Jesus said to her, e "Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see f the glory of God?"

h I knew that you always hear me, but I said this i on account of the people standing around, j that they may believe that you sent me."

k The man who had died came out, l his hands and feet bound with linen strips, and m his face wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Unbind him, and let him go."
