John 11:1-29 American Standard Version

The Death of Lazarus

11 1  Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, of the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2  And it was that Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick. 3  The sisters therefore sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. 4  But 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 thereby. 5  Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. 6  When therefore he heard that he was sick, he abode at that time two days in the place where he was. 7  Then after this he saith to the disciples, Let us go into Judaea again. 8  The disciples say unto him, Rabbi, the Jews were but now seeking to stone thee; and goest thou thither again? 9  Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If a 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 the light is not in him. 11  These things spake he: and after this he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus is fallen asleep; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. 12  The disciples therefore said unto him, Lord, if he is fallen asleep, he will recover. 13  Now Jesus had spoken of his death: but they thought that he spake of taking rest in sleep. 14  Then Jesus therefore said 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  Thomas therefore, who is called Didymus, said unto his fellow-disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.

Jesus the Resurrection and the Life

17  So when Jesus came, he found that he had been in the tomb four days already. 18  Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off; 19  and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary, to console them concerning their brother. 20  Martha therefore, when she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary still sat in the house. 21  Martha therefore said unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. 22  And even now I know that, whatsoever thou shalt ask of God, God will give 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 on me, though he die, yet shall he live; 26  and whosoever liveth and believeth on me shall never die. Believest thou this? 27  She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I have believed that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, [even] he that cometh into the world.

Jesus Weeps

28  And when she had said this, she went away, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Teacher is her, and calleth thee. 29  And she, when she heard it, arose quickly, and went unto him.
