14 Revised Standard Version Passage

3And while he was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at table, a woman came with an alabaster flask of ointment of pure nard, very costly, and she broke the flask and poured it over his head.The Anointing at Bethany Mk.14.3-9 | Mt.26.6-13 | Lk.12.1-8
4But there were some who said to themselves indignantly, "Why was the ointment thus wasted? 
5For this ointment might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii The denarius a day's wage for a labourer, and given to the poor." And they reproached her. 
6But Jesus said, "Let her alone; why do you trouble her? She has done a beautiful thing to me. 
7For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you will, you can do good to them; but you will not always have me. 
8She has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand for burying. 
9And truly, I say to you, wherever the gospel is preached in the whole world, what she has done will be told in memory of her."
