Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence [from there] unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples. JH 11:54 And the Jews' passover was nigh [near] at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify [ceremonially cleanse WU] themselves. JH 11:55 Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast? JH 11:56 Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he [Jesus WU] were, he should shew [report] it, that they might take [arrest WU] him. JH 11:57

Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. JH 12:1 There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. JH 12:2 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard [aromatic oil from pure nard WU], very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour [fragrance] of the ointment. JH 12:3 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should [would] betray him, JH 12:4 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence [a year's wages], and given to the poor? JH 12:5 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had [was keeper of WU] the [money] bag, and bare [stole from WU] what was put therein. JH 12:6 Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against [for] the day of my burying hath she kept this. JH 12:7 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always. JH 12:8

Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead. JH 12:9 But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death; JH 12:10 Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on [in] Jesus. JH 12:11

On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, JH 12:12 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried [out], Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord. JH 12:13 And Jesus, when he had found a young ass [donkey], sat thereon; as it is written, JH 12:14 Fear not, daughter of Sion [Zion]: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt. JH 12:15 These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of [about] him, and that they had done these things unto him. JH 12:16

The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record [were testifying about it WU]. JH 12:17 For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle. JH 12:18 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail [accomplish] nothing? behold, the world is gone after him. JH 12:19
