聖若望福音 11:1-45

那時候,有一個病人,名叫拉匝祿,住在伯達尼,即瑪利亞和她姐姐瑪爾大所住的村莊。瑪利亞就是那曾用香液傅抹過主,並用自己的頭髮,把他的腳擦乾的婦人;患病的拉匝祿是她的兄弟。

他們姊妹兩人,便派人到耶穌那裡,說:「主啊,你所愛的人病了!」耶穌聽了,便說:「這病不至於死,只是為彰顯天主的光榮,並為叫天主子因此受光榮。」

耶穌素來疼愛瑪爾大及她的妹妹和拉匝祿。

當耶穌聽說拉匝祿病了,仍在原地逗留了兩天。此後,耶穌對門徒說:「我們再到猶太去吧!」門徒向他說:「辣彼,近來猶太人圖謀砸死你,你還要到那裡去麼?」

耶穌回答說:「白日不是有十二個時辰麼?人若在白日行路,不會碰跌,因為看得見這世界的光;人若在黑夜行路,就要碰跌,因為他沒有光。」

耶穌說了這些話,又給門徒說:「我們的朋友拉匝祿睡著了;我要去叫醒他。」

門徒便對耶穌說:「主,如果他睡著了,必定會好的。」耶穌原本是指拉匝祿的死說的,門徒卻以為耶穌是指安眠睡覺。

然後,耶穌就明明地向門徒說:「拉匝祿死了。為了你們,我喜歡我不在那裡,好叫你們相信。我們到他那裡去吧!」

號稱狄狄摩的多默,便向其他同伴說:「我們也去,同他一起死吧!」

耶穌一到了伯達尼,得知拉匝祿在墳墓裡,已經四天了。伯達尼靠近耶路撒冷,相距約十五『斯塔狄』,因而有許多猶太人,來到瑪爾大和瑪利亞那裡,為她們兄弟的死,安慰她們。

瑪爾大一聽說耶穌來了,便去迎接他;瑪利亞仍坐在家裡。瑪爾大對耶穌說:「主!如果你在這裡,我的兄弟決不會死!就是現在,我也知道:你無論向天主求什麼,天主必要賜給你。」

耶穌對瑪爾大說:「你的兄弟必定要復活。」

瑪爾大說:「我知道在末日復活時,他必要復活。」

耶穌對瑪爾大說:「我就是復活,就是生命;信從我的,即使死了,仍要活著;凡活著而信從我的人,必永遠不死。你信麼?」

瑪爾大回答說:「是的,主,我信你是默西亞,天主子,要來到世界上的那一位。」

瑪爾大說了這話,就去叫她的妹妹瑪利亞,偷偷地說:「師父來了,他叫你。」瑪利亞一聽這話,就立刻起身,到耶穌那裡去。那時,耶穌還沒有進入村莊,仍在瑪爾大迎接他的地方。那些陪同和安慰瑪利亞的猶太人,見瑪利亞急忙起身出去,便跟著她,以為她到墳墓去哭泣。

當瑪利亞來到耶穌所在的地方,一看見耶穌,就俯伏在他腳前,向他說:「主!如果你在這裡,我的兄弟決不會死!」

耶穌看見瑪利亞哭泣,還有同她一起來的猶太人也哭泣;耶穌便心神感傷,難過起來,於是說:「你們把他安放在那裡?」

他們回答說:「主,你來,看吧!」耶穌哭了。於是猶太人說:「看,他多麼愛他啊!」其中有些人說:「他既開了瞎子的眼睛,難道不能使這人不死麼?」

耶穌心中又感傷起來,來到墳墓前。這墳墓是個洞穴,前面有一塊石頭堵著。

耶穌說:「挪開這塊石頭!」

死者的姐姐瑪爾大向耶穌說:「主!已經臭了,因為已經四天了。」

耶穌對瑪爾大說:「我不是告訴過你:如果你信,就會看到天主的光榮嗎?」他們便挪開了石頭。

耶穌舉目向上,說:「父啊!我感謝你,因為你俯聽了我。我本來知道你常常俯聽我,但是,我說這話,是為了四周站立的群眾,好叫他們相信,是你派遣了我。」說完這話,便大聲喊說:「拉匝祿!出來吧!」死者便出來了,腳和手都纏著布條,面上還蒙著汗巾。耶穌向他們說:「解開他,讓他行走吧。」

那些來到瑪利亞那裡的猶太人,一看到耶穌所行的事,就有許多人相信了他。

The holy Gospel according to John (11:3-7, 17, 20-27, 33b-45)

The sisters of Lazarus sent word to Jesus saying, “Master, the one you love is ill.” When Jesus heard this he said, “This illness is not to end in death, but is for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So when he heard that he was ill, he remained for two days in the place where he was. Then after this he said to his disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.”

When Jesus arrived, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb for four days. When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went to meet him; but Mary sat at home. Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. But even now I know that whatever you ask of God, God will give you.” Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise.” Martha said, “I know he will rise, in the resurrection on the last day.” Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” She said to him, “Yes, Lord. I have come to believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one who is coming into the world.”

He became perturbed and deeply troubled, and said, “Where have you laid him?” They said to him, “Sir, come and see.” And Jesus wept. So the Jews said, “See how he loved him.” But some of them said, “Could not the one who opened the eyes of the blind man have done something so that this man would not have died?”

So Jesus, perturbed again, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone lay across it. Jesus said, “Take away the stone.” Martha, the dead man’s sister, said to him, “Lord, by now there will be a stench; he has been dead for four days.” Jesus said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you believe you will see the glory of God?” So they took away the stone. And Jesus raised his eyes and said, “Father, I thank you for hearing me. I know that you always hear me; but because of the crowd here I have said this, that they may believe that you sent me.” And when he had said this, he cried out in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” The dead man came out, tied hand and foot with burial bands, and his face was wrapped in a cloth. So Jesus said to them, “Untie him and let him go.”

Now many of the Jews who had come to Mary and seen what he had done began to believe in him.
