17 So when Jesus came, He found that he had already been in the tomb (A)four days. 18 Now (B)Bethany was near Jerusalem, about [a]two miles off; 19 and many of (C)the Jews had come to (D)Martha and Mary, (E)to console them concerning their brother. 20 (F)Martha therefore, when she heard that Jesus was coming, went to meet Him, but (G)Mary [b]stayed at the house. 21 Martha then said to Jesus, “(H)Lord, (I)if You had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 Even now I know that (J)whatever You ask of God, God will give You.” 23 Jesus *said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” 24 Martha *said to Him, “(K)I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, (L)I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, 26 and everyone who lives and believes in Me (M)will never die. Do you believe this?” 27 She *said to Him, “Yes, Lord; I have believed that You are [c](N)the Christ, the Son of God, even [d](O)He who comes into the world.”

28 When she had said this, she (P)went away and called Mary her sister, saying secretly, “(Q)The Teacher is here and is calling for you.” 29 And when she heard it, she *got up quickly and was coming to Him.

30 Now Jesus had not yet come into the village, but (R)was still in the place where Martha met Him. 31 (S)Then the Jews who were with her in the house, and (T)consoling her, when they saw that Mary got up quickly and went out, they followed her, supposing that she was going to the tomb to weep there. 32 Therefore, when Mary came where Jesus was, she saw Him, and fell at His feet, saying to Him, “(U)Lord, (V)if You had been here, my brother would not have died.” 33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and (W)the Jews who came with her also weeping, He (X)was deeply moved in spirit and [e](Y)was troubled, 34 and said, “Where have you laid him?” They *said to Him, “Lord, come and see.” 35 Jesus (Z)wept. 36 So (AA)the Jews were saying, “See how He (AB)loved him!” 37 But some of them said, “Could not this man, who (AC)opened the eyes of the blind man, [f]have kept this man also from dying?”
