John 11:21-45 (ASV)

21 Martha therefore said unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
22
And even now I know that, whatsoever thou shalt ask of God, God will give thee.
23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.
24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
25
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth on me, though he die, yet shall he live;
26
and whosoever liveth and believeth on me shall never die. Believest thou this?
27
She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I have believed that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, even he that cometh into the world.
28
And when she had said this, she went away, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Teacher is her, and calleth thee.
29 And she, when she heard it, arose quickly, and went unto him.
30 (Now Jesus was not yet come into the village, but was still in the place where Martha met him.)
31
The Jews then who were with her in the house, and were consoling her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up quickly and went out, followed her, supposing that she was going unto the tomb to weep there.
32
Mary therefore, when she came where Jesus was, and saw him, fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.
33
When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping who came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled,
34
and said, Where have ye laid him? They say unto him, Lord, come and see.
35
Jesus wept.
36
The Jews therefore said, Behold how he loved him!
37
But some of them said, Could not this man, who opened the eyes of him that was blind, have caused that this man also should not die?
38
Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the tomb. Now it was a cave, and a stone lay against it.
39
Jesus saith, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time the body decayeth; for he hath been dead four days.
40
Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou believedst, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
41
So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou heardest me.
42
And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the multitude that standeth around I said it, that they may believe that thou didst send me.
43
And when he had thus spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.
44
He that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave-clothes; and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.
45
Many therefore of the Jews, who came to Mary and beheld that which he did, believed on him.
