(B)His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like (C)dead men.

But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, (D)as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed (E)He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.”
