    SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:15

    y me alegro por vosotros, que yo no haya estado allí, para que creis; mas vamos a l.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 11:15

    Verse 15. I am
    glad for your sakes that I was not there] "I tell you plainly, Lazarus is dead: and I am glad I was not there-if I had been, I should have been prevailed on to have healed him almost as soon as he fell sick, and I should not have had so striking an occasion to manifest the glory of God to you, and to establish you in the faith." It was a miracle to discover that Lazarus was dead, as no person had come to announce it. It was a greater miracle to raise a dead man than to cure a sick man. And it was a still greater miracle, to raise one that was three or four days buried, and in whose body putrefaction might have begun to take place, than to raise one that was but newly dead. See ver. 39.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. And I am
    glad for your sakes that I was not there , etc.] At Bethany, before he died, or when he died; because he might have been prevailed upon through the solicitations of his dear friends, Mary and Martha, and through tender affection to Lazarus, to have prevented his death, by rebuking the distemper, and restoring him to health, or to have raised him immediately as soon as he was dead; and in either case the miracle would not have been so illustrious, nor have been such a means of confirming the faith of his disciples, as now it would be: to the intent ye may believe ; more strongly, that he was the Son of God, and true Messiah: nevertheless, let us go unto him ; to Lazarus, to the grave where he lies: the Syriac version reads, let us go there; to Bethany, where he lived, and died, and now lay interred.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-16 - Since we are sure to rise again at the last, why should not the believing
    hope of that resurrection to eternal life, make it as eas for us to put off the body and die, as it is to put off our clothes an go to sleep? A true Christian, when he dies, does but sleep; he rest from the labours of the past day. Nay, herein death is better tha sleep, that sleep is only a short rest, but death is the end of earthl cares and toils. The disciples thought that it was now needless for Christ to go to Lazarus, and expose himself and them. Thus we ofte hope that the good work we are called to do, will be done by some othe hand, if there be peril in the doing of it. But when Christ raise Lazarus from the dead, many were brought to believe on him; and ther was much done to make perfect the faith of those that believed. Let u go to him; death cannot separate from the love of Christ, nor put u out of the reach of his call. Like Thomas, in difficult time Christians should encourage one another. The dying of the Lord Jesu should make us willing to die whenever God calls us.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    15. For your sakes - to the intent ye may believe. These two clauses, which are separated in the A.V. and Rev., are, in the
    Greek order, placed together: for your sakes, to the intent ye may believe; the latter clause being explanatory of the former.

    That I was not there. Bengel's comment is beautiful and characteristic. "It accords beautifully with divine propriety that we read of no one having died while the Prince of life was present. If you suppose that death could not, in the presence of Jesus, have assailed Lazarus, the language of the two sisters, vv. 21, 32, attains loftier meaning; and the Lord's joy at His own absence is explained."

    Unto him (prov auton). Most touching. To him, as though he were yet living. Death has not broken the personal relation of the Lord with His friend.
