28:1Upon the euenynge of the Sabbath holy daye, which dawneth ye morow of the first daye of ye Sabbathes, came Mary Magdalene and ye other Mary, to se ye sepulcre.
28:2And beholde, there was made a greate earthquake: for the angell of the LORDE descended from heauen, and came and rolled backe ye stone from the dore, and sat vpon it.
28:3And his countenaunce was as ye lightenynge, and his clothinge whyte as snowe.
28:4But ye watch me were troubled for feare of him, and became as though they were deed.
28:5The angell answered, and sayde vnto ye women: Be not ye afrayed. I knowe that ye seke Iesus that was crucified.
28:6He is not here. He is rysen, as he sayde. Come, and se ye place, where the LORDE was layed,
28:7and go youre waye soone, and tell his disciples, that he is rysen from the deed. And beholde, he wyl go before you in to Galile, there shal ye se him. Lo, I haue tolde you.
28:8And they departed from the graue in all the haist with feare and greate ioye, & ranne to brige his disciples worde.
28:9And as they were goinge to tell his disciples, beholde, Iesus met them, and sayde: God spede you. And they wente vnto him, and helde his fete, and fell downe before him.
28:10The sayde Iesus vnto them: Be not afrayed: go youre waye and tell my brethren, that they go in to Galile, there shal they se me.
28:11And whan they were gone, beholde, certayne of the watchmen came in to the cite, & tolde the hye prestes euery thinge that had happened.
28:12And they came together with the elders, and helde a councell, and gaue ye souders money ynough,
28:13and sayde: Saye ye: his disciples came by night, and stole him awaye, whyle we were a slepe.
28:14And yf this come to the debytes eares, we wyl styll him, and brynge it so to passe, that ye shal be safe.
28:15And they toke the money, and dyd as they were taught. And this sayenge is noysed amonge the Iewes vnto this daye.
28:16The eleuen disciples wente vnto Galile in to a mountayne, where Iesus had appoynted them.
28:17And whan they sawe him, they fell downe before him: but some of them douted.
28:18And Iesus came vnto them, talked with them, and sayde: Vnto me is geue all power in heauen and in earth.
28:19Go ye youre waye therfore, and teach all nacions, and baptyse them in the name of the father, and of the sonne, and of the holy goost:
28:20and teach them to kepe all thinges, what soeuer I haue commaunded you. And lo, I am with you euery daye vnto the ende of the worlde.

Coverdale Bible 1535

The Coverdale Bible, compiled by Myles Coverdale and published in 1535, was the first complete Modern English translation of the Bible with the Old and New Testament translated from the original Hebrew and Greek. The later editions (folio and quarto) published in 1539 were the first complete Bibles printed in England. The 1539 folio edition carried the royal licence and was therefore the first officially approved Bible translation in English.
