16 When d the Sabbath was over, * Mary Magdalene, e Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so they could go and anoint Him. 2 Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, f they went to the tomb g at sunrise. 3 They were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone from the entrance to the tomb for us?” 4 Looking up, they observed that the stone—which was very large—had been rolled away. 5 When h they entered the tomb, i they saw a young man j k dressed l in a long white m robe sitting on the right side; they were amazed and alarmed.
6 “Don’t be alarmed,” he told them. “You are looking for Jesus the * Nazarene, n who was crucified. He has been resurrected! o He is not here! See the place where they put Him. 7 But go, tell His disciples and Peter, p ‘He is going ahead of you to Galilee; q you will see Him there just as He told you.’ ”
16:5 In Mt 28:2, the young man = an angel
