11:44 And he came forth bound hand and foot with grave clothes - Which were wrapt round each hand and each foot, and his face was wrapt about with a napkin - If the Jews buried as the Egyptians did, the face was not covered with it, but it only went round the forehead, and under the chin; so that he might easily see his way.


People's Bible Notes for John 11:44


Joh 11:44 And he that was dead came forth. The earth had never beheld a more wonderful or startling sight. At once the sleeper arose, came forth, bound with his grave clothes, with the napkin still upon his face that had been bound under his jaw to keep it from falling. The lookers-on, astonished, dazed, were only recalled to themselves when the Lord bade them, "Loose him and let him go". He spoke as the Divine Word, and death obeyed. As he cried to Lazarus, "Come forth" (Joh 11:43), so shall he speak with the voice of an archangel to all that are in their graves, and they shall come forth and live (1Th 4:16).
