Martha served, while Lazarus was among those reclining at the table with him. NAS 3 Mary then took a pound of very costly perfume of pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped His feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. NIV 3 Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. NAS 4 But Judas Iscariot, one of His disciples, who was intending to betray Him, said, NIV 4 But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray him, objected, NAS 5 "Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred denarii and given to poor people?" NIV 5 "Why wasn't this perfume sold and the money given to the poor? It was worth a year's wages. " NAS 6 Now he said this, not because he was concerned about the poor, but because he was a thief, and as he had the money box, he used to pilfer what was put into it. NIV 6 He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it. NAS 7 Therefore Jesus said, "Let her alone, so that she may keep it for the day of My burial. NIV 7 "Leave her alone," Jesus replied. "[It was intended] that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial. NAS 8 "For you always have the poor with you, but you do not always have Me."

NAS 16 These things His disciples did not understand at the first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written of Him, and that they had done these things to Him. NIV 16 At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that they had done these things to him. NAS 17 So the people, who were with Him when He called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead, continued to testify about Him. NIV 17 Now the crowd that was with him when he called Lazarus from the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to spread the word.

NIV 18 Many people, because they had heard that he had given this miraculous sign, went out to meet him. NAS 19 So the Pharisees said to one another, "You see that you are not doing any good; look, the world has gone after Him."

NAS 25 "He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal. NIV 25 The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. NAS 26 "If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him. NIV 26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me. NAS 27 "Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, 'Father, save Me from this hour '? But for this purpose I came to this hour. NIV 27 "Now my heart is troubled, and what shall I say? 'Father, save me from this hour'? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour. NAS 28 "Father, glorify Your name." Then a voice came out of heaven: "I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again." NIV 28 Father, glorify your name!" Then a voice came from heaven, "I have glorified it, and will glorify it again." NAS 29 So the crowd of people who stood by and heard it were saying that it had thundered ; others were saying, "An angel has spoken to Him."

Walk while you have the Light, so that darkness will not overtake you; he who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes.

These things Jesus spoke, and He went away and hid Himself from them. NIV 36 Put your trust in the light while you have it, so that you may become sons of light." When he had finished speaking, Jesus left and hid himself from them. NAS 37 But though He had performed so many signs before them, yet they were not believing in Him. NIV 37 Even after Jesus had done all these miraculous signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him. NAS 38 This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet which he spoke: "LORD , WHO HAS BELIEVED OUR REPORT? AND TO WHOM HAS THE ARM OF THE LORD BEEN REVEALED?" NIV 38 This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet: "Lord, who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?" NAS 39 For this reason they could not believe, for Isaiah said again, NIV 39 For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere: NAS 40 "HE HAS BLINDED THEIR EYES AND HE HARDENED THEIR HEART, SO THAT THEY WOULD NOT SEE WITH THEIR EYES AND PERCEIVE WITH THEIR HEART, AND BE CONVERTED AND I HEAL THEM" NIV 40 "He has blinded their eyes and deadened their hearts, so they can neither see with their eyes, nor understand with their hearts, nor turn--and I would heal them."

NAS 42 Nevertheless many even of the rulers believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, for fear that they would be put out of the synagogue; NIV 42 Yet at the same time many even among the leaders believed in him. But because of the Pharisees they would not confess their faith for fear they would be put out of the synagogue; NAS 43 for they loved the approval of men rather than the approval of God. NIV 43 for they loved praise from men more than praise from God. NAS 44 And Jesus cried out and said, "He who believes in Me, does not believe in Me but in Him who sent Me. NIV 44 Then Jesus cried out, "When a man believes in me, he does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me. NAS 45 "He who sees Me sees the One who sent Me. NIV 45 When he looks at me, he sees the one who sent me. NAS 46 "I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.

NIV 47 "As for the person who hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge him. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save it. NAS 48 "He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day. NIV 48 There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; that very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day. NAS 49 "For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak. NIV 49 For I did not speak of my own accord, but the Father who sent me commanded me what to say and how to say it. NAS 50 "I know that His commandment is eternal life; therefore the things I speak, I speak just as the Father has told Me." NIV 50 I know that his command leads to eternal life. So whatever I say is just what the Father has told me to say."
