“Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.”
King James Version (KJV)
11:39 Lord, by this time he stinketh - Thus did reason and faith struggle together.
Joh 11:39,40 Take ye away the stone. The large stone that closed the entrance, and which several persons would be required to remove. Lord, by this time he stinketh. The practical Martha suggests that decomposition has begun, not understanding his purpose.
