19:18 There they 1 crucified 2 him along with two others, 3 one on each side, with Jesus in the middle. 19:19 Pilate also had a notice 4 written and fastened to the cross, 5 which read: 6 “Jesus the Nazarene, the king of the Jews.” 19:20 Thus many of the Jewish residents of Jerusalem 7 read this notice, 8 because the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the notice was written in Aramaic, 9 Latin, and Greek. 19:21 Then the chief priests of the Jews 10 said to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The king of the Jews,’ but rather, ‘This man said, I am king of the Jews.’” 19:22 Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”
19:23 Now when the soldiers crucified 11 Jesus, they took his clothes and made four shares, one for each soldier, 12 and the tunic 13 remained. (Now the tunic 14 was seamless, woven from top to bottom as a single piece.) 15 19:24 So the soldiers said to one another, “Let’s not tear it, but throw dice 16 to see who will get it.” 17 This took place 18 to fulfill the scripture that says, “They divided my garments among them, and for my clothing they threw dice.” 19 So the soldiers did these things.
