"For this perfume might have been sold for over three hundred denarii, and the money given to the poor." And they were scolding her.

"For you always have 7the poor with you, and whenever you wish you can do good to them; but you do not always have Me.
"She has done what she could; 8she has anointed My body beforehand for the burial.
"Truly I say to you, 9wherever the gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be spoken of in memory of her."
