“They offered Jesus
Mixed with myrrh.
He did not take it.”
καὶ ἐδίδουν αὐτῷ ἐσμυρνισμένον οἶνον· ὃς δὲ οὐκ ἔλαβεν.
This is almost word for word in Matthew, chapter 27:34, but Matthew had gall not myrrh mixed with the wine. Luke, chapter 23, and John, chapter 19, did not have any mention of this offer to drink wine in order to dull the pain. Mark said that that they offered Jesus some wine to drink (καὶ ἐδίδουν αὐτῷ…οἶνον). This wine was mixed with myrrh (ἐσμυρνισμένον), not gall as in Matthew. However, as in Matthew, Jesus would not take it or drink it (ὃς δὲ οὐκ ἔλαβεν).
