4 Then one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot(F) (who was about to betray him), said, 5 “Why wasn’t this perfume sold for three hundred denarii[b](G) and given to the poor?” 6 He didn’t say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief.(H) He was in charge of the money-bag and would steal part of what was put in it.
