John 12:7-9 Darby Translation (DARBY)

Jesus therefore said, Suffer her to have kept this for the day of my preparation for burial;

for ye have the poor always with you, but me ye have not always.

A great crowd therefore of the Jews knew that he was there; and they came, not because of Jesus only, but also that they might see Lazarus whom he raised from among [the] dead.

John 12:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

“Leave her alone,” Jesus replied. “It was intended that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial. You will always have the poor among you,[a] but you will not always have me.”

Meanwhile a large crowd of Jews found out that Jesus was there and came, not only because of him but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead.
