12 Revised Standard Version Passage

1Six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Laz'arus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead.The Anointing at Bethany Jn.12.1-8 (Bethany) | Mt.26.6-13 | Mk.14.3-9
2There they made him a supper; Martha served, and Laz'arus was one of those at table with him. 
3Mary took a pound of costly ointment of pure nard and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair; and the house was filled with the fragrance of the ointment. 
4But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples (he who was to betray him), said, 
5"Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denarii The denarius was a day's wage for a laborer and given to the poor?" 
6This he said, not that he cared for the poor but because he was a thief, and as he had the money box he used to take what was put into it. 
7Jesus said, "Let her alone, let her keep it for the day of my burial. 
8The poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me."
