252And behold, a 3lawyer stood up to 4put him to the test, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to 5inherit eternal life?"
He said to him, "What is written in the Law? How do you read it?"27
And he answered, 6"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and 7your neighbor as yourself."
And he said to him, "You have answered correctly; 8do this, and you will live."29
But he, 9desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?"
Jesus replied, "A man 10was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead.31Now by chance a 11priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side.32So likewise 12a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.33But a 13Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion.34He went to him and 14bound up his wounds, pouring on 15oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him.
