Matthew 26:6-16Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
6 And when Jesus was in Bethania, in the house of Simon the leper,
7 There came to him a woman having an alabaster box of precious ointment, and poured it on his head as he was at table.
8 And the disciples seeing it, had indignation, saying: To what purpose is this waste?
9 For this might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.
10 And Jesus knowing it, said to them: Why do you trouble this woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.
11 For the poor you have always with you: but me you have not always.
12 For she in pouring this ointment upon my body, hath done it for my burial.
13 Amen I say to you, wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, that also which she hath done, shall be told for a memory of her.
14 Then went one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, to the chief priests,
15 And said to them: What will you give me, and I will deliver him unto you? But they appointed him thirty pieces of silver.
16 And from thenceforth he sought opportunity to betray him.
