John 11:1-43 11 Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 (This Mary, whose brother Lazarus now lay sick, was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord and wiped his feet with her hair.) 3 So the sisters sent word to Jesus, äóìLord, the one you love is sick.äó 4 When he heard this, Jesus said, äóìThis sickness will not end in death. No, it is for Godäó»s glory so that Godäó»s Son may be glorified through it.äó 5 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. 6 So when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days, 7 and then he said to his disciples, äóìLet us go back to Judea.äó 8 äóìBut Rabbi,äó they said, äóìa short while ago the Jews there tried to stone you, and yet you are going back?äó 9 Jesus answered, äóìAre there not twelve hours of daylight? Anyone who walks in the daytime will not stumble, for they see by this worldäó»s light. 10 It is when a person walks at night that they stumble, for they have no light.äó 11 After he had said this, he went on to tell them, äóìOur friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up.äó 12 His disciples replied, äóìLord, if he sleeps, he will get better.äó 13 Jesus had been speaking of his death, but his disciples thought he meant natural sleep. 14 So then he told them plainly, äóìLazarus is dead, 15 and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.äó 16 Then Thomas (also known as Didymus) said to the rest of the disciples, äóìLet us also go, that we may die with him.äó Jesus Comforts the Sisters of Lazarus 17 On his arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. 18 Now Bethany was less than two miles from Jerusalem, 19 and many Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them in the loss of their brother. 20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home. 21 äóìLord,äó Martha said to Jesus, äóìif you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.äó 23 Jesus said to her, äóìYour brother will rise again.äó 24 Martha answered, äóìI know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.äó 25 Jesus said to her, äóìI am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?äó 27 äóìYes, Lord,äó she replied, äóìI believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.äó 28 After she had said this, she went back and called her sister Mary aside. äóìThe Teacher is here,äó she said, äóìand is asking for you.äó 29 When Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to him. 30 Now Jesus had not yet entered the village, but was still at the place where Martha had met him. 31 When the Jews who had been with Mary in the house, comforting her, noticed how quickly she got up and went out, they followed her, supposing she was going to the tomb to mourn there. 32 When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said, äóìLord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.äó 33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. 34 äóìWhere have you laid him?äó he asked. äóìCome and see, Lord,äó they replied. 35 Jesus wept. 36 Then the Jews said, äóìSee how he loved him!äó 37 But some of them said, äóìCould not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?äó 38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39 äóìTake away the stone,äó he said. äóìBut, Lord,äó said Martha, the sister of the dead man, äóìby this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.äó 40 Then Jesus said, äóìDid I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?äó 41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, äóìFather, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.äó 43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, äóìLazarus, come out!äó
