11 Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, of the village of Mary and Martha her sister.
2 And Mary was she who anointed the Lord with perfume and wiped his feet with her hair,—whose brother Lazarus was sick.
3 The sisters therefore sent out unto him saying—Lord, see! he whom thou tenderly lovest is sick.
4 But Jesus hearing said—This sickness is not unto death, But for the glory of God,—That the Son of God may be glorified thereby.
5 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.
6 When therefore he heard that he was sick then indeed he abode in the place where he was two days.
7 Then after this he saith unto the disciples—Let us be leading on into Judaea again.
8 The disciples say unto him—Rabbi! just now were the Jews seeking to stone thee—And again goest thou thither?
9 Jesus answered—Are there not twelve hours in the day? If one walk in the day he doth not stumble, Because the light of this world he seeth;
10 But if one walk in the night he stumbleth, Because the light is not in him.
11 These things he said, and after this he saith unto them—Lazarus our dear friend hath fallen asleep; But I am going that I may awake him.
12 The disciples therefore said unto him—Lord! if he have fallen asleep he will recover.
13 But Jesus had spoken concerning his death; whereas they supposed that concerning the taking of rest in sleep he had been speaking.
14 Jesus therefore then said unto them plainly—Lazarus died;
15 and I rejoice for your sake,—that ye may believe,—that I was not there; But let us be going unto him.
16 Thomas therefore the one called Didymus said unto his fellow-disciples—Let us also be going, that we may die with him.
17 Jesus therefore coming, found that four days already had he been in the tomb.
18 Now Bethany was near Jerusalem about fifteen furlongs off;
19 and many from among the Jews had come unto Martha and Mary, that they might console them concerning their brother.
20 Martha therefore when she heard that Jesus was coming went to meet him; but Mary in the house remained sitting.
21 Martha therefore said unto Jesus—Lord! if thou hadst been here my brother had not died;
22 And now I know that whatsoever thou shalt ask of God God will give unto thee.
23 Jesus saith unto her—Thy brother shall rise.
24 Martha saith unto him—I know that he shall rise in the resurrection, in the last day.
25 Jesus said unto her—I am the resurrection and the life: He that believeth on me Even though he die shall live again!
26 And no one who liveth again and believeth on me Shall in anywise die unto times age-abiding. Believest thou this?
27 She saith unto him—Yea, Lord! I have believed That thou art the Christ, the Son of God,—He who into the world should come.
28 And this saying she went away and called Mary her sister, secretly saying—The teacher is present, and calleth thee.
29 And she when she heard was roused up quickly, and was coming unto him.
30 Not yet however had Jesus come into the village, but was still in the place where Martha met him.
31 The Jews therefore who were with her in the house and consoling her seeing Mary that quickly she arose and went out followed her, supposing that she was withdrawing unto the tomb that she might weep there.
32 Mary therefore when she came where Jesus was seeing him fell at his feet saying unto him—Lord! if thou hadst been here my brother had not died.
33 Jesus therefore when he saw her weeping and the Jews who came with her weeping was indignant in the spirit and troubled himself,
34 and said—Where have ye laid him? They say unto him—Lord! come and see.
35 Jesus wept.
36 The Jews therefore were saying—See! how tenderly he loved him!
37 But some from among them said—Could not this man who opened the eyes of the blind have caused that this one also should not have died?
38 Jesus therefore again being indignant within himself cometh unto the tomb. Now it was a cave, and a stone was lying thereon.
39 Jesus saith—Take ye away the stone! Martha, the sister of the deceased, saith unto him—Lord! by this time he stinketh, for it is four days.
40 Jesus saith unto her—Said I not unto thee That if thou wouldst believe thou shouldst see the glory of God?
41 So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up his eyes on high and said—Father! I thank thee, thou didst hear me:
42 I indeed knew that always unto me thou dost hearken; But for the sake of the multitude standing around I spake,—That they might believe that thou didst send me forth.
43 And these things having said, with a loud voice he cried out—Lazarus! come forth!
44 He that was dead came forth, bound feet and hands with bandages, and his face with a napkin was bound about. Jesus saith unto them—Loose him and let him go.
45 Many therefore from among the Jews who had come unto Mary and gazed on what he did believed on him;
46 but certain from among them went away unto the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done.
47 The High-priests and Pharisees therefore brought together a high-council, and were saying—What are we to do in that this man doeth many signs?
48 If we let him alone thus all will believe on him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and nation.
49 But a certain one from among them, Caiaphas being High-priest for that year said unto them—Ye know nothing at all;
50 nor do ye take into account that it is profitable for you that one man should die for the people, and not the whole nation perish.
51 This however from himself he spake not, but being High-priest for that year he prophesied that Jesus was about to die for the nation;
52 and not for the nation only but that the scattered children of God also he might gather together into one.
53 From that day therefore they took counsel that they might put him to death.
54 Jesus therefore no longer openly was walking among the Jews, but departed thence into the country near the desert, unto a city called Ephraim; and there abode with his disciples.
55 Now the passover of the Jews was at hand, and many went up unto Jerusalem out of the country before the passover, that they might purify themselves.
56 They were therefore seeking Jesus and were saying one to another in the temple standing—How seemeth it unto you? that he will in nowise come unto the feast?
57 Now the High-priests and the Pharisees had given commands, that if anyone came to know where he was he should inform [them], so that they might seize him.
