John 11
1Now a certain [man] was sick, [named] El’azar [whom God helps], of Beit-Anyah [house of figs], the town of Miryam [waters of strength] and her sister Marta [she was rebellious].
2(It was [that] Miryam [waters of strength] which anointed the Lord - Kurios with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother El’azar [whom God helps] was sick.)
3Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord - Kurios, behold, he whom youi love is sick.
4When Yeshua [God is Salvation] heard [that], he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God-The Father, that the Son of God-The Father might be glorified thereby.
5Now Yeshua [God is Salvation] loved Marta [she was rebellious], and her sister, and El’azar [whom God helps].
6When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.
7Then after that says he to [his] disciples, Let us go into Y’hudah [praised] again.
8 [His] disciples say unto him, Master, the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah] of late sought to stone youi; and go youi there again?
9Yeshua [God is Salvation] answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbles not, because he sees the light of this world.
10But if a man walk in the night, he stumbles, because there is no light in him.
11These things said he: and after that he says unto them, Our friend El’azar [whom God helps] sleeps; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
12Then said his disciples, Lord - Kurios, if he sleep, he shall do well.
13However Yeshua [God is Salvation] spoke of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
14Then said Yeshua [God is Salvation] unto them plainly, El’azar [whom God helps] is dead.
15And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent you2f may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.
16Then said T’oma [twin], which is called Didymus [two-fold], unto his fellow disciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.
17Then when Yeshua [God is Salvation] came, he found that he had [lain] in the grave four days already.
18Now Beit-Anyah [house of figs] was near unto Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], about fifteen furlongs off:
19And many of the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah] came to Marta [she was rebellious] and Miryam [waters of strength], to comfort them concerning their brother.
20Then Marta [she was rebellious], as soon as she heard that Yeshua [God is Salvation] was coming, went and met him: but Miryam [waters of strength] sat [still] in the house.
21Then said Marta [she was rebellious] unto Yeshua [God is Salvation], Lord - Kurios, if youi had been here, my brother had not died.
22But I know, that even now, whatsoever youi will ask of God-The Father, God-The Father will give [it] youi.
23Yeshua [God is Salvation] says unto her, You1s brother shall rise again.
24Marta [she was rebellious] says unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
25Yeshua [God is Salvation] said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
26And whosoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Believe youi this?
27She says unto him, Yes, Lord - Kurios: I believe that youi are the Moshiach [Messiah], the Son of God-The Father, which should come into the world.
28And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Miryam [waters of strength] her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calls for youi.
29As soon as she heard [that], she arose quickly, and came unto him.
30Now Yeshua [God is Salvation] was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Marta [she was rebellious] met him.
31The Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah] then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Miryam [waters of strength], that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goes unto the grave to weep there.
32Then when Miryam [waters of strength] was come where Yeshua [God is Salvation] was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord - Kurios, if youi had been here, my brother had not died.
33When Yeshua [God is Salvation] therefore saw her weeping, and the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah] also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the Spirit [Ruach], and was troubled,
34And said, Where have you2f laid him? They said unto him, Lord - Kurios, come and see.
35Yeshua [God is Salvation] wept.
36Then said the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah], Behold how he loved him!
37And 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?
38Yeshua [God is Salvation] therefore again groaning in himself comes to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.
39Yeshua [God is Salvation] said, Take you2f away the stone. Marta [she was rebellious], the sister of him that was dead, says unto him, Lord - Kurios, by this time he stinks: for he has been [dead] four days.
40Yeshua [God is Salvation] says unto her, Said I not unto youi, that, if youi would believe, youi should see the glory of God-The Father?
41Then they took away the stone [from the place] where the dead was laid. And Yeshua [God is Salvation] lifted up [his] eyes, and said, Father, I thank youi that youi have heard me.
42And I knew that youi hear me always: but because of the people which stand by I said [it], that they may believe that youi have sent me.
43And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, El’azar [whom God helps], come forth.
44And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Yeshua [God is Salvation] says unto them, Loose him, and let him go.
45Then many of the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah] which came to Miryam [waters of strength], and had seen the things which Yeshua [God is Salvation] did, believed on him.
46But some of them went their ways to the P’rushim (Pharisee [separatist]s) [separatists], and told them what things Yeshua [God is Salvation] had done.
47Then gathered the chief priests and the P’rushim (Pharisees) [separatists] a council, and said, What do we? for this man does many miracles.
48If we let him thus alone, all [men] will believe on him: and the Romans [strength] shall come and take away both our place and nation.
49And one of them, [named] Kayafa [depression], being the High Priest that same year, said unto them, You2f know nothing at all,
50Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
51And this spoke he not of himself: but being High Priest that year, he prophesied that Yeshua [God is Salvation] should die for that nation;
52And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God-The Father that were scattered abroad.
53Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.
54Yeshua [God is Salvation] therefore walked no more openly among the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah]; but went there unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Efrayim [Doubly Fruitful], and there continued with his disciples.
55And the Y’hudit (Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah]) Passover was near at hand: and many went out of the country up to Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] before the Passover, to purify themselves.
56Then sought they for Yeshua [God is Salvation], and spoke among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think you2f, that he will not come to the feast?
57Now both the chief priests and the P’rushim (Pharisees) [separatists] had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should show [it], that they might take him.
