His clothes taken by

39) Prophecy: Jesus would have His clothes taken by those who would cast lots for them
Old Testament Reference: Psalm 22:18
New Testament Fulfillment: Matthew 27:35, John 19:23-24

Psalm 22:18

 They divide my clothes among them
    and cast lots for my garment.


Matthew 27:35

 35 When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots.



John 19:23-24


23 When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.
24 “Let’s not tear it,” they said to one another. “Let’s decide by lot who will get it.”
This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled that said,
“They divided my clothes among them
    and cast lots for my garment.”
So this is what the soldiers did.
