Matthew 28:1-10 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

28 But in the eventide of the sabbath [Forsooth in the evening of the sabbath, or holiday], that beginneth to shine in the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene came, and another Mary, to see the sepulchre.

And lo! there was made a great earth-shaking; for the angel of the Lord came down from heaven, and approached, and turned away the stone[a], and sat thereon.

And his looking was as lightning, and his clothes as snow; [Soothly his looking was as lightning, and his clothes white as snow;]

and for dread of him the keepers were afeared, and they were made as dead men.

But the angel answered, and said to the women, Do not ye dread, for I know that ye seek Jesus, that was crucified;

he is not here, for he is risen, as he said; come ye, and see ye the place [come ye, and see the place], where the Lord was laid.

And go ye soon, and say ye to his disciples [And ye going soon, say to his disciples], that he is risen. And lo! he shall go before you into Galilee; there ye shall see him. Lo! I have before-said to you.

And they went out soon from the burials [And they went out soon from the sepulchre], with dread and great joy, running to tell to his disciples.

And lo! Jesus met them, and said [saying], Hail ye. And they approached[b], and held his feet, and worshipped him.

10 Then Jesus said to them, Do not ye dread; go ye, tell ye to my brethren, that they go into Galilee; there they shall see me.

Matthew 28:1-10 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

The resurrection of Christ. The high priests give the soldiers a large sum of money to say that Christ was stolen out of his grave. Christ appears to his disciples, and sends them forth to preach and to baptize.

28 At the close of the Sabbath day, which is in the dawn of the morrow after the Sabbath, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the sepulchre. And behold, there was a great earthquake. For the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightening, and his raiment white as snow. And for fear of him the guards were overwhelmed, and became as dead men.

The angel spoke and said to the women, Fear not: I know that you seek Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here. He is risen, as he said. Come and see the place where the Lord was put. And go quickly and tell his disciples that he is risen from death. And behold, he will go before you into Galilee; there you will see him. Lo, I have told you.

And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy, and did run to bring his disciples word. And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All Hail! And they came and held him by the feet and worshipped him. 10 Then said Jesus to them, Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brethren to go into Galilee, and there they will see me.

Matthew 28:1-10 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

28 1 The women go to the sepulcher. 2 The Angel. 9 The women see Christ. 18 He sendeth his Apostles to preach.

Now in [a]the [b]end of the Sabbath, when the first day of the week [c]began to dawn, Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, came to see the sepulcher.

And behold, there was a great earthquake: for the Angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

And his [d]countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow.

And for fear of him, the keepers were astonied, and became as dead men.

But the Angel answered, and said to the women, Fear [e]ye not: for I know that ye seek Jesus which was crucified:

He is not here, for he is risen, as he said: come, see the place where the Lord was laid,

And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead: and behold, he goeth before you into Galilee: there ye shall see him: lo, I have told you.

So they departed quickly from the sepulcher, with fear and great joy, and did run to bring his disciples word.

[f]And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus also met them, saying, God save you. And they came, and took him by the feet, and worshipped him.

10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid. Go, and tell my brethren, that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

Matthew 28:1-10 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

28 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: and for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, 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, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him. 10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
