John 12


John 12:1 Jesus, therefore, six days before the Passover, came to Bethany where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead.
John 12:2 So they made Him a supper there, and Martha was serving; but Lazarus was one of those reclining at the table with Him.
John 12:3 Mary then took a pound of very costly perfume of pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped His feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
John 12:4 But Judas Iscariot, one of His disciples, who was intending to betray Him, *said,
John 12:5 "Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred denarii and given to poor people?"
John 12:6 Now he said this, not because he was concerned about the poor, but because he was a thief, and as he had the money box, he used to pilfer what was put into it.
John 12:7 Therefore Jesus said," Let her alone, so that she may keep it for the day of My burial.
John 12:8 For you always have the poor with you, but you do not always have Me."
John 12:9 The large crowd of the Jews then learned that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He raised from the dead.
John 12:10 But the chief priests planned to put Lazarus to death also;
John 12:11 because on account of him many of the Jews were going away and were believing in Jesus.
John 12:12 On the next day the large crowd who had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
John 12:13 took the branches of the palm trees and went out to meet Him, and began to shout," Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel."
John 12:14 Jesus, finding a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written,
John 12:15 "Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your King is coming, seated on a donkey's colt."
John 12:16 These things His disciples did not understand at the first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written of Him, and that they had done these things to Him.
John 12:17 So the people, who were with Him when He called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead, continued to testify about Him.
John 12:18 For this reason also the people went and met Him, because they heard that He had performed this sign.
John 12:19 So the Pharisees said to one another," You see that you are not doing any good; look, the world has gone after Him."
John 12:20 Now there were some Greeks among those who were going up to worship at the feast;
John 12:21 these then came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and began to ask him, saying," Sir, we wish to see Jesus."
John 12:22 Philip *came and *told Andrew; Andrew and Philip *came and *told Jesus.
John 12:23 And Jesus *answered them, saying," The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.
John 12:24 Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.
John 12:25 He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal.
John 12:26 If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.
John 12:27 "Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, 'Father, save Me from this hour'? But for this purpose I came to this hour.
John 12:28 Father, glorify Your name." Then a voice came out of heaven." I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again."
John 12:29 So the crowd of people who stood by and heard it were saying that it had thundered; others were saying," An angel has spoken to Him."
John 12:30 Jesus answered and said," This voice has not come for My sake, but for your sakes.
John 12:31 Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out.
John 12:32 And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself."
John 12:33 But He was saying this to indicate the kind of death by which He was to die.
John 12:34 The crowd then answered Him," We have heard out of the Law that the Christ is to remain forever; and how can You say, 'The Son of Man must be lifted up'? Who is this Son of Man?"
John 12:35 So Jesus said to them," For a little while longer the Light is among you. Walk while you have the Light, so that darkness will not overtake you; he who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes.
John 12:36 While you have the Light, believe in the Light, so that you may become sons of Light." These things Jesus spoke, and He went away and hid Himself from them.
John 12:37 But though He had performed so many signs before them, yet they were not believing in Him.
John 12:38 This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet which he spoke." Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?"
John 12:39 For this reason they could not believe, for Isaiah said again,
John 12:40 "He has blinded their eyes and He hardened their heart, so that they would not see with their eyes and perceive with their heart, and be converted and I heal them."
John 12:41 These things Isaiah said because he saw His glory, and he spoke of Him.
John 12:42 Nevertheless many even of the rulers believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, for fear that they would be put out of the synagogue;
John 12:43 for they loved the approval of men rather than the approval of God.
John 12:44 And Jesus cried out and said," He who believes in Me, does not believe in Me but in Him who sent Me.
John 12:45 He who sees Me sees the One who sent Me.
John 12:46 I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.
John 12:47 If anyone hears My sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.
John 12:48 He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day.
John 12:49 For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak.
John 12:50 I know that His commandment is eternal life; therefore the things I speak, I speak just as the Father has told Me."

King James Version New American Standard Koine Greek
John 12:1 Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. John 12:1 Jesus, therefore, six days before the Passover, came to Bethany where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. John 12:1 ὁ οὗν ἰησοῦς πρὸ ἓξ ἡμερῶν τοῦ πάσχα ἦλθεν εἰς βηθανίαν, ὅπου ἦν λάζαρος, ὃν ἤγειρεν ἐκ νεκρῶν ἰησοῦς.
John 12:2 There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. John 12:2 So they made Him a supper there, and Martha was serving; but Lazarus was one of those reclining at the table with Him. John 12:2 ἐποίησαν οὗν αὐτῶ δεῖπνον ἐκεῖ, καὶ ἡ μάρθα διηκόνει, ὁ δὲ λάζαρος εἷς ἦν ἐκ τῶν ἀνακειμένων σὺν αὐτῶ.
John 12:3 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. John 12:3 Mary then took a pound of very costly perfume of pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped His feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. John 12:3 ἡ οὗν μαριὰμ λαβοῦσα λίτραν μύρου νάρδου πιστικῆς πολυτίμου ἤλειψεν τοὺς πόδας τοῦ ἰησοῦ καὶ ἐξέμαξεν ταῖς θριξὶν αὐτῆς τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ· ἡ δὲ οἰκία ἐπληρώθη ἐκ τῆς ὀσμῆς τοῦ μύρου.
John 12:4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him, John 12:4 But Judas Iscariot, one of His disciples, who was intending to betray Him, *said, John 12:4 λέγει δὲ ἰούδας ὁ ἰσκαριώτης εἷς [ἐκ] τῶν μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ, ὁ μέλλων αὐτὸν παραδιδόναι,
John 12:5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? John 12:5 "Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred denarii and given to poor people?" John 12:5 διὰ τί τοῦτο τὸ μύρον οὐκ ἐπράθη τριακοσίων δηναρίων καὶ ἐδόθη πτωχοῖς;
John 12:6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein. John 12:6 Now he said this, not because he was concerned about the poor, but because he was a thief, and as he had the money box, he used to pilfer what was put into it. John 12:6 εἶπεν δὲ τοῦτο οὐχ ὅτι περὶ τῶν πτωχῶν ἔμελεν αὐτῶ ἀλλ᾽ ὅτι κλέπτης ἦν καὶ τὸ γλωσσόκομον ἔχων τὰ βαλλόμενα ἐβάσταζεν.
John 12:7 Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this. John 12:7 Therefore Jesus said," Let her alone, so that she may keep it for the day of My burial. John 12:7 εἶπεν οὗν ὁ ἰησοῦς, ἄφες αὐτήν, ἵνα εἰς τὴν ἡμέραν τοῦ ἐνταφιασμοῦ μου τηρήσῃ αὐτό·
John 12:8 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always. John 12:8 For you always have the poor with you, but you do not always have Me." John 12:8 τοὺς πτωχοὺς γὰρ πάντοτε ἔχετε μεθ᾽ ἑαυτῶν, ἐμὲ δὲ οὐ πάντοτε ἔχετε.
John 12:9 Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead. John 12:9 The large crowd of the Jews then learned that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He raised from the dead. John 12:9 ἔγνω οὗν [ὁ] ὄχλος πολὺς ἐκ τῶν ἰουδαίων ὅτι ἐκεῖ ἐστιν, καὶ ἦλθον οὐ διὰ τὸν ἰησοῦν μόνον ἀλλ᾽ ἵνα καὶ τὸν λάζαρον ἴδωσιν ὃν ἤγειρεν ἐκ νεκρῶν.
John 12:10 But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death; John 12:10 But the chief priests planned to put Lazarus to death also; John 12:10 ἐβουλεύσαντο δὲ οἱ ἀρχιερεῖς ἵνα καὶ τὸν λάζαρον ἀποκτείνωσιν,
John 12:11 Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus. John 12:11 because on account of him many of the Jews were going away and were believing in Jesus. John 12:11 ὅτι πολλοὶ δι᾽ αὐτὸν ὑπῆγον τῶν ἰουδαίων καὶ ἐπίστευον εἰς τὸν ἰησοῦν.
John 12:12 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, John 12:12 On the next day the large crowd who had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, John 12:12 τῇ ἐπαύριον ὁ ὄχλος πολὺς ὁ ἐλθὼν εἰς τὴν ἑορτήν, ἀκούσαντες ὅτι ἔρχεται ὁ ἰησοῦς εἰς ἱεροσόλυμα,
John 12:13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord. John 12:13 took the branches of the palm trees and went out to meet Him, and began to shout," Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel." John 12:13 ἔλαβον τὰ βαΐα τῶν φοινίκων καὶ ἐξῆλθον εἰς ὑπάντησιν αὐτῶ, καὶ ἐκραύγαζον, ὡσαννά· εὐλογημένος ὁ ἐρχόμενος ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου, [καὶ] ὁ βασιλεὺς τοῦ ἰσραήλ.
John 12:14 And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written, John 12:14 Jesus, finding a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written, John 12:14 εὑρὼν δὲ ὁ ἰησοῦς ὀνάριον ἐκάθισεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτό, καθώς ἐστιν γεγραμμένον,
John 12:15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt. John 12:15 "Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your King is coming, seated on a donkey's colt." John 12:15 μὴ φοβοῦ, θυγάτηρ σιών· ἰδοὺ ὁ βασιλεύς σου ἔρχεται, καθήμενος ἐπὶ πῶλον ὄνου.
John 12:16 These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him. John 12:16 These things His disciples did not understand at the first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written of Him, and that they had done these things to Him. John 12:16 ταῦτα οὐκ ἔγνωσαν αὐτοῦ οἱ μαθηταὶ τὸ πρῶτον, ἀλλ᾽ ὅτε ἐδοξάσθη ἰησοῦς τότε ἐμνήσθησαν ὅτι ταῦτα ἦν ἐπ᾽ αὐτῶ γεγραμμένα καὶ ταῦτα ἐποίησαν αὐτῶ.
John 12:17 The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record. John 12:17 So the people, who were with Him when He called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead, continued to testify about Him. John 12:17 ἐμαρτύρει οὗν ὁ ὄχλος ὁ ὢν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ὅτε τὸν λάζαρον ἐφώνησεν ἐκ τοῦ μνημείου καὶ ἤγειρεν αὐτὸν ἐκ νεκρῶν.
John 12:18 For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle. John 12:18 For this reason also the people went and met Him, because they heard that He had performed this sign. John 12:18 διὰ τοῦτο [καὶ] ὑπήντησεν αὐτῶ ὁ ὄχλος ὅτι ἤκουσαν τοῦτο αὐτὸν πεποιηκέναι τὸ σημεῖον.
John 12:19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him. John 12:19 So the Pharisees said to one another," You see that you are not doing any good; look, the world has gone after Him." John 12:19 οἱ οὗν φαρισαῖοι εἶπαν πρὸς ἑαυτούς, θεωρεῖτε ὅτι οὐκ ὠφελεῖτε οὐδέν· ἴδε ὁ κόσμος ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ ἀπῆλθεν.
John 12:20 And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast: John 12:20 Now there were some Greeks among those who were going up to worship at the feast; John 12:20 ἦσαν δὲ ἕλληνές τινες ἐκ τῶν ἀναβαινόντων ἵνα προσκυνήσωσιν ἐν τῇ ἑορτῇ·
John 12:21 The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus. John 12:21 these then came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and began to ask him, saying," Sir, we wish to see Jesus." John 12:21 οὖτοι οὗν προσῆλθον φιλίππῳ τῶ ἀπὸ βηθσαϊδὰ τῆς γαλιλαίας, καὶ ἠρώτων αὐτὸν λέγοντες, κύριε, θέλομεν τὸν ἰησοῦν ἰδεῖν.
John 12:22 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus. John 12:22 Philip *came and *told Andrew; Andrew and Philip *came and *told Jesus. John 12:22 ἔρχεται ὁ φίλιππος καὶ λέγει τῶ ἀνδρέᾳ· ἔρχεται ἀνδρέας καὶ φίλιππος καὶ λέγουσιν τῶ ἰησοῦ.
John 12:23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. John 12:23 And Jesus *answered them, saying," The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. John 12:23 ὁ δὲ ἰησοῦς ἀποκρίνεται αὐτοῖς λέγων, ἐλήλυθεν ἡ ὥρα ἵνα δοξασθῇ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου.
John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. John 12:24 Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. John 12:24 ἀμὴν ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ἐὰν μὴ ὁ κόκκος τοῦ σίτου πεσὼν εἰς τὴν γῆν ἀποθάνῃ, αὐτὸς μόνος μένει· ἐὰν δὲ ἀποθάνῃ, πολὺν καρπὸν φέρει.
John 12:25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. John 12:25 He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal. John 12:25 ὁ φιλῶν τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ ἀπολλύει αὐτήν, καὶ ὁ μισῶν τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῶ κόσμῳ τούτῳ εἰς ζωὴν αἰώνιον φυλάξει αὐτήν.
John 12:26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour. John 12:26 If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him. John 12:26 ἐὰν ἐμοί τις διακονῇ, ἐμοὶ ἀκολουθείτω, καὶ ὅπου εἰμὶ ἐγὼ ἐκεῖ καὶ ὁ διάκονος ὁ ἐμὸς ἔσται· ἐάν τις ἐμοὶ διακονῇ τιμήσει αὐτὸν ὁ πατήρ.
John 12:27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour. John 12:27 "Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, 'Father, save Me from this hour'? But for this purpose I came to this hour. John 12:27 νῦν ἡ ψυχή μου τετάρακται. καὶ τί εἴπω; πάτερ, σῶσόν με ἐκ τῆς ὥρας ταύτης; ἀλλὰ διὰ τοῦτο ἦλθον εἰς τὴν ὥραν ταύτην.
John 12:28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again. John 12:28 Father, glorify Your name." Then a voice came out of heaven." I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again." John 12:28 πάτερ, δόξασόν σου τὸ ὄνομα. ἦλθεν οὗν φωνὴ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, καὶ ἐδόξασα καὶ πάλιν δοξάσω.
John 12:29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. John 12:29 So the crowd of people who stood by and heard it were saying that it had thundered; others were saying," An angel has spoken to Him." John 12:29 ὁ οὗν ὄχλος ὁ ἑστὼς καὶ ἀκούσας ἔλεγεν βροντὴν γεγονέναι· ἄλλοι ἔλεγον, ἄγγελος αὐτῶ λελάληκεν.
John 12:30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes. John 12:30 Jesus answered and said," This voice has not come for My sake, but for your sakes. John 12:30 ἀπεκρίθη ἰησοῦς καὶ εἶπεν, οὐ δι᾽ ἐμὲ ἡ φωνὴ αὕτη γέγονεν ἀλλὰ δι᾽ ὑμᾶς.
John 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. John 12:31 Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out. John 12:31 νῦν κρίσις ἐστὶν τοῦ κόσμου τούτου, νῦν ὁ ἄρχων τοῦ κόσμου τούτου ἐκβληθήσεται ἔξω·
John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. John 12:32 And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself." John 12:32 κἀγὼ ἐὰν ὑψωθῶ ἐκ τῆς γῆς, πάντας ἑλκύσω πρὸς ἐμαυτόν.
John 12:33 This he said, signifying what death he should die. John 12:33 But He was saying this to indicate the kind of death by which He was to die. John 12:33 τοῦτο δὲ ἔλεγεν σημαίνων ποίῳ θανάτῳ ἤμελλεν ἀποθνῄσκειν.
John 12:34 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man? John 12:34 The crowd then answered Him," We have heard out of the Law that the Christ is to remain forever; and how can You say, 'The Son of Man must be lifted up'? Who is this Son of Man?" John 12:34 ἀπεκρίθη οὗν αὐτῶ ὁ ὄχλος, ἡμεῖς ἠκούσαμεν ἐκ τοῦ νόμου ὅτι ὁ χριστὸς μένει εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα, καὶ πῶς λέγεις σὺ ὅτι δεῖ ὑψωθῆναι τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου; τίς ἐστιν οὖτος ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου;
John 12:35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. John 12:35 So Jesus said to them," For a little while longer the Light is among you. Walk while you have the Light, so that darkness will not overtake you; he who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes. John 12:35 εἶπεν οὗν αὐτοῖς ὁ ἰησοῦς, ἔτι μικρὸν χρόνον τὸ φῶς ἐν ὑμῖν ἐστιν. περιπατεῖτε ὡς τὸ φῶς ἔχετε, ἵνα μὴ σκοτία ὑμᾶς καταλάβῃ· καὶ ὁ περιπατῶν ἐν τῇ σκοτίᾳ οὐκ οἶδεν ποῦ ὑπάγει.
John 12:36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them. John 12:36 While you have the Light, believe in the Light, so that you may become sons of Light." These things Jesus spoke, and He went away and hid Himself from them. John 12:36 ὡς τὸ φῶς ἔχετε, πιστεύετε εἰς τὸ φῶς, ἵνα υἱοὶ φωτὸς γένησθε. ταῦτα ἐλάλησεν ἰησοῦς, καὶ ἀπελθὼν ἐκρύβη ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν.
John 12:37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: John 12:37 But though He had performed so many signs before them, yet they were not believing in Him. John 12:37 τοσαῦτα δὲ αὐτοῦ σημεῖα πεποιηκότος ἔμπροσθεν αὐτῶν οὐκ ἐπίστευον εἰς αὐτόν,
John 12:38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spake, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed? John 12:38 This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet which he spoke." Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?" John 12:38 ἵνα ὁ λόγος ἠσαΐου τοῦ προφήτου πληρωθῇ ὃν εἶπεν, κύριε, τίς ἐπίστευσεν τῇ ἀκοῇ ἡμῶν; καὶ ὁ βραχίων κυρίου τίνι ἀπεκαλύφθη;
John 12:39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again, John 12:39 For this reason they could not believe, for Isaiah said again, John 12:39 διὰ τοῦτο οὐκ ἠδύναντο πιστεύειν, ὅτι πάλιν εἶπεν ἠσαΐας,
John 12:40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. John 12:40 "He has blinded their eyes and He hardened their heart, so that they would not see with their eyes and perceive with their heart, and be converted and I heal them." John 12:40 τετύφλωκεν αὐτῶν τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς καὶ ἐπώρωσεν αὐτῶν τὴν καρδίαν, ἵνα μὴ ἴδωσιν τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς καὶ νοήσωσιν τῇ καρδίᾳ καὶ στραφῶσιν, καὶ ἰάσομαι αὐτούς.
John 12:41 These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him. John 12:41 These things Isaiah said because he saw His glory, and he spoke of Him. John 12:41 ταῦτα εἶπεν ἠσαΐας, ὅτι εἶδεν τὴν δόξαν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐλάλησεν περὶ αὐτοῦ.
John 12:42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: John 12:42 Nevertheless many even of the rulers believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, for fear that they would be put out of the synagogue; John 12:42 ὅμως μέντοι καὶ ἐκ τῶν ἀρχόντων πολλοὶ ἐπίστευσαν εἰς αὐτόν, ἀλλὰ διὰ τοὺς φαρισαίους οὐχ ὡμολόγουν ἵνα μὴ ἀποσυνάγωγοι γένωνται·
John 12:43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. John 12:43 for they loved the approval of men rather than the approval of God. John 12:43 ἠγάπησαν γὰρ τὴν δόξαν τῶν ἀνθρώπων μᾶλλον ἤπερ τὴν δόξαν τοῦ θεοῦ.
John 12:44 Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. John 12:44 And Jesus cried out and said," He who believes in Me, does not believe in Me but in Him who sent Me. John 12:44 ἰησοῦς δὲ ἔκραξεν καὶ εἶπεν, ὁ πιστεύων εἰς ἐμὲ οὐ πιστεύει εἰς ἐμὲ ἀλλὰ εἰς τὸν πέμψαντά με,
John 12:45 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. John 12:45 He who sees Me sees the One who sent Me. John 12:45 καὶ ὁ θεωρῶν ἐμὲ θεωρεῖ τὸν πέμψαντά με.
John 12:46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. John 12:46 I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness. John 12:46 ἐγὼ φῶς εἰς τὸν κόσμον ἐλήλυθα, ἵνα πᾶς ὁ πιστεύων εἰς ἐμὲ ἐν τῇ σκοτίᾳ μὴ μείνῃ.
John 12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. John 12:47 If anyone hears My sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. John 12:47 καὶ ἐάν τίς μου ἀκούσῃ τῶν ῥημάτων καὶ μὴ φυλάξῃ, ἐγὼ οὐ κρίνω αὐτόν, οὐ γὰρ ἦλθον ἵνα κρίνω τὸν κόσμον ἀλλ᾽ ἵνα σώσω τὸν κόσμον.
John 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. John 12:48 He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day. John 12:48 ὁ ἀθετῶν ἐμὲ καὶ μὴ λαμβάνων τὰ ῥήματά μου ἔχει τὸν κρίνοντα αὐτόν· ὁ λόγος ὃν ἐλάλησα ἐκεῖνος κρινεῖ αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ ἐσχάτῃ ἡμέρᾳ·
John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. John 12:49 For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak. John 12:49 ὅτι ἐγὼ ἐξ ἐμαυτοῦ οὐκ ἐλάλησα, ἀλλ᾽ ὁ πέμψας με πατὴρ αὐτός μοι ἐντολὴν δέδωκεν τί εἴπω καὶ τί λαλήσω.
John 12:50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak. John 12:50 I know that His commandment is eternal life; therefore the things I speak, I speak just as the Father has told Me." John 12:50 καὶ οἶδα ὅτι ἡ ἐντολὴ αὐτοῦ ζωὴ αἰώνιός ἐστιν. ἃ οὗν ἐγὼ λαλῶ, καθὼς εἴρηκέν μοι ὁ πατήρ, οὕτως λαλῶ.
