Mark 141 Now after two days was the feast of the passover and the unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him with subtlety, and kill him: 2 for they said, Not during the feast, lest haply there shall be a tumult of the people. 3 And while he was in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having ▼ an alabaster cruse of ointment of ▼ pure nard very costly; and she brake the cruse, and poured it over his head. ▼
▼ 1) Or a flask 2) Or liquid nard4 But there were some that had indignation among themselves, saying , To what purpose hath this waste of the ointment been made? 5 For this ointment might have been sold for above three hundred ▼ shillings, and given to the poor. And they murmured against her. ▼

▼ 1) Or Watch ye, and pray that ye enter not39 And again he went away, and prayed, saying the same words. 40 And again he came, and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy; and they knew not what to answer him. 41 And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, ▼ Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough; the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is ▼ betrayed into the hands of sinners. ▼

▼ 1) Or sanctuary59 And not even so did their witness agree together. 60 And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee? 61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and saith unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? 62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven. 63 And the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What further need have we of witnesses? 64 Ye have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be ▼ worthy of death. ▼
