13 Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven milesa from Jerusalem.g 14 They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. 15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them;h 16 but they were kept from recognizing him.i
They stood still, their faces downcast. 18 One of them, named Cleopas,j asked him, “Are you the only one visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?”
“About Jesus of Nazareth,”k they replied. “He was a prophet,l powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. 20 The chief priests and our rulersm handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; 21 but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel.n And what is more, it is the third dayo since all this took place. 22 In addition, some of our women amazed us.p They went to the tomb early this morning 23 but didn’t find his body. They came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive. 24 Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but they did not see Jesus.”q
25 He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?”r 27 And beginning with Mosess and all the Prophets,t he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.u
28 As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus continued on as if he were going farther. 29 But they urged him strongly, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them.
30 When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke itv and began to give it to them. 31 Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him,w and he disappeared from their sight. 32 They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within usx while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scripturesy to us?”
33 They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together 34 and saying, “It is true! The Lordz has risen and has appeared to Simon.”a 35 Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread.b
Or about 11 kilometers
my salvation comes from him.
Would all of you throw me down—
this leaning wall,x this tottering fence?
from my lofty place;
they take delight in lies.
With their mouths they bless,
5 Yes, my soul, find rest in God;z
my hope comes from him.
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7 My salvation and my honor depend on Godc;
he is my mighty rock, my refuge.a
8 Trust in him at all times, you people;b
pour out your hearts to him,c
for God is our refuge.
the highborn are but a lie.
If weighed on a balance,f they are nothing;
together they are only a breath.
10 Do not trust in extortiong
or put vain hope in stolen goods;h
though your riches increase,
do not set your heart on them.i
two things I have heard:
“Power belongs to you, God,j
12 and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”;k
and, “You reward everyone
according to what they have done.”l
The Hebrew has Selah (a word of uncertain meaning) here and at the end of verse 8.
Or / God Most High is my salvation and my honor
and therefore I have hope:
for his compassions never fail.t
great is your faithfulness.u
24 I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;v
therefore I will wait for him.”
to the one who seeks him;w
26 it is good to wait quietlyx
for the salvation of the Lord.y
while he is young.
28 Let him sit alone in silence,z
for the Lord has laid it on him.
29 Let him bury his face in the dusta—
there may yet be hope.b
