Several US locations - seasonally
S-C: If you are reading TWO DIFFERENT King James Version Bibles from two different publishers, there is a chance that the terminology may be different. (Unfortunate, but it happens.)

Can you tell me which one's you are using? There should be a Publisher's Page near the front of both bibles and an ISBN number on that same page. Get me that info and the Chapter and Verse that you are referring to and I'll do some research and get back to you. There is enough translation confusion going on without two publishers misquoting the same KJV verse. Thanks, S-C.

Dear SC, Mary was a prostitute who Jesus forgave and she became his follower.
She loved him so much that she took her very expensive perfume and poured it on his feet, to clean them/rub them then she wiped his feet off with her hair.
Maybe you are getting 2 different stories mixed up.
You know churches annoint people's heads with oil?

SC, I don't think anybody ever annointed Jesus' head that the Bible mentions.
Are you sure you just didn't hear about or see on TV someone getting annointed on the forehead in Jesus' name?
