From Matthew Chapter 26 & John Chapter 12
26:7 There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very
precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.
26:8 But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To
what purpose is this waste?
26:9 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the
26:10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the
woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.
26:11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.
26:12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it
for my burial.
26:13 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 for a memorial of her.
12:3 Then 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.
12:4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, which
should betray him,
12:5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given
to the poor?
12:6 This 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.
12:7 Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath
she kept this.
12:8 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.
