Christ raises Lazarus to life. The rulers resolve to put him to death.
1 Now there was a certain man sick, named Lazarus, of Bethania, of the town of Mary and Martha her sister.
Erat autem quidem languens Lazarus a Bethania, de castello Mariae et Marthae sororis ejus.
2 (And Mary was she that anointed the Lord with ointment, and wiped his feet with her hair: whose brother Lazarus was sick.)
( Maria autem erat quae unxit Dominum unguento, et extersit pedes ejus capillis suis : cujus frater Lazarus infirmabatur.)
3 His sisters therefore sent to him, saying: Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.
Miserunt ergo sorores ejus ad eum dicentes : Domine, ecce quem amas infirmatur.
4 And Jesus hearing it, said to them: This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God: that the Son of God may be glorified by it.
Audiens autem Jesus dixit eis : Infirmitas haec non est ad mortem, sed pro gloria Dei, ut glorificetur Filius Dei per eam.
5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister Mary, and Lazarus.
Diligebat autem Jesus Martham, et sororem ejus Mariam, et Lazarum.
6 When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he still remained in the same place two days.
Ut ergo audivit quia infirmabatur, tunc quidem mansit in eodem loco duobus diebus;
7 Then after that, he said to his disciples: Let us go into Judea again.
deinde post haec dixit discipulis suis : Eamus in Judaeam iterum.
8 The disciples say to him: Rabbi, the Jews but now sought to stone thee: and goest thou thither again?
Dicunt ei discipuli : Rabbi, nunc quaerebant te Judaei lapidare, et iterum vadis illuc?
9 Jesus answered: Are there not twelve hours of the day? If a man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world:
Respondit Jesus : Nonne duodecim sunt horae diei? Si quis ambulaverit in die, non offendit, quia lucem hujus mundi videt :
10 But if he walk in the night, he stumbleth, because the light is not in him.
si autem ambulaverit in nocte, offendit, quia lux non est in eo.
11 These things he said; and after that he said to them: Lazarus our friend sleepeth; but I go that I may awake him out of sleep.
Haec ait, et post haec dixit eis : Lazarus amicus noster dormit : sed vado ut a somno excitem eum.
12 His disciples therefore said: Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.
Dixerunt ergo discipuli ejus : Domine, si dormit, salvus erit.
13 But Jesus spoke of his death; and they thought that he spoke of the repose of sleep.
Dixerat autem Jesus de morte ejus : illi autem putaverunt quia de dormitione somni diceret.
14 Then therefore Jesus said to them plainly: Lazarus is dead.
Tunc ergo Jesus dixit eis manifeste : Lazarus mortuus est :
15 And I am glad, for your sakes, that I was not there, that you may believe: but let us go to him.
et gaudeo propter vos, ut credatis, quoniam non eram ibi, sed eamus ad eum.
16 Thomas therefore, who is called Didymus, said to his fellow disciples: Let us also go, that we may die with him.
Dixit ergo Thomas, qui dicitur Didymus, ad condiscipulos : Eamus et nos, ut moriamur cum eo.
17 Jesus therefore came, and found that he had been four days already in the grave.
Venit itaque Jesus : et invenit eum quatuor dies jam in monumento habentem.
18 (Now Bethania was near Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off.)
( Erat autem Bethania juxta Jerosolymam quasi stadiis quindecim.)
19 And many of the Jews were come to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.
Multi autem ex Judaeis venerant ad Martham et Mariam, ut consolarentur eas de fratre suo.
20 Martha therefore, as soon as she heard that Jesus had come, went to meet him: but Mary sat at home.
Martha ergo ut audivit quia Jesus venit, occurrit illi : Maria autem domi sedebat.
21 Martha therefore said to Jesus: Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
Dixit ergo Martha ad Jesum : Domine, si fuisses hic, frater meus non fuisset mortuus :
22 But now also I know that whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.
sed et nunc scio quia quaecumque poposceris a Deo, dabit tibi Deus.
23 Jesus saith to her: Thy brother shall rise again.
Dicit illi Jesus : Resurget frater tuus.
24 Martha saith to him: I know that he shall rise again, in the resurrection at the last day.
Dicit ei Martha : Scio quia resurget in resurrectione in novissimo die.
25 Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, although he be dead, shall live:
Dixit ei Jesus : Ego sum resurrectio et vita : qui credit in me, etiam si mortuus fuerit, vivet :
26 And every one that liveth, and believeth in me, shall not die for ever. Believest thou this?
et omnis qui vivit et credit in me, non morietur in aeternum. Credis hoc?
27 She saith to him: Yea, Lord, I have believed that thou art Christ the Son of the living God, who art come into this world.
Ait illi : Utique Domine, ego credidi quia tu es Christus, Filius Dei vivi, qui in hunc mundum venisti.
28 And when she had said these things, she went, and called her sister Mary secretly, saying: The master is come, and calleth for thee.
Et cum haec dixisset, abiit, et vocavit Mariam sororem suam silentio, dicens : Magister adest, et vocat te.
29 She, as soon as she heard this, riseth quickly, and cometh to him.
Illa ut audivit, surgit cito, et venit ad eum;
30 For Jesus was not yet come into the town: but he was still in that place where Martha had met him.
nondum enim venerat Jesus in castellum : sed erat adhuc in illo loco, ubi occurrerat ei Martha.
31 The Jews therefore, who were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary that she rose up speedily and went out, followed her, saying: She goeth to the grave to weep there.
Judaei ergo, qui erant cum ea in domo, et consolabantur eam, cum vidissent Mariam quia cito surrexit, et exiit, secuti sunt eam dicentes : Quia vadit ad monumentum, ut ploret ibi.
32 When Mary therefore was come where Jesus was, seeing him, she fell down at his feet, and saith to him: Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
Maria ergo, cum venisset ubi erat Jesus, videns eum, cecidit ad pedes ejus, et dicit ei : Domine, si fuisses hic, non esset mortuus frater meus.
33 Jesus, therefore, when he saw her weeping, and the Jews that were come with her, weeping, groaned in the spirit, and troubled himself,
Jesus ergo, ut vidit eam plorantem, et Judaeos, qui venerant cum ea, plorantes, infremuit spiritu, et turbavit seipsum,
34 And said: Where have you laid him? They say to him: Lord, come and see.
et dixit : Ubi posuistis eum? Dicunt ei : Domine, veni, et vide.
35 And Jesus wept.
Et lacrimatus est Jesus.
36 The Jews therefore said: Behold how he loved him.
Dixerunt ergo Judaei : Ecce quomodo amabat eum.
37 But some of them said: Could not he that opened the eyes of the man born blind, have caused that this man should not die?
Quidam autem ex ipsis dixerunt : Non poterat hic, qui aperuit oculos caeci nati, facere ut hic non moreretur?
38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself, cometh to the sepulchre. Now it was a cave; and a stone was laid over it.
Jesus ergo rursum fremens in semetipso, venit ad monumentum. Erat autem spelunca, et lapis superpositus erat ei.
39 Jesus saith: Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith to him: Lord, by this time he stinketh, for he is now of four days.
Ait Jesus : Tollite lapidem. Dicit ei Martha, soror ejus qui mortuus fuerat : Domine, jam foetet, quatriduanus est enim.
40 Jesus saith to her: Did not I say to thee, that if thou believe, thou shalt see the glory of God?
Dicit ei Jesus : Nonne dixi tibi quoniam si credideris, videbis gloriam Dei?
41 They took therefore the stone away. And Jesus lifting up his eyes said: Father, I give thee thanks that thou hast heard me.
Tulerunt ergo lapidem : Jesus autem, elevatis sursum oculis, dixit : Pater, gratias ago tibi quoniam audisti me.
42 And I knew that thou hearest me always; but because of the people who stand about have I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.
Ego autem sciebam quia semper me audis, sed propter populum qui circumstat, dixi : ut credant quia tu me misisti.
43 When he had said these things, he cried with a loud voice: Lazarus, come forth.
Haec cum dixisset, voce magna clamavit : Lazare, veni foras.
44 And presently he that had been dead came forth, bound feet and hands with winding bands; and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus said to them: Loose him, and let him go.
Et statim prodiit qui fuerat mortuus, ligatus pedes, et manus institis, et facies illius sudario erat ligata. Dixit eis Jesus : Solvite eum et sinite abire.
45 Many therefore of the Jews, who were come to Mary and Martha, and had seen the things that Jesus did, believed in him.
Multi ergo ex Judaeis, qui venerant ad Mariam, et Martham, et viderant quae fecit Jesus, crediderunt in eum.
46 But some of them went to the Pharisees, and told them the things that Jesus had done.
Quidam autem ex ipsis abierunt ad pharisaeos, et dixerunt eis quae fecit Jesus.
47 The chief priests therefore, and the Pharisees, gathered a council, and said: What do we, for this man doth many miracles?
Collegerunt ergo pontifices et pharisaei concilium, et dicebant : Quid faciamus, quia hic homo multa signa facit?
48 If we let him alone so, all will believe in him; and the Romans will come, and take away our place and nation.
Si dimittimus eum sic, omnes credent in eum, et venient Romani, et tollent nostrum locum, et gentem.
49 But one of them, named Caiphas, being the high priest that year, said to them: You know nothing.
Unus autem ex ipsis, Caiphas nomine, cum esset pontifex anni illius, dixit eis : Vos nescitis quidquam,
50 Neither do you consider that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
nec cogitatis quia expedit vobis ut unus moriatur homo pro populo, et non tota gens pereat.
51 And this he spoke not of himself: but being the high priest of that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for the nation.
Hoc autem a semetipso non dixit : sed cum esset pontifex anni illius, prophetavit, quod Jesus moriturus erat pro gente,
52 And not only for the nation, but to gather together in one the children of God, that were dispersed.
et non tantum pro gente, sed ut filios Dei, qui erant dispersi, congregaret in unum.
53 From that day therefore they devised to put him to death.
Ab illo ergo die cogitaverunt ut interficerent eum.
54 Wherefore Jesus walked no more openly among the Jews; but he went into a country near the desert, unto a city that is called Ephrem, and there he abode with his disciples.
Jesus ergo jam non in palam ambulabat apud Judaeos, sed abiit in regionem juxta desertum, in civitatem quae dicitur Ephrem, et ibi morabatur cum discipulis suis.
55 And the pasch of the Jews was at hand; and many from the country went up to Jerusalem, before the pasch to purify themselves.
Proximum autem erat Pascha Judaeorum, et ascenderunt multi Jerosolymam de regione ante Pascha, ut sanctificarent seipsos.
56 They sought therefore for Jesus; and they discoursed one with another, standing in the temple: What think you that he is not come to the festival day? And the chief priests and Pharisees had given a commandment, that if any man knew where he was, he should tell, that they might apprehend him.
Quaerebant ergo Jesum, et colloquebantur ad invicem, in templo stantes : Quid putatis, quia non venit ad diem festum? Dederant autem pontifices et pharisaei mandatum ut si quis cognoverit ubi sit, indicet, ut apprehendant eum.
