1 Therefore Jesus before six days of pask came to Bethany, where Lazarus had been dead [where Lazarus was dead], whom Jesus raised.
2 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.
3 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.
4 Therefore Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples, that was to betray him, said,
5 Why is not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to poor men [and given to needy men]?
6 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.
7 Therefore Jesus said, Suffer ye her, that into the day of my burying she keep that;
8 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.]
9 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].
10 But the princes of priests thought [for] to slay Lazarus,
11 for many of the Jews went away for him [for many of the Jews for him went away], and believed in Jesus.
