Luke 18:9-14

RSV 9 He also told this parable to some who 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: RSV 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. RSV 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, 'God, I thank thee that I am not like other men, extortioners, 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. RSV 12 I fast twice a week, I give tithes of all that I get.' NIV 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.' RSV 13 But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat 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.' RSV 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for every one 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."
