Luke 18:4-14 (Third Millennium Bible)

View In My Bible
4 And for a while he would not, but afterward he said within himself, `Though I fear not God nor regard man, 5 yet because this widow troubleth me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.'" 6 And the Lord said, "Hear what the unjust judge saith. 7 And shall not God avenge His own elect, who cry day and night unto Him, though He bear long with them? 8 I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of Man cometh, shall He find faith on the earth?" 9 And He spoke this parable unto certain ones who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: 10 "Two men went up into the temple to pray, the one a Pharisee and the other a publican. 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. 12 I fast twice in the week; I give tithes of all that I possess.' 13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not so much as lift up his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, `God, be merciful to me a sinner!' 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."
