14:03 And of his being in Bethany ...
  in the house of Simon the Leper, of his lying down.
  A woman came having an alabaster of ointment ...
  pure costly nard.
  Crushing the alabaster ...
  she poured it down on his head.
14:04 Now some were greatly displeased with themselves ...
  Why has the destruction of this ointment happened?
14:05 For this ointment was able to be sold for on up of 300 denarii ...
  and be given to the poor.
  And they snorted their displeasure to her.
14:06 But Jesus said ... Leave her!
  Why do you cause her "work"?
  She has worked an "ideal work" in me.
14:07 For you always have "the poor" with you ...
  and when you wish, you are able to "do good" for them.
  But you will not always have me.
14:08 What she had, she did.
  She prepared ahead of time to anoint my body ...
  into the burial.
14:09 And "amen" I say to you ...
  where ever the "good news" is preached into the whole cosmos ...
  what she did ...
  will be spoken in memory of her.
