26:7 a woman came to Him having an alabaster
flask of very costly fragrant oil, and she poured it on
His head as He sat at the table.
But when His disciples saw it, they were
indignant, saying, "Why this waste?
For this fragrant oil might have been sold for much and

But when Jesus was aware of it, He said
to them, "Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a good
work for Me.
you have the poor with you always, but Me you do not have always.

fragrant oil on My body, she did it for My
life (clay pot) who is poured and filled with Holy Spirit equals to a
woman who poured fragrant oil to Jesus' head or body for His
life who is poured and filled with Holy
