgive them Lk.23.34 | Is.53.12 | Ps.22.18[[And Jesus said, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do."]] And they cast lots to divide his garments.
καὶ εἱστήκει ὁ λαὸς θεωρῶν. ἐξεμυκτήριζον δὲ καὶ οἱ ἀρχοντες λέγοντες, Ἄλλους ἐσωσεν, σωσάτω ἑαυτόν, εἰ οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ Χριστὸς τοῦ θεοῦ ὁ ἐκλεκτός. - scoffed at him, saying, He saved others Lk.23.35 | Ps.22.7And the people stood by, watching; but the rulers scoffed at him, saying, "He saved others; let him save himself, if he is the Christ of God, his Chosen One!"
ἐνέπαιξαν δὲ αὐτῷ καὶ οἱ στρατιῶται προσερχόμενοι, ὀξος προσφέροντες αὐτῷ  The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him vinegar,
καὶ λέγοντες, Εἰ σὺ εἶ ὁ βασιλεὺς τῶν Ἰουδαίων, σῶσον σεαυτόν.  and saying, "If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!"
ἦν δὲ καὶ ἐπιγραφὴ ἐπ' αὐτῷ,
    Ο ΒΑΣΙΛΕΥΣ ΤΩΝ ΙΟΥΔΑΙΩΝ ΟΥΤΟΣ.
 There was also an inscription over him, "This is the King of the Jews."
Εἷς δὲ τῶν κρεμασθέντων κακούργων ἐβλασφήμει αὐτὸν λέγων, Οὐχὶ σὺ εἶ ὁ Χριστός; σῶσον σεαυτὸν καὶ ἡμᾶς.  One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying, "Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!"
ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ ἑτερος ἐπιτιμῶν αὐτῷ ἐφη, Οὐδὲ φοβῇ σὺ τὸν θεόν, ὅτι ἐν τῷ αὐτῷ κρίματι εἶ;  But the other rebuked him, saying, "Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation?
καὶ ἡμεῖς μὲν δικαίως, ἀξια γὰρ ὧν ἐπράξαμεν ἀπολαμβάνομεν· οὗτος δὲ οὐδὲν ἀτοπον ἐπραξεν.  And we indeed justly; for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong."
καὶ ἐλεγεν, Ἰησοῦ, μνήσθητί μου ὁταν ἐλθῃς εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν σου.  And he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom."
καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ, Ἀμήν σοι λέγω, σήμερον μετ' ἐμοῦ ἐσῃ ἐν τῷ παραδείσῳ.  And he said to him, "Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise."
