1 The first day
of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet
dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away
from the sepulchre.
2 Then she runneth,
and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple,
whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken
away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where
they have laid him.
3 Peter therefore
went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the
4 So they ran both
together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and
came first to the sepulchre.
5 And he stooping
down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying;
yet went he not in.
6 Then cometh Simon
Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and
seeth the linen clothes lie,
7 And the napkin,
that was about his head, not lying with the linen
clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself.
8 Then went in also
that other disciple, which came first to the sepulchre,
and he saw, and believed.
9 For as yet they
knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the
10 Then the
disciples went away again unto their own home.
11 ¶ But Mary
stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept,
she stooped down, and looked into the sepulchre,
12 And seeth two
angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the
other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.
13 And they say
unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them,
Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not
where they have laid him.
14 And when she had
thus said, she turned herself back, and saw Jesus
standing, and knew not that it was Jesus.
15 Jesus saith unto
her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She,
supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if
thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid
him, and I will take him away.
16 Jesus saith unto
her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him,
Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
17 Jesus saith unto
her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my
Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I
ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my
God, and your God.
18 Mary Magdalene
came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord,
and that he had spoken these things unto her.
