2 Chronicles 16:14
and they buried him in his own stately sepulchre, which he had hewn for himself in the city of David, and laid him on a couch which was full of sweet spices - yea of various kinds, made by the perfumer's art, - and they burned for him with an exceeding great burning.
What she had, she used, - She took it beforehand to anoint my body for the burial;
And, the Sabbath having passed, Mary the Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, that, coming, they might anoint him.
And, returning, they made ready spices and perfumes. And, on the Sabbath, indeed, they were quiet, according to the commandment;
but, on the first day of the week, at early dawn, unto the tomb, came they, bringing the spices which they had prepared.
Jesus, therefore, said - Let her alone, that, for the day of my burial, she may observe it;
There came, moreover, Nicodemus also, - he that came unto him by night at the first, - bearing a roll of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds' weight.
