said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst 22 been here, my brother had not died. But I
know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask 23 of God, God will give it thee. Jesus saith unto 24 her, “Thy brother shall rise again.” Martha
saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again 25 in the resurrection at the last day. Jesus said
unto her, “I am the resurrection, and the life: Col. 3. 4. “ c he that believeth in me, though he were 1, 2 & 3
& 5. 26“ dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth 11. " and believeth in me shall never die. Believest

I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of 28 God, which should come into the world. And
when she had so said, she went her way, and
called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The 29 Master is come, and calleth for thee. As soon
as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came 30 unto him. Now Jesus was not yet come into
the town, but was in that place where Martha 31 met him. The Jews then which were with her
in the house, and comforted her, when they saw
followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave 32 to weep there. Then when Mary was come
where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down
at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst 33 been here, my brother had not died. When
Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews
also weeping which came with her, he groaned 34 in the spirit, and was troubled, and said, “Where
“ have ye laid him?" They said unto him, Lord, 35, 36 come and see. Jesus wept. Then said the Jews,

And I knew that thou hearest 42 “ me always: but because of the people which “ stand by I said it, that they may believe that “ thou hast sent me.” And when he thus had 43 spoken, he cried with a loud voice, “ Lazarus,
come forth.” And he that was dead came 44 forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes : and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, “Loose him, and let

Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, 45 and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him. But some of them went their 46
ways to the Pharisees, and told them what * Ps. 2. 2. things Jesus had done. Then gathered the 47
chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and *Acts 4.16. said, e What do we? for this man doeth many
miracles. If we let him thus alone, all men will 48 believe on him : and the Romans shall come
and take away both our place and nation. And 49 Acts 4.6. one of them, named ' Caiaphas, being the high
priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, nor consider that it is expedient 50 for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. And this 51

And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judæa be

The Pharisees also came unto him, 'tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man 4 to put away his wife for every cause? And he answered and said unto them, “Have ye not “ read, a that he which made them at the begin- Gen.1.27. 5“ ning made them male and female, and said, 6 b For this cause shall a man leave father and "Gen.2.24. “mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and Eph 5.31.
