John 12 : 1-8

Jesus Anointed at Bethany
 1  Six days before the Passover celebration began, Jesus arrived in Bethany, the home of Lazarus—the man he had raised from the dead.  2  A dinner was prepared in Jesus' honor. Martha served, and Lazarus was among those who ate [2]  with him.  3  Then Mary took a twelve-ounce jar of expensive perfume made from essence of nard, and she anointed Jesus' feet with it, wiping his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance.    4  But Judas Iscariot, the disciple who would soon betray him, said,  5  "That perfume was worth a year's wages. [5]  It should have been sold and the money given to the poor."  6  Not that he cared for the poor—he was a thief, and since he was in charge of the disciples' money, he often stole some for himself.
   7  Jesus replied, "Leave her alone. She did this in preparation for my burial.  8  You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me."
<<  12:2 Or who reclined.
<<  12:3 Greek took 1 litra [327 grams].
<<  12:5 Greek worth 300 denarii. A denarius was equivalent to a laborer's full day's wage.
