Matthew 26:6–30

eNow when Jesus was in fBethany, in the house of Simon the leper, There came unto him a woman having gan alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on hhis head, as he sat at meat. But when ihis disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste? For this ointment might have been sold for jmuch, and given to the poor. 10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me. 11 For kye have the poor always with you; but lme ye have not always. 12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my mburial. 13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told nfor a memorial of her.

14 oThen one of the twelve, called pJudas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, 15 And said unto them, qWhat will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they rcovenanted with him for sthirty pieces of silver. 16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.

17 tNow uthe first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover? 18 And he said, Go into the city wto such a man, and say unto him, xThe Master saith, yMy time is at hand; I will zkeep the passover at thy house with my disciples. 19 And the disciples did as Jesus had aappointed them; and they made ready the passover.

20 Now bwhen the even was come, che sat down with the twelve. 21 And as they did eat, he said, dVerily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me. 22 And they were exceeding sorrowful, and ddbegan every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I? 23 And he answered and said, eHe that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me. 24 fThe Son of man goeth gas it is written of him: but fhwoe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it ihad been good for that man if he had not been born. 25 Then Judas, which betrayed him, kanswered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, lThou hast said.

26 llAnd as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and ||blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; mthis is my body. 27 And he took the cup, and ngave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; 28 For mthis is my oblood of the pnew testament, which is shed for qmany rfor the remission of sins. 29 But sI say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you tin my Father’s kingdom.

30 uAnd when they had sung an ||hymn, wthey went out into xthe mount of Olives.
