EARTH did quake, and the Rocks rent, and the GRAVES were opened, and many BODIES of SAINTS which flept, AROSE, and came out of the Graves after his Refurrection, and went into the holy City, and APPEARED unto many. [L.] When the Centurion, [Mr.] which stood over against him, [L.] faw what was done, [Mr.] that he fo cried out, and gave up the Ghoft, [L.] he GLORIFIED God, faying, Certainly this was a RIGHTEOUS Man, [Mr.] Truly this Man was the SON OF GOD.

CHRIST'S Burial.

[7]AND after this, [Mr.] when now the Even was


come, (because it was the Preparation, that is, the Day before the Sabbath) [M.] there came a rich Man, [L] of Arimathea, a City of the Jews, [M.] named Jofeph, Mr.] an honourable Counfellor, [L.] and he was a good Man, and a juft. The fame had not confented to the council and deed of them, [M] who alfo himself was Fefus Difciple, [3] but fecretly, for fear of the Jews; [L] who alfo himself waited for the Kingdom of God. This Man [Mr.] went in boldly unto Pilate, and [M.] coming to Filate, begged the BODY of Fejus: for [3.] he befought Pilate, that he might take away the Body of Fefus. [Mr.] And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead and calling unto him the Centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead. And when he knew it of the Centurion, [7] Pilate gave him leave, and [M.] commanded the Body to be delivered, and [Mr.] he gave the Body to Jofeph: [F] He came therefore and took the Body of Fejus. [Mr.] And he bought fine Linen, and took him down. [M] And when Jofeph had taken the Body, he wrapped it in a clean linen Cloth: [7] And there came alfo Nicodemus, (which at the first came to Jefus by Night) and brought a Mixture of Myrrh and Aloes, about an hundred Pound weight. Then took they the BODY of Jefus, and wound it in linen Cloaths, with the Spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury. Now in the Place where he was crucified, there was a Garden, and in the Garden a new Sepulchre, wherein was never Man yet laid. [M.] And he laid it in his own new Tomb, [L.] that was hewed in Stone, [M.] which, he had hewn out of the Rock, [L.] wherein never man before was laid; [M] and he rolled a great Stone to the Door of the Sepulchre, and departed. [Z] And that Day

was the Preparation, and the Sabbath drew on. [7] There laid they Jefus therefore, because of the Jews Preparation Day, for the Sepulchre was nigh at hand. [M.] And there was Mary Magdalen, and the other Mary, [Mr.] the Mother of Jofes. [L.] And the Women also which came with him from Galilee, followed after, [M] fitting over against the Sepulchre, [Mr.] beheld where he was laid, [.] and beheld the Sepulchre, and how his Body was laid; and they returned, and prepared Spices, and refted the Sabbath Day, according to the Commandment. [M] Now the next Day that followed the Day of the Preparation, the CHIEF PRIESTS and Pharisees came together unto Pilate, faying, Sir, We remember that that Deceiver faid, while he was yet alive, after three Days I will rife again: command therefore that the Sepulchre be made fure until the third Day, left his Difciples come by Night, and fteal him away, and fay unto the People, he is rifen from the Dead: fo the laft Error fhall be worfe than the first. Pilate faid unto them, Ye have a Watch; go your way, make it as fure as you can, So they went and made the Sepulchre fure, fealing the Stone, and fetting a Watch.
