John 12:7-9 International Children’s Bible (ICB)

Jesus answered, “Let her alone. It was right for her to save this perfume for today—the day for me to be prepared for burial. The poor will always be with you, but you will not always have me.”

The Plot Against Lazarus

A large crowd of Jews heard that Jesus was in Bethany. So they went there to see not only Jesus but also Lazarus. Lazarus was the one Jesus raised from death.

“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.
