‘Now, from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour* Jesus cried with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?”, that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And he cried again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit.
‘And the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom; and the earth shook, and the rocks were split; the tombs also were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised, and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
‘When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe, and said:
“Truly, this was the Son of God!”‘

Wash me with water flowing from Thy side.’
