THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Matthew (Author Matthew)

26:6Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,

26:7There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.

26:8But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste?

26:9For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.

26:10When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.

26:11For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.

26:12For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.

26:13Verily 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 for a memorial of her.

Mark (Author John Mark)

14:3And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.

14:4And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made?

14:5For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her.

14:6And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me.

14:7For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always.

14:8She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.

14:9Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.

John (Author John)

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.
