23 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

26AS THEY LED HIM AWAY to execution they seized upon a man called Simon, from Cyrene, on his way in from the country, put the cross on his back, and made him walk behind Jesus carrying it.
The Crucifixion of Jesus Lk.23.26-43 (Golgotha) | Mt.27.32-44 | Mk.15.21-32 | Jn.19.17-27Καὶ ὡς ἀπήγαγον αὐτόν, ἐπιλαβόμενοι Σίμωνά τινα Κυρηναῖον ἐρχόμενον ἀπ' ἀγροῦ ἐπέθηκαν αὐτῷ τὸν σταυρὸν φέρειν ὀπισθεν τοῦ Ἰησοῦ.
27Great numbers of people followed, many women among them, who mourned and lamented over him. Ἠκολούθει δὲ αὐτῷ πολὺ πλῆθος τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ γυναικῶν αἳ ἐκόπτοντο καὶ ἐθρήνουν αὐτόν.
28Jesus turned to them and said, 'Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; no, weep for yourselves and your children. στραφεὶς δὲ πρὸς αὐτὰς Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν, Θυγατέρες Ἰερουσαλήμ, μὴ κλαίετε ἐπ' ἐμέ· πλὴν ἐφ' ἑαυτὰς κλαίετε καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ τέκνα ὑμῶν,
29For the days are surely coming when they will say, "Happy are the barren, the wombs that never bore a child, the breasts that never fed one." ὁτι ἰδοὺ ἐρχονται ἡμέραι ἐν αἷς ἐροῦσιν, Μακάριαι αἱ στεῖραι καὶ αἱ κοιλίαι αἳ οὐκ ἐγέννησαν καὶ μαστοὶ οἳ οὐκ ἐθρεψαν.
30Then they will start saying to the mountains, "Fall on us", and to the hills, "Cover us."- Then they will begin to say to the mountains Lk.23.30 | Hs.10.8τότε ἀρξονται λέγειν τοῖς ὄρεσιν,
Πέσετε ἐφ' ἡμᾶς,
καὶ τοῖς βουνοῖς,
καλύψατε ἡμᾶς·
31For if these things are done when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?'
 ὁτι εἰ ἐν τῷ ὑγρῷ ξύλῳ ταῦτα ποιοῦσιν, ἐν τῷ ξηρῷ τί γένηταὶ;
32There were two others with him, criminals who were being led away to execution; Ἤγοντο δὲ καὶ ἑτεροι κακοῦργοι δύο σὺν αὐτῷ ἀναιρεθῆναι.
33and when they reached the place called The Skull, they crucified him there, and the criminals with him, one on his right and the other on his left. καὶ ὅτε ἦλθον ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον τὸν καλούμενον Κρανίον, ἐκεῖ ἐσταύρωσαν αὐτὸν καὶ τοὺς κακούργους, ὃν μὲν ἐκ δεξιῶν ὃν δὲ ἐξ ἀριστερῶν.
34Jesus said, 'Father, forgive them; they do not know what they are doing.' Some witnesses omit: Jesus said, 'Father ... doing.'

They divided his clothes among them by casting lots.

- Father, forgive them  Lk.23.34 | Is.53.12 | Ps.22.18ὁ δὲ Ἰησοῦς ἐλεγεν, Πάτερ, ἀφες αὐτοῖς, οὐ γὰρ οἰδασιν τί ποιοῦσιν. διαμεριζόμενοι δὲ τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ ἔβαλον κλήρους.
35The people stood looking on, and their rulers jeered at him: 'He saved others: now let him save himself, if this is God's Messiah, his Chosen.'- scoffed at him, saying, He saved others Lk.23.35 | Ps.22.7καὶ εἱστήκει ὁ λαὸς θεωρῶν. ἐξεμυκτήριζον δὲ καὶ οἱ ἀρχοντες λέγοντες, Ἄλλους ἐσωσεν, σωσάτω ἑαυτόν, εἰ οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ Χριστὸς τοῦ θεοῦ ὁ ἐκλεκτός.
36The soldiers joined in the mockery and came forward offering him their sour wine. ἐνέπαιξαν δὲ αὐτῷ καὶ οἱ στρατιῶται προσερχόμενοι, ὀξος προσφέροντες αὐτῷ
37'If you are the king of the Jews,' they said, 'save yourself.' καὶ λέγοντες, Εἰ σὺ εἶ ὁ βασιλεὺς τῶν Ἰουδαίων, σῶσον σεαυτόν.
38There was an inscription above his head which ran: 'This is the king of the Jews.'
 ἦν δὲ καὶ ἐπιγραφὴ ἐπ' αὐτῷ,

Ο ΒΑΣΙΛΕΥΣ ΤΩΝ ΙΟΥΔΑΙΩΝ ΟΥΤΟΣ.

39One of the criminals who hung there with him taunted him: 'Are not you the Messiah? Save yourself, and us.' Εἷς δὲ τῶν κρεμασθέντων κακούργων ἐβλασφήμει αὐτὸν λέγων, Οὐχὶ σὺ εἶ ὁ Χριστός; σῶσον σεαυτὸν καὶ ἡμᾶς.
40But the other rebuked him: 'Have you no fear of God? You are under the same sentence as he. ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ ἑτερος ἐπιτιμῶν αὐτῷ ἐφη, Οὐδὲ φοβῇ σὺ τὸν θεόν, ὅτι ἐν τῷ αὐτῷ κρίματι εἶ;
41For us it is plain justice; we are paying the price for our misdeeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.' καὶ ἡμεῖς μὲν δικαίως, ἀξια γὰρ ὧν ἐπράξαμεν ἀπολαμβάνομεν· οὗτος δὲ οὐδὲν ἀτοπον ἐπραξεν.
42And he said, 'Jesus, remember me when you come to your throne.' Some witnesses read: come in royal power. καὶ ἐλεγεν, Ἰησοῦ, μνήσθητί μου ὁταν ἐλθῃς εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν σου.
43He answered, 'I tell you this: today you shall be with me in Paradise.'
 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ, Ἀμήν σοι λέγω, σήμερον μετ' ἐμοῦ ἐσῃ ἐν τῷ παραδείσῳ.
