And when he knew it of the centurion, 12 then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered 13 to Joseph. 14 He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus. And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight. 15 And when Joseph had taken the body 16 down, 17 he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 18 with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
