Mark 16

Mark 16:1  
When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint him.

Mark 16:2  
Very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen.

Mark 16:3  
They were saying among themselves, “Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?”

Mark 16:4  
for it was very big. Looking up, they saw that the stone was rolled back.

Mark 16:5  
Entering into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe; and they were amazed.

Mark 16:6  
He said to them, “Don’t be amazed. You seek Jesus, the Nazarene, who has been crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him!

Mark 16:7  
But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He goes before you into Galilee. There you will see him, as he said to you.’ ”

Mark 16:8  
They went out, and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had come on them. They said nothing to anyone; for they were afraid.

Mark 16:9  
Now when he had risen early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons.

Mark 16:10  
She went and told those who had been with him, as they mourned and wept.

Mark 16:11  
When they heard that he was alive and had been seen by her, they disbelieved.

Mark 16:12  
After these things he was revealed in another form to two of them as they walked, on their way into the country.

Mark 16:13  
They went away and told it to the rest. They didn’t believe them, either.

Mark 16:14  
Afterward he was revealed to the eleven themselves as they sat at the table; and he rebuked them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they didn’t believe those who had seen him after he had risen.

Mark 16:15  
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to the whole creation.

Mark 16:16  
He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who disbelieves will be condemned.

Mark 16:17  
These signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new languages;

Mark 16:18  
they will take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it will in no way hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Mark 16:19  
So then the Lord, after he had spoken to them, was received up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God.

Mark 16:20  
They went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word by the signs that followed. Amen.
