John 11

CHAPTER 11

The Death of Lazarus

And there was a certain sick man, Lazarus, from Bethany, from out of the town of Mary and Martha her sister. [3was 1And 2Mary] the one anointing the Lord with perfumed liquid, and wiped clean his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick. [3sent 4then 1The 2sisters] to him, saying, O Lord, behold, whom you are fond of is sick. And hearing, Jesus said, This sickness is not to death, but for the glory of God, that [4should be glorified 1the 2son 3of God] through it. [3loved 1And 2Jesus] Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. Then as he heard that he is sick, then indeed he stayed in [2where 3he was 1the place] two days. Thereupon after this he says to the disciples, We should lead unto Judea again. [3say 4to him 1The 2disciples], Rabbi, now [3seek 4to stone you 1the 2Jews], and again you go there? Jesus answered, [2not 3twelve 1Are there] hours in the day? If anyone should walk in the day, he shall not stumble, for the light of this world he sees. 10 But if anyone should walk in the night, he stumbles, for the light is not in him. 11 These things he said. And after this he says to them, Lazarus our friend has went to sleep; but I shall go that I should wake him. 12 [2said 3then 1His disciples], O Lord, if he has went to sleep, he will be delivered. 13 [3had spoken 1But 2Jesus] concerning his death; but they thought that concerning the resting of sleep he spoke of. 14 Then therefore [2said 3to them 1Jesus] in an open manner, Lazarus died. 15 And I rejoice because of you, (that you should believe,) that I was not there; but we should lead on to him. 16 Then said Thomas, the one being called Didymus, to the fellow-disciples, We should lead on also ourselves that we should die with him. 17 Having come then, Jesus found him four days already having been in the sepulchre. 18 [3was 1And 2Bethany] near Jerusalem, about [2stadiums 1fifteen]. 19 And many from the Jews had come to the ones around Martha and Mary, so as to console them concerning their brother. 20  Then Martha, as she heard that Jesus comes, met him; but Mary [2in 3the 4house 1was seated]. 21 Then said Martha to Jesus, O Lord, if you were here, my brother would not have died. 22 But even now I know that as much as you should ask God, [2will give 3to you 1God]. 23 [2says 3to her 1Jesus], [2shall arise 1Your brother]. 24 [2says 3to him 1Martha], I know that he will rise up in the resurrection in the last day.

The Resurrection and the Life

25 [2said 3to her 1Jesus], I am the resurrection and the life. The one believing in me, even if he should die, he shall live. 26 And every one living and believing in me, in no way should die into the eon. Do you believe this? 27 She says to him, Yes, O Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the son of God, the one [2into 3the 4world 1coming]. 28 And these things having said, she went forth, and called Mary her sister in private, having said, The teacher is at hand, and calls you. 29 That one, as she heard, rises quickly and comes to him. 30 But not yet was Jesus come into the town, but was in the place where [2met 3him 1Martha]. 31 Then the Jews, the ones being with her in the house, and consoling her, seeing Mary, that quickly she rose up and went forth, they followed her, saying that, She goes unto the sepulchre that she should weep there. 32  Then Mary as she came where Jesus was, seeing him, fell unto his feet, saying to him, O Lord, if you might have been here, [3would not have 4died 1my 2brother]. 33 Jesus then as he beheld her weeping, and the [2coming with 3her 1Jews] weeping, was deeply moved in the spirit, and troubled himself. 34 And he said, Where have you placed him? They say to him, O Lord, come and see! 35 Jesus burst into tears. 36 Then said the Jews, See how he was fond of him! 37 But some of them said, [2not 3able 1Was this one], opening the eyes of the blind, to execute that also this one should not have died?

Lazarus Raised from the Dead

38 Jesus then again deeply moved in himself comes unto the sepulchre. And it was a cave, and a stone was pressed against it. 39 Jesus says, Lift the stone! [6says 7to him 2the 3sister 4of the one 5having died 1Martha], O Lord, already he reeks, [3the fourth day 1for 2it is]. 40 [2says 3to her 1Jesus], Did I not say to you, that if you should believe, you shall see the glory of God? 41 Then they lifted away the stone where [3was 1the one 2having died] situated. And Jesus lifted his eyes upward, and said, O father, I give thanks to you that you heard me. 42 And I know that at all times you hear me; but on account of the multitude standing around I spoke, that they should believe that you sent me. 43 And these things having said, [2voice 1with a great] he cried out, Lazarus, come outside. 44 And came forth the one having died, being tied of the feet, and the hands swathed, and his face with a scarf tied about. [2says 3to them 1Jesus], Untie him, and let him go! 45 Then many of the Jews, the ones having come with Mary, and seeing what Jesus did, believed in him. 46 But some of them went forth to the Pharisees, and told to them what Jesus did. 47 [7gathered together 1Then 2the 3chief priests 4and 5the 6Pharisees] the sanhedrin, and said, What do we do, for this man [2many 3signs 1does]? 48 If we let him do thus, all shall believe in him; and [3shall come 1the 2Romans] and take us and the place and the nation. 49 [3one 1And 2a certain] of them, Caiaphas, being chief priest that year, said to them, You do not know anything; 50 nor reason that it be advantageous to us that one man should die for the people, and [4not 1the entire 2nation 3should] perish. 51 But this [3of 4himself 2not 1he said]. But being chief priest that year he prophesied that Jesus was about to die for the nation; 52 and not for the nation only, but that also the children of God, the ones being dispersed, should be brought together into one. 53 From that [2then 1day] they advised that they should kill him. 54 Jesus then no longer in an open manner walked among the Jews, but went forth from there into the place near the wilderness, into [2being called Ephraim 1a city], and there he spent time with his disciples. 55 And it was near the passover of the Jews; and [2ascended 1many] unto Jerusalem from out of the region before the passover, that they should purify themselves. 56 Then they were seeking Jesus, and said with one another in the temple standing, What do you think, that in no way should he come unto the holiday feast? 57 [8gave 1And 2even 3the 4chief priests 5and 6the 7Pharisees] a command, that if any should know where he is, he should indicate it, so that they should lay hold of him.
