12:1 Then Jesus, six days before the passover, came to Bethany,
where Lazarus was who had been dead, whom he raised from the
12:2 There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but
Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.
12:3 Then Mary took a pound of ointment of spikenard, very
costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with
her hair: and the house was filled with the odor of the
12:4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's
[son], who was to betray him,
12:5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and
given to the poor?
12:6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because
he was a thief, and had the bag, and bore what was put in it.
12:7 Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my
burial hath she kept this.
12:8 For the poor ye have always with you; but me ye have not
12:9 Many people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there:
and they came, not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might
see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.
12:10 But the chief priests consulted that they might put
Lazarus also to death;
12:11 Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away,
and believed on Jesus.
12:12 On the next day, many people that had come to the feast,
when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
12:13 Took branches of palm-trees, and went forth to meet him,
and cried, Hosanna; Blessed [is] the King of Israel that cometh
in the name of the Lord.
12:14 And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as
it is written,
12:15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh,
sitting on an ass's colt.
12:16 These things his disciples understood not at the first:
but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these
things were written concerning him, and [that] they had done
these things to him.
12:17 The people therefore that were with him when he called
Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bore
12:18 For this cause the people also met him, for that they
heard that he had done this miracle.
12:19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye
how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.
12:20 And there were certain Greeks among them, that came to
worship at the feast.
12:21 The same came therefore to Philip, who was of Bethsaida of
Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.
12:22 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again, Andrew and
Philip tell Jesus.
12:23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that
the Son of man should be glorified.
12:24 Verily, verily, I say to you, Except a corn of wheat fall
into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it
bringeth forth much fruit.
12:25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth
his life in this world, shall keep it to life eternal.
12:26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am,
there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will
[my] Father honor.
12:27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father,
save me from this hour: but for this cause I came to this hour.
12:28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from
heaven, [saying], I have both glorified [it], and will glorify
12:29 The people therefore that stood by, and heard [it], said
that it thundered. Others said, An angel spoke to him.
12:30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of
me, but for your sakes.
12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of
this world be cast out.
12:32 And I, if I shall be lifted up from the earth, will draw
all [men] to me.
12:33 (This he said, signifying what death he should die.)
12:34 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that
Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man
must be lifted up? Who is this Son of man?
12:35 Then Jesus said to them, Yet a little while is the light
with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon
you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he
12:36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be
the children of light. These things spoke Jesus, and departed,
and concealed himself from them.
12:37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet
they believed not on him:
12:38 That the saying of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled,
which he spoke, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom
hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
12:39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Isaiah said
12:40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that
they should not see with [their] eyes, nor understand with
[their] heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
12:41 These things said Isaiah, when he saw his glory, and spoke
12:42 Nevertheless, among the chief rulers also many believed on
him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess [him],
lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
12:43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of
12:44 Jesus cried, and said, He that believeth on me, believeth
not on me, but on him that sent me:
12:45 And he that seeth me, seeth him that sent me:
12:46 I am come a light into the world, that whoever believeth
on me should not abide in darkness.
12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him
not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one
that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall
judge him in the last day.
12:49 For I have not spoken from myself; but the Father who sent
me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I
12:50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting:
whatever I speak therefore, even as the Father said to me, so I
