John 11:42

_ _ And — rather, “Yet.”

_ _ I knew that thou hearest me always, but because of the people that stand by I said it, that they might believe that thou hast sent me — Instead of praying now, He simply gives thanks for answer to prayer offered ere He left Perea, and adds that His doing even this, in the audience of the people, was not from any doubt of the prevalency of His prayers in any case, but to show the people that He did nothing without His Father, but all by direct communication with Him.
