36 And a certain one of the Pharisees was asking him that he might eat with him, and having gone into the house of the Pharisee he reclined (at meat), 37and lo, a woman in the city, who was a sinner, having known that he reclineth (at meat) in the house of the Pharisee, having provided an alabaster box of ointment, 38and having stood behind, beside his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with the tears, and with the hairs of her head she was wiping, and was kissing his feet, and was anointing with the ointment. 39And the Pharisee who did call him, having seen, spake within himself, saying, ‘This one, if he were a prophet, would have known who and of what kind is the woman who doth touch him, that she is a sinner.’ 40And Jesus answering said unto him, ‘Simon, I have something to say to thee;’ and he saith, ‘Teacher, say on.’ 41‘Two debtors were to a certain creditor; the one was owing five hundred denaries, and the other fifty; 42and they not having wherewith to give back, he forgave both; which then of them, say thou, will love him more?’ 43And Simon answering said, ‘I suppose that to whom he forgave the more;’ and he said to him, ‘Rightly thou didst judge.’ 44And having turned unto the woman, he said to Simon, ‘Seest thou this woman? I entered into thy house; water for my feet thou didst not give, but this woman with tears did wet my feet, and with the hairs of her head did wipe; 45a kiss to me thou didst not give, but this woman, from what time I came in, did not cease kissing my feet; 46with oil my head thou didst not anoint, but this woman with ointment did anoint my feet; 47therefore I say to thee, her many sins have been forgiven, because she did love much; but to whom little is forgiven, little he doth love.’ 48And he said to her, ‘Thy sins have been forgiven;’ 49and those reclining with him (at meat) began to say within themselves, ‘Who is this, who also doth forgive sins?’ 50and he said unto the woman, ‘Thy faith have saved thee, be going on to peace.’
1 And it came to pass thereafter, that he was going through every city and village, preaching and proclaiming good news of the reign of God, and the twelve are with him, 2and certain women, who were healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary who is called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone forth, 3and Joanna wife of Chuza, steward of Herod, and Susanna, and many others, who were ministering to him from their substance.
