1 Accordingly 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏, six days before the Pesaḥ came to Bĕyth Anyah, where El’azar was, who had died, whom He raised from the dead.
2 So they made Him a supper there, and Martha served, while El’azar was one of those who sat at the table with Him.
3 Then Miryam took a litra of costly perfume of nard, anointed the feet of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
4 Then one of His talmidim, Yahuḏah from Qeriyoth, of Shim’on, who was about to deliver Him up, said,
5 “Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred pieces of silver and given to the poor?”
6 And he said this, not because he was concerned about the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and he used to take what was put in it.
7 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 then said, “Let her alone, she has kept this for the day of My burial.
8 “For the poor you have with you always, but Me you do not have always.”
9 Then a great crowd of the Yahuḏim learned that He was there. And they came, not on account of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 only, but also to see El’azar, whom He had raised from the dead.
10 And the chief kohenim resolved to kill El’azar as well,
11 because on account of him many of the Yahuḏim went away and believed in 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏.
12 On the next day a great crowd who had come to the Festival, when they heard that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 was coming to Yerushalayim,
13 took the branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and were crying out, “Hoshia-na! Baruḵ is He who is coming in the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, the Sovereign of Yisra’ĕl!”
14 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏, having found· a young donkey, sat on it, as it has been written:
15 “Do not fear, daughter of Tsiyon, see, your Sovereign is coming, sitting on the colt of a donkey.”
16 At first His talmidim did not understand this. But when 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 was esteemed, then they remembered that this was written about Him and that they had done this to Him.
17 Therefore the crowd, who were with Him when He called El’azar out of his tomb and raised him from the dead, were bearing witness.
18 On account of this the crowd also met Him, because they heard that He had done this sign.
19 The Pharisees then said among themselves, “You see how you are getting nowhere at all. Look, the world has gone after Him!”
20 And there were certain Yawanites among those coming up to worship at the Festival.
21 These then came to Philippos, who was from Bĕyth Tsaiḏa of Galil, and were asking him, saying, “Aḏonai, we want to see 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏.”
22 Philippos came and told Andri, and in turn Andri and Philippos told 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏.
23 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 answered them, saying, “The hour has come for the Bĕn of Aḏam to be esteemed.
24 “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone. But if it dies, it bears much fruit.
25 “He who loves his life shall lose it, and he who hates his life in this world shall preserve it for everlasting ḥai.
26 “If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me. And where I am, there My servant also shall be. If anyone serves Me, the Father shall value him.
27 “Now I Myself am troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save Me from this hour’? But for this reason I came to this hour.
28 “Father, esteem Your Name.” Then a voice came from the shamayim, “I have both esteemed it and shall esteem it again.”
29 So the crowd who stood by and heard it were saying there had been thunder. Others, said, “A messenger has spoken to Him.”
30 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 answered and said, “This voice did not come because of Me, but for your sake.
31 “Now is the judgment of this world, now the ruler of this world shall be cast out.
32 “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, shall draw all unto Myself.”
33 This He said, signifying by what death He was about to die.
34 The crowd answered Him, “We have heard out of the Torah that ha’Mashiaḥ remains forever. And how do You say, ‘The Bĕn of Aḏam has to be lifted up’? Who is this Bĕn of Aḏam?”
35 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏, therefore, said to them, “Yet a little while the Light is with you. Walk while you have the Light, lest darkness overtake you. And he who walks in darkness does not know where he is going.
36 “While you have the Light, believe in the Light, so that you become sons of Light.” These 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 spoke, and went off and was hidden from them.
37 But though He had done so many signs before them, they did not believe in Him,
38 that the word of Yeshayahu the naḇi might be filled, which he spoke, “𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 been revealed?”
39 Because of this they were unable to believe, because again Yeshayahu said:
40 “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, so that they should not see with their eyes and understand with their heart, and turn, and I should heal them.”
41 Yeshayahu said this when he saw His esteem and spoke of Him.
42 Still, even among the rulers many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess, lest they should be put out of the congregation,
43 for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of Elohim.
44 Then 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤔𐤏 cried out and said, “He who believes in Me, believes not in Me but in Him who sent Me.
45 “And he who sees Me sees Him who sent Me.
46 “I have come as a Light into the world, so that no one who believes in Me should stay in darkness.
47 “And if anyone hears My Words but does not watch over them, I do not judge him. For I did not come to judge the world but to save the world.
48 “He who rejects Me, and does not receive My Words, has one who judges him: the Word that I have spoken shall judge him in the last day.
49 “Because I spoke not from Myself, but the Father who sent Me has given Me a Command, what I should say and what I should speak.
50 “And I know that His Command is everlasting ḥai. Therefore, whatever I speak, as the Father has said to Me, so I speak.”
