Luke 18:9-14

KJV 9 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: NIV 9 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable: KJV 10 Two men went up into the temple to pray ; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. NIV 10 "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. KJV 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. NIV 11 The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself: 'God, I thank you that I am not like other men--robbers, evildoers, adulterers--or even like this tax collector. KJV 12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess . NIV 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.' KJV 13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying , God be merciful to me a sinner. NIV 13 "But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, 'God, have mercy on me, a sinner.' KJV 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased ; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted . NIV 14 "I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
