Jesus Anointed at Bethany

Mark 14

3 c And being in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, as He sat at the table, a woman came having an alabaster flask of very costly 1 oil of spikenard. Then she broke the flask and poured it on His head. 4 But there were some who were indignant among themselves, and said, "Why was this fragrant oil wasted? 5 "For it might have been sold for more than three hundred d denarii and given to the poor." And they e criticized 2 her sharply. 6 But Jesus said, "Let her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a good work for Me. 7 f "For you have the poor with you always, and whenever you wish you may do them good; g but Me you do not have always. 8 "She has done what she could. She has come beforehand to anoint My body for burial. 9 "Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is h preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her."
