“It’s the day to prepare
we want no bodies there
when it’s time for the Sabbath to come.
Break their legs, pull them down
so they can’t run around.”
It was done to the ones who weren’t dead.
With the thrust of a spear
one on duty made clear
there was no need to break any more.
It is written for you.
You can trust that it’s true.
It fulfills what was written before.
