 New English Bible << John:12 >>Novum Testamentum Graece (UBS.Ed.26)  

1 SIX DAYS BEFORE the Passover festival Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus lived whom he had raised from the dead. The Anointing at Bethany Jn.12.1-8 (Bethany) - | Mt.26.6-13 | Mk.14.3-9Ὁ οὖν Ἰησοῦς πρὸ ἓξ ἡμερῶν τοῦ πάσχα ἦλθεν εἰς Βηθανίαν, ὁπου ἦν Λάζαρος, ὃν ἠγειρεν ἐκ νεκρῶν Ἰησοῦς.
2 There a supper was given in his honour, at which Martha served, and Lazarus sat among the guests with Jesus.  ἐποίησαν οὖν αὐτῷ δεῖπνον ἐκεῖ, καὶ ἡ Μάρθα διηκόνει, ὁ δὲ Λάζαρος εἷς ἦν ἐκ τῶν ἀνακειμένων σὺν αὐτῷ.
3 Then Mary brought a pound of very costly perfume, pure oil of nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped them with her hair, till the house was filled with the fragrance.  ἡ οὖν Μαριὰμ λαβοῦσα λίτραν μύρου νάρδου πιστικῆς πολυτίμου ἠλειψεν τοὺς πόδας τοῦ Ἰησοῦ καὶ ἐξέμαξεν ταῖς θριξὶν αὐτῆς τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ· ἡ δὲ οἰκία ἐπληρώθη ἐκ τῆς ὀ σμῆς τοῦ μύρου.
4 At this, Judas Iscariot, a disciple of his—the one who was to betray him—said,  λέγει δὲ Ἰούδας ὁ Ἰσκαριώτης εἷς [ἐκ] τῶν μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ, ὁ μέλλων αὐτὸν παραδιδόναι,
5 'Why was this perfume not sold for thirty pounds [Literally 300 denarii.] and given to the poor?'  Διὰ τί τοῦτο τὸ μύρον οὐκ ἐπράθη τριακοσίων δηναρίων καὶ ἐδόθη πτωχοῖς;
6 He said this, not out of any care for the poor, but because he was a thief; he used to pilfer the money put into the common purse, which was in his charge.  εἶπεν δὲ τοῦτο οὐχ ὅτι περὶ τῶν πτωχῶν ἐμελεν αὐτῷ ἀλλ' ὅτι κλέπτης ἦν καὶ τὸ γλωσσόκομον ἐχων τὰ βαλλόμενα ἐβάσταζεν.
7 'Leave her alone', said Jesus. 'Let her keep it till the day when a she prepares for my burial,  εἶπεν οὖν ὁ Ἰησοῦς, Ἄφες αὐτήν, ἵνα εἰς τὴν ἡμέραν τοῦ ἐνταφιασμοῦ μου τηρήσῃ αὐτό·
8 for you have the poor among you always, but you will not always have me.' [Some witnesses omit: for you have ... have me.]
 τοὺς πτωχοὺς γὰρ πάντοτε ἐχετε μεθ' ἑαυτῶν, ἐμὲ δὲ οὐ πάντοτε ἐχετε.
9 A great number of the Jews heard that he was there, and came not only to see Jesus but also Lazarus whom he had raised from the dead. The Plot against Lazarus Jn.12.9-11Ἔγνω οὖν [ὁ] ὀχλος πολὺς ἐκ τῶν Ἰουδαίων ὅτι ἐκεῖ ἐστιν, καὶ ἦλθον οὐ διὰ τὸν Ἰησοῦν μόνον ἀλλ' ἵνα καὶ τὸν Λάζαρον ἰδωσιν ὃν ἠγειρεν ἐκ νεκρῶν.
10 The chief priests then resolved to do away with Lazarus as well,  ἐβουλεύσαντο δὲ οἱ ἀρχιερεῖς ἵνα καὶ τὸν Λάζαρον ἀποκτείνωσιν,
11 since on his account many Jews were going over to Jesus and putting their faith in him.

 ὁτι πολλοὶ δῖ αὐτὸν ὑπῆγον τῶν Ἰουδαίων καὶ ἐπίστευον εἰς τὸν Ἰησοῦν.
12 THE NEXT DAY the great body of pilgrims who had come to the festival, hearing that Jesus was on the way to Jerusalem, The Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem Jn.12.12-19 (Jerusalem) - Passover, c.30ce | Mt.21.1-11 | Mk.11.1-11 | Lk.19.28-38Τῇ ἐπαύριον ὁ ὀχλος πολὺς ὁ ἐλθὼν εἰς τὴν ἑορτήν, ἀκούσαντες ὅτι ἐρχεται ὁ Ἰησοῦς εἰς Ἱεροσόλυμα,
13 took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, 'Hosanna! Blessings on him who comes in the name of the Lord! God bless the king of Israel!' - Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes Jn.12.13 | Ps.118.25-26 | Zch.9.9ἐλαβον τὰ βαΐα τῶν Φοινίκων καὶ ἐξῆλθον εἰς ὑπάντησιν αὐτῷ, καὶ ἐκραύγαζον,

Ὡσαννά·
εὐλογημένος ὁ ἐρχόμενος ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου,

[καὶ] ὁ βασιλεὺς τοῦ ἰσραήλ.

14 Jesus found a donkey and mounted it, in accordance with the text of Scripture:  εὑρὼν δὲ ὁ Ἰησοῦς ὀνάριον ἐκάθισεν ἐπ' αὐτό, καθώς ἐστιν γεγραμμένον,
15 'Fear no more, daughter of Zion; see, your king is coming, mounted on an ass's colt.'
 Μὴ φοβοῦ, θυγάτηρ Σιών·
ἰδοὺ ὁ βασιλεύς σου ἔρχεται,
καθήμενος ἐπὶ πῶλον ὄνου.
16 At the time his disciples did not understand this, but after Jesus had been glorified they remembered that this had been written about him, and that this had happened to him.  ταῦτα οὐκ ἐγνωσαν αὐτοῦ οἱ μαθηταὶ τὸ πρῶτον, ἀλλ' ὅτε ἐδοξάσθη Ἰησοῦς τότε ἐμνήσθησαν ὅτι ταῦτα ἦν ἐπ' αὐτῷ γεγραμμένα καὶ ταῦτα ἐποίησαν αὐτῷ.
17 The people who were present when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead told what they had seen and heard.  ἐμαρΤύρει οὖν ὁ ὀχλος ὁ ὢν μετ' αὐτοῦ ὅτε τὸν Λάζαρον ἐφώνησεν ἐκ τοῦ μνημείου καὶ ἠγειρεν αὐτὸν ἐκ νεκρῶν.
18 That is why the crowd went to meet him; they had is heard of this sign that he had performed.  διὰ τοῦτο [καὶ] ὑπήντησεν αὐτῷ ὁ ὀχλος ὅτι ἠκουσαν τοῦτο αὐτὸν πεποιηκέναι τὸ σημεῖον.
19 The Pharisees said to one another, 'You see you are doing no good at all; why, all the world has gone after him.'
 οἱ οὖν Φαρισαῖοι εἶπαν πρὸς ἑαυτούς, Θεωρεῖτε ὅτι οὐκ ὠφελεῖτε οὐδέν· ἰδε ὁ κόσμος ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ ἀπῆλθεν.
20 AMONG THOSE who went up to worship at the festival were some Greeks. Some Greeks Seek Jesus Jn.12.20-26 (Olivet) - Ἦσαν δὲ Ἑλληνές τινες ἐκ τῶν ἀναβαινόντων ἵνα προσκυνήσωσιν ἐν τῇ ἑορτῇ·
21 They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and said to him, 'Sir, we should like to see Jesus.'  οὗτοι οὖν προσῆλθον Φιλίππῳ τῷ ἀπὸ Βηθσαϊδὰ τῆς Γαλιλαίας, καὶ ἠρώτων αὐτὸν λέγοντες, Κύριε, θέλομεν τὸν Ἰησοῦν ἰδεῖν.
22 So Philip went and told Andrew, and the two of them went to tell Jesus.  ἐρχεται ὁ Φίλιππος καὶ λέγει τῷ Ἀνδρέᾳ· ἐρχεται Ἀνδρέας καὶ Φίλιππος καὶ λέγουσιν τῷ Ἰησοῦ.
23 Then Jesus replied: 'The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.  ὁ δὲ Ἰησοῦς ἀποκρίνεται αὐτοῖς λέγων, Ἐλήλυθεν ἡ ὡρα ἵνα δοξασθῇ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου.
24 In truth, in very truth I tell you, a grain of wheat remains a solitary grain unless it falls into the ground and dies; but if it dies, it bears a rich harvest.  ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ἐὰν μὴ ὁ κόκκος τοῦ σίτου πεσὼν εἰς τὴν γῆν ἀποθάνῃ, αὐτὸς μόνος μένει· ἐὰν δὲ ἀποθάνῃ, πολὺν καρπὸν φέρει.
25 The man who loves himself is lost, but he who hates himself in this world will be kept safe for eternal life.  ὁ φιλῶν τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ ἀπολλύει αὐτήν, καὶ ὁ μισῶν τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ τούτῳ εἰς ζωὴν αἰώνιον φυλάξει αὐτήν.
26 If anyone serves me, he must follow me; where I am, my servant will be. Whoever serves me will be honoured by my Father.
 ἐὰν ἐμοί τις διακονῇ, ἐμοὶ ἀκολουθείτω, καὶ ὁπου εἰμὶ ἐγὼ ἐκεῖ καὶ ὁ διάκονος ὁ ἐμὸς ἐσται· ἐάν τις ἐμοὶ διακονῇ τιμήσει αὐτὸν ὁ πατήρ.
27 'Now my soul is in turmoil, and what am I to say? Father, save me from this hour. [Or: turmoil. Shall I say, 'Father, save me from this hour'?] No, it was for this that I came to this hour. The Son of Man Must be Lifted Up  Jn.12.27-36Νῦν ἡ ψυχή μου τετάρακται. καὶ τί εἰπὼ Πάτερ, σῶσόν με ἐκ τῆς ὡρας ταύτης; ἀλλὰ διὰ τοῦτο ἦλθον εἰς τὴν ὡραν ταύτην.
28 Father, glorify thy name.' A voice sounded from heaven: 'I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again.'  πάτερ, δόξασόν σου τὸ ὀνομα. ἦλθεν οὖν φωνὴ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, Καὶ ἐδόξασα καὶ πάλιν δοξάσω.
29 The crowd standing by said it was thunder, while others said, 'An angel has spoken to him.'  ὁ οὖν ὀχλος ὁ ἑστὼς καὶ ἀκούσας ἐλεγεν βροντὴν γεγονέναι· ἀλλοι ἐλεγον, Ἄγγελος αὐτῷ λελάληκεν.
30 Jesus replied, 'This voice spoke for your sake, not mine.  ἀπεκρίθη Ἰησοῦς καὶ εἶπεν, Οὐ δῖ ἐμὲ ἡ φωνὴ αὑτη γέγονεν ἀλλὰ δῖ ὑμᾶς.
31 Now is the hour of judgement for this world; now shall the Prince of this world be driven out.  νῦν κρίσις ἐστὶν τοῦ κόσμου τούτου, νῦν ὁ ἀρχων τοῦ κόσμου τούτου ἐκβληθήσεται ἐξω·
32 And I shall draw all men to myself, when I am lifted up from the earth.'  κἀγὼ ἐὰν ὑψωθῶ ἐκ τῆς γῆς, πάντας ἑλκύσω πρὸς ἐμαυτόν.
33 This he said to indicate the kind of death he was to die.
 τοῦτο δὲ ἐλεγεν σημαίνων ποίῳ θανάτῳ ἠμελλεν ἀποθνῄσκειν.
34 The people answered, 'Our Law teaches us that the Messiah continues for ever. What do you mean by saying that the Son of Man must be lifted up? What Son of Man is this?'  ἀπεκρίθη οὖν αὐτῷ ὁ ὀχλος, Ἡμεῖς ἠκούσαμεν ἐκ τοῦ νόμου ὅτι ὁ Χριστὸς μένει εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα, καὶ πῶς λέγεις σὺ ὅτι δεῖ ὑψωθῆναι τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ ἀνθρώποὺ τίς ἐστιν ο ὗτος ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου;
35 Jesus answered them; The light is among you still, but not for long. Go on your way while you have the light, so that darkness may not overtake you. He who journeys in the dark does not know where he is going.  εἶπεν οὖν αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς, Ἔτι μικρὸν χρόνον τὸ φῶς ἐν ὑμῖν ἐστιν. περιπατεῖτε ὡς τὸ φῶς ἐχετε, ἵνα μὴ σκοτία ὑμᾶς καταλάβῃ· καὶ ὁ περιπατῶν ἐν τῇ σκοτίᾳ οὐκ οἰ 'δεν ποῦ ὑπάγει.
36 While you have the light, trust to the light, so that you may become men of light.' After these words Jesus went away from them into hiding.
 ὡς τὸ φῶς ἐχετε, πιστεύετε εἰς τὸ φῶς, ἵνα υἱοὶ φωτὸς γένησθε.

Ταῦτα ἐλάλησεν Ἰησοῦς, καὶ ἀπελθὼν ἐκρύβη ἀπ' αὐτῶν.

37 IN SPITE OF the many signs which Jesus had performed in their presence they would not believe in him, The Unbelief of the Jews Jn.12.37-43Τοσαῦτα δὲ αὐτοῦ σημεῖα πεποιηκότος ἐμπροσθεν αὐτῶν οὐκ ἐπίστευον εἰς αὐτόν,
38 for the prophet Isaiah's utterance had to be fulfilled: 'Lord, who has believed what we reported, and to whom has the Lord's power been revealed?' - Lord, who has believed our report Jn.12.38 | Is.53.1ἵνα ὁ λόγος Ἠσαΐου τοῦ προφήτου πληρωθῇ ὃν εἶπεν,

Κύριε, τίς ἐπίστευσεν τῇ ἀκοῇ ἡμῶν;
καὶ ὁ βραχίων κυρίου τίνι ἀπεκαλύφθη;

39 So it was that they could not believe, for there is another saying of Isaiah's:  διὰ τοῦτο οὐκ ἠδύναντο πιστεύειν, ὅτι πάλιν εἶπεν Ἠσαΐας,
40 'He has blinded their eyes and dulled their minds, lest they should see with their eyes, and perceive with their minds, and turn to me to heal them.' - see with their eyes and perceive with their heart Jn.12.40 | Is.6.9-10Τετύφλωκεν αὐτῶν τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς
καὶ ἐπώρωσεν αὐτῶν τὴν καρδίαν,
ἵνα μὴ ἴδωσιν τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς
καὶ νοήσωσιν τῇ καρδίᾳ καὶ στραφῶσιν,
καὶ ἰάσομαι αὐτούς.
41 Isaiah said this because [Some witnesses read: when.] he saw his glory and spoke about him.
 ταῦτα εἶπεν Ἠσαΐας, ὅτι εἶδεν τὴν δόξαν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐλάλησεν περὶ αὐτοῦ.
42 For all that, even among those in authority a number believed in him, but would not acknowledge him on account of the Pharisees, for fear of being banned from the synagogue.  ὁμως μέντοι καὶ ἐκ τῶν ἀρχόντων πολλοὶ ἐπίστευσαν εἰς αὐτόν, ἀλλὰ διὰ τοὺς Φαρισαίους οὐχ ὡμολόγουν ἵνα μὴ ἀποσυνάγωγοι γένωνται·
43 For they valued their reputation with men rather than the honour which comes from God.
 ἠγάπησαν γὰρ τὴν δόξαν τῶν ἀνθρώπων μᾶλλον ἠπερ τὴν δόξαν τοῦ θεοῦ.
44 SO JESUS CRIED ALOUD: 'When a man believes in me, he believes in him who sent me rather than in me; Judgment by Jesus' Word Jn.12.44-50 (Olivet) - Ἰησοῦς δὲ ἐκραξεν καὶ εἶπεν, Ὁ πιστεύων εἰς ἐμὲ οὐ πιστεύει εἰς ἐμὲ ἀλλὰ εἰς τὸν πέμψαντά με,
45 seeing me, he sees him who sent me.  καὶ ὁ θεωρῶν ἐμὲ θεωρεῖ τὸν πέμψαντά με.
46 I have come into the world as light, so that no one who has faith in me should remain in darkness.  ἐγὼ φῶς εἰς τὸν κόσμον ἐλήλυθα, ἵνα πᾶς ὁ πιστεύων εἰς ἐμὲ ἐν τῇ σκοτίᾳ μὴ μείνῃ.
47 But if anyone hears my words and pays no regard to them, I am not his judge; I have not come to judge the world, but to save the world.  καὶ ἐάν τίς μου ἀκούσῃ τῶν ῥημάτων καὶ μὴ φυλάξῃ, ἐγὼ οὐ κρίνω αὐτόν, οὐ γὰρ ἦλθον ἵνα κρίνω τὸν κόσμον ἀλλ' ἵνα σώσω τὸν κόσμον.
48 There is a judge for the man who rejects me and does not accept my words; the word that I spoke will be his judge on the last day.  ὁ ἀθετῶν ἐμὲ καὶ μὴ λαμβάνων τὰ ῥήματά μου ἐχει τὸν κρίνοντα αὐτόν· ὁ λόγος ὃν ἐλάλησα ἐκεῖνος κρινεῖ αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ ἐσχάτῃ ἡμέρᾳ·
49 I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who sent me has himself commanded me what to say and how to speak.  ὁτι ἐγὼ ἐξ ἐμαυτοῦ οὐκ ἐλάλησα, ἀλλ' ὁ πέμψας με πατὴρ αὐτός μοι ἐντολὴν δέδωκεν τί εἰπω καὶ τί λαλήσω.
50 I know that his commands are eternal life. What the Father has said to me, therefore—that is what I speak.'
 καὶ οἶδα ὅτι ἡ ἐντολὴ αὐτοῦ ζωὴ αἰώνιός ἐστιν. ἂ οὖν ἐγὼ λαλῶ, καθὼς εἰρηκέν μοι ὁ πατήρ, οὑτως λαλῶ.
