When Jesus went into Simon the Pharisee's house and sat down at meat,
behold, a woman in the city which was a sinner,
as soon as she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house,
she brought an alabaster box of ointment,
and stood at his feet behind him weeping,
and began to wash his feet with tears,
and did wipe them with the hairs of her head,
and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.
