Matthew 27:39-44

EJ2000(i) 39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads 40 and saying, Thou that wouldst destroy the temple and build it in three days, save thyself. If thou art the Son of God, come down from the cross {Gr. stauros – stake}. 41 Likewise also the princes of the priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said, 42 He saved others; he cannot save himself. If he is the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross {Gr. stauros – stake}, and we will believe him. 43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him, for he said, I am the Son of God. 44 The thieves also, who were crucified with him, reproached him with the same.
