Eloi, eloi, lama sabachthani?

At the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice,

ELOI, ELOI, LAMA SABACHTHANI
which is translated, MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME? When some of the bystanders heard it, they began saying, "Behold, He is calling for Elijah." Someone ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a reed, and gave Him a drink, saying, " Let us see whether Elijah will come to take Him down."

And Jesus uttered a loud cry, and breathed His last.
