1 And a certaine man was sicke, named Lazarus of Bethania, the towne of Marie, and her sister Martha.
2 (And it was that Mary which anointed the Lord with oyntment, and wiped his feete with her heare, whose brother Lazarus was sicke.)
4 When Iesus heard it, he saide, This sickenes is not vnto death, but for the glorie of God, that the Sonne of God might be glorified thereby.
6 And after he had heard that he was sicke, yet abode hee two dayes still in the same place where he was.
8 The disciples saide vnto him, Master, the Iewes lately sought to stone thee, and doest thou goe thither againe?
9 Iesus answered, Are there not twelue houres in the day? If a man walke in the day, hee stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.
11 These things spake he, and after, he said vnto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth: but I goe to wake him vp.
16 Then saide Thomas (which is called Didymus) vnto his felow disciples, Let vs also goe, that we may die with him.
20 Then Martha, when shee heard that Iesus was comming, went to meete him: but Mary sate still in the house.
25 Iesus saide vnto her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that beleeueth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he liue.
27 She said vnto him, Yea, Lord, I beleeue that thou art that Christ that Sonne of God, which should come into the world.
¶ 28 And when she had so saide, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.
31 The Iewes then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they sawe Marie, that she rose vp hastily, and went out, folowed her, saying, She goeth vnto the graue, to weepe there.
32 Then when Mary was come where Iesus was, and sawe him, she fell downe at his feete, saying vnto him, Lord, if thou haddest bene here, my brother had not bene dead.
33 When Iesus therefore saw her weepe, and the Iewes also weepe which came with her, hee groned in the spirit, and was troubled in himselfe,
37 And some of them saide, Coulde not he, which opened the eyes of the blinde, haue made also, that this man should not haue died?
38 Iesus therefore againe groned in himselfe, and came to the graue. And it was a caue, and a stone was layde vpon it.
39 Iesus saide, Take ye away the stone. Martha the sister of him that was dead, said vnto him, Lord, he stinketh alreadie: for he hath bene dead foure dayes.
40 Iesus saide vnto her, Saide I not vnto thee, that if thou diddest beleeue, thou shouldest see the glorie of God?
41 Then they tooke away the stone from the place where the dead was layde. And Iesus lift vp his eyes, and saide, Father, I thanke thee, because thou hast heard me.
42 I knowe that thou hearest me alwayes, but because of the people that stand by, I said it, that they may beleeue, that thou hast sent me.
44 Then he that was dead, came forth, bound hande and foote with bandes, and his face was bound with a napkin. Iesus said vnto them, Loose him, and let him goe.
¶ 45 Then many of the Iewes, which came to Mary, and had seene the thinges, which Iesus did, beleeued in him.
47 Then gathered the hie Priests, and the Pharises a councill, and said, What shall we doe? For this man doeth many miracles.
48 If we let him thus alone, all men will beleeue in him, and the Romanes will come and take away both our place, and the nation.
49 Then one of them named Caiaphas, which was the hie Priest that same yere, said vnto them, Ye perceiue nothing at all,
50 Nor yet doe you consider that it is expedient for vs, that one man die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
51 This spake hee not of himselfe: but being hie Priest that same yere, he prophecied that Iesus should die for that nation:
52 And not for that nation onely, but that he shoulde gather together in one the children of God, which were scattered.
54 Iesus therefore walked no more openly among the Iewes, but went thence vnto a countrey neere to the wildernes, into a citie called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.
¶ 55 And the Iewes Passeouer was at hande, and many went out of the countrey vp to Hierusalem before the Passeouer, to purifie themselues.
56 Then sought they for Iesus, and spake among themselues, as they stoode in the Temple, What thinke ye, that he cometh not to the feast?
57 Now both the high Priestes and the Pharises had giuen a commandement, that if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.
