John 12 ©
Mary anointeth the feet of Jesus: Judas murmureth at the cost. The people flock to see Lazarus: the chief priests consult to kill him. Jesus rideth into Jerusalem in triumph. Certain Greeks desire to see him. He sheweth the benefit of his death to believers; prayeth to his Father; is answered by a voice from heaven; signifieth the manner of his death; and exhorteth to make good use of the present light. The generality of the Jews believe not: yet many chief rulers believe, but dare not confess him: he urgeth faith in his divine mission.

The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.
Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, qbut for your sakes.
This he said, vsignifying what death he should die.
The people answered him, We have heard out of wthe law xthat Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? ywho is this Son of man?
Then Jesus said unto them, zYet a little while is the light with you. aWalk while ye have the light, lest bdarkness come upon you: for che that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
kHe 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.
These things said Esaias, lwhen he saw his glory, and spake of him.
