John 12


Mary Anoints the Feet of Jesus

Then Jesus, [3before 1six 2days] the passover, came into Bethany, where Lazarus was, the one having died, whom he raised from the dead. They made then for him a supper there, and Martha served; and Lazarus was one of the ones reclining with him. Then Mary, having taken a liter of [2perfumed 3spikenard 4liquid 1valuable], anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped clean with her hair his feet; and the house was filled of the scent of the perfumed liquid. Says then one of his disciples, Judas son of Simon Iscariot, the one being about to deliver him up. Why was this perfumed liquid not sold for three hundred denarii, and given to the poor? But he said this, not that concerning the poor he was caring, but because he was a thief, and [2the 3money container 1he had], and the things being thrown in it he bore. [2then said 1Jesus], Leave her alone! [3for 4the 5day 6of my entombing 1she has kept 2it]; [4the 5poor 1for 2at all times 3you have] with you, but me not at all times do you have. [7knew 1Then 3multitude 2a great 4of 5the 6Jews] that he is there; and they came not on account of Jesus only, but that also they should see Lazarus whom he raised from the dead. 10 [4consulted 1And 2the 3chief priests] that also [2Lazarus 1they should kill], 11 for many [4because of 5him 3drew away 1of the 2Jews], and believed on Jesus.

Jesus Enters into Jerusalem

12 The next day [2multitude 1a great] having come unto the holiday feast, having heard that Jesus comes unto Jerusalem, 13 took palm fronds of the palm trees, and came forth to meet him, and were crying out, Hosanna, being blessed is the one coming in the name of the  lord, the king of Israel. 14 [3having found 1And 2Jesus] a young donkey, sat upon it, as it is written, 15 Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your king comes, sitting upon the foal of a donkey. 16 But these things [2did not 3know 1his disciples] at first; but when Jesus was glorified then they remembered that these things were [2about 3him 1written], and these things they did to him. 17 [7testified 1Then 2the 3multitude 4being 5with 6him], when he called Lazarus from out of the sepulchre, and raised him from the dead. 18 On account of this also [3met 4him 1the 2multitude], for it heard this [2for him to have done 1sign]. 19 Then the Pharisees said to themselves, Do you contemplate that you benefit nothing? See! the world [2after 3him 1went forth].

Jesus Foretells of His own Death

20 And there were certain Greeks from the ones ascending, that they should do obeisance during the holiday feast. 21 These then came forward to Philip, to the one from Bethsaida of Galilee, and they asked him, saying, O master, we want to see Jesus. 22 Philip comes and speaks to Andrew; and again Andrew and Philip speak to Jesus. 23  But Jesus answered to them saying, [3has come 1The 2hour] that [4should be glorified 1the 2son 3of man]. 24 Amen, amen, I say to you, Unless the kernel of grain falling into the earth should die, it alone remains; and if it should die, [2much 3fruit 1it bears]. 25 The one being fond of his life, shall lose it; and the one detesting his life in this world [3unto 5life 4eternal 1shall keep 2it]. 26 If [3to me 2should serve 1anyone], [2me 1follow]! And where I am, there also [3servant 2my 1will be]. And if anyone should serve to me, [3shall esteem 4him 1the 2father]. 27 Now my soul has been disturbed, and what should I say? O father, deliver me from this hour! But on account of this I came unto this hour. 28 O father, glorify your name! Then came a voice from out of the heaven, Even I glorified, and again I will glorify. 29 Then the multitude standing and hearing, said, Thunder has taken place; others said, An angel has spoken to him. 30 Jesus answered and said, Not on account of me has this voice taken place, but on account of you. 31 Now is judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world shall be cast outside; 32 and I, if I be raised up high from the earth, I will draw all to myself. 33 And this he said, signifying what death he was about to die. 34 [3answered 4him 1The 2multitude], We hear from the law that the Christ abides into the eon; and how say you that it is necessary for [4to be raised up high 1the 2son 3of man]? Who is this Son of man? 35 Then said Jesus to them, Still a little time the light [2with 3you 1is]. Walk while [2the 3light 1you have], that [3not 1darkness 5you 2should 4overtake]. And the one walking in the darkness knows not where he goes. 36 While [2the 3light 1you have], trust in the light! that [2sons 3of light 1you should become]. These things Jesus spoke, and going forth, was hid from them. 37 [4such great 1But 2his 5signs 3doing] in front of them, they did not believe in him; 38 that the word of Isaiah the prophet should be fulfilled, which he said, O Lord, who believed our report? and the arm of the Lord, to whom was it uncovered? 39 On account of this they were not able to believe, for again Isaiah said, 40 He has blinded their eyes, and calloused their heart; that they should not see with the eyes, and comprehend with the heart, and be turned, and I should heal them. 41 These things Isaiah said, when he beheld his glory, and spoke concerning him. 42 Even however also [2from 3the 4rulers 1many] believed in him; but because of the Pharisees they did not acknowledge it, that they should not [2removed from the synagogue 1be]. 43 For they loved the glory of men rather than the glory of God. 44 And Jesus cried out and said, The one believing in me, believes not in me, but in the one having sent me; 45 and the one contemplating me, contemplates the one having sent me. 46 I [2a light 3unto 4the 5world 1have come], that every one believing in me, [2in 3the 4darkness 1should not abide]. 47 And if anyone should hear of my sayings, and should not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come that I judge the world, but that I should deliver the world. 48 The one disregarding me, and receives not my words, has the thing judging him -- the word which I have spoken, that shall judge him in the last day. 49 For I of myself spoke not; but the [2having sent 3me 1father], he [3to me 2command 1gave] what I should say, and what I should speak. 50 And I know that his command [2life 3eternal 1is]. What then I speak, as [3has said 4to me 1the 2father], so I speak.
