John 11:1-16

The Death of Lazarus

1Now a certain man was ill, Lazarus of Bethany, the village of aMary and her sister Martha. 2 bIt was Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was ill. 3So the sisters sent to him, saying, “Lord che whom you love is ill.” 4But when Jesus heard it he said, dThis illness does not lead to death. It is for ethe glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it.”

5Now fJesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. 6So, when he heard that Lazarus
Greek he; also verse 17
was ill hhe stayed two days longer in the place where he was.
7Then after this he said to the disciples, i“Let us go to Judea again.” 8The disciples said to him, jRabbi, kthe Jews were just now seeking to stone you, and are you going there again?” 9Jesus answered, l“Are there not twelve hours in the day? mIf anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. 10But nif anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not oin him.” 11After saying these things, he said to them, Our friend Lazarus phas fallen asleep, but I go to awaken him.” 12The disciples said to him, “Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will recover.” 13Now Jesus had spoken of his death, but they thought that he meant taking rest in sleep. 14Then Jesus told them plainly, Lazarus has died, 15and for your sake I am glad that I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.” 16 qSo Thomas, called the Twin
Greek Didymus
said to his fellow disciples, “Let us also go sthat we may die with him.”
