38 Then when Joshua came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.
39 Now Bethany
was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off:
many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their
41 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Joshua
was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.
42 Then said
Martha unto Joshua, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
43 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.
44 Joshua saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
45 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
46 Joshua said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
47 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? She
saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.
48 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.
49 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.
50 Now Joshua
was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him.
51 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.
when Mary was come where Joshua was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet,
saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
53 When Joshua therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled,
said, Where have ye laid him?
They said unto him, Lord, come and see.
55 Joshua wept.
56 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!
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?
