John 12:3; John 12:7 (New International Version)
Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus' feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.
"Leave her alone," Jesus replied. "[It was intended] that she should save this perfume for the day of my burial.
