Matthew 27:45-46

Jesus’ Death

27:45 Now from noon until three, darkness came over all the land. 27:46 At about three o’clock Jesus shouted with a loud voice,Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

tn Grk “from the sixth hour to the ninth hour.”

sn This imagery has parallels to the Day of the Lord: Joel 2:10; Amos 8:9; Zeph 1:15.

tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

tn Grk “with a loud voice, saying.” The participle λέγων (legwn) is redundant here in contemporary English and has not been translated.
