John 11:1-29 Darby’s Translation

The Death of Lazarus

11 1  Now there was a certain [man] sick, Lazarus of Bethany, of the village of Mary and Martha her sister. 2  It was [the] Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick. 3  The sisters therefore sent to 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 by it. 5  Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. 6  When therefore he heard, He is sick, he remained two days then in the place where he was. 7  Then after this he says to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again. 8  The disciples say to him, Rabbi, [even but] now the Jews sought to stone thee, and goest thou thither again? 9  Jesus 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; 10  but if any one walk in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him. 11  These 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. 12  The disciples therefore said to him, Lord, if he be fallen asleep, he will get well. 13  But Jesus spoke of his death, but they thought that he spoke of the rest of sleep. 14  Jesus therefore then said to them plainly, Lazarus has died. 15  And I rejoice on your account that I was not there, in order that ye may believe. But let us go to him. 16  Thomas therefore, called Didymus, said to his fellow disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.

Jesus the Resurrection and the Life

17  Jesus therefore [on] arriving found him to have been four days already in the tomb. 18  Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about fifteen stadia off, 19  and many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, that they might console them concerning their brother. 20  Martha then, when she heard Jesus is coming, went to meet him; but Mary sat in the house. 21  Martha therefore said to Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died; 22  but even now I know, that whatsoever thou shalt ask of God, God will give thee. 23  Jesus says to her, Thy brother shall rise again. 24  Martha says to him, I know that he will rise again in the resurrection in the last day. 25  Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believes on me, though he have died, shall live; 26  and every one who lives and believes on me shall never die. Believest thou this? 27  She says to him, Yea, Lord; I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, who should come into the world.

Jesus Weeps

28  And having said this, she went away and called her sister Mary secretly, saying, The teacher is come and calls thee. 29  She, when she heard [that], rises up quickly and comes to him.
