John 11:17-37 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

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?

John 11:17-37 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

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?

John 11:17-37 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

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 [a]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 [b]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 [c]When Jesus therefore saw her weep, and the Jews also weep which came with her, he [d]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?

John 11:17-37 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

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?
