12:1 Jesus therefore, six days before the passover, came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus raised from the dead.
2 They therefore made him a supper there, and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those that reclined at table with him.
3 Then Mary took a pound of the ointment of pure nard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the perfume of the ointment.
4 But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples, he that was about to deliver him up, says:
5 Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denarii, and given to the poor?
6 But this he said, not because he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and having the bag he carried what was thrown in.
7 Jesus therefore said: Let her alone; she bought it that she might keep it to the day of my burial.
8 For the poor you have always with you, but me you have not always.
9 The great multitude of the Jews therefore knew that he was there, and came not because of Jesus only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he raised from the dead.
10 But the chief priests had determined that they would kill Lazarus also,
11 because many of the Jews, on account of him, went away and believed on Jesus.
12 On the next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, hearing that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem.
13 took branches of palm-trees and went forth to meet him, and cried: Hosanna, blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord, and blessed is the King of Israel.
14 But Jesus, finding a young ass, sat upon it, as it is written:
15 Fear not, daughter of Zion: behold, thy King comes sitting upon the foal of an ass.
16 These things his disciples knew not at first, but when Jesus had been glorified, then they remembered that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things for him.
17 The multitude that was with him therefore testified that he had called Lazarus from the tomb, and raised him from the dead.
18 For this reason also the multitude met him, because they heard that he had done this sign.
19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves: You see that you profit nothing: behold, the world has gone after him.
20 But of those that went up to worship at the feast, there were some Greeks:
21 these therefore came to Philip, who was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying: Sir, we wish to see Jesus.
22 Philip comes and tells Andrew: Andrew and Philip come and tell Jesus.
23 But Jesus answered them, saying: The hour has come that the Son of man should be glorified.
24 Verily, verily, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, itself abides alone; but if it die, it brings forth much fruit.
25 He that loves his life shall lose it, and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it to life eternal.
26 If any one serve me, let him follow me, and where I am, there shall my servant also be: if any one serve me him will my Father honor.
27 Now is my soul troubled, and what; shall I say? Father, save me from this hour. But for this cause came I to this hour.
28 Father, glorify thy name. There came therefore a voice from heaven: I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.
29 Therefore the multitude that stood by, hearing it, said that it thundered: others said: An angel has spoken to him.
30 Jesus answered and said: Not for my sake came this voice, but for yours.
31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out,
32 and I, when I shall have been lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself.
33 But this he said, signifying by what kind of death he was about to die.
34 Then the multitude answered him: We have heard out of the law that the Christ abides forever, and how sayest thou that the Son of man must be lifted up? Who is this, the Son of man?
35 Jesus therefore said to them: Yet a little while the light is among you. Walk while you have the light, that darkness overtake you not; and he that walks in darkness knows not whither he goes.
36 While you have the light, believe on the light, that you may become sons of light. These things spoke Jesus and went away and hid himself from them.
37 But though he had done so many signs before them, they believed not on him.
38 that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke: Lord, who of us has believed what is heard? and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
39 For this reason they could not believe, because Isaiah said again:
40 He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, lest they should see with their eyes, and understand with their heart, and should turn and I should give them health.
41 These things said Isaiah, because he saw his glory, and spoke of him.
42 Yet however, of the rulers, many believed on him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess, lest they should be put out of the synagogue;
43 for they loved the glory of men more than the glory of God.
44 But Jesus cried and said: He that believes on me believes not on me, but on him that sent me.
45 and he that sees me sees him that sent me.
46 I have come a light into the world, that whoever believes on me may not abide in darkness.
47 And if any one hear my words and keep them not, I judge him not; for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
48 He that rejects me and receives not my words, has that which judges him: the word that I have spoken, that shall judge him in the last day.
49 For I have not spoken of myself, but the Father who sent me, he himself has given me commandment what I should say and what I should speak.
50 And I know that his commandment is life eternal. What things therefore I speak, as the Father said to me, so I speak.
