John 19:38-40 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

Jesus’ Burial

38 After this, Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate to let him remove Jesus’ body. When Pilate gave him permission, he came and took Jesus’ body away. 39 Nicodemus, who earlier had come to Jesus at night, also came bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-two pounds.[a]

40 They took Jesus’ body and bound it with linen strips along with the spices, in accord with Jewish burial customs.
