2 Then she runnethand cometh to Simon Peterand to the otherdisciplewhom Jesus lovedand saith unto themThey havetaken away the LORD out of the sepulchreand we know notwhere they have laid him.

3 Peter therefore went forthand that other discipleand cameto the sepulchre.

4 So they ran both togetherand the other disciple did outrunPeterand came first to the sepulchre.

5 And he stooping downand looking insaw the linen clotheslyingyet went he not in.

6 Then cometh Simon Peter following himand went into thesepulchreand seeth the linen clothes lie

7 And the napkinthat was about his headnot lying with thelinen clothesbut wrapped together in a place by itself.

8 Then went in also that other disciplewhich came first to thesepulchreand he sawand believed.

9 For as yet they knew not the scripturethat he must riseagain from the dead.

10 Then the disciples went away again unto their own home.

11 But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weepingand as sheweptshe stooped downand looked into the sepulchre

12 And seeth two angels in white sittingthe one at the headand the other at the feetwhere the body of Jesus had lain.

13 And they say unto herWomanwhy weepest thouShe saith untothemBecause they have taken away my LORDand I know notwhere they have laid him.

14 And when she had thus saidshe turned herself backand sawJesus standingand knew not that it was Jesus.

15 Jesus saith unto herWomanwhy weepest thouwhom seekestthouShesupposing him to be the gardenersaith unto him Sirif thou have borne him hencetell me where thou hastlaid himand I will take him away.

16 Jesus saith unto herMary. She turned herselfand saith untohimRabboniwhich is to sayMaster.

17 Jesus saith unto herTouch me notfor I am not yet ascendedto my Fatherbut go to my brethrenand say unto themIascend unto my Fatherand your Fatherand to my Godandyour God.

18 Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seenthe LORDand that he had spoken these things unto her.

19 Then the same day at eveningbeing the first day of the week when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembledfor fear of the Jewscame Jesus and stood in the midstandsaith unto themPeace be unto you.

20 And when he had so saidhe shewed unto them his hands and hisside. Then were the disciples gladwhen they saw the LORD.

21 Then said Jesus to them againPeace be unto youas my Fatherhath sent meeven so send I you.

22 And when he had said thishe breathed on themand saith untothemReceive ye the Holy Ghost

23 Whose soever sins ye remitthey are remitted unto themandwhose soever sins ye retainthey are retained.

24 But Thomasone of the twelvecalled Didymuswas not withthem when Jesus came.

25 The other disciples therefore said unto himWe have seen theLORD. But he said unto themExcept I shall see in his handsthe print of the nailsand put my finger into the print ofthe nailsand thrust my hand into his sideI will notbelieve.
