And one of the malefactors who was hanged there kept insulting him, saying, “Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us.” Bible

“hanged.” The Greek is kremannumi (#2910 κρεμάννυμι), and it means, to hang, to hang up, to suspend, and it was also used of hanging or suspending someone on a cross, just as we used the word “hang” in reference to the cross, and say, “Jesus hung on the cross.”

“kept insulting.” The Greek verb blasphēmeō (#987 βλασφημέω) means showing disrespect to a person or deity, and/or harming his, her, or its reputation. [For more information on blasphēmeō, see commentary on Matt. 9:3].
