7 Revised Standard Version Passage

36One of the Pharisees asked him to eat with him, and he went into the Pharisee's house, and took his place at table.A Sinful Woman Forgiven Lk.7.36-50 (Capernaum)
37And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that he was at table in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment, 
38and standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment. 
39Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw it, he said to himself, "If this man were a prophet, he would have known who and what sort of woman this is who is touching him, for she is a sinner." 
40And Jesus answering said to him, "Simon, I have something to say to you." And he answered, "What is it, Teacher?" 
41"A certain creditor had two debtors; one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 
42When they could not pay, he forgave them both. Now which of them will love him more?" 
43Simon answered, "The one, I suppose, to whom he forgave more." And he said to him, "You have judged rightly." 
44Then turning toward the woman he said to Simon, "Do you see this woman? I entered your house, you gave me no water for my feet, but she has wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 
45You gave me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not ceased to kiss my feet. 
46You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment. 
47Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little." 
48And he said to her, "Your sins are forgiven." 
49Then those who were at table with him began to say among themselves, "Who is this, who even forgives sins?" 
50And he said to the woman, "Your faith has saved you; go in peace."
