And one of the Pharisees desired him [Jesus WU] that he would eat with him. And he went into the Pharisee's house, and sat down to meat [at the table]. LK 7:36

And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner [had lived sinfully WU], when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box [jar] of ointment [perfumed oil WU], LK 7:37 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. LK 7:38 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner. LK 7:39 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat [something] to say unto thee. And he saith, Master [Teacher], say on. LK 7:40 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence [silver coins WU], and the other fifty. LK 7:41 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most? LK 7:42 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he [Jesus WU] said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged. LK 7:43 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. LK 7:44 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet. LK 7:45 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment. LK 7:46 Wherefore [therefore] I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven [he who is forgiven little WU], the same loveth little. LK 7:47  OVERCOME YOUR HARMFULNESS Our Frailty And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven. LK 7:48 And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also? LK 7:49 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace. LK 7:50
