Matthew 28



Jesus Is Raised

1 Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave.

1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

1 After the Sabbaths, around dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to take a look at the burial site.

1 Now after the Sabbath, near dawn of the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala and the other Mary went to take a look at the tomb.

2 And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it.

2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

2 Suddenly, there was a powerful earthquake, because an angel of the Lord had come down from heaven, approached the stone, rolled it away, and was sitting on top of it.

2 And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled the boulder back and sat upon it.

3 And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.

3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:

3 His appearance was bright as lightning, and his clothes were white as snow.

3 His appearance was like lightning, and his garments as white as snow.

4 The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men.

4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

4 Trembling from fear, even the guards themselves became catatonic.

4 And those keeping guard were so frightened at the sight of him that they were agitated and they trembled and became like dead men.

5 The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.

5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.

5 Responding to the women, the angel said, "Stop being frightened! I know you're looking for Jesus, who was crucified.

5 But the angel said to the women, Do not be alarmed and frightened, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, Who was crucified.

6 "He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying.

6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

6 He is not here. He has been raised, just as he said. Come and see the place where he was lying.

6 He is not here; He has risen, as He said [He would do]. Come, see the place where He lay.

7 "Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you."

7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead. He is going ahead of you into Galilee, and you will see him there. Remember, I have told you!"

7 Then go quickly and tell His disciples, He has risen from the dead, and behold, He is going before you to Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.

8 And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples.

8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

8 So they quickly left the tomb, terrified but also ecstatic, and ran to tell Jesus' disciples.

8 So they left the tomb hastily with fear and great joy and ran to tell the disciples.

9 And behold, Jesus met them and greeted them. And they came up and took hold of His feet and worshiped Him.

9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.

9 Suddenly, Jesus met them and said, "Greetings!" They went up to him, took hold of his feet, and worshipped him.

9 And as they went, behold, Jesus met them and said, Hail (greetings)! And they went up to Him and clasped His feet and worshiped Him.

10 Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid; go and take word to My brethren to leave for Galilee, and there they will see Me."

10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

10 Then Jesus told them, "Stop being frightened! Go and tell my brothers to leave for Galilee, and they will see me there."

10 Then Jesus said to them, Do not be alarmed and afraid; go and tell My brethren to go into Galilee, and there they will see Me.
