11:1 But a man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, of the village of Mary and her sister Martha.
2 And it was Mary that anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.
3 The sisters therefore sent to him, saying: Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.
4 But Jesus hearing it, said: This sickness is not to death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.
5 Now, Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.
6 When therefore he had heard that he was sick, then indeed he abode two days in the place where he was:
7 then after this he says to the disciples: Let us go into Judea again.
8 The disciples say to him: Rabbi, the Jews just now sought to stone thee, arid goest thou thither again?
9 Jesus answered: Are there not twelve hours of the day? If any one walk in the day, he stumbles not, because he sees the light of the world:
10 if any one walk in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.
11 These things said he, and after this he says to them: Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I go that I may awake him.
12 Then the disciples said to him: Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he shall be saved.
13 Jesus, however, had spoken of his death; but they supposed that he spoke of the rest of sleep.
14 Therefore Jesus then said to them plainly: Lazarus is dead;
15 and I rejoice for your sakes, in order that you may believe, that I was not there; but let us go to him.
16 Thomas, who is called Didymus, then said to his fellow-disciples: Let I us also go, that we may die with him.
17 Jesus came therefore and found that he had been four days in the tomb.
18 But Bethany was near Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off.
19 And many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary and their friends, to comfort them concerning their brother.
20 Martha therefore, when she heard that Jesus was coming, met him; but Mary sat in the house.
21 Martha therefore said to Jesus: Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother would not have died.
22 And now I know that whatever things thou shalt ask of God, God will give thee.
23 Jesus says to her: Thy brother shall rise.
24 Martha says to him: I know that he will rise in the resurrection, in the last day.
25 Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the life; he that believes on me, though he were dead, he shall live,
26 and whoever lives and believes on me shall never die: believest thou this?
27 She says to him: Yes, Lord: I have believed that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, he that comes into the world.
28 And after saying this she went away and called Mary her sister secretly, saying: The Teacher is present, and calls for thee.
29 When she heard, she rose quickly and came to him;
30 but Jesus had not yet come into the village, but was in the place where Martha had met him.
31 Therefore the Jews that were with her in the house, and were comforting her, seeing Mary, that she rose up quickly and went out, followed her, supposing that she was going to the tomb, that she might weep there.
32 Mary therefore, when she came where Jesus was, seeing him, fell at his feet, saying to him: Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother would not have died.
33 Jesus therefore, when he saw her weeping and the Jews that came with her weeping, was greatly moved in spirit, and was troubled,
34 and said: Where have you laid him? They say to him: Lord, come and see.
35 Jesus wept.
36 Therefore said the Jews: See how he loved him.
37 But some of them said: Could not this man, that opened the eyes of the blind man, have caused that even this man should not die?
38 Jesus therefore, again greatly moved within himself, comes to the tomb; but it was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
39 Jesus says: Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that had died, says to him: Lord, the smell is now offensive; for he has been dead four days.
40 Jesus says to her: Did I not tell thee that if thou wouldst believe thou shouldst see the glory of God?
41 They therefore took away the stone; but Jesus lifted up his eyes and said: Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.
42 But I knew that thou always hearest me; but yet, on account of the multitude that stands around, I said it, that they may believe that thou didst send me.
43 And having said these things, he cried with a loud voice: Lazarus, come forth.
44 And he that had been dead came forth, bound hands and feet with swathing bands; and his face was bound around with a handkerchief. Jesus says to them: Loose him, and let him go.
45 Many therefore of the Jews, that had come to Mary and had seen what he did, believed on him;
46 but some of them went away to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done.
47 Therefore the chief priests and the Pharisees brought together the Sanhedrim, and said: What do we, for this man does many signs?
48 If we let him alone thus, all will believe on him; and the Romans will come and take away both our place and nation.
49 But a certain one of them, Caiaphas, being chief priest that year, said to them: You know nothing,
50 neither do you consider that it is profitable for us that one man die for the people and not that the whole nation perish.
51 But this he spoke not of himself, 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 he might gather into one the children of God also, that were scattered abroad.
53 From that day therefore they took counsel to kill him.
54 Jesus then no longer walked openly among the Jews; but went away thence into the country near the wilderness, to a city called Ephraim; and there he abode with his disciples.
55 But the passover of the Jews was near, and many went up from the country to Jerusalem before the passover, that they might purify themselves.
56 They therefore sought Jesus and said among themselves while standing in the temple: What think you, that he will not come to the feast?
57 But the chief priests and the Pharisees had given commandments that, if any knew where he was, he should make it known, in order that they might take him.
