In order to speak he had to lift himself up against the spike that was through His feet, then expand His chest to get air in His lungs, and then push the air out while forming words. Each sentence took an incredible amount of effort.
The first statement he says: "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing" (Luke
23: 34) Jesus kept on saying that. -- he may have rested for awhile and then lifted Himself up and then said it again.
But what was Jesus saying here? Was these people really worthy of forgiveness? Didn't they know what they were doing?
Their hearts were very hard they had spiritual blindness, and no, they didn't know that they were crucifying the messiah. they thought that they were doing God a favor
"Along with Him they crucified the criminals, two robbers, on on either side of Jesus in the middle. [and the scripture was fulfilled that says , 'And He was numbered with transgressors.'] (Matt 27:35a; 38; Mark 15:27-28; Luke 23:33; John 19:18)
