Jesus Anointed at Bethany

bAnd while he was at cBethany in the house of Simon the leper,1 as he was reclining at table, a woman came with an alabaster flask of ointment of pure nard, very costly, and she broke the flask and poured it over his head. There were some who said to themselves indignantly, “Why was the ointment wasted like that? For this ointment could have been sold for more than three hundred denarii2 and dgiven to the poor.” And they escolded her. But Jesus said, “Leave her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a beautiful thing to me. For fyou always have the poor with you, and whenever gyou want, you can do good for them. But hyou will not always have me. iShe has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand jfor burial. And truly, I say to you, wherever kthe gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will be told lin memory of her.”
