Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 After the Sabbath, in the early dawn of the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala and the other Mary came to see the sepulchre. 1 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
2 But to their amazement there had been a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord had descended from Heaven, and had come and rolled back the stone, and was sitting upon it. 2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.
3 His appearance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow.
4 For fear of him the guards trembled violently, and became like dead men. 4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
5 But the angel said to the women, "As for you, dismiss your fears. I know that it is Jesus that you are looking for--the crucified One. 5 The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.
6 He is not here: He has come back to life, as He foretold. Come and see the place where He lay. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.
7 And go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead and is going before you into Galilee: there you shall see Him. Remember, I have told you." 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: 'He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.' Now I have told you."
8 They quickly left the tomb and ran, still terrified but full of unspeakable joy, to carry the news to His disciples. 8 So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.
9 And then suddenly they saw Jesus coming to meet them. "Peace be to you," He said. And they came and clasped His feet, bowing to the ground before Him. 9 Suddenly Jesus met them. "Greetings," he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him.
10 Then He said, "Dismiss all fear! Go and take word to my brethren to go into Galilee, and there they shall see me." 10 Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me."
11 While they went on this errand, some of the guards came into the city and reported to the High Priests every detail of what had happened. 11 While the women were on their way, some of the guards went into the city and reported to the chief priests everything that had happened.
12 So the latter held a conference with the Elders, and after consultation with them they heavily bribed the soldiers, 12 When the chief priests had met with the elders and devised a plan, they gave the soldiers a large sum of money,
13 telling them to say, "His disciples came during the night and stole his body while we were asleep." 13 telling them, "You are to say, 'His disciples came during the night and stole him away while we were asleep.'
14 "And if this," they added, "is reported to the Governor, we will satisfy him and screen you from punishment." 14 If this report gets to the governor, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble."
15 So they took the money and did as they were instructed; and this story was noised about among the Jews, and is current to this day. 15 So the soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has been widely circulated among the Jews to this very day.
16 As for the eleven disciples, they proceeded into Galilee, to the hill where Jesus had arranged to meet them. 16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go.
17 There they saw Him and prostrated themselves before Him. Yet some doubted. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted.
18 Jesus however came near and said to them, "All power in Heaven and over the earth has been given to me. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations; baptize them into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 and teach them to obey every command which I have given you. And remember, I am with you always, day by day, until the Close of the Age." 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
