Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 39 And those who passed by reviled him, wagging [shaking] their heads,

 40 And saying, "You who can destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself. If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross." [When Jesus made that statement, the "temple" was referring to His body.]

 41 Likewise also the chief priests, scribes, and elders mocked him, saying,

 42 "He saved others, but he cannot save himself. If he is the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, 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 And the thieves who were crucified with him, derided Jesus the same way.
