1 Now, in the end of sabbaths at the dawning toward the first day of sabbaths, came Mary Magdelene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. 2 And, behold, there occurred a great commotion; for an angel of the Lord, descending out of Heaven, and coming near, rolled away the stone, and was sitting upon it. 3 And his appearance was as lightning, and his raiment white as snow; 4 and, from fear of him, those keeping watch were shaken, and became as dead.
5 And the angel, answering, said to the women, "Fear not; for I know that ye are seeking Jesus Who hath been crucified. 6 He is not here; for He arose, as He said. Come! see the place where the Lord was lying; 7 and, going quickly, say to His disciples, 'He arose from the dead;' and, behold, He is going before you into Galilee; there shall ye see Him; behold, I told you."
8 And, departing quickly from the sepulchre, with fear and great joy, they ran to announce it to His disciples. 9 And, behold, Jesus met them, saying, "Rejoice!" And they, coming to Him, held His feet, and worshiped Him. 10 Then Jesus saith to them, "Fear not, go your way, announce to My brethren that they go away into Galilee, and there shall they see Me."
11 And, as they were going, behold, some of the guard going into the city, reported to the high priests all that had happened. 12 And, having gathered together with the elders, and having taken counsel, they gave a large sum of silver to the soldiers, 13 saying, "Say ye that His disciples, coming by night, stole Him, while we were sleeping. 14 And, if this be heard by the governor, we will persuade him, and make you devoid of care," 15 And they, taking the silver, did as they were instructed. And this account was spread abroad among the Jews, until this day.
16 And the eleven disciples went into Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus appointed them; 17 and seeing Him, they worshiped Him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus, coming near, spake to them, saying, "All authority was given to Me in Heaven and on earth: 19 going, therefore, disciple ye all the nations, immersing them into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; 20 teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I commanded you; and, behold, I am with you all the days, even to the end of the age."
