John 11:21-45 (KJV)

[21] Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord,
if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

[22] But I know, that even now, whatsoever
thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

[23] Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

[24] Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall
rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

[25] Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection,
and the life: he that believeth in me,
though he were dead, yet shall he live:

[26] And whosoever liveth and believeth in me
shall never die. Believest thou this?

[27] She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe
that thou art the Christ, the Son of God,
which should come into the world.

[28] And when she had so said, she went
her way, and called Mary her sister secretly,
saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.

[29] As soon as she heard that,
she arose quickly, and came unto him.

[30] Now Jesus was not yet come into the town,
but was in that place where Martha met him.

[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 goeth unto the grave to weep there.

[32] Then when Mary was come where Jesus was,
and saw him, she fell down at his feet,
saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst
been here, my brother had not died.

[33] When Jesus therefore saw her weeping,
and the Jews also weeping which came
with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled.

[34] And said, Where have ye laid him?
They said unto him, Lord, come and see.

[35] Jesus wept.

[36] Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!

[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?

[38] Jesus therefore again groaning in himself
cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

[39] Jesus said, Take ye away the stone.
Martha, the sister of him that was dead,
saith unto him, Lord, by this time
he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.

[40] Jesus saith unto her, Said I not
unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe,
thou shouldest see the glory of God?

[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 thee that thou hast heard me.

[42] And I knew that thou hearest me always:
but because of the people which stand by
I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

[43] And when he thus had spoken, he
cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

[44] And he that was dead came forth, bound
hand and foot with graveclothes: and his
face was bound about with a napkin
. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

[45] Then many of the Jews which came to Mary,
and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.
