The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector

9 He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and looked down on everyone else: 10 "Two men went up to the temple complex to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee took his stand a and was praying like this: 'God, I thank You that I'm not like other people b -greedy, unrighteous, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week; I give a tenth c of everything I get.' 13 "But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even raise his eyes to heaven but kept striking his chest d and saying, 'God, turn Your wrath from me e -a sinner!' 14 I tell you, this one went down to his house justified rather than the other; because everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted."
