New American Standard Bible
9 [[[a]Now after He had risen early on the first day of the week, He first appeared to (A)Mary Magdalene, from whom He had cast out seven demons. 10 (B)She went and reported to those who had been with Him, while they were mourning and weeping. 11 And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, (C)they refused to believe it.
12 Now after that, (D)He appeared in a different form (E)to two of them while they were walking along on their way to the country. 13 And they went away and reported it to the rest, but they (F)did not believe them, either.
The Disciples Commissioned
14 Later (G)He appeared (H)to the eleven disciples themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He reprimanded them for their (I)unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen from the dead. 15 And He said to them, “(J)Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 (K)The one who has believed and has been baptized will be saved; but the one who has not believed will be condemned. 17 These signs will accompany those who have believed: (L)in My name they will cast out demons, they will (M)speak with new tongues; 18 they will (N)pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not harm them; they will (O)lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
19 So then, when the Lord Jesus had (P)spoken to them, He (Q)was received up into heaven and (R)sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them, and confirmed the word by the signs that followed.]]
[[[b]And they promptly reported all these instructions to Peter and his companions. And after that, Jesus Himself also sent out through them from east to west the sacred and imperishable proclamation of eternal salvation.]]Read full chapter
