A Sinful Woman Anoints Jesus’ Feet

36 Now one of the Pharisees asked him to eat with him, and he entered into the house of the Pharisee [and]a reclined at the table. 37 And behold, a woman in the town who was a sinner, [when she]b learned that he was dining in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster flask of perfumed oil, 38 and standing behind [him] at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with [her] tears and was wiping [them]c with the hair of her head and was kissing his feet and anointing [them]d with the perfumed oil. 39 Now [when]e the Pharisee who invited him saw [this],f he spoke to himself, saying, "If this man were a prophet, he would have known who and what kind of woman [this is] who is touching him, that she is a sinner." 40 And Jesus answered [and]g said to him, "Simon, I have something to say to you." And he said, "Teacher, say [it]."h 41 "There were two debtors [who owed] a certain creditor. One owed five hundred denarii and the other fifty. 42 [When]i they were not able to repay [him],j he forgave [the debts]k of both. Now which of them will love him more?" 43 Simon answered [and]l said, "I suppose that [it is the one] to whom he forgave more." And he said to him, "You have judged correctly." 44 And turning toward the woman, he said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I entered into your house. You did not give me water for [my] feet, but she wet my feet with [her] tears and wiped [them]m with her hair. 45 You did not give me a kiss, but from the time I entered, she has not stopped kissing my feet. 46 You did not anoint my head with olive oil, but she anointed my feet with perfumed oil. 47 {For this reason}n I tell you, her sins--[which were] many--have been forgiven, for she loved much. But [the one] to whom little is forgiven loves little." 48 And he said to her, "Your sins are forgiven." 49 And those who were reclining at the table with [him] began to say among themselves, "Who is this who even forgives sins?" 50 And he said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you. Go in peace."
