Gospel reading
John 20: 1-9

Ande in aan day of the wolk Marie Magdalene com airlie to the graue, quhen it was yit mirk. And scho saw the staan mouet away fra the graue. Tharfor scho ran, and com to Symon Petir, and to ane vther discipile, quham Jesus luvit, and sais to thame, "Thai haue takin the Lord fra the graue, and we wate nocht quhare thai haue laid him."

Tharfore Petir went out, and that ilk vthir discipile, and thai com to the graue. And thai twa ran togiddir, and the ilk vthir discipile ran before Petir, and com first to the graue. And quhen he lowtit, he saw the schetis liand, neuirtheles he entrit nocht. Tharfor Symon Petir com followand him, and he entrit into the graue, and he saw the schetis laid, and the sudarie that was on his hede, nocht laid with the schetis, bot be itself wympilit into aan place. Tharfore than the ilk discipile that com first to the graue, entrit, and saw, and beleuet. For thai knew nocht yit, the scripture, that it behuvit him to ryse agane fira deid.
