New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 But very early on Sunday morning the women came to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. 1 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb.
2 They found that the stone covering the entrance had been rolled aside. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb,
3 So they went in, but they couldn't find the body of the Lord Jesus. 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
4 They were puzzled, trying to think what could have happened to it. Suddenly, two men appeared to them, clothed in dazzling robes. 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them.
5 The women were terrified and bowed low before them. Then the men asked, "Why are you looking in a tomb for someone who is alive? 5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, "Why do you look for the living among the dead?
6 He isn't here! He has risen from the dead! Don't you remember what he told you back in Galilee, 6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee:
7 that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again the third day?" 7 'The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.' "
8 Then they remembered that he had said this. 8 Then they remembered his words.
9 So they rushed back to tell his eleven disciples -- and everyone else -- what had happened. 9 When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others.
10 The women who went to the tomb were Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and several others. They told the apostles what had happened, 10 It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the others with them who told this to the apostles.
11 but the story sounded like nonsense, so they didn't believe it. 11 But they did not believe the women, because their words seemed to them like nonsense.
12 However, Peter ran to the tomb to look. Stooping, he peered in and saw the empty linen wrappings; then he went home again, wondering what had happened. 12 Peter, however, got up and ran to the tomb. Bending over, he saw the strips of linen lying by themselves, and he went away, wondering to himself what had happened.
