Mark 14:3-9 (Friday)

3

And being in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, as He sat at the table, a woman came having an alabaster flask of very costly oil of spikenard. Then she broke the flask and poured it on His head.

4

But there were some who were indignant among themselves, and said, "Why was this fragrant oil wasted?

5

For it might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii and given to the poor. And they criticized her sharply.

6

But Jesus said, "Let her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a good work for Me.

7

For you have the poor with you always, and whenever you wish you may do them good; but Me you do not have always.

8

She has done what she could. She has come beforehand to anoint My body for burial.

9

Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her.
