1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
1 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices to go and anoint Jesus.
1 And when the Sabbath was past [that is, after the sun had set], Mary Magdalene, and Mary [the mother] of James, and Salome purchased sweet-smelling spices, so that they might go and anoint [Jesus' body].
2 Very early on the first day of the week, they *came to the tomb when the sun had risen.
2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
2 Very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had just come up, they were going to the tomb.
2 And very early on the first day of the week they came to the tomb; [by then] the sun had risen.
3 And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?
3 They were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone from the entrance to the tomb for us?”
3 They kept saying to one another, "Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?"
3 And they said to one another, Who will roll back the stone for us out of [the groove across the floor at] the door of the tomb?
4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
4 Looking up, they observed that the stone—which was very large—had been rolled away.
4 Then they looked up and saw that the stone had been rolled away. (It was a very large stone.)
4 And when they looked up, they [distinctly] saw that the stone was already rolled back, for it was very large.
5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
5 As they went into the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were utterly astonished.
5 And going into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting [there] on the right [side], clothed in a [ long, stately, sweeping] robe of white, and they were utterly amazed and struck with terror.
6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
6 But he told them, "Stop being astonished! You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised. He is not here. Look at the place where they laid him.
6 And he said to them, Do not be amazed and terrified; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, Who was crucified. He has risen; He is not here. See the place where they laid Him.
7 But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.
7 But go and tell his disciples especially Peter that Jesus is going ahead of you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you."
7 But be going; tell the disciples and Peter, He goes before you into Galilee; you will see Him there, [just] as He told you.
8 They went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had gripped them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
8 And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.
8 So they left the tomb and ran away, overwhelmed by shock and astonishment. They didn't say a thing to anyone, because they were afraid.
8 Then they went out [and] fled from the tomb, for trembling and bewilderment and consternation had seized them. And they said nothing about it to anyone, for they were held by alarm and fear.
9 Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
9 After Jesus had risen early on the first day of that week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had driven out seven demons.

10 And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.
10 She went and reported to those who had been with Him, as they were mourning and weeping.
10 She went and told those who had been with Jesus and who now were grieving and crying.
10 She went and reported it to those who had been with Him, as they grieved and wept.
11 And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.
11 When they heard that he was alive and that he had been seen by her, they refused to believe Mary.
11 And when they heard that He was alive and that she had seen Him, they did not believe it.
12 After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.
12 After this, Jesus appeared in a different form to two disciples as they were walking into the country.
12 After this, He appeared in a different form to two of them as they were walking [along the way] into the country.
13 And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.
13 And they went and reported it to the rest, who did not believe them either.
13 They went back and told the others, who didn't believe them, either.
13 And they returned [to Jerusalem] and told the others, but they did not believe them either.
14 Afterward (Q)He appeared (R)to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He reproached them for their (S)unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen.
14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.

14 Finally he appeared to his eleven disciples while they were eating. He rebuked them for their unbelief and stubbornness, because they had not believed those who had seen him after he had risen.
14 Afterward He appeared to the Eleven [apostles themselves] as they reclined at table; and He reproved and reproached them for their unbelief (their lack of faith) and their hardness of heart, because they had refused to believe those who had seen Him and looked at Him attentively after He had risen [ from death].
15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
15 Then he told them, "As you go into the entire world, proclaim the gospel to everyone.
15 And He said to them, Go into all the world and preach and publish openly the good news (the Gospel) to every creature [of the whole human race].
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever doesn't believe will be condemned.
16 He who believes [who adheres to and trusts in and relies on the Gospel and Him Whom it sets forth] and is baptized will be saved [ from the penalty of eternal death]; but he who does not believe [who does not adhere to and trust in and rely on the Gospel and Him Whom it sets forth] will be condemned.
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new languages;
17 These are the signs that will accompany those who believe: In my name they'll drive out demons, they'll speak in new languages,
17 And these attesting signs will accompany those who believe: in My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new languages;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
18 and they'll pick up snakes with their hands.Even if they drink any deadly poison, it won't hurt them, and they'll place their hands on the sick, and they'll recover."
18 They will pick up serpents; and [even] if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will get well.
