1 ) "When he had heard therefore that he was sick," (hos oun ekousen hoti asthenei) "Then when he heard that he (Lazarus) ailed," was physically ill, in a serious way, Joh 11:1-4.

2) "He abode." (tote men emeinen) "He then remained or lingered," with purpose and intent regarding His response to the report, Ecc 3:1; Joh 6:6. Jesus never became hasty in His actions or conduct in any manner to excite His disciples, 1Co 14:40.

3) "Two days still in the place where he was." (en ho en topo duo hemeras) "in the (same) place where he was for a period of two days," in Bethabara beyond Jordan, some 28 to 30 miles away in Perea to the northeast, Joh 1:28; Joh 10:40. It was a very long day's journey there and then Jesus lingered two more days before starting up to the town of Bethany, where He was to find Lazarus who had been dead for four days, Joh 11:39; Mat 15:23; Luk 18:7.
