John 11:1-45

CEB 1 A certain man, Lazarus, was ill. He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. ( NRS 1 Now a certain man was ill, Lazarus of Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. CEB 2 This was the Mary who anointed the Lord with fragrant oil and wiped his feet with her hair. Her brother Lazarus was ill.) NRS 2 Mary was the one who anointed the Lord with perfume and wiped his feet with her hair; her brother Lazarus was ill. CEB 3 So the sisters sent word to Jesus, saying, "Lord, the one whom you love is ill." NRS 3 So the sisters sent a message to Jesus, "Lord, he whom you love is ill." CEB 4 When he heard this, Jesus said, "This illness isn't fatal. It's for the glory of God so that God's Son can be glorified through it." 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." CEB 5 Jesus loved Martha, her sister, and Lazarus. NRS 5 Accordingly, though Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus, CEB 6 When he heard that Lazarus was ill, he stayed where he was. After two days, NRS 6 after having heard that Lazarus was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was. CEB 7 he said to his disciples, "Let's return to Judea again." NRS 7 Then after this he said to the disciples, "Let us go to Judea again." CEB 8 The disciples replied, "Rabbi, the Jewish opposition wants to stone you, but you want to go back?" NRS 8 The disciples said to him, "Rabbi, the Jews were just now trying to stone you, and are you going there again?" CEB 9 Jesus answered, "Aren't there twelve hours in the day? Whoever walks in the day doesn't stumble because they see the light of the world. 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. CEB 10 But whoever walks in the night does stumble because the light isn't in them." NRS 10 But those who walk at night stumble, because the light is not in them." CEB 11 He continued, "Our friend Lazarus is sleeping, but I am going in order to wake him up." NRS 11 After saying this, he told them, "Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but I am going there to awaken him." CEB 12 The disciples said, "Lord, if he's sleeping, he will get well." NRS 12 The disciples said to him, "Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will be all right." CEB 13 They thought Jesus meant that Lazarus was in a deep sleep, but Jesus had spoken about Lazarus' death. NRS 13 Jesus, however, had been speaking about his death, but they thought that he was referring merely to sleep. CEB 14 Jesus told them plainly, "Lazarus has died. NRS 14 Then Jesus told them plainly, "Lazarus is dead. CEB 15 For your sakes, I'm glad I wasn't there so that you can believe. Let's go to him." NRS 15 For your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him." CEB 16 Then Thomas (the one called Didymus) said to the other disciples, "Let us go too so that we may die with Jesus." NRS 16 Thomas, who was called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, "Let us also go, that we may die with him." CEB 17 When Jesus arrived, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. NRS 17 When Jesus arrived, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb four days. CEB 18 Bethany was a little less than two miles from Jerusalem. NRS 18 Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, some two miles away, CEB 19 Many Jews had come to comfort Martha and Mary after their brother's death. NRS 19 and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them about their brother. CEB 20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went to meet him, while Mary remained in the house. NRS 20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, while Mary stayed at home. CEB 21 Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother wouldn't have died. NRS 21 Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. CEB 22 Even now I know that whatever you ask God, God will give you." NRS 22 But even now I know that God will give you whatever you ask of him." CEB 23 Jesus told her, "Your brother will rise again." NRS 23 Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again." CEB 24 Martha replied, "I know that he will rise in the resurrection on the last day." NRS 24 Martha said to him, "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day." CEB 25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me will live, even though they die. NRS 25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, CEB 26 Everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" NRS 26 and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" CEB 27 She replied, "Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, God's Son, the one who is coming into the world." 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." CEB 28 After she said this, she went and spoke privately to her sister Mary, "The teacher is here and he's calling for you." 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." CEB 29 When Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to Jesus. NRS 29 And when she heard it, she got up quickly and went to him. CEB 30 He hadn't entered the village but was still in the place where Martha had met him. NRS 30 Now Jesus had not yet come to the village, but was still at the place where Martha had met him. CEB 31 When the Jews who were comforting Mary in the house saw her get up quickly and leave, they followed her. They assumed she was going to mourn at the tomb. 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. CEB 32 When Mary arrived where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother wouldn't have died." 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." CEB 33 When Jesus saw her crying and the Jews who had come with her crying also, he was deeply disturbed and troubled. 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. CEB 34 He asked, "Where have you laid him?" They replied, "Lord, come and see." NRS 34 He said, "Where have you laid him?" They said to him, "Lord, come and see." CEB 35 Jesus began to cry. NRS 35 Jesus began to weep. CEB 36 The Jews said, "See how much he loved him!" NRS 36 So the Jews said, "See how he loved him!" CEB 37 But some of them said, "He healed the eyes of the man born blind. Couldn't he have kept Lazarus from dying?" NRS 37 But some of them said, "Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?" CEB 38 Jesus was deeply disturbed again when he came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone covered the entrance. NRS 38 Then Jesus, again greatly disturbed, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone was lying against it. CEB 39 Jesus said, "Remove the stone." Martha, the sister of the dead man, said, "Lord, the smell will be awful! He's been dead four days." 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." CEB 40 Jesus replied, "Didn't I tell you that if you believe, you will see God's glory?" NRS 40 Jesus said to her, "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?" CEB 41 So they removed the stone. Jesus looked up and said, "Father, thank you for hearing me. NRS 41 So they took away the stone. And Jesus looked upward and said, "Father, I thank you for having heard me. CEB 42 I know you always hear me. I say this for the benefit of the crowd standing here so that they will believe that you sent 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." CEB 43 Having said this, Jesus shouted with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!" NRS 43 When he had said this, he cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!" CEB 44 The dead man came out, his feet bound and his hands tied, and his face covered with a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Untie him and let him go." 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." CEB 45 Therefore, many of the Jews who came with Mary and saw what Jesus did believed in him. NRS 45 Many of the Jews therefore, who had come with Mary and had seen what Jesus did, believed in him.
