John 19:38-42

Jesus Is Buried

38 a  After these things Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly b  for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus, and Pilate gave him permission. So he came and took away his body. 39 c  Nicodemus also, who earlier had come to Jesus
Greek him
by night, came e  bringing a mixture of f  myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds
Greek one hundred litras; a litra (or Roman pound) was equal to about 11 1/2 ounces or 327 grams
in weight.
40So they took the body of Jesus and h  bound it in i  linen cloths with the spices, as is the burial custom of the Jews. 41Now in the place where he was crucified there was a j  garden, and k  in the garden a new tomb l  in which no one had yet been laid. 42So because of the Jewish m  day of Preparation n  since the tomb was close at hand, they laid Jesus there.
