Mark 14:3-9 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

And when he was at Bethany, in the house of Simon leprous, and rested, a woman came, that had a box of alabaster of precious ointment spikenard; and when the box of alabaster was broken, she poured it on his head.[a]

But there were some that bare it heavily within themselves, and said, Whereto is this loss of ointment made?

For this ointment might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and be given to poor men. And they grumbled against her [And they groaned against her].

But Jesus said, Suffer ye her; what be ye heavy to her? she hath wrought a good work in [into] me.

For evermore ye shall have poor men with you, and when ye will, ye may do well to them; but ye shall not evermore have me. [For ye have ever poor men with you, and when ye will, ye be able to do well to them; forsooth ye shall not ever have me.]

She did that that she had; she came before to anoint my body into burying.

Truly I say to you, where ever this gospel shall be preached in all the world, and that that this woman hath done, shall be told into mind of him [and this thing that this woman hath done, shall be told into mind of her].

Mark 14:3-9 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

When he was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, even as he sat at food, there came a woman having an alabaster jar of anointing oil called nard, which was pure and costly. And she broke the jar and poured it on his head. And there were some who were displeased in themselves and said, Why this waste of oyntment? For it could have been sold for more than three hundred denarii, and the money given to the poor. And they grudged against her.

And Jesus said, Let her be in rest. Why do you trouble her? She has done a good work on me. For you will have the poor with you always, and whenever you wish, you may do them good. But me you will not have always. She has done what she could: she came beforehand to anoint my body for the burial. Truly I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the whole world, this also that she has done will be told, in remembrance of her.

And when he was in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at table, there came a woman having a box of ointment of Spikenard, very costly, and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.

[a]Therefore some disdained among themselves, and said, To what end is this waste of ointment?

For it might have been sold for more than [b]three hundred pence, and been given unto 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.

[c]For ye have the poor with you always, and when ye will ye may do them good, but me ye shall not have always.

[d]She hath done that she could: she came aforehand to anoint my body to the burying.

Verily I say unto you, wheresoever this Gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done, shall be spoken of in remembrance of her.

Mark 14:3-9 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head. And there were some that had indignation within themselves, and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made? For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence, and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her. And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me. For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always. She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying. Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached throughout the whole world, this also that she hath done shall be spoken of for a memorial of her.
