When the Jewish leaders see Jesus' rising popularity in light of Lazarus' resurrection, they respond, If we let him go on like this, everyone will believe in him, and the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation.”
Place (τόπος) can mean both an inhabited space (like a village), a physical structure (such as the temple), a place to live (BDAG entry 1). topos can also refer to a position held by someone or even a possibility.
The ESV place allows for the flexibility while the TNIV translates temple (see Acts 6:13f.; 21:28), reversing the NIV place.
