Revised Standard Version w/ Apocrypha (RSVA) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now a certain man was ill, Laz'arus of Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. 1 Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha.
2 It was Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Laz'arus was ill. 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 to him, saying, "Lord, he whom you love is ill." 3 So the sisters sent word to Jesus, "Lord, the one you love is sick."
4 But when Jesus heard it he said, "This illness is not unto death; it is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified by means of it." 4 When he heard this, Jesus said, "This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God's glory so that God's Son may be glorified through it."
5 Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Laz'arus. 5 Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.
6 So when he heard that he was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was. 6 Yet when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days.
7 Then after this he said to the disciples, "Let us go into Judea again." 7 Then he said to his disciples, "Let us go back to Judea."
8 The disciples said to him, "Rabbi, the Jews were but now seeking to stone you, and are you going there again?" 8 "But Rabbi," they said, "a short while ago the Jews tried to stone you, and yet you are going back there?"
9 Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any one walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. 9 Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours of daylight? A man who walks by day will not stumble, for he sees by this world's light.
10 But if any one walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him." 10 It is when he walks by night that he stumbles, for he has no light."
11 Thus he spoke, and then he said to them, "Our friend Laz'arus has fallen asleep, but I go to awake him out of sleep." 11 After he had said this, he went on to tell them, "Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up."
12 The disciples said to him, "Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will recover." 12 His disciples replied, "Lord, if he sleeps, he will get better."
13 Now Jesus had spoken of his death, but they thought that he meant taking rest in sleep. 13 Jesus had been speaking of his death, but his disciples thought he meant natural sleep.
14 Then Jesus told them plainly, "Laz'arus is dead; 14 So then he told them plainly, "Lazarus is dead,
15 and for your sake I am glad that I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him." 15 and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him."
16 Thomas, called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, "Let us also go, that we may die with him." 16 Then Thomas (called Didymus) said to the rest of the disciples, "Let us also go, that we may die with him."
17 Now when Jesus came, he found that Laz'arus had already been in the tomb four days. 17 On his arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days.
18 Bethany was near Jerusalem, about two miles off, 18 Bethany was less than two miles from Jerusalem,
19 and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them concerning their brother. 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 and met him, while Mary sat in the house. 20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home.
21 Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 21 "Lord," Martha said to Jesus, "if you had been here, my brother would not have died.
22 And even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you." 22 But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask."
23 Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again." 23 Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again."
24 Martha said to him, "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day." 24 Martha answered, "I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day."
25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, 25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies;
26 and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?" 26 and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"
27 She said to him, "Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, he who is coming into the world." 27 "Yes, Lord," she told him, "I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world."
28 When she had said this, she went and called her sister Mary, saying quietly, "The Teacher is here and is calling for you." 28 And after she had said this, she went back and called her sister Mary aside. "The Teacher is here," she said, "and is asking for you."
29 And when she heard it, she rose quickly and went to him. 29 When Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to him.
30 Now Jesus had not yet come to the village, but was still in the place where Martha had met 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 were with her in the house, consoling her, saw Mary rise quickly and go out, they followed her, supposing that she was going to the tomb to weep there. 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 Then Mary, when she came where Jesus was and saw him, fell at his feet, saying to him, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died." 32 When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died."
33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled; 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 and he said, "Where have you laid him?" They said to him, "Lord, come and see." 34 "Where have you laid him?" he asked. "Come and see, Lord," they replied.
35 Jesus wept. 35 Jesus wept.
36 So the Jews said, "See how he loved him!" 36 Then the Jews said, "See how he loved him!"
37 But some of them said, "Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?" 37 But some of them said, "Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?"
38 Then Jesus, deeply moved again, came to the tomb; it was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. 38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance.
39 Jesus said, "Take away the stone." Martha, the sister of the dead man, said to him, "Lord, by this time there will be an odor, for he has been dead four days." 39 "Take away the stone," he said. "But, Lord," said Martha, the sister of the dead man, "by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days."
40 Jesus said to her, "Did I not tell you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?" 40 Then Jesus said, "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?"
41 So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up his eyes and said, "Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. 41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, "Father, I thank you that you have heard me.
42 I knew that thou hearest me always, but I have said this on account of the people standing by, that they may believe that thou didst send 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."
43 When he had said this, he cried with a loud voice, "Laz'arus, come out." 43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!"
44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet bound with bandages, and his face wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Unbind him, and let him go." 44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, "Take off the grave clothes and let him go."
45 Many of the Jews therefore, who had come with Mary and had seen what he did, believed in him; 45 Therefore many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what Jesus did, put their faith in him.
46 but some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done. 46 But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done.
47 So the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered the council, and said, "What are we to do? For this man performs many signs. 47 Then the chief priests and the Pharisees called a meeting of the Sanhedrin. "What are we accomplishing?" they asked. "Here is this man performing many miraculous signs.
48 If we let him go on thus, every one will believe in him, and the Romans will come and destroy both our holy place and our nation." 48 If we let him go on like this, everyone will believe in him, and then the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation."
49 But one of them, Ca'iaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, "You know nothing at all; 49 Then one of them, named Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, spoke up, "You know nothing at all!
50 you do not understand that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation should not perish." 50 You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish."
51 He did not say this of his own accord, but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus should die for the nation, 51 He did not say this on his own, but as high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the Jewish nation,
52 and not for the nation only, but to gather into one the children of God who are scattered abroad. 52 and not only for that nation but also for the scattered children of God, to bring them together and make them one.
53 So from that day on they took counsel how to put him to death. 53 So from that day on they plotted to take his life.
54 Jesus therefore no longer went about openly among the Jews, but went from there to the country near the wilderness, to a town called E'phraim; and there he stayed with the disciples. 54 Therefore Jesus no longer moved about publicly among the Jews. Instead he withdrew to a region near the desert, to a village called Ephraim, where he stayed with his disciples.
55 Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and many went up from the country to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves. 55 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, many went up from the country to Jerusalem for their ceremonial cleansing before the Passover.
56 They were looking for Jesus and saying to one another as they stood in the temple, "What do you think? That he will not come to the feast?" 56 They kept looking for Jesus, and as they stood in the temple area they asked one another, "What do you think? Isn't he coming to the Feast at all?"
57 Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had given orders that if any one knew where he was, he should let them know, so that they might arrest him. 57 But the chief priests and Pharisees had given orders that if anyone found out where Jesus was, he should report it so that they might arrest him.
