We are situated next to marker number nine of The Way of the Cross. The marker of the station is situated next to the Coptic Orthodox Church above the holy Sepulchre church. The group of convicts have left the city. They are walking slowly slowly, burdened by the heavy load of their crosses. In the dirt path leading due west towards the far quarry. At that moment hundreds and thousands of spectators are already gathered there. On the edge of the quarry sitting on its slope waiting for that moment of joy of seeing somebody else suffer and crucify. As he approaches the edge of the quarry he stumbles on his garment and slides on loose stones, and falls for the third time. The pain is unbearable, but yet he picks himself up and elevates that heavy load, that cross, and continues his path down. Lower and lower to the base of the quarry line where the centurions and the legionnaires are awaiting. The final journey is close.
Estamos situados próximo a Estação Número Nove do Caminho da Cruz. O marcador da estação está situado ao lado da Igreja Ortodoxa Copta acima da Igreja do Santo Sepulcro. O grupo de presos deixou a cidade. Eles estão caminhando muito lentamente, sobrecarregados pelo peso de suas cruzes. no caminho de terra que leva a oeste em direção a pedreira. Naquele momento, centenas e milhares de espectadores já estão ali reunidos. Na beira da pedreira, sentados a sua espera, esperando por esse momento de prazer de ver alguém sofrer e ser crucificado. Ao se aproximar da beira da pedreira ele tropeça em sua roupa e escorrega sobre as pedras soltas, e cai pela terceira vez. A dor é insuportável, mas mesmo assim ele se põe de pé e levanta aquele peso, a cruz, e continua seu caminho. Mais e mais abaixo para a base da linha pedreira onde os centuriões e os legionários estão aguardando. A jornada final está próxima.
Мы стоим рядом с памятным местом номер девять Крестного Пути. Веха станции - Коптская православная церковь, над Храмом Гроба Господня. Группа каторжников покинула город. Они медленно бредут, под тяжелым бременем своих крестов, по грязной дороге, прямо на запад, к далекой каменоломне. Сотни и тысячи зрителей уже собрались тут. Ожидают, сидя на краю каменоломни, момента радости при виде чьих-то страданий и мук. Приблизившись к краю каменоломни, он спотыкается, поскальзывается на разбросанных камнях - и падает в третий раз. Невыносимая боль, но и тут он заставляет себя встать, поднимает тяжелый крест и продолжает спуск. Ниже и ниже, на дно каменоломни, где ждут центурионы и легионеры. Последнее путешествие завершилось.
Estamos situados cerca de la marca de la Estación Número Nueve del Camino de la Cruz. La señal de esta Estación está situada a un lado de la iglesia Ortodoxa Copta, encima de la iglesia del Santo Sepulcro. El grupo de convictos salió de la ciudad. Van caminando lentamente, sobrecargados por el peso de sus cruces. por el camino de tierra que lleva al oeste en dirección a la cantera. En ese momento, cientos y miles de espectadores ya están allí reunidos. Sobre el borde de la cantera, sentados y esperando ese momento de placer de ver a alguien sufrir y ser crucificado. Mientras se acerca al borde de la cantera, tropieza con su propia ropa, resbala sobre las piedras sueltas y cae por tercera vez. El dolor es insoportable, pero todavía puede levantarse, levantar la cruz y continuar su camino. Más y más abajo, hasta la base de la cantera, donde los centuriones y los legionarios están aguardando. La jornada final está próxima.
