2 There was a violent earthquake,r for an angels of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stonet and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow.u 4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid,v for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.w Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee.x There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
