14 katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

3And while he was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at table, a woman came with an alabaster flask of ointment of pure nard, very costly, and she broke the flask and poured it over his head.The Anointing at Bethany Mk.14.3-9 | Mt.26.6-13 | Lk.12.1-8Καὶ ὀντος αὐτοῦ ἐν Βηθανίᾳ ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ Σίμωνος τοῦ λεπροῦ κατακειμένου αὐτοῦ ἦλθεν γυνὴ ἐχουσα ἀλάβαστρον μύρου νάρδου πιστικῆς πολυτελοῦς· συντρίψασα τὴν ἀλάβαστρον κα τέχεεν αὐτοῦ τῆς κεφαλῆς.
4But there were some who said to themselves indignantly, "Why was the ointment thus wasted? ἦσαν δέ τινες ἀγανακτοῦντες πρὸς ἑαυτούς, Εἰς τί ἡ ἀπώλεια αὑτη τοῦ μύρου γέγονεν;
5For this ointment might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii, and given to the poor." And they reproached her. ἠδύνατο γὰρ τοῦτο τὸ μύρον πραθῆναι ἐπάνω δηναρίων τριακοσίων καὶ δοθῆναι τοῖς πτωχοῖς· καὶ ἐνεβριμῶντο αὐτῇ.
6But Jesus said, "Let her alone; why do you trouble her? She has done a beautiful thing to me.  ὁ δὲ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν, Ἄφετε αὐτήν· τί αὐτῇ κόπους παρέχετὲ καλὸν ἐργον ἠργάσατο ἐν ἐμοί.
7For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you will, you can do good to them; but you will not always have me. πάντοτε γὰρ τοὺς πτωχοὺς ἐχετε μεθ' ἑαυτῶν, καὶ ὁταν θέλητε δύνασθε αὐτοῖς εὖ ποιῆσαι, ἐμὲ δὲ οὐ πάντοτε ἐχετε.
8She has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand for burying.  ὃ ἐσχεν ἐποίησεν· προέλαβεν μυρίσαι τὸ σῶμά μου εἰς τὸν ἐνταφιασμόν.
9And truly, I say to you, wherever the gospel is preached in the whole world, what she has done will be told in memory of her." ἀμὴν δὲ λέγω ὑμῖν, ὁπου ἐὰν κηρυχθῇ τὸ εὐαγγέλιον εἰς ὁλον τὸν κόσμον, καὶ ὃ ἐποίησεν αὑτη λαληθήσεται εἰς μνημόσυνον αὐτῆς.

Notes: This page displays passages from the katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE.
The katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background.
