Matthew 28:11-15 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

11 And when they were gone [And when they had gone], lo! some of the keepers came into the city, and told to the princes of priests all things that were done.

12 And when they were gathered together with the elder men, and had taken their counsel, they gave to the knights much money,

13 and said, Say ye, that his disciples came by night, and have stolen him, while ye slept. [saying, Say ye, for his disciples came by night, and have stolen him, us sleeping.]

14 And if this be heard of the justice [And if this be heard of the president, or justice], we shall counsel him, and make you secure.

15 And when the money was taken, they did, as they were taught. And this word is published among the Jews, till into this day.

Matthew 28:11-15 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

11 When they had gone, some of the guards went into the city and told to the high priests all the things that had happened. 12 And they gathered them together with the elders and took counsel, and gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, 13 saying, Say that his disciples came by night and stole him away while you slept. 14 And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will appease him and keep you out of trouble.

15 And the soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story is circulated among the Jews to this day.

11 [a]Now when they were gone, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and showed unto the high Priests all the things that were done.
