Jesus attends a feast in
the Holy Bible


Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, (26:6)

There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat [at meat]. (26:7)

But when his disciples saw [it], they had indignation, saying, To what purpose [is] this waste? (26:8)

For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor. (26:9)

When Jesus understood [it], he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me. (26:10)

For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always. (26:11)

For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did [it] for my burial. (26:12)

Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, [there] shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her. (26:13)


Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. (12:1)

There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him. (12:2)

Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. (12:3)

Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon's [son], which should betray him, (12:4)

Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? (12:5)

This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein. (12:6)

Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this. (12:7)

For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always. (12:8)

Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead. (12:9)
