Mark 16:9–20

9 [1Now after He had risen early on the first day of the week, He first appeared to aMary Magdalene, from whom He had cast out seven demons.

10 aShe went and reported to those who had been with Him, while they were mourning and weeping.

11 When they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, athey refused to believe it.

12 After that, aHe appeared in a different form bto two of them while they were walking along on their way to the country.

13 They went away and reported it to the others, but they adid not believe them either.

The Disciples Commissioned

14 Afterward aHe appeared bto the eleven themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He reproached them for their cunbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen.

15 And He said to them, aGo into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.

16 aHe who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.

17 These 1signs will accompany those who have believed: ain My name they will cast out demons, they will bspeak with new tongues;

18 they will apick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will blay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

19 So then, when the Lord Jesus had aspoken to them, He bwas received up into heaven and csat down at the right hand of God.

20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them, and confirmed the word by the 1signs that followed.]

[2And they promptly reported all these instructions to Peter and his companions. And after that, Jesus Himself sent out through them from east to west the sacred and imperishable proclamation of eternal salvation.]
