12:10 But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;
10 But the High Priests consulted together to put Lazarus to death also,

39 For this reason they were not able to believe—for again Isaiah said,

12:48 He that rejects me, and receives not my words, (o. rhema) has one that judges him: the word (o. logos) that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
48 The person who disregards me, and does not receive my teachings is not left without a judge: the words of truth I have spoken will judge him (or her) on the last day;
12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

50 And I know that HIS command is Life eternal. Therefore what I speak, I speak just as the Father has instructed me."
