Third Millennium Bible (TMB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now a certain man was sick named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town 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 that Mary who had anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.) 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 Therefore his sisters sent unto Him, saying, "Lord, behold, he whom Thou lovest is sick." 3 So the sisters sent word to Jesus, "Lord, the one you love is sick."
4 When Jesus heard that, He said, "This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby." 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 Lazarus. 5 Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.
6 When He heard therefore that Lazarus was sick, He stayed two days still in the same place where He was. 6 Yet when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days.
7 Then after that He said to His disciples, "Let us go into Judea again." 7 Then he said to his disciples, "Let us go back to Judea."
8 His disciples said unto Him, "Master, the Jews of late sought to stone Thee, and goest Thou thither 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 man walk in the day he stumbleth not, because he seeth 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 a man walk in the night, he stumbleth because there is no light in him." 10 It is when he walks by night that he stumbles, for he has no light."
11 These things said He, and after that He said unto them, "Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awaken 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 Then said His disciples, "Lord, if he sleep he shall do well." 12 His disciples replied, "Lord, if he sleeps, he will get better."
13 However Jesus spoke of his death, but they thought that He had spoken of the taking of rest in sleep. 13 Jesus had been speaking of his death, but his disciples thought he meant natural sleep.
14 Then Jesus said unto them plainly, "Lazarus is dead. 14 So then he told them plainly, "Lazarus is dead,
15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent that ye may believe. Nevertheless let us go unto 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 Then Thomas, who was called Didymus, said unto 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 Then when Jesus came, He found that he had lain in the grave four days already. 17 On his arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days.
18 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about two miles away, 18 Bethany was less than two miles from Jerusalem,
19 and many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary to comfort them concerning their brother. 19 and many Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them in the loss of their brother.
20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met Him; but Mary sat still in the house. 20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home.
21 Then Martha said unto Jesus, "Lord, if Thou hadst 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 But I know that even now, whatsoever Thou wilt ask of God, God will give it Thee." 22 But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask."
23 Jesus said unto her, "Thy brother shall rise again." 23 Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again."
24 Martha said unto Him, "I know that he shall rise again at the resurrection on the Last Day." 24 Martha answered, "I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day."
25 Jesus said unto her, "I am the resurrection and the Life. He that believeth in Me, though he were dead, 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 whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believest thou this?" 26 and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"
27 She said unto Him, "Yea, Lord, I believe that Thou art the Christ, the Son of God, who should come 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 And when she had so said, she went her way and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, "The Master has come, and calleth for thee." 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 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly and came unto Him. 29 When Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to him.
30 Now Jesus had not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met Him. 30 Now Jesus had not yet entered the village, but was still at the place where Martha had met him.
31 The Jews then, who were with her in the house and comforting her, when they saw that Mary rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, "She goeth unto the grave 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 when Mary had come where Jesus was and saw Him, she fell down at His feet, saying unto Him, "Lord, if Thou hadst 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 therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping who came with her, He groaned in the spirit and was 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 said, "Where have ye laid him?" They said unto 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 Then said the Jews, "Behold, how he loved him!" 36 Then the Jews said, "See how he loved him!"
37 And some of them said, "Could not this man, who opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?" 37 But some of them said, "Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?"
38 Jesus therefore again, groaning in Himself, came to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay against 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 ye away the stone." Martha, the sister of him that was dead, said unto Him, "Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he hath 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 unto her, "Said I not unto thee that if thou would believe, thou should 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 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. 41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, "Father, I thank you that you have heard me.
42 And I knew that Thou hearest Me always, but because of the people who stand by I said it, that they may believe that Thou hast sent 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 And when He thus had spoken, He cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth!" 43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!"
44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus said unto them, "Loose 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 Then many of the Jews who came to Mary and had seen the things which Jesus 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 their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done. 46 But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done.
47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council and said, "What shall we do? For this man doeth many miracles. 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 thus alone, all men will believe in him, and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and 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 And one of them named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, "Ye 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 nor consider that it is expedient for us that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not." 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 And he spoke this not of himself, but, being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that 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 that nation only, but that also He should gather together in one the children of God who were 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 forth, they took counsel together to put Him to death. 53 So from that day on they plotted to take his life.
54 Jesus therefore walked no longer openly among the Jews, but went thence unto a region near the wilderness into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with His 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 And the Jews' Passover was nigh at hand, and many went out of the country up 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 Then they sought for Jesus and spoke among themselves as they stood in the temple, saying, "What think ye -- 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 both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a command that if any man knew where He was, he should report it, that they might take 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.
