1 Now a certain man was sick , named Lazarus, of Bethany , the town of Mary and her sister Martha. 2 (It was that Mary which anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick .) 3 Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying , Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick . 4 When Jesus heard that, he said , This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby . 5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. 6 When he had heard therefore that he was sick , he abode two days still in the same place where he was . 7 Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again. 8 His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again? 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. 10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth , because there is no light in him. 11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth ; but I go , that I may awake him out of sleep . 12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep , he shall do well . 13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. 14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead . 15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe ; nevertheless let us go unto him. 16 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go , that we may die with him. 17 Then when Jesus came , he found that he had lain in the grave four days already. 18 Now Bethany was nigh unto

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.
