An angel declareth the resurrection of Christ to three women.
Mark 16:1 And whanne the sabat was passid, Marie Maudeleyne, and Marie of James, and Salomee bouyten swete smellynge oynementis, to come and to anoynte Jhesu. Mark 16:2 And ful eerli in oon of the woke daies, thei camen to the sepulcre, whanne the sunne was risun. Mark 16:3 And thei seiden togidere, Who schal meue awey to vs the stoon fro the dore of the sepulcre? Mark 16:4 And thei bihelden, and seien the stoon walewid awei, for it was ful greet. Mark 16:5 And thei yeden in to the sepulcre, and sayn a yonglyng, hilide with a white stole, sittynge at the riythalf; and thei weren afeerd. Mark 16:6 Which seith to hem, Nyle ye drede; ye seken Jhesu of Nazareth crucified; he is risun, he is not here; lo! the place where thei leiden hym. Mark 16:7 But go ye, and seie ye to hise disciplis, and to Petir, that he schal go bifor you in to Galilee; there ye schulen se hym, as he seide to you. Mark 16:8 And thei yeden out, and fledden fro the sepulcre; for drede and quakyng had assailed hem, and to no man thei seiden ony thing, for thei dredden.
Christ himself appeareth to Mary Magdalene:
Mark 16:9 And Jhesus roos eerli the firste dai of the woke, and apperid firste to Marie Maudeleyne, fro whom he had caste out seuene deuelis. Mark 16:10 And sche yede, and tolde to hem that hadden ben with hym, whiche weren weilynge and wepynge. Mark 16:11 And thei herynge that he lyuyde, and was seyn of hir, bileueden not.
to two going into the country:
Mark 16:12 But after these thingis whanne tweyne of hem wandriden, he was schewid in anothir liknesse to hem goynge in to a toun. Mark 16:13 And thei yeden, and telden to the othir, and nether thei bileueden to hem.
then to the Apostles,
Mark 16:14 But at the laste, whanne the enleuene disciplis saten at the mete, Jhesus apperide to hem, and repreuede the vnbileue of hem, and the hardnesse of herte, for thei bileueden not to hem, that hadden seyn that he was risun fro deeth.
whom he sendeth forth to preach the Gospel:
Mark 16:15 And he seide to hem, Go ye in to al the world, and preche the gospel to eche creature. Mark 16:16 Who that bileueth, and is baptisid, schal be saaf; but he that bileueth not, schal be dampned. Mark 16:17 And these tokenes schulen sue hem, that bileuen. In my name thei schulen caste out feendis; thei schulen speke with newe tungis; Mark 16:18 thei schulen do awei serpentis; and if thei drynke ony venym, it schal not noye hem. Thei schulen sette her hondis on sijk men, and thei schulen wexe hoole.
and ascendeth into heaven.
Mark 16:19 And the Lord Jhesu, aftir he hadde spokun to hem, was takun vp in to heuene, and he sittith on the riythalf of God. Mark 16:20 And thei yeden forth, and prechiden euery where, for the Lord wrouyte with hem, and confermyde the word with signes folewynge.
