Matthew 27:62-66 – Tomb securely guarded
62 The next day, which was after the Preparation,+the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered together before Pilate, 63 saying: “Sir, we recall what that impostor said while he was still alive, ‘After three days I am to be raised up.’+ 64 Therefore, command that the grave be made secure until the third day, so that his disciples may not come and steal him+ and say to the people, ‘He was raised up from the dead!’ Then this last deception will be worse than the first.” 65 Pilate said to them: “You may have a guard. Go make it as secure as you know how.” 66 So they went and made the grave secure by sealing the stone and posting a guard.
2 And look! a great earthquake had taken place, for Jehovah’s* angel had descended from heaven and had come and rolled away the stone, and he was sitting on it.+ 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing was as white as snow.+ 4 Yes, out of their fear of him, the watchmen trembled and became as dead men.
