38-Why have you forsaken me?

And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole earth until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying: “Eloi, Eloi, lamma sabacthani?” Which is, being interpreted: “My God, My God, Why hast thou forsaken me?” And some of the standers by hearing, said: “Behold he calleth Elias.” And one running and filling a sponge with vinegar and putting it upon a reed, gave him to drink, saying: “Stay, let us see if Elias come to take him down.” And Jesus, having cried out with a loud voice, gave up the ghost.
And the veil of the temple was rent in two, from the top to the bottom. And the centurion who stood over against him, seeing that crying out in this manner he had given up the ghost. said: “Indeed this man was the son of God.” And there were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalen and Mary the mother of James the Less and of Joseph and Salome,
Who also when he was in Galilee followed him and ministered to him, and many other women that came up with him to Jerusalem.
