So the sisters sent word to Jesus, "Lord, the one you love is sick."
King James Bible
Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.
American Standard Version
The sisters therefore sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.
Young's Literal Translation
therefore sent the sisters unto him, saying, 'Sir, lo, he whom thou dost love is ailing;'
John 11:3 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He whom thou lovest is sick - Nothing could be more simple, nor more modest, than this prayer: they do not say, Come and heal him: or, Command the disease to depart even where thou art, and it will obey thee: - they content themselves with simply stating the case, and using an indirect but a most forcible argument, to induce our Lord to show forth his power and goodness: - He is sick, and thou lovest him; therefore thou canst neither abandon him, not us.
