1 And when the Sabbath had passed, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought aromatic spices, so that when they arrived they could anoint Jesus.
2 And very early in the morning, on the first of the Sabbaths, they went to the tomb, the sun having now risen.
3 And they said to one another, "Who will roll back the stone for us, away from the entrance of the tomb?"
4 And looking, they saw that the stone was rolled back. For certainly it was very large.
5 And upon entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, covered with a white robe, and they were astonished.
6 And he said to them, "Do not become frightened. You are seeking Jesus of Nazareth, the Crucified One. He has risen. He is not here. Behold, the place where they laid him.
7 But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you into Galilee. There you shall see him, just as he told you."
8 But they, going out, fled from the tomb. For trembling and fear had overwhelmed them. And they said nothing to anyone. For they were afraid.
9 But he, rising early on the first Sabbath, appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons.
10 She went and announced it to those who had been with him, while they were mourning and weeping.
11 And they, upon hearing that he was alive and that he had been seen by her, did not believe it.
12 But after these events, he was shown in another likeness to two of them walking, as they were going out to the countryside.
13 And they, returning, reported it to the others; neither did they believe them.
14 Finally, he appeared to the eleven, as they sat at table. And he rebuked them for their incredulity and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen that he had risen again.
15 And he said to them: "Go forth to the whole world and preach the Gospel to every creature.
16 Whoever will have believed and been baptized will be saved. Yet truly, whoever will not have believed will be condemned.
17 Now these signs will accompany those who believe. In my name, they shall cast out demons. They will speak in new languages.
18 They will take up serpents, and, if they drink anything deadly, it will not harm them. They shall lay their hands upon the sick, and they will be well."
19 And indeed, the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and he sits at the right hand of God.
20 Then they, setting out, preached everywhere, with the Lord cooperating and confirming the word by the accompanying signs.

Resurrection Morning
1When#Mt 28:1; Lk 24:1-2 the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene,#Mk 15:40 Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they could go and anoint him. 2Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week,#Ac 20:7; 1Co 16:2 they went to the tomb#Jn 5:28 at sunrise. 3They were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone from the entrance to the tomb for us?” 4Looking up, they noticed that the stone — which was very large — had been rolled away.
5When#Mt 28:5-8; Lk 24:3-8; Jn 20:1-2 they entered the tomb,#Jn 5:28 they saw a young man#Lk 7:14 dressed#Lk 12:27 in a white#Rv 3:4 robe sitting on the right side; they were alarmed. 6“Don’t be alarmed,” he told them. “You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth,#Mk 14:67 who was crucified. He has risen!#1Co 15:4 He is not here. See the place where they put him. 7But go, tell his disciples and Peter,#Lk 6:14 ‘He is going ahead of you to Galilee;#Mt 17:22 you will see him there just as he told you.’”
8They went out and ran from the tomb,#Jn 5:28 because trembling and astonishment overwhelmed them. And they said nothing to anyone,#Mk 1:44; 4:40 since they were afraid.
[Some of the earliest mss conclude with 16:8.]#16:8 Other mss include vv. 9-20 as a longer ending. The following shorter ending is found in some mss between v. 8 and v. 9 and in one ms after v. 8 (each of which omits vv. 9-20): And all that had been commanded to them they quickly reported to those around Peter. After these things, Jesus himself sent out through them from east to west, the holy and imperishable proclamation of eternal salvation. Amen.
The Longer Ending of Mark: Appearances of the Risen Lord
[ 9Early#Jn 20:11-18 on the first day of the week,#Lk 24:1; Ac 20:7; 1Co 16:2 after he had risen,#Lk 18:33; Ac 2:24 he appeared first to Mary Magdalene,#Mk 15:40 out of whom he had driven seven demons.#Mk 3:15; Lk 8:2 10She went and reported to those who had been with him, as they were mourning and weeping. 11Yet, when they heard that he was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe it.#Lk 24:5,11,23
12After this, he appeared#Jn 21:1; 2Co 4:11 in a different form to two of them walking on their way into the country.#Lk 24:13-35 13And they went and reported it to the rest, who did not believe them either.
The Great Commission
14Later he appeared to the Eleven#Lk 24:9 themselves as they were reclining at the table. He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who saw him after he had risen.#Lk 24:38,41 15Then#Mt 28:16-20 he said to them, “Go into all the world#Mt 13:38; 1Jn 2:2 and preach the gospel to all creation.#Rm 8:22 16Whoever believes#Mk 11:24; Jn 3:16; Ac 10:43; Rm 10:9; 1Pt 1:8-10 and is baptized will be saved,#Ac 2:38; 22:16 but whoever does not believe will be condemned.#Mt 12:41; Jn 3:18,36; 5:11; 20:23 17And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues;#16:17 = languages 18they will pick up snakes; #16:18 Other mss add with their hands#Lk 10:19; Ac 28:3-6 if they should drink anything deadly, it will not harm#Ac 28:5 them; they will lay hands on#Ac 9:12,17; 1Tm 5:22 the sick, and they will get well.”
The Ascension
19So the Lord Jesus, after speaking to them,#Lk 24:3 was taken up into heaven#Lk 24:51; Ac 1:2,11,22; 1Tm 3:16 and sat down at the right hand#Lk 22:69; Heb 10:12 of God. 20And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word by the accompanying signs.]
