27. Next it is written that “He gave up the ghost.”33443344    Mark xv. 37 This also had been foretold, by the Prophet, who says, addressing the Father in the Person of the Son, “Into Thy hands I commend My Spirit.”33453345    Ps. xxxi. 5 He is related also to have been buried, and a great stone laid at the door of the sepulchre. Hear what the word of prophecy foretold by Jeremiah concerning this also, “They have cut off my life in the pit, and have laid a stone upon Me.”33463346    Lam. iii. 53 These words of the Prophet point most plainly to His burial. Here are yet others, “The righteous hath been taken away from beholding iniquity, and his place is in peace.”33473347    Isa. lvii. 1, 2 And in another place, “I will give the malignant for his burial;”33483348    Isa. liii. 9, LXX. and yet once more, “He hath lain down and slept as a lion, and as a lion’s whelp; who shall rouse Him up?”33493349    Gen. xlix. 9
