17 So when Jesus came, He found that he had already been in the tomb four days.18 Now Bethany was near Jerusalem, about [a]two miles off;19 and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary, to console them concerning their brother.20 Martha therefore, when she heard that Jesus was coming, went to meet Him, but Mary [b]stayed at the house.21 Martha then said to Jesus, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.22 Even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You.”23 Jesus *said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”24 Martha *said to Him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.”25 Jesus said to her, “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 will never die. Do you believe this?”27 She *said to Him, “Yes, Lord; I have believed that You are [c]the Christ, the Son of God, even[d]He who comes into the world.”
28 When she had said this, she went away and called Mary her sister, saying secretly, “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 was still in the place where Martha met Him.31 Then the Jews who were with her in the house, and 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, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.”33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her also weeping, He was deeply moved in spirit and [e]was troubled,34 and said, “Where have you laid him?” They *said to Him, “Lord, come and see.”35 Jesus wept.36 So the Jews were saying, “See how He loved him!”37 But some of them said, “Could not this man, who opened the eyes of the blind man, [f]have kept this man also from dying?”
38 So Jesus, again being deeply moved within, *came to the tomb. Now it was a cave, and a stone was lying against it.39 Jesus *said, “Remove the stone.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, *said to Him, “Lord, by this time [g]there will be a stench, for he has been deadfour days.”40 Jesus *said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”41 So they removed the stone. Then Jesus raised His eyes, and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.42 I knew that You always hear Me; but because of the [h]people standing around I said it, so that they may believe that You sent Me.”43 When He had said these things, He cried out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth.”44 The man who had died came forth, bound hand and foot with wrappings, and his face was wrapped around with a cloth. Jesus *said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.”
45 Therefore many of the Jews who came to Mary, and saw what He had done, believed in Him.46 But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them the things which Jesus had done.
