Good Friday Quotes From Christians and the Bible - Page 3
Alleluia! Praise the Lord, all you nations; all the peoples, praise him.
All you lands, acclaim the Lord! Serve the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
He was despised and rejected, a man of sorrows familiar with grief, a man from whom people hide their face, spurned and considered of no account. Yet ours were sorrows he bore, ours were the sufferings he endured, although we considered him as one punished by God, stricken and brought low. Destroyed because of our sins, he was crushed for our wickedness. Through his punishment we are made whole; by his wounds we are healed. Like sheep we had all gone astray, each following his own way; but Yahweh laid upon him all our guilt. He was harshly treated, but unresisting and silent, he humbly submitted. Like a lamb led to the slaughter or a sheep before the shearer he did not open his mouth. He was taken away to detention and judgment--what an unthinkable fate! He was cut off from the land of the living, stricken for his people's sin. They made his tomb with the wicked, they put him in the graveyard of the oppressors, though he had done no violence nor spoken in deceit.
They can count all my bones, for they are looking and watching me,
Many are the troubles of the just, but the Lord delivers them from all.
I will pour out on the family of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of love and supplication.
The guards and the soldiers, with their commander, seized Jesus and bound him;
Then the High Priest, tearing his garments to show his horror, said, "What more evidence do we need? You have just heard his blasphemous words. What is your decision?" They all condemned Jesus, saying, "He must die." Some of them began to spit on Jesus; and blindfolding him, they struck him and said, "Play the prophet!" And the guards set upon him with blows.
