XVI.  And the sabbath being past, Mary the Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, that they might come and anoint him.

2And very early, on the first day of the week, they come to the sepulchre, when the sun was risen.

3And they said to one another: Who will roll away the stone for us, out of the door of the sepulchre?

4And looking up, they see that the stone has been rolled away. For it was very great.

5And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a white robe; and they were affrighted.

6And he says to them: Be not affrighted. Ye are seeking Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He is risen; he is not here. Behold the place where they laid him.

7But go, say to his disciples, and to Peter, that he goes before you into Galilee. There shall ye see him, as he said to you.

8And they went out, and fled from the sepulchre; for trembling and astonishment seized them. And they said nothing to any one; for they were afraid.

9And having risen early, on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary the Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons.

10She went and reported it to those who had been with him, as they mourned and wept.

11And they, hearing that he is alive, and was seen by her, believed not.

12After that he appeared in another form to two of them, as they walked, going into the country.

13They also went and reported it to the rest; nor did they believe them.

14Afterward he appeared to the eleven themselves as they reclined at table, and upbraided their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not those who saw him after he was risen.

15And he said to them: Go into all the world, and preach the good news to every creature.

16He that believes and is immersed shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be condemned.

17And these signs shall accompany those who have believed; in my name they shall cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues;

18they 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.

19The Lord therefore, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sat down on the right hand of God;

20and they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word by the signs that followed.
