12:1 Then six days before the Pesach, Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) came to Beit Anyah, where El'azar was who had died, whom He raised from the dead.
12:2 There they made him a seudah (meal); and Martha served: but El'azar was one of them that sat at the table with him.
12:3 Then took Miryam a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) , and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
12:4 Then said one of His Talmidim, Yehudah Kerioth, Shimon's [son], which should betray Him,
12:5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
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.
12:7 But said Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) ,
"Let her alone; she has kept this for the day of My burial.
12:8 For the poor always you have with you; but Me you have not always.
12:9 Much people of the Yehudim therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) ' sake only, but that they might see El'azar also, whom he had raised from the dead.
12:10 But the Rashei Kohenim consulted that they might put El'azar also to death;
12:11 Because that by reason of him many of the Yehudim went away, and believed on Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) .
12:12 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) was coming to Yerushalayim,
12:13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried,
12:14 And Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע), found a young donkey, sat on it,
As it is written:
12:15 "Fear not, Bat Tzyon: Hinnei, Your Melekh is coming sitting on a donkey's colt."
12:16 His Talmidim did not understand these things at the first: but when Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written of Him, and [that] they had done these things to him.
12:17 The people therefore that was with him when he called El'azar out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.
12:18 For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.
12:19 The Prushim therefore said among themselves, "You see that you are accomplishing nothing. Look the world has gone after Him!"
12:20 Now there were were certain Hellenes among them that came up to worship at the feast:
12:21 Then they came to Philippos, who was from Beit-Tzaidah of Galil, and ask him saying. "Sir we wish to see Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע)."
12:22 Philippos came and told Andreas and in turn Andreas and Philippos told Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) .
12:23 And Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) answered them, saying, "The hour is come, that the BEN haADAM should be glorified."
12:24 Amen, amen, I say to you:
Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone: but if it die, it brings forth much fruit.
12:25 He that loves his life shall lose it; and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it to life eternal.
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] AVI honour.
12:27 Now is My soul troubled; and what shall I say? AVI, save Me from this hour: but for this cause came I to this hour.
12:28 AVI, glorify Your NAME. Then came there a voice from heaven, [saying], "I have both glorified [it], and will glorify [it] again. "
12:29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard [it], said that it thundered: others said, A messenger spoke to him.
12:30 Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) answered and said, This voice came not because of Me, but for your sakes.
12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all [men] to Me.
12:33 This he said, signifying what death he should die.
12:34 The people answered Him: "We have heard out of the Torah that Mashiach abides forever: and how say you, 'The BEN ha ADAM must be lifted up? Who is this BEN ha ADAM?
12:35 So Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) 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.
12:36 While you have light, believe in the light, that you may be the children of light. These things spoke Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) , and departed, and did hide himself from them.
12:37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
12:38 That the Dvar YeshaYahu ha Navi might be fulfilled, which he spoke:
"Adonay, who has believed our report? And to whom
has the arm of Adonay been revealed?
12:39 Therefore they could not believe, because that YeshaYahu said again,
12:40 He has 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.
12:41 These things said YeshaYahu, when he saw His Kavod, and spoke of him.
12:42 Nevertheless among the Rashei rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Prushim they did not confess [him], lest they should be put out of the shul:
12:43 For they loved the praise of men more than the tehilla Elohim (אֱלֹהִים).
12:44 Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) cried and said, He that believes on Me, believes not on Me, but on him that sent Me.
12:45 And he that sees Me sees him that sent Me.
12:46 I am come a light into Olam Hazeh, that whosoever believes on Me should not abide in darkness.
12:47 And if any man hear My words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge Olam Hazeh, but to save Olam Hazeh.
12:48 He that rejects Me, and receives not My words, has one that judges him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but Ha AVI which sent Me, he gave Me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
12:50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as Ha AVI said to Me, so I speak.
