16 Whenn the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene,o Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they could go and anoint him. Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week,p they went to the tombq at sunrise. They were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone from the entrance to the tomb for us?” Looking up, they noticed that the stone—which was very large—had been rolled away.

Whenr they entered the tomb,s they saw a young mant dressedu in a whitev robe sitting on the right side; they were alarmed. “Don’t be alarmed,” he told them. “You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth,w who was crucified. He has risen!x He is not here. See the place where they put him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter,y ‘He is going ahead of you to Galilee;z you will see him there just as he told you.’ ”

They went out and ran from the tomb,aa because trembling and astonishment overwhelmed them. And they said nothing to anyone,ab since they were afraid.

[Some of the earliest * conclude with 16:8.]*


[Earlyac on the first day of the week,ad after he had risen,ae he appeared first to Mary Magdalene,af out of whom he had driven seven demons.ag 10 She went and reported to those who had been with him, as they were mourning and weeping. 11 Yet, when they heard that he was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe it.ah

12 After this, he appearedai in a different form to two of them walking on their way into the country.aj 13 And they went and reported it to the rest, who did not believe them either.


14 Later he appeared to the Elevenak themselves as they were reclining at the table. He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who saw him after he had risen.al 15 Thenam he said to them, “Go into all the worldan and preach the gospel to all creation.ao 16 Whoever believesap and is baptized will be saved,aq but whoever does not believe will be condemned.ar 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues;D 18 they will pick up snakes;E,as if they should drink anything deadly, it will not harmat them; they will lay hands onau the sick, and they will get well.”


19 So the Lord Jesus, after speaking to them,av was taken up into heavenaw and sat down at the right handax of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word by the accompanying signs.]


About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
