katapi HOME Luke 18:9-14 - The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector  Lk.18.9-14 (borders of Samaria)

18 9 He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and despised others: 18 10 "Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 18 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, 'God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 18 12 I fast twice a week, I give tithes of all that I get.' 18 13 But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, 'God, be merciful to me a sinner!' 18 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted."
