1 And when the sabbath was past, :Mary :Magdalene, and Mary the mother of :James, and Salome brought spices, that they might come and anoint him. 2 And very early on the †first day of the week, they come to the tomb when the sun was risen. 3 And they were saying among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the tomb? 4 and looking up, they behold that the stone is rolled back: for it was exceeding great. 5 And entering into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right, arrayed in a white robe; and they were amazed. 6 And he saith to them, Be not amazed: ye seek Jesus, the Nazarene, the crucified one: he is risen; he is not here: see the place where they laid him! 7 But go, tell his :disciples and :Peter [that], He goeth before you into :Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said to you. 8 And they went out and fled from the tomb; for trembling and astonishment had come upon them: and they said nothing to any one; for they were afraid.
9 Now when he was risen early on the first of the week, he appeared first to Mary :Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons. 10 SHE went and reported to them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept. 11 And THEY, when they heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, disbelieved. 12 And after these things he was manifested in another form to two of them walking, as they were proceeding into the country. 13 And THEY went away and reported to the rest: neither believed they them. 14 And afterward he was manifested to the eleven themselves as they sat at meat; and he rebuked their :unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them that had seen him risen from the dead. 15 And he said to them, Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation. 16 Who hath believed and is baptized shall be saved; but who hath disbelieved shall be condemned. 17 And these signs shall follow them that have believed: in my :name shall they cast out demons, speak with tongues; 18 and in their hands they shall take up serpents, and if they drink aught deadly, it shall in nowise hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
19 So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into :heaven, and sat down at the right hand of :God. 20 And THEY went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word by the signs that followed.
