Jesus Raises Lazarus From the Dead
38 Jesus, once more deeply moved,f came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance.g 39 “Take away the stone,” he said.
“But, Lord,” said Martha, the sister of the dead man, “by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days.”h
40 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe,i you will see the glory of God?”j
41 So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked upk and said, “Father,l I thank you that you have heard me. 42 I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here,m that they may believe that you sent me.”n
43 When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!”o 44 The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen,p and a cloth around his face.q
Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go.”
