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.
Matthew 26:8 (KJV)
But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste?
Matthew 26:9 (KJV)
For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.

When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.
Matthew 26:11 (KJV)
For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.
Matthew 26:12 (KJV)
For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.
Matthew 26:13 (KJV)
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.
Matthew 26:14 (KJV)

Matthew 26:15 (KJV)
And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.

Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him,
John 12:5 (KJV)
Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
John 12:6 (KJV)
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.
