Chapter 12John

12

1:Jesus therefore six days before the passover came to Bethany, where :Lazarus was, whom Jesus raised from the dead. 2 They made him therefore a supper there: and :Martha served; but :Lazarus was one of them that sat at meat with him. 3 :Mariam therefore took a pound of ointment of pure nard, very precious, and anointed the feet of :Jesus, and wiped his :feet with her :hair: and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment. 4 But :Judas :Iscariot, one of his :disciples, that should deliver him up, saith, 5 Why was not this :ointment sold for three hundred shillings, and given to the poor? 6 Now this he said, not because he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and having the bag, was carrying its contents. 7 :Jesus therefore said, Suffer her to keep it against the day of my :burying. 8 For the poor ye have always with yourselves; but me ye have not always. 9 The great 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 raised from the dead. 10 But the chief priests took counsel to put :Lazarus also to death; 11 because by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed unto :Jesus.
 
12 On the morrow the great crowd that came to the feast, on hearing that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13 took the branches of the palm trees, and went out to meet him, and shouted, Hosanna:
Blessed who cometh in the Lord’s Name, Even the King of :Israel.
14 And :Jesus, having found a young ass, sat thereon; even as it is written,
15 Fear not, daughter of Zion:Lo, thy :King cometh,
Sitting on an ass’s colt.
16 These things understood not his :disciples at first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these were written of him, and that they had done these to him. 17 The crowd therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb, and raised him from the dead, witnessed. 18 For this cause also the crowd met him, because they heard that he had done this :sign. 19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Behold that ye prevail nothing. See, the world is gone after him.
 
20 Now certain Greeks were among those that went up to worship at the feast: 21 these therefore came to Philip, who was of Bethsaida of :Galilee, and asked him, saying, Sir, we would see :Jesus. 22 :Philip cometh and telleth :Andrew; Andrew cometh, and Philip, and they tell :Jesus. 23 And :Jesus answereth them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of :man should be glorified. 24 Amen, Amen, I say unto you, Except the grain of the wheat fall into the earth and die, it abideth by itself alone; but if it die, it beareth much fruit. 25 Who loveth his :soul loseth it; and who hateth his :soul in this :world shall guard it unto life eternal. 26 If any serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also :my :servant be: if any serve me, him will the Father honor. 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. A voice therefore came out of :heaven: I both have glorified, and will glorify it again. 29 The crowd therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it was thunder: 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 a judgment of this :world: now shall the prince of this :world be cast [out] outside. 32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all unto myself. 33 But this he said, signifying by what manner of death he should die. 34 The crowd therefore answered him, WE have heard out of the law that the Christ abideth forever: and how sayest THOU, that the Son of :man must be lifted up? Who is this :Son of :man? 35 :Jesus therefore said to them, Yet a little time is the light among you. Walk while ye have the light, that darkness apprehend you not: and who walketh in the darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. 36 While ye have the light, believe unto the light, that ye may become sons of light. These things spake Jesus, and he departed and was hidden from them. 37 But though he had done so many signs before them, yet they believed not unto him: 38 that the word of Isaiah the prophet be fulfilled, which he spake,
Lord, who hath believed our :report?
And to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
39 For this cause they could not believe, because Isaiah said again,
40 He hath blinded their :eyes, and hardened their :heart;Lest they see with their eyes, and understand at heart and turn, And I should heal them.
41 These things said Isaiah, because he saw his :glory; and he spake of him. 42 Nevertheless even of the rulers many believed unto him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: 43 for they loved the glory from :men more than the glory from :God. 44 And Jesus cried and said, Who believeth unto me, believeth not unto me, but unto him that sent me. 45 And who beholdeth me beholdeth him that sent me. 46 I am come a light into the world, that whoever believeth unto me remain not in the darkness. 47 And if any hear my :sayings, and guard them not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. 48 Who rejecteth me, and receiveth not my :sayings, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I spake, the same shall judge him in the last day. 49 Because I spake not from myself; but the Father that sent me, HE hath given me commandment, what I should say, and what I shall speak. 50 And I know that his :commandment is life eternal; what things therefore I speak, even as the Father hath said to me, thus I speak.
