Matthew 26:6-13 American Standard Version (ASV)

Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, there came unto him a woman having [a]an alabaster cruse of exceeding precious ointment, and she poured it upon his head, as [b]he sat at meat. But when the disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste? For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor. 10 But Jesus perceiving it said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me. 11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always. 12 For in that she [c]poured this ointment upon my body, she did it to prepare me for burial. 13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever [d]this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, that also which this woman hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.

Mark 14:3-9 American Standard Version (ASV)

And while he was in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having [a]an alabaster cruse of ointment of [b]pure nard very costly; and she brake the cruse, and poured it over his head. But there were some that had indignation among themselves, saying, To what purpose hath this waste of the ointment been made? For this ointment might have been sold for above three hundred [c]shillings, and given to the poor. And they murmured against her. But Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me. For ye have the poor always with you, and whensoever ye will ye can do them good: but me ye have not always. She hath done what she could; she hath anointed my body beforehand for the burying. And verily I say unto you, Wheresoever the [d]gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, that also which this woman hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.

Luke 7:36-50 American Standard Version (ASV)

36 And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. And he entered into the Pharisee’s house, and [a]sat down to meat. 37 And behold, a woman who was in the city, a sinner; and when she knew that he was [b]sitting at meat in the Pharisee’s house, she brought [c]an alabaster cruse of ointment, 38 and standing behind at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head, and [d]kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment. 39 Now when the Pharisee that had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were [e]a prophet, would have perceived who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him, that she is a sinner. 40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Teacher, say on. 41 A certain lender had two debtors: the one owed five hundred [f]shillings, and the other fifty. 42 When they had not wherewith to pay, he forgave them both. Which of them therefore will love him most? 43 Simon answered and said, He, I suppose, to whom he forgave the most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged. 44 And turning to the woman, he said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thy house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath wetted my feet with her tears, and wiped them with her hair. 45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but she, since the time I came in, hath not ceased to [g]kiss my feet. 46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but she hath anointed my feet with ointment. 47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little. 48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven. 49 And they that [h]sat at meat with him began to say [i]within themselves, Who is this that even forgiveth sins? 50 And he said unto the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

John 12:1-8 American Standard Version (ASV)

12 Jesus therefore six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus raised from the dead. So they made him a supper there: and Martha served; but Lazarus was one of them that [a]sat at meat with him. Mary therefore took a pound of ointment of [b]pure nard, very precious, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment. But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples, that should [c]betray him, saith, Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred [d]shillings, and given to the poor? Now this he said, not because he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and having the [e]bag [f]took away what was put therein. Jesus therefore said, [g]Suffer her to keep it against the day of my burying. For the poor ye have always with you; but me ye have not always.
