Luke 24 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

24 But in one day of the week full early they came to the grave, and brought sweet smelling spices, that they had arrayed [bringing sweet spices, which they had made ready].

And they found the stone turned away from the grave.

And they went in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

And it was done, the while [while] they were astonished in thought of this thing, lo! two men stood beside them in shining cloak[a].

And when they dreaded, and bowed their semblance into the earth, they said to them, What seek ye him that liveth with dead men [What seek ye the living with the dead]?

He is not here, but is risen. Have ye mind, how he spake to you, when he was yet in Galilee,

and said [saying], For it behooveth man's Son to be betaken into the hands of sinful men, and to be crucified, and the third day to rise again.

And they bethought on his words.

And they went again from the grave, and told all these things to the eleven, and to all [the] others.

10 And there was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary of James, and other women that were with them, that said to the apostles these things [that said these things to the apostles].

11 And these words were seen to them as madness [And these words were seen before them as madness], and they believed not to them.

12 But Peter rose up, and ran to the grave; and he bowed down, and saw the linen clothes lying alone. And he went by himself, wondering on that that was done.[b]

13 And lo! twain of them went in that day into a castle [And lo! two of them went in that day to a castle], that was from Jerusalem the space of sixty furlongs, by name Emmaus.

14 And they spake together of all these things that had befallen.

15 And it was done, the while they talked, and sought by themselves, Jesus himself approached, and went with them. [And it was done, while they talked, and sought with themselves, and Jesus himself nighing, went with them.]

16 But their eyes were holden, that they knew him not.

17 And he said to them, What be these words, that ye speak together wandering, and ye be sorrowful?

18 And one, whose name was Cleopas, answered, and said [to him], Thou thyself art a pilgrim in Jerusalem[c], and hast thou not known, what things be done in it in these days?

19 To whom he said, What things? And they said to him, Of Jesus of Nazareth, that was a man prophet, mighty in work and word before God and all the people;

20 and how the high priests and our princes betook him into condemnation of death [and how the highest priests and our princes betook him into damnation of death], and crucified him.

21 But we hoped, that he should have again-bought Israel. And now on all these things the third day is to day, that these things were done.

22 But also some women of ours made us afeared, which before day were at the grave [which before the light were at the grave];

23 and when his body was not found, they came, and said, that they saw also a sight of angels [they came, saying, them also to have seen a sight of angels], which said, that he liveth.

24 And some [men] of ours went to the grave, and they found so as the women said, but they found not him [but him they found not].

25 And he said to them, A! fools [O! fools], and slow of heart to believe in all things that the prophets have spoken.

26 Whether it behooved not Christ to suffer these things, and so to enter into his glory?

27 And he began at Moses and at all the prophets, and declared to them in all scriptures, that were of him. [And he beginning at Moses and all the prophets, expounded to them in all scriptures, which were of him.]

28 And they came nigh to the castle, whither they went. And he made countenance that he would go further.

29 And they constrained him, and said [saying], Dwell with us, for it draweth to night, and the day is now bowed down. And he entered [in] with them.

30 And it was done, while he sat at the meat with them, he took bread, and blessed, and brake, and took to them [and gave to them].

31 And the eyes of them were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished from their eyes.

32 And they said together, Whether our heart was not burning in us, while he spake to us in the way, and [he] opened to us [the] scriptures?

33 And they rose up in the same hour, and went again into Jerusalem [to Jerusalem], and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,

34 saying, That the Lord is risen verily, and appeared to Simon.

35 And they told what things were done in the way, and how they knew him in breaking of bread.

36 And while they spake these things, Jesus stood in the middle of them, and said to them, Peace to you; I am, do not ye dread.

37 But they were afraid and aghast, and guessed them to see a spirit.

38 And he said to them, What be ye troubled, and thoughts come up into your hearts [and thoughts ascend up into your hearts]?

39 See ye my hands and my feet, for I myself am. Feel ye, and see ye; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see that I have [as ye see me to have].

40 And when he had said this thing, he showed hands and feet to them.

41 And yet while they believed not, and wondered for joy, he said, Have ye here any thing that shall be eaten [Have ye any thing here that shall be eaten]?

42 And they proffered to him [And they offered to him] a part of a fish roasted, and an honeycomb.

43 And when he had eaten before them, he took that that (was) left, and gave to them; [And when he had eaten before them, he taking the reliefs, gave to them;]

44 and [he] said to them, These be the words that I spake to you [and he said to them, These be the words which I spake to you], when I was yet with you; for it is need that all things be fulfilled, that be written in the law of Moses [which be written in the law of Moses], and in prophets, and in psalms, of me.

45 Then he opened to them wit [Then he opened wit to them], that they should understand [the] scriptures.

46 And he said to them, For thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and rise again from death the third day [and to rise again from dead the third day];

47 and penance and remission of sins to be preached in his name to all folks, beginning at Jerusalem.

48 And ye be witnesses of these things.

49 And I shall send the promise of my Father into you [And I send the promise of my Father into you]; but sit ye in the city, till ye be clothed with virtue from on high.

50 And he led them forth into Bethany, and when his hands were lifted up [and, his hands lifted up], he blessed them.

51 And it was done, the while he blessed them [while he blessed them], he departed from them, and was borne into heaven.

52 And they worshipped, and went again into Jerusalem with great joy, [And they worshipping went again to Jerusalem with great joy;]

53 and were evermore in the temple [and were ever in the temple], praising and blessing God.

Luke 24 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

The women come to the grave. Christ appears to the two disciples on their way to Emmaus, stands in the midst of his disciples, opens their understanding in the scriptures, gives them a charge, and ascends up to heaven.

24 On the morrow after the Sabbath, early in the morning, the women went to the tomb, bringing the spices they had prepared and other women with them. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre, and went in, but did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. And it happened as they wondered at this, behold, two men stood by them in shining vestures.

And as the women became afraid and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said to them, Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen. Remember how he spoke to you when he was yet with you in Galilee, saying that the Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and the third day rise again?

And they remembered his words, and returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. 10 It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary Jacobi, and others that were with them, who told these things to the apostles. 11 But their words seemed to them like vain things, and they did not believe them.

12 Then Peter arose and ran to the sepulchre, and stooped in and saw the linen cloths laid by themselves. And he departed, wondering in himself at that which had happened.

13 And behold, two of them set out that same day for a town called Emmaus, which was about sixty furlongs from Jerusalem, 14 and they talked together about all these things that had happened. 15 And it so was, as they conversed together and discussed, that Jesus himself drew near and went alongside them. 16 But their eyes were held, so they could not know him. 17 And he said to them, What sort of conversations are these that you are having with each other as you walk and are sad?

18 And the one named Cleopas answered and said to him, Are you only a stranger in Jerusalem, and do not know about the things that have happened there in these days?

19 Jesus said to them, What things?

And they said to him, Of Jesus of Nazareth, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, 20 and how the high priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. 21 But we trusted that it was he who would deliver Israel. And regarding all these things, today is just the third day since they happened. 22 Yea, and also certain women of our company have us mystified. They went early to the sepulchre, 23 but did not find his body, and came saying that they had seen a vision of angels who said that he was alive. 24 And some of those who were with us went their way to the sepulchre and found it just as the women had said, but they did not see him.

25 And he said to them, O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into his glory?

27 And he began at Moses and at all the prophets, and interpreted to them all the scriptures that were written about him. 28 And they drew near the town they were headed to, and Jesus made as though he would have gone further. 29 But they constrained him, saying, Stay with us, for it is drawing towards night and the day is far past. And he went in to stay with them.

30 And it came to pass, as he sat at food with them, he took bread, blessed it, broke, and gave to them. 31 And their eyes were opened and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. 32 And they said between themselves, Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked with us along the road and as he opened to us the scriptures?

33 And they rose up the same hour and returned again to Jerusalem. And they found the eleven gathered together, and those who were with them, 34 who said, The Lord is risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!

35 And the two told what things had happened along the road, and how they knew him in the breaking of bread.

36 As they were thus speaking, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them and said to them, Peace be with you. 37 And they were startled and afraid, supposing they saw a spirit. 38 And he said to them, Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? 39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is even I myself. Handle me and see. For spirits do not have flesh and bones, as you see me to have.

40 And when he had thus spoken, he showed them his hands and his feet. 41 And while they still could not believe for joy and wonderment, he said to them, Have you any food here? 42 And they gave him a piece of broiled fish and some honeycomb. 43 And he took it and ate it before them.

44 And he said to them, These are the things that I told to you while I was still with you: that all must be fulfilled that was written about me in the law of Moses, and in the Prophets, and in the Psalms.

45 Then he opened their wits to understand the scriptures, 46 and said to them, Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for Christ to suffer, and to rise again from death the third day, 47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, and must begin at Jerusalem. 48 And you are witnesses of these things. 49 And behold, I will send the promise of my Father upon you. But stay in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.

50 And he led them out into Bethany, and lifted up his hands and blessed them. 51 And it came to pass, as he blessed them, he departed from them and was carried up into heaven.

52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, 53 and were continually in the temple, praising and lauding God.

Amen.

Luke 24 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

24 The women come to the sepulchre. 9 They report that which they heard of the Angels, unto the Apostles. 13 Christ doth accompany two going to Emmaus. 27 He expoundeth the Scriptures unto them. 39 He offereth himself to his Apostles to be handled. 49 He promiseth the holy Ghost. 51 He is carried up into heaven.

Now the [a]first day of the week [b]early in the morning, they came unto the sepulcher, and brought the odors which they had prepared, and certain women with them.

And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulcher,

And went in, but found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

And it came to pass, that as they were amazed thereat, behold, two men suddenly stood by them in shining vestures.

And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said to them, Why seek ye him that liveth, among the dead?

He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you, when he was yet in Galilee,

Saying, that the Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

And they remembered his words,

[c]And returned from the sepulcher, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the remnant.

10 Now it was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women with them which told these things unto the Apostles.

11 But their words seemed unto them as a feigned thing, neither believed they them.

12 [d]Then arose Peter and ran unto the sepulcher, and [e]looked in and saw the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.

13 [f]And behold two of them went that same day to a town which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs, called Emmaus.

14 And they talked together of all these things that were done.

15 And it came to pass, as they communed together, and reasoned, that Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.

16 [g]But their eyes were holden, that they could not know him.

17 And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another as ye walk and are sad?

18 And [h]the one (named Cleopas) answered and said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass therein in these days?

19 And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Of Jesus of Nazareth, which was a Prophet, mighty indeed and in word before God, and all people,

20 [i]And how the high Priests, and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.

21 But we trusted that it had been he that should have delivered Israel, and as touching all these things, today is the third day, that they were done.

22 Yea, and certain women among us made us astonied, which came early unto the sepulcher.

23 And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of Angels, which said, that he was alive.

24 Therefore certain of them which were with us, went to the sepulcher, and found it even so as the women had said, but him they saw not.

25 Then he said unto them, O fools and slow of heart to believe all that the Prophets have spoken!

26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?

27 And he began at Moses, and at all the Prophets, and interpreted unto them in all the Scriptures the things which were written of him.

28 And they drew near unto the town, which they went to, but he made as though he would have gone further.

29 But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us, for it is towards night, and the day is far spent. So he went in to tarry with them.

30 And it came to pass, as he sat at table with them, he took the bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave it to them.

31 Then their eyes were opened, and they knew him: and he was [j]no more seen of them.

32 And they said between themselves, Did not our hearts burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and when he opened to us the Scriptures?

33 And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,

34 Which said, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.

35 Then they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in [k]breaking of bread.

36 [l]And as they spake these things, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and said unto them, Peace be to you.

37 But they were abashed and afraid, supposing that they had seen a spirit.

38 Then he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and wherefore do [m]doubts arise in your hearts?

39 Behold mine hands and my feet: for it is I myself: handle me, and see: for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

40 And when he had thus spoken, he showed them his hands and feet.

41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?

42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb,

43 And he took it, and did eat before them.

44 [n]And he said unto them, These are the words, which I spake unto you while I was yet with you, that all must be fulfilled which are written of me in the Law of Moses, and in the Prophets, and in the Psalms.

45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the Scriptures,

46 And said unto them, Thus is it written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise again from the dead the third day,

47 And that repentance, and remission of sins should be preached in his Name among all nations, [o]beginning at Jerusalem.

48 Now ye are witnesses of these things.

49 And behold, I do send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, [p]until ye be endued with power from on high.

50 [q]Afterward he lead them out into Bethany, and lifted up his hands, and blessed them.

51 And it came to pass, that as he blessed them, he departed from them, and was carried up into heaven.

52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy,

53 And were continually in the Temple, praising, and lauding God. Amen.

Luke 24 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

24 Now 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. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: and as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. And they remembered his words, and returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest. 10 It 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. 11 And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not. 12 Then 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.

13 And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. 14 And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 15 And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. 16 But their eyes were holden that they should not know him. 17 And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad? 18 And 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? 19 And 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: 20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. 21 But 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. 22 Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; 23 and when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. 24 And 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. 25 Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: 26 ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? 27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

28 And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further. 29 But 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. 30 And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. 31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. 32 And 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? 33 And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them, 34 saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. 35 And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.

36 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. 37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. 38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? 39 Behold 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. 40 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet. 41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat? 42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. 43 And he took it, and did eat before them. 44 And 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. 45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, 46 and said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 And ye are witnesses of these things. 49 And, 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.

50 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. 51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. 52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: 53 and were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
