Matthew 26:10-12 New Testament for Everyone (NTE)
10 Jesus knew what they were thinking.
‘Why make life difficult for the woman?’ he said. ‘It’s a lovely thing, what she’s done for me. 11 You always have the poor with you, don’t you? But you won’t always have me. 12 When she poured this ointment on my body, you see, she did it to prepare me for my burial.
