John 12

Thomson(i) 1 Jesus therefore, six days before the passover, went to Bethany were Lazarus was, who had been dead, and whom he had raised from the dead. 2 And a supper was made for him there; and Martha waited, and Lazarus was one of them who were at table with him. 3 Mary then having taken a pound of the balsam of spikenard, unadulterated, very costly, anointed the feet of Jesus when she had wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the odour of the balsam. 4 Upon which one of the disciples, namely Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, who was about to deliver him up, 5 said, Why was not this balsam sold for three hundred deniars, and given to the poor?" 6 Now this he said, not because he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief and had the purse and carried off what was put into it. 7 Therefore Jesus said, Let her alone. She hath kept this for the day of preparing my body for burial, 8 for you have the poor always with you; but me you have not always. 9 Now a great number of the Jews knew that he was there, and had come, not on the account of Jesus only; but to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead; 10 the chief priests therefore determined to put Lazarus also to death, 11 because on his account many of the Jews withdrew and believed in Jesus. 12 On the next day a great multitude who had come to the festival, hearing that Jesus is coming to Jerusalem, 13 took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, and cried, Hosanna! Blessed he, who is coming in the name of the Lord! The king of Israel! 14 Now Jesus having found a young ass, was riding thereon, agreeably to what is written, 15 "Fear not, daughter, of Sion! behold thy king cometh mounted on an ass's colt." 16 These things his disciples did not understand at the time; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written concerning him; and that they had done them for him. 17 Now because the multitude who were with him testified that he had called Lazarus from the tomb, and raised him, from the dead; 18 and on this account the multitude met him, because they heard that he had done this miracle, 19 therefore the Pharisees said among themselves, You see that you gain no advantage. Behold the world is gone after him. 20 Now among them who came up to worship at the festival, there were some Greeks. 21 These therefore came to Philip, who was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying, Sir, We wish to see Jesus. 22 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew. And Andrew and Philip tell Jesus. 23 Whereupon Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come that the Son of man should be glorified. 24 Verily, verily I say to you, If the grain of wheat which falleth on the ground dieth not, it remaineth a single grain. But if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 25 He who loveth his life, will lose it: but he who slighteth his life in this world, shall keep it for an everlasting life. 26 If any one would wait upon me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall this attendant of mine also be. And if any one wait upon me my Father will reward him. 27 Now is my soul troubled. What then? Shall I say, Father save me from this hour? But for this cause I came to this hour. 28 Father, glorify thy name. Thereupon a voice came from heaven, "I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again." 29 The multitude therefore who were standing by, when they heard it, said, it thundered. Others said, An angel hath spoken to him, 30 Jesus answered and said, This voice hath not come for my sake, but for yours. 31 Now is the judgment of this world. Now will the chieftain of this world be cast out. 32 As for me, when I am lifted up from the ground, I will draw all men to me. 33 [Now this he said, signifying the death he should soon die.] 34 The multitude answered him, We have heard out of the law that "The Christ remaineth forever." How then dost thou say, 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 the light is with you. Walk while you have the light that the darkness may not overtake you; for he who walketh in darkness knoweth not where he is going. 36 while you have the light, believe in the light, that you may be children of light. Having said this, Jesus withdrew, and was concealed from them. 37 Now though he had performed so many miracles before them, they did not believe in him, 38 so that the word of the prophet Esaias was confirmed, which he spoke, Lord who hath believed our report, and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed? 39 It was because they were not enabled to believe that in another place Esaias said, 40 He hath blinded their eyes, and stupified their hearts, so that they saw not with their eyes, nor understood with their heart, nor turned that I might heal them. 41 This Esaias said when he saw his glory and spake concerning him. 42 Nevertheless when several of the chief's believed in him, but on account of the Pharisees did not acknowledge it, that they might not be excommunicated, 43 [for they loved the praise of men, more than the praise of God] 44 therefore Jesus raised his voice and said, He who believeth in me, believeth not merely in me, but in him who sent me. 45 And he who beholdeth me, beholdeth him who sent me. 46 I being light am come into the world, that whoever believeth in me may not remain in darkness. 47 Now if any one hear my words and believe not; it is not I who condemn him; for I did not come to condemn the world, but to save the world. 48 He who slighteth me and receiveth not my words, hath that which condemneth him; the word which I have spoken, that will condemn him at the last day. 49 Because I have not spoken from myself, but the father who sent me hath himself given me a command what I should enjoin, and what I should speak, 50 and I know that his commandment is everlasting life, therefore what I speak, I speak just as the father directed me.
