THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW - Chapter 27 - Verse 50

Verse 50. Cried again with a loud voice. He cried, "It is finished," Joh 19:30. It was in the height of his agony, probably attended with deep groaning, and uttered amidst sorrows which were never else experienced in our world. It finished the work of atonement; made the way of salvation possible; rolled away the curse from guilty men; and opened the kingdom of heaven to all true believers.

Yielded up the ghost. This, though a literal translation, is unhappy. It means, resigned his spirit, or expired. The same phrase is used by the Seventy in describing the death of Rachel, Ge 35:18.
