25 And standing beside the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother's sister, and Mary of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.
26 Therefore, when Jesus had seen his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing near, he said to his mother, "Woman, behold your son."
27 Next, he said to the disciple, "Behold your mother." And from that hour, the disciple accepted her as his own.
28 After this, Jesus knew that all had been accomplished, so in order that the Scripture might be completed, he said, "I thirst."
29 And there was a container placed there, full of vinegar. Then, placing a sponge full of vinegar around hyssop, they brought it to his mouth.
30 Then Jesus, when he had received the vinegar, said: "It is consummated." And bowing down his head, he surrendered his spirit.
31 Then the Jews, because it was the preparation day, so that the bodies would not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a great day), they petitioned Pilate in order that their legs might be broken, and they might be taken away.
32 Therefore, the soldiers approached, and, indeed, they broke the legs of the first one, and of the other who was crucified with him.
33 But after they had approached Jesus, when they saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs.
34 Instead, one of the soldiers opened his side with a lance, and immediately there went out blood and water.
