GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 When the day of worship was over, Mary from Magdala, Mary (the mother of James), and Salome bought spices to go and anoint Jesus. 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 On Sunday they were going to the tomb very early when the sun had just come up. 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 one another, "Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?" 3 and they asked each other, "Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?"
4 When they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away. It was a very large stone. 4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away.
5 As they went into the tomb, they saw a young man. He was dressed in a white robe and sat on the right side. They were panic-stricken. 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 The young man said to them, "Don't panic! You're looking for Jesus from Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been brought back to life. He's not here. Look at the place where 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 Go and tell his disciples and Peter that he's going ahead of them to Galilee. There they will see him, just as he told them." 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 They went out of the tomb and ran away. Shock and trembling had overwhelmed them. They didn't say a thing to anyone, because they were afraid. 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 came back to life early on Sunday, he appeared first to Mary from Magdala, from whom he had forced out seven demons. 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 She went and told his friends, who were grieving and crying. 10 She went and told those who had been with him and who were mourning and weeping.
11 They didn't believe her when they heard that he was alive and that she had seen him. 11 When they heard that Jesus was alive and that she had seen him, they did not believe it.
12 Later Jesus appeared to two disciples as they were walking to their home in the country. He did not look as he usually did. 12 Afterward Jesus appeared in a different form to two of them while they were walking in the country.
13 They went back and told the others, who did not believe them either. 13 These returned and reported it to the rest; but they did not believe them either.
14 Still later Jesus appeared to the eleven apostles while they were eating. He put them to shame for their unbelief and because they were too stubborn to believe those who had seen him alive. 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 Then Jesus said to them, "So wherever you go in the world, tell everyone the Good News. 15 He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.
16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
17 "These are the miraculous signs that will accompany believers: They will use the power and authority of my name to force demons out of people. They will speak 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 if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them. They will place their hands on the sick and cure them." 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 talking with the apostles, the Lord was taken to heaven, where God gave him the highest position. 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 disciples spread [the Good News] everywhere. The Lord worked with them. He confirmed his word by the miraculous signs that accompanied it. 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.
