Matthew 26:1-13 KJV

1 And it came to pass , when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,
2 Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified .
3 Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,
4 And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.
5 But they said , Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.
6 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,
7 There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.
8 But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation , saying , To what purpose is this waste?
9 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.
10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye * the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.
12 For in that she * hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial .
13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever * this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman * hath done , be told for a memorial of her.
