Chapter Eleven

NOW a certain one was sick, El`azar, out of Bethany, from the town of Miriam and her sister Martha.
2 (Miriam It was which anointed IaHUShUA' with ointment, and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother El`azar was sick.)
5 Now this IaHUShUA' loved Martha, and her sister, and El`azar.
3 These things being so, these sisters sent unto Him, saying, ADON, behold, one that You love is sick.
4 When IaHUShUA' heard, He said, This sickness is not to the advantage of death, but for the sake of this excellence of IaHUeH, in order that the Son of IaHUeH might be exalted thereby.
6 When He had heard therefore that he was sick, He actually at that time remained two days in that place He was.
7 Then after that He said to these disciples, Lead on into Iahudah again.
8 These disciples say to Him, RaBBI, these Iahudim were just seeking to stone You; and again You would go there?
9 IaHUShUA' answered, Are there not twelve hours in a day? If a certain one walk in the daytime, that one does not stumble, because they see the light of this world.
10 But if certain one walk in the night, they stumble, because there is no light with them.
11 These things said He: and after that He said to them, This our friend El`azar is asleep; nevertheless I bring Myself over, so that I may wake him up.
12 Then said His disciples, ADONI, if he sleep, he shall be restored to health.
13 Howbeit IaHUShUA' spoke concerning His death: but they supposed that He had spoken about taking of rest, in this sleep.
14 Then these things being so, IaHUShUA' said to them clearly, El`azar is dead.
15 And I rejoice through you, in order that you may believe; that I was not there. Nevertheless bring us on with regard to him.
16 Then said Ta'om (called Thomas or Didymus), to his fellow disciples, Let us go also, so that we may die with Him.
17 Then when IaHUShUA' came, He found he already had been four days held entombed.
20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that IaHUShUA' was coming, went and met Him: Miriam moreover sat in the house.
21 Then said Martha to the advantage of IaHUShUA',ADON, if you had been here, perhaps my brother would not have died.
22 Certainly I know, that even now, perhaps as much as You will ask of IaHUeH, will give You this IaHUeH.
23 IaHUShUA' said to her, this your brother will stand up again.
24 Martha said to Him, I know that he shall stand up again in the raising up at the last time.
25 IaHUShUA' said to her, I am the raising up, and the life: the one that has faith with respect toward Me, even if they were dead, they shall live:
26 And whosoever lives and is established in Me shall not at all die into this forever; are you confident in this?
27 She said to Him, Yea: ADONI I am convinced that You are Ha-MaShIaCh, the Son of IaHUeH, that into the world should come!
28 And that thing when she had said, she went her way, and called Miriam her sister privately, saying, The Instructor is near, and calls you.
29 Moreover even as she heard, she arose without delay, and came toward Him.
30 Except IaHUShUA' was not yet come into the town, but was still in that place where Martha met Him.
18 Now Bethany was near to IeRUShaLeM, about two miles:
19 And many of the Iahudim came to Martha and Miriam, in order to comfort them on account of their brother.
31 The Iahudim then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Miriam, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, supposing, she withdrew to the tomb for the purpose of mourning there.
32 Consequently even as this Miriam was come where IaHUShUA' was aknowledged Him, she fell down at His feet, saying to Him, ADONI, if You had been here, perhaps not have died my brother.
33 When IaHUShUA' therefore saw her mourning, and accompanying with her, those Iahudim mourning, He deeply sighed this breath, and was stirred up Himself.
34 And said, Where have you laid him? They said to Him, ADONI, come and behold.
35 Wept this IaHUShUA.
36 Then said the Iahudim, Behold how He was a friend to him!
37 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, also have caused that this man should not have died?
38 IaHUShUA' therefore again deeply sighing in Himself comes toward the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
39 IaHUShUA' said, Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, says to Him, ADONI, already he stinks why are they lifting away the stone?: for he four days has been.
40 IaHUShUA' said to her, Spoke I not to you, that, if You would have faith, you would behold the excellence of IaHUeH?
41 Then they took away the stone. And IaHUShUA' lifted His eyes upward, and spoke, Father, I give thanks to You because You have heard Me.
42 And I percieve that at all times You hear Me: but on account of the people which stand all around I spoke, in order that they may become convinced that You have set Me apart sending Me.
43 And when He had spoken these things, He cried with a great voice, El`azar, come out.
44 He that was dead came forth, bound foot and hand with graveclothes: and his face with a towel, was bound about. IaHUShUA' said to them, Loose him, and let him withdraw.
45 Then many of the Iahudim which came to Miriam, and had seen what had been done, aknowledged Him.
46 But some from them went away to the advantage of the Pharisees, and told them what things IaHUShUA' had done.
47 Gathered accordingly the chief priest and these Pharisees an assembly, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.
48 If we let Him alone in this manner, all will put confidence into Him: and the Romans shall come and take away even our place and people.
49 And one of them, a certain Kaiaphas, being high priest that one year, spoke to them, You percieve nothing at all,
50 Nor even consider that it bears together for you, that one man should die in behalf of the people, and not the whole nation perish.
51 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that IaHUShUA' should die for that nation;
52 And not for that nation only, but that also the children of IaHUeH (IeShRaEL) that were scattered abroad, He should gather together into One.
53 Then from that day forth they deliberated together in order to put Him to death.
54 IaHUShUA' therefore walked no longer openly among the Iahudim; but went from that place into a region near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there abode with His disciples.
55 And Passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to IeRUShaLeM before the Passover, in order to purify themselves.
56 Then sought they for IaHUShUA',and said among one another, in the temple as they stood, What do you think, that He will not at all come to the feast?
57 Now both the chief priest and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any one knew where He was, they should disclose, what how they might take Him.
