Matthew 28:1–15

aIn the end of the sabbath, bas it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came bMary Magdalene and cthe other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there ||was da great earthquake: for ethe angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back fthe stone from the door, and sat upon it. gHis countenance was like lightning, and his raiment hwhite as snow: And for fear of him ithe keepers did shake, and became as dead men. And the angel janswered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, kas he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, lhe goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with mfear and great joy; and ndid run to bring his disciples word. And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met othem, saying, All hail. And they came and pheld him by the feet, and qworshipped him. 10 Then said Jesus unto them, rBe not afraid: go tell smy brethren lthat they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

11 Now when they were going, behold, some of tthe watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done. 12 And when they were assembled with the elders, and had utaken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, 13 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept. 14 And if this come to the wgovernor’s ears, we will xpersuade him, and secure you. 15 So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is ycommonly reported among the Jews zuntil this day.
