Jesus Anointed at Bethany

3 1And while he was at 2Bethany in the house of Simon the leper,a as he was reclining at table, a woman came with an alabaster flask of ointment of pure nard, very costly, and she broke the flask and poured it over his head. 4 There were some who said to themselves indignantly, "Why was the ointment wasted like that? 5 For this ointment could have been sold for more than three hundred denariib and 3given to the poor." And they 4scolded her. 6 But Jesus said, "Leave her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a beautiful thing to me. 7 For 5you always have the poor with you, and whenever 6you want, you can do good for them. But 7you will not always have me. 8 8She has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand 9for burial. 9 And truly, I say to you, wherever 10the gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will be told 11in memory of her."
