1 Jesus, therefore, six days before the passover, came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus raised from the dead. 2 They, therefore, made Him a supper there; and Martha was serving; but Lazarus was one of those reclining at table with Him. 3 Mary, therefore, having taken a pound of ointment of pure spikenard, very costly, anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment.
4 But Judas Iscariot, one of His disciples, who was about to betray Him, says, 5 "Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred denaries, and given to the poor?" 6 And he said this, not because he cared about the poor; but because he was a thief; and, having the money-box, he was wont to carry what was put therein.
7 Jesus, therefore, said, "Suffer her to keep it for the day of My burial; 8 for the poor ye always have with you, but Me ye have not always."
9 The great multitude, therefore, of the Jews knew that He was there; and they came, not because of Jesus only, but that they might see Lazarus, whom He raised from the dead. 10 But the high priests consulted, that they might slay Lazarus also; 11 because, on his account, many of the Jews were going away, and were believing on Jesus.
12 On the morrow a great multitude that had come to the feast, having heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13 took the branches of the palm trees, and went forth to meet Him, and cried, "Hosanna! blessed is He Who is coming in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!"
14 And Jesus, having found a young ass, sat upon it; as it has been written, 15 "Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your King is coming upon an ass colt."
16 These things His disciples did not understand at the first; but, when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written about Him, and that they did these things to Him. 17 The multitude, therefore, that was with Him when He called Lazarus out of the tomb, and raised him from the dead, was bearing testimony. 18 On this account also, the multitude met Him, because they heard that He had done this sign.
19 The Pharisees, therefore, said among themselves, "Ye see that ye are effecting nothing! Behold, the world went away after Him!"
20 And there were some Greeks among those who came up to worship at the feast. 21 These, therefore, came to Philip??ho was from Bethsaida of Galilee??nd were asking Him, saying, "Sir, we wish to see Jesus."
22 Philip comes and tells Andrew; Andrew and Philip come and tell Jesus. 23 And Jesus answereth them, saying, "The hour has come, that the Son of Man should be glorified.
24 Verily, verily, I say to you, unless the grain of wheat, having fallen into the ground, dies, it abides alone; but, if it dies, it bears much fruit, 25 He who loves his soul loses it; and he who hates his soul in this world will keep it unto life eternal. 26 If any one serve Me, let him follow Me; and where I am there will also My servant be. If anyone serve Me, him will My Father honor.
27 Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save Me from this hour. But for this cause came I to this hour. 28 Father, glorify Thy Name!" There came, therefore, a voice out of Heaven, "I both glorified it, and will glorify it again."
29 The multitude, therefore, who stood by and heard it, said that it had thundered; others said, "An angel has spoken to Him."
30 Jesus answered and said, "This voice has not come for My sake, but for your sakes. 31 Now is the judgment of this world: now will the Prince of this world be cast out; 32 and I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself." 33 But this He said, signifying by what manner of death He was about to die.
34 The multitude, therefore, answered Him, "We have heard out of the law that the Christ abideth forever; and how sayest Thou that the Son of Man must be lifted up? Who is This Son of Man?"
35 Jesus, therefore, said to them, "Yet a little while is the Light among you. Walk while ye have the Light, lest darkness overtake you; and he that walks in the darkness knows not where he is going. 36 While ye have the Light, believe on the Light, that ye may become sons of Light" These things spake Jesus, and, going away, He was hidden from them.
37 But, though He had done so many signs before them, they were not believing on Him; 38 that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which He spake, "Lord, who believed our report, and to whom was the arm of the Lord revealed?"
39 On this account they could not believe, because Isaiah said again,
40 "He hath blinded their eyes, and He hardened their heart, lest they should see with their eyes, and understand with their heart, and turn, and I should heal them."
41 These things Isaiah said, because he saw His glory; and he spake of Him.
42 Yet, however, even from among the rulers, many believed on Him; but, because of the Pharisees, they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; 43 for they loved the glory of men, rather than the glory of God.
44 And Jesus cried, and said, "He who believes on Me, believes not on Me, but on Him Who sent Me; 45 and he that beholds Me, beholds Him Who sent Me. 46 I have come a light into the world, that every one who believes on Me may not abide in the darkness. 47 And, if any one hears My words, and keeps them not, I do not judge him; for I came, not to judge the world, but to save the world. 48 He who rejects Me, and receives not My words, has one that judges him: the word that I spake, the same shall judge him in the last day. 49 For I spake not from Myself; but the Father, Who sent Me, Himself hath given Me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. 50 And I know that His commandment is life eternal. What things, therefore, I speak, even as My Father hath told Me, so I speak."
