12 Then said his disciples, Lord, If he sleep, he shall do well. 13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death; but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. 14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead. 15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe ; nevertheless, let us go unto him. 16 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellow disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him. 17 Then when Jesus came,” he found that he had lain in the grave four days already. 18 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off: 19 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to

now, whatsoever thou wilt ask
of God, God will give it thee.

that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live : 26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this 27. She saith unto him, Yea, Lord : I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world. 28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying The Master is come, and calleth for thee. 29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him. 30 Now Jesus was not yet.

that place where Martha met him. 31 The 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. 32 Then 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. 33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, 34 And said, Where have ye laid him : They said unto him, Lord, come and see. 35 Jesus wept. 35 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him t


37 And 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 ? 38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself, cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. 39 Jesus 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. 40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? 41 Then 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 hastheard me. 42 And 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. 43 And when he had thus spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. 44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave-clothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go. 45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him. 46 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and






told them what things Jesus had
47 's Then gathered the chief
priests and the pharisees a coun-
cil, and said, What do we ? for
this man doeth many miracles.
48 If we let him thus alone,
all men will believe on him : and
the Romans shall come and take
away both our place and nation.
49 And one of them, named
Caiaphas, being the high priest
that same year, said unto them,
Ye know nothing at all,
50 Nor consider that it is ex-
pedient for us, that one man
should die for the people, and
that the whole nation perish not.
51 And this spake he not of
himself: but being high priest
that year, he prophesied that
Jesus should die for that nation;
52 And not for that nation
only, but that also he should
gather together in one the chil-
dren of God that were scattered
abroad. -
53 Then from that day forth
they took council together for
to put him to death.
54 Jesus 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.
