Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
Now he said this, not because he was concerned about the poor, but because he was a thief, and as he had the money box, he used to pilfer what was put into it.

King James Bible
This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
He didn't say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief. He was in charge of the money-bag and would steal part of what was put in it.
