1Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.2And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.3And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.4And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:5And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?6He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,7Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.8And they remembered his words,9And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest.10It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles.11And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.12Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.13And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs.14And they talked together of all these things which had happened.15And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.16But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.17And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?18And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?19And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:20And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.21But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.22Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;23And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.24And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.25Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:26Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?27And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.28And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.29But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.30And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.31And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.32And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?33And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,34Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.35And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.36And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.37But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.38And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?39Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.40And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.41And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?42And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.43And he took it, and did eat before them.44And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.45Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,46And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:47And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.48And ye are witnesses of these things.49And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.50And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.51And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.52And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:53And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
English Standard Version
1But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. (Mt 28:1; Mr 16:1; Lu 23:56; Joh 20:1)2And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, (Mt 27:60; Mr 15:46)3but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.4While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. (Joh 20:12; Ac 1:10; Ac 10:30)5And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? (Lu 24:37)6He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, (Mt 17:22; Mr 9:30; Lu 9:22; Lu 9:44; Lu 24:44)7that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.” (Mt 20:19; Lu 9:22; Lu 13:33; Lu 24:6)8And they remembered his words, (Joh 2:22; Joh 12:1)9and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. (Joh 20:18)10Now it was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles, (Mt 27:56; Mr 15:40; Lu 8:3)11but these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them. (Mr 16:11; Mr 16:16)12But Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; and he went home marveling at what had happened. (Joh 19:40; Joh 20:3)
On the Road to Emmaus
13That very day two of them were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, (Mr 16:12)14and they were talking with each other about all these things that had happened.15While they were talking and discussing together, Jesus himself drew near and went with them.16But their eyes were kept from recognizing him. (Lu 9:45; Lu 18:34; Lu 24:31; Joh 20:14; Joh 21:4)17And he said to them, “What is this conversation that you are holding with each other as you walk?” And they stood still, looking sad.18Then one of them, named Cleopas, answered him, “Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?”19And he said to them, “What things?” And they said to him, “Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, a man who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, (Mt 21:11; Ac 2:22; Ac 7:22)20and how our chief priests and rulers delivered him up to be condemned to death, and crucified him. (Lu 23:13; Lu 23:35; Joh 3:1; Joh 7:26; Joh 7:48; Joh 12:42; Ac 2:23; Ac 3:17; Ac 4:5; Ac 4:8; Ac 5:30; Ac 13:27; 1Co 2:8; 1Th 2:15)21But we had hoped that he was the one to redeem Israel. Yes, and besides all this, it is now the third day since these things happened. (Lu 1:68; Lu 24:7; 1Pe 1:18)22Moreover, some women of our company amazed us. They were at the tomb early in the morning, (Lu 24:1)23and when they did not find his body, they came back saying that they had even seen a vision of angels, who said that he was alive. (Lu 24:3; Lu 24:4; Lu 24:9)24Some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but him they did not see.” (Lu 24:12; Joh 20:3)25And he said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken!26Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?” (Mt 1:17; Lu 9:26; Lu 24:7; Lu 24:44; Lu 24:46; Ac 3:18; Heb 2:10; Heb 12:2; 1Pe 1:11)27And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself. (Ge 3:15; Ge 12:3; Ge 22:18; Nu 21:9; Nu 24:17; 2Sa 7:12; Isa 7:14; Isa 9:6; Isa 50:6; Isa 52:13; Isa 61:1; Jer 23:5; Da 7:13; Da 9:24; Mic 5:2; Zec 6:12; Zec 9:9; Zec 12:10; Zec 13:7; Joh 1:45; Joh 5:46; Ac 8:35; Ac 13:27)28So they drew near to the village to which they were going. He acted as if he were going farther, (Mr 6:48)29but they urged him strongly, saying, “Stay with us, for it is toward evening and the day is now far spent.” So he went in to stay with them. (Lu 9:12)30When he was at table with them, he took the bread and blessed and broke it and gave it to them. (Mt 14:19)31And their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And he vanished from their sight. (Lu 4:30; Lu 24:16)32They said to each other, “Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scriptures?” (Ps 39:3; Lu 24:45)33And they rose that same hour and returned to Jerusalem. And they found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together, (Mr 16:13; Ac 1:14; Ac 17:3)34saying, “The Lord has risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!” (1Co 15:5)35Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he was known to them in the breaking of the bread. (Lu 24:30; Ac 2:42)
