English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
19 On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, "Peace be with you." 19 On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you!"
20 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 20 After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.
21 Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you." 21 Again Jesus said, "Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you."
22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. 22 And with that he breathed on them and said, "Receive the Holy Spirit.
23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld." 23 If you forgive anyone his sins, they are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven."
