11 Revised Standard Version Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

11 1Now a certain man was ill, Laz'arus of Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha.The Death of Lazarus Jn.11.1-16 (Bethany)Ἦν δέ τις ἀσθενῶν, Λάζαρος ἀπὸ Βηθανίας, ἐκ τῆς κώμης Μαρίας καὶ Μάρθας τῆς ἀδελφῆς αὐτῆς.
2It was Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Laz'arus was ill. ἦν δὲ Μαριὰμ ἡ ἀλείψασα τὸν κύριον μύρῳ καὶ ἐκμάξασα τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ ταῖς θριξὶν αὐτῆς, ἧς ὁ ἀδελφὸς Λάζαρος ἠσθένει.
3So the sisters sent to him, saying, "Lord, he whom you love is ill." ἀπέστειλαν οὖν αἱ ἀδελφαὶ πρὸς αὐτὸν λέγουσαι, Κύριε, ἰδε ὃν φιλεῖς ἀσθενεῖ.
4But when Jesus heard it he said, "This illness is not unto death; it is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified by means of it." ἀκούσας δὲ ὁ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν, Αὑτη ἡ ἀσθένεια οὐκ ἐστιν πρὸς θάνατον ἀλλ' ὑπὲρ τῆς δόξης τοῦ θεοῦ, ἵνα δοξασθῇ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ θεοῦ δῖ αὐτῆς.
5Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Laz'arus. ἠγάπα δὲ ὁ Ἰησοῦς τὴν Μάρθαν καὶ τὴν ἀδελφὴν αὐτῆς καὶ τὸν Λάζαρον.
6So when he heard that he was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was. ὡς οὖν ἠκουσεν ὅτι ἀσθενεῖ, τότε μὲν ἐμεινεν ἐν ᾧ ἦν τόπῳ δύο ἡμέρας·
7Then after this he said to the disciples, "Let us go into Judea again." ἐπειτα μετὰ τοῦτο λέγει τοῖς μαθηταῖς, Ἄγωμεν εἰς τὴν Ἰουδαίαν πάλιν.
8The disciples said to him, "Rabbi, the Jews were but now seeking to stone you, and are you going there again?" λέγουσιν αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταί, Ῥαββί, νῦν ἐζήτουν σε λιθάσαι οἱ Ἰουδαῖοι, καὶ πάλιν ὑπάγεις ἐκεῖ;
9Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. ἀπεκρίθη Ἰησοῦς, Οὐχὶ δώδεκα ὧραί εἰσιν τῆς ἡμέρας; ἐάν τις περιπατῇ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ, οὐ προσκόπτει, ὅτι τὸ φῶς τοῦ κόσμου τούτου βλέπει·
10But if any one walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him." ἐὰν δέ τις περιπατῇ ἐν τῇ νυκτί, προσκόπτει, ὅτι τὸ φῶς οὐκ ἐστιν ἐν αὐτῷ.
11Thus he spoke, and then he said to them, "Our friend Laz'arus has fallen asleep, but I go to awake him out of sleep." ταῦτα εἶπεν, καὶ μετὰ τοῦτο λέγει αὐτοῖς, Λάζαρος ὁ φίλος ἡμῶν κεκοίμηται, ἀλλὰ πορεύομαι ἵνα ἐξυπνίσω αὐτόν.
12The disciples said to him, "Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will recover." εἶπαν οὖν οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτῷ, Κύριε, εἰ κεκοίμηται σωθήσεται.
13Now Jesus had spoken of his death, but they thought that he meant taking rest in sleep. εἰρήκει δὲ ὁ Ἰησοῦς περὶ τοῦ θανάτου αὐτοῦ. ἐκεῖνοι δὲ ἐδοξαν ὅτι περὶ τῆς κοιμήσεως τοῦ ὑπνου λέγει.
14Then Jesus told them plainly, "Laz'arus is dead; τότε οὖν εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς παρρησίᾳ, Λάζαρος ἀπέθανεν,
15and for your sake I am glad that I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him." καὶ χαίρω δῖ ὑμᾶς, ἵνα πιστεύσητε, ὅτι οὐκ ἠμην ἐκεῖ· ἀλλὰ ἀγωμεν πρὸς αὐτόν.
16Thomas, called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, "Let us also go, that we may die with him." εἶπεν οὖν Θωμᾶς ὁ λεγόμενος Δίδυμος τοῖς συμμαθηταῖς, Ἄγωμεν καὶ ἡμεῖς ἵνα ἀποθάνωμεν μετ' αὐτοῦ.
