But a Samaritan who was traveling that way came upon the man, and when he saw him, his heart was filled with pity. 134
He went over to him, poured oil and wine on his wounds and bandaged them; then he put the man on his own animal and took him to an inn, where he took care of him.
The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. "Take care of him,' he told the innkeeper, "and when I come back this way, I will pay you whatever else you spend on him.' "
And Jesus concluded, "In your opinion, which one of these three acted like a neighbor toward the man attacked by the robbers?"
The teacher of the Law answered, "The one who was kind to him." Jesus replied, "You go, then, and do the same."
As Jesus and his disciples went on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha welcomed him in her home. 239
She had a sister named Mary, who sat down at the feet of the Lord and listened to his teaching.
Martha was upset over all the work she had to do, so she came and said, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her to come and help me!"
The Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha! You are worried and troubled over so many things,
but just one is needed. Mary has chosen the right thing, and it will not be taken away from her."
