And behold, a certain legal expert stood up to test him, saying, "Teacher, what must I do so that I will inherit eternal life?"
And he said to him, "What is written in the law? How do you read [it]?"a27
And he answered [and]b said, "You shall love the Lord your God from all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind,c and your neighbor as yourself."d28
And he said to him, "You have answered correctly. Do this and you will live."
But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?"
Ande Jesus replied [and]f said, "A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell into the hands of robbers, who both stripped him and beat [him].g [After]h inflicting blows on [him],i they went away, leaving [him]j half dead.
Now by coincidence a certain priest was going down on that road, and [when he]k saw him, he passed by on the opposite side.
And in the same way also a Levite, [when he]l came down to the placem and saw [him],n passed by on the opposite side.
But a certain Samaritan who was traveling came up to him and, [when he]o saw [him],p had compassion.
And he came up [and]q bandaged his wounds, pouring on olive oil and wine, and he put him on his own animal [and]r brought him to an inn and took care of him.
And on the next day, he took out two denarii [and]s gave [them]tu to the innkeeper, and said, "Take care of him, and whatever you spend in addition, I will repay to you when I return.
Which of these three do you suppose became a neighbor of the man who fell among the robbers?"
So he said, "The one who showed mercy to him." And Jesus said to him, "You go and do likewise."
