19 On 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.” 20 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” 22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.”
19 ആഴ്ചവട്ടത്തിന്റെ ഒന്നാം നാൾ ആയ ആ ദിവസം, നേരംവൈകിയപ്പോൾ ശിഷ്യന്മാർ ഇരുന്ന സ്ഥലത്തു യെഹൂദന്മാരെ പേടിച്ചു വാതിൽ അടെച്ചിരിക്കെ യേശു വന്നു നടുവിൽ നിന്നുകൊണ്ടു: നിങ്ങൾക്കു സമാധാനം എന്നു അവരോടു പറഞ്ഞു. 20 ഇതു പറഞ്ഞിട്ടു അവൻ കയ്യും വിലാപ്പുറവും അവരെ കാണിച്ചു; കർത്താവിനെ കണ്ടിട്ടു ശിഷ്യന്മാർ സന്തോഷിച്ചു. 21 യേശു പിന്നെയും അവരോടു: നിങ്ങൾക്കു സമാധാനം; പിതാവു എന്നെ അയച്ചതുപോലെ ഞാനും നിങ്ങളെ അയക്കുന്നു എന്നു പറഞ്ഞു. 22 ഇങ്ങനെ പറഞ്ഞശേഷം അവൻ അവരുടെമേൽ ഊതി അവരോടു: പരിശുദ്ധാത്മാവിനെ കൈക്കൊൾവിൻ. 23 ആരുടെ പാപങ്ങൾ നിങ്ങൾ മോചിക്കുന്നവോ അവർക്കു മോചിക്കപ്പെട്ടിരിക്കുന്നു; ആരുടെ പാപങ്ങൾ നിർത്തുന്നുവോ അവർക്കു നിർത്തിയിരിക്കുന്നു എന്നു പറഞ്ഞു.
