and the scripture cannot be broken, 36 Sayye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God 2 37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. 38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works; that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him. 39 Therefore they sought again to take him : but he escaped out of their hand, 40 And went away again beyond Jordan, into the place where John at first baptized ; and there he abode. 41 And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle ; but all things that John spake of this man, were true. 42 And many believed on him there.
he whom thou lovest, is sick. 4. When 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. 5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. 6 When he had heard, therefore, that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was. 7 Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judea again. 8 His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee, and goest thou thither again : 9 Jesus 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: 10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him. 11 These 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. 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 comfort them concerning their brother. 20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house. 21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. 22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee. 23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. 24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life : he 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, Thé 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 come into the town, but was in 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. 36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him 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. 4O 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 bis eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard Isle : 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 thus had 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 done. VOL. IV.
47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, 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 expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish In Ot. 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 children of God that were scattered abroad. 53 Then, from that day forth, they took counsel 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. 55 And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand : and many went out of the country up to B b
THEN Jesus, six days before the passover, came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. . 2 There they made him a supper, and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. 3 Then 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. 4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him, 5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? 6 This 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. 7 Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this. 8 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always. 9 Much 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. 10 But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death; 11 Because, that by reason of him, many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus. 12 On the next day, much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13 Took branches of palmtrees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna; Blessed is the King of Israel, that comethin the name of the Lord. 14 And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon : as it is written, * 15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass’s colt. 16 These 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.
17 The people, therefore, that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record. 18 For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle. 19 The Pharisees, therefore, said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him. 20 And there were certain Greeks among them, that came up to worship at the feast: 21 The same came, therefore, to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus. 22 Philip cometh, and telleth Andrew; and again, Andrew and Philip tell Jesus. 23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. 24 Verily, 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. 25 He that loveth his life, shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world, shall keep it unto life eternal. 26 If 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.
27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour. 28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. 29 The people, therefore, that stoodby, and heard it, said, That it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. 30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not, because of me, but for your sakes. 31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. 32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all 777&n unto me. 33 (This he said, signifying what death he should die.) 34 The 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? 35 Then 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. 36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and depart
