regarding "was taken up" and "sat down"
this verse is taken exactly from the Bible, could I change it?
The gospel of Mark mention that Jesus was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God .
It has been changed numerous times. Here is Mark 16:19:
From the King James Version
So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
From the Common English Bible
After the Lord Jesus spoke to them, he was lifted up into heaven and sat down on the right side of God.
From the Amplified Bible
So then the Lord Jesus, after He had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and He sat down at the right hand of God.
From the Complete Jewish Bible
So then, after he had spoken to them, the Lord Yeshua was taken up into heaven and sat at the right hand of God.
From the Easy to Read Version
After the Lord Jesus said these things to his followers, he was carried up into heaven. There, Jesus sat at the right side of God.
There are about 20 more English language versions of the Bible. They all say the same thing, but in a slightly different way.
