30NowJesus had not yetcome into the village, but 1was still in the placewhereMarthamet Him.
312Then the Jews who were with her in the house, and 3consoling her, when they saw that Marygot up quickly and went out, they followed her, supposing that she was going to the tomb to weepthere.
32Therefore, whenMarycamewhereJesus was, she saw Him, and fell at His feet, saying to Him, "4Lord, 5if You had beenhere, my brother would not have died."
33WhenJesusthereforesaw her weeping, and 6the Jews who came with her also weeping, He 7was deeplymoved in spirit and a8was troubled,
and said, "Where have you laid him?" They said to Him, "Lord, come and see."
36So10the Jews were saying, "Seehow He 11loved him!"
But some of them said, "Could not thisman, who 12opened the eyes of the blindman, bhavekeptthismanalso from dying ?"
38SoJesus, again being deeplymovedwithin , came to the tomb. Now it was a 13cave, and a stone was lyingagainst it.
39Jesussaid, "Remove the stone."Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to Him, "Lord, by thistimecthere will be a stench, for he has been dead 14fourdays."
40Jesussaid to her, "15Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God ?"41So they removed the 16stone. ThenJesus17raised His eyes, and said, "18Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.42"I knew that You alwayshear Me; but 19because of the dpeoplestandingaround I said it, so that they may believe that 20You sent Me."43
When He had saidthesethings, He cried out with a loudvoice, "Lazarus, comeforth."44
The man who had diedcameforth, 21boundhand and foot with wrappings, and 22his face was wrappedaround with a cloth. Jesussaid to them, "Unbind him, and let him go."4523Thereforemany of the Jews24who came to Mary, and 25sawwhat He had done, believed in Him.
But some of them went to the 26Pharisees and told them the things whichJesus had done.
47Therefore27the chiefpriests and the Pharisees28convened a 29council, and were saying, "What are we doing ? For thisman is performingmanye30signs.
48"If we let Him go on likethis, allmen will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and takeawayboth our 31place and our nation."
But one of them, 32Caiaphas, 33who was highpriest that year, said to them, "You knownothing at all,
50nor do you take into account that 34it is expedient for you that onemandie for the people, and that the wholenation not perish."
51Now he did not saythisfon his owninitiative, but 35beinghighpriest that year, he prophesied that Jesus was going to die for the nation,
and not for the nationonly, but in order that He might also36gathertogether into one the children of God who are scatteredabroad.
53So from that day on they 37plannedtogether to kill Him.
54ThereforeJesus38nolonger continued to walkpubliclyamong the Jews, but wentaway from there to the countrynear the wilderness, into a citycalled39Ephraim ; and there He stayed with the disciples.
55Now40the Passover of the Jews was near, and manywent up to Jerusalem out of the countrybefore the Passover41to purifythemselves.
56So they 42were seeking for Jesus, and were saying to oneanother as they stood in the temple, "What do you think ; that He will not come to the feast at all ?"
57Now43the chiefpriests and the Pharisees had givenorders that ifanyoneknewwhere He was, he was to report it, so that they might seize Him.
