12:1Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
12:2There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.
12:3Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
12:4Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which should betray him,
12:5Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
12:6This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
12:7Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.
12:8For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.
12:9Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.
