Bible, Ethician Version
 Now when
Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold,
there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.
 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:
 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.
 But when Herod was dead,
 And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of Israel.
 In those days
came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
 And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.
 But when he saw many of the Pharisees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.
 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
 Now when
Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;
 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.
 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.
 And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.
 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.
 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.
 And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan.
 And seeing
the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples
came unto him:
 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the
hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of
men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy God which is in secret; and thy Godwhich seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
 Give us this day our daily bread.
 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast.
 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;
 That thou appear not unto men to fast.
 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.
 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns?
 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
 Judge not,
that ye be not judged.
 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
 When he was
come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.
 And as Jesus
passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt
of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.
 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.
 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?
 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.
 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
 And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
 But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.
 Behold, I
send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as
serpents, and harmless as doves.
 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another.
 And it came
to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he
departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities.
 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
 At that time
Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were an
hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat.
 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day.
 Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless?
 But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.
 But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.
 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?
 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.
 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;
 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.
 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?
 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.
 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
 The same day
went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.
 And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?
 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.
 And he
called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
 How think
ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not
leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which
is gone astray?
 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.
 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.
 Then were
there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them,
and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.
 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
 And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.
 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?
 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
 Then went
the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.
 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.
 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.
 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?
 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.
 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.
 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.
 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,
 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
 This is the first and great commandment.
 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
 Then spake
Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,
 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.
 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,
 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,
 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.
 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!
 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?
 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.
 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?
 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.
 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.
 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,
 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:
 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
 And Jesus
went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to
shew him the buildings of the temple.
 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
 Behold, I have told you before.
 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
 For I was an
hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a
stranger, and ye took me in:
 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the
people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,
 And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.
 But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.
 And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled.
 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;
 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,
 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.
 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death.
 Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands,
 Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?
 Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.
 But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest.
 And when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto them that were there, This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth.
 And again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.
 And after a while came unto him they that stood by, and said to Peter, Surely thou also art one of them; for thy speech bewrayeth thee.
 Then began he to curse and to swear, saying, I know not the man. And immediately the cock crew.
 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.
 When the
morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel
against Jesus to put him to death:
 And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.
 And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.
 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?
 And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly.
 Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.
 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?
 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.
 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.
 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.
 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.
 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.
 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.
 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.
 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
 And sitting down they watched him there;
 One of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
 And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:
 Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's children.
 When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple:
 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.
 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.
 As it began
to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary
to see the sepulchre.
 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
 Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done.
 Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept.
 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations:
 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
