New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 The day after the Sabbath day, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought some sweet-smelling spices to put on Jesus' body. 1 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus' body.
2 Very early on that day, the first day of the week, soon after sunrise, the women were on their way to the tomb. 2 Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb
3 They said to each other, "Who will roll away for us the stone that covers the entrance of the tomb?" 3 and they asked each other, "Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?"
4 Then the women looked and saw that the stone had already been rolled away, even though it was very large. 4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away.
5 The women entered the tomb and saw a young man wearing a white robe and sitting on the right side, and they were afraid. 5 As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.
6 But the man said, "Don't be afraid. You are looking for Jesus from Nazareth, who has been crucified. He has risen from the dead; he is not here. Look, here is the place they laid him. 6 "Don't be alarmed," he said. "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.
7 Now go and tell his followers and Peter, 'Jesus is going into Galilee ahead of you, and you will see him there as he told you before.'" 7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter, 'He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.' "
8 The women were confused and shaking with fear, so they left the tomb and ran away. They did not tell anyone about what happened, because they were afraid. Verses 8 Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.
9 After Jesus rose from the dead early on the first day of the week, he showed himself first to Mary Magdalene. One time in the past, he had forced seven demons out of her. 9 When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons.
10 After Mary saw Jesus, she went and told his followers, who were very sad and were crying. 10 She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping.
11 But Mary told them that Jesus was alive. She said that she had seen him, but the followers did not believe her. 11 When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they did not believe it.
12 Later, Jesus showed himself to two of his followers while they were walking in the country, but he did not look the same as before. 12 Afterward Jesus appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking in the country.
13 These followers went back to the others and told them what had happened, but again, the followers did not believe them. 13 These returned and reported it to the rest; but they did not believe them either.
14 Later Jesus showed himself to the eleven apostles while they were eating, and he criticized them because they had no faith. They were stubborn and refused to believe those who had seen him after he had risen from the dead. 14 Later Jesus appeared to the Eleven as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen.
15 Jesus said to his followers, "Go everywhere in the world, and tell the Good News to everyone. 15 He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.
16 Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved, but anyone who does not believe will be punished. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
17 And those who believe will be able to do these things as proof: They will use my name to force out demons. They will speak in new languages. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues;
18 They will pick up snakes and drink poison without being hurt. They will touch the sick, and the sick will be healed." 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well."
19 After the Lord Jesus said these things to his followers, he was carried up into heaven, and he sat at the right side of God. 19 After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God.
20 The followers went everywhere in the world and told the Good News to people, and the Lord helped them. The Lord proved that the Good News they told was true by giving them power to work miracles.] 20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
