John 12
1Then Yeshua [God is Salvation] six days before the Passover came to Beit-Anyah [house of figs], where El’azar [whom God helps] was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
2There they made him a supper; and Marta [she was rebellious] served: but El’azar [whom God helps] was one of them that sat at the table with him.
3Then took Miryam [waters of strength] a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Yeshua [God is Salvation], and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
4Then says one of his disciples, Y’hudah [praised] From K’riot [cities], Shim’on [he has heard]’s [son], which should betray him,
5Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
6This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bore what was put in it.
7Then said Yeshua [God is Salvation], Let her alone: against the day of my burying has she kept this.
8For the poor always you2f have with you; but me you2f have not always.
9Much people of the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah] therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Yeshua [God is Salvation]’ sake only, but that they might see El’azar [whom God helps] also, whom he had raised from the dead.
10But the chief priests consulted that they might put El’azar [whom God helps] also to death;
11Because that by reason of him many of the Y’hudim (Judeans) [praised of Yah] went away, and believed on Yeshua [God is Salvation].
12On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Yeshua [God is Salvation] was coming to Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace],
13Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) [is] the King of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heal Of God] that comes in the name of the Lord - Kurios.
14And Yeshua [God is Salvation], when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,
15Fear not, daughter of Tziyon [a parched place] [Lofty]: behold, youri King comes, sitting on an ass’s colt.
16These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Yeshua [God is Salvation] was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and [that] they had done these things unto him.
17The people therefore that was with him when he called El’azar [whom God helps] out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bore record.
18For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.
19The P’rushim (Pharisees) [separatists] therefore said among themselves, Perceive you2f how you2f prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.
20And there were certain Greeks [unstable: miry ones] among them that came up to worship at the feast:
21The same came therefore to Philip [friend of horses], which was of Beit-Tzaidah [house of fish] of Galil [circuit, district], and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Yeshua [God is Salvation].
22Philip [friend of horses] comes and tells Andrew [of a man]: and again Andrew [of a man] and Philip [friend of horses] tell Yeshua [God is Salvation].
23And Yeshua [God is Salvation] answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of Man should be glorified.
24Truly, truly, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone: but if it die, it brings forth much fruit.
25He that loves his life shall lose it; and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
26If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my slave be: if any man serve me, him will [my] Father honour.
27Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
28Father, glorify youri name. Then came there a voice from heaven, [saying], I have both glorified [it], and will glorify [it] again.
29The people therefore, that stood by, and heard [it], said that it thundered: others said, An angel spoke to him.
30Yeshua [God is Salvation] answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.
31Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
32And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all [men] unto me.
33This he said, signifying what death he should die.
34The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Moshiach [Messiah] abides forever: and how say youi, The Son of Man must be lifted up? who is this Son of Man?
35Then Yeshua [God is Salvation] said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while you2f have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walks in darkness knows not to which he goes.
36While you2f have light, believe in the light, that you2f may be the children of light. These things spoke Yeshua [God is Salvation], and departed, and did hide himself from them.
37But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
38That the saying of Yesha’yahu [Yah is salvation] the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke, Lord - Kurios, who has believed our report? and to whom has the arm of the Lord - Kurios been revealed?
39Therefore they could not believe, because that Yesha’yahu [Yah is salvation] said again,
40He has blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with [their] eyes, nor understand with [their] heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
41These things said Yesha’yahu [Yah is salvation], when he saw his glory, and spoke of him.
42Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the P’rushim (Pharisees) [separatists] they did not confess [him], lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
43For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God-The Father.
44Yeshua [God is Salvation] cried and said, He that believes on me, believes not on me, but on him that sent me.
45And he that sees me sees him that sent me.
46I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believes on me should not abide in darkness.
47And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
48He that rejects me, and receives not my words, has one that him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
49For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
50And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
