John 11

Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary (Miryam) and her sister Martha.

2 (It was that Mary (Miryam) who anointed the Lord (YHWH) with ointment, and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)

3 Therefore his sisters sent unto Him, saying, “My Lord (Adonai), behold, he whom You lovest is sick.”

4 When YHWH heard that, He said, “This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)), that the B47Humanity of El (YHWH) might be glorified thereby.”

5 Now YHWH loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus.

6 When He had heard therefore that he was sick, He abode two days still in the same place where he was.

7 Then after that saith He to His disciples, “Let us go into Judah (Yehudah) again.”

8 His disciples say unto Him, “Teacher (Rabbi), the Jews (Yehudim) of late sought to stone You; and goest You thither again?”

9 YHWH answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walks in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.

10 But if a man walks in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.”

11 These things said He; and after that He saith unto them, “Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.”

12 Then said His disciples, “Lord (Adonai), if he sleeps, he shall do well.”

13 Howbeit YHWH spake of his death; but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.

14 Then said YHWH unto them plainly, “Lazarus is dead.

15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent you may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.”

16 Then said Thomas, who is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, “Let us also go, that we may die with him.”

17 Then when YHWH came, He found that he had lain in the grave four days already.

18 Now Bethany was near unto Jerusalem (Yerushalayim), about fifteen furlongs off.

19 And many of the Jews (Yehudim) came to Martha and Mary (Miryam), to comfort them concerning their brother.

20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that YHWH was coming, went and met Him; but Mary (Miryam) sat still in the house.

21 Then said Martha unto YHWH, “Lord (Adonai), if You hadst been here, my brother had not died.

22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever You wilt ask of God (Elohim), God (Elohim) will give it You.”

23 YHWH saith unto her, “Your brother shall rise again.”

24 Martha saith unto Him, “I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”

25 YHWH said unto her, “I am the resurrection, and the life; he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live;

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believest you this?”

27 She saith unto Him, “Yea, Lord (Adonai); I believe that You are the Messiah (haMashiach), B47Humanity of El (YHWH), who should come into the world.”

28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary (Miryam) her sister secretly, saying, “The Teacher (Rabbi) is come, and calleth for you.”

29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto Him.

30 Now YHWH was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met Him.

31 The Jews (Yehudim) then who were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary (Miryam), that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, “She goeth unto the grave to weep there.”

32 Then when Mary (Miryam) was come where YHWH was, and saw Him, she fell down at His feet, saying unto Him, “Lord (Adonai), if You hadst been here, my brother had not died.”

33 When YHWH therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews (Yehudim) also weeping who came with her, He groaned in the spirit, and was troubled,

34 And said, “Where have you laid him?” They said unto Him, “Lord (Adonai), come and see.”

35 YHWH wept.

36 Then said the Jews (Yehudim), “Behold 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?”

38 YHWH therefore again groaning in Himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

39 YHWH said, “Take you away the stone.” Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto Him, “Lord (Adonai), by this time he stinketh; for he hath been dead four days.”

40 YHWH saith unto her, “Said I not unto you, that, if you wouldest believe, you shouldest see the glory of God (Elohim)?”

41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And YHWH lifted up His eyes, and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.

42 And I knew that You hearest Me always; but because of the people who stand by I said it, that they may believe that You have sent Me.”

43 And when He thus had spoken, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth.”

44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes; and his face was bound about with a napkin. YHWH saith unto them, “Loose him, and let him go.”

45 Then many of the Jews (Yehudim) who came to Mary (Miryam), and had seen the things which YHWH did, believed on Him.

46 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things YHWH had done.

47 Then gathered the chief priests (kohanim) and the Pharisees a council, and said, “What do we? For this Man doeth many miracles.

48 If we let Him thus alone, all men will believe on Him; and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.”

49 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest (kohen hagadol) that same year, said unto them, “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 perishes not.”

51 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest (kohen hagadol) that year, he prophesied that YHWH should die for that nation;

52 And not for that nation only, but that also He should gather together in one the children of God (Elohim) that were scattered abroad.

53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put Him to death.

54 YHWH therefore walked no more openly among the Jews (Yehudim); but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with His disciples.

55 And the Jews’ (Yehudim) Passover (Pesach) was near at hand; and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem (Yerushalayim) before the Passover (Pesach), to purify themselves.

56 Then sought they for YHWH, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, “What think you, that He will not come to the feast?”

57 Now both the chief priests (kohanim) and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where He was, he should shew it, that they might take Him.
