3. Loved by the Beloved Disciples
6 aNow when Jesus was in bBethany, in the house of Simon the 1leper,
7 A woman came to Him, having an alabaster flask of ointment of great value, and she poured it on His head as He reclined at table.
8 But when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, Why this 1waste?
9 For this could have been sold for much and given to the apoor.
10 But Jesus, knowing it, said to them, Why do you trouble the woman? She has done a noble deed to Me.
11 For the apoor you have with you always, 1but you do bnot always have Me.
12 For in pouring out this ointment on My body, she has done it 1for My aburial.
13 Truly I say to you, Wherever 1this agospel is proclaimed in the whole world, 2what this woman has done shall also be told as a bmemorial of her.
