In diebus illis, mulier
quae erat in civitate peccatrix,
ut cognovit quod Jesus accubuit
in domo Simonis leprosi,
attulit alabastrum unguenti:
et stans retro secus pedes Domini Jesu,
lacrimis coepit rigare pedes ejus,
et capillis capitis sui tergebat:
et osculabatur pedes ejus,
et unguento ungebat. (Luke 7:37-38)

English.png English translation

And behold a woman
that was in the citie, a sinner,
as she knew that he was set downe
in the Pharasees house,
she brought an alabaster box of ointment:
and standing behind beside his feete,
she began to water his feete with teares,
& wiped them with the hears of her head,
& kissed his feete
& anointed them with the ointment.
 (Rheims New Testament, 1582)

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Azokban a napokban egy asszony,
aki bűnös volt a városban,
amint megtudta, hogy Jézus
a leprás Simon házában étkezik,
kenetet hozott egy alabástrom edényben.
Megállt hátul az Úr Jézus lábainál,
elkezdte könnyeivel öntözni a lábait,
megtörölte hajával
és csókolgatta lábait
és megkente kenettel.
