John (Author John)

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

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

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

11:4But when Jesus heard it, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified by it.

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

11:6When therefore he heard, He is sick, he remained two days then in the place where he was.

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

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

11:9Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any one walk in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world;

11:10but if any one walk in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.

11:11These things said he; and after this he says to them, Lazarus, our friend, is fallen asleep, but I go that I may awake him out of sleep.

11:12The disciples therefore said to him, Lord, if he be fallen asleep, he will get well.

11:13But Jesus spoke of his death, but *they* thought that he spoke of the rest of sleep.

11:14Jesus therefore then said to them plainly, Lazarus has died.

11:15And I rejoice on your account that I was not there, in order that ye may believe. But let us go to him.

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

11:17Jesus therefore on arriving found him to have been four days already in the tomb.

11:18Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about fifteen stadia off,

11:19and many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, that they might console them concerning their brother.

11:20Martha then, when she heard Jesus is coming, went to meet him; but Mary sat in the house.

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

11:22but even now I know, that whatsoever thou shalt ask of God, God will give thee.

11:23Jesus says to her, Thy brother shall rise again.

11:24Martha says to him, I know that he will rise again in the resurrection in the last day.

11:25Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believes on me, though he have died, shall live;

11:26and every one who lives and believes on me shall never die. Believest thou this?

11:27She says to him, Yea, Lord; I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, who should come into the world.

11:28And having said this, she went away and called her sister Mary secretly, saying, The teacher is come and calls thee.

11:29She, when she heard that, rises up quickly and comes to him.

11:30Now Jesus had not yet come into the village, but was in the place where Martha came to meet him.

11:31The Jews therefore who were with her in the house and consoling her, seeing Mary that she rose up quickly and went out, followed her, saying, She goes to the tomb, that she may weep there.

11:32Mary therefore, when she came where Jesus was, seeing him, fell at his feet, saying to him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

11:33Jesus therefore, when he saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, was deeply moved in spirit, and was troubled,

11:34and said, Where have ye put him? They say to him, Lord, come and see.

11:35Jesus wept.

11:36The Jews therefore said, Behold how he loved him!

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

11:38Jesus therefore, again deeply moved in himself, comes to the tomb. Now it was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

11:39Jesus says, Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of the dead, says to him, Lord, he stinks already, for he is four days there.

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

11:41They took therefore the stone away. And Jesus lifted up his eyes on high and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me;

11:42but I knew that thou always hearest me; but on account of the crowd who stand around I have said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

11:43And having said this, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

11:44And the dead came forth, bound feet and hands with graveclothes, and his face was bound round with a handkerchief. Jesus says to them, Loose him and let him go.

11:45Many therefore of the Jews who came to Mary and saw what he had done, believed on him;

11:46but some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done.

11:47The chief priests, therefore, and the Pharisees gathered a council, and said, What do we? for this man does many signs.

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

11:49But a certain one of them, Caiaphas, being high priest that year, said to them, Ye know nothing

11:50nor consider that it is profitable for you that one man die for the people, and not that the whole nation perish.

11:51But this he did not say of himself; but, being high priest that year, prophesied that Jesus was going to die for the nation;

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

11:53From that day therefore they took counsel that they might kill him.

11:54Jesus therefore walked no longer openly among the Jews, but went away thence into the country near the desert, to a city called Ephraim, and there he sojourned with the disciples.

11:55But the passover of the Jews was near, and many went up to Jerusalem out of the country before the passover, that they might purify themselves.

11:56They sought therefore Jesus, and said among themselves, standing in the temple, What do ye think? that he will not come to the feast?

11:57Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had given commandment that if any one knew where he was, he should make it known, that they might take him.

12:1Jesus therefore, six days before the passover, came to Bethany, where was the dead man Lazarus, whom Jesus raised from among the dead.

12:2There therefore they made him a supper, and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those at table with him.

12:3Mary therefore, having taken a pound of ointment of pure nard of great price, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair, and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.

12:4One of his disciples therefore, Judas son of Simon, Iscariote, who was about to deliver him up, says,

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

12:6But he said this, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief and had the bag, and carried what was put into it.

12:7Jesus therefore said, Suffer her to have kept this for the day of my preparation for burial;

12:8for ye have the poor always with you, but me ye have not always.

12:9A great crowd therefore of the Jews knew that he was there; and they came, not because of Jesus only, but also that they might see Lazarus whom he raised from among the dead.

12:10But the chief priests took counsel that they might kill Lazarus also,

12:11because many of the Jews went away on his account and believed on Jesus.

12:12On the morrow a great crowd who came to the feast, having heard that Jesus is coming into Jerusalem,

12:13took branches of palms and went out to meet him, and cried, Hosanna, blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord, the King of Israel.

12:14And Jesus, having found a young ass, sat upon it; as it is written,

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

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

12:17The crowd therefore that was with him bore witness because he had called Lazarus out of the tomb, and raised him from among the dead.

12:18Therefore also the crowd met him because they had heard that he had done this sign.

12:19The Pharisees therefore said to one another, Ye see that ye profit nothing: behold, the world is gone after him.

12:20And there were certain Greeks among those who came up that they might worship in the feast;

12:21these therefore came to Philip, who was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and they asked him saying, Sir, we desire to see Jesus.

12:22Philip comes and tells Andrew, and again Andrew comes and Philip, and they tell Jesus.

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

12:24Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except the grain of wheat falling into the ground die, it abides alone; but if it die, it bears much fruit.

12:25He that loves his life shall lose it, and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it to life eternal.

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

12:27Now is my soul troubled, and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour. But on account of this have I come to this hour.

12:28Father, glorify thy name. There came therefore a voice out of heaven, I both have glorified and will glorify it again.

12:29The crowd therefore, which stood there and heard it, said that it had thundered. Others said, An angel has spoken to him.

12:30Jesus answered and said, Not on my account has this voice come, but on yours.

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 out of the earth, will draw all to me.

12:33But this he said signifying by what death he was about to die.

12:34The crowd answered him, We have heard out of the law that the Christ abides for ever; and how sayest thou that the Son of man must be lifted up? Who *is* this, the Son of man?

12:35Jesus therefore said to them, Yet a little while is the light amongst you. Walk while ye have the light, that darkness may not overtake you. And he who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes.

12:36While ye have the light, believe in the light, that ye may become sons of light. Jesus said these things, and going away hid himself from them.

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

12:38that the word of the prophet Esaias which he said might be fulfilled, Lord, who has believed our report? and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

12:39On this account they could not believe, because Esaias said again,

12:40He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, that they may not see with their eyes, and understand with their heart and be converted, and I should heal them.

12:41These things said Esaias because he saw his glory and spoke of him.

12:42Although indeed from among the rulers also many believed on him, but on account of the Pharisees did not confess him, that they might not be put out of the synagogue:

12:43for they loved glory from men rather than glory from God.

12:44But Jesus cried and said, He that believes on me, believes not on me, but on him that sent me;

12:45and he that beholds me, beholds him that sent me.

12:46I am come into the world as light, that every one that believes on me may not abide in darkness;

12:47and if any one hear my words and do not keep them, I judge him not, for I am not come that I might judge the world, but that I might save the world.

12:48He that rejects me and does not receive my words, has him who judges him: the word which I have spoken, that shall judge him in the last day.

12:49For I have not spoken from myself, but the Father who sent me has himself given me commandment what I should say and what I should speak;

12:50and I know that his commandment is life eternal. What therefore I speak, as the Father has said to me, so I speak.

13:1Now before the feast of the passover, Jesus, knowing that his hour had come that he should depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, loved them to the end.

13:2And during supper, the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas son of Simon, Iscariote, that he should deliver him up,

13:3Jesus, knowing that the Father had given him all things into his hands, and that he came out from God and was going to God,

13:4rises from supper and lays aside his garments, and having taken a linen towel he girded himself:

13:5then he pours water into the washhand basin, and began to wash the feet of the disciples, and to wipe them with the linen towel with which he was girded.

13:6He comes therefore to Simon Peter; and *he* says to him, Lord, dost thou wash *my* feet?

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

13:8Peter says to him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, Unless I wash thee, thou hast not part with me.

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

13:10Jesus says to him, He that is washed all over needs not to wash save his feet, but is wholly clean; and ye are clean, but not all.

13:11For he knew him that delivered him up: on account of this he said, Ye are not all clean.

13:12When therefore he had washed their feet, and taken his garments, having sat down again, he said to them, Do ye know what I have done to you?

13:13Ye call me the Teacher and the Lord, and ye say well, for I am so.

13:14If I therefore, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, ye also ought to wash one another's feet;

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

13:16Verily, verily, I say to you, The bondman is not greater than his lord, nor the sent greater than he who has sent him.

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

13:18I speak not of you all. I know those whom I have chosen; but that the scripture might be fulfilled, He that eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me.

13:19I tell you it now before it happens, that when it happens, ye may believe that I am he.

13:20Verily, verily, I say to you, He who receives whomsoever I shall send receives me; and he that receives me receives him who has sent me.

13:21Having said these things, Jesus was troubled in spirit, and testified and said, Verily, verily, I say to you, that one of you shall deliver me up.

13:22The disciples therefore looked one on another, doubting of whom he spoke.

13:23Now there was at table one of his disciples in the bosom of Jesus, whom Jesus loved.

13:24Simon Peter makes a sign therefore to him to ask who it might be of whom he spoke.

13:25But he, leaning on the breast of Jesus, says to him, Lord, who is it?

13:26Jesus answers, He it is to whom I, after I have dipped the morsel, give it. And having dipped the morsel, he gives it to Judas son of Simon, Iscariote.

13:27And, after the morsel, then entered Satan into him. Jesus therefore says to him, What thou doest, do quickly.

13:28But none of those at table knew why he said this to him;

13:29for some supposed, because Judas had the bag, that Jesus was saying to him, Buy the things of which we have need for the feast; or that he should give something to the poor.

13:30Having therefore received the morsel, he went out immediately; and it was night.

13:31When therefore he was gone out Jesus says, Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him.

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

13:33Children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me; and, as I said to the Jews, Where I go ye cannot come, I say to you also now.

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

13:35By this shall all know that ye are disciples of mine, if ye have love amongst yourselves.

13:36Simon Peter says to him, Lord, where goest thou? Jesus answered him, Where I go thou canst not follow me now, but thou shalt follow me after.

13:37Peter says to him, Lord, why cannot I follow thee now? I will lay down my life for thee.

13:38Jesus answers, Thou wilt lay down thy life for me! Verily, verily, I say to thee, The cock shall not crow till thou hast denied me thrice.
