John 12

Whiston(i) 1 Jesus, therefore six days before the Passover, came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had been dead, whom Jesus raised from the dead. 2 And they made him a supper, and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. 3 Then Mary takes a pound of ointment, of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. 4 One of his disciples therefore Judas Scarioth who was to betray him, saith, 5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred denarii, and given to the poor? 6 But he said this, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and having the bag, he bare what was put therein. 7 Jesus therefore said, Let her alone; that she may keep [it] for the day of my burial. 8 -- 9 But many therefore of the multitude of the Jews heard that he was there: and they came, not for Jesus sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead. 10 But the chief priests consulted, that they might put Lazarus also to death; 11 Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus. 12 On the next day many of the multitude that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13 Took branches of palm trees and went forth to meet him, and cried aloud, saying, Hosanna, blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord, the King of Israel. 14 But Jesus when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written. 15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold thy King cometh, sitting on an asses colt. 16 These things his disciples minded not at the first: But when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written of him, and they had done these things unto him. 17 The multitude therefore that were with him bear record that he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead. 18 For this cause the multitude also met him, for that they heard that he had done this sign. 19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the whole world is gone after him. 20 But there were certain Greeks also among them, that came up to worship at the feast: 21 They came therefore to Philip, who was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus. 22 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: Again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus. 23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. 24 Verily verily I say unto you, Except a grain of wheat falling into the ground die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 25 He that loveth his life, shall lose it: and he that hateth his life in this world, shall keep it unto life eternal. 26 If any serve me, let him follow me, and wheresover I am, these shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will the Father honour. 27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour? but for this cause came I unto this hour. 28 Father, glorifie thy name with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. And a voice came from heaven saying, I have both glorified [it], and will glorifie [it] again. 29 The multitude therefore that stood heard it and said it was thunder: others said, that An Angel spake to him. 30 Jesus answered, and said, This voice came, not because of me, but for your sakes. 31 Now is the judgment of the world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. 32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all things unto me. 33 But he said this signifing what death he should die. 34 The multitude answered him, We have heard out of the law, that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, that The Son of man must be lift up? Who is therefore this Son of man? 35 Jesus therefore said unto them, Yet a little while is the light among you: walk therefore while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. 36 While ye have the light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them. 37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, they believed not on him: 38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed? 39 Therefore they could not believe, because Esaias said, 40 He hath blinded [them], that they should not see with [their] eyes, nor understand with [their] heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. 41 But these things said Esaias, when he saw the glory of God there, and spake of him. 42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also, 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 praise of men more than the praise of God. 44 Jesus therefore cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. 45 He that seeth me, seeth him that sent me. 46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me, should not abide in darkness. 47 And if any one hear my words, and keep them not, I judge him not: for I came not that I might judge the world, but that I might save the world. 48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. 49 For I have not spoken of my self; but the Father who sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. 50 And I know that his commandment is life eternal: what therefore I speak, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
