And many bodies of (C)the saints (D)who had fallen asleep were raised, 53 and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into (E)the holy city and appeared to many. 54 (F)When the centurion and those who were with him, (G)keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe and said, (H)“Truly this was the Son[a] of God!”
