    SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:18

    Y Betania estaba cerca de Jerusaln, como quince estadios;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - John 11:18

    Verse 18. Fifteen furlongs] About two miles: for the
    Jewish miles contained about seven furlongs and a half. So Lightfoot, and the margin.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 18. Now
    Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem , etc.] Which was a reason why them were so many of the Jews come there to condole the two sisters upon the death of their brother; and by this means the following miracle became more known there: it was about fifteen furlongs off ; that is, about two miles, for seven furlongs and a half made a Jewish mile, as appears from one of their canons f486 , which runs thus: they do not spread nets for doves, except it be distant from an habitable place, syr yl , thirty furlongs; which the commentators say are four miles: and still more expressly it is said f488 , that between Jerusalem and Zuck, (the place where the scape goat was had,) there were ten tents, and ninety furlongs, lym lkl hxjmw h[b seven and a half to every mile.

    Hence a furlong was called one seventh and a half of a mile f489 , which was 266 cubits, and two thirds of one.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 17-32 - Here was a house where the fear of God was, and on which his blessin rested; yet it was made a house of mourning. Grace will keep sorro from the heart, but not from the house. When God, by his grace an providence, is coming towards us in ways of mercy and comfort, we should, like Martha, go forth by faith, hope, and prayer, to meet him When Martha went to meet Jesus, Mary sat still in the house; thi temper formerly had been an advantage to her, when it put her a Christ's feet to hear his word; but in the day of affliction, the sam temper disposed her to melancholy. It is our wisdom to watch agains the temptations, and to make use of the advantages of our natura tempers. When we know not what in particular to ask or expect, let u refer ourselves to God; let him do as seemeth him good. To enlarg Martha's expectations, our Lord declared himself to be the Resurrectio and the Life. In every sense he is the Resurrection; the source, the substance, the first-fruits, the cause of it. The redeemed soul live after death in happiness; and after the resurrection, both body an soul are kept from all evil for ever. When we have read or heard the word of Christ, about the great things of the other world, we shoul put it to ourselves, Do we believe this truth? The crosses and comfort of this present time would not make such a deep impression upon us a they do, if we believed the things of eternity as we ought. When Chris our Master comes, he calls for us. He comes in his word and ordinances and calls us to them, calls us by them, calls us to himself. Those who in a day of peace, set themselves at Christ's feet to be taught by him may with comfort, in a day of trouble, cast themselves at his feet, to find favour with him.
