26:6 Now while Jesus was in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, 26:7 a woman came to him with an alabaster jar6 of expensive perfumed oil,7 and she poured it on his head as he was at the table.8 26:8 When9 the disciples saw this, they became indignant and said, “Why this waste? 26:9 It10 could have been sold at a high price and the money11 given to the poor!” 26:10 When12 Jesus learned of this, he said to them, “Why are you bothering this woman? She13 has done a good service for me. 26:11 For you will always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me!14 26:12 When15 she poured this oil on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial. 26:13 I tell you the truth,16 wherever this gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her.”
