Luke 18:9-14

ESV 9 He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: MSG 9 He told his next story to some who were complacently pleased with themselves over their moral performance and looked down their noses at the common people: ESV 10 "Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. MSG 10 "Two men went up to the Temple to pray, one a Pharisee, the other a tax man. ESV 11 The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayedthus: 'God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. MSG 11 The Pharisee posed and prayed like this: 'Oh, God, I thank you that I am not like other people - robbers, crooks, adulterers, or, heaven forbid, like this tax man. ESV 12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.' MSG 12 I fast twice a week and tithe on all my income.' ESV 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!' MSG 13 "Meanwhile the tax man, slumped in the shadows, his face in his hands, not daring to look up, said, 'God, give mercy. Forgive me, a sinner.'" ESV 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted." MSG 14 Jesus commented, "This tax man, not the other, went home made right with God. If you walk around with your nose in the air, you're going to end up flat on your face, but if you're content to be simply yourself, you will become more than yourself."
