The Gospel of Saint John 12:20-33

12:20
Now there were certain Gentiles among them, who came up to adore on the festival day.
12:21
These therefore came to Philip, who was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying: Sir, we would see Jesus.
12:22
Philip cometh, and telleth Andrew. Again Andrew and Philip told Jesus.
12:23
But Jesus answered them, saying: The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
12:24
Amen, amen I say to you, unless the grain of wheat falling into the ground die,
12;25
Itself remaineth alone. But if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world, keepeth it unto life eternal.
12:26
If any man minister to me, let him follow me; and where I am, there also shall my minister be. If any man minister to me, him will my Father honour.
12:27
Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour. But for this cause I came unto this hour.
12:28
Father, glorify thy name. A voice therefore came from heaven: I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.
12:29
The multitude therefore that stood and heard, said that it thundered. Others said: An angel spoke to him.
12:30
Jesus answered, and said: This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.
12:31
Now is the judgment of the 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 things to myself.
12:33
(Now this he said, signifying what death he should die.)
