John 11:45-57 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

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 11:45-57 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

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 11:45-57 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

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

46 [a]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 [b]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 [c]take away both our place, and the nation.

49 [d]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 [e]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 [f]were scattered.

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

54 [g]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.
