Matthew Called to Follow Jesus

9 And [as]a Jesus was going away from there, he saw a man called Matthew sitting at the tax booth and said to him, "Follow me!" And he stood up [and]b followed him. 10 And it happened [as]c he {was dining}d in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners were coming [and]e {dining}f with Jesus and his disciples. 11 And [when they]g saw [it],h the Pharisees began to say to his disciples, "Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?" 12 And [when he]i heard [it],j he said, "Those who are healthy do not have need of a physician, but those {who are sick}.k 13 But go [and]l learn what it means, "I want mercy and not sacrifice."m For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
