Luke 7:36-50 - A Sinful Woman Anoints Jesus' Feet

36 And a certain one of the Pharisees asked him that he would eat with him. And having come into the Pharisee's house, he reclined. 37 And, behold, a woman in the city, who was sinful, knowing that he is reclining at table in the Pharisee's house, having brought an alabaster box of perfumed oil, 38 And stood at his feet behind, weeping, been to wet his feet with tears, and wiped with the hairs of her head; and she kissed his feet, and anointed with the perfumed oil.

39 And the Pharisee having called him, seeing, said within himself, This, if he were a prophet, had known who and what race of woman which had touched him: for she is sinful.

40 And Jesus having answered, said to him, Simon, I have something to say to thee. And he says, Teacher, speak.

41 Two debtors were to a certain money-lender: one owed five hundred drachmas, and the other fifty. 42 And they not having to pay, he bestowed as a gift upon both. Which of them therefore will love him the more? Say thou.

43 And Simon, having answered, said, I suppose, that to whom he bestowed more favor. And he said to him, Thou hast judged rightly, 44 And having turned to the woman, he said to Simon, Thou seest this woman? I came into thy house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: and she wet my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. 45 Thou gavest me no kiss: and she from when I came in left not kissing my feet. 46 Thou anointedst not my head with oil: and she anointed my feet with perfumed oil. 47 For which I say to thee, Her many sins are remitted; for she loved much: and he to whom little is remitted, loves little. 48 And he said to her, Thy sins are remitted.

49 And they reclining together began to say in themselves, Who is this who also remits sins?

50 And he said to the woman, Thy faith has saved thee; go in peace.
