26 Revised Standard Version Passage

6Now when Jesus was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, The Anointing at Bethany   Mt.26.6-13 ( Bethany ) | Mk.14.3-9 | Lk.12.1-8
7a woman came up to him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on his head, as he sat at table. 
8But when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, "Why this waste? 
9For this ointment might have been sold for a large sum, and given to the poor." 
10But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, "Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a beautiful thing to me. 
11For you always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me. 
12In pouring this ointment on my body she has done it to prepare me for burial. 
13Truly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what she has done will be told in memory of her."
