1 And late on the Sabbath-day, on the dawn toward the first of the Sabbaths, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the sepulcher. 2 And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel descending from heaven, having come rolled away the stone from the door, and sat upon it. 3 And his countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow. 4 And from fear of him the keepers did quake, and they became like dead men.
5 And the angel responding, said to the women, Be ye not afraid: for I know that you are seeking Jesus, who has been crucified. 6 He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7 And going quickly, tell His disciples, that He is risen from the dead; and behold, He goes before you into Galilee; and there you shall see Him; lo, I have told you.
8 And having come out quickly from the sepulcher with fear and great joy, they were running to tell His disciples. 9 And behold, Jesus met them, saying, Hail. And they having come forward, took hold of His feet, and worshiped Him. 10 Then Jesus says to them, Fear not: go tell my brethren, that they may depart into Galilee, and there they shall see me.
11 And they going, behold, certain ones of the watch having come into the city, proclaimed to the chief priests all things which had taken place. 12 And being assembled along with the elders, and taking counsel, they gave much money to the soldiers, 13 saying, You tell, that His disciples, having come by night, stole Him away while we slept. 14 And if this may be heard by the governor, we will persuade him and make you secure. 15 And they having received the money, did as they were instructed: and this report is current among the Jews until this day.
16 And the eleven disciples went away into Galilee into the mountain where Jesus commanded them: 17 and seeing Him, they worshiped Him: but some doubted. 18 And Jesus having come spoke to them, saying, All authority is given unto me in heaven and upon earth. 19 Going, disciple all nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost: 20 teaching them to observe all things which I commanded you. And lo, I am with you all the days, unto the end of the age.
