The Gospel of Mark
Chapter 16

Chapter 16

1 And when the sabbath
was past, Mary Magdalene,
and Mary the mother of
James, and Salome, bought
spices, that they might come
and anoint him.
2 And very early on the first
day of the week, they come
to the tomb when the sun
was risen.
3 And they were saying
among themselves, Who
shall roll us away the stone
from the door of the tomb?
4 and looking up, they see
that the stone is rolled back:
for it was exceeding great.
5 And entering into the
tomb, they saw a young man
sitting on the right side,
arrayed in a white robe; and
they were amazed.
6 And he saith unto them,
Be not amazed: ye seek
Jesus, the Nazarene, who
hath been crucified: he is
risen; he is not here: behold,
the place where they laid
7 But go, tell his disciples
and Peter, He goeth before
you into Galilee: there shall
ye see him, as he said unto
8 And they went out, and
fled from the tomb; for
trembling and astonishment
had come upon them: and
they said nothing to any one;
for they were afraid.

(NOTE: The earliest
manuscripts of the Gospel of
Mark do not include the verses
that follow verse 8, and
two different endings were
added to the gospel in later
times by the church. The
typical ending follows…)

9 Now when he was risen
early on the first day of the
week, he appeared first to
Mary Magdalene, from
whom he had cast out seven

10 She went and told them
that had been with him, as
they mourned and wept.

11 And they, when they
heard that he was alive, and
had been seen of her,
12 And after these things he
was manifested in another
form unto two of them, as
they walked, on their way
into the country.
13 And they went away and
told it unto the rest: neither
believed they them.
14 And afterward he was
manifested unto the eleven
themselves as they sat at
meat; and he upbraided them
with their unbelief and
hardness of heart, because
they believed not them that
had seen him after he was

15 And he said unto them,
Go ye into all the world, and
preach the gospel to the
whole creation.

16 He that believeth and is
baptized shall be saved; but
he that disbelieveth shall be
17 And these signs shall
accompany them that
believe: in my name shall
they cast out demons; they
shall speak with new
18 they shall take up
serpents, and if they drink
any deadly thing, it shall in no
wise hurt them; they shall lay
hands on the sick, and they
shall recover.

19 So then the Lord Jesus,
after he had spoken unto
them, was received up into
heaven, and sat down at the
right hand of God.
20 And they went forth, and
preached everywhere, the
Lord working with them, and
confirming the word by the
signs that followed. Amen.

and his raiment white as

of him the watchers did
quake, and became as dead

unto the women, Fear not
ye; for I know that ye seek
Jesus, who hath been

here; for he is risen, even as
he said. Come, see the place
where the Lord lay.

quickly, and tell his disciples,
He is risen from the dead;

therefore, and make

these things unto the

upon serpents and

nothing shall in any wise hurt
