Some of them who stood there, when they heard it, said, “This man is calling Elijah.”

Jesus cried again with a loud voice, and yielded up his spirit. Behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom. The earth quaked and the rocks were split. The tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised;

They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.
There will be no night, and they need no lamp light or sun light; for the Lord God will illuminate them. They will reign forever and ever.
