“There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.”
King James Version (KJV)
Mt 26:7 A woman. Mary, the sister of Lazarus. See Joh 12:3. An alabaster box. A vase. Of very precious ointment. Of spikenard, very costly and precious. It was worth 300 pence, or denarii, equivalent, when we consider the change in money values, to $300 now. Poured it on his head. She broke the vase and emptied it. See Mr 14:3-9.
