Luke 18:9-14

NLT 9 Then Jesus told this story to some who had great self-confidence and scorned everyone else: NIV 9 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable: NLT 10 "Two men went to the Temple to pray. One was a Pharisee, and the other was a dishonest tax collector. NIV 10 "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. NLT 11 The proud Pharisee stood by himself and prayed this prayer: 'I thank you, God, that I am not a sinner like everyone else, especially like that tax collector over there! For I never cheat, I don't sin, I don't commit adultery, 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. NLT 12 I fast twice a week, and I give you a tenth of my income.' NIV 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.' NLT 13 "But the tax collector stood at a distance and dared not even lift his eyes to heaven as he prayed. Instead, he beat his chest in sorrow, saying, 'O God, be merciful to me, for I am 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.' NLT 14 I tell you, this sinner, not the Pharisee, returned home justified before God. For the proud will be humbled, but the humble will be honored." 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."
