5But they said , Noton the feast day, lest there be an uproaramong the people.6Now when JesuswasinBethany,in the house of Simon the leper,7
There came unto him a womanhaving an alabaster box of very preciousointment,and poured itonhishead, as he sat at meat.
8But when hisdisciplessaw it, they had indignation , saying , To what purpose is thiswaste?9Forthisointmentmight have been sold for much,andgiven to the poor.10WhenJesusunderstood it, he said unto them,Why trouble ye the woman?for she hath wrought a goodworkuponme.11For ye have the pooralwayswithyou;butme ye havenotalways.12For in thatshe hath pouredthisointmentonmybody, she did it formyburial .13Verily I say unto you,Wheresoeverthisgospel shall be preachedin the wholeworld, there shall also this, that this woman hath done , be toldfor a memorial of her.14Thenone of the twelve,calledJudasIscariot,wentunto the chief priests,15
And said unto them, What will yegiveme,and I will deliverhim unto you?And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.16Andfrom that time he soughtopportunitytobetrayhim.17Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciplescame to Jesus,saying unto him,Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?18And he said , Gointo the cityto such a man,andsay unto him, The Mastersaith , Mytimeis at hand; I will keep the passoverat thy housewithmydisciples.19And the disciplesdidasJesus had appointedthem;and they made ready the passover.20Now when the even was come , he sat downwith the twelve.21And as they did eat , he said , Verily I say unto you,thatoneofyou shall betrayme.22And they were exceedingsorrowful , and began every one of them to say unto him,Lord,isitI?23And he answered and said , He that dippeth his handwithmein the dish, the same shall betrayme.24TheSon of mangoethas it is writtenofhim:butwoe unto thatmanbywhom the Son of man is betrayed ! it had beengood for thatmanifhehadnot been born .25ThenJudas,whichbetrayedhim,answered and said , Master,isitI?
