John Chapter 11
11:36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!
11:37 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?
11:38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It
was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
11:39 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.
11:40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest
believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
11:41 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 hast heard me.
11:42 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.
11:43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus,
11:44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with
graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith
unto them, Loose him, and let him go.
11:45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things
which Jesus did, believed on him.
11:46 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them
what things Jesus had done.
11:47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and
said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.
11:48 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.
11:49 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same
year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all,
11:50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die
for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
11:51 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year,
he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;
11:52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather
together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.
11:53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him
11:54 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.
11:55 And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the
country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.
11:56 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they
stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?
11:57 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a
commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it,
that they might take him.
