Therefore Jesus before six days of pask came to Bethany, where Lazarus had been dead [where Lazarus was dead], whom Jesus raised.
And they made to him a supper there, and Martha ministered to him; and Lazarus was one of the men that sat at the meat with him.
Therefore Mary took a pound of ointment of true nard precious [Therefore Mary took a pound of ointment spikenard, or true nard, precious], and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hairs; and the house was full-filled with the savour of the ointment.
Therefore Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples, that was to betray him, said,
Why is not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to poor men [and given to needy men]?
But he said this thing, not for it pertained to him of needy men, but for he was a thief, and had the purses, and bare those things that were sent.
Therefore Jesus said, Suffer ye her, that into the day of my burying she keep that;
for ye shall evermore have poor men with you, but ye shall not evermore have me. [+forsooth ye shall ever have poor with you, soothly ye shall not ever have me.]
Therefore much people of the Jews knew, that Jesus was there; and they came, not only for Jesus, but to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from death [whom he raised from dead].
But the princes of priests thought [for] to slay Lazarus,
for many of the Jews went away for him [for many of the Jews for him went away], and believed in Jesus.
