Coverdale(i) 1 Bvt vpon one of the Sabbathes very early in the mornynge, they came vnto the Sepulcre, and brought ye spyces which they had prepared, and certayne wemen with the. 2 Neuertheles they founde the stone rolled awaye from the sepulcre, 3 and wente in, and founde not the body of ye LORDE Iesu. 4 And it happened as they were amased therat, beholde, there stode by them two men in shyninge garmentes. 5 And they were afrayed, and cast downe their faces to the earth. Then sayde they vnto the: What seke ye? the lyuynge amoge the deed? 6 He is not here. He is rysen vp. Remembre, how yt he tolde you wha he was yet in Galile, 7 and sayde: The sonne of man must be delyuered in to the hades of synners, and be crucified, and the thirde daye ryse agayne. 8 And they remebred his wordes, 9 and wente from the sepulcre, and tolde all this vnto the eleuen, and to all the other. 10 It was Mary Magdalene, and Iohanna, and Mary Iames, and the other with them, that tolde this vnto the Apostles. 11 And theyr wordes semed vnto them, as though they had bene but fables, and they beleued them not. 12 But Peter arose, and ranne to the sepulcre, and stouped in, and sawe the lynnen clothes layed by them selues, and departed. And he wondred within himself at that which had happened. 13 And beholde, two of them wente that same daye, to a towne (which was thre score furloges from Ierusalem) whose name was called Emaus. 14 And they talked together of all these thinges yt had happened. 15 And it chaunced as they were thus talkinge and reasonynge together, Iesus himself drue nye, and wente with them. 16 But their eyes were holden, that they shulde not knowe hi. 17 And he sayde vnto them: What maner of comunicacions are these that ye haue one to another as ye walke, and are sad? 18 Then answered the one, whose name was Cleophas, and sayde vnto him: Art thou onely a straunger at Ierusale, not knowinge what is come to passe there in these dayes? 19 And he sayde vnto the: What? They sayde vnto him: That of Iesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet, mightie in dede and worde, before God and all ye people, 20 how oure hye prestes and rulers delyuered him to the condemnacion of death, and crucified him. 21 But we hoped that he shulde haue delyuered Israel. And besydes all this, todaye is the thirde daye that this was done. 22 Yee & certayne wemen also of oure company which were early at the Sepulcre, 23 and founde not his body, came and tolde, that they had sene a visio of angels, which sayde he was alyue. 24 And certayne of them that were with vs, wente vnto the sepulcre, and founde it euen so as ye weme sayde, but hi founde they not. 25 And he sayde vnto the: O ye fooles and slowe of hert to beleue all that the prophetes haue spoke? 26 Ought not Christ to haue suffred these thinges, and to entre in to his glory? 27 And he beganne at Moses and at all the prophetes, and expounded vnto them all the scriptures, that were spoken of him. 28 And they drue nye vnto the towne, which they wete vnto, and he made as though he wolde haue gone farther. 29 And they compelled him, and sayde: Abyde with vs, for it draweth towardes night, and the daye is farre passed. And he wente in to tary with the. 30 And it came to passe whan he sat at the table with the, he toke the bred, gaue thankes, brake it, and gaue it them. 31 Then were their eyes opened, and they knewe him. And he vanyshed out of their sight. 32 And they sayde, betwene the selues: Dyd not oure hert burne with in vs, whan he talked with vs by the waye, whyle he opened the scriptures vnto vs? 33 And they rose vp the same houre, turned agayne to Ierusalem, and founde ye eleue gathered together, and them that were with them, which 34 sayde: The LORDE is rysen of a trueth, and hath appeared vnto Symon. 35 And they tolde the what had happened by ye waye, and how they knewe him in breakynge of the bred. 36 But whyle they were talkynge therof, Iesus himself stode in the myddes amonge the, and sayde: Peace be with you. 37 But they were abashed and afrayed, supposinge that they had sene a sprete. 38 And he saide vnto the: Why are ye abashed? & wherfore ryse there soch thoughtes in yor hertes? 39 Beholde my hades & my fete, it is euen I my self. Handle me, and se, for a sprete hath not flesh and bones, as ye se me haue. 40 And whan he had thus spoke, he shewed the his hodes and his fete. 41 But whyle they yet beleued not for ioye and wondred, he sayde vnto them: Haue ye eny thinge here to eate? 42 And they set before him a pece of a broyled fish, and an hony combe. 43 And he toke it, and ate it before the. 44 And he sayde vnto them: These are the wordes, which I spake vnto you, whyle I was yet with you. For it must all be fulfilled that was wrytten of me in the lawe of Moses, in the prophetes, & in the Psalmes. 45 The opened he their vnderstondinge, that they might vnderstonde the scriptures, 46 and sayde vnto them: Thus is it wrytte, and thus it behoued Christ to suffre, & the thirde daye to ryse agayne fro the deed, 47 and to let repentaunce and remyssion, of synnes be preached in his name amoge all nacions, and to begynne at Ierusale. 48 As for all these thinges, ye are wytnesses of the. 49 And beholde, I wil sende vpon you the promes of my father: but ye shal tary in the cite of Ierusalem, tyll ye be endewed with power from aboue. 50 But he led them out vnto Bethany, and lift vp his handes, and blessed them. 51 And it came to passe wha he blessed them, he departed from them, and was caried vp in to heauen. 52 And they worshipped him, and turned agayne to Ierusalem with greate ioye: 53 and were contynnally in ye teple, geuynge prayse and thankes vnto God. Amen.
