John 19 : 31 - 37

Chapter 19

31Therefore, because it was the Preparation Day, that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
32Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first and of the other who was crucified with Him.
33But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs.
34But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.
35And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you may believe.
36For these things were done that the Scripture should be fulfilled, "Not one of His bones shall be broken."
37And again another Scripture says, "They shall look on Him whom they pierced."
