“My soul is sorrowful even unto
death”

Yet it was our infirmities that he bore, our sufferings that he endured. (Isaiah 53:4)

“And bearing the cross for himself he went forth to the place called the Skull” (John 19:17).

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?  And some of them stood there, when they heard it, said, This man calleth Elijah.  And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.  And the rest said, Let be; let us see whether Elijah cometh to save him.  And Jesus cried again with a loud voice, and yielded up his spirit. – Matthew 27:46-50
