19On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you!"19On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.”19So when it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and when the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, "Peace be with you."19Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.19In the evening of that first day of the week, the disciples were gathered together with the doors locked because of their fear of the Jews. Then Jesus came, stood among them, and said to them, "Peace to you!"
20After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.20When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.20And when He had said this, He showed them both His hands and His side. The disciples then rejoiced when they saw the Lord.20And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.20Having said this, He showed them His hands and His side. So the disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
21Again Jesus said, "Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you."21Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.”21So Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you."21Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.21Jesus said to them again, "Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you."
22And with that he breathed on them and said, "Receive the Holy Spirit.22And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.22And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit.22And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:22After saying this, He breathed on them and said, "Receive the Holy Spirit.
23If you forgive anyone's sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven."23If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.”23"If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they have been retained."23Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.23If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained."

Jesus Appears to Thomas

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
24Now Thomas (also known as Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came.24Now Thomas, one of the twelve, called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus came.24But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.24But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.24But one of the Twelve, Thomas (called "Twin"), was not with them when Jesus came.
25So the other disciples told him, "We have seen the Lord!" But he said to them, "Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe."25So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe.”25So the other disciples were saying to him, "We have seen the Lord!" But he said to them, "Unless I see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe."25The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.25So the other disciples kept telling him, "We have seen the Lord!" But he said to them, "If I don't see the mark of the nails in His hands, put my finger into the mark of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will never believe!"
26A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you!"26Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.”26After eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst and said, "Peace be with you."26And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.26After eight days His disciples were indoors again, and Thomas was with them. Even though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them. He said, "Peace to you!"
27Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe."27Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.”27Then He said to Thomas, "Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing."27Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.27Then He said to Thomas, "Put your finger here and observe My hands. Reach out your hand and put it into My side. Don't be an unbeliever, but a believer."
NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
28Thomas said to him, "My Lord and my God!"28Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!”28Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!"28And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.28Thomas responded to Him, "My Lord and my God!"
29Then Jesus told him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."29Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”29Jesus said to him, "Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed."29Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.29Jesus said, "Because you have seen Me, you have believed. Those who believe without seeing are blessed."
