36 Now one of the Pharisees asked him to eat with him, and he entered into the house of the Pharisee [and] reclined at the table. 36 Now one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, so he went to the Pharisee's house and reclined at the table.
37 And behold, a woman in the town who was a sinner, [when she] learned that he was dining in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster flask of perfumed oil, 37 When a woman who had lived a sinful life in that town learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee's house, she brought an alabaster jar of perfume,
38 and standing behind [him] at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with [her] tears and was wiping [them] with the hair of her head and was kissing his feet and anointing [them] with the perfumed oil. 38 and as she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them.
39 Now [when] the Pharisee who invited him saw [this], 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." 39 When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, "If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is--that she is a sinner."
40 And Jesus answered [and] said to him, "Simon, I have something to say to you." And he said, "Teacher, say [it]." 40 Jesus answered him, "Simon, I have something to tell you." "Tell me, teacher," he said.
41 "There were two debtors [who owed] a certain creditor. One owed five hundred denarii and the other fifty. 41 "Two men owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii, and the other fifty.
42 [When] they were not able to repay [him], he forgave [the debts] of both. Now which of them will love him more?" 42 Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he canceled the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?"
43 Simon answered [and] said, "I suppose that [it is the one] to whom he forgave more." And he said to him, "You have judged correctly." 43 Simon replied, "I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled." "You have judged correctly," Jesus said.
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] with her hair. 44 Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair.
45 You did not give me a kiss, but from the time I entered, she has not stopped kissing my feet. 45 You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet.
46 You did not anoint my head with olive oil, but she anointed my feet with perfumed oil. 46 You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet.
47 {For this reason} 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." 47 Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven--for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little."
48 And he said to her, "Your sins are forgiven." 48 Then Jesus 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?" 49 The other guests 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." 50 Jesus said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you; go in peace."
