NAS 9 And He also told this parable to some people who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and viewed others with contempt: NIV 9 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable: NAS 10 "Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. NIV 10 "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. NAS 11 "The Pharisee stood and was praying this to himself: 'God, I thank You that I am not like other people: swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 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. NAS 12 'I fast twice a week; I pay tithes of all that I get.' NIV 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.' NAS 13 "But the tax collector, standing some distance away, was even unwilling to lift up his eyes to heaven, but was beating his breast, saying, 'God, be merciful to me, the 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.' NAS 14 "I tell you, this man went to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will 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."
