Great and Holy Friday: Good Friday of the Passion of Our Lord

“Today he who hung the earth upon the waters is hung upon the tree.”

“O my people, what have I done unto thee? Or wherein have I afflicted thee? Answer Me. Because I led thee out of the land of Egypt, thou hast prepared a Cross for thy Savior.”

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

From Antiphon XV, Matins for Great and Holy Friday (Orthodox Triodion)
From the Good Friday Reproaches (Roman Rite, Friday of the Passion of the Lord)
Isaiah 53:5 (Authorized Version)
