Levi Called to Follow Jesus

13 And he went out again beside the sea,a and all the crowd was coming to him, and he began to teachb them. 14 And [as he]c was passing by, he saw Levi the [son] of Alphaeus sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, "Follow me!" And he stood up [and]d followed him. 15 And it happened that he {was dining}e in his house, and many tax collectors and sinners {were dining with}f Jesus and his disciples, for there were many and they were following him. 16 And the scribes of the Pharisees, [when they]g saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, began to sayh to his disciples, "Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?" 17 And [when]i Jesus heard [it]j, he said to them, "Those who are healthy do not have need of a physician, but those {who are sick}.k I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
