32When Mary came where Jesus was and saw him, she knelt at his feet and said to him, Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 33When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her also weeping, he was greatly disturbed in spirit and deeply moved. 34He said, Where have you laid him? They said to him, Lord, come and see. 35Jesus began to weep. 36So the Jews said, See how he loved him! 37But some of them said, Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?
38 Then Jesus, again greatly disturbed, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone was lying against it. 39Jesus said, Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of the dead man, said to him, Lord, already there is a stench because he has been dead for four days. 40Jesus said to her, Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God? 41So they took away the stone. And Jesus looked upwards and said, Father, I thank you for having heard me. 42I knew that you always hear me, but I have said this for the sake of the crowd standing here, so that they may believe that you sent me. 43When he had said this, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come out! 44The dead man came out, his hands and feet bound with strips of cloth, and his face wrapped in a cloth. Jesus said to them, Unbind him, and let him go.
