John 11

NRS 1 Now a certain man was ill, Lazarus of Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. NIV 1 Now a man named Lazarus was sick. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. NRS 2 Mary was the one who anointed the Lord with perfume and wiped his feet with her hair; her brother Lazarus was ill. NIV 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. NRS 3 So the sisters sent a message to Jesus, "Lord, he whom you love is ill." NIV 3 So the sisters sent word to Jesus, "Lord, the one you love is sick." NRS 4 But when Jesus heard it, he said, "This illness does not lead to death; rather it is for God's glory, so that the Son of God may be glorified through it." NIV 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." NRS 5 Accordingly, though Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus, NIV 5 Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. NRS 6 after having heard that Lazarus was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was. NIV 6 Yet when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed where he was two more days. NRS 7 Then after this he said to the disciples, "Let us go to Judea again." NIV 7 Then he said to his disciples, "Let us go back to Judea." NRS 8 The disciples said to him, "Rabbi, the Jews were just now trying to stone you, and are you going there again?" NIV 8 "But Rabbi," they said, "a short while ago the Jews tried to stone you, and yet you are going back there?" NRS 9 Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours of daylight? Those who walk during the day do not stumble, because they see the light of this world. NIV 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. NRS 10 But those who walk at night stumble, because the light is not in them." NIV 10 It is when he walks by night that he stumbles, for he has no light." NRS 11 After saying this, he told them, "Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but I am going there to awaken him." NIV 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." NRS 12 The disciples said to him, "Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will be all right." NIV 12 His disciples replied, "Lord, if he sleeps, he will get better." NRS 13 Jesus, however, had been speaking about his death, but they thought that he was referring merely to sleep. NIV 13 Jesus had been speaking of his death, but his disciples thought he meant natural sleep. NRS 14 Then Jesus told them plainly, "Lazarus is dead. NIV 14 So then he told them plainly, "Lazarus is dead, NRS 15 For your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him." NIV 15 and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him." NRS 16 Thomas, who was called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, "Let us also go, that we may die with him." NIV 16 Then Thomas (called Didymus) said to the rest of the disciples, "Let us also go, that we may die with him." NRS 17 When Jesus arrived, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb four days. NIV 17 On his arrival, Jesus found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. NRS 18 Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, some two miles away, NIV 18 Bethany was less than two miles from Jerusalem, NRS 19 and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them about their brother. NIV 19 and many Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them in the loss of their brother. NRS 20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, while Mary stayed at home. NIV 20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed at home. NRS 21 Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. NIV 21 "Lord," Martha said to Jesus, "if you had been here, my brother would not have died. NRS 22 But even now I know that God will give you whatever you ask of him." NIV 22 But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask." NRS 23 Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again." NIV 23 Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again." NRS 24 Martha said to him, "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day." NIV 24 Martha answered, "I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day." NRS 25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, NIV 25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; NRS 26 and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" NIV 26 and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" NRS 27 She said to him, "Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, the one coming into the world." NIV 27 "Yes, Lord," she told him, "I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world." NRS 28 When she had said this, she went back and called her sister Mary, and told her privately, "The Teacher is here and is calling for you." NIV 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." NRS 29 And when she heard it, she got up quickly and went to him. NIV 29 When Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to him. NRS 30 Now Jesus had not yet come to the village, but was still at the place where Martha had met him. NIV 30 Now Jesus had not yet entered the village, but was still at the place where Martha had met him. NRS 31 The Jews who were with her in the house, consoling her, saw Mary get up quickly and go out. They followed her because they thought that she was going to the tomb to weep there. NIV 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. NRS 32 When Mary came where Jesus was and saw him, she knelt at his feet and said to him, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died." NIV 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." NRS 33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her also weeping, he was greatly disturbed in spirit and deeply moved. NIV 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. NRS 34 He said, "Where have you laid him?" They said to him, "Lord, come and see." NIV 34 "Where have you laid him?" he asked. "Come and see, Lord," they replied. NRS 35 Jesus began to weep. NIV 35 Jesus wept. NRS 36 So the Jews said, "See how he loved him!" NIV 36 Then the Jews said, "See how he loved him!" NRS 37 But some of them said, "Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?" NIV 37 But some of them said, "Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?" NRS 38 Then Jesus, again greatly disturbed, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone was lying against it. NIV 38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. NRS 39 Jesus said, "Take away the stone." Martha, the sister of the dead man, said to him, "Lord, already there is a stench because he has been dead four days." NIV 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." NRS 40 Jesus said to her, "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?" NIV 40 Then Jesus said, "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?" NRS 41 So they took away the stone. And Jesus looked upward and said, "Father, I thank you for having heard me. NIV 41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, "Father, I thank you that you have heard me. NRS 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I have said this for the sake of the crowd standing here, so that they may believe that you sent me." NIV 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." NRS 43 When he had said this, he cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!" NIV 43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!" NRS 44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet bound with strips of cloth, and his face wrapped in a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Unbind him, and let him go." NIV 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." NRS 45 Many of the Jews therefore, who had come with Mary and had seen what Jesus did, believed in him. NIV 45 Therefore many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what Jesus did, put their faith in him. NRS 46 But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what he had done. NIV 46 But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done. NRS 47 So the chief priests and the Pharisees called a meeting of the council, and said, "What are we to do? This man is performing many signs. NIV 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. NRS 48 If we let him go on like this, everyone will believe in him, and the Romans will come and destroy both our holy place and our nation." NIV 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." NRS 49 But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, "You know nothing at all! NIV 49 Then one of them, named Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, spoke up, "You know nothing at all! NRS 50 You do not understand that it is better for you to have one man die for the people than to have the whole nation destroyed." NIV 50 You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish." NRS 51 He did not say this on his own, but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus was about to die for the nation, NIV 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, NRS 52 and not for the nation only, but to gather into one the dispersed children of God. NIV 52 and not only for that nation but also for the scattered children of God, to bring them together and make them one. NRS 53 So from that day on they planned to put him to death. NIV 53 So from that day on they plotted to take his life. NRS 54 Jesus therefore no longer walked about openly among the Jews, but went from there to a town called Ephraim in the region near the wilderness; and he remained there with the disciples. NIV 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. NRS 55 Now the Passover of the Jews was near, and many went up from the country to Jerusalem before the Passover to purify themselves. NIV 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. NRS 56 They were looking for Jesus and were asking one another as they stood in the temple, "What do you think? Surely he will not come to the festival, will he?" NIV 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?" NRS 57 Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had given orders that anyone who knew where Jesus was should let them know, so that they might arrest him. NIV 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.
