John 11 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

11 And there was a sick man [Forsooth there was some sick man], Lazarus of Bethany, of the castle of Mary and Martha, his sisters.

And it was Mary, which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hairs, whose brother Lazarus was sick.

Therefore his sisters sent to him, and said [saying], Lord, lo! he whom thou lovest, is sick.

And Jesus heard, and said to them, This sickness is not to the death, but for the glory of God, that man's Son be glorified by him [that God's Son be glorified by it].

And Jesus loved Martha, and her sister Mary, and Lazarus.

Therefore when Jesus heard, that he was sick, then he dwelled in the same place two days.

And after these things he said to his disciples, Go we again into Judaea.

The disciples say to him, Master [Rabbi, or Master], now the Jews sought to stone thee, and again goest thou thither?

Jesus answered, Whether there be not twelve hours of the day? If any man wander in the day, he hurteth not, for he seeth the light of this world. [Jesus answered, Whether there be not twelve hours in the day? Whosoever walketh in the day, he hurteth not, for he seeth the light of this world.]

10 But if he wander in the night, he stumbleth, for light is not in him.

11 He said these things [These things he saith], and after these things he saith to them, Lazarus, our friend, sleepeth, but I go to raise him from sleep.

12 Therefore his disciples said, Lord, if he sleepeth, he shall be safe. [Therefore his disciples said, Lord, if he sleep, he shall be safe.]

13 But Jesus had said of his death; but they guessed, that he said of [the] sleeping of sleep.

14 Then therefore Jesus said to them openly, Lazarus is dead;

15 and I have joy for you, that ye believe, for I was not there; but go we to him.

16 Therefore Thomas, that is said Didymus, said to even-disciples, Go we also, that we die with him.

17 And so Jesus came, and found him having then four days in the grave. [And so Jesus came, and found him having now four days in the grave.]

18 And Bethany was beside Jerusalem, as it were fifteen furlongs.

19 And many of the Jews came to Mary and Martha, to comfort them of their brother.

20 Therefore as Martha heard, that Jesus came, she ran to him; but Mary sat at home.

21 Therefore Martha said to Jesus, Lord, if thou haddest been here, my brother had not be dead.

22 But now I know, that whatever things thou shalt ask of God, God shall give to thee.

23 Jesus saith to her, Thy brother shall rise again.

24 Martha saith to him, I know, that he shall rise again in the again-rising in the last day.

25 Jesus saith to her, I am again-rising and life; he that believeth in me, yea, though he be dead, he shall live;

26 and each that liveth, and believeth in me, shall not die without end[a]. Believest thou this thing?

27 She saith to him, Yea, Lord, I have believed, that thou art Christ, the Son of the living God, that hast come into this world.

28 And when she had said this thing, she went, and called Mary, her sister, in silence, and said [she went, and called Mary, her sister, in silence, or stillness, saying], The master is come, and calleth thee.

29 She, as she heard, arose at once [rose anon], and came to him.

30 And Jesus came not yet into the castle, but he was yet in that place, where Martha had come to meet him.

31 Therefore the Jews that were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose swiftly, and went out, they followed her, and said [when they saw Mary, for soon she rose, and went out, followed her, saying], For she goeth to the grave, to weep there.

32 But when Mary was come where Jesus was, she seeing him felled down to his feet [seeing him fell down to this feet], and said to him, Lord, if thou haddest been here, my brother had not be dead.

33 Therefore when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews weeping that were with her, he made noise in spirit, and troubled himself,

34 and said, Where have ye laid him? They said to him, Lord, come, and see.

35 And Jesus wept.

36 Therefore the Jews said, Lo! how he loved him.

37 And some of them said, Whether this man that opened the eyes of the born-blind man [Whether this man that opened the eyes of the born-blind], might not make that this should not die?

38 Therefore Jesus again making noise in himself, came to the grave. And there was a den, and a stone was laid thereon.

39 And Jesus saith, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith to him, Lord, he stinketh now, for he hath lain four days.[b]

40 Jesus saith to her, Have I not said to thee, that if thou believest [for if thou shalt believe], thou shalt see the glory of God?

41 Therefore they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I do thankings to thee, for thou hast heard me;

42 and I knew, that thou evermore hearest me [forsooth, I knew, for thou ever hearest me], but for the people that standeth about, I said, that they believe, that thou hast sent me.

43 When he had said these things, he cried with a great voice, Lazarus, come forth.

44 And at once he that was dead, came out, bound the hands and feet with bonds, and his face bound with a sudarium. And Jesus saith to them, Unbind ye him, and suffer ye him to go forth. [And anon, he that was dead, came forth, bound the hands and feet with bonds, and his face was bound with a sudarium, or sweating cloth. Jesus saith to them, Unbind ye him, and suffer ye him for to go away.]

45 Therefore many of the Jews that came to Mary and Martha, and saw what things Jesus did, believed in him.

46 But some of them went to the Pharisees, and said to them, what things Jesus had done.

47 Therefore the bishops and the Pharisees gathered a council against Jesus, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles [for this man doeth many signs, or miracles].

48 If we leave him thus, all men shall believe in him; and Romans shall come, and shall take our place and our folk [and Romans shall come, and take our place and folk].

49 But one of them, Caiaphas by name, when he was bishop of that year, said to them, Ye know nothing,

50 nor think, that it speedeth to you, that one man die for the people, and that all the folk perish not.

51 But [Forsooth] he said not this thing of himself, but when he was bishop of that year, he prophesied, that Jesus was to die for the folk,

52 and not only for the folk, but that he should gather into one the sons of God that were scattered.

53 Therefore from that day they thought for to slay him.

54 Therefore Jesus walked not then openly among the Jews [Therefore Jesus walked not now openly at the Jews]; but he went into a country beside [the] desert, into a city, that is said Ephraim, and there he dwelled with his disciples [and there he dwelt with his disciples].

55 And the pask of the Jews was nigh, and many of the country went up to Jerusalem before the pask, to hallow themselves.

56 Therefore they sought Jesus, and spake together, standing in the temple, What guess ye, for he cometh not to the feast day?

57 For the bishops and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that if any man know where he is, that he show [that if any man knew where he is, he show], that they take him.

John 11 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Christ raises Lazarus from death. The high priests and Pharisees gather a council against him. He gets himself out of the way.

11 A certain man was sick, named Lazarus of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. It was that Mary who anointed Jesus with oyntment and wiped his feet with her hair whose brother Lazarus was sick. And his sisters sent to him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom you love is sick.

When Jesus heard that, he said, This infirmity is not unto death, but for the laud of God, so that the Son of God may be praised by reason of it.

Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. Then, after he had heard that he was sick, he remained still two days in the same place where he was.

Then after that he said to his disciples, Let us go into Judea again. His disciples said to him, Master, lately the Jews tried to stone you, and will you go there again? Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If a man walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. 10 But if a man walks in the night, he stumbles, because there is no light in him.

11 This he said, and after that he said to them, Our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I go to wake him out of sleep. 12 Then his disciples said, Lord, if he sleeps, he will do well enough. 13 However, Jesus was speaking of his death. But they thought that he had spoken of the natural sleep. 14 Then Jesus said to them plainly, Lazarus is dead. 15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.

16 Then Thomas who is called Didymus said to the disciples, Let us also go, so that we may die with him.

17 Then Jesus went, and found that Lazarus had lain in his grave four days already. 18 Bethany was near Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off, 19 and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to comfort them over their brother. 20 Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him, but Mary sat still in the house.

21 Then Martha said to Jesus, Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not be dead. 22 But nevertheless, 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 at the last day.

25 Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes on me, yea though he be dead, yet shall he live. 26 And whoever lives and believes on me, shall never die. Do you believe this?

27 She said to him, Yes, Lord. I believe that you are Christ, the Son of God who was to come into the world.

28 And as soon as she had so said, she went her way and called Mary her sister quietly, saying, The Teacher has come and is calling for you. 29 And Mary, as soon as she heard that, arose quickly and went to him.

30 Jesus had not yet come into the town, but was in the place where Martha met him. 31 Then the Jews that were with Mary in the house and comforting her, when they saw that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She is going to the grave, to weep there.

32 Then when Mary arrived where Jesus was and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying to him, Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not be dead.

33 When Jesus saw her weep, and the Jews who came with her also weep, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled in himself, 34 and said, Where have you laid him? They said to him, Lord, come and see. 35 And Jesus wept. 36 Then the Jews said, See how he loved him! 37 And some of them said, Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind, have made also that this man should not have died? 38 Jesus again groaned in himself, and came to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay against it. 39 And Jesus said, Take away the stone.

Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to him, Lord, by this time he will smell, for he has been dead four days. 40 Jesus said to her, Did I not say to you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?

41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes and said, Father, I thank you, because you have heard me. 42 I know that you hear me always. But because of the people that stand by, I said this – so 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 wrapped hand and foot with grave bonds, and his face was bound about with a headcloth.

Jesus said to them, Loose him and let him go.

45 Then many of the Jews who had come to Mary and seen the things that Jesus did, believed on him. 46 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done.

47 Then the high priests and the Pharisees gathered a council and said, What should we do? This man does many miracles. 48 If we let him go on this way, everyone will believe on him, and the Romans will come and take away our country and the people.

49 And one of them named Caiaphas, who was the high priest that same year, said to them, You perceive nothing at all, 50 nor yet consider that it is better for us that one man die for the people, and not that all the people perish. 51 This he spoke not of himself, but, being high priest that same year, he prophesied that Jesus would die for the people – 52 and not for the people only, but that he would gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

53 From that day forth they took counsel together about how to put him to death. 54 Jesus therefore no longer walked openly among the Jews, but went his way from there to a region near to a wilderness, into a village called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.

55 And the Jews’ Passover was at hand, and many people went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves. 56 Then they sought for Jesus, and spoke between themselves as they stood in the temple: What do you think, seeing he is not coming to the feast? 57 The high priests and Pharisees had given a commandment that if anyone knew where he was, they should report it, so that they might seize him.

John 11 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

11 1 Christ, to show that he is, 25 the life and the resurrection, 14 cometh to Lazarus being dead,  17, 34 and buried, 43 and raiseth him up. 47 As the Priests were consulting together, 49 Caiaphas 50 prophecieth that one must die for the people. 56, 57 They command to seek Christ out, and to take him.

And [a]a certain man was sick, named Lazarus of Bethany, the [b]town of Mary, and her sister Martha.

(And it was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.)

Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest, is sick.

When Jesus heard it, he said, This sickness is not unto [c]death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.

¶ Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister, and Lazarus.

[d]And after he had heard that he was sick, yet abode he two days still in the same place where he was.

Then after that, said he to his disciples, Let us go into Judea again.

[e]The disciples said unto him, Master, the Jews lately sought to stone thee, and dost thou go thither again?

Jesus answered, Are there not [f]twelve hours in the day? If a man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.

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

11 These things spake he, and after, he said unto them, Our friend Lazarus [g]sleepeth: but I go to wake him up.

12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall be safe.

13 Howbeit, Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of the natural sleep.

14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

15 And I am glad for your sakes, that I was not there, that ye may believe: but let us go unto him.

16 Then said Thomas (which is called Didymus) unto his fellow disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.

17 ¶ Then came Jesus, and found that he had lain in the grave four days already.

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

19 [h]And many of the Jews were come to Martha and Mary to comfort them for their brother.

20 Then Martha, when she heard that Jesus was coming, went to meet him: but Mary sat still in the house.

21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not been dead.

22 But now I know also, that whatsoever thou askest of God, God will give it thee.

23 Jesus said unto her, Thy brother shall [i]rise again.

24 Martha said unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

25 Jesus 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 thou this?

27 She said unto him, Yea, Lord, I believe that thou art that Christ that Son of God, which should come into the world.

28 ¶ And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.

29 And when she heard it, she arose quickly, and came unto him.

30 For Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in the place where Martha met him.

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

32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not been dead.

33 [j]When Jesus therefore saw her weep, and the Jews also weep which came with her, he [k]groaned in the spirit, and was troubled in himself,

34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.

35 And Jesus wept.

36 Then said the Jews, behold, how he loved him.

37 And some of them said, Could not he which opened the eyes of the blind, have made also, that this man should not have died?

38 Jesus therefore again groaned in himself, and came to the grave. And it was a cave, and a stone was laid upon it.

39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha the sister of him that was dead, said unto him, Lord, he stinketh already for he hath been dead four days.

40 Jesus said unto her, Said I not unto thee, that if thou didst believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee, because thou hast heard me.

42 I know that thou hearest me always, but because of the people that stand by, I said it, that they may believe, that thou hast sent me.

43 As he had spoken these things, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

44 Then he that was dead, came forth, bound hand and foot with bands, and his face was bound with a napkin. Jesus said unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

45 ¶ Then many of the Jews, which came to Mary, and had seen the things, which Jesus did, believed in him.

46 [l]But some of them went their way to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.

47 Then gathered the high Priests, and the Pharisees a [m]council, and said, What shall we do? For this man doeth many miracles.

48 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe in him, and the Romans will come and [n]take away both our place, and the nation.

49 [o]Then one of them named Caiaphas, which was the high Priest that same year, said unto them, Ye perceive nothing at all,

50 Nor yet do you consider that it is expedient for us, that one man die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.

51 [p]This spake he not of himself: but being high Priest that same year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation:

52 And not for that nation only, but that he should gather together in one the children of God, which [q]were scattered.

53 Then from that day forth they consulted together, to put him to death.

54 [r]Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews, 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’ Passover was at hand, and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the Passover, to purify themselves.

56 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the Temple, What think ye, that he cometh not to the feast?

57 Now both the high Priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that if any man knew where he were, he should show it, that they might take him.

John 11 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

11 Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.) Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick. When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.

Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judæa again. His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again? Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. 10 But if a man walk 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, if he sleep, he shall do well. 13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. 14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead. 15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him. 16 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.

17 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already. 18 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off: 19 and many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother. 20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house. 21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. 22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee. 23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. 24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 25 Jesus 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 thou this? 27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee. 29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him. 30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him. 31 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.

32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. 33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, 34 and said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see. 35 Jesus wept. 36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him! 37 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?

38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. 39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days. 40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? 41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. 42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast 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. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him. 46 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.

47 Then gathered the chief priests 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 that same year, said unto them, Ye 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 perish not. 51 And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus 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 that were scattered abroad. 53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death. 54 Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; 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’ passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves. 56 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast? 57 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.
