John 12 (WEBP)

[1] Then, six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, who had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
[2] So they made him a supper there. Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with him.
[3] Therefore Mary took a pound of ointment of pure nard, very precious, and anointed Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the ointment.
[4] Then Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, one of his disciples, who would betray him, said,
[5] “Why wasn’t this ointment sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?”
[6] Now he said this, not because he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and having the money box, used to steal what was put into it.
[7] But Jesus said, “Leave her alone. She has kept this for the day of my burial.
[8] For you always have the poor with you, but you don’t always have me.”
[9] A large crowd therefore of the Jews learned 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 conspired to put Lazarus to death also,
[11] because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus.
[12] On the next day a great multitude had come to the feast. When they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
[13] they took the branches of the palm trees and went out to meet him, and cried out, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, the King of Israel!”
[14] Jesus, having found a young donkey, sat on it. As it is written,
[15] “Don’t be afraid, daughter of Zion. Behold, your King comes, sitting on a donkey’s colt.”
[16] His disciples didn’t understand these things at first, but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written about him, and that they had done 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 testifying about it.
[18] For this cause also the multitude went and met him, because they heard that he had done this sign.
[19] The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, “See how you accomplish nothing. Behold, the world has gone after him.”
[20] Now there were certain Greeks among those who went up to worship at the feast.
[21] Therefore, these came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying, “Sir, we want to see Jesus.”
[22] Philip came and told Andrew, and in turn, Andrew came with Philip, and they told Jesus.
[23] Jesus answered them, “The time has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.
[24] Most certainly I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains by itself alone. But if it dies, it bears much fruit.
[25] He who loves his life will lose it. He who hates his life in this world will keep it to eternal life.
[26] If anyone serves me, let him follow me. Where I am, there my servant will also be. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.
[27] “Now my soul is troubled. What shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this time’? But I came to this time for this cause.
[28] Father, glorify your name!” Then a voice came out of the sky, saying, “I have both glorified it and will glorify it again.”
[29] Therefore the multitude who stood by and heard it said that it had thundered. Others said, “An angel has spoken to him.”
[30] Jesus answered, “This voice hasn’t come for my sake, but for your sakes.
[31] Now is the judgment of this world. Now the prince of this world will be cast out.
[32] And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”
[33] But he said this, signifying by what kind of death he should die.
[34] The multitude answered him, “We have heard out of the law that the Christ remains forever. How do you say, ‘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 darkness doesn’t overtake you. He who walks in the darkness doesn’t know where he is going.
[36] While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become children of light.” Jesus said these things, and he departed and hid himself from them.
[37] But though he had done so many signs before them, yet they didn’t believe in him,
[38] that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke: “Lord, who has believed our report? To whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?”
[39] For this cause they couldn’t believe, for Isaiah said again:
[40] “He has blinded their eyes and he hardened their heart, lest they should see with their eyes, and perceive with their heart, and would turn, and I would heal them.”
[41] Isaiah said these things when he saw his glory, and spoke of him.
[42] Nevertheless, even many of the rulers believed in him, but because of the Pharisees they didn’t confess it, so that they wouldn’t be put out of the synagogue,
[43] for they loved men’s praise more than God’s praise.
[44] Jesus cried out and said, “Whoever believes in me, believes not in me, but in him who sent me.
[45] He who sees me sees him who sent me.
[46] I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in me may not remain in the darkness.
[47] If anyone listens to my sayings and doesn’t believe, I don’t judge him. For I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
[48] He who rejects me, and doesn’t receive my sayings, has one who judges him. The word that I spoke will judge him in the last day.
[49] For I spoke not from myself, but the Father who sent me gave me a commandment, what I should say and what I should speak.
[50] I know that his commandment is eternal life. The things therefore which I speak, even as the Father has said to me, so I speak.”

[1] Then Jesus six days before the passover came () to Bethany , where Lazarus was () which had been dead (), whom he raised () from the dead .
[2] There they made () him a supper ; and Martha served (): but Lazarus was () one of them that sat at the table () with him .
[3] Then took () Mary 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] Then saith () one of his disciples , Judas Iscariot , Simon’s [son], which should () betray () him ,
[5] Why was not this ointment sold () for three hundred pence , and given () to the poor ?
[6] This he said (), not that he cared () for the poor ; but because he was () a thief , and had () the bag , and bare () what was put therein ().
[7] Then said () Jesus , Let her alone (): against the day of my burying hath she kept () this .
[8] For the poor always ye have () with you ; but me ye have () not always .
[9] Much people of the Jews therefore knew () 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 much people 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 (), Hosanna : Blessed () [is] the King of Israel that cometh () in the name of the Lord .
[14] And 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 ass’s colt .
[16] These things understood () not his disciples at the first : but when Jesus was glorified (), then remembered they () that these things were () written () of him , and [that] they had done () these things unto him .
[17] The people therefore that was () with him when he called () Lazarus out of his grave , and raised () him from the dead , bare record ().
[18] For this cause the people also met () him , for that they heard () that he had done () this miracle .
[19] The Pharisees therefore said () among themselves , Perceive ye () () how ye prevail () nothing ? behold , the world is gone () after him .
[20] And there were () certain Greeks among them that came up () to worship () at the feast :
[21] The same came () therefore to Philip , which was of Bethsaida of Galilee , and desired () him , saying (), Sir , we would () see () Jesus .
[22] Philip cometh () and telleth () Andrew : and 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 corn of wheat fall () into the ground and 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 man serve () me , let him follow () me ; and where I am (), there shall also my servant be (): if any man serve () me , him will [my] 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 , glorify () thy name . Then came there () a voice from heaven , [saying], I have both glorified () [it], and will glorify () [it] again .
[29] The people therefore , that stood by (), and heard () [it], said () that it thundered () : others said (), 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 this 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 [men] unto me .
[33] This he said (), signifying () what death he should () die ().
[34] The people answered () him , We have heard () out of the law that Christ abideth () for ever : and how sayest () thou , The Son of man must () be lifted up ()? who is () this Son of man ?
[35] Then Jesus said () unto them , Yet a little while is () the light with you . Walk () 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 () 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 , yet 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 that Esaias said () again ,
[40] He hath blinded () their eyes , and hardened () their heart ; that they should not see () with [their] eyes , nor understand () with [their] heart , and be converted (), and I should heal () them .
[41] These things said () Esaias , when he saw () his glory , 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 cried () and said (), He that believeth () on me , believeth () not on me , but on him that sent () me .
[45] And he that seeth
