The illness of El'azar
11:1 Now a certain [man] was sick, [named] El'azar, of Beit Anyah, the village of Miryam and her achot (sister) Martha.
11:2 (It was [that] Miryam which anointed Master with ointment, and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother El'azar was sick.)
11:3Therefore his achayot (sisters) sent to Him, saying:
"Adoni (אדני), Hinnei, he whom You love (phileo) is sick.
11:4 When Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) heard that, He said: " This machla (sickness) is not to mavet (death), but for the glory of Elohim (אלהים), that BEN Elohim (אלהים) might be glorified through it."
11:5 Now Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) loved (agapao) Martha, and her achot (sister), and El'azar.
11:6 When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.
11:7 Then after that said he to [his] talmidim, Let us go into Yehudah again.
11:8 The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.   The talmidim say to Him:
Rabbi, lately the Yehudim sought to stone You; and are You going there again?

11:9eretzarow.gif Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) answered:
"Are there not twelve hours in the day?
If any man walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.
11:10 But if a man walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him."
11:11 This He said and after that  He said to them:
"Our friend El'azar has fallen asleep; but I go, that I may wake him up."
11:12 Then said His Talmidim, "Adoni (אדני), if he sleeps, he will get well."
11:13 However Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) had spoken of his death: but they thought that He was speaking of literal sleep.
11:14 Then said Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) to them plainly, El'azar is dead.
11:15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, that you may believe. Nevertheless let us go to him."
11:16 Then said Thomas, which is called Didumos (twins), to his fellow talmidim, "Let us also go, that we may die with Him."
11:17 So when Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) came, He found that he had had already been in the kever (tomb) arba'ah yamim (four days).
11:18 Now Beit Anyah was near Yerushalayim, about two miles away:
11:19 And many of the Yehudim came to Martha and Miryam, to console them concerning their brother.
11:20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) was coming, went and met him: but Miryam sat (shivah) still in the house.
11:21 Now Martha said to Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) , "Master, if You have been here, my achi (brother) would not have died."
11:22 But even now I know that whatsoever You ask of Elohim (אֱלֹהִים), Elohim (אֱלֹהִים) will give You."
11:23 Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) said to her:
"Your achi shall rise again."
11:24 Martha said to Him:"I know that he will rise again in the tekhiyyah at the Yom haAcharon (last day). (Dani'el 12:2)
11:25 Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) said to her,
Ani Hu ha tekhiyyah (resurrection), ve ha chayim (life):

"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live."
11:26 And whosoever lives and have emunah (believe, faith) in Me shall never die. Do you have emunah in this?
11:27 She said to him, "Yes, Adoni (אדני)":
"I have emunah that You are the Mashiach, BEN Elohim (אלהים), Hu Habah el HaOlam" (He who comes into the world)
11:28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Miryam her achot (sister) secretly, saying, "The Rabeinu is here, and is calling you".
11:29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came to Him.
11:30 Now Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) was not yet come into the village, He was still in that place where Martha had met him.
11:31 Then the Yehudim who were with her in the house, and consoled her, when they saw Miryam got up quickly and went out, they followed her, supposing that she was going to the tomb to weep there.
11:32 Then when Miryam came where Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) was, and saw Him, she fell down at His feet, saying to Him: "Adoni (אדני), if You had been here, my achi (brother) would not have died.
11:33 When Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) therefore saw her weeping, and the Yehudim who came with her also weeping. He was deeply moved in spirit and was troubled,
11:34 And said, Where have you laid him? They said to him, "Adoni (אדני), come and see."
11:35 Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) wept.
11:36 Then the Yehudim said, "Hinnei how He loved (phileo) him!
11:37 And some of them said:

"Could not this Man, who opened the eyes of the blind, also have kept this man from dying?"
11:38 Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) therefore deeply moved again, came to the kever (tomb). It was a me'rah (cave) and a stone lay against it.

The last great sign (Otot)
11:39 Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) said:

" Take away the stone." Martha, ha achot (sister) of him who was dead, said to Him, "Adoni (אדני), by this time there is a stench: for he has been dead four days.
11:40 Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) said to her:

"Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of Elohim (אֱלֹהִים)?
11:41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) lifted up His eyes, and said, AVI, I thank You that You have heard Me.
11:42 And I know that You always hear Me: but because of the people which standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me."
11:43 When He had said these things, He cried out with a loud voice, "El'azar, come forth!."
11:44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with linen strips: and his face was bound about with a head wrapping (mitzefet). Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע)  said to them, Loose him, and let him go.
11:45 Then many of the Yehudim which came to Miryam, and had seen the things which Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) did, believed on him.
11:46 But some of them went their ways to the Prushim, and told them what things Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) had done.
11:47 Therefore the Rashei Kohenim and the Prushim gathered a council, and said, What are we doing? For this Man  works many signs (otot).
11:48 If we let him thus alone, all [men] will believe on him: and the Rhomaios shall come and take away both our place and nation.
11:49 But one of them who was the Kohen haGadol that same year said to them: "You know nothing at all,
11:50 nor do you take into account that it is expedient for you that one man die for the people and that whole nation not perish."
11:51 Now this he did not say on his own authority, but being Kohen Gadol that year, he prophesied that Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) should die for that nation;
11:52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of Elohim (אֱלֹהִים) that were scattered abroad.
11:53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.
11:54 Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) therefore walked no more openly among the Yehudim; but went thence to a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Efrayim, and there continued with His Talmidim.
11:55 And the Yehudim' Pesach was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Yerushalayim before the Pesach, to purify themselves.
11:56 Then sought they for Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע), and spoke among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What do you think, that he will not come to the feast?
11:57 Now both the Rashei Kohenim and the Prushim had given a orders that, if anyone knew where He was, he should report it, so that they might seize Him.

Beit Anyah - Aramaic: בית עניא  literal meaning house of poor or misery has traditionally been identified with the present-day West Bank city of al-Eizariya or el Azariyeh (Arabic (العيزرية), meaning "Place of Elazar"), site of the reputed Kever Elazar, located about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) to the east of Yerushalayim on the south-eastern slope of the Mount of Olives. According to Yochanan 1:19-28  there was another Beit Anyah "on the other side of the Yarden".
