John 11


11:1 Now a certain [man] was sick, [named] Lazarus, of Bethany,
 the town of Mary and her sister Martha.
11:2 (It was [that] Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment,
 and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was
 sick.)
11:3 Therefore his sisters sent to him, saying, Lord, behold, he
 whom thou lovest is sick.
11:4 When Jesus heard [that], he said, This sickness is not to
 death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be
 glorified by it.
11:5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.
11:6 When therefore he had heard that he was sick, he abode two
 days still in the same place where he was.
11:7 Then after that he saith to [his] disciples, Let us ho into
 Judea again.
11:8 [His] disciples say to him, Master, the Jews of late sought
 to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?
11:9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If
 any man walketh in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth
 the light of this world.
11:10 But if a man walketh in the night, he stumbleth, because
 there is no light in him.
11:11 These things he said: and after that he saith to them, Our
 friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go that I may awake him out of
 sleep.
11:12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleepeth he will do
 well.
11:13 Now Jesus spoke of his death: but they thought that he had
 spoken of taking rest in sleep.
11:14 Then said Jesus to them plainly, Lazarus is dead.
11:15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the
 intent ye may believe; nevertheless, let us go to him.
11:16 Then said Thomas, who is called Didymus, to his
 fellow-disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.
11:17 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the
 grave four days already.
11:18 (Now Bethany was nigh to Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs
 distant.)
11:19 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort
 them concerning their brother.
11:20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming,
 went and met him: but Mary sat in the house.
11:21 Then said Martha to Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here,
 my brother had not died.
11:22 But I know that even now, whatever thou wilt ask of God,
 God will give [it] thee.
11:23 Jesus saith to her, Thy brother shall rise again.
11:24 Martha saith to him, I know that he will rise again in the
 resurrection at the last day.
11:25 Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he
 that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
11:26 And whoever liveth, and believeth in me, shall never die.
 Believest thou this?
11:27 She saith to him, Yes, Lord, I believe that thou art the
 Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world.
11:28 And when she had so said, she went and called Mary her
 sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for
 thee.
11:29 As soon as she heard [that], she arose quickly, and came
 to him.
11:30 Now Jesus had not yet come into the town, but was in that
 place where Martha met him.
11:31 The Jews then who were with her in the house, and
 comforted her, when they saw Mary that she rose hastily, and
 went out, followed her, saying, She goeth to the grave to weep
 there.
11:32 Then when Mary had come where Jesus was, and saw him, she
 fell down at his feet, saying to him, Lord, if thou hadst been
 here, my brother had not died.
11:33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also
 weeping who came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was
 troubled;
11:34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They say to him, Lord,
 come and see.
11:35 Jesus wept.
11:36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!
11:37 And some of them said, Could not this man, who opened the
 eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not
 have died?
11:38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself, cometh to the
 grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
11:39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of
 him that was dead, saith to him, Lord, by this time his body is
 offensive: for he hath been [dead] four days.
11:40 Jesus saith to her, Said I not to thee, that if thou
 wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
11:41 Then they took away the stone [from the place] where the
 dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up [his] eyes, and said,
 Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me:
11:42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the
 people who stand by, I said [it], that they may believe that
 thou hast sent me.
11:43 And when he had thus spoken, he cried with a loud voice,
 Lazarus, come forth.
11:44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with
 grave-clothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin.
 Jesus saith to them, Loose him, and let him go.
11:45 Then many of the Jews who came to Mary, and had seen the
 things which Jesus did, believed on him.
11:46 But some of them went to the Pharisees, and told them what
 things Jesus had done.
11:47 Then the chief priests and the Pharisees convened a
 council, and said, What do we? for this man performeth many
 miracles.
11:48 If we let him thus alone, all [men] will believe on him:
 and the Romans will come, and take away both our place and
 nation.
11:49 And one of them, [named] Caiaphas, being the high priest
 that same year, said to them, Ye know nothing at all,
11:50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man
 should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish
 not.
11:51 And this he spoke not of himself: but being high priest
 that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;
11:52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should
 assemble in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.
11:53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together to put
 him to death.
11:54 Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but
 went thence to a country near to the wilderness, into a city
 called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.
11:55 And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out
 of the country to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify
 themselves.
11:56 Then they sought for Jesus, and spoke among themselves, as
 they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come
 to the feast?
11:57 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a
 commandment, that, if any man knew where he was, he should show
 [it], that they might take him.
