Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes. But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment.
King James Bible
And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
American Standard Version
And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments. And on the sabbath they rested according to the commandment.
Young's Literal Translation
and having turned back, they made ready spices and ointments, and on the sabbath, indeed, they rested, according to the command.
Luke 23:56 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Prepared spices and ointments - This was in order to embalm him; which sufficiently proves that they had no hope of his resurrection the third day.
And rested the Sabbath day - For though the Jewish canons allowed all works, necessary for the dead, to be done, even on the Sabbath, such as washing and anointing, provided they moved not a limb of the dead person, yet, as the Jews had put Christ to death under the pretense of his being a malefactor, it would not have been either prudent or safe to appear too forward in the present business; and therefore they rested on the Sabbath.
Certain copies of the Itala have some remarkable additions in these concluding verses. The conclusion of the 48th verse, in one of them, is read thus: Beating their breasts and their foreheads, and saying, Wo to us because of what is done this day, on account of our sins; for the desolation of Jerusalem is at hand. To Luke 23:52, another adds: And when Pilate heard that he was dead, he glorified God and gave the body to Joseph. On the circumstances of the crucifixion, see the observations at the end of Matthew 27 (note), and consider how heinous sin must be in the sight of God, when it required such a sacrifice!
