11:9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbles not, because he sees the light of this world.   9 "Are there not twelve hours in the day?" replied Jesus. "If you walk in the daytime, you do not stumble, because you see the light of this world.  
11:10 But if a man walk in the night, he stumbles, because there is no light in him.   10 But if you walk by night, you stumble, because you have no light."

11:19 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.   19 and many Judeans were among the mourners having come to express sympathy on the death of the brother of Martha and Mary.  
11:20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.   20 Martha, then, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went to meet Him, leaving Mary still seated in the house.  
11:21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if you had been here, my brother had not died.   21 So, Martha spoke to Jesus. "Master, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.  
11:22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever you will ask of God, God will give it you.   22 But even now I know that whatever you ask from God, HE will give you."  
11:23 Jesus says unto her, Your brother shall rise again.   23 "Your brother shall arise," replied Jesus.  
11:24 Martha says unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.   24 "I know," said Martha, "that he will be raised up in the resurrection on the last day."  
11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:   25 "I am the Resurrection and the Life," said Jesus; "the one who believes in me, even if he (or she) has died, shall live;  
11:26 And whosoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Believe you this?   26 And everyone who is living and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?" (17:3)
11:27 She says unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.   27 "Yes, Master," she replied; "I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the One coming into the world." GR.Cristos AR.mәshīha

11:28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master has come, and calls for you.   28 After saying this, she went to her sister Mary in private, telling her, "The Teacher is here and is asking for you."  
11:29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.   29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly to go to Him.  
11:30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him.   30 Now Jesus was not yet in the village, but was still at the place where Martha met Him.  
11:31 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goes unto the grave to weep there.   31 So the Judeans who were comforting Mary in the house, when they saw that she rose hastily and went out, followed her, thinking she was going to the sepulchre to weep there.  
11:32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if you had been here, my brother had not died.   32 Then, Mary when she came to Jesus and saw Him, fell at His feet and cried, "Master, if you had been here, my brother would not have died."  
11:33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, (o. pneuma) and was troubled.   33 Seeing her weeping, and the Judeans also weeping who had come with her, Jesus, with a deeply troubled spirit,  
11:34 And said, Where have all of you laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.   34 asked them, "Where have you laid him?" "Master, come and see," was their reply.  
11:35 Jesus wept.

  35 Jesus wept. (5:40)
11:36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!   36 "See how dear He held him as a friend," said the Judeans.  
11:37 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?   37 But some of them asked, "Could the One opening the eyes of the blind also be able to prevent this man from dying?"  
11:38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself comes to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.   38 Jesus, however, again deeply moved, came to the sepulchre, simply a cave sealed at the mouth with a stone.  
11:39 Jesus said, Take all of you away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, says unto him, Lord, by this time he stinks: for he has been dead four days. Fourth-day man
τεταρταιος (5066)
39 "Take away the stone," said Jesus. Martha, the sister of the deceased, exclaimed, "Master, by this time there is an awful odor; for he has been dead four days."  
11:40 Jesus says unto her, Said I not unto you, that, if you would believe, you should see the glory of God?   40 "Did I not say," replied Jesus, "that if you believe, you shall see the glory of God?"  
11:41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank you that you have heard me.   41 So they removed the stone sealing the place of burial. Then Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, "Father, I give thanks that YOU have heard me.  
11:42 And I knew that you hear me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that you have sent me.   42 I know that YOU hear me at all times; but because of the crowd standing around I have said this—that they may believe that YOU sent me."  
11:43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.   43 After saying this, He called out in a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out."  
11:44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave clothes: and his face was bound about with a cloth. Jesus says unto them, Loose him, and let him go. with grave-bandages
κειριαις (2750)
44 The man who was dead came out, his hands and feet wrapped in bandages, and his face covered with a kerchief. "Unbind him," said Jesus, "and let him go."  
11:45 Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.   45 Then a number of those Judeans who had come to Mary and had witnessed His deeds became believers in Him;  
11:46 But some of them went their ways to the Pharisees, and told them what things Jesus had done.   46 Though some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what He had done.  
11:47 Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man does many miracles.   47 Then the High Priests and the Pharisees held a meeting of the Sanhedrin. "What do we do?" they asked, "for this man is performing many [miraculous] signs.  
11:48 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.   48 If we let Him alone, everybody will believe in Him, and the Romans will come and take away our place and our nation."

11:49 And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, All of you know nothing at all,   49 And a certain one of them, named Caiaphas, being High Priest that year, said, "You do not know anything:  
11:50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.   50 Nor have you come to the conclusion among yourselves that one man should die for the people rather than the whole nation be destroyed."  
11:51 And this spoke he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;   51 He did not say this entirely of himself: but being High Priest that year he declared in a prophetic manner that Jesus was to die for the nation,  
11:52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.   52 And not for the nation only, but in order to unite into one body all the children of God dispersed abroad. (3:17)
11:53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together in order to put him to death.   53 From that day forward they schemed to put Jesus to death.  
11:54 Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.   54 Therefore Jesus no longer went about Judea openly, but He left the area and went into the district near the desert, to the town of Ephraim, and remained there with the disciples.  
11:55 And the Jews' passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.   55 The time of the Judean Passover approached, and many from the country went up to Jerusalem to purify themselves before the Passover.  
11:56 Then sought they for Jesus, and spoke among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think all of you, that he will not come to the feast?   56 Therefore they looked for Jesus, and when in the Temple asked one another, "What do you think, He is not at the Festival, will He come?"  
11:57 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should show it, that they might take him.   57 For the High Priests and the Pharisees had issued orders that if anyone knew where He was, that person should provide such information, so that the authorities could arrest Him.
