JN 11:1  Now there was a certain man sick, named Lazarus, of Bethania, of the town of Mary and Martha her sister.

JN 11:2  (And Mary was she that anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair: whose brother Lazarus was sick.)

JN 11:3  His sisters therefore sent to him, saying: Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.

JN 11:4  And Jesus hearing it, said to them: This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God: that the Son of God may be glorified by it.

JN 11:5  Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister Mary, and Lazarus.

JN 11:6  When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he still remained in the same place two days.

JN 11:7  Then after that, he said to his disciples: Let us go into Judea again.

JN 11:8  The disciples say to him: Rabbi, the Jews but now sought to stone thee: and goest thou thither again?

JN 11:9  Jesus answered: Are there not twelve hours of the day? If a man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world:

JN 11:10  But if he walk in the night, he stumbleth, because the light is not in him.

JN 11:11  These things he said; and after that he said to them: Lazarus our friend sleepeth; but I go that I may awake him out of sleep.

JN 11:12  His disciples therefore said: Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.

JN 11:13  But Jesus spoke of his death; and they thought that he spoke of the repose of sleep.

JN 11:14  Then therefore Jesus said to them plainly: Lazarus is dead.

JN 11:15  And I am glad, for your sakes, that I was not there, that you may believe: but let us go to him.

JN 11:16  Thomas therefore, who is called Didymus, said to his fellow disciples: Let us also go, that we may die with him.

JN 11:17  Jesus therefore came, and found that he had been four days already in the grave.

JN 11:18  (Now Bethania was near Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off.)

JN 11:19  And many of the Jews were come to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.

JN 11:20  Martha therefore, as soon as she heard that Jesus had come, went to meet him: but Mary sat at home.

JN 11:21  Martha therefore said to Jesus: Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

JN 11:22  But now also I know that whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

JN 11:23  Jesus saith to her: Thy brother shall rise again.

JN 11:24  Martha saith to him: I know that he shall rise again, in the resurrection at the last day.

JN 11:25  Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, although he be dead, shall live:

JN 11:26  And every one that liveth, and believeth in me, shall not die for ever. Believest thou this?

JN 11:27  She saith to him: Yea, Lord, I have believed that thou art Christ the Son of the living God, who art come into this world.

JN 11:28  And when she had said these things, she went, and called her sister Mary secretly, saying: The master is come, and calleth for thee.

JN 11:29  She, as soon as she heard this, riseth quickly, and cometh to him.

JN 11:30  For Jesus was not yet come into the town: but he was still in that place where Martha had met him.

JN 11:31  The Jews therefore, who were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary that she rose up speedily and went out, followed her, saying: She goeth to the grave to weep there.

JN 11:32  When Mary therefore was come where Jesus was, seeing him, she fell down at his feet, and saith to him: Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

JN 11:33  Jesus, therefore, when he saw her weeping, and the Jews that were come with her, weeping, groaned in the spirit, and troubled himself,

JN 11:34  And said: Where have you laid him? They say to him: Lord, come and see.

JN 11:35  And Jesus wept.

JN 11:36  The Jews therefore said: Behold how he loved him.

JN 11:37  But some of them said: Could not he that opened the eyes of the man born blind, have caused that this man should not die?

JN 11:38  Jesus therefore again groaning in himself, cometh to the sepulchre. Now it was a cave; and a stone was laid over it.

JN 11:39  Jesus saith: Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith to him: Lord, by this time he stinketh, for he is now of four days.

JN 11:40  Jesus saith to her: Did not I say to thee, that if thou believe, thou shalt see the glory of God?

JN 11:41  They took therefore the stone away. And Jesus lifting up his eyes said: Father, I give thee thanks that thou hast heard me.

JN 11:42  And I knew that thou hearest me always; but because of the people who stand about have I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

JN 11:43  When he had said these things, he cried with a loud voice: Lazarus, come forth.

JN 11:44  And presently he that had been dead came forth, bound feet and hands with winding bands; and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus said to them: Loose him, and let him go.

JN 11:45  Many therefore of the Jews, who were come to Mary and Martha, and had seen the things that Jesus did, believed in him.

JN 11:46  But some of them went to the Pharisees, and told them the things that Jesus had done.

JN 11:47  The chief priests therefore, and the Pharisees, gathered a council, and said: What do we, for this man doth many miracles?

JN 11:48  If we let him alone so, all will believe in him; and the Romans will come, and take away our place and nation.

JN 11:49  But one of them, named Caiphas, being the high priest that year, said to them: You know nothing.

JN 11:50  Neither do you consider that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

JN 11:51  And this he spoke not of himself: but being the high priest of that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for the nation.

JN 11:52  And not only for the nation, but to gather together in one the children of God, that were dispersed.

JN 11:53  From that day therefore they devised to put him to death.

JN 11:54  Wherefore Jesus walked no more openly among the Jews; but he went into a country near the desert, unto a city that is called Ephrem, and there he abode with his disciples.

JN 11:55  And the pasch of the Jews was at hand; and many from the country went up to Jerusalem, before the pasch to purify themselves.

JN 11:56  They sought therefore for Jesus; and they discoursed one with another, standing in the temple: What think you that he is not come to the festival day? And the chief priests and Pharisees had given a commandment, that if any man knew where he was, he should tell, that they might apprehend him.
