    John 11:11 These things said he: and after that he said to them, Our friend Lazarus sleeps; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.

    John 11:20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.
    John 11:21 Then said Martha to Jesus, Lord, if you had been here, my brother had not died.

    John 11:34 And said, Where have you laid him? They said to him, Lord, come and see.
    John 11:35 Jesus wept.
    John 11:36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!
    John 11:37 And 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?
    John 11:38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself comes to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay on it.
    John 11:39 Jesus said, Take you away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, said to him, Lord, by this time he stinks: for he has been dead four days.
    John 11:40 Jesus said to her, Said I not to you, that, if you would believe, you should see the glory of God?

    John 11:50 Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not.
    John 11:51 And this spoke he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation;
    John 11:52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.
