John 11:1-16 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.

John 11:1-16 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.

John 11:1-16 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.

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.
