sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be
broken, and that they might be taken away.
JOH 19:32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and
of the other which was crucified with him.
JOH 19:33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead
already, they brake not his legs:
JOH 19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and
forthwith came there out blood and water.
JOH 19:35 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and
he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.
