Bible: Luke 23:26-33

The Crucifixion

23:26 As 1  they led him away, they seized Simon of Cyrene, 2  who was coming in from the country. 3  They placed the cross on his back and made him carry it behind Jesus. 4  23:27 A great number of the people followed him, among them women 5  who were mourning 6  and wailing for him. 23:28 But Jesus turned to them and said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, 7  do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves 8  and for your children. 23:29 For this is certain: 9  The days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, the wombs that never bore children, and the breasts that never nursed!’ 10  23:30 Then they will begin to say to the mountains, 11 Fall on us!’ and to the hills, ‘Cover us!’ 12  23:31 For if such things are done 13  when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry? 14 

23:32 Two other criminals 15  were also led away to be executed with him. 23:33 So 16  when they came to the place that is called “The Skull,” 17  they crucified 18  him there, along with the criminals, one on his right and one on his left.
