THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

John (Author John)

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

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

11:3Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.

11:4When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

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

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

11:7Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again.

11:8His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?

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

11:10But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.

11:11These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.

11:12Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.

11:13Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.

11:14Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

11:15And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.

11:16Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.

11:17Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.

11:18Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off:

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

11:20Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.

11:21Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

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

11:23Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

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

11:25Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

11:26And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

11:27She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

11:28And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.

11:29As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.

11:30Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him.

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

11:32Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

11:33When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled,

11:34And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.

11:35Jesus wept.

11:36Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!

11:37And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?

11:38Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

11:39Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.

11:40Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

11:41Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

11:42And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

11:43And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

11:44And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

11:45Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.

11:46But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.

11:47Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.

11:48If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.

11:49And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,

11:50Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

11:51And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;

11:52And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

11:53Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.

11:54Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.

11:55And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.

11:56Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?

11:57Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.

12:1Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.

12:2There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.

12:3Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.

12:4Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him,

12:5Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?

12:6This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.

12:7Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.

12:8For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.

12:9Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.

12:10But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;

12:11Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.

12:12On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,

12:13Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

12:14And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,

12:15Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.

12:16These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.

12:17The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.

12:18For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.

12:19The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.

12:20And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast:

12:21The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.

12:22Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.

12:23And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.

12:24Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

12:25He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.

12:26If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

12:27Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.

12:28Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.

12:29The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.

12:30Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.

12:31Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.

12:32And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

12:33This he said, signifying what death he should die.

12:34The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?

12:35Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.

12:36While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.

12:37But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:

12:38That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?

12:39Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again,

12:40He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.

12:41These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him.

12:42Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:

12:43For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.

12:44Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.

12:45And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.

12:46I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

12:47And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

12:48He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

12:49For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

12:50And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

13:1Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.

13:2And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;

13:3Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;

13:4He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.

13:5After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.

13:6Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?

13:7Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.

13:8Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.

13:9Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.

13:10Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.

13:11For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.

13:12So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?

13:13Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.

13:14If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.

13:15For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.

13:16Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.

13:17If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

13:18I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.

13:19Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he.

13:20Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

13:21When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.

13:22Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.

13:23Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.

13:24Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake.

13:25He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?

13:26Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.

13:27And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.

13:28Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.

13:29For some of them thought, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus had said unto him, Buy those things that we have need of against the feast; or, that he should give something to the poor.

13:30He then having received the sop went immediately out: and it was night.

13:31Therefore, when he was gone out, Jesus said, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.

13:32If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him.

13:33Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.

13:34A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

13:35By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

13:36Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.

13:37Peter said unto him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thy sake.

13:38Jesus answered him, Wilt thou lay down thy life for my sake? Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice.
