Jesus Raises Lazarus
Then Jesus, again groaning in Himself, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a u stone lay against it.
Jesus said, "Take away the stone." Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to Him, "Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been dead four days."
Jesus said to her, "Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would v see the glory of God?"
Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, "Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.
"And I know that You always hear Me, but w because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me."
Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth!"
And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with x graveclothes, and y his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Loose him, and let him go."

Jesus answered and said, "This voice did not come because of Me, but for your sake.
That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.
Then they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in strips of linen with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury.
