11:8 [His] disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?
11:8 The disciples said to Him, "Rabbi, lately the Jews sought to stone You, and are You going there again?"

11:9 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.
11:9 Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.

11:22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give [it] thee.
11:22 "But even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You."

11:23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

11:24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
11:24 Martha said to Him, "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day."

11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
11:25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.

11:26 "And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?"

11:27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.
11:27 She said to Him, "Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world."

11:31 Then the Jews who were with her in the house, and comforting her, when they saw that Mary rose up quickly and went out, followed her, saying, "She is going to the tomb to weep there."

11:36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!

11:37 And some of them said, "Could not this Man, who opened the eyes of the blind, also have kept this man from dying?"

11:39 Jesus said, "Take away the stone." Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to Him, "Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been dead four days."

11:40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
11:40 Jesus said to her, "Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?"

11:49 And one of them, Caiaphas, being high priest that year, said to them, "You know nothing at all,

11:50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
11:50 "nor do you consider that it is expedient for us that one man should die for the people, and not that the whole nation should perish."

11:51 Now this he did not say on his own authority; but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation,
