John 12:1-11

ESV 1 Six days before the Passover, Jesus therefore came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. MSG 1 Six days before Passover, Jesus entered Bethany where Lazarus, so recently raised from the dead, was living. ESV 2 So they gave a dinner for him there. Martha served, and Lazarus was one of those reclining with him at table. MSG 2 Lazarus and his sisters invited Jesus to dinner at their home. Martha served. Lazarus was one of those sitting at the table with them. ESV 3 Mary therefore took a pound of expensive ointment made from pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. MSG 3 Mary came in with a jar of very expensive aromatic oils, anointed and massaged Jesus' feet, and then wiped them with her hair. The fragrance of the oils filled the house. ESV 4 But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples (he who was about to betray him), said, MSG 4 Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples, even then getting ready to betray him, said, ESV 5 "Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?" MSG 5 "Why wasn't this oil sold and the money given to the poor? It would have easily brought three hundred silver pieces." ESV 6 He said this, not because he cared about the poor, but because he was a thief, and having charge of the moneybag he used to help himself to what was put into it. MSG 6 He said this not because he cared two cents about the poor but because he was a thief. He was in charge of their common funds, but also embezzled them. ESV 7 Jesus said, "Leave her alone, so that she may keep it for the day of my burial. MSG 7 Jesus said, "Let her alone. She's anticipating and honoring the day of my burial. ESV 8 For the poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me." MSG 8 You always have the poor with you. You don't always have me." ESV 9 When the large crowd of the Jews learned that Jesus was there, they came, not only on account of him but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. MSG 9 Word got out among the Jews that he was back in town. The people came to take a look, not only at Jesus but also at Lazarus, who had been raised from the dead. ESV 10 So the chief priests made plans to put Lazarus to death as well, MSG 10 So the high priests plotted to kill Lazarus ESV 11 because on account of him many of the Jews were going away and believing in Jesus. MSG 11 because so many of the Jews were going over and believing in Jesus on account of him. See How Your King Comes
