John 11

11:1 Now there was a certain sick man, Lazarus of Bethania, from the town of Mary and her sister Martha.
11:2 And Mary was the one who anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair; her brother Lazarus was sick.
11:3 saka, his sisters sent to him, vachiti: "Ishe, tarira, he whom you love is sick.”
11:4 ndokubva, pamusoro vachinzwa izvi, Jesu akati kwavari: “This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified by it.”
11:5 Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister Mary, and Lazarus.
11:6 kunyange zvakadaro, after he heard that he was sick, he then still remained in the same place for two days.
11:7 ndokubva, pashure izvi, akati kuvadzidzi vake, “Let us go into Judea again.”
11:8 The disciples said to him: "Rabhi, the Jews are even now seeking to stone you. And would you go there again?"
11:9 Jesu akapindura: “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the daylight, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.
11:10 But if he walks in the nighttime, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.”
11:11 He said these things, uye pashure peizvi, akati kwavari: “Lazarus our friend is sleeping. But I am going, so that I may awaken him from sleep.”
11:12 And so his disciples said, "Ishe, if he is sleeping, he shall be healthy.”
11:13 But Jesus had spoken about his death. Yet they thought that he spoke about the repose of sleep.
11:14 saka, Jesus then said to them plainly, “Lazarus has died.
11:15 And I am glad for your sake that I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.”
11:16 And then Thomas, anonzi Twin, said to his fellow disciples, “Let us go, wo, so that we may die with him.”
11:17 And so Jesus went. And he found that he had already been in the tomb for four days.
11:18 (Now Bethania was near Jerusalem, about fifteen stadia.)
11:19 Uye vaJudha vazhinji vakanga vauya kuna Marita naMaria, kuti vavanyaradze pamusoro pehanzvadzi yavo.
11:20 saka, Martha, wakati anzwa kuti Jesu akanga kusvika, akabuda kundosangana naye. Asi Maria akanga agere pamba.
11:21 Zvino Marita akati kuna Jesu: "Ishe, dai maiva pano, hanzvadzi yangu ingadai isina kufa.
11:22 Asi kunyange ikozvino, Ndinoziva kuti chero uchava kukumbira kuna Mwari, Mwari vachakupaiwo. "
11:23 Jesu akati kwaari, "Hanzvadzi yako ichamukazve."
11:24 Marita akati kwaari, "Ndinoziva kuti uchamukazve zvakare, pakumuka pazuva rokupedzisira. "
11:25 Jesu akati kwaari: "Ndini Kumuka Life. Ani naani anotenda kwandiri, kunyange zvazvo iye akafa, achararama.
11:26 Uye munhu wose mupenyu uye anotenda mandiri haangafi nokusingaperi. Unotenda izvi?"
11:27 Iye akati kwaari: "Zvechokwadi, tenzi. Ndakatenda kuti ndimi Kristu, Mwanakomana waMwari mupenyu, uyo apinda ino. "
11:28 And when she had said these things, she went and called her sister Mary quietly, vachiti, “The Teacher is here, and he is calling you.”
11:29 When she heard this, she rose up quickly and went to him.
11:30 For Jesus had not yet arrived in the town. But he was still at that place where Martha had met him.
11:31 saka, the Jews who were with her in the house and who were consoling her, when they had seen that Mary rose up quickly and went out, they followed her, vachiti, “She is going to the tomb, so that she may weep there.”
11:32 saka, when Mary had arrived to where Jesus was, vamuona, she fell down at his feet, and she said to him. "Ishe, dai maiva pano, my brother would not have died.”
11:33 Ndokuzo, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had arrived with her weeping, he groaned in spirit and became troubled.
11:34 Akati, “Where have you laid him?"Ivo vakati kwaari, "Ishe, come and see.”
11:35 And Jesus wept.
11:36 saka, the Jews said, “See how much he loved him!"
11:37 Asi vamwe vavo vakati, “Would not he who opened the eyes of one born blind have been able to cause this man not to die?"
11:38 saka, Jesu, again groaning from within himself, went to the tomb. Now it was a cave, and a stone had been placed over it.
11:39 Jesu akati, “Take away the stone.” Martha, the sister of him who had died, akati kwaari, "Ishe, by now it will smell, for this is the fourth day.”
11:40 Jesu akati kwaari, “Did I not say to you that if you believe, you shall see the glory of God?"
11:41 saka, they took away the stone. ndokubva, Ndokusimudzira meso ake, Jesu akati: "Baba, I give thanks to you because you have heard me.
11:42 And I know that you always hear me, but I have said this for the sake of the people who are standing nearby, so that they may believe that you have sent me.”
11:43 When he had said these things, he cried in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out.”
11:44 uye pakarepo, he who had been dead went forth, bound at the feet and hands with winding bands. And his face was bound with a separate cloth. Jesu akati kwavari, “Release him and let him go.”
11:45 saka, many of the Jews, who had come to Mary and Martha, and who had seen the things that Jesus did, believed in him.
11:46 But certain ones among them went to the Pharisees and told them the things that Jesus had done.
11:47 uye saka, the high priests and the Pharisees gathered a council, and they were saying: “What can we do? For this man accomplishes many signs.
11:48 If we leave him alone, in this way all will believe in him. And then the Romans will come and take away our place and our nation.”
11:49 Zvino mumwe wavo, named Caiaphas, since he was the high priest that year, akati kwavari: “You do not understand anything.
11:50 Nor do you realize that it is expedient for you that one man should die for the people, and that the entire nation should not perish.”
11:51 Yet he did not say this from himself, but since he was the high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation.
11:52 And not only for the nation, but in order to gather together as one the children of God who have been dispersed.
11:53 saka, from that day, they planned to put him to death.
11:54 uye saka, Jesus no longer walked in public with the Jews. But he went into a region near the desert, to a city which is called Ephraim. And he lodged there with his disciples.
11:55 Now the Passover of the Jews was near. And many from the countryside ascended to Jerusalem before the Passover, so that they might sanctify themselves.
11:56 saka, they were seeking Jesus. And they conferred with one another, while standing in the temple: “What do you think? Will he come to the feast day?"
11:57 And the high priests and Pharisees had given an order, so that if anyone would know where he may be, he should reveal it, so that they might apprehend him.
