The Gospel according to Saint Mark, chapter 16, New English Translation and King James Version

Chapter 16

New English Translation

   The Resurrection
   1 When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought aromatic spices so that they might go and anoint him. 2 And very early on the first day of the week, at sunrise, they went to the tomb. 3 They had been asking each other, "Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?" 4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled back. 5 Then as they went into the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. 6 But he said to them, "Do not be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has been raised! He is not here. Look, there is the place where they laid him. 7 But go, tell his disciples, even Peter, that he is going ahead of you into Galilee. You will see him there, just as he told you." 8 Then they went out and ran from the tomb, for terror and bewilderment had seized them. And they said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.
   The Longer Ending of Mark
   9 Early on the first day of the week, after he arose, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had driven out seven demons. 10 She went out and told those who were with him, while they were mourning and weeping. 11 And when they heard that he was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe.
   12 After this he appeared in a different form to two of them while they were on their way to the country. 13 They went back and told the rest, but they did not believe them. 14 Then he appeared to the eleven themselves, while they were eating, and he rebuked them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen him resurrected. 15 He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 The one who believes and is baptized will be saved, but the one who does not believe will be condemned. 17 These signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new languages; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands, and whatever poison they drink will not harm them; they will place their hands on the sick and they will be well." 19 After the LORD Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. 20 They went out and proclaimed everywhere, while the LORD worked with them and confirmed the word through the accompanying signs.

King James Version

   1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
   2 And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
   3 And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?
   4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
   5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
   6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
   7 But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.
   8 And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.
   9 ¶ Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
   10 And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept.
   11 And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.
   12 ¶ After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.
   13 And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them.
   14 ¶ Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.
   15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
   16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
   17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
   18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
   19 ¶ So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
   20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
