John 19:38-42

The Burial of Jesus

38 After these things, Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus, though a secret one because of his fear of the Jews, asked Pilate to let him take away the body of Jesus. Pilate gave him permission; so he came and removed his body. 39Nicodemus, who had at first come to Jesus by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, weighing about a hundred pounds. 40They took the body of Jesus and wrapped it with the spices in linen cloths, according to the burial custom of the Jews. 41Now there was a garden in the place where he was crucified, and in the garden there was a new tomb in which no one had ever been laid. 42And so, because it was the Jewish day of Preparation, and the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there.

Job 14:1-14

14‘A mortal, born of woman, few of days and full of trouble,
2   comes up like a flower and withers,
   flees like a shadow and does not last.
3 Do you fix your eyes on such a one?
   Do you bring me into judgement with you?
4 Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean?
   No one can.
5 Since their days are determined,
   and the number of their months is known to you,
   and you have appointed the bounds that they cannot pass,
6 look away from them, and desist,*
   that they may enjoy, like labourers, their days.


7 ‘For there is hope for a tree,
   if it is cut down, that it will sprout again,
   and that its shoots will not cease.
8 Though its root grows old in the earth,
   and its stump dies in the ground,
9 yet at the scent of water it will bud
   and put forth branches like a young plant.
10 But mortals die, and are laid low;
   humans expire, and where are they?
11 As waters fail from a lake,
   and a river wastes away and dries up,
12 so mortals lie down and do not rise again;
   until the heavens are no more, they will not awake
   or be roused out of their sleep.
13 O that you would hide me in Sheol,
   that you would conceal me until your wrath is past,
   that you would appoint me a set time, and remember me!
14 If mortals die, will they live again?
   All the days of my service I would wait
   until my release should come.
