Mark 14:8

8 She did what she could when she could - she pre-anointed my body for burial.

Mark 14:8 In-Context

6 But Jesus said, "Let her alone. Why are you giving her a hard time? She has just done something wonderfully significant for me.
7 You will have the poor with you every day for the rest of your lives. Whenever you feel like it, you can do something for them. Not so with me.
8 She did what she could when she could - she pre-anointed my body for burial.
9 And you can be sure that wherever in the whole world the Message is preached, what she just did is going to be talked about admiringly."
10 Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went to the cabal of high priests, determined to betray him.
